I almost didn’t post all of these products at the same time, because the alliteration felt a little ridiculous, but these are my three favorite finds of the week, so forgive me. I’m so excited to share these with you, especially since so many of you were asking about the pita I posted on Wednesday!
My favorite breakfast of late has been the pancakes I made from the Kodiak Pancake mix I received a few weeks ago. (Disclaimer: I did receive this free of charge, but all opinions are my own.) You seriously need to check out this mix. I think it’s sold at Target in every state except Vermont. Vermont, you should jump on the bandwagon because this stuff is awesome. The ingredients list is full of things you can pronounce, but all you need to mix with it is water. Just water! Not to mention these are whole grain, packed with protein and fiber, but don’t have the dry chewiness of most whole grain mixes.
Seriously, get on it. This stuff is delicious. We mixed in a little bit of chocolate and I ate mine without anything else. Perfect just the way they are. New weekend favorite.
I mentioned these on Wednesday, and lots of you asked what brand they were. Here you go! It’s a new-t0-me brand called Joseph’s. Check out the website here. (No, I didn’t get these for free, I just really like them.)
The pitas are giant, only 80 calories (per half), and don’t taste like cardboard. What more could you want from a pita? Oh protein and fiber? Yeah, 5g protein and 4g of fiber. They also have medium pitas, where the WHOLE pita is only 60 calories! (Look for the flax seed ones!) Not bad, not bad at all. I foresee lots of pita in my future.
I tried a couple new brands of protein powder after this protein powder review round up. Laura sent me some samples of Arbonne protein powder. I really liked the flavor of this protein powder. It had a very strong vanilla taste, perfect for covering up all the kale I tossed in my smoothie. FYI, Laura will be handing out samples at the Richmond Vegetarian Festival, so keep an eye out for her if you’re in Richmond!
I’m also loving Sun Warrior’s Vanilla protein powder. If you’re in the market for a vegan plant-based powder, look no further. This stuff is delicious and mixes really well. Most vegan protein powders contain soy, but this one is soy-free! It’s a little on the expensive side, but the bag has lasted me a really long time. I just add half a scoop to my smoothies in the morning. So delicious! I’m sure this would also be great in a protein donut…
