Tofu, Qrunch and Giveaway!

I went back to Central Market yesterday, which is my absolute favorite place for all things tofu! They have so many choices, and  a lot of it is fresh. It's so awesome!
Believe it or not, all of that delicious tofu was under ten dollars! I love the baked tofu that wildwood makes, but I can't stand the price of it. Baked tofu is even overpriced at Trader Joe's. These tofu cutlets were like one dollar. It's insane. They even have Inari waiting to be stuffed with sushi rice! I actually thought I got some. Next time. It's really a tofu lovers paradise!
I also saw this Amy's vegan ice cream at the Market. Did you know Amy's was making vegan ice cream? I surely did not. I chose mint chocolate chip. It's made with coconut milk, so it should be nice and rich and creamy. I also found this tea on sale, and it is out of this world. Especially with some caramel creamer! Heaven.
I also finally found these Qrunch burgers. I fell in love with these when I lived in PA., and they've been strangely hard to find in Seattle. The burgers are vegan, gluten free, pretty much allergen free. I find sometimes foods that are free of all allergens can be a bit bland, or weirdly textured, just a little off. Sometimes it reminds me of my mom's hippie concoctions that weren't always a success. But, these burgers are anything but bland or weird. I had the spicy Italian before, so I tried the original this time around. I felt like the original is the true test. Not bland, and when baked in the oven, it's nice and crispy on the outside, and kind of fluffy on the inside. I love it. I feel like the original kind of reminds me of the Boca crispy "chicken" patties, only better. I had mine on a WW pita with spicy hummus, Romaine lettuce, shredded carrots and Dijon mustard. Insanely good. Actually, it was better than I remembered, like maybe they improved the formula? I don't know but I really love these burgers! Here is their website if you'd like to check it out.
I happen to have some coupons for these delicious burgers that were sent to me by the company. I had Emailed them when I first tried the burgers, and they sent me coupons and such. Companies like that really stand out in my mind. Anyway, I want to do my first give-away, or whatever, I guess I just want to share. I think these are delicious, and coupons always make me a lot braver to try new things. I have three free box coupons, and four one dollar off a box coupons. So just check around in your area, and if you can find these burgers let me know. I'll just do it on order, the first three will get the dollar off, and the four after that will get the dollar off coupons. So exciting! So, just check around and let me know in the comments, and then I will get them out in the mail! I'll also mention when all the coupons are accounted for. Hope I'm doing this right!
Today is the kind of perfect, gorgeous day that makes me happy to be alive, and even happier to be in Seattle! I'm going to go and explore that new to me second hand bookstore, and possibly some other thrifting. Hopefully I can get some pictures.
Happy Wednesday!

  2. wegman's had the Amy's vegan ice cream but I would never pay the $6.99/pint. Just thought it was unreasonable when I could get So Delicious for at least $2 less. Funny where we draw the line. Sweet of you to have the giveaway, but I dont think those burgers are down here and if they are, with a couple dollars off they would still be outrageous.

    1. This Amy's was on sale at Central Market for under five dollars. I agree I wouldn't pay $6.99 for a pint, that's more than Ben&Jerry's! I wish food from the mainland weren't soo crazy expensive!

  3. I keep seeing those Qrunch burgers at Wegman's and thinking about getting them. But I kept putting it off because I am really good at sticking to my shopping list lol

    And I LOVE buying tofu at Asian food markets! I can get a block of tofu for a buck! It is like $1.70-3 at wegmans depending on the brand and style. Even better is sometimes the brands are more local! There is a local philly company that makes tofu for asian food markets and even does seitan and pressed tofu. Which is sweet! I can get seitan for stirfries for like $2 a package!

    1. You just won the first free coupon! I just published today's post saying how no one had gotten back to me yet! If you Email me an address I will get it in the mail! My email is yogadogwalker@hotmail.com
      Two dollars for pre-made seitan is amazing! I guess I always look for tofu, I need to check out their seitan selection.
      I'm excited because one of the packages of tofu is already pressed, so it's going to be a great texture!

    2. Yeah I am not sure how big the selection would be. I know my local shop has like one brand but I've noticed at another asian market they had a lot of frozen fake meat, including faux shrimp, squid, and fish.

    3. For some reason just the name vegan squid absolutely terrifies me!
