I hereby proclaim Fridays on the blog as “Foodie Fridays.” Foodie Fridays will be devoted to sharing some of my favorite foodie items. This includes snacks, recipes, new items, beverages and restaurant reviews!
Let’s get this party started with one of my most favorite rediscoveries.
Foodie Item #1: About a year ago I became obsessed with Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butters. For some reason I stopped buying their peanut butters for a while, but recently went back and got this beauty –
Yes, you want to try this. The nutrition stats are on the website, but a serving is about 160 calories with 6 grams of protein and 9 grams of sugar. All PB & Co. products are free of high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils. So there all natural – naturally heavenly.
Foodie Item #2: Paul Newman, how I love thee. Newman’s Own Organics has these little beauties called Champion Chip Cookies. I recently bought a bag of the chocolate chocolate chip version. These are sweet and rich and the perfect “something sweet,” after lunch or dinner. Yummmmmy. The stats on these guys aren’t terrible either. Four cookies offers up 160 calories and 11 grams of sugar, so you’re blood sugar won’t go into crisis mode. They’re definitely not a “diet” cookie by any means, but sometimes most of the time, the real thing is just better.
Food item #3: This next item is actually a beverage. This one is not for the kiddies guys. Let me tell you about Rag Apple Lassie Cabernet Sauvignon. I tell you what, those folks in the Yadkin Valley (NC) really know what’s up. This stuff is the jam! That’s right – the jam. This cab is smooth and rich, you can definitely taste plum in this guy. My mouth is watering right now thinking about it. In my opinion, this is actually a pretty good summer red. I know Cab’s generally have a heavier reputation, but trust me on this one. It’s certainly not cheap, but worth the splurge for a special occasion, like a Wednesday night. I haven’t seen this in the grocery store, but our local wine shop carries it, so check your and don’t give up until yours find it. Today. Run! Hurry!
