Brand New Day & a giveaway!!
January 4, 2010
And what better way to start this new day than with a new bar!
Oh, 18 Rabbits… how you delight me. I have promised to sample & review this new flavor (what a chore, I know), so here it goes!
NEW! Belle Bananas Foster is the 5th addition t0 18 Rabbit’s splendid selection of granola bars. This flavor brags Banana, thus, equaling perfection. Normally, I runaway from banana flavored products like they’re an obese nutritionist… it just doesn’t sit well with me. However, this bar was the redemption of the banana flavored bar. It was not artificial. More so, it whispered its presence. A lovely banana bite grows as you chew, leaving you with a delicate after taste.
Lovely, no doubt.
The other day, I messed around with Margene (food processor) and concocted a tahini-less hummus.
1 can organic chickpeas
~1 oz. fat-free feta
Basil & Oregano (to taste. I used dry, but fresh would be optimal)
Balsamic Vinegar (to taste)
Puree in food processor chickpeas,feta, and herbs until smooth. While blending, drizzle balsamic vinegar into mixture. Do same with olive oil. Serve over a veggie couscous dinner 😉 or atop a salad, available for carrot dipping.
No food processor? No worries my friend! Here’s a little recipe for an equally delicious Mediterranean inspired dip.
Plain Greek or normal yogurt (I used Chobani 2% and it was thick and divine, Plain Yogurt will be slightly thinner and more wallet friendly)
(quantity of yogurt depends on desired servings)
~1 tsp of dried dill
Mix, mix, mix with a spoon and eat, eat, eat with pita, cucumber, or pretzels! This easy peasy protein packed dip is great for a snack or for a party.
And given the new year, I found it only suiting to host my first ever merit-worthy giveaway! What’s up for grabs?
1 bottle Organic Blue Agave, TJ’s Country Pumpkin Spice Granola, Chocolate Coconut Chew Larabar, Apricot Suncake, and 4 bags of Pear Green tea!
