A fun new salad from Taylor Farms: Dill Pickle Chopped Kit
www.taylorfarms.com/news/new
-salad-kit
-flavors-headed-your-way/

I like the crinkle cut radishes & creamy dill pickle dressing. The crumbled croutons are supposed to be pickle flavored--I didn't notice a difference, so skipped them my second time trying this one. A fun crunchy salad for summer. You can add meat if you want.

We must have been talking teas on the chat thread, and Eva mentioned one that sounded good. I picked up Celestial Seasonings Honey Vanilla Chamomile that sounded like the one she said she liked. I finally tried it for the first time, and it's good! Sweet and soothing, and stronger than most chamomile teas I've tried.

Ooh, I like that Red Dragon tea! (That was a recommendation on another team, a Chai Spice tea by Stash.) I usually alternate my tea boxes, so I cycle through all the varieties, but I liked it so much I had it both yesterday morning and afternoon before rotating the boxes.

Since I've taken a late lunch at work for years, I've eaten a frozen meal (normally eaten for lunch or dinner) for breakfast, since it needs to last me a long time, and I prefer protein and veggies to breads or cereals. I would normally buy the Safeway brand, or Healthy Choice or Lean Cuisine when they were on sale. I wasn't real happy with the selection, though, since my Safeway mostly carried meals with a low fiber content & fewer colors and veggies. So I checked my Fred Meyer, which I am hitting more for Taylor Farms salads, and discovered they carried *way* more varieties of Healthy Choice meals! And with a sale, I loaded up and tried all sorts:
--Chicken Tikka Masala, just 190 cal w/ riced cauliflower, 7 g fiber, 17 g protein
--Mediterranean-Style Lentil Bowl, 250 cal, 10 & 13 (grams fiber & protein)
--Creamy Spinach & Tomato Linguini, 230, 5 & 10
--Grilled Basil Chicken, 230, 5 & 19
--Italian Chicken Sausage & Peppers Power Bowl, 290, 6 & 16
--Meatless Chipotle Chick'n Power Bowl, 280, 7 & 19
emoticon
Given that most of what I've found at Safeway had 2-5 g of fiber, I liked these numbers better. Sorry, I don't count carbs, but the ones mentioned here run 20-39 g, and sodium 490-600 mg. Anyway, I'm enjoying them, and thought I'd pass them on.

Members sometimes share favorite foods, tools, personal care, or housekeeping products. So here is a place to gather them. My first ones are foods. I'm sharing a link to a blog I wrote about favorite salads available at Fred Meyer and Safeway (though my closest ones don't have all 3) as well as my favorite at Trader Joe's.

And here are two items I especially like at Trader Joe's: their Cuban Style Black Beans and Red Refresh Herbal Tea

Yeah, I know that's really long. I was just going to include a link to the product info on the TJ site, but there are recipe links on that Google page as well. I like these better than the plain black beans because they are so flavorful--not spicy hot, just very savory!

If you liked Celestial Seasonings Red Zinger tea, but can't find it anymore, this one from Trader Joe's is quite similar. www.traderjoes.com/digin/pos

So those are my food picks. I look forward to seeing what other members want to tout. Whoa! Let me change that. I just Googled the meaning of tout, and it said "attempt to sell (something), typically by pestering people in an aggressive or bold manner." No aggression here--I just want to hear your suggestions! emoticon
