I hope you are all enjoying your week so far! After some difficulties with WordPress im totally back and ready to go. I’m glad you all are still going strong on the Ab-Solutley Fabulous Challenge, I still can’t believe that it’s just about half way over.
When I saw these at Target I immediately grabbed a couple.
These snacks by the Funky Monkey Snack Company are delicious! The Funky Monkey Snack Company (how fun is that to say by the way? :)) is all about making fresh and healthy snacks using real fruit that has been freeze-dried.
Each one ounce bag contains a full serving of fruit, and contain around 50 calories. Plus they come in a bunch of fun names such as Jivealime, Purple Funk and Pink Pineapple. They are also free of un-natural sugars, preservatives and colorings like most pre-packaged snacks out there. Did I mention that they are also raw, vegan and gluten free?
I sampled the Bananamon and the Carnival Mix…
Bananamon – I love these! They are crunchy, sweet and oh so cinnamony. They aren’t to banana-ey either which is the problem that I have with some commercial banana chips. LOVE!
Carnival Mix – This flavor was good. It was filled with bananas, papayas, pineapple and apples. It was actually really tart which surprised me. This flavor was delicious though, just expect a little kick from the papayas and the apples.
The verdict would I buy them again? A big fat yes, these things are serisouly addictive. If you get the chance pick some up you will love them!
Have you ever tried these?
For my home ec class we are having to put together a cook book of recipes that we can use when we move out and get a place of our own. I am on the hunt for the five perfect recipes for each of these categories…
- Main Dishes
- “Family” Recipes
I am curious to hear some of your favorite recipes that you have collected. What are some recipes that have become permanent staples in your kitchen?
Tonight we are going out to celebrate my friends 18th birthday! I still cant believe that I am old enough to have friends that are 18. My own eighteenth birthday is going to be coming up in just about three months. WOW! I am a little anxious though, we are going to Buffalo Wild Wings. Ugh. Sometimes I can feel pressured by my friends to “just eat a little meat” or to “have a bite of cheese, it wont hurt.” Sometimes I get a little frustrated because I wish my friends would just understand that this is a lifestyle I have chosen, and it’s not a special diet I am using to lose weight, or make a statement.
Even though they know that I am vegan, they don’t respect me and always end up choosing the most un veg-friendly of places and are unwilling to compromise. I have never been to BW3’s either, but I am hoping that they will be accommodating!
Wish me luck tonight! 🙂
Question of the day – How do you deal with friends and family members who can be unacceptable of your healthy habits?
