Is Quorn Good? (Product review!)

Quorn veggie food products are meal staples for lots of vegetarians. They now also have no-egg foods available so vegans can also get in on the action πŸ™‚

There are over ten tasty products available by Quorn. I’m going to go over these four today and then update this post as I try the rest!

Quorn is definitely plant based as the key protein source used here is called Mycoprotein – a single-cell organism sort of like fungi. There are articles that suggest it’s a type of mold. One of the things that make this type of protein unique is the texture. The way the proteins grow make for a tender mouth-feel, as opposed to soy which had spun proteins that produce a distinct ‘chew’.

According to the food package, some people have adverse allergy-type reactions when they consume Mycoprotein.

In my house, we’re not allergic and we enjoy these products as a cool alternative to soy-based veggie burgers etc.

Being less familiar with their vegan foods, I couldn’t wait to try these spicy chik’n patties.

Upon tasting I found out that they are not very spicy. They also are a little dry, I needed extra ketchup. And they’re small in diameter as well.

Would I buy again? Sure, if I needed a chik’n product this were the only one available πŸ™‚

Next, these grounds:

This is good for all types of things! We like tacos around here and this is what we commonly use for the “meat”.

Grounds are also tasty for hamburger helper type of meals as well as pasta and chili 🌢️ That reminds me, I make a great Chipotle chili! I should do that again soon hmmmm…

Now, what about these?

I recently tasted a stir-fry made with these and it was wonderful. The application for these are pretty universal, honestly. They’re great in pot pies and casseroles. Good for those times when meat eaters and vegans share a meal together.

Asian spices go really well too. Hellooo sweet chili oil!

Last up:

Yup, my plant-based son Legendary loves these. It’s nice to be able to give him a popular food that is not made with the popular crappy ingredients.

Good to go! I will update this post as need-be πŸ™‚

Update: new packaging spotted!

Trying Graze Snacks

My son and I had the pleasure to try these snacks!

Snacks are always a good idea to have near. That’s extra true when you really try to eat healthy.

I first heard about Graze snacks as a subscription box service a couple of years ago (I think!).

However, I don’t have a subscription. I saw some of these snacks on sale at CVS Pharmacy. I bought one sweet flavor and one savory.

Today, my son, Legend, and I tried them!

First, we had the sweet:

These oat squares had the texture of a chewy granola bar. The cacao flavor really came through strongly! As well as the cranberry and vanilla.

I loved it! Legend didn’t enjoy it as much. I think that he likes his treats sweeter. Because these were not very sweet, which is one thing I really loved about it.

I think we saved the best for last – a crunchy snack mix:

Legend and I both wanted more of these! It was so good, pleasantly crunchy and crisp. Although, not very spicy, I would have enjoyed a little more peppery kick. However, the makers know what they’re doing, flavor-wise. I could eat a 2 pound bag of this mix! πŸ™‚

Over all, yes these are good and highly recommended.

Shea Butter Review [video]

Never has there been a shea butter as buttery as this one. At least, not in my experience. However it’s that experience that allows me to truly appreciate what Fragrance and Beyond has provided to the welcome market.

Other shea butters carry the name but in appearance they can be hard, drier, and possibly crumbly. Unprocessed white shea butter will fit that description and that is not what we have here.

What we have here is shea butter that is finally able to be compared to actual butter. Not the butter straight out of the fridge; this is the soft butter that can be found in a traditional butter bell. It spreads and melts perfectly on bread.

This kind of shea butter spreads gracefully onto your skin. Smoothness. The natural scents only add to the experience of the senses.

The two shea butters I received were in two flavors: morenga and cacao. They’re both luxurious and carry health benefits in addition to the already nutrient-dense raw shea butter.

It comes as no surprise that such quality products come from a company with a valuable message.

We are all beautiful and Go Fragrance and Beyond promotes equal beauty for all. True beauty is found on the inside of who you are.

Officially speaking, it is safe to say that Go Fragrance and Beyond shea butter (and body scrub) is an Easy Light Source.

Not only is it an easy way to take care of your appearance; Using these products promoted warm feelings of love and self-care within me as I indulged in them.

Recommended for everyone πŸ™‚
