Woot woot! It's April Fools Day! I had yesterday off work. Anyone know why? If you guessed Cesar Chavez Day, you are correct! It is the one day in the year that my husband and I both have off and kids are in school. So we usually plan a day date but this year, I chose to volunteer in my kids' school because I never get to do that!
I am here to tell you about 6 products I love and 1 not so much!
Yes, Belicious is another food in a pouch company. But it isn't like all the other ones. It is 100% organic and not sweet. It is actually food with fiber and grains. It tastes like really thick soup. Each pouch of belicious contains (the WHOLE food, not just the juice), , and . In addition, this nutrient packed snack is a great source of fiber, as well as lots of important vitamins and minerals. It is shelf stable for 12 months and only contains lemon juice as a preservative.
2. Chobani Mighty Oats
It is just like any greek yogurt but with raisins, oats, pumpkin seeds and more. Delish! And with 10g of protein, up to 10g of whole grains and as much dietary fiber as a packet of instant oatmeal, there’s a hearty gluten-free breakfast in every cup.
3. Enjoy Life Snickerdoodles
I had the JOY of discovering this gluten free brand at the Gluten Free Allergy expo I went to last month. I miss cookies now that I am GF. But these? You can't even tell. They taste like ginger molasses cookies and are soft and chewy. And 100% delicious! I need to run out and buy another box! Even my non- GF family fought me for the last one! I buy mine at Sprouts.
4. Burger Bench Diablo Burger (salad style)
On Easter Sunday, we tried out a new place with our friends in Escondido, CA. Escondido is about 30 miles North of San Diego proper. Their Diablo burger was AMAZE! A patty of chorizo on top of a patty of beef, grilled peppers, cream cheese, cheddar, arugula, tomato, jalapenos, house chipotle aioli in a lettuce bowl. And trifle parmesan fries on the side. YUMMMMMMM!!!! I totally recommend it if you enjoy a good burger! (Sarah, if you are reading this, let's meet there with our people!)
5. Better Buzz Honey Latte
I have written about this before and I am sorry but I have to tell you about it again. It is delicious. I doesn't taste like burnt espresso like some coffee places I won't mention. It is smooth with a subtle honey flavor. You need this coffee in your life. They have tons of locations including Point Loma, Encinitas and Pacific Beach. Another reason San Diego rocks!
6. Califia Farms Dirty Chai Cold Brew Coffee
This one is another good coffee and is available at Target. No dairy but tastes like a chai latte with the caffeine kick of a cold brew coffee. It is awesome to grab on the go. It felt like I was getting a fancy coffee drink and in fact, I poured it into a glass and drank it with a straw. I am all fancy like that!
Okay, so I don't bore you to death with all the things I loved, I will share with you one thing form the week I didn't love. I promised Jenn I would!
Sweet Erica sent me a care package last week and it contained this gum. I chewed it but then couldn't hang on. It is SUPER bitter and tastes like caffeine without the fun of coffee. It wasn't for me but it may still be for you. You have to try everything at least once right?
