Vital Nutrients for True Living: Sun Warrior Review

What does health mean to you? The definition of the word “Health” means :the state of being free from illness or injury. To be honest, making the decision of  living a healthier lifestyle is not easy as it seem. Most of us don’t have the luxury of affording a healthy lifestyle, let alone enjoying the interesting flavors of plant based living. I have asked these same question to myself too, will I be able to afford this new lifestyle, along with finding delicious alternatives. Here is a little story of how I found my answers.  One night, after a long day of trying to make all of my classes, I noticed a difference in my appetite.

In fact, I hardly want to eat anything, if you’ve been following my blog, you will see that my diet has gone from poultry to tofu. *Just a Tip: Depending on your grocery store, tofu is an inexpensive way of transitioning from eating meat. This was my first step to becoming a vegan, but I still needed help with boosting my energy and satisfying my hunger on a daily basis. Thankfully my new friends at Sun Warrior guided me to a plant based lifestyle, without the stress of experimenting by myself. Let me tell you, I have tried so many protein products and instead of satisfying my appetite, I ruined it!  Well enough of my sad story, here is my new plant based road map  thanks to Sun Warrior.

Sol Good Protein Bar:Salted Caramel

The first soldier on the battlefield  is the Sol Good Protein Bar! Honestly, this protein bar taste like a salted caramel candy, while still offering nutritional benefits.  I’ve tried protein bars  in the passed, but the flavors were terrible, the only ingredient that stood out was the protein powder. Those past experiences left a bad taste in mouth, but the Sol Good Protein Bar changed my mind. The chewy caramel texture and grated sea salt made my snack time, dessert time instead. Besides the delicious flavor, this bar also satisfies my hunger and keeps me full for a good hour.

Classic Chocolate Shake- Sample

My nickname for the Classic Chocolate Shake is “Cold Cocoa”. In the video below, I will be talking about my personal chocolatier moment. Moving on, the chocolate shake is my favorite other than the Mocha flavor. The smooth texture almost made me forget that I was even drinking a shake, and the natural sweeteners made this experience effortless.  Here is what I say ” If the shake is hard to enjoy, find another alternative”.  This is my number 1# Recommendation in the Classic Plus Collection.

Classic Vanilla Shake- Sample

We’re almost halfway through the Tour de Classic Plus! So far you’ve got gist of how plant based living can be flavorful, instead of the bland protein powder taste. The Classic Vanilla is the definition of  organic nutrients, because of the rich taste of fresh vanilla bean. Usually if you’ve tried vanilla shakes, there is a visible protein dust or some substance that makes the drinking process a nightmare. Honestly, this has been the story of my life with other vanilla shakes. If your a lover of vanilla, then this is your match. Be sure to watch the video below to hear my commentary about the Classic Vanilla Shake.

Protein Cookies for Everyday Vegans Review: Lenny and Larry’s!

Being healthy is not always simple, especially when we are constantly surrounded by candy bars and cookies. In my passed articles, I have expressed my love for sweets, but recently I made a conscious decision to  finding better ways of enjoying sweet treats without going overboard. Plus, these treats that I’m about to show you are vegan, kosher, and satisfies your hunger. I’m talking about the champion, the complete cookie, dare I say it.. Lenny Larry’s Cookies! These vegan cookies are the biggest cookies that I have ever seen.

Honestly, I thought the taste was going to be horrible, to my surprise within 7 day all of the cookies disappeared. SERIOUSLY! I allowed my siblings to sample the cookies, but that was a bad mistake. I literally had to hide the last two cookies in order to do a review video. I used my siblings taste buds, because we all have different taste preferences and how can you know if something works, if you don’t have a test group. Below is a long list of cookies and a fun Youtube of me!

 

 

Products Featured:

1.Chocolate Chip
2.White Chocolate Macadamia
3.Peanut Butter
4. Oatmeal Raisin
5. Snickerdoodle
6.Lemon Poppy Seed
7. Birthday Cake
8. Double Chocolate
9.Pumpkin Spice

 

 

 

1.Chocolate Chip

First things first, the classic chocolate chip cookie! The chocolate chip I would give it a 7 on my the flavor radar. Normally this is not my favorite flavor, but I love the light texture of the cookie and the actual chocolate chips added a fresh baked taste. This cookie made me fall in love with chocolate chip, but there are still more flavors to go.

 

 

2.White Chocolate Macadamia

The White Chocolate Macadamia was very interesting. I say this because it’s very hard to make macadamia cookie health. The white chocolate chips was amazing, but the actual cookie didn’t have enough flavor. Perhaps, they could have added some more vanilla to really give it that extra kick. Overall, I enjoyed the cookie despite the bland flavor. Then again, you might find this cookie outstanding.  You be the judge!

 

 

3.Peanut Butter

I’m in HEAVEN!!!!! I love this Peanut Butter cookie, the mini peanut bites had a nice crunch. You will see my full thoughts about this cookie in the video, so I really want to keep my mouth shut.

Moving On…

 

4. Oatmeal Raisin

The oatmeal cookie is my breakfast on the go fix. The real oats and raisins makes me feel like, I’m having a nice bowl of oatmeal with hint of dried fruit. P.S. If you don’t like to taste large chucks of oats in your cookies, then this is the match for you. The fresh essence of cinnamon really creates a bakery fresh element. My flavor ranking is a whopping 9!

 

5. Snickerdoodle

The cozy night and a movie type of cookie. The sweet sugar and cinnamon combination gives makes everything feel like Christmas all over again. The exterior of the cookie is covered with sugar and cinnamon, while the  interior is soft. If your a college student feeling home sick, I would definitely recommend this warm treat. P.S. Try this with vanilla ice cream, it’s the bomb!!!!!

 

6.Lemon Poppy Seed

This cookie is like having spring right in your mouth. The Lemon Poppy Seed cookie is very refreshing and the poppy seeds are small so you can hardly taste. I find that the lemon essence is not offensive and the combination of the seeds didn’t overwhelm each other. This is the flagship for spring desserts on my book. Flavor ranking is 10!

 

 

7. Birthday Cake

The Celebration has just begun! I received two of these cookies and let’s just say both of them was eaten in one day. Ok, I’m not greedy! My older brother ate one and the second one came to me. Moving on, the birthday cake cookie really felt like I was eating cake. Honestly Lenny Larry’s  mastered this flavor and I am so in love. The texture is soft and the sprinkles is like the cherry on the ice cream. By the way, crumbling this on top on ice cream is magical.

 

 

8. Double Chocolate

 

The Double Chocolate is so much better than the chocolate chip cookie  in my opinion.  The actual cookie is DELICIOUS! The texture is moist, the crust has a crunch and the chocolate chips melts in your mouth instantly. This is my sister’s 1# pick out of all the cookies. She loving chocolate chip instead of dark chocolate, so this was a shocker to me that she ate the whole cookie. You wouldn’t be disappointed!
9.Pumpkin Spice

The final cookie! The Pumpkin Spice is like having autumn in the spring time literally! I love the pumpkin essence and the soft texture when I took my first bite. To be honest, these cookies don’t taste like protein cookies at all! I have tried protein treats in the passed and I noticed the artificial ingredients in each bite. Thankfully, Lenny Larry’s makes being healthy delicious and combining some of our favorite flavors together with protein components is a bonus.

 

 

Here is my video review and my thoughts about the Peanut Butter Cookie:
