Bitchin’ Sauce and Bars

Review of Bitchin' Sauce and Bars @anotherhungryvegan.comSince I was only able to go to Expo West for two out of the three days, there were inevitably some companies that I missed out on. One of them was Bitchin’ Sauce, which I had heard about online long before Expo began. Thankfully, I was able to contact the company and they were super awesome to send me some samples of their sauces and bars. This is a review of their products as well as some meal ideas if you’re not sure what to do with their sauces. Hint: they go well with just about everything! Continue reading

Review of Bitchin' Sauce and Bars @anotherhungryvegan.com
I ended up trying the Original bars first (they also have a Strawberry flavor) as a quick on-the-go breakfast with lots of water. The bars remind me of larabars, but these are a lot more filling and pleasant to eat. They have a smooth yet chewy consistency and are made with Organic Dates, Organic Coconut, Almonds, Pecans, Organic Pepitas, Organic Flax Meal, Sea Salt.

Some of the sauces I was the most excited about trying initially were their Cilantro Lime, Original, and Bombay. What I love about their products is how clean the ingredients are, along with being non-GMO, gluten-free and vegan. For instance, the Original Bitchin’ Sauce contains Water, Almonds, Grapeseed Oil, Lemon Juice, Nutritional Yeast, Bragg Liquid Aminos, Garlic, Spices, Sea Salt. That’s it! Because of these ingredients, you can either heat the sauce, use it as a dressing, or dip raw veggies into it. One tub goes quite a long way! 

Review of Bitchin' Sauce and Bars @anotherhungryvegan.com
One of my favorite meals to make at home are burrito bowls. For these all you need is a base of lettuce, plus a protein, rice and lots of veggies. The Cilantro Lime sauce was just perfect for this occasion, adding a wonderful creamy addition to flavor the vegetables and tortilla I had with the meal. I used Sweet Earth’s Chipotle Style Seitan, and I’ve found that their products are a quick, easy and delicious option to pair with the sauces. I threw the sauce on at the end, but you could also marinate your veggies or cook your rice in it. Either of those ways is sure to pack a ton of flavor in the final meal.

Review of Bitchin' Sauce and Bars @anotherhungryvegan.comSpeaking of Sweet Earth, I’m also in love with their Curry Recipe Seitan. Just as I expected, it went perfectly with the Bombay Bitchin’ Sauce. This easy meal was cauliflower “rice”, underneath some spinach, chickpeas and seitan cooked in the sauce. This was nicely warming and comforting with the curry, spices and garlic flavors. Not to mention filling!

Review of Bitchin' Sauce and Bars @anotherhungryvegan.com
Who wants some Bitchin’ tacos? These were just screaming for some spiced Chipotle flavor. I assembled these tacos with some Sweet Earth BBQ Savory Grounds, veggies, avocado and a coleslaw marinated in the Chipotle sauce. The slaw made all the difference in my opinion, giving a smoky flavor to some veggies that would otherwise be pretty bland. You could also make these and top the tacos with the sauce at the end, but I found that it made an excellent marinade for the veggies.

Review of Bitchin' Sauce and Bars @anotherhungryvegan.com
I discovered Gardein’s new Fishless Fillet at Expo and I was blown away! I decided to make a fish n’ chips style meal with homemade oven-baked fries. Since tartar sauce isn’t vegan (and I didn’t have a vegan alternative on hand), I decided to pair these delightful fillets with the Original Bitchin’ Sauce. Since the sauce has a savory flavor with a hint of lemon juice, I figured that it would  make a great substitution for tartar sauce…and you know what, it was even better! I could see this flavor also making a great dip for some carrots, cucumbers or celery as an easy snack or appetizer option at your next get-together. No one would know that it’s dairy-free!

Review of Bitchin' Sauce and Bars @anotherhungryvegan.com
Last, but not least I’ve been craving a BLT. We had some great Veganic bread from One Degree Organics, some Sweet Earth Benevolent vegan Bacon and the Heat sauce that I saved for last. Instead of using mayo, I just spread the Heat Sauce on the toasted bread and it was delicious! Next time I would probably add a little avocado to cool down the spiciness, but luckily it wasn’t too spicy for me.

