I’ve been meaning to share some love for Pure Market Express with my readers… if you’re not familiar with Pure Market Express, it’s a great raw vegan delivery company. I’ve blogged about them in the past and I’m definitely a fan. As a new mom with limited time, raw food delivery is a blessing! And, I was so excited when Pure Market Express sent me a box of goodies for my birthday at the end of June. What I was most concerned about when they sent the delivery was that I live in Arizona and the summers are HOT! So, food delivery is a tricky thing. However, Pure Market Express has mastered that task. My food arrived well chilled. In fact, I should’ve waited before diving in to some of it, like the Boston Cream Pie, so it could thaw. But…. hello! It’s Boston Cream Pie. I couldn’t wait. I was also supposed to save some for Greg… um… I was able to save him a couple of bites but I couldn’t help myself as I devoured almost the whole thing in one sitting. Here are some pictures…

Here are all of the raw foods they sent. I had to pass on the Cherry Honey Crunch Bars because we’re vegan and I don’t do honey. Read why here. But the other items were fantastic. I was especially impressed with the Turkey Salad Wrap flavors (as you know, it’s not real turkey). And, the smoothie mix was brilliant in that it was still completely frozen when it arrived. That means that when I order that again, I can order a few of them and just toss them in my freezer so I have some emergency smoothies on hand ready to thaw.
Have you enjoyed food from Pure Market Express? What are your favorite items? If you haven’t, then check them out. I’ve also had food from them delivered to the hotel when I’ve gone on vacation! It’s a great way to stay on your raw diet if you don’t have access to raw food while traveling.

I was sent a package of food for review by the cool people at Pure Market Express. Have you heard of them? Tried their raw food delivery? Let me say… GOOOOOOOOD STUFF! I’m a fan of their work. Not only do they make good raw vegan food, but their energy is pure love. It comes through in both their food and their email correspondence / customer service. That’s important to me. I’ll be honest, this hasn’t been my experience with all of the raw food delivery companies out there.
Raw food delivery can be so helpful with living the raw food lifestyle. For starters, as a pregnant woman, I sure do appreciate being able to sit back and put my feet up on the couch while I wait for the delivery man. Top that with feeding my body and my growing baby some of the healthiest food in the world. That rocks! I also love that they’re including the nutritional information on the packages of food now. That can be very helpful for people who want to calculate calories, protein, fiber, etc.
Secondly, I’m a fan of raw food delivery during busy times in life… for example the holidays. It’s such a relief that amidst all the food prep for gatherings, attending parties, cleaning, decorating, shopping, and resting from all the activity, it’s a real treat to have a box of organic raw food show up at my door.
Thirdly, raw food delivery is great when traveling.Check out this post (video) I recorded when we traveled to New York and Pure Market Express treated me to a delivery for the first time. (My how my hair has grown since that video in September).
Here are some of the foods they sent to me this second time.
Bacon Jalapeno Poppers
These are really yummy. I had them in the last package and was smiling from ear to ear when they sent them to me again. The combination of spice and creaminess is wonderful. (pictured)
Banana Cream Pie
Pure Market Express knew how much I loved their Banana Cream Pie that they sent me TWO pieces in this delivery. The flavor was the same awesomeness as before, but this time the presentation was different. In NY, the pie arrived in a whole piece. In AZ, the pie arrived kind of all mushed up, like a pudding. It might have been the longer distance it traveled that caused this, but I don’t know. It was still tasty though!
Maple Apple Crepes
Hhmmmm! Excellent. I really enjoyed these and hope to have them again some day. A lovely treat. (pictured)
I specifically requested this and was very happy with the result. I wish I had saved some for my husband to try. The one thing I’d change… I’d like a little more sauce with it.
There was some zing to this that affected my mouth a bit (my husband’s mouth, too) that I could do without, but otherwise it was good flavor and a pretty presentation. (pictured)
These were fun. My favorite part was the somewhat crunchy exterior – reminded me of donut holes.
