A few of my favorite new things!

These are out of this world!
yummy kale!
this is such a fantastic butter replacement


eye opening
 So I have been trying some new things since I started eating more veggie.I thought I would tell you about a few:
    Gardein Marinara meat free chicken- sounds weird but,these are so good.They are super fast to make.They have worked in a pinch because John has been having separate meat meals.I think they would be pricey for a family,you get two in a bag for around $5.So $2.50 a piece.It was very filling for one.I would buy these again in a heartbeat.They have so many other products and I am looking forward to trying them all.They have a fabulous website if you want to check it out.

    Kale-I never had this vegetable before and it is easily going to become a staple.("Kale,it's the new spinach" that's from my favorite show Modern's gone into my stuffed peppers and my spaghetti a couple of times and I want to make Kale chips.Vegetarian times has a recipe I want to try.I will try it this week and let you know how it goes.Josh and I can make it together.

  Earth Balance butter-you would never know that this is not butter.Its soy oil and canola oil.It tastes just like the real thing.It supports healthy cholesterol levels,it's rich in Omega 3's,free of GMO's,hydrogenated oils and no artificial ingredients.It spreads really well,you can bake,cook,fry and saute with it.Seriously it's so good.

  David's Tea toasted Almond-I did discover this in the winter but, I had to put it in.As far as green tea goes it's the bomb!! I am TRYING to get rid of coffee and this has been a great substitute.

  Food Inc- I just watched it last week.It just made what I am trying more solid.Now it is American but,our Canadian meat is 95% factory farmed.Chemically what we are consuming is scary.Just putting it in here if you want to check it out for yourself.

   So these are a few of my favorite things I am really happy with right now.Hopefully you see them and want to try.Anyone out there doing something fun with kale? I am getting my book that I have been waiting for from the library today.The China Study it is highly recommended on alot of the sites.Former President Bill Clinton talks about the author when he was interviewed for his plant based diet.I am so excited.


  1. I made kale chips in the oven and they were delicious. Seasoned with garlic, sesame seeds and Bragg's and slowly cooked them. Watch them closely as they can burn quickly!
    Have fun!

  2. Tracy I am so trying those.I love Bragg's!!What temperture on the oven?
