I tried some new cheeses from Organic Valley .
Most of my food isn't organic (I'm a college student and it's just not in my budget to eat all organic, unfortunately) but I think organic dairy is important. I don't want all of those icky growth hormones (tied to breast cancer and other health issues) in my food!
The Muenster was my favorite, though, it's super delicious! I enjoyed them both on a lightly toasted Van's multigrain with flax english muffin, while going over my chemistry notes.
The english muffin was definitely more enjoyable than the chemistry studying.
Organice Valley Feta Cheese also tastes great in a veggie stir-fry.
I'm usually not a huge red peppers fan, but it tastes great here with the zucchini and feta cheese.
I finally tried the Larabar Uber bar - the Apple Turnover flavor.
It's quite different from the other Larabars in that the nuts and dried fruits aren't all ground up, but rather stuck together by brown rice syrup and honey.
It was very cinnamon-y and I really enjoyed the walnuts with the dried apple and raisins! I thought it was delicious and liked it as much as the Larabars (though not quite as much as Jocolat - it's hard to compete with chocolate).
I'm still loving Alter Eco chocolate.
I'm especially enjoying the Dark Almond one right now - it's not so dark that milk chocolate fans won't enjoy it, but it is nice and chocolatey.
And there are plenty of almonds (score).
I also came up with a quick and easy drink for spring.
Healthy Orange Creamsicle (serves 1)
* 1 c. Siggi's Filmjolk
* 1/3 c. orange juic
Another super healthy treat is these yummy cacao nibs from Sunfood .
There's one of those handy windows in the back, so you know when you're due to buy some more.
I love trying new things and I love new combinations!
But old combinations hold a special place in my heart, too :)
Sweet beans with frozen fruit and energy bars (this is a Coconut Cashew Crisp Zing Bar ) are so delicious!
As is greek yogurt.
