Simple Sense embodies their ethos: “Live Your Most Radiant Life.”
I had the pleasure of getting to sample some raw, vegan treats from Simple Sense last week and boy, the pleasure was all mine! Simple Sense is a new company, established in 2014, started by nutritionist (and entrepreneur!!) Deanna and I have no doubt they will continue to expand and flourish. You can never have too many vegan companies promoting nutritional and ethical foods, right?
Simple Sense specializes in delivering raw, vegan snacks to the health conscious and ethical consumer. The best thing about their marketing and products, is that everyone can enjoy these foods and they are just as much “treats” as they are healthy snacks.
My Simple Sense goodies arrived in beautiful, environmentally-friendly packaging and each product is individually wrapped with clear labels giving you all the (minimal) ingredients and nutritional information. The bonus of this packaging is that I get to keep and re-use it all! The cute bag it came in and the containers! Talk about bonus.
At the moment I happen to be insanely busy – running between work and rehearsals and performances, so these snacks could not have come at a better time. Not only are they super tasty, but they gave me a much-needed energy boost throughout the day and left me feeling fantastic.
So, what did I get to sample? Feast your eyes….
Raw Peanut Butter Cookie
I’m going to start with my favorite. Thank God I got THREE of these bad-boys. Three!! And let me tell you – I could have eaten a hundred. The Raw Peanut Butter Cookie is made up of simply almonds, dates, peanut butter, vanilla and sea salt. All organic, of course. These cookies are super soft and have a texture you’d expect from most raw deserts, but the flavor balance and indulgent taste is very impressive.
Healthy food shouldn’t be this good!! The cookies can be viewed and purchased here on the Simple Sense online store.
Chocolate Almond Energy Bites
Having snacks like this to throw in your bag is a true God-send. Most of us know how important organization and planning is to maintain a healthy lifestyle and Simple Sense delivers. As you can see from the packaging, these raw “Bites” are all stored in tubes, keeping them fresh and easy to cart around. There are four in each package – and are sold on the Simple Sense site for only $3.49 per package. Considering these are all organic, home-made and delivered to your door – I think that’s INSANE value.
The Chocolate Almond bites taste exactly as you’d imagine – combining almonds, dates, cocoa, chia seeds and vanilla to make lovely, tasty snacks, bursting with energy. I’ve tried to make raw balls at home many times and these are so fresh and yummy they really taste like they’ve come right out of your blender. For those busy periods in life where you have limited time to plan and cook, you can get the real deal delivered right to you!
Vanilla Cashew Energy Bites
Another delicious flavor combination! I had a cashew addiction for a very long time – so these bites were right up my alley. Made with almonds, dates, cashew butter, vanilla, chia seeds and shredded coconut. Check out the Cashew Energy bites online here.
Peanut Butter Energy Bites
Again – delicious! These bites are similar to the Peanut Butter cookie taste and contain almonds, dates, peanut butter, chia seeds, seseme seeds and vanilla.
Delicious, energy-packed, nutritious… amazing!
The Simple Sense website and company is a business for these lovely products, but they also act as an educational tool for all things nutritional and ethical. There is a page on their website where Deanna blogs about animal rights issues and environmental concerns, which was amazing to see. She also has lovely recipes, nutritional information and plenty more resources. Check them all out here – www.simplesensenow.com
A quick fun-fact – if you don’t like any of the ingredients in one of the products on offer – you can ask to swap something out with your order. How cool is that? Just in case you were in any doubt your goodies were being made fresh!

Thank you Simple Sense for letting Team Vilda try your goodies! There will certainly be more on order. I’m officially addicted.
