Review: Marzetti Simply Dressed

We all know how much I like my salads.  My day is not complete unless I have a salad for lunch & dinner.  Seriously, I feel off without them.  It is a sure way to guarantee I get my veggies in, too!  I like to vary my salad dressings (and toppings) so that I [...]

Review: Peet’s Coffee

Love, love, love coffee!  I can’t start my day until a few things have happened.  First, run or hit the gym.  Second, shower.  Third, coffee.  Even when I was drinking decaf, I still craved that warm, brown liquid in my cup daily.  

Peet’s Coffee has 2 new medium roast coffees – Café Domingo [...]

Review: Trader Joe’s Fig Butter

Review: Erewhon Cereals

The market is full of gluten-free cereals these days.  This is a blessing for those of us having to follow a gluten-free diet.  I remember the days when there were very few options.  While some of those options were tasty, they got tiring.  It is nice to change things up every once in a [...]

Genius Bread Revisited

After I sampled & reviewed Glutino’s new Genius bread in July, I received another loaf & letter from the company asking me to give it another try. The sample they sent this time came from an ‘improved’ batch of bread. Okay, I am game. The bread was shipped frozen and had thawed by the [...]

Review: Mix 1 Strawberry Banana Protein Shake

As a runner I have learned the importance of properly fueling my body.  Skimping on calories & nutrients hurts performance and can hurt your body, too.  Carbohydrates are important to supply muscles with glycogen for exercise and a snack of protein & carbs is important after running to help refuel & repair muscles.  It [...]

Garden of Eatin’–Review & New Products for Summer 2011

Have you have the pleasure of trying Garden of Eatin’s blue corn tortilla chips?  If not, you are missing out.  These chips are some of my favorite for making nachos, dipping in guacamole or just eating alongside a taco salad.  They hold their crisp and don’t become soggy; they have just the right amount of [...]

Review: Ian’s Natural Foods Cookie Buttons & Wafer Bites

Ian’s Natural Foods has a wonderful variety of gluten-free (and allergen-free) products on the market. One of the hardest things about starting the gluten-free diet is being a kid and having to start the gluten-free diet. Kids are naturally picky eaters (or many of them are), so finding foods to replace the old standbys can [...]
