This is a decent sweetener that, in my opinion tastes similar to others. It's not as sweet as sugar, but is a good alternative. I tried it on fruit and in tea. What differentiates this product from others are several other things. Its zero calorie, gluten free and non gmo verified. This is also my first exposure to monk fruit. However, I have used stevia before and find the combination very similar. If you like stevia, I think you will be happy with this product. I would definitely recommend it and may very well purchase it in the future myself.
I recently tried tofu for the first time and was pleasantly surprised by it. This product was marinated in teriyaki. I used it to substitute for meat in a stir fry and thought it was very good. Its reasonably priced and definitely makes you feel like there is meat present. I like using this in small pieces. Tofu does require a bit of preparation, be its not hard to use at all and is very versatile. I would definitely try it again and recommend it to others
I had never eaten tofu before and, honestly, expected to just hate it. As soon as I got this item home, I went online for information on how to use it. I'm so glad I did. I had no idea tofu needs to be pressed. It got rid of a lot of the funky water in the product. After pressing it, I tasted it and found that it is super bland. I also tried a little bit shredded into a salad. It gives the salad a little more depth and makes it a bit more filling. The tofu does take some flavor from the dressing and other ingredients, so this is not a terrible application. Lastly, I found a recipe for baked BBQ tofu. I cooked the rest of it this way and it wasn't terrible. It did remind me of meat. I don't think its as firm as meat and the texture is definitely still a little off, but its not terrible. I would try it again. Its such a versatile ingredient that I think almost anyone could find a way to use it. I got this package on sale for $2 per package so the price is reasonable. It does require some time and preparation, so please be ready for that. You do not take it out of the package and use it immediately.
I recently tried the Advant Edge carb control shake in Chocolate Fudge. I didn't know what to expect as sometimes this type of drink isn't the best. I tried it as an afternoon snack and was pleasantly surprised. The taste is not bad at all. Not exactly like a milkshake, but not medicine either. I could drink this on a regular basis and be happy about it. It has a thickness similar to milk and is somewhat filling. It has low calories, carbs and sugar, but a good amount of protein. My Mom is diabetic and I recommended this to her. Not a bad a product at all.
This is my new favorite Olay body wash. It leaves you feeling nice and clean, and your skin smooth and soft. The scent is not overwhelming on this product like on some, but, instead, is light and refreshing. I will purchase it again and would recommend it to others.
I want to tell you a bit about my experience with the vanilla International Delight latte product. This product is found in the dairy section and comes in three flavors: caramel , mocha and vanilla. We decided to give the vanilla a try first. It is super easy to use. We made a cup of our regular coffee, shook the latte bottle and simply squirted the product onto the top of the coffee. It adds a creaminess to the coffee, which I enjoy, and accentuates the coffee flavor rather than really taking over. My husband and myself both enjoyed it and may very well buy it from time to time. The bottle is almost $4. If you drank several cups of coffee per day and used this each time, it could get pricey. However, it's still much cheaper than going to the coffee shop. I would recommend you give it a try.
I love the rollerballs because they are so easy and convenient. I keep this one in my bag in case I'm in the hurry in the morning or because I need to freshen up. It rolls well and i do like the graphics on the box. Pink perfume is pretty too. However, you have to be very careful with this scent. It does have a sweetness to it and, if you get too much, it can be a bit overwhelming. I like a very light scent so I have to be careful not to go overboard when using this one.
Jell-O® Simply Good Vanilla Bean Instant Pudding Mix is a great sweet and quick snack. It doesn't have all the calories or fat of candy or pastries, but quenches a sweet tooth. The product is very easy to make. You simply mix with mix (non-dairy does not work and 2% is recommended) and then let sit for minutes. Perfect soft serve pudding is the result. I did not put this product in the refrigerator so I have no idea how that might impact results. It makes a good portion, enough that my husband and I split it. We enjoyed it. I have to say the taste is very vanilla bean. The flavor is a bit stronger than ordinary vanilla, so be prepared. I would definitely recommend and will probably buy again.
We really like Ikea. The closest one is about 100 miles from here, so we make it a day trip and do some other things in the area as well, maybe every couple months. Their kitchenware is great. I have several pieces. Its affordable and durable. They have a great variety of products. Furniture, picture frames, sheets, rugs, etc. I like to shop their clearance sections. Sometimes you can get some really great deals. Their restaurant is ok. Convenient. However, if you are a big eater, you probably will not get enough. Great store though. Highly recommend it.
