A huge thank you to Jesenia from Oh! Nuts for sending me some AWESOME products for review on the blog. Let me just say, this site is great for ordering just about any nuts, seeds, dried fruit, or giftbasket that you could imagine. They also make available chocolate, gourmet coffee, frozen novelties, and baking supplies as well!
The perfect potato chip replacement, an assortment of sweet potato, squash, zucchini, and string bean chips fried and spiced to perfection! The scarlet colored seasoning that coated these veggies had a sweet barbeque flavor that was completely addicting! The nutritional stats were pretty decent too:
Next up: Mixed Fruit California
The California flavors in this bag really appealed to my sweet tooth. You would swear that this blend of apples, prunes, apricots, raisins, and pears had tons of added sugar as naturally sweet as they are! Don’t worry! The only sugar in these babies was the natural sugar from the fruit. They were like candy to eat! Amazingly moist and chewy. The prunes were the stars of this blend in my opinion! Apples coming in a close second ;) The stats were good for these as well! Just 80 calories, 0g of fat, 2g of fiber, and 1g of protein in each serving! Glorious.
In addition to this dried fruit, they also sent me some Naturally Dried Mango and Guava Slices!!
These two were hands down my favorite products from this company. The only thing I didn’t like is that they came with zero nutritional facts. However, because they were the naturally dried versions, I drew comfort from the fact that they had absolutely NO added sugar or preservatives. Completely succulent, both of these fruits exploded with flavor in your mouth. The guava had a sweetness about it like no other fruit I’ve ever had before. I could literally have eaten these entire bags (YES THEY WERE ONE WHOLE POUND). Haha. Luckily for me, the family couldn’t let that happen. They chowed down and enjoyed these too! No one could leave them alone!
It’s only 10:30am and I’ll admit, I’m already in need of an attitude adjustment. I was an hour late to work this morning due to idiot drivers who don’t know how to merge. GRRRRRRR. I get SO frustrated by that. Seriously. You should have to retake your drivers test at least once every ten years, in my opinion. Either people are totally oblivious or just don’t care! THEN to top it off, I get to work and someone parked in my spot. I have a parking pass. They don’t. Talk about a snowball effect…Okay. Done being negative. On to the positive!
Anyway, last night was a lot of fun. When I got home from work, I was excited to see some new products for review! So stay tuned to find out which ones I loved! After tearing open all the boxes, I decided on some s’mores soy crisps + a Jonagold for some stationary bike fuel:
Granted, I don’t agree with suing fast food companies for lack of self control in Americans, but it is truly amazing how harmful processed fast foods can really be to our bodies!
It almost grossed me out to the point of nausea a little bit. Makes me proud to say that I haven’t eaten fast food in over two years (nor do I have any desire to).
Anyway, after the movie, I decided to make some dinner. I bought some lite tofu at the store the other day and ate the entire container (biking 50 miles makes a girl hangry!) Gliding Calm style (uncooked) with Tribal Moose Cranberry Barbeque sauce.
Then I treated myself to one of these yummmmmmy RUSH bowls for dessert (stay tuned for reviews once I’ve tried them all!):
After I showered, I organized the jewelry box that I got for Christmas, since it finally got attached to my wall, and then played cards with the little sister the rest of the night. I got a craving later for the weirdest food ever. Canelli beans! I seriously ate them straight from the can after sprinkling in some splenda. I know I’m a weirdo, but I’ve learned to give in to cravings. Maybe it was my body telling me I needed some iron? Who knows.
Breakfast this morning was a no fail combo of:
