Happy Friday. So glad you enjoyed the Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger post and the at-home sushi post. Tonight I unpacked my giveaway goodies from IHerb – I feel so lucky! I entered this giveaway over at Gluten Free Easily at the total eleventh hour and won. I so rarely win giveaways, and never when I enter like an hour before the deadline. So yay. I had ordered from IHerb before this giveaway and had been super impressed with the fast shipping, good prices and great product selection. For my giveaway goodies, I picked combination of staples, products I had been wanting to try, and a couple of splurges.
Navitas Pomegranate Power – this was a total splurge. I would not have bought this for myself so it was exciting to add it to my order. I plan to use it in smoothies and to make the Fudgie Pomegranate Power from Dairy Free and Fit
Navitas Palm Sugar – it is a bit of a mystery whether this is coconut sugar or palm sugar based on the description. I have the Coconut Secret Coconut Crystals (which is definitely coconut sugar) so I am excited to see how the Navitas Palm Sugar compares. Whether it is palm or coconut sugar does not matter – both are low-glycemic (more information here). This will be so nice to have on hand when agave has too prominent a flavor to substitute for sugar in a recipe.
Navitas Mesquite Power – I also plan to use this as an alternative sweetener.
Nutiva Organic Shelled Hemp Seed – I have never cooked with hemp seeds before and wanted to try making both Gena’s Lucky Hemp Bread and Averie’s Cheezy Hemp Dip.
Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Rolled Oats – A total staple for me. I use oats in vegan overnight oats or ground up into flour in recipes (like my Salty Almond Chocolate Oatmeal Bars)
