Happy Mail ~ Nuts, Bamboo, Books, and More!
I know...I know...this looks like an awful lot of NUTS, doesn't it? Well, yes...it is...but of course I'm not going to eat them all at once. I was stocking up because they have a bunch of these items "At-Cost" this month.
The 4 packages in the back I have enjoyed other flavors of but not these so I thought I would try them! Mesquite Pod Maple Walnuts, Spinach Pesto and Pumpkin Seeds, Sesame Teriyaki Cashews and Almonds, and Lime Mojo Cilantro Pistachios and Pepitas! I like to keep some near my desk at work to munch on every once and a while when I get hungry and don't have any other items to eat at my desk. I also like to add them to salads!
In front you will see LOTS of Love Force Energy Bars. This is the first time I am trying these bars but the flavors sounded wonderful and I figured half of one or maybe even a full one to have on hand for those days I leave the house with no breakfast in my belly. These will last me a while...that's for sure!
Another thing I don't really NEED but continue to buy and stock up on are nut and seed butters. I can't help myself. They are wonderful. I only use a very little bit of them at a time and only about 1 or 2 times per week. I have really started to LOVE Jem Organics! And this Apricot Kernel Butter just sounded too interesting to pass up! I probably won't open these for quite some time because I have a number of other 'butters' I'm currently working on consuming.
The other one that is pictured is the Raw Black Sesame Tahini. I've liked other products from Living Tree Community Foods so when I saw this one I thought I would throw it in my virtual cart. You will see that I got Coconut Secrets's Aminos and Nectar. I have had both of those in the past and like them very much. It's been a while since I have had them in my pantry so I figured it was time to re-stock. Lately I have been using their Coconut Flour and Coconut Sugar which I am not really getting low on anytime soon.
And...finally...the small jar with gold top and white label is some of Angela Stokes-Monarch's Handmade Herbal Salve. I'm looking forward to trying it on my legs as well as some of the scars I have. The ingredients in this salve are...Comfry Leaf, Plantain Leaf, Matico Leaf, Rosemary Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Cacao Butter, Olive Oil, and Love.
I saw two newer flavors of Kale Chips that I had to try but it's a constantly reminder 'why the heck am I NOT making more of my own at home'. Perhaps that will be on my Goal Book list in the near future. I will say the Indian Kale Chips will NOT last past today...they are THAT GOOD. Also pictured here is a small Bamboo Bowl which is so darned cute! I'm slowly accumulating a Bamboo Collection which I adore. I'm thinking about a future purchase of one of their VERY LARGE Bamboo (Salad) Bowls but it's $90. Might have to work up to that one down the road! In the meantime another Bamboo Item I grabbed was this tray for my Silverware Drawer in my kitchen. A few months ago we tossed a bunch of our old eating utensils and purchased new ones and the ones I purchased were too long for the tray we had. When I saw this online it called to me. I guess one of my near-future projects will be totally re-organizing that drawer now that I have this tray, eh!? I finally decided to try the Moringa Leaf Extract, too! Looking forward to messing around with that...and...the surprise of the Sacha Inchi Protein Powder...hum...more on that down the road.
Last but certainly not least...these two books...and here's why...
The Coconut Oil one I wanted to have on hand to show our Wildtree Customers the benefits of Coconut Oil as a whole but to also educate myself about some of the home remedy type recipes that I might try, myself, at home soon. The other Raw Star Recipe Book just sounded really cool and interesting and I thought I would build my Raw Food Book Collection up a bit.
So - out of everything you see - what products have your tried? What items would you like to try?