A big thanks to Bitchin’ Sauce and Sweet Earth for the products featured in this review! Now, after hearing my thoughts are you more excited to try Bitchin’ Sauce for yourself? Check out their store locator to find out where you can pick up your own sauce. Let me know what flavor you’re the most excited to try and what kind of food you would enjoy it with!

Vanilla Lucuma Buckwheat Shake

A high-protein, gluten-free, lower-in-fat Vanilla Lucuma Buckwheat Shake @anotherhungryvegan.comRemember when I promised another Sprout Living recipe in my previous post? Well, you’re looking at it! After trying the Original, Chocolate Maca, and Green Kingdom EPIC Protein flavors I was just dying to use the Vanilla Lucuma in a recipe. This shake/smoothie is nut-free, gluten-free, soy-free and low in fat but still high in protein and fiber. I only recently started using buckwheat in smoothies, and I was amazed at how it makes them so creamy and filling. The frozen pear, vanilla, and spices all compliment the Vanilla Lucuma protein quite nicely. Keep reading on for the recipe! Continue reading

A high-protein, gluten-free, lower-in-fat Vanilla Lucuma Buckwheat Shake @anotherhungryvegan.comA high-protein, gluten-free, lower-in-fat Vanilla Lucuma Buckwheat Shake @anotherhungryvegan.comAs I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m a big fan of Sprout Living, and their newly reformulated EPIC Protein is pretty impressive! Not too long ago they sent me some samples including a cool shaker bottle and a full-size of their Green Kingdom (which I’m a big fan of as well). I think my favorite will always be the Chocolate Maca with the Vanilla Lucuma as a close second. In case you’re not familiar with lucuma or maca, both are considered “superfoods” for their nutritional benefits. However, what I really love about them is the unique flavor that they add to any smoothie. Throwing them into your favorite recipe really kicks things up a notch. These protein powders from Sprout Living are perfectly balanced with ingredients so that you get the superfoods with delicious flavors that are ready to be used.

Don’t forget, if you’re wanting to try Sprout Living for yourself…they have Epic Protein Venture Packs available for sale on their website so you can figure out what flavor(s) you love before buying full-sized tubs of each. Now, let me know in the comments below…what kind of recipe would YOU use the Vanilla Lucuma protein in?

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Shake

A super delicious and healthy vegan Raspberry Chocolate Chip Shake @anotherhungryvegan.comI’ve had a few Sprout Living smoothie recipes on my mind lately, and I couldn’t wait any longer to share them with you! If this is the first time you’re hearing about Sprout Living, well basically they make a line of super nutritious, raw, gluten-free and vegan protein powders. One of my favorite flavors of all time has been their EPIC Protein: Chocolate Maca. Sprout Living recently reformulated their line, and I was eagerly waiting in anticipation to try it out! The first recipe I made with their reformulated Chocolate Maca is for this Raspberry Chocolate Chip Shake, which isn’t your standard protein shake. This one is filled with protein and healthy fats, without any artificial sweeteners or color additives. Believe it or not, the color is from raspberries and the sweetener comes from bananas and dates. Read on for the recipe, and to learn more about one of my favorite products from Sprout Living! Continue reading

A super delicious and healthy vegan Raspberry Chocolate Chip Shake @anotherhungryvegan.comA super delicious and healthy vegan Raspberry Chocolate Chip Shake @anotherhungryvegan.comAs I mentioned before…the new protein line from Sprout Living is even better than the first formulation I tried! A big thanks to the company for sending over samples, and for inviting me to be one of the Healthy Vegan Chefs on their website! If you’re looking for more of my recipe experiments using their products, I actually have quite a few on this blog that you are more than welcome to check out. I’ve made smoothies before with just almond milk, a banana and the protein (and maybe a date or two) and even the simplest combinations have turned out phenomenal.

