There are some things in life that just need to be shared.
And some things that just shouldn’t be.
And than there are those in between that I’m just…not so sure about.
For instance, it came to my attention this afternoon [via the revolution] that the FDA approves 30 or more insect fragments per 100 grams of peanut butter.
Needless to say, my peanut butter sandwich that I had been craving and planned on eating for lunch earlier today pretty much dissolved along with my appetite.
Yeah, and theres more of where that came from.
Like how many insect fragments or rodent filth is allowed in chocolate, juice, or flour.
Feel free to read at your own risk.
Or just skip it.
But moving on here are a couple things I think should actually be shared:
this stuff is the bomb dot com.
it may not quite live up to the expectations of the guys over at the sporkful, but i think it’s a perfect snack and deliciously crunchy and flavorful on its own or in milk.
[i've been listening to the sporkful podcasts on my walks and am absolutely loving them. walks go by so fast. Just yesterday I listened to about 4 or 5 of their podcasts and low and behold I'd already walked 7 miles!]
2) whole foods is having a sale on a ton of their bars.
[luna, kind, cliff, think thin, etc.]
get on it.
3) just one egg can change leftovers and make them like new
take for instance – leftover fried rice
make a small dent and add an egg
cover with saran wrap and microwave for about 2.5 – 3 min
[time depends on how cooked you want your egg]
poke the yolk
good as new!
there’s just something about egg and brown rice thats just so mmm mm good.
I even added an egg to my veggie + chicken soup the other day. Just dropped an egg into my boiling pot of soup and covered and lowered it to a simmer for about 3 mins, until my egg just about all the way cooked through.
4) Frozen yogurt tastes amazing with the addition of pretzels
This particular cup contained kona coffee, chocolate mint, & coconut frozen yogurt topped with mini reeses pieces, chocolate chips and crushed pretzels.
The pretzels makes the yogurt.
Perfectly sweet & salty.
5) extra virgin coconut oil should be spread on english muffins
I love how it’s fluffy and opaque, but instantly liquifies and melts into all the crevices of a toasted english muffin.
And that’s all I have to share for now.
My dslr is currently not working so until I find a way to fix it, most of my photos are taken by my iPhone.
