VeganMoFo – Personalized Food

I got an email today from Hungry Girl that said *Personalized Food* is the newest food trend. She pointed out the [me]&goji website where you can custom make your own cereal, name it, and have it shipped to you. There’s even a gluten free cereal base made from corn, flax, amaranth, and quinoa that kinda looks like fritos. To the base you can add in more grains, fruits, and nuts. It also calculates the nutrition data per serving as you create. *Diann’s Special Stash* would be gluten free cereal with coconut, mulberries, and chocolate covered cranberries added in. Check it out!


For your picture today you get another tester recipe. Here are Ricki’s Chocolate Mint Chocolate Cookies. These are soft but sturdy cookies with excellent flavor.




I’m so lucky to be a tester.

what a great link! Im really tempted to try that out. I need a high fiber cereal more than 10g is what I look for, but in the store most of them are either extremely high in fat as well, or extremely bland. Im going to go see what they've got, :)

Danggit! I hate tester photos because they mean no recipe (and the chocolate mint combo is my favorite!). (:

Amey said...

mmmm... tester photos always make me jealous. especially tester photos of cookies when I'm sitting here craving dessert!

personalized food... hm. I'll have to think on that.

I've heard so many good things about those cookies now. They look great.

We have a similar site in Germany. It is called "my muesly" and you can also select your own cereal and muesli mixtures. Quite a nice idea.

How fun! Making your cereal to your own standards, love it! You really are one lucky tester. DH would be beside himself tasting all the treats from this upcoming cookbook. I bet Chase is loving it too. :o)
