Review: Best Plant-Based Jerky Ever from Urban Cowboy Foods

Hey Friends!

I always love to try the newest vegan snacks out there and am excited to share the Best Plant-Based Jerky Ever (that’s the actual name!) from Urban Cowboy Foods!

When considering shifting to a plant-based diet, people often think they will miss out on the foods they love the most. Luckily for us, just about anything and everything can be made from plants, including jerky!

Urban Cowboy developed a delicious plant-based jerky and I got to try the Black Pepper flavor. I must say I’m impressed!

Urban Cowboy Best Plant Based Jerky Ever

I’ve had plant-based jerky in the past, and the biggest challenge is nailing the texture. Urban Cowboy did it. Their jerky is chewy but not too tough and absolutely bursting with flavor. It’s made with mushrooms, gluten-free soy sauce, natural smoke flavor, and spices to deliver an authentic jerky flavor that is on point. It even has 13 grams of protein, making it a satisfying and good-for-you snack!

If you’re vegan or just looking for a low calorie, plant-based snack that goes big in the flavor department, give the Best Plant-Based Jerky Ever a try!

Daily Crunch Snacks: Healthy, Delicious & Vegan

Helloooo again!

It’s been a minute since I reviewed any new snacks and I’m thrilled to share my new favorite with you!

Daily Crunch Snacks offers super healthy, insanely tasty snacks that are non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, and keto. They even won Good House Keeping’s Best Healthy Snack Award!

If you’re anything like me, you try to eat as healthy as possible, but aren’t into bland, boring snacks (celery sticks? No, thanks!) Well, I got to try out three flavors of Daily Crunch Sprouted Almonds and I’m a huge fan!

If you didn’t know, almonds contain healthy fats, protein, fiber, magnesium, and vitamin E. They are a nutritious snack, but raw or roasted almonds kind of lack in the flavor department and generally aren’t very exciting.

So, what are sprouted almonds? Sprouted almonds are soaked in water and allowed to germinate. They are then dried at low temperatures. This process not only enhances the nutritional value and makes them easier to digest, but it also makes them really crunchy!

Daily Crunch Sprouted Almonds

The Daily Crunch Sprouted Almonds Just.Almonds. are the epitome of what sprouted almonds should be! This snack is crunchy, satisfying, and let’s the delicious, natural flavor of almonds steal the show!

Daily Crunch Coffee-Soaked Sprouted Almonds

Calling all coffee-fiends! This is the snack of your dreams! The Daily Crunch Coffee-Soaked Sprouted Almonds offer the same addicting crunch with the flavor of freshly ground coffee beans. These are a must-try!

Daily Crunch Golden Goodness Sprouted Almonds

Last, I tried the Golden Goodness Sprouted Almonds made with turmeric and sea salt, and was actually shocked at the mouthwatering flavor! They’re made with nutritional yeast (a staple in every vegan’s pantry that gives food a cheesy taste) along with coconut aminos and onion powder to deliver a nutty, zesty, cheesy snack. If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to chips or other flavorful yet unhealthy foods, this is it!

I highly recommend giving Daily Crunch Sprouted Almonds a try… and you may even get a chance to win some in my upcoming holiday giveaway! 😉

See you on Instagram!

Smoothie King’s New Vegan Pumpkin Smoothie

Is anyone else really excited for fall?! I know I am!

When I heard Smoothie King was debuting a new vegan pumpkin smoothie, I knew we were meant for each other.

Smoothie King’s Vegan Pumpkin Smoothie

From the Smoothie King Website: Headlining the fall lineup for Smoothie King is the Vegan Pumpkin Smoothie. Channel your inner wellness with this new, plant-based smoothie blend, made with Califia Farms® Oat Milk, organic pumpkin, bananas, dates, Sunwarrior® organic plant-based protein, spice blend and stevia plant-based sweetener. This smoothie is also the debut of oat milk as an option for Smoothie King guests. Califia Farms Oat Milk can now be added or substituted into any smoothie on the menu.

I think this smoothie is really good! It definitely gives you all of the pumpkin pie flavor without being overwhelming. It’s not too sweet either. There is a slight protein powder taste to it, but it’s not too bad. I’ll probably ask if they can take it out next time.

I will definitely get this again! Have you tried it?

FYI: Jamba Juice also released a vegan pumpkin smoothie recently!
