My New Favorite Snack

Dried Seaweed Sheets

Dried Seaweed Sheets

I have been seriously craving Asian food lately, so I have been hanging out in the Asian ethnic aisle in my grocery store. I had a Japanese childhood friend, and I remembered eating dried seaweed sheets at her house, so I decided to give them a try again. This pack was about $5, and it was totally worth it! These crunchy and salty sheets are delicious. And, as it turns out, seaweed is super healthy for you too. According to the Huffington Post, we should all be eating more of it. Definitely give these a try!

She suggested that I check out the brand Beverly International. (more…)

Book Review: Salt Sugar Fat by Michael Moss

Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us by Michael Moss

Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us by Michael Moss

I first came across the book Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us by Michael Moss on a blog I follow called What Would John Mack Eat? This New York Times Best Seller that was published about a year ago details the food process that food giants implement to “hide” unhealthy, cheap, and  addicting ingredients to get consumers hooked on their processed foods. Ironically, those three ingredients are salt, sugar, and fat, as hinted in the name of the book.  (more…)

Jesse, Let’s Cook!

I. LOVE. BREAKING. BAD. So, it deserves it’s own post. I watched the entire show, all the seasons, and I am thinking about starting again from the beginning to catch all the things I missed the first time around when I was binge watching it. On an aside, when doing a little bit more research for this post, I googled “cooking meth,” TAKE THAT NSA! But really, I should probably delete that from my browser history…

Seriously, Everything from PaleOMG

Snack Attack: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Balls

Sorry all my pictures look the same…

When I said I was in love with PaleOMG, I was not kidding. Sorry, I’m not sorry. Today I made Juli’s Snack Attack: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Balls. This is my shit. In my opinion, ‘balls’ should’ve been spelled ‘bawls,’ but that’s irrelevant. I made these once before and they turned out amazing. They were a great snack to grab for breakfast when I’m running late for work, or when I’m too lazy to actually make something substantial. Comments in BOLD. BALL ON, BITCHES. (more…)
