Foodie Finds & a Quick Giveaway

You guys know by now that I’m a sucker for delicious food. I want to start sharing some of my favorite foodie finds with you, because it feels criminal not to!!! Some of these items were provided to me for review purposes but some came out of my own pocket. Let’s start by talking about the thing that’s been kicking my “kravings” to the kurb (ha!) all weekend.

1) Krave Jerky. I’ve always liked beef jerky, but usually, I stay away from it because of the price tag. It’s also high in sodium, but as an occasional treat, I think it’s fine for people like me who tend to skimp on protein. Krave Jerky makes artisanal jerky from beef, pork and turkey – and by far, my favorite is the amazing lemon garlic turkey jerky. A whole pouch of this stuff is only 200 calories and 15 grams of protein, so it’s an awesome and filling snack. Because Krave kindly sent me several packs to try, I’m going to give you a chance to win one! Comment on this blog post after visiting their website and tell me which flavor you’d most like to try. Next week I’ll pick one random commenter to win a pack of Krave and a couple Soya fishes. Anyways, back to the Krave. As of today I’ve inhaled the lemon pepper flavor and the smoky grilled teriyaki. Both were insanely delicious, and I’m thinking about subscribing to their Jerky-a-month club so I always have a protein-rich, low GI snack on hand when I start my PCOS Diet (Countdown – five days! I’m seeing my doctor on Friday and once I get to go-ahead, will begin the new plan).

2) Little Soya Fishies. I was browsing Cost Plus on a lunch break and instantly my eye was drawn to these adorable fish shaped packets of soy sauce! Soy sauce is a hot commodity in my household because we’re constantly using it to marinade meats. I bought these little fishies thinking they’d be perfect to have on hand for the days when we’re out of soy sauce and our meal needs a salty little kick. Little Soya’s fishies are MSG free and have a robust, more full flavor than most soy sauces I’ve tasted. Deeeeeelicious! The problem is, they’re so darn cute I don’t want to use them. PS: Visit their website and fill out the pop-up form to receive a free fishie of your own to sample!

3) Chobani FLIPs. I got serious yogurt-envy when I saw some of my other bloggy pals had received Chobani FLIPs to try out, because I’d been seeing them mentioned everywhere and I could not find them for the life of me!! Thankfully, the kind people at Chobani recognized a serious craving when they saw one, because they sent over two FLIP flavors to try – the Almond Coco Loco and the Raspberry Choco Fix. I would have taken a picture of the Coco Loco’s, but um, they were all gone. These are seriously intensely awesome – at 230 calories, 12 – 15 grams of protein and the TEXTURE! Holy cow, the texture. The yogurt has these amazing coconut flakes in it, and when you dump in the chocolate chunks and almond slivers, it’s like eating sort-of-healthy ice cream. I had to seriously keep my hands off of them because they were that good. Now looking at their website, it looks like they’ve come out with some other new flavors, like Honey Bee Nana and Key Lime Crumble. Yum, yum, yum. Don’t eat that artificially-sweetened dessert yogurt junk when you can have something a lot closer to the real thing. I’ll definitely keep these around as a sweet-treat every now and then. Give it a try, you won’t regret it.

  1. Your blog is awesome… please continue to discuss the PCOS diet I just requested the book from the library.

  2. You know what’s super tasty? The Trader Joes fresh mozzarella cheese sticks. It’s like the kind they sell in tubs, but in string cheese shape. It’s amazing and only 80 cals.
