Both the SunButter and tri-soy medley are both really healthy snacks. Perfect for on-the-go and with traveling. Fast Charge I love because it gives me a healthy energy boost, safely. The packets are also great for throwing into your gym bag.

My Thoughts

March's Breakfast themed box was one of my favorites! I loved every single item this month. I have yet to try the Quick Pickle Mixes but I look forward to making some homemade pickles this summer. I have tried a few other Loacker products before, in past boxes, but these espresso flavored wafers are the best! They're crunchy, creamy and taste just like a cup of espresso. Not to mention, they go great with a hot cup of coffee! The Oreo bar is great because it has a slight mint flavor to it. It's not overly minty. I love the combination of mint and chocolate together. BluePrints Energy Tea is great! I love anything matcha so I was so excited to try this. I recommend drinking this energy tea chilled, though. Julian's Recipe Waffles are delish! I love that they are individually wrapped and can be eaten immediately. No syrup is needed to enjoy these Belgium waffles. The Great Grains cereal and the milked brown rice go so well together. It's a great, filling breakfast. I love 7Days Croissants. I have had them before and I really like the softness of the croissant and its flakiness. The peanut butter and jelly filling is not that bad, too! ;)

Welcome to A Sampling Bee! Today, I share with you Everyday Dals from Maya Kaimal! Maya Kaimal makes fine Indian foods such as sauces, chickpea chips, naan chips and now their new Dals! These Dals are inspired by lentil dishes that are cooked in various ways by Indians worldwide. Maya Kaimal has given them their own little twist by layering in some of their favorite ingredients. These plant-based Dals are so good that you'll want to consume them daily!

Maya Kaimal's Dals made with only high quality ingredients. Every flavor Dal is Organic, Vegan and non-GMO. These Dals come in convenient pouches. Each 10 ounce pouch contains 2 servings. Everyday Dals can be enjoyed by themselves, as a side dish, served over a bed of rice or served next to chicken, veggies or fish.

Maya Kaimal Dals are available in five flavors:



Red Lentil + Butternut Squash + Coconut- Red lentils (masoor dal) start red and turn golden and creamy when cooked. Made with butternut squash, coconut, red chili and brown mustard seeds for a thicker texture with a hint of sweetness.

My Thoughts

I love Indian food and I don't eat it as much as I'd like to. Maya Kaimal's Dals are amazingly delicious and flavorful. They are the best packaged Indian food that I have ever had! Not to mention that they are so easy to prepare. One and a half minutes in the microwave is quick and convenient. I love how they can be eaten all by themselves or as a side dish. The Dals are amazing just by themselves and I don't feel like I need to add anything else to them. Each Dal is so different and just out of this world good! They're loaded with veggies, beans and spices. I'm in love!!

My two favorite flavors are the Green Garbanzo and the Kidney Bean. These two are my favorite because the green garbanzo is loaded with corn and peas. And, I love the Kidney Bean Dal because its loaded with beans and veggies. It resembles a vegetarian chili. I just love it! My husband loves them, too, and has requested them for his lunch!

Maya Kaimal's Everyday Dals are perfect for a quick lunch or dinner. SHOP Dals!
