Yumvelope Snacks

When I was asked to try out some tasty Yumvelope snacks to review on the blog, it couldn't have come at a better time!  

As a result of my crazy lupus medications, I've developed hypoglycemia.  I'm a 3 meal a day kind of girl, but now I have to stop what I'm doing and eat or I literally get ill.  I shake, get dizzy, and feel nauseated.  It happens about 3 hours after each meal so I'm trying to eat every 2-3 hours to prevent my sugar from dropping too low.  I even bought a blood glucose meter today to keep track of what's going on.  It's always something interesting in my life...never a dull moment.  

It's hard to come up with new, healthy, tasty snacks all of the time.  I need small, convenient snacks that I can throw in my purse or car.  

I love the idea of Yumvelope!  It's a monthly program that sends 6 or more full-size, all-natural, artisanal food products, including snacks, drinks, desserts, and chocolates.  If you love something, you can order more of it!

This was my box of goodies:

1.  Cristoforo Spelt Crackers - These were by far my favorite product in the box.  They were so light and crunchy.  Baby Girl and I devoured them with some sliced swiss cheese.  What a perfect snack.  I will definitely be ordering more of this.  It's a much better option than the processed crackers that we've been eating.  These sourdough crackers are made with organic ingredients in small batches.  Yes please!

2.  Gourmegg - I sprinkled this spice mix on fried eggs and my famous microwave eggs.  It was delicious on both.  It added a rich, savory, herb flavor to the sometimes boring breakfast staple.  

3.  Alter Eco Chocolates - This is definitely gourmet chocolate.  I love the mini size of the bars and the Dark Noir flavor was my favorite.  It was so rich and complex.  

4.  Liz Lovely Cookies - This is a popular brand of gluten free, organic cookies.  The two flavors, lemon-e poppy and cocoa diablo were super intense.  They were a bit too pungent for me, but if you love lemon and spicy chocolate, these are the cookies for you!

Save 20% on your first Yumvelope box with code BABYMAMAJUICE.  The boxes are all satisfaction guaranteed.  If you don't like what's in it, you get your money back!

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because we had another last minute house showing today.  I ran around like a mad woman cleaning the house before Baby Girl's Little Gym class.  They stayed for over an hour so that's a good sign.  Do a "house sold" dance for me please pretty please!

  2. I got the same Yumvelope and loved the cookies! I’m also hypoglycemic and eat around 5 meals a day. If you check behind the counter or near the pharmacy they have glucose tablets that are great to take anytime your blood sugar drops. They taste like a sweetart and also give a burst of energy!


A toast to you for sharing your thoughts!
