Hey everyone! Had a college first today…first paper! Done and done. Now to tackle the TONS and TONS of reading I have for next week. Good thing its a long weekend!
Haha! Four days in and I am already looking forward to days off. So sad.
Today I have a really cool review for you! And what makes it even better is that you can try the products out for yourself!
And its sort of perfect timing for me to review these products because I’ve been using them NON-STOP since I moved into my dorm!
Bob’s Red Mill let me pick three of there products (and they have a HUGE selection!) to review!
I wanted to pick some things that were unique and that I had never purchased on my own before!
Green pea flour, dried blueberries, and buckwheat groats!
I had never even heard of green pea flour before so I think I was most excited to try that! I didn’t really know what to expect or what the consistency of it would be, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was very similar to peanut flour! Obviously not peanut flavored but it is awesome mixed with a liquid into a paste and even to make a kind of “quick soup”. Plus you can’t beat its protein content! Even higher than that of peanut flour!
I have been enjoying it the most mixed with veggie broth, spices, and frozen peas to make a kind of split pea soup….perfect for a quick dorm room snack! And also, mixed with water it turns into an awesome spread for crackers or even dip! I am a pea lover in general , so I really enjoy the flavor of the flour…but for those of you who aren’t I will warn ya that the flavor it pretty strong!
On to the blueberries! I was so excited to see that Bob’s offered unsweetened dried blueberries!
I always see them in stores but they are usually loaded with sugar and unnecessary added ingredients! But not these babies…perfectly simple and natural…JUST BLUEBERRIES! And they taste darn good!
I have only used them as toppers so far but I can’t wait to experiment with some baking or cooking (it’ll have to wait till the weekend though!). What I really want to try is HOMEMADE BLUEBERRY MUFFIN LARABARS! I finally have the main ingredient!
And last but not least the buckwheat groats!
I have used buckwheat groats in the past, but only the roasted kind! I love them as a topper for oats and yogurt…and the Bob’s Red Mill raw variety add amazing crunch and texture! Plus I love their nutty flavor!
All in all, three AWESOME, quality products! And perfect for dorm life! They all have really come in handy and are pretty convenient to for adding some fun to boring dorm food.
And the best part of this whole post?
You can try these products too if you’d like!
Bob’s Red Mill will send one of my readers a prize pack that includes these three products!

Okay, it is waaaaay past my college bed time….gotta get some good rest before my classes tomorrow!
Have an amazing day/night/weekend friends! And thank you for all the words of encouragement and awesome advice for dorm living and college life! I really appreciate it!
PS: I miss having time to comment on blogs, pin on pinterest, and be more involved with all of y’all…but school comes first! I have the rest of my life to procrastinate! LOL.
Oh and here’s a little something for all my fellow freshman out there…
Today’s Healthy Help: More direction help! A few visitors on campus were looking for the library today so I took them there and got a Tim Horton’s in the process! Told the cashier that she looked wonderful! Feels good to make someone smile. Plus the campus employee’s are so nice! 🙂
