Trader Joe’s Red Lentil Pasta

Even though I’m not gluten free I’m still intrigued with alternative pastas. Mostly because they pack more nutrients than plain ol’ pasta. This red lentil pasta caught my eye in Trader Joe’s and I had to try it. My plans for these pretty things? Cauliflower alfredo sauce, peas and chicken sausage…mmm.

Pipcorn

These little morsels are as addictive as they look. Popcorn is one of our favorite snacks at home. When I saw Pipcorn was on sale at Whole Foods I grabbed a bag of Salt & Vinegar and a bag of Truffle. Because if a food product has “truffle” on it, I need to have it. Both flavors were SO good and make for the perfect snack while snuggling on the couch watching movies.

Trader Joe’s Matcha White Chocolate Bar

As Jon stated, “It tastes like matcha caramel”. Jon is not a big white chocolate person, but it was hard to get him to save me a few pieces of this bar. The matcha and white chocolate are the perfect combo for a sweet treat.

Red Ace Beet Shots

My acupuncturist has told me that potassium is gold and these Red Ace shots were on sale at Whole Foods so I thought I’d give them a try since beets are high in potassium. I took one before a workout the other day and it made me feel awesome. I have some minor heart issues that potassium is said to help with and I do feel like the shot helped me. And they taste great!

Amazing Grass Bars

These bars were BOGO at Whole Foods so I couldn’t resist, plus I love trying new bars. The ingredients in these bad boys are top notch…they’re chock full of goodness. However, their taste leaves something to be desired. Needless to say, I don’t think I’d grab these again.

Foodie Finds

It’s no secret that I’m a self proclaimed foodie. And as I scour the aisles at my local grocery store or favorite market I am always coming across new-to-me products. Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite foodie finds with you!

First up is the all mighty Pro Bar. Introduced to me by Lora Hogan, she gave me this bar to try a few weeks back. I had it one day after a morning workout and holy wow…delish! Highly highly recommend these for a post workout snack. Lora also loves their energy chews!

I found this Clever Foodies Scramble in the egg section of my local Publix. I love eggs for breakfast and would love to add more veggies in them, but alas I tend to be lazy and just usually top them with salsa. This Scramble takes all the work out for you…just add a few tablespoons to your eggs and cook! Very very tasty. They have a greens version that I’m looking to try out next.

This is my new favorite sauce. I want to have it on everything. I found this at a local European market and decided to try it on chicken. I just baked chicken breasts topped with this Ajvar sauce and served with rice and green beans. So simple and SO yum! This would also be great on a meaty fish. I also want to try it with zucchini noodles.

Another foodie gift from Lora! She gave me one of these Naked smoothies to try since I’m a smoothie fanatic. I LOVE them. I’ve been having them post workout. Great balance of almond milk and berries.

Picked up this white wine at Total Wine and it’s my new fav. Light and crisp with a lot of flavor. Good luck on pronouncing it.

*Foodie tip: Whenever I like a wine I always make sure to snap a pic. Then I save it to a wine photo album on my phone. That way the next time I go to the store I can remember which ones I like!

This Big Spoon Chai Spice peanut butter was one of my finds when Locale in St. Pete first opened. So many amazing flavors playing wonderfully together here. If you love chai flavor you need to hunt this down.
