Easy Elotes

I. Love. Elotes. I know, I love a lot of foods. But, this stuff seriously gets me, every time! I see all kinds of ideas for them and thought about making them. But, making them fresh is such a process and sometimes I get really hungry and need them NOW! I tried this and thought…

Vitality Bowls, Frisco

There is a growing trend of acai bowls, right now. They were first made trendy on the west coast, sort of made it on the east coast and now they’re in the south. You might see a few places here and there. But, do you really know what they are? Someone asked me if it’s…

Which Wich Lettucewiches

I love sandwich places that offer a breadless alternative. They really make my soul smile. I had eaten at Which Wich, when I was still eating meat. But, I wasn’t sure about how well it would fare with my Vegetarian needs AND my IBS restrictions. So, when my mom wanted me to grab something for…

Sazon Veggie Stock, Goya

I like using stock when I cook. Sometimes it can be harder to find vegetable stock, especially if you are looking for a powder and not the broth. I found this and thought it would be good to share. It isn’t a strong flavor, so I use quite a bit. I used it in my…

Mashed Cauliflower, Hanover

I found this box of mashed cauliflower at Walmart and decided to give it a try. I had never tried it and thought that now was as good a time as any. Having never even made my own, my curiosity got the better of me. The only one available was the ranch flavor, though I…

Red Lentil Fusili, Lensi

I hadn’t had pasta in twelve years. I saw all of the alternatives, but some just didn’t do it for me. Others contained ingredients I couldn’t have. And then I found this on the Walmart site! I was really excited by the fact that it only included Red Lentil flour and decided to try it….

Woops, Grapevine Mills 

I had always wanted to try macarons. I had some when I was younger, but who appreciates anything when they’re nine? I always looked at them longingly, like donuts or cake. But, I didn’t realize until recently that they are traditionally made with Almond flour. So, imagine my surprise when last week I found a…

Crustless Pizza (Pizza Pie)

I made a crustless pizza last week and have been craving it ever since! So, I decided to make another one and actually show what I used and how much.  🙂 Three dollars worth of canned goods. I mixed the past and the diced tomatoes for the marinara. I love the taste of tomatoes, so…

Zucchini Lentil Pasta, Bird Eye Veggie Made

    I saw this on Walmart’s website and thought I was going to have a heart attack. I just HAD to try it! I haven’t had pasta in twleve years…here’s my chance! This. Is. AMAZING! It tasted like mac and cheese, or at least what I remember it tasting like when I was a…

Sesame Snacks, 99cent Ranch

I was really bad and hadn’t eaten for a couple of days. Literally, I hadn’t eaten anything at all and had scheduled when I could drink water. And water was all that I was drinking. I hadn’t even been drinking a bottle a day, for those days. I was trying to cut water weight for…

Vegan Falafel

I am always a fan of falafel. Anytime I see it, I’m going to order it. I saw these in Sprouts and figured “why not?”. While they weren’t horrible, they were dry. If you’re going to dip them in tzatziki or hummus, they might be better. But, they seemed rubbery and just feel like they…

Tri-color Quinoa, Great Value

I’ve made no secret of my love for Quinoa. I would have to say that the Tri-color is my favorite, since it has quite a few textures mixed together. It is about thirty cents cheaper than it’s counterparts, too! If you are worried about it taking too long to make, know that you can microwave…