A super delicious and healthy vegan Raspberry Chocolate Chip Shake @anotherhungryvegan.com
So what are you waiting for? Go get yourself some Sprout Living Chocolate Maca Protein ASAP. If you’re hesitant to get a full-size flavor, luckily they also come in these Epic Protein Venture Packs so you can figure out what flavor(s) you love before buying full-sized tubs of each. I know I can be indecisive at times so it’s really awesome to be able to try each flavor before committing to a full-size. Plus, these are in pouches so you can take them anywhere with you whether it’s to the gym or traveling.

Have you tried anything from Sprout Living? How do you like to enjoy their powders? Or, if you’re wanting to try them…what kinds of recipes would you come up with?

World Peas Fava Crisps

Review of Fava Crisps from World Peas, a delicious gluten-free and non-gmo snack. Instead of settling for potato chips, give these healthy crisps a try! @anotherhungryvegan.com
Come on, give peas a chance! Or fava beans for that matter. I recently found out about World Peas and they were incredibly kind to send me some of their brand new Fava Crisps to try out. These come in three flavors: Barbeque, Vinegar and Sea Salt, and Ranch to satisfy all your savory, salty and crunchy cravings. Find out what I thought of these different snacks in terms of flavor, texture and similar pre-vegan day snacks that they remind me of. Also, learn why these are a much better alternative to the standard snacks you’ll find in the store. It isn’t likely that you’ll eat an entire bag in one sitting, but if you do at least you’ll be getting tons of protein but less fat and calories than if you had devoured a bag of your typical potato chips. Continue reading

Review of Fava Crisps from World Peas, a delicious gluten-free and non-gmo snack. Instead of settling for potato chips, give these healthy crisps a try! @anotherhungryvegan.comFirst, I really wanted to try the Brighton Vinegar & Sea Salt Fava Crisps. These are inspired by “the chippies found in Southeast England”, and I can honestly tell you the salt and vinegar flavors are very pronounced. However, the overall taste is nicely balanced. These taste a lot like salt and vinegar seasoned roasted peanuts in terms of crunch, flavor and texture. Since these are made out of fava beans, they have 6g of protein per serving, 4.5g of fat and 13g of total carbs which are a heck of a lot better than potato chips. Plus, unlike regular chips, you aren’t as likely to get through a whole bag of these and still be hungry.

Review of Fava Crisps from World Peas, a delicious gluten-free and non-gmo snack. Instead of settling for potato chips, give these healthy crisps a try! @anotherhungryvegan.comThe Santa Barbara Ranch Fava Crisps were my absolute favorite! When I was younger, I used to love those Flavor-Blasted Goldfish snacks and honestly I shudder at the thought of what was even IN those! And you know what? These crisps taste practically identical to those, yet these have much fewer ingredients and are much more nutritionally sound. Unlike Goldfish crackers, these happen to be gluten-free, vegan and non-gmo. If you can tell from the photo, these crisps are coated with a mixture that includes corn starch, so they are a little more cracker-like as opposed to being nut-like which was how the Ranch crisps were. The flavor of these was inspired by cool, tangy ranch dip and I do get a hint of that savory flavor in the crisps. I wouldn’t say it’s an exact take on Ranch dressing, in my opinion…it’s even better!

Review of Fava Crisps from World Peas, a delicious gluten-free and non-gmo snack. Instead of settling for potato chips, give these healthy crisps a try! @anotherhungryvegan.comIf the Ranch Crisps taste like Goldfish crackers, then the Texas Barbecue Fava Crisps taste like Fritos! More specifically, the Honey Barbecue Flavor Twist Fritos that are definitely not vegan or gluten-free. Not to mention, the flavored Fritos have ingredients like MSG, artificial colors and flavors, and way too many other ingredients to keep track of. The BBQ flavor in these crisps isn’t quite like a bbq flavor you would expect in potato chips, but I don’t typically like barbecue chips anyway so I really enjoyed these!

