Thinking about trying a plant based or gluten free lifestyle but not sure if it will require that you make flavor sacrifices? Today I am sharing some of my summer health conscious favorites, in collaboration with BabbleBox, so you can be happy and healthy at the same time!
This is a sponsored post, all thoughts are my own and details are shared about products that were shared with me, so that I could share with you.
The summer heat makes even having your dessert hard without it melting. You are gonna love one of my new favorites – Ice Cream Bowls that keeps your ice cream nice and cold. Allowing you to enjoy your ice cream and have a conversation with friends too at the same time.
BOWLZ Ice Cream Bowls
With BOWLZ your cold dishes like smoothie bowls, ice cream and other frozen desserts are kept cold without having to rush through them. Now you can enjoy your dessert and savor the flavor without fear of it melting before you get through it.
And as if that wasn’t good enough, they can be used at home or on the go. With the thermal coated, double walled bowl your ice cream won't just fall out if you happen to tip the bowl. And it’s lightweight and durable too, making it easy to carry in bags for a picnic or family outing.
Anything that allows me to have my ice cream and enjoy it too, more than I already do, is a win, yall! You can check out the details here on how to get your own BOWLZ with this special offer.
The kids love a big ol' bucket of Neapolitan, but now I gotta make my homemade butter pecan! Not completely health conscious, but remember I said smoothie bowls too for health conscious and summer combo.
Pure Farmland Plant Based Protein
My husband keeps threatening that he is gonna stop eating meat. Probably to balance all the ice cream we keep eating around here.
And it’s a threat to me, because I can't imagine a life lived off of just vegetables. What happens when you want some sausage with your pancakes? Or a burger at the BBQ?
Whether you are going fully meatless or just want to eat meat a little less, Pure Farmland has a whole line of plant based protein meat substitutes that keeps you from feeling like you are missing anything.
Pure Farmland is committed to protecting the American farm lands. Through its Pure Growth Project, grants are issued to eligible community farms, gardens and non-profit organizations.
Every time a Pure Farmland purchase is made there is a donation made to cover the cost of protecting one square foot of farmland.
Recently I made the Simple Seasoned Plant Based Burger Patties for dinner and the whole family loved them! Even that little one, who claims to not eat burgers (whose child is he?).
Simple and easy to cook, I made them in a skillet on the stovetop. I wanted to cook them on the grill, but we've been getting all the rain here. I topped them with a slice of my favorite cheese – Gouda, shredded lettuce and Tuttorosso Petite Diced Tomatoes in place of ketchup. They were great!
Tuttorosso Petite Diced Tomatoes
Tuttorosso Tomatoes, a sustainably produced brand, are steam sealed and fresh without any preservatives. They are the closest you are gonna get to that fresh garden taste in a can.
It’s always cool to learn the story behind the brands you buy and use. Knowing that these brands are not only better for me, but that they are doing good in the community as well, makes me feel good from the inside out.
SMASHCRISPY DIPPED from SMASHMALLOW
Snack time happens in my house, what feels like all darn day. Smashcrispy Dipped from Smashmallow, is not filled up with all of the “extras”, and is perfect for the whole family. Peanut free and gluten free, unlike traditional crispy rice treats.
These tasty treats are coming to a local Kroger near you. You can check out here to see where SMASHCRISPY DIPPED can be found in your area.
Now you can eat good and do good all at the same time!
These are all summer favs for the health conscious perfect for a BBQ or a quick meal indoors keeping away from the heat.
