The “Other” Other White Meat

Reviews By May 31, 2018 Tags: , , , , No Comments

A couple of years ago I did aΒ post about the term “foodie.” What it meant to me, how other people see it, etc. I almost feel like it’s a bit archaic these days, as more and more people are becoming more and more exposed to different foods. I don’t really consider myself a foodie, just a food lover. And I believe that part of that relationship that I have with food centers on me being open to trying new things. So recently I decided it was time for me to delve into the wild world of jackfruit. I have heard so much about it, in particular that it is a common meat substitute for many vegans. So I wanted to share my experience this week for those of you who have never had it (or possibly even heard of it), and maybe hear from those of you who do eat it and your thoughts on it.Trader Joe's Jackfruit.


On A Roll with Rice

Sometimes, in my ongoing quest to seek out and sample new snacks and whatever else they’re throwing out these days, I will see some form of advertising for said products. Whether on social platforms, TV or old school store signage, I usually see it coming. And then, sometimes, I get completely blind-sided; I’ll just be walking down an aisle at my local supermarket, and there it will be, an item I haveΒ neverΒ even heard of, let alone seen. And then I’m like a hunting dog on the scent – good luck trying to tear me away from this undiscovered edible artifact. That’s what happened with the Crunchy Rollers rolled rice snacks. So here’s what I uncovered about them…Crunchy Rollers Rice Snacks.


The “Skinny” on Something Sweet

I think one of the greatest struggles we all face – as far as our diets are concerned – is balance. Being able to enjoy the foods we love while trying to be healthy can be a daily issue. And for those who may be on a more restrictive budget, eating well is often a compromise, as the cost of eating healthier is much higher than that of loading the junk food into their carts. I recently picked up a dessert from one of my favorite brands, Skinny Cow, and it got me thinking about the idea of balancing diets.The Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Bars


Jason’s Deli – A New Classic?

Kentucky, Reviews By November 9, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

So at the end of last month I mentioned that there was a new spot opening in Lexington, and that I would be talking about it again in the future. Well, the future is now, and I recently made a trip to the brand new restaurant that is looking to put a bit of an updated, and somewhat healthier, spin on the classic deli.Exterior of Jason's Deli

Hello again! Time keeps marching on, and the weather in my neck of the woods is finally catching up to the calendar, so it’s not quite so hard to convince myself that it is in fact fall. Thank goodness I can finally pull out all those sweaters and boots I’ve been dying to wear for weeks now. So it’s monthly review time again, and here are a few bits and bobs that have not escaped my attention…
