Gluten and Dairy-Free Bits of Cookie Crumb Bark from Pure Crumb

If it weren’t for quarantine that makes me snack more and crave extra sweets, it is camping. With social distancing we have been able to use our RV still in certain campgrounds to change our scenery. They space our RV sites every 2 sites so no one is right beside you and it has been quiet with parks and tent areas closed so it is the perfect way to get away and then we eat a lot!

The best part about camping (glamping for us) is stocking up on the good snacks and bringing movies to watch and games to play. We are confined together with our son away from video games and us forced to slow down and stay in. The dogs get to run in the campground dog areas and we love our lazy days out.

Last weekend I took my Pure Crumb snacks. When you crave cookies and brownies but don’t want the gluten or diary the Pure Crumb bark satisfies that sweet tooth. Unlike many gluten and clean snacks these don’t have the a disappointing aftertaste and taste great.

Pure Crumb cookie and brownie bark are thin and crispy and run about 130 calories a bag. These snacks are only sweetened with Organic Evaporated Cane Juice.  No sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners and no GMO’s.

 Pure Crumb is now sold in grocery stores, gyms and health food stores throughout New York City as well as available on Amazon.

Add this to your popcorn and salads – Award-Winning Parma! Vegan Parmesan

Coming from Southern Oregon is this dairy-free, gluten-free, gmo-free, soy-free, KETO, Kosher and Vegan parmesan you can shake onto salads, popcorn and more! Parma! is a superfood parmesan that was “established in response to a rapidly-growing need within the vegetarian marketplace for a breakthrough allergen-free parmesan alternative”.

We love sprinkling this on our popcorn for our frequent movie nights we’ve been having lately with our extra inside time. I love the Garlicky Green and my son likes it but now I see him mixing the Original with Garlicky Green because he says sometimes the garlic is too strong for him so by mixing them he says it’s the best flavor! It really has a great and robust flavor and for me, I love my popcorn to have this great extra flavor.

It comes in a shaker bottle and is perfect for on the go so don’t forget to stash one in your purse when you can head back to the theaters and shows again! I think they are great gift basket gifts for foodies.

Parma! comes in 4 flavors – Original, Garlicky Green, Chipotle Cayenne and Better than Bacon. Make sure you search their locator to find how you can find Parma! near you.

National Beer Day is April 7

National Beer Day is April 7

April 7 is National Beer Day. It all started when President Roosevelt took the major first step toward ending Prohibition and signed a law allowing people to brew and distribute beer in the United States. This happened April 7, 1933 according to National Today.

Today we take for granted the refreshing taste of an ice cold beer when visiting with friends, camping, eating out or even movie night at home. Personally, I love beer especially light beers and Hefeweizen beers. When we head out to eat I have restaurants I love based on the beers they brew. Seattle is full of family-friendly pubs with good beer and equally good food.

This beer above I was able to enjoy on Pier 66 in NYC on vacation. It was the last night of our trip and I knew the last time I was in NYC I had some good beer and food on the water and could not remember the name, so we head down to the Chelsea Market and started walking until I spotted that familiar spot. The best way to end a fun trip!

2020 will be a unique year for celebrating National Beer Day. Prior to 1933 they could not find or consume beer, now in 2020 we can buy and consume it but without our larger circle of friends or family. I am not sure what makes me more sad, the thought of no beer or no big company to drink one with on April 7!
