Always good to try something new

Hi there!  I can’t believe it’s 65 degrees in February.  The weather here has been unbelievable for this time of year.  Great for running!

I thought it would be fun to show you some new food products I’ve tried recently.  Let’s get started!

Gaia Golden Milk

This nourishing golden milk powder contains turmeric and several other herbs.  Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory benefits and it also offers antioxidant support.  I enjoy drinking something warm while winding down in the evening and thought golden milk would be a good option.  I mix 1 tsp with a cup of warmed unsweetened vanilla almond milk.  It’s creamy and has a spicy flavor.  Very delicious.

PB fit powdered peanut butter.

I love peanut butter.  Actually, I love all nut and seed butters.  But they are very calorie dense.  If you eat them multiple times a day, that can add up quickly!  I found this PB fit at the grocery store and thought I’d give it a try.  (I tried PB2 in the past, but didn’t care for it) I mix 2 tablespoons of PBfit with 1 tablespoon of water. You can add more or less water to get your desired consistency.

Love Grown Chocolate Power O’s.

I tried the original Power O’s a few years ago and did not care for them.  I liked the idea of a cereal being made with beans, as most cereals aren’t made with the healthiest ingredients.   I happened to find the chocolate variety on clearance ($1.99!) and decided to give it a try.  It’s pretty tasty.  While 9 grams of sugar per serving is kind of high, I figured for a sweet treat it’s not so bad.

truRoots Organic Just Green Pea Fusilli

I don’t eat a lot of pasta.  Although, my husband and girls like spaghetti and lasagna so it’s definitely a staple in our pantry.   I was making a soup recipe that called for any whole grain or gluten free pasta and I thought this might be good option.  The nutritional profile is great and it only has one ingredient.   The pasta doesn’t have a strong pea flavor, so If you don’t like peas you still might want to give it a try.  It worked out great in the soup.

McCafe Hazelnut k-cups.

When buying coffee, I always look to see what is on sale before making a selection.  Green Mountain and Starbucks are my standard brands, but this was on sale so I went with it.  These k-cups are so good!  The coffee has such a rich hazelnut taste.  I was pleasantly surprised!

Have you tried any of these products?

Is there anything new you’re loving lately?
