Nov 30, 2017 - pc matcha green tea cheesecake

Have you ever seen this product on the shelf before? Matcha green tea cheesecake?

Huh? What?

This came to me courtesy of my adorable neighbour who regularly shares goodies with me. One time she made this delectable kale and quinoa salad – I ate the entire bowl for breakfast, no joke! I totally have to try and make some one day.

Anyhoo, I get a text from one fine evening and she shares this PC Matcha Green Tea cheesecake with me. Curious, I decided to take a slice. A closer look at the box told me this cheesecake also came with a coconut and cookie crumb crust. I like coconut so I was really hoping this would be a tasty treat. – Continue Reading

Apr 25, 2017 - 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!

Sep 12, 2016 - l'ancetre organic applewood smoked cheddar

Confession: I do love cheese. Cheese doesn’t always love me but I do love cheese (well, most cheeses. I still haven’t figured out brie yet). L’Ancetre however, is one company that never ceases to amaze me.

I’ve had the pleasure of testing out quite a few of the L’Ancetre cheeses and they never disappoint. However, I have to say, the L’Ancetre organic applewood double smoked cheddar is one of my favourites. So much flavour, so much personality, and so much really good quality cheese.

Jun 30, 2016 - the laughing cow party cubes

I occasionally like to try new things. It really depends on my mood. Some days, I’m a bit more adventurous. Other days, I go with the same old, same old. I’m also incredibly lazy (or as I like to call it, I’m efficiently lazy. Translation: I move lightning fast to get tasks done so I have more time to do nothing). Being incredibly lazy means I’m not always up for the effort of trying something new.

Well, today, I decided to try something new: Laughing Cow Party Cubes. – Continue Reading

Mar 26, 2016 - l'ancetre organic half salt cheddar cheese

Am I picky about my food? I don’t think so. Certainly, there are some foods that I just can’t eat. Spicy foods are a no-go for me and I prefer not to eat foods from a tin can but for the most part, I’d like to think I’m pretty easy going (granted, I’m not overly adventurous but still…).

I also happen to be a big cheese lover but I’ve come to realize that not all cheeses are equal. I mean, there’s cheese and then there are all the cheeses made by the amazing folks at L’Ancetre. In the past, I was fortunate enough to test out some of their cheeses and just recently, they reached out and I learned about their organic half salt cheddar cheese. With 85mg of sodium in 30g of cheese, this L’Ancetre Le St-Grégoire organic half salt cheddar cheese is significantly lower in sodium than a lot of the cheeses out on the marketplace. - l'ancetre organic half salt cheddar cheese

Well, what can I say? L’Ancetre never ceases to amaze me. – Continue Reading

Apr 24, 2015 - astro original natural yogurt

I could end this review with those words and I’d be happy. I haven’t posted about yogurt in a very long time because quite frankly, dairy doesn’t seem to be agreeing with our family lately. We love dairy but dairy doesn’t always love us. Yet there I was at the grocery store and I just couldn’t leave this carton of Astro Original Natural Yogourt there. Individual containers with all the flavours that would make my palette sing, Vanilla Cream, Lemon Meringue, Key Lime, Coconut Cream, how could I NOT take it home with me? – Continue Reading

Aug 27, 2014 - organic meadow low fat pressed cottage cheeseCopyright© 2014 All Rights Reserved.

My big kid is a big fan of cottage cheese. She’s liked it ever since she was a wee one. She’ll happily eat individual cups of cottage cheese, plain if you please.

Now, I know regular cottage cheese probably isn’t made as well as it could be so I’ve been looking for a better alternative and I was ecstatic to find the Organic Meadow Low Fat Pressed Cottage Cheese. I figured this would be the perfect replacement.

Yeah…about that. – Continue Reading

Jul 19, 2014 - pc mini greek yogurt smoothie barCopyright© 2014 All Rights Reserved.

Nothing beats a free sample to test out a new product. I was at my local Loblaws one fine day and there they were, handing out these little PC Blue Menu Power Fruit Mini Greek Yogurt Smoothie Bars. It was hot out and hey, how can I pass up a free sample that comes in a smoothie bar? My big kid and I each got a sample to try. I have to tell you, I was particularly intrigued by the yogurt granola coating. I really really hope it’s nice and crunchy! – Continue Reading

Jun 14, 2014 - iogo lemon lime greek yogurtCopyright© 2014 All Rights Reserved.

My daughter loves all things lemon and lime. Water with lemon? Check! Water with lime? Check! Lemon sorbet? Check! Plain ol’ lemon? Check! Plain ol’ lime? Check (she took a bite out of a lime wedge at a restaurant yesterday, then shivered at how sour it was, but it didn’t seem to faze her one bit!).

IOGO lemon lime greek yogurt? That I’m not so sure about.

Product Review: What ingredients are in the IOGO lemon lime Greek yogurt?
