GoPicnic was kind enough to send me 2 of their ready-to-eat meals to feature in my 2011 Holiday Gift Guide. I’ve tried their meals in the past, and I think they are the perfect alternative to eating fast food–especially when you need to eat on the go, or want to bring something healthier to work to eat for lunch!
I received the Sunbutter + Crackers: All-Natural Meal, a balanced meal that includes Sunbutter Creamy Sunflowerseed Spread, Crunchmaster Multi-Grain Sea Salt Crackers, Enjoy Life Seed & Fruit Trail Mix, Niagara Naturals Tropical Fruit Bites and an Enjoy Life Double Chocolate Cookie. This meal had 12g protein, 4g fiber, had 490 calories, and was shockingly good, as I’ve never tried Sunbutter, which is made from sunflower seeds, and is eaten as a healthier alternative to peanut butter.
Sunbutter is a bit milder than peanut butter, and tastes a bit like sunflower seeds, but it is just as creamy and it even looks like and has the same texture as peanut butter. If someone handed me a Sunbutter and jelly sandwich, I am not sure that I could tell that is wasn’t a PB&J sandwich. I liked the crackers and cookie, too, but left the trail mix and the fruit bites for our lunches. This meal is All-Natural, Gluten Free, Vegan & Free of 7 Common Allergens including wheat, dairy, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts and egg. It sells for $4.99.
I also received the Hummus + Crackers: All-Natural Meal, a Gluten Free, Vegan & Kosher balanced meal featuring Wild Garden Hummus Dip, Crunchmaster Multi-Seed Crackers, Seapoint Farms Dry Roasted Edamame, Sweet Perry Orchards Baja Blend Fruit & Nut Mix and a Terra Nostra Organic Dark Chocolate Square. 24g protein and 12g fiber, 410 calories, and was also mouth-watering good. The Wild Garden Hummus Dip is THE BEST store-bought Hummus I’ve ever had, and the crackers were out of this world good. It is a steal at the price of $4.99.
GoPicnic offers a variety of meals, ones that are all-natural, gluten-free, vegan, kosher, GMO free, and have no artificial flavors. Actually, all of their meals are made with no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup, no added MSG, and have no artificial flavors or colors. Who wouldn’t want to eat something so healthy and tasty while traveling, or even on a picnic or as an alternative to fast food on any occasion? I know I would.
You may purchase GoPicnic meals on Amazon.com or at GoPicnic.com. If you aren’t into the whole online shopping thing, you may also purchase them at Costco, Cost Plus World Market and Wegman’s nationwide.
