Monk Fruit. I do like a lot of the products I have tried from So Delicious so far!
Another thing I found at The Co-Op over this past weekend were Annie Chun's Seaweed Snacks. I've had these before but it's been a while...so I thought I would pick some up while I was there! I'm glad I did! I decided on the Brown Sugar, the Sesame, and the Wasabi. They are all marked Vegan! YAY! Seaweed in general is a very nutritious food!
Seaweed packs super-high amounts of calcium—higher than broccoli—and in terms of protein, it’s almost as rich as legumes.
There’s a good amount of vitamins B-12 and A and it’s a great
source of fiber. Seaweed is mostly soluble fiber, the kind that turns into a gel, slowing down the digestive
process, thus inhibiting the absorption of sugars and cholesterol.
I eat Seaweed moderately because of my history of digestion issues. I don't want to eat too much of it in a short amount of time because I don't want my digestive system to be slowed down. Altho - that was more of a problem when I was eating dairy and not as much now that I eat a veg*n diet.
These are crunchy but not overly crunchy to bother my teeth. They are VERY flavorful, too! YUM! You know how when you buy a package of something and you open it - it looks like over half of the contents are already gone? Well, with this bag of Chickpeas that was NOT the case! There are MANY lovely little chickpeas in there and the contents are packaged fairly hearty! They are also packed with a good amount of Protein and Fiber, too! 1-ounce of these has 6 grams of protein! I have other new-to-me foods I will be posting in the near future, too, but I wanted to share these snacks with you right away!
Yum on the coconut milk and chickpeas, I need to try making my own too!ReplyDelete
I hope to start in with the Dehydrated items again too! I'll keep you posted :)Delete
Coconut milk with mint and chocolate? That's interesting. That day (today's post), I had what they called the Horlicks Monster - very thick Horlicks with vanilla ice cream added plus mint and Oreos. I forgot to take a pic of that but anyway, I can't say I was all too excited about the taste. To each his own, I guess.ReplyDelete
Horlick's? I'll have to check that out! I'm not familiar! I like the name tho...Horlick's Monster! Sounds like something out of Harry Potter! LOLDelete
Mint & Chocolate is my hands down favourite combo too! My hubby came home with something similar, I think it was soy based though which I try to avoid. I'll have to look for the coconut milk one, it looks awesome.ReplyDelete
I love seaweed snacks! My health issues call for them hehe, I guess I'm lucky that way (no thyroid function = sea veggies).
Mmm I love chickpea snacks too. I have a recipe to roast my own, I haven't made them yet, but I should.
Ahhhhhh! Two Peas in a Pod, I tell ya! I do like the Almond, Coconut, and Cashew Milks best thus far :)Delete
I hope to do some in the dehydrator soon for some spicy chickpea snacks, I think :)