Review of Fava Crisps from World Peas, a delicious gluten-free and non-gmo snack. Instead of settling for potato chips, give these healthy crisps a try! @anotherhungryvegan.comSo which of the Fava Crisps are you wanting to try first? World Peas also makes…you guessed it, a ton of flavored peas (Wasabi anyone?) so there’s a flavor for basically everyone to love. If you’re looking for a healthier snack than traditional potato chips or non-vegan crackers then these are an excellent choice. I have a feeling these will even fool your omnivore friends in a blind taste-test. Check out the World Peas Online Store to pick up your own World Peas snacks to try for yourself!

Blueberry Pecan Cinnamon Roll Shake

A sweet superfood Blueberry Pecan Cinnamon Roll Shake with plenty of protein and healthy ingredients. Did I mention it's raw, gluten-free and vegan too? @anotherhungryvegan.comFor the past few months, I’ve been really anxious to try Sprout Living‘s new, reformulated EPIC Protein line. I jumped for joy when I received samples in the mail to try the updated flavors, many of which were completely new to me. I went for the “Original” flavor and decided to come up with a chocolate-free, gluten-free and raw shake. If that doesn’t sound like music to your ears, then just wait when you find out this has the perfect balance of rich, nutty pecans, fresh blueberries and warming cinnamon to start your day out right. Did you know that blueberries and cinnamon are considered to be superfoods? Throw them into your next smoothie along with some of Sprout Living’s EPIC Protein and you’re on your way to delicious health in no time! Continue reading

A sweet superfood Blueberry Pecan Cinnamon Roll Shake with plenty of protein and healthy ingredients. Did I mention it's raw, gluten-free and vegan too? @anotherhungryvegan.comSprout Living's new EPIC Protein LineAs I mentioned, Sprout Living has redone their EPIC Protein line. They’ve even come up with a new Simple Signatures variety and other products that you can browse on their online store. As for the EPIC variety, they have these three flavors plus a Green Kingdom flavor (which I used to make these delicious superfood pancakes if you’re interested). I’m really eager to try these other flavors in some recipes too. Their previous Chocolate Maca protein was good, but word has it that this new one is even better. Plus I finally get to try the Vanilla Lucuma! The original has a subtle and natural flavor and like Sprout Living’s other products, it’s 100% plant-based, organic, non-gmo, gluten free and made with hypoallergenic ingredients. 

A sweet superfood Blueberry Pecan Cinnamon Roll Shake with plenty of protein and healthy ingredients. Did I mention it's raw, gluten-free and vegan too? @anotherhungryvegan.comAside from having superfoods, this smoothie has up to 30g of protein! It has plenty of potassium from the dates and banana, and the maca powder in here helps to regulate hormones. All that and it tastes like a blueberry pecan cinnamon roll! Enjoy this after your next morning workout, or make the recipe and split it with someone. Whenever you choose to make this, it will taste wonderful and keep you feeling great!

PSB&J Shake

A sweet, allergy-friendly shake that tastes just like a PB&J sandwich in smoothie form! @anotherhungryvegan.com I know you’ve heard of a PB&J, so you’re probably thinking “ok, what does the S stand for?” Well, this happens to be a nut-free sunbutter and jelly shake with probiotics (hence the P). Not too long ago, Sunbiotics sent me some of their probiotic snacks, chocolate and powder to try out and I knew I just had to share a recipe with you all. This shake is also made with Dastony’s Sunflower Seed Butter as an alternative to non-dairy milk. Thanks to protein powder, it is also energy-rich and sure to help keep you or your family feeling full. It tastes just like a kid-friendly PB&J sandwich, but without the gluten or nuts!  Continue reading

A sweet, allergy-friendly shake that tastes just like a PB&J sandwich in smoothie form! @anotherhungryvegan.com
I don’t know if you’ve ever thrown sunflower seed butter into a smoothie, but it’s quite an experience! You can always use peanut butter or almond butter, but I wanted to come up with a nut-free shake so that people with allergies can still enjoy it. In fact, you can get really creative with the ingredients and use any nut or seed butter that you like. I’m tempted to try this in the future with some hemp seeds or macadamia nuts in place of the sunflower seed butter.

