Halfpops. You know the best part of popcorn, the kernels that aren’t completely popped? These are a whole bag of precisely that. They are made in Seattle and have beautiful packaging, are certified gluten-free and all-natural.

FlapJacked Protein Pancakes. I actually won a giveaway from She Rocks Fitness and so I was sent them to try…big fan! The nutrition stats are great (200 calories, 17 grams protein, 7 grams fiber), the flavor is great and the ingredients are real.

Sea Salt & Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds. These aren’t anything new, but I picked them up a few weeks ago from Trader Joe’s and they make the perfect dessert/treat at night. Almonds covered in chocolate are still healthy, right? ;)

Nuttzo Nut Butters. I was sent some Nuttzo to try out and I love the ingredient list and nut variety that they use and of course the added benefits that flaxseed adds. (The flax is cracked so you can reap the omega-3 benefits!)

Blue Bottle Coffee. I picked some up at the airport in San¬†Francisco¬†and totally understand the hype. It’s delicious. Garden Lites Pizza Souffle. This egg and vegetable “souffle” is found in the freezer section and contains 2 servings of vegetables, 12 grams of protein and 200 calories. It was SO good! It was a bit pricey, but nice to have for a rushed morning.

Quest Protein Bars. I was really skeptical of these…but I’ve seen them raved about all over online and while I was at GNC picking a few up, the guy working assured me they were really good. Oddly enough, they are so much better when microwaved for a bit. Dare I say it was the closest non-cookie dough-tasting cookie dough product out there? They are low-carb, gluten-free, high-protein and boast a pretty simple ingredient list. (Can only be purchased online and at GNC.)

TaDah Falafel Wraps. Wow. Just go find these in the frozen section! I’m still dreaming about this wrap. This wrap had 17 grams of protein and all recognizable ingredients. (This variety is also vegan, others have feta.)

Even though fruit seasons get blurry because you can find whatever fruit you are looking for all the time, if there was a quintessential summer fruit, in my mind it would be strawberries. I have fond memories of spending hot summer afternoons picking strawberries and bringing home flats of the delightfully juicy (non-organic) berries. We

I’m currently a little obsessed with Gwyneth Paltrow’s new book It’s All Good. I’ve paged through it about 4-5 times so far. The recipes are great, the pictures are beautiful and she’s not bad to look at either. I’m also coming off of a weekend in Vegas, a few days of being sick and eating

Hi! Long time, no daily eats posts. (3 months actually!) I hope you all had a great Super Bowl (if you celebrate). I tried to catch most of the commercials and ate artichokes, chips with salsa and queso and chicken fingers. (I have no idea…but they sounded SO good!) I sipped on some wine with

My food from Tuesday might go down in history as the ugliest day of food. EVER! You’ve been warned… Oh, and apparently I shop at Trader Joe’s a lot. Workout: 45 minute spin class. Beverage: coffee + 1/2 & 1/2. (And a side of man with sword…the sword was NOT a Halloween prop). Breakfast: Banana

I’ve decided that I need to start making breakfast for dinner more often. There are a lot of things to love about breakfasts for dinner. In my world, that would mean eggs. These huevos rancheros are great: flavorful, filling and so budget friendly. There are many varieties of huevos rancheros, with some more difficult than

What a wonderful day yesterday was – I had the day off in observance of Yom Kippur. Even though I’m not Jewish, the organization that I work for is and I’m fortunate enough to get a few extra days off this fall. It was so nice to have a slower day to catch up on
