It’s Friday Food Finds! Time for some fun food/kitchen finds that will make your life a bit easier (and tastier)!
This kitchen gadget might be the coolest thing I’ve seen in a while. I’m always getting on my husband for microwaving food either right in the baggie it comes in or in a cheap plastic container. Unlike me, he has no fear of chemicals leaching into his food. That’s why these bags from Lekue are pretty awesome. You can store, freeze, reheat, and cook in these cool silicone, resealable bags. Basically, you can pull your food straight from the freezer and toss into the microwave. Super simple and solves the “how do I freeze this?” problem. Shop around for the best price. I found mine at Amazon, but fair warning, they are not cheap. 🙂
Since Trader Joe’s stopped selling my beloved Tongol Tuna, I’ve had to find a replacement. This Wild Planet pole-caught skipjack light tuna is sustainably caught and hand packed raw into BPA free cans without added oil, water, or fillers. It’s super rich in omega 3 fatty acids and because it’s light tuna, the mercury levels are low.
Every time I use my Baggu bags the grocery clerk asks me about them or makes a comment. They really are the best reusable shopping bag. They hold so much (up to 25 pounds!) and fold down into little squares that fit in my purse. They’re made of durable non-rip nylon (that you can put in washing machine). I can’t say enough about my baggu bags. They now have 50+ colors and designs…order a few of these and you will be hooked.
I’ve tried every stevia product on the planet and have yet to find one I like. Until I was introduced by a friend (thanks Lisa!) to Nu Naturals liquid stevia. This stuff is awesome. It’s concentrated so you only need a few drops. I’m not a baker and don’t really add sugar to my foods, so I only use it for liquids (tea/coffee and smoothies). If you were going to use it on cereal or for baking, I would suggest the Nu Naturals Stevia powder. You can find both on my Amazon store or at Whole Foods and Wegmans!
