Vida Vegan Con 2013 Goodie Bags
As I mentioned on previous post, the Vida Vegan Con goodie bag was so darn big it deserves its own post. So here it is. Mauro and I each got a bag so multiply all this by two. Yay!

I like these better than corn chips. They’re cheesy and packed with protein too.

Super crunchy flakes. I love buckwheat as savory dish so it took few tries for me to get used to it as cereal. Now I really like it.