A sweet, allergy-friendly shake that tastes just like a PB&J sandwich in smoothie form! @anotherhungryvegan.comAs mentioned before, these are the stars of this smoothie. Thankfully Windy City Organics gave me the opportunity to try a few of the products from their different brands which I’ve been really pleased with. The Sunbiotics Vanilla powder is great because you literally only have to add 1/3 a teaspoon to get the benefit of the probiotics. How easy is that? I’ve also been enjoying the fantastic products from Growing Naturals including this Vanilla Blast Brown Rice protein. I love using these ingredients together in a smoothie like this because they are made with raw ingredients, yet they happen to be very allergy-friendly but packed with good nutrients (not to mention protein). Smoothies are a great way to incorporate these kinds of foods into your diet! 

A sweet, allergy-friendly shake that tastes just like a PB&J sandwich in smoothie form! @anotherhungryvegan.comThis shake was made with fresh strawberries, however if you use frozen ones it’ll be a lot thicker. Personally I like to work with what I have, and this was still perfectly fine in terms of taste, and it’s much easier to drink without a straw. To me, it’s really important not to add too much ice to the smoothie because it really waters down the taste. Adding frozen fruit (especially bananas) can really help to solve that issue. Anyway, I hope you liked this recipe and take a look at my review of the other products made by Sunbiotics while you’re at it!

Sunbiotics – Organic Probiotics

Review of Sunbiotics - Organic Probiotics @anotherhungryvegan.comHow often do you REALLY think about your digestion? It turns out that a lot of Americans are having more than tummy troubles because of antibiotics that kill good bacteria and lack of important nutrients in their diets. I mentioned earlier this year that I’ve been looking to add more fermented foods into my diet, and I have definitely noticed an improvement in how I feel. Why fermented foods especially? Because they have great probiotic benefits to help return any digestive system back to normal. And, you guessed it, that’s where this review of Sunbiotics comes in! Sunbiotics is one of the Windy City Organics brands that I was given the opportunity to try and review. See what I thought of their line of Probiotic Almonds, powder and more! Continue reading

Review of Sunbiotics - Organic Probiotics @anotherhungryvegan.comFirst off, the almonds! It’s awesome to have this “healthy gourmet snack with the extra benefits of probiotics”, as Sunbiotics states on their website. The best part of these almonds is that they are made with sprouted, raw and organic almonds which means that they will already digest better than standard almonds. In addition, these have been enhanced with a vegan probiotic blend, with up to 8 billion CFU per package!

Review of Sunbiotics - Organic Probiotics @anotherhungryvegan.comThe Chocolate almonds are lightly coated in cocoa powder. They’re not quite chocolate-covered, however they do have a nice richness when you combine the taste of the almond with the chocolate powder. The ingredients in this pouch are: organic sprouted raw almonds, organic raw cacao powder, organic coconut sugar, probiotic blend of L. acidophilus, B. bifidum, B. lactis, B. longum I threw these almonds into a smoothie to make a cocoa-dusted almond milk base and it was incredible! You can expect to see the super sweet recipe sometime in the next few days over on my social media channels (see the links on the sidebar).

Review of Sunbiotics - Organic Probiotics @anotherhungryvegan.comThe Cheesy Almonds are made with a dusting of nooch and sea salt. These are lightly salty but nice and crunchy at the same time. I remember buying these a while back and they were one of my favorite flavors of all the Sunbiotics (and I think they still are). If you like nooch, I think you will enjoy these savory almonds. You could definitely crush some of these and throw them into some salad or pasta! Or possibly making a noochy sauce with the almonds thrown in!

