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!

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!
