So thanks to the awesome Ibotta app I discovered an amazing new product by BeyondMeat!
As a vegetarian I struggle to get enough protein (I know there are tons of ways to get protein as a vegetarian, but I rarely meet the daily suggested minimum despite these great ideas). This company has a mission I can get behind!
“We believe there is a better way to feed theplanet. Our mission is to create mass-market solutions that perfectly replace animal protein with plant protein. We are dedicated to improving human health, positively impacting climate change, conserving natural resources and respecting animal welfare. At Beyond Meat, we want to make the world a better place and we’re starting one delicious meal at a time.”
And this is why I liked them before I even found their product!!
^^^^And this is why I love Publix!!^^^^
Per my usual couponing routine, before I go shopping I check out the coupon blogs I follow, as well as the deals available on Ibotta (it’s free, fun and so easy to use! Click Here to download it to your smartphone!) and Cartwheel (if I am going to Target, also super easy to use).
“The best part about Ibotta is that you earn real money, not points or other made-up currencies. What you see is what you get. 100% of your earnings can be transferred to PayPal or Venmo as soon as you’ve earned $5. If you’d like a gift card instead, you can start cashing out as soon as you’ve earned $2.”
These are the products I found (available until 4/4/14 at 1:59am exclusive to Publix!)
This week I was so excited when I saw a brand new product with a $1.00 rebate available! Not only was it vegetarian friendly, but also gluten free! I used to add Boca Ground Crumbles to all my salads and stirfrys for an easy source of protein, but unforuntately, like almost every other meat substitute on the market, (UNTIL NOW) Boca products all have wheat/gluten in them. When I gave up gluten last September (for health reasons), I ended up giving up a huge portion of the protein in my diet. I consider myself a VERY healthy eater, sometimes to a fault, but I know this is one thing I need to work on.
Well work on it I shall! Part 2 of this review will be available as soon as I try out these chicken strips (within the next two days I promise)!! I went to Publix tonight with the mister (I kinda sorta love going grocery shopping together… is that weird? There is something so adorable and cozy about it to me. Yea, I’m a dork. Deal with it!)and picked up two bags of the them, the Southwest Style and the Lightly Seasoned. And I got the $1.00 rebate on Ibotta.
YAY!! I had already had dinner so I wasn’t able to try them tonight but I will figure out a fun recipe to try them in soon.
The review will also include nutrition facts for their products and more details about the company! I am hoping to find their Beef Free Crumbles soon. Unfortunately my Publix did not carry them but there are FIVE other Publix in a ten mile radius from my house so fear not, I will find them!
