I am always on the look out for new, healthy, gluten-free foods and drinks. I may find some of my new finds when I am out shopping or I may see them on one of the many blogs that I read or I may find out about them through one of my social networking sites. I have found many new things that I like this way -things I may not have tried in the past. The 2 most recent finds are San-J Thai Peanut Mildly Spicy Marinade & Dipping Sauce and La Croix flavored sparkling water.
The San-J Thai Peanut Sauce is labeled “gluten-free”. That is what first attracted me to the bottle. The ingredients are “Kim friendly”, which you should know if you read my blog, that it is not only gluten-free, but onion free as well. This sauce has a great flavor! It does have a little kick to it, but nothing ridiculous like my beloved Sriracha. I have used it to marinate my chicken in and then grill. I have used it to dip my Spring Rolls in (Pei Wei Vietnamese Chicken Salad Rolls). Anytime I want a little kick, I bring this sauce out. A++++ from me.
I have seen the La Croix Sparkling Water all over blog land and have wanted to try it. First step was to make sure the “natural flavors” that are in the water are gluten-free. Yes, they are gluten-free. I found the La Croix on sale at Target for $3/8-pack and got 1 lime & 1 cran-raspberry pack. What a nice treat these are! Cool, crisp & refreshing and a nice change from water. These contain no calories, sweeteners of any kind or sodium. I drink a ton of water, so it is nice to have once of these with lunch to mix things up a bit. Another A+++++ from me!
Anyone out there Twitter? Twitter is still rather new to me, but I am slowly learning. I feel really old when trying to learn all this new stuff!! LOL! If you want, follow me on Twitter!
I have a new article up on the Examiner, so check it out if you have a chance!
Have a nice Saturday night!
