Come On Over, Cupcake!


A few weeks ago, the local supermarket put boxes of Pillsbury cake mix on sale, enticing shoppers with a price so low that even I, a girl with an avowed distaste for cakes from a box, couldn’t resist. I snapped up three boxes.
Two disappointing cupcake recipes later, I was ready to go in an entirely […]

Nogurt Does Yogurt, Free-From-Style


If I had to pick the biggest dairy-free food buzz for 2008, it would be yogurt.  That tummy taming food was in the media more times last year than Paris Hilton, and milk-free manufacturers have been working hard to come out with options for those who are milk allergic, lactose challenged, or otherwise adverse to […]

Review: Weight Watchers Breakfast Quesadilla


So since you now know that I am a grab-and-go sorta gal when it comes to breakfast, it should be no surprise that I’m slowly working my way through the Weight Watchers line of frozen breakfast selections. Today? It’s all about their Breakfast Quesadilla. With only 4 Weight Watchers points and 220 […]

Healthier Ways Come to Starbucks?


It’s fall, and as always Starbucks has a few new treats. Sometimes it’s hard to get up and actually make breakfast, even if it is a smoothie. Can Starbucks new offerings help us pick up the slack in our mornings?
Before the fall menu, they added the Vivanno smoothies. There are two flavors, both made with […]

Easy Raw Recipes to Supercharge Your Day


One would think that raw food, essentially food in its most simplistic form, would be so incredibly simple to make. Yet, for some reason the very idea of eating raw just sounds so darn complicated. Soaking nuts for hours and even days, purchasing pricey juicers, slowly dehydrating fruits and veggies … who has the […]

Berry, Berry Crunchy


As I awoke, groggy … with blurry eyes, the only part of my body that seemed to be wide-awake was my stomach, grumbling away. I entered the kitchen and even through my narrow squint, it was impossible to miss the bright and cheerful box of the new FlaxPlus Red Berry Crunch cereal from Nature’s […]

How I Learned to Like Breakfast


Like a lot of women (and men too probably), when I was in college, I could eat whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. I’d skip breakfast, have a bacon cheeseburger (with fries) or a personal pizza for lunch around 2 and eat whatever came to mind sometime around 6 for dinner. My calorie and fat […]

Strong Bones, Thinking Outside of the Carton


All too often we are blind-sided by the media, led to believe that one food, one product, one vitamin or mineral is the answer to our very health and existence. In reality, our bodies are quite complex, requiring a healthy lifestyle and various nutrients to operate optimally. Yes, it is true that people who are […]

Raiding the Larabar Cookie Jar


After trying three “pie-style” Larabars, out of shear coincidence, I moved onto the cookie side of dessert.
Really, I don’t know how I kept myself from trialling the Ginger Snap Larabar before the “pie” selections. With a passion for potent spices, I can easily say that ginger snaps are tops on my cookie list. […]

Have a Slice of Larabar


Recently, I picked up some Clif Nectar bars when a great sale hit.  I loved them, and felt better after eating an all fruit and nut snack than a typical wheat- and soy-based energy bar.  I had heard that Larabars were quite similar, so naturally I jumped at the chance to try out a few […]
