Halo Top Ice Cream. I received a press email about this ice cream and went out to find it shortly after. The email boasted an ice cream that tasted like the full-fat variety all while being low-calorie and high protein (70 calories and 7 grams of protein per serving). It doesn’t taste exactly like real ice cream…but is pretty tasty!

Paleo Bread by Julian Bakery. I had previously tried the coconut variety, but I love the almond one. The nutrition facts are a little insane: 60 calories, 5 grams fiber and 7 grams of protein per slice!

Secret Squirrel Iced Coffee Concentrate. I’ve been loving cold-brew coffee and I know I should make my own but I like to support the economy. ;)


Maldon Sea Salt Flakes. There is truly something magical about this salt. I was introduced to it while house-sitting for my cousins and I picked some up before we left their house. It’s so good, and you kind of feel like a Chef, sprinkling salt flakes over food. :)

Chobani Flips. Chobani sent me a few to try and while I definitely prefer plain greek yogurt, you can’t go wrong with Key Lime Crumble. I’m most interested in the Blueberry Power, which is blueberry yogurt topped with chia seeds, hemp seeds and walnuts.

Ghee. I go back and forth using ghee and then not. I’m in an ‘on’ phase and so obsessed. I just saw they started selling it at Trader Joe’s, anyone tried it yet?

Straw Propeller Muesli’s. Straw Propeller  makes convenient, portable oatmeals and muesli’s in a wide range of flavors (like pumpkin pie, banana bread, curry up (YES, CURRY!), and peanut butter apple) and sent me a few varieties to try. A lot of them have added sugar which is a no-no for me, but the original muesli was a great mix of oats, buckwheat groats, raisins, dates, pumpkin seeds, walnuts and flax seed meal. (And the bite of Apple Crisp Oatmeal that I had? Delicious!)

Have you tried any great products lately?

    I have heard a lot about ghee and see it in recipes. I will have to look for it at TJ’s. I have never tried it before!

    Yum – I would love to try the Paleo Bread!

    I’ve recently been into apple butter. I think I’m just craving fall and the apple butter with cinnamon is satisfying the craving :)

    OMG I love the Chobani Flips and the key lime one is also my fave. I also like the Blueberry Power one, but there is something about it that weirds me out.

    From what I understand, Ghee is high in saturated fat just like butter. It can be heated at a higher temperature so it’s good for frying and sauteeing. It’s more concentrated, so it has more calories per teaspoon! I did a bit of research on Ghee for a client!

      Yes, it is clarified butter!

    Did you see that Trader Joe’s also started selling coffee concentrate? (At least mine did here in Chicago) Just throwin’ that out there. :)

      I did! I have not heard good things…but would be curious to know what you think if you try it!

    I’ve been seeing a lot of bottled cold brew coffee lately. I need to get around to trying one. I make it at home, but it is never quite as good as a concentrate. I also looked all over for sea salt flakes when I was wanting to make citrus salt. Glad to know of this one!

    I’ve been wanting to try Julian’s, but just haven’t ordered it yet. I did, however, find my new favorite while in Whistler… it’s called GluteNull and is hands-down the best GF bread I’ve tried. The brown rice bread only has six ingredients and toasts up great. Unfortunately, it’s only available in BC and Seattle. Boo.

    Picking up ghee next time I’m at TJ’s!