Review of Sunbiotics - Organic Probiotics @anotherhungryvegan.comThe Truffle Almonds are a close second as my favorite of all the Sunbiotics. Like the name suggests, these are made with a truffle sea salt. They don’t have the cheesiness of the nutritional yeast-coated almonds but the salt adds an excellent savory factor. If you’re usually buying and eating salted, roasted almonds then this is a fantastic healthy alternative to try instead. Plus, you get the probiotic benefit that you won’t find in any standard nuts.

Review of Sunbiotics - Organic Probiotics @anotherhungryvegan.comIf you’re hesitant to try the flavored almonds at all, I would seriously recommend going with the Original Almonds first. These are simply raw sprouted almonds enhanced with probiotics, but similar to the other almonds, they don’t taste different because of the probiotic blend. You could easily throw these into your oatmeal or make some trail mix and share it with your friends and family. No one needs to know that these almonds are great for healthy digestion!

Review of Sunbiotics - Organic Probiotics @anotherhungryvegan.comSunbiotics also makes a powder so that it’s easier than ever to include probiotics in your daily routine. The Vanilla-flavored powder is made with organic superfoods including vanilla, mesquite, and yacon root, which each add a prebiotic benefit as well. The best part? You only have to add a third of a teaspoon. That’s right, one of these little jars has 45 servings per container that you can mix into your regular meals. These also come in different flavors for kids and in a tablet form if that’s more up your alley. I’ll be posting a fun recipe tomorrow using this Probiotic Powder, but you can really throw it into just about anything!

IMG_7698And…I know you were thinking it already. Yes, Probiotic Chocolate Hearts! Kind of appropriate for February/Valentine’s Day, no? The difference between these chocolates and your standard chocolate pieces is that you treat them more like a vitamin. One jar has about 30 servings, which is roughly a one-month supply if you want to have one every day. Just like with the almonds, these hearts taste like dark chocolate and nothing else. If only all vitamins were this delicious, then you would never forget to take them! Now in the comments, I want to know if you’ve tried any of these products from Sunbiotics or what your favorite ways to incorporate probiotics into your diet are! Check out Sunbiotics if you’re looking to purchase online and try some of these for yourself!

Vanilla Matcha Pumpkin Seed Shake

Vanilla Matcha Pumpkin Seed Shake @anotherhungryvegan.comThis is the last of my Dastony review posts (for this week anyway)! Since it’s Friday, what better way to power through your day than with some matcha and pumpkin seeds? Interestingly enough, I did some searching online and I found out that pumpkin seeds have some benefits that I didn’t even know about! Did you know that they are the only seed that is alkaline-forming in the body? Or that they contain the minerals phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, iron and copper? Of course these seeds are also a great source of heart-healthy fats and protein. All the better reason to eat them. With this vanilla and matcha smoothie recipe, it’s easier than ever to get in your dose of pumpkin seeds! Continue reading

Vanilla Matcha Pumpkin Seed Shake @anotherhungryvegan.com
I love the fact that Dastony makes a sprouted and all-organic pumpkin seed butter. I literally have never been able to find another one in any of the stores I shop at (and certainly not one made with organic ingredients)! Can you guess what’s in this jar? Just organic, raw and sprouted pumpkin seeds! No sugar or salt added and definitely no preservatives. Like the other nut and seed butters, no refrigeration is required and you don’t have to keep stirring the seed butter to avoid clumping. It has a rich, almost cheesy flavor that I know would make an excellent pesto or other sauce. I went for the smoothie option (typical, I know), but I will definitely be experimenting with some other recipes!

Vanilla Matcha Pumpkin Seed Shake @anotherhungryvegan.comSimilar to my other recipes, this one also features Growing Naturals Vanilla Blast protein. It adds a smooth and sweet taste, and you would never know that it adds 24g of protein per scoop! I also included a teaspoon of Kiss Me Organics Matcha Powder which helps give you a boost along with a little maca powder thrown in the mix. A huge thanks to Windy City Organics for sending these awesome jars of nut-free seed butters for me to try! As mentioned before, if you’re interested in purchasing Dastony, you can do so on the Dastony website. Which nut or seed butter are you wanting to try first? What kind of recipe are you thinking of using it in?
