vegan cutsIt’s a month into the new year – how are you doing with your resolutions?

If one of your resolutions were to eat healthier – maybe trying vegan snack options – well, then I have a tip for you.

It’s easy to sign up to get a monthly snack box full of sample vegan snack options to try from Vegan Cuts!

Vegan Cuts

I know when I was transitioning to a vegan lifestyle, just gaining knowledge of vegan products that were out there was so important (oh and did I mention FUN?!)

Here are the samples that came in a recent box I received from Vegan Cuts:

The 3 nuts

The Mango Tangerine Drink Chia! drink (shown above on the left) was pretty tasty. Not too sweet and high in antioxidants, B Vitamins and omega 3s, it would be a great drink to have chilled post workout. And at only 50 calories and the added benefit of chia seeds, this drink is sure to aid in your post exercise recovery. Vegan Cuts is offering a Drink Chia! sampler pack with 4 flavor options in their shop now to try.

Yes, Vegan Cuts also usually has deals on full-size versions of the sample products they send out in their snack boxes.

See the little jar next to the larger Chia Drink bottle in the photo above? All I can say, is thank goodness I don’t have a nut allergy because I would be so sad to be deprived of The 3 Nuts salted caramel peanut butter! Oh my GOSH is this nut butter YUMMY!! (I do have a thing for anything with caramel in it too!)  Right now you can get a full-size two pack over at Vegan Cuts for only $15!

The 3 Nuts peanut butter was especially tasty on the Mary’s Gone Crackers gluten free super seed cracker sample that came in my box also (see below left)!

The Mario Foods snack olives (above right) were a perfect compliment to lunch at my desk. They made lunchtime feel at work feel a bit more glamorous actually.

Mighty Leaf Tea

I’m a big tea drinker, and Mighty Leaf is one of my favorite brands to carry with me, well, everywhere. So, I was super excited to see a tea bag sampling in my box. I love seeing these tea bags expand in hot water and then smelling the delicious aromas that come out of them!! I find that this tea (made with premium tea leaves, natural herbs, blossoms and flowers) never becomes bitter as it steeps – to me, a sign of it’s excellent quality.

Here’s a link to a sampler pack of Mighty Leaf teas:

Mighty Leaf Tea Mighty Leaf Variety, Whole Leaf Pouch, 1.36-Ounces, 15-Count

Bumble Bar

Don’t be thrown off by the Bumblebar in the above photograph. You may think, because of the name, that there is honey in this bar, but I checked the ingredients (and I trust Vegan Cuts) and nope, no honey. Just simply great taste! I tend to like to have a little, healthy snack in the afternoons at my desk before heading to the gym. What a treat it was to have this bar with a little cup of tea. The chocolate flavor was a bonus as it didn’t have that “funny” chocolate taste that can so often exist in “healthier” chocolate flavor snacks. The crispy brown rice and sesame seeds gave it a nice crunchy texture, too.

If you’d like to try them, here’s a link to a box of Chocolate BumbleBars:

BumbleBar Gluten Free Organic Energy Chocolate Crisp, 1.4-Ounce Bars, 12-Count Box

It’s true, as the package says, The Hemp Hearts are delicious right from the bag. I also really enjoy them as a topping on oatmeal in the morning or sprinkled on salads at lunch. They have a slightly nutty taste, similar to a sunflower seed or pine nuts and contain more protein and omegas and less carbs than the same serving of Chia or Flax. YUM!

skratch

Do you workout? I mean really work out – as in training for races, etc. If so, then you’ve probably already heard of Skratch. If not, and you’re looking for a rehydration workout drink that doesn’t produce headaches or bloated stomachs, then Skratch is for you. This formula focuses on keeping your body’s sodium levels carefully regulated – helping with what is lost through sweat. I liked the lemon-lime flavor as I mixed it into my workout water bottle. If you look to purchase it online, you’ll find also in orange, raspberry and pineapple flavors (YUM!)

The Good Bean

The Good bean sea salted roasted chickpeas is a perfect, healthy, quick snack for those moments when you don’t want to eat too much, but need to do something about your growling belly. These little crunchies are:

  • Gluten-Free
  • Nut-Free
  • Cholesterol-Free
  • Low in Fat
  • Low in Carbohydrates
  • Non-GMO
  • Fair-Trade
  • High in Fiber

Does it get much healthier than that?

There you have it – the vegan treats I sampled in my Vegan Cuts snack box. There are definitely some items here that I will be looking to purchase full-size versions of.

It is so much fun (and so easy) to be able to sample and learn about new vegan items through these Vegan Cuts sample boxes..

As promised, here’s a glimpse of the Vegan Cuts beauty box I purchased recently:

Have you tried any of these beauty or snack items? If so, I’d love to hear what you think. I’m super excited to try the Dew puff and will keep you posted via Facebook on how I like it.
