Here are a few (strange) recent food loves. Kind of an odd bunch, but once I find something I love, I’m obsessed with it for a few weeks (or months) then it’s on to the next thing….
1. PB2 I was a bit late to the PB2 party because I couldn’t find anywhere that sold it in Utah until the last few months (although it is available on amazon). I first found it at Harmons (local grocery), but now my closest Wal-Mart carries it. I love it in smoothies as well as on rice-cakes. Mix it with apple sauce instead of water for a yummy treat!
2. Rice cakes— I love these things. My favorite used to be the Trader Joe’s brand, but they stopped carrying them. It was a sad day, and I think
I’m positive I gasped out loud when the guy at TJ’s told me they were discontinued. 😦 Now I love the Mother’s brand from Whole Foods. Only 35 calories each- can’t beat that! Top with peanut butter, PB2, bananas, hummus…the options are endless!
3. Egg whites- I use a lot of egg whites (plain and in things like protein pancakes, etc.) but I hate separating eggs and throwing away the yolk. These babies are amazing. Once again Costco is my favorite! I have been loving egg whites cooked in coconut oil topped with cinnamon. I’m such a weirdo, but don’t knock it till you try it!
4. Silk Coconut Milk– I’ve loved the Dark Chocolate Almond milk for a while, but I recently picked this up and it is SO good (It was used in the smoothie I posted yesterday). Tastes amazing by itself and especially in smoothies.
