Sweet Earth Natural Foods

Image
Today we are reviewing Sweet Earth Natural Foods. They make healthier frozen meals that are perfect for those times when you just don't have enough time or energy to cook something yourself. 
We believe food traditions endure for a reason—they allow us to thrive. Millennia have taught cultures what works, and at Sweet Earth we're doing our best to listen. And here's what we've learned: interesting flavors, vibrant colors, and complex textures are the best for our bodies. Follow your nose to those, and there you will find protein, vitamins, probiotics, fatty acids, fibers, it goes on! Inventive cooking means nutritious living. The best for your body: that's our passion.

Here's some info about their products from their website: Form follows function—the classic truth that inspired our functional burritos. Let's be honest: skip the toast. Veggies and complex grains, omega-3 and probiotics, fiber and protein—that's what your body deserves when you start you…

Passionut Pumpkin Cake Bites

Image
Passionut was kind enough to send us some of their Pumpkin Spice Nut and Seed Butter to try in exchange for an honest review. We were not compensated monetarily for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own. 

We enjoyed this nut and seed butter on top of muffins, in our oatmeal, on our waffles, but our favorite way to eat it was inside of my recipe for Passionut Pumpkin Cake Bites! 
Passionate Pumpkin Cake Bites
Ingredients: ~1/2 cup finely Shredded carrot 1/2 cup coconut flour 1/2 cup Nuts-N-More Almond Whey Protein 1/2 cup Passionut Pumpkin Spice Nut butter 2 tablespoons Coconut Almond Milk 1 tsp Cinnamon 1 pack Made in Nature Fruit Fusion apple cinnamon dried fruit snacks

Next, switch to the normal food processor blade and throw all other remaining ingredients inside for about 2 minutes.
Roll into balls and store in fridge or freezer! We enjoy them both ways. 
These bites are super easy a…

Mikey's Muffins

Image
We reviewed Mikey's English Muffins in the past, and they have recently come out with some new products. They generously sent some of the new muffin tops, bread, and pizza crusts, as well as some english muffins because they have changed slightly since we last reviewed them.  We were not compensated monetarily for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own.
Our Thoughts: Our favorite new product was definitely the muffin tops! The lemon blueberry was my favorite and was perfectly light and fruity as a dessert or sweet part of breakfast. I made a oatmeal, yogurt, muffin, and fruit parfait with a lemon blueberry muffin top in an almost empty peanut butter jar and it was mighty tasty! Jared loved the chocolate muffin tops with peanut butter for a snack and also as a sweet addition to breakfast. 
The english muffins were delicious as well. The cinnamon raisin was a great base for a peanut butter and egg sandwich. We used the toasted onion english muffins for our mini burge…

Hope Foods Hummus

Image
Hope Foods sent us some vouchers to try their hummus in exchange for a review.  We were not compensated monetarily, just sent free product coupons. All opinions are our own.  I love this info from their website: The freshest ingredients make for the best tasting products. So we source as much as we can—from our garbanzo beans to many of our spices—using time-tested relationships with local farmers across the American southwest and beyond. Our partners share our values around honest ingredients, clean water, and even agricultural job creation.

Our Thoughts: Jared and I both LOVED each and every flavor. The Kale Pesto was my all time favorite and I don't even like kale. It tasted just like pesto and I wanted to put it on EVERYTHING, so I did :) 
We made mini burgers using ground meat, Mikey's Toasted Onion English Muffins, and hummus and they were SO flavorful! Of course, sweet potato fries were the perfect complement to the burgers. 
One day, I mixed together chicken, zucchini, a…

Peanut Butter Bark

Image
Today I created a brand new recipe using Purely Inspired Powdered Peanut Butter. 

I know I am pretty much the only person who doesn't like chocolate, but I also know that most people LOVE peanut butter, so I created this peanut butter lover's dream healthy dessert! (or anytime snack because let's be real, peanut butter is ALWAYS good) It is super simple to make. 
Peanut Butter Bark  Ingredients: 1/2 cup coconut oil 1/2 cup Purely Inspired Peanut Butter 1/2 cup peanuts 1 tsp NuStevia Simple Syrup 
First, heat the coconut oil and powdered peanut butter on LOW. Stir until all of the mixture is smooth and there aren't any coconut oil clumps remaining. 
Next, add the tsp of NuStevia and 1/2 cup of peanuts. 
Then, spray a glass pan with nonstick spray (or you can rub more coconut oil on it) and pour the mixture inside. 
Place it in the freezer for about 20 minutes. 
Lastly, break it up into pieces and enjoy! (FYI, the pieces will be different sizes)

These are super quick to…
