Better Bean Review

Mauro and I love all types of beans and we cook them from scratch for the most part. We always keep some prepared beans (canned, frozen, etc.) on hand, though, for those days when we’re tight on time and need to prep a quick dinner. Better Bean is now one of our favorites to keep on hand. They have 5 types of prepared and well seasoned beans that are ready to heat and eat. Of... Read More

Journey Bar Product Review & Giveaway

I’ve been working on cutting out added sugars from my diet, wherever possible, for several years now. Not that I don’t like sugar, but mostly because 1) I don’t feel my best when I have too much of it, 2) I have a desk job and don’t move around much during working hours, 3) there’s too much of it in everything and that’s just not good health-wise,... Read More

Sneaky Pete’s Review & Giveaway

Sneaky Pete’s yummy flavors Sneaky Pete’s Review I don’t really drink packaged beverages all that much anymore. I cut out soda well over a decade ago and started cutting out other sweet beverages a little over 5 years ago. I find that most packaged juice are mostly sugar (empty calories, and usually a lot of them) with no added benefit. Since I sit in an office... Read More

I am addicted to these chips. The first time I had them was in the restaurant down stairs in my building and every time I went down for lunch I had to have them. It got so bad the restaurant said they weren’t going to carry them and I ordered a case from Route 11. They have select potatoes, peanut oil and/or high monounsaturated sunflower oil, dehydrated cane juice, salt, paprika,... Read More
