At a food show a few months ago, I tried- and loved - Earth Balance’s new Coconut Spread. It is now in stores, have you seen it?

I really enjoy coconut oil as a toast topping but this Coconut Spread is a great way to introduce coconut oil into your diet if you’ve been a little hesitant until now. It spreads just like butter and can be used in place of butter.

Like:

  • great coconut flavor
  • versitale: can use for baking, cooking, spreading and in place of butter
  • vegan, soy-free, gluten-free and non-GMO
  • all of the recipe ideas on their website (Coconut Spread Recipe Ideas)
  • comes packaged like other butter alternatives

Wish:

  • I have no wishes…that is a first! The only thing that I’m unsure about is that I’m not sure there is a need to have both coconut oil and coconut spread…

 

 

trader joes hummus dressing

review: trader joe’s hummus salad dressing

I feel like every time I visit Trader Joe’s, they’ve got some new, great product that I simply must try. When we lived in Minneapolis, Trader Joe’s was a little out of the way, so I didn’t go on a regular basis, but they are all over LA and I’ve been going on a very

review: somersault snacks

I’ve always resisted buying the somersault snacks that I’ve seen in various coffee shops. I have no idea why. I’ve picked them up, read the ingredients and always kind of thought they wouldn’t be very good. Thankfully for my sake, the lollihop package that I received last month had a bag of the sea salt

review: amande yogurt

Almond milk yogurt. Heard of it? Amande just recently launched their almond milk yogurt. I was pleasantly surprised to see this (and sample) at a recent food show, but also felt a tad frustrated with myself.  How could I have missed this? I scour the aisles at Whole Foods and the Coop! I feel that

review: kelapo coconut oil

I’m a huge fan of coconut oil. And it always helps when it is organic and fair trade like Kelapo. I have a little more work before I’ve completely convinced my Dad that it isn’t as bad as it might outwardly appear (he works in Cardiac Rehab and they really don’t take too kindly to those

review: organic bistro thai curry beef bowl

I’ve been a big fan of Helen’s Kitchen frozen tofu and meals when I find myself in a bind for lunch or don’t have the time to make and pack a lunch. Although beef is very rare for a lunch meal for me, I decided to try the Thai Style Red Curry with Beef Bowl

review: sun chlorella

You know I love my greens. Kale, amazing grass and now sun chlorella. Whats next? Your guess as is good as mine….but I’ll try it. I myself, was not really familiar with chlorella so I’ll fill you in a bit. Chlorella is a fresh-water strain of green algae. Appetizing, right? It is thought that sun
