I’ve been reviewing a variety of super tasty and innovative healthy snacks just recently, and the snack I’m featuring today is one of my favorites: the new and insanely delicious crunchy Tomato Chips from Just Pure Foods. When I was first pitched these chips, I envisioned a potato chip flavored with tomato, but once they arrived and I opened the package, I realized I was not even close.

Product Review: Scott’s Protein Balls Snacks
I’m not prone to making formal New Years’ Resolutions, but one thing I learned while hunkered down at home was how to develop healthier eating habits and stick with them. No one loves to eat more than me, so dieting isn’t my thing; but when I decide to make a change one step at a time, what originally seems daunting can become second-nature. For me, it’s all about baby steps: figuring out what works and making little adjustments as I go, so I don’t get bored or discouraged. Before I even realized how much my habits had changed, I’d dropped ten pounds. It’s been life-changing.

Product Review: Green Tomato Pickle By Tiffin Asha
Are you an adventurous eater? I sure am. Of all the ethnic foods that I love to eat, nothing has quite as distinctive a spice profile as the cuisine of India. It’s not just about the taste, it’s about the aroma — about the very being-ness of the food. What if there were a condiment you could add to foods to give them that Indian spice profile and crave-able flavor without having to hit up the exotic spice market and then spend all day in the kitchen? You would want to know about it, amiright? Please let me introduce you to Tiffin Asha’s Green Tomato Pickle condiment or, as I like to call it, Indian Food in a Jar.

Product Review: Koita Dairy-Free Oat Milk
The simple pleasures of enjoying a bowl of cereal with milk has returned to my life recently, thanks to a line of shelf-stable, plant-based milks from Koita, a natural foods company based in Italy (check out my review of Koita’s Organic Coconut Milk at This Link). This week I am reviewing Koita Oat Milk, made from Italian oats and water, and fortified with vitamins and calcium. I’ve reviewed oat milk-based beverages on the blog before and found them to be quite delicious, and ideal as a milk-substitute in smoothies and shakes, thanks to its creamy texture that’s very similar to dairy milk.
Product Review: Koita Organic Coconut Milk
When Covid dictated a shift from working at an office to working from home, my daily routine changed in many ways. One small but significant shift involved what I regularly enjoyed eating for breakfast each morning while sitting at my desk. The office pantry always stocked fresh milk in the fridge for our coffee or cereal, so it was super convenient (and saved me a few bucks) to keep a box of my favorite cereal — Barbara’s Peanut Butter Puffins, available at Trader Joe’s — at work. At home, I rarely purchase dairy milk because it basically starts to go bad as soon as it’s packaged, and it’s easy to forget to use it up before the expiration date hits. Needless to say (but you can see I am about to) when I started working from home — one year ago — I stopped eating packaged breakfast cereal entirely. That changed recently, when I found out about Koita, a line of shelf-stable, plant-based milks from Italy! Today I’m going to review Koita Organic Coconut Milk, which has brought the joy of breakfast cereal back into my life.
