June Vegan Food Swap Part 1

It's that time again! Time to brag share with you what I got in my latest Vegan Food Swap parcel! This month, Me'shell sent out a FB message looking for someone to take on a second partner and I quickly accepted since that meant two times the shopping for goodies!! My extra partner was Gabby who blogs from The Veggie Nook. You should go check out her blog too, she has an especially yummy looking tofu scramble recipe up and many more too! Gabby sent me so many yummy treats! The big hit was the bag of gluten free pretzels in my son's opinion. We have these on hand all the time but as soon as he saw the little bag as I was opening up the parcel he grabbed it and ran off!

Here's the photos and play by play of what Gabby sent!

Here's the whole box before I started unpacking it...

A quick picture of the delicious gluten free pretzels before Mac claimed them as his own.

A bag of Cocoa Kissed Savi Seeds...there not nuts but they do taste like them! Delicious treat and a great source of Omega 3.

A bag of Chocolate Coconut Almonds from Q's Nuts that I am still saving for a rainy day chocolate craving!

A package of Eco Chefs Red Lentil Fusilli

A juice box of Vita Coco Coconut water which I had never tried before. I ended up making it into a Pink Lemonade Coconut Water Frosty on one of the days last week that hit 42C with the humidex. We were in need of some hydration for sure!

And a selection of Gabby's favourite teas, a Cherry Lara Bar (one of my very favourites), a small package of chia seeds and a few packets of stevia. Gabby is doing a sugar free challenge on her blog right now so I can see why she would send me some Stevia! 

Thanks again to Gabby for the wonderful parcel of goodies!! And to Me'Shell for hosting our Vegan Food Swap as well. If you live in Canada and would like to participate next month, check out Me'Shell's blog for all the details and sign up sheet. It is a lot of fun! Stay tuned for another post soon about my other partner from this months' swap!

  1. Wow, you got great stuff! Cherry larabars are my favourite too. Have never seen red lentil fusilli, sounds like something to search for!
