Just Cookie Dough

Just Cookie Dough

Recently I was contacted by Hampton Creek about possibly willing to try one of their  products—Just Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. I agreed as I am always curious about all-natural products. Plus, I knew the kids would be happy about their favorite thing on Earth—chocolate chip cookies. I received the cookie dough nicely, professionally packaged in a big ice box. The kids were beyond happy. And so was I.

Note that this is a volunteer review. I am not affiliated with the brand and neither I am paid to write about it. I just wanted to share my personal experience with you because I know some people are looking for ways to eat better and healthier, or are on special, restricted diets, or they don’t always find the time to bake from scratch. In such cases, all-natural products such as this, can help you.

Just Cookie Dough is better for you and better for the planet. In a snapshot, here are the benefits and specs of the product:

1. All natural. No artificial colors or flavors.
2. Sustainable
3. Cholesterol-free
4. Dairy-free
5. Egg-free
6. Non-GMO (this is so important!)
7. Kosher-certified
8. Affordable

    Garlicky Beet Salad with Yogurt and Walnuts
    Tell me what comes to your mind when you read the blog title? Let me guess. Perhaps, just like me, you think it sounds super duper healthy? Am I right or am I right? I think I am right. Health on a plate, literally. Beets, garlic, plain yogurt, walnuts. Each ingredient in this salad I’ll write about speaks of nutrition...

Yes, a cookbook. I always rush to those small nooks in clothing and home goods stores to see if there are any...
