Picked up something new at Trader Joe’s today.  Sunflower Seed Butter!

Just wanted to try something new and different.  I must say I was not sure of what to expect, but this stuff tastes amazing on it’s own.  I am very excited on this find.  Another way to get fiber, protein and fat in a healthy ratio.

This can also be added to a smoothie in place of peanut butter or spread onto some crackers or an apple.

The price was 3.99 for a 1 pound jar making it cheaper than almond butter (6.99) but more than peanut butter (2.49)

This is my new favorite breakfast cereal.  It literally tastes like you are eating a pancake!

I suggest adding some almond milk and sprinkling some walnuts on top.

This was purchased from Whole Foods in Cincinnati

Tonight was Pizza Night!  This crust that we used is gluten free.  We bought it from Krogers.  It’s actually a Canadian company that makes it, so I’m sure its available in Loblaws Health Food Section. This ready made pizza crust is better than any other crust that we’ve had.  The company is Kinnikinnick.  We also made this dairy free and opted to put no cheese on it.  However, the crust does contain egg, so it is not vegan.

Yellow peppers are very high in lutein and zeaxanthin which are great for healthy eyes and are both powerful antioxidants! Red peppers are very rich in Vitamin C and contain 11 times more beta-carotene than green peppers.  Beta-carotene is a form of Vitamin A and is great for your eyes.  They promote a healthy heart and healthy lungs.
