A Note About Van’s Natural Foods

Van's Natural Foods Coupons

Van’s provided several complimentary products for me to try recently (although this does not sway my opinion about their products). I had never tried their bars, crackers or waffles. I was extremely impressed with the taste and quality of their products. My two personal favorites are their gluten-free fire roasted veggie crackers and the honey nut crunch cereal! Seriously, the texture is great and their products appear regularly on my grocery lists now! Find them in Austin at HEB, Randall’s, Whole Foods, Central Market and Sprouts; or visit them online.

Stay tuned for some delicious recipes coming up in the next couple weeks! I recently made grain-free pumpkin banana pancakes, slow cooker beef vegetable stew, pumpkin butter cornbread and coconut creamed corn. I’ll be sharing all of these recipes very soon with y’all!

Beanitos Giveaway + Chipotle Bean Dip Recipe

I’m a sucker for a crunchy snack, especially ones of chip consistency. Beanitos is a local company that makes some of the most flavorful gluten-free chips out there.
