VA is for Bloggers- Mocktail Party

Wholesome Goodness is an all natural food company that aims to blend nutritious with delicious at an affordable price. They have dozens of yummy products ranging from soups, juices, chips, and salsas to trail mixes, cereals, and dressings. Not only is their food low in sugar, sodium, and fat but it is also incredibly simple, and really is the food you want to eat and feel good about. They are also incredibly generous and gave the wonderful Virginia is for Bloggers girls oodles of chips, juices, and salsas to host a little “mocktail party” at Liz’s house.

Since Wholesome Goodness gave us so many yummy chippies, each girl brought their own dip. You can imagine the awesomeness of this scenario, since it was a room full of food bloggers bringing their favorite spread to the table. My favorites were Mollee’s Pesto Dip , Sarah’s Hamburger Hummus, and Britts’ protein macaroons. It was a tough decision as to what was better the chips or the dips, because to me normally chips are just a vehicle to get dips into my face, but these crunchy little bites were pretty darn tasty.

I made a 7 Layer Greek Dip adapted from How Sweet It Is, Katherine also made it here so it is a blogger fave! This dip was a big hit both at the blogging event and when I took the extra batch I made to Trey’s parents house. It is everything you want to eat: tzatziki, hummus, creamy feta, tomatoes, olives, artichoke hearts, cucumbers, and I added red onion. I even put a large scoop of it over some spinach and kale today for lunch, so versatile!

This was my first real blogger event, but I met so many amazing women with hilarious, beautiful, inspirational blogs that I cannot wait to go to my next event! Go to http://www.wholesome-goodness.com to try some of their delicious snacks, they are incredibly generous with their samples and sent us away with bags of chips and trail mixes! Thank you Wholesome Goodness!

  1. Looks like some delicious fun, wish I could have made it…!

    We’ll go to the next event together for sure. But if it requires cooking, I’ll have to bribe you to make something cool for me.
