Happy Weekend!

I know I have been a bit absent, but this was a long week for me and I attempted multiple times to get this post written up, but failed each time to actually finish it and publish.  So this post is actually a draft that originally was going to be published Tuesday, attempted again on Thursday, then pushed back once more to Friday and now it finally is getting finished for Saturday.

I really just wanted to share with you guys some fun food finds I have been enjoying lately. I love sharing new products that I am using and loving, because one great thing about the blog world, Twitter and Instagram is finding out about products that we may not have found on our own.

So here goes.

1. Thin Slim Foods

I got the opportunity to try some of Thin Slim Foods and I think they are worth checking out.

I don’t personally follow a low carb diet (this girl loves her carbs) but I think it’s great that there are company’s who cater to people who do.

 They offer a wide variety of products including breads, bagels, muffins, cookies and brownies.

I first tried their everything bagel and topped it with my home made almond banana butter.

It toasted great, but I think it would have been better paired with cream cheese or something savory. I just didn’t have any on hand but it was still tasty none the less and toasted like a regular bagel which was nice!

(edit: since this was originally written I have had this bagel topped with cream cheese and I am happy to report it is 10x better with a more savory topping. You can actually really enjoy the “everything” taste and I loved it!)

If you remember my obsession with The Great Low Bread Company’s squares, Thin Slim Foods offer something very similar!

We all know my love for anything banana. I made a chocolate protein greek yogurt mix to have with this and really chocolate +banana = amazing.

The great thing about these squares is they are a very decent size for just 40 calories! So if you’re counting calories this is a great late night snack to satisfy that sweet tooth.  And since they also have brownies, that’s even better.

muffin

Their muffins aren’t your standard muffin by any means, but again if you’re looking for a little snack they are a great option.

Overall I was pretty impressed with these products. I will mention that my cinnamon bagels did get some mold spots shortly after receiving them and I was not able to try them due to not wanting to risk eating a spoiled product.  This could have easily been a shipping issue and maybe not an actual product problem. I’m not sure, but it is something to be aware of.

2. NutriForce Protein

Remember my love for Sweet Spreads?

Well guess what. The lovely lady who runs Sweet Spreads has a pretty sweet fiance.

He works for NutriForce Sports and I can see why they’re a couple because they are both amazing and a pleasure to work with.

We all know my love for baking with protein powders and NutriForce has some pretty fun flavors.  You had me at coffee. I’ve been adding this to my protein breads, donuts, and overnight oats. I’m a huge fan of coffee and anything flavored coffee, so this was a fun flavor to add into my breakfast baking. I’m playing around with a coffee protein pancake/waffle recipe, so be on the look out for that in the near future!

They also offer a wide variety of performance products, I think their recovery aminos look great too! Definitely check them out!

3. Manitoba Harvest Hemp Protein

If you follow me on Instagram you have seen quite a few pictures of these lately.

It’s not a rare occurrence with me that once I find a new food that I love I become a bit obsessed with it and eat it almost daily.

That’s what happened with my dark chocolate hemp protein muffins.

I can’t get enough of them.

I have tried hemp protein before, but I’m telling you this dark chocolate hemp protein is by far the best I have used.

These muffins are a great addition to any meal.

Topped with peanut butter.

Ah-mazing.

If you have hemp protein, I highly suggest making these. If you don’t, I highly suggest ordering some.

Well loves, I am back to the crazy busy of life. Things should hopefully not be as hectic next week, so hopefully you will be seeing more of me. But until then, have a great weekend!
