One of my favorite pastimes is scouring the grocery store and finding new items to eat. I love food, and I love trying new things! So here is what I am currently loving in the kitchen (and in my belly!)
Totally obsessed with this nutella doughnut from Dough . I mean how could I not be??? Don’t the pictures say it all? No need to explain what it is or how delicious it is. Nutella mentions two posts in a row !
Cooked in small batches, this cereal is ready to eat just from the packet — either as is, or heated up. It is similar to oatmeal or cream of wheat (my favorite breakfast / lunch / dinner growing up!), except that it has more protein. It is made with whole grain quinoa, light coconut milk, real fruit and natural sweeteners. I like to eat it for breakfast, as my snack before a run, or as an afternoon pick me up. It is easy to prepare (you just have to rip the top off), and delicious. Plus it comes in four different flavors: Banana Cinnamon, Wild Blueberry, Orange Cranberry, and Honey Almond. All delicious.
Made from scratch in Vermont, this meat stick is great to snack on. It is a turkey stick, full of protein and big flavor. I like to have it in my purse so wherever I go, I have something to eat (otherwise, I get severely hungry). This specific flavor is made of ground Ancho chilis, so it is like eating a turkey burrito stick with extra salsa! A good combination for this half mexican chick! And yes it is made with humanely grown turkey – no antibiotics, sodium nitrite, nitrites, gluten, nuts, or milk. Just pure old meat.
I have read about this yogurt on various health blogs over the past couple of years, but it is difficult to find. Finally, I found it at Health Nuts near my house (favorite health food store in NYC!). This coconut yogurt is rich, decadent, filling, and oh so good. I add honey or jam and call it my dessert. (Well after eating my doughnut of course) It is packed with flavor, probiotics, and healthy fat. It is a vegan treat like no other!
So there you have it, my current loves in the kitchen. What are you loving to eat / drink / indulge in these days! Do share! And have a great week! Let’s hope that the East Coast is DONE WITH THE DAMN SNOW AND COLD. I am *soooo* over it. Sigh.
