Oatworks: I’ve actually already mentioned this company’s oat-based smoothies on the blog, and I was pleased to see a bottle of the Blueberry Pomegranate included as it’s my favorite of the three flavors.

Beanfield’s Bean and Rice Chips: This was the first item I opened, and I LOVED them! Tons of flavor, packed with 4 grams each of protein & fiber per ounce, and not too salty. If I find this brand in a store, I will definitely buy a bag (or two).

Cooggies Oatmeal Raisin/Double Chocolate Cookies: I wanted to like these veggie-based cookies, but I’m just not a fan of prepackaged cookies. I will say that I couldn’t taste any veggie flavor, though!

Dark Chocolate Peanut Balance Bar: I’ll be honest, I’ve never liked Balance Bars. If you do, I’m sure this flavor will win you over, though.

EBOOST Natural Energy Booster: Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to try this because I breastfeed Lily; but I could definitely use an energy boost ;).

Rainbow Light Counter Attack: Ditto for this one. I take the Rainbow Light prenatal vitamins and love them, so I would definitely try this immunity booster if I wasn’t breastfeeding.

Nasoya Tofu coupon: I’m eyeing the super low-calorie shirataki noodles!

Reed’s Culture Club Kombucha coupon: I used this coupon to purchase a bottle of the cranberry ginger flavor, and it was awesome!! Every bit as good as my go-to G.T.’s Kombucha. I will be stocking up on my next Whole Foods trip.

Stonyfield Organic Greek Yogurt coupon: Our fridge is always stocked with Stonyfield; whole milk plain for Lily, fat free french vanilla for John, and usually a variety of flavors that I mix with plain yogurt as a dessert or snack. The coupon has already been used ;).

Salba Chia Bost: I’ve been sprinkling these ground chia seeds into my morning bowl of oatmeal, and I much prefer them to the whole seeds. These are worth checking out if – like me – you want the health benefits of chia seeds without the weird gelatinous consistency they take on when mixed with certain foods.
