I get the small organic box and the grocer also is dedicated to helping “… grow, support and encourage sustainable local agriculture”. And as you can see, several of the items did come from local farms.
As a side note, I seem to have a ‘new foods challenge’ of my own nearly every week, cool!
June 3 – Cauliflower & Eggplant
June 10 – two the previous week
June 17 – Mango
June 24 – Garlic Scapes
July 1 – Dandelion Greens
I don’t have any prizes to give, but I do agree with Katie (a.k.a. CCV) over at Chocolate-Covered-Katie, we should seek out and try new stuff regularly. Who knows what delights we will find!
Hopefully it doesn’t seem like I’m stalking CCV, but being a new vegan, (and also loving chocolate) I’m interested in what a seasoned vegan has been eating. So I’ve also tried some new foods that are not from the produce section… (Thanks CCV!)
Kamut Flakes – using CCV’s blended-grain technique I made a really good breakfast that rivals my love of cream of wheat! I called it Cream of Kamut… a future post? maybe
PB & Co – Dark Chocolate Dreams – good, would have liked more chocolate though
LaraBar Jocalat – Chocolate Cherry – I’m not a big ‘power bar’ person, but this is definitely something to grab when I’m hungry & in a hurry, much better than fast food!
Amy’s Bistro Burgers – Nice! I’m a big garden burger fan, but these will definitely join my ‘freezer pantry’!
Irish-style Oats – TBA – will probably try this weekend.
Zico coconut water – refreshing, I put it in a fruity smoothie after my morning walk.
Now I am capable of finding new things on my own! Really I am! Here’s some of my own finds…
Kashi Frozen Entrees – very good, I’ve found 6 vegan varieties at my local Harris Teeter!
- Coconut Yogurt – favs: Blueberry and Raspberry
- Coconut Ice Cream – favs: Chocolate and Mocha Almond Fudge
- Soy Ice Cream Sandwiches – fav: Chocolate
- Fruit Sweetened Soy Ice Cream – fav: Pistachio Almond
Kashi cheese-less pizza – Sicilian Veggie – Very good!
Amy’s cheese-less pizza – Roasted Vegetable – Yummy!
Turtle Mountain So Delicious…
Vegan General Tso Chicken – Whole Foods Deli – this has quickly become a food that I have to try not to buy EVERY time I go to whole foods! Definitely a favorite!
So, check out the isles, the freezer section, the deli section, even the bread section… see if you can find something new, add it to your cart… you never know, it might become a favorite!
