Eek, is it Sunday night already? Please say it ain’t so!! Anyone?!
Well, I guess I’ll stop being oblivious to the fact that it is (Sunday night) and move on with my post, right?
Hmm, O-K so please don’t get mad at me, BUT I’ll be writing my post about Bryan Kest tomorrow (not today).
(Kristin sweats profusely and laughs nervously wondering what the readers are thinking. Are ya mad?)
Well, SORRY if you are, but it has been a weird, hectic day.
Instead, I decided to write a quick post about my quirky foodie likes and dislikes!
Alright, SO I guess your first thought might be: Kristin’s a foodie?!
Uh, YES, I consider myself a foodie! I mean I’m not the most dedicated foodie in the entire world, but I definitely enjoy reading/talking about food fads. I guess that counts.
Anyways, during the last couple of weeks, I’ve been playing with my food (trying new products). Bad girl, right? No dessert for me! Seriously though, I’ve discovered some really great foods that I love and some that I don’t particular like. Here’s the list!
NEW DISCOVERIES THAT I LOVE:
1] CHIA SEEDS (OMG, chia seeds mixed into my protein shake with peanuts!! WOOHOO, can you say de-lish-us?!)
2] HAMMER NUTRITION VEGAN CHOCOLATE PROTEIN POWDER (This is THE BEST of THE BEST! Great taste, 20 grams of protein per serving with only 2 grams of sugar, plus HELLO, it’s vegan!! I’ve been looking for a scrumptious vegan protein for A LONG TIME now! Not to mention, organic ingredients and shhhhh, don’t tell, but spirulina is a key ingredient in it and guess what, my stomach is fine with it. YES!)
3] EDAMAME (Wowzers, I’ve been loving some edamame in my organic brown rice/red pepper/hummus wraps!! Edamame + lemon juice = YUM! Bonus, it’s packed with protein, too!)
4] TRADER JOE’S LEMON CURD (Man, OH MAN, this lemon curd spread is absolutely, WITHOUT A DOUBT the tastiest topping I’ve had in a LONG time (at least store bought). You can mix it into whipped cream as a cake filling/topping, pour over waffles, bagels, toast, etc., or just eat it with a spoon like me! It’s scrumptious on french vanilla ice cream, too!!)
5] TRADER JOE’S COLD BREW COFFEE CONCENTRATE (If you’re looking for a I’M WALKING ON SUNSHINE kind of bright, energized pep before/during/after a workout, buy some of this stuff, mix it with half part organic creamer, and you’re good to go!! WINK, WINK (in my case blink, blink, blink, blink….hehe!)
6] THAI LIME AND CHILI ALMONDS (The distinctive flavors of these spicy almonds make any salad, noodle dish, wrap, and even nut mix a real delight!! TRY EM OUT!!!)
NEW DISCOVERIES THAT I DON’T LOVE:
1] ORGANIC TURKISH APRICOTS DRIED FRUIT (Yucky, I’m not a fan! They do have a hint of sweetness to them, though, but still…)
2] TEMPEH (Call me crazy, but ever since I read a few articles about tempeh being used as a lamb substitute in dishes, ICKY, I couldn’t do it. I know, I KNOW, it’s NOT really lamb meat…it’s vegetarian through and through (made of barely, soybeans, spices, etc.), but I don’t know, it has this crunchy texture to it, too that grossed me out. Also, in my opinion, it had a bad aftertaste! I’ll stick with tofu thank you!!)
