thingsthatwedo.com - taste of nature chocolate pecan brownie granola

You know I’m not much of a chocolate fan but I was intrigued by these Taste of Nature granola bars because they’re organic and non-GMO. They also happened to be on sale so it was a good excuse to test them out.

Questions in my head as I picked up the box – would they be too sweet, would they taste good, would they be worth the money I spent (even on sale)?

Well, let’s just see, shall we?

thingsthatwedo.com - neal brothers foods honey mustard pretzels

I have to admit, pretzel bites are pretty tasty. They’re crunchy and savoury (okay, a tad too salty) but tasty they are (with a giant glass of water to compensate). Move over potato chips, I’m in love with these bite size little pretzel bits. They’re crunchy and flavourful and you only need a little bit to feel happy and satisfied.

I was at my local grocery store and picked up this bag of Neal Brothers Foods Honey Mustard Pretzels. I’ve had other Neal Brothers Foods products before and wanted to see how these would fare compared to my usual preferred brand.

Any guesses?

Why?

Because I said so.

Who exactly is Nagi?

Well, Nagi happens to be an amazing woman who is the ultimate brain behind www.recipetineats.com. I discovered her website a little while back when I was in desperate need of a new breakfast option. Sure, I made French Toast, pancakes, oatmeal, bread pudding, and a few other choice items but it’s always good to try something new. Given that I’m not the best cook on this planet I was looking for something familiar yet new.

Enter Nagi and the pikelet.

thingsthatwedo.com - pacific-organic-pumpkin-puree-pumpkin-loaf

For the record, I love Pacific Food’s organic Pumpkin Puree. It is my absolute pumpkin puree. I discovered it at my local health food store. It was on sale and I decided to pick it up and try my hand at making my own pumpkin loaf. My entire family loves eating pumpkin loaf but I never dared to make it. I mean, pumpkin puree? I had no clue how to use it.

Armed with this box of Pacific Organic Pumpkin Puree, I tried it and made the best pumpkin loaf ever which I promise to share one day soon. For now, let me focus on this delectable pumpkin puree because quite frankly, it deserves the attention! - Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - lancetre organic le port royal cheese

Once upon a time, I used to think all cheeses were alike. See cheese on sale, buy cheese on sale. Eat cheese, enjoy cheese, yummy yummy in my tummy.

As it turns out, eating and enjoying food isn’t quite that simple or that easy. Over time, I learned to read labels and pay attention to the ingredients that went into my body. Sure, I don’t always choose the healthiest options but I’m at least more mindful of what gets consumed.

Then, one day, I discovered L’Ancetre cheese and I’ve been hooked ever since. Recently, L’Ancetre has come out with even more options for us conscious consumers. Check out their Le Port-Royal cheese, an organic cheese made with 50% less salt and a hit of garlic and parsley!

thingsthatwedo.com - sensible portions chia and quinoa pita crisps

This was a random buy. I was intrigued. Pita crisps? Chia and quinoa? Hm…The Sensible Portions Chia and Quinoa Pita Crisps looked promising. Non GMO, quinoa and chia seeds, no cholesterol or trans fats, the Sensible Portions Chia and Quinoa Pita Crisps seemed like an ideal school snack alternative.

thingsthatwedo.com - bolthouse-farms-berry-boost-smoothieSometimes, I wander the aisles in the grocery store. I have a few minutes to spare and I pick up different products to gander at their choice of ingredients. I read a few labels, I think, and I move on.

On this particular day, I picked up the bottle of Bolthouse Farms 100% Fruit juice smoothie. There are a variety of flavours. The one you see pictured here is their Berry Boost smoothie.

I take a good look at their bottle, the packaging, the words and then I start thinking. For starters, I never make smoothies at home. I just don’t. I’d rather eat the whole fruit. Occasionally, the family might pick up a smoothie while we’re out and about but really, they’re not part of our everyday repertoire.

Oh, I should apologize in advance: I took these photos while I was in the store. They’re not the best quality, wobbly handling and all. What can I say? - Continue Reading
