Get me more edamame pasta, plz!

Who knew that edamame can be made into pasta and actually taste good? Seapoint Farms makes Variety Bundle: Seapoint Farms Edamame, Spaghetti and Fettuccine, 15 oz total, which is loaded with 24 grams of plant based protein per serving. It’s perfect for vegans and vegetarians that want to still feel sufficed by their carb intake. All you have to do is boil 6-8 cups of water, add some salt, and mix until tender.

I’m such a foodie as you can tell. The spaghetti kept me full for hours, pleasantly surprising for me, and it had the same texture as a whole wheat pasta. You can tell you’re eating healthier immediately with a grainy thicker texture. I kept it simple and added marina sauce for flavor. High in protein and low in carbs, plus you can jazz it up by adding diced tomatoes, broccoli rabe, spinach, seasonings, or any other veggies. Go green, stay lean, and eat edamame. Yes PLZ!

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.”
