In this food swap, put on by MeShell and you can get details here Canadian Vegan Food Swap (with a link to find the USA version for those of you not north of the 49th). Each participant is given someone to send food too. Someone else sends a package to them. The idea is to try to find food your partner would like that they are not likely to have tried or have easy access to.
My sender this time was in the Toronto area and did her best to find foods I was less likely to find in Vancouver, while trying to be kid friendly at the same time. My package came from Lauren at http://www.sweatpotatopies.blogspot.ca/
2 Gluten Free products from Sweets from the Earth.
Mulling Spice from Simply Organics
Prana Tamari Almonds
These are a total favorite of mine although I suspect with the recent pancreas issues, almonds are off my list now. Happily the boys liked them.
New Moon Kitchen Granola
Confetti SprinkelzThese were something I was happy to see, so happy once I opened them. See, I've bought these before and was so disappointed. I really try hard to avoid or at least limit the toxins in food colors, but preschoolers and sprinkles in baking are made for each other. When I bought it box the sprinkles were a monotone grey. Bleh. But this box, the colors were so much more obvious. And while no, these are not like the ones with the toxins for brightness, they are still colorful enough to entice the kids without the damage.
They boys have been begging me to make cupcakes since seeing these, so we'll be doing some up soon.
Overall, this was a fabulous swap thanks to Lauren. I look forward to the next one.
