Alter Eco Grains- Alter Eco surprised me with a package that included some of their quinoa, rice and some other dessert goodies (coming in another post). I love their grains and think that they make awesome additions to meals. These products are organic. I have used the ruby red rice in a soup before and enjoyed it and made a Greek quinoa salad with their quinoa. Eating whole grains is important because they are good sources of fiber, protein and vitamins/minerals. I rarely ever eat white rice or refined grains and prefer whole grain pastas, rice and quinoa.
Kayem Artisan Sausage- These products are all for my husband. He loves sausage. Me on the other hand, I do not eat much sausage but am happy to cook some for him on occasion. I chose three flavors of this sausage for him including fire-roasted pepper jack, andouille and sweet pepper provolone. He chose the fire-roasted pepper jack to try first and really enjoyed them.
3. Veggie Patch- We were sent a variety of products from Veggie Patch including falafel, red lentil cakes, meatless burgers, savory spinach bites and Mediterranean patties. We eat a lot of vegetarian meals because they are delicious and having some on hand that can quickly be cooked on a busy day is awesome! A lot of times in the evening, Troy and I do not feel like cooking from scratch and just want dinner thrown together ASAP. Veggie Patch foods are great for this! These products have 5-11 grams of protein which is great!
Our favorite so far is the falafel since we love Meditteranean foods. I also like the meatless burgers a lot. Just put on a whole-wheat bun with lettuce, tomato, onions, mustard, etc. and you have your entree ready to go quickly. These have no GMOs and can be frozen or refrigerated. I think that once Adalyn is older, she may like these too since they are easy to pickup and tasty.
