Miss Jones makes bakin’ good

Straight out of San Fran, California Miss Jones Baking Co. brings us organic non-GMO plant based ingredients to make products that taste freakin’ AMAZING. That’s right with a capital A. I tried the brownie mix and I had to stop myself from devouring the entire brownie batter. It was no joke the softest, most scrumptious brownie I’ve ever had. I added some chopped walnuts to add to the crunch factor. The best part is Miss Jones even sent me a spatula to make my mixing even easier and my very own recipes. I’m now one authentic “Baker Babe.”

Scoop out about a teaspoon worth of cookie dough, place on a greased tray, and bake for about 10 minutes. If you want to eat it raw, go for it, you can’t get salmonella (since it’s dairy-free) or even scoop it on top of your So Delicious ice cream.

Each of the almond butters are Non-GMO, organic, and use fair trade ingredients that come in recyclable packaging. It’s good for you and the environment.

Caffeine Addicts Go Coco!

Caffeine addicts go coconuts with Coconut Cloud’s¬†¬†dairy-free, carrageenan and titanium dioxide free coffee creamer. But, wait ¬†what is carrageenan? It’s a chemical and a gelatin replacer for most vegan and vegetarian foods. Shockingly, carrageenan is found in most organic and non-dairy food products. Yikes, it hinders digestion and can even¬†contribute to diabetes. Make sure to check your labels. Christa Alexis top pick of the week is…

coconut cloud creamer
