Vegan Food Swap

Earlier this month I came across the Vegan Food Swap. I thought it would be an awesome idea so I signed up. The swap rules were to send a package of vegan goods to your swap partner (staying under $20) and include a handwritten note, then blog about the experience. 

I've been vegan for about four months now and I am always eager to try new vegan food. I thought this would be a fun way to discover food items that may not be available in my area. 
Plus, I love swapping mail. 

Yesterday my food box arrived from Elisa of Elisa In Real Life.



My package included:

- A bag of Uncle Jerry's handmade pretzels. Each pretzel is rolled and twisted by hand and baked in a stone hearth oven. They are delicious!

- A package of multigrain squares. They are a great snack and I enjoy them more than the typical thick and round rice cake.

- Two containers of soup - tortilla soup with baked chips and pad thai noodle soup. I am looking forward to trying them because I love soup.

- A bottle of aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, yay!

This was a super fun swap and I am looking forward to the next one. A big thank you to Elisa for the package and Cat (The Verdant Life) for putting the Vegan Swap together.

I've seen and heard of these types of swaps before. But they were for things like make-up and stuff like that. Very interesting idea!!
