WILDWOOD SPROUTED TOFU

WILDWOOD SPROUTED TOFU

RAD REVIEW #2:
WILDWOOD SPROUTED TOFU

This tofu is awesome!
It tastes the same as regular tofu but has 14g of protein instead of 8g because it’s made with sprouted tofu. It’s also packed with all sorts of nutrients as is anything made withsprouted anything.

It is the only brand of sprouted tofu on the market right now so it may be more difficult to find but definitely worth looking for.

This gets a 9/10 Super Sexy rating.

JUSTIN’S CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT SPREAD

JUSTIN’S CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT SPREAD

One of the hardest things I had to go through when I realized I had food intolerances was having to try new brands… and we all know half the stuff out there that’s GF or dairy-free usually makes you want to stab your eyes out or just not eat. Period. 

So I’ve decided to start highlighting my favorite new discoveries. 

REVIEW #1:
JUSTIN’S CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT SPREAD

When I was told I had an intolerance to cow’s milk, you can bet that one of the first things I thought was: “OH NOOOO HOW CAN I LIVE WITHOUT NUTELLA????” And for a long time I still cheated occasionally by indulging in a spoon here and there.

Until I found Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut spread. I’ve tried a variety of dark chocolate nut spreads. Always too thick, too grainy, too much dark chocolate, not enough dark chocolate, too oily, too hard.

I honestly love this more than nutella. Not because it tastes better but because it tastes nearly as good but with NO GUILT. The no guilt gives it that extra point. I eat in on gluten free toast, by the spoon when I’m needing some lovin’ and you can probably even throw it in a homemade frap or smoothie. 

Its vegan, gluten-free, organic and has all the good fats of nut butters. Guilt-Free chocolate bliss!

I give this is 11/10 Stupified Sexy rating.

ACORN SQUASH

MY FIRST DATE WITH ACORN SQUASH

Tonight, I made acorn squash with maple syrup and brown rice miso stirfy veggies! 

THE DIRECTIONS:
– Cut acorn squash in half, drizzle with maple syrup. 
– Put in the oven for an hr at 400.
– The last ten mins, start to make your stirfy veggies. You can mix anything you have in your fridge and stirfy in miso paste, olive oil, garlic and shallots. 

The combo of the salty miso and the maple syrup was ABSOLUTELY HEAVENLY!

This was my first time trying acorn squash. Dare to try new things! It’s like going on a first date! It could go terribly wrong but if it goes right, damn was it worth it 

NUTRITIONAL VALUE:
Acorn squash is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C and beta-carotene. It is also a very good source of thiamin, vitamin B6, potassium, magnesium,and manganese, and a good source of iron.

Next time, I would cut out the carrots and minimize the maple because the combo was quite sugar-filled (…but oh-so-delicious!)
