Is it as good as a real ice cream? Not so much. But it is low in calories and high in protein, and thus I do not feel bad about eating the whole carton myself. Plus it is filling! Lets face it... we all want something fun and not 100% healthy in our lives. This is my compromise. It woudl be my compromise more often were it less expensive.
My guilty pleasure. Is it full of fake flavorings? Yes! Is it tasty? Yes! Would I serve it to snooty foodie people? No. Is it hiding in the back of my pantry out of sight? Yes! Would I drink it when I want comfort? Yes!
I am a foodie, and tea and chocolate snob. This is not something I'd say is ever particularly good for you or anything like that. It is perhaps an acquired taste. But then this is what makes it a guilty pleasure.
There are many brands that offer the regular peanuts: dry roasted, perhaps salted and honestly often overroasted and not tasty. These are oily, have the skin on them (which I love) and tasty. I use the regular dry roasted peanuts to add to asian noodle or dipping recipes. But if it comes to snacking, these are the ones I reach for.
For a while, my husband couldn't have any dairy products due to the high level of phosphorus in these foods. Yet I wanted to make creamy sauces, frittatas and quiches. So I tried Almond Milk. does it taste like milk by itself? definitely not! But as a milk substitute in such recipes it worked great!
I find that a lot of pretzels in america are overbaked. The butter style from snyder is typically not. Now in my experience people think of pretzels when they want somethign very salty. This isn't it. Ont he other hand if you want a carb based not too salty snack, this is wonderful.
This is the best cracker to compliment many cheeses. The salt level is good and not too much, while the cracked pepper wakes up cheeses and cured meats. Of course they also go with canned chicken or tuna for a quick cheap lunch. They are a staple in my pantry.
I love quest brands taste and texture compared to most other protein bars. The white chocolate raspberry is my favorite flavor. I mostly find all quest bars a tad too sweet but this is my favorite desert combination so it works for me when i want something sweet. If I am craving something savory, this obviously doesn't work.
Women in my family get gray hair in college! I dye my hair all the time, and keeping the colour in and my hair healthy is a priority for me. I love using this mask -- it makes my hair feel and look moisturized and amazing, and it does not destroy my hair colour. Room for improvement? The price...
