Hey everyone! Hope your Tuesday is off to a great start. I just got back from spending the night/morning with a wonderful friend of mine who is in the hospital. While she is still in a lot of pain, i did my best to keep her entertained and drugged ;)
Since she was released this morning she is on a strict soft foods/liquidish diet.. which got me to thinking about how boring soup broth, pudding and apple sauce can be. Luckily some of the samples i have received fit the bill perfectly. So here are some alternate suggestions for those who cant chew, digest, or stomach solid foods.
Stonyfield is a great company that has organic greek yogurts, smoothies, frozen yogurts, baby and kid products, and even soy yogurts! They sent me some coupons to try their products and i have to say i really loved the soy yogurts. My taste testers said they were a huge fan of the regular yogurts and smoothies!
Chobani really spoiled me when they sent me some samples.
Getting to the actual yogurt was like trying to get the very last bit of peanut butter out of the jar. You keep reaching and reaching and when you think your fingers hit the bottom… you still have further to go! But oh so exciting when you get there!
My ‘taste team’ was a huge fan of how many flavors and varieties there were here. They were a bit skeptical of the whole Greek yogurt thing but loved the thickness of it and thought they tasted wonderful.
If your in the mood for something less sweet/dessert like Kettle Cuisine has a huge line of all natural, gluten free, frozen soups. Some are vegan, some are vegetarian. All taste amazing and are super easy to heat and eat.
I was only able to try the Tomato Soup with Garden Vegetable, but im a huge fan of this company and would buy this and the other vegan option anytime. My family loved the chicken and steak kinds and would never have guessed that they were all natural, low fat, high fiber and gluten or dairy free. This is a great product that everyone in your family can enjoy!
Not up for chewing? No problem! The folks over at Drink Chia sent me two of their drinks to try. At first i was a little skeptical seeing the little dots float around in the bottle, but once cold and shaken up, their actually really good! And you cant beat the nutritional benefits that come with them. 880mg of Omega-3’s, 4g of sugar, sodium, gluten, and cholesterol free, and only 40 calories! WIN!
And last but not least:
One of my favorite drinks ever Skinny Water! sent me one of each flavor to
try review for you all. Im in love with every flavor. Their like vitamin water, but better tasting and no crap. They have tons of vitamins and minerals, key metabolizers, electrolytes and super fruits. Needless to say i was quite excited to see this on my door step.
