Raw, Gluten/Dairy-Free, Vegan, No Refined Sugar AND Delicious!?

 Coco-Roons by Wonderfully Raw Delights…

It’s hard to believe there is a packaged food item that combines all of these qualities–most importantly, delicious! This is, without a doubt, one of them.

Delicious and healthy food that you don’t have to make yourself is hard to find,which one of the reasons I mostly eat food “outside” of a box (and as you probably guessed, it’s one of the inspirations for the name of my Blog).

I do not, however, eat only raw food, gluten/dairy-free or vegan all of the time, but each of those terms has health benefits and I do try to incorporate them into my regular diet.

I discovered Coco-Roons at the Berkeley Whole Foods in their Raw Food Section near the Produce. When I saw them, as always, I read the ingredients on the package before putting it in my basket. When I don’t read the labels at the store, I am typically disappointed once I get home, finding some artificial ingredient, or one that I can’t pronounce. As their name Coco-Roons implies, they are a type of macaroon.

The first flavor I tried was Lemon Pie. I love lemon for its tart, refreshing and palate-cleansing effect after a meal. Chocolate Coco-Roons are also very good but Lemon Pie remains my favorite.

I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but every now and then, I do like to indulge in a something sweet, but not overly sugary, and I recently heard someone say 3 bites is a good limit if you are trying to keep your weight down–to me, 3 bites really does satisfy. These Coco-Roons are the perfect size.

There are 8 Coco-Roons in a package so they are not inexpensive (about $1 each), but if you consider the ingredients listed on their site, I think they’re worth it and I like supporting a company that offers a high quality product. If you don’t have a Whole Foods near you, they are available from their website (a half-case or case only). Check out the link above if you’d like to try something new and delicious!
