I recently treated myself to an Amazon order of superfoods. (I just learned today that, in the UK, it is illegal to label foods as "superfoods" because it encourages artificially high prices at the market. But in the US, I guess we'll superfood all day long.) Some of these supplements, like the cacao nibs and maca powder, I try to keep on hand. Others, like the dried dragon fruit and mesquite powder, were first-time purchases.
I've ordered from Navitas Naturals before, but Terrasoul was new to me. I was impressed by their prices.
I stirred maca and mesquite into my breakfast oats, and topped them with cacao nibs and bee pollen (I know there's a debate over whether pollen is considered vegan, so I apologize in advance for this questionable ingredient. For what it's worth, I consider it more of an allergy medicine than a food.) Terrasoul's cacao nibs are quite bitter and have an almost sulfuric aftertaste. I have only bought them from Navitas in the past and I believe they coat theirs in a sweetener, so that's what I was expecting. I guess the Terrasoul nibs have a more authentic cacao flavor, but wow, it will take some getting used to!
Super basic dinner tonight -- spaghetti with Costco marinara, giant green olives, and faux parmesan (ground almonds + nutritional yeast.)
Olivia is working on her letters. She recognizes about half of them at this point.
Hope you are having a great week!
