We’re heading down to Savannah tomorrow night for a weekend of Debutante Parties, wedding planning, a bridal shower, and hopefully some time in the sun. We’re both so excited about the trip and the mini 4 day break from work but that also means squeezing a TON of work into three days since a lot of people are taking next week off due to the holiday. I just walked in the door a few minutes ago and dinner just consisted of a banana, some leftover vegetables we prepared asian style last night, and a bit of Artisana Coconut Butter.
1) ARTISANA COCONUT BUTTER is the first thing i’m loving right now! HOLY YUM!! My awesome nutritionist gave me a few of these samples and i’m in love. I’ve mixed this one into morning oats, enjoyed on a banana like I did tonight, and even eaten plain. The best thing is the portion control. I’ve enjoyed this lil jar six or seven times so far and the ENTIRE jar is only 93 calories and 9 grams of fat according to the label. I would love more of these sample jars so I may review the whole line in case anyone from Artisana is reading this! 🙂
I still can’t believe it. My fiance has a new addiction and it’s 100% healthy and something i’ve been trying to introduce to him for over a year. His $1.99 a day addiction is Fage 0% Plain. Since cutting back on caffeine, artificial foods, and processed foods over the last week he realized he wanted something delicious and protein rich for a mid morning snack or afternoon treat. He has one of these bad boys each day mixed with 1 packet of stevia and some fresh berries. I can’t believe this guy is my fiance! His favorite things about Fage are its’ dense, rich, and creamy texture. He didn’t believe that it was healthy or low fat until he looked at the label because it tasted more like cream. Furthermore, it makes a great afternoon or morning snack due to its high protein content. I’ve started enjoying this for a breakfast alternative with ground flax seeds, berries, and stevia.
This weekend we decided to try Fage in some other ways such as a mayonaise alternative in tuna and chicken salads or as sour cream in Mexican dishes. Sunday we decided to test it with a healthier version of tuna salad.
