Frugal Friday Food Should Taste Good, Yes?

Posted Mar 18 2011 3:05pm
Of all the flavor varieties, I would have to say that the Multigrain was the derby champ. Made with brown rice flour, soy flour and quinoa - and sprinkled throughout with sunflower and flax seeds - it is entirely gluten-free and completely delicious! It was a perfect pairing for homemade hummus.
If you're wanting more of a nacho-type chip, though, look no further than the Yellow Corn . It is the thickest and the strongest, and held up very well to my heavy heaps of Daiya cheddar and taco-flavored soy crumbles. The Blue Corn , while very tasty, crumbled like nitroglycerin-encrusted rose petals under the weight of nacho toppings, and easily broke when dipped into hummus. The Blue Corn chips are best eaten with a light salsa or just plain.
I would love to tell you what I thought of the Jalapeno flavor, but my husband cracked them open and gobbled up the whole bag before I had a chance. When I asked him what he thought of them, he smiled through a mouthful of chips and gave me a hearty thumbs-up. Guess that means they're good!
Likewise, my two-and-a-half year old daughter downed the bag of Sweet Potato chips pretty much all by her little tiny self. Although she did graciously shove one or two of them in my mouth before she polished off the bag. The verdict? Delicious! There isn't much that comes from a sweet potato that I won't eat. I love them. My daughter loves them. My husband loves them. The chips were mildly, but naturally, sweet. They did not require a dip. They are a perfect side to sandwiches and soups. These were a very close second to the Multigrain.
Lastly, we come to the Olive chips. These chips were very tasty, but only if you love olives. I do happen to love olives, so I took to the chips with fervor. But the olive-y taste is strong. They are not just made with olive oil - there are actually three types of real olives right there in the chip. So, just a warning... If you don't like the taste of olives, avoid these. However, if you love the taste of olives, tear these bad boys up. They are really good! And they taste great with hummus, so I highly recommend that pairing.
A special thanks goes out to Food Should Taste Good for sending me this box of delicious yum-yums. My whole family enjoyed them!

If any of you are devouring Kris Carr's new book, Crazy Sexy Diet , (like I am!) you may be looking for alternatives to acid-causing, gut-rotting coffee.  A while back Teeccino was offering free samples on they're website and I was lucky enough to claim one. Teeccino is an acid-free, caffeine-free, herbal coffee replacement. It's organic and easy on the tummy. To be clear, I was not asked to write up this little testimonial for Teeccino, and I am not a business affiliate with them in any way, shape or form. I am honestly recommending this product to anyone who needs to kick the coffee habit. I am using Teeccino to transition from coffee to green tea in the mornings. The Teeccino is the middle-man that's going to take me from coffee to decaf green tea. Then, hopefully, after a while all I will require to wake up in the morning is a splash of water on my face and a green smoothie!
If you want to try Teeccino with me, they are offering free shipping, through this weekend only, on any order. No minimum purchase required. Just enter the code 'Teequinox11' at checkout. I won't buy anything online unless there's free shipping. I'm just hardcore like that. So, this is a great deal to take advantage of!
Also, if you buy any three 11-ounce bags of brew-able Teeccino, you will get a dollar off of each bag automatically.
