This blog is becoming more and more like a Tumblr in that lately, I only post pictures of random things I like to eat. Whatever, that’s okay for now! This package of nuts caught my eye as I was checking out at my local health food store, The Turnip Truck (the original one, not the monstrosity in the gulch). The package said YumNuts. So I giggled. Then I saw ginger in the description and bought them on an impulse.
See the ingredients. These were just meh. They had a sort of thick coating on the outside and were far blander than I expected for something that should have been ginger flavored. They could have also really benefited from some salt. There’s NONE in them! A little bit would really have made these delicious. The more of these I ate, the more they grew on me…but I maintain that they needed more ginger.
I’ve always been an Ezekiel bread girl, but I have to eat it toasted, and even then, it’s a bit hard/dense for me. Enter, Alvarado Street Bakery SourDough. AMAZING. This is my new favorite bread! I wish they made burger buns. I’ll stick with ezekiel bread buns for now I suppose. This bread is light and fluffy and even gets soft if you don’t over toast it. This is a much thinner and less dense bread. Love it.
I have a kidney infection right now, so I’m drinking a lot of dandelion root tea, green juice and water-and avoiding alcohol and caffeine…but yesterday, I couldn’t help checking out the new beer selection at my local 4 stop market. I’m super excited that they are carrying Framboise-and that it’s cheaper than Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods sell it for. SWEET.
Pretty eggplant. I scored this for 75 cents. I sliced it up, salted then rinsed it, and brushed this with about 1 T of garlic olive oil, then roasted the slices. Sammich time. On some of that bread I talked about above…with hummus, herbs, arugula and maybe roasted tomato. MMM.
This is something I do not love.
I was under the impression that Hansen made NATURAL sodas. So when I bought this diet drink, I assumed it was stevia sweetened. It was not. It had splenda. GROSS CITY. I trashed this after opening it.
Does anyone have any additional tips for kidney cleasing/flushing besides dandelion root and lots of water? Kidney infections are NOT like UTIs/bladder infections. In case you’ve never had a kidney infection, it doesn’t hurt when you pee. It feels like your lower back is injured, you’re nauseous like you’re pregnant, you have a constant headache/fuzzy feeling, are unable to focus well, and feel generally unwell/down. Generally, antibiotics are the treatment-or hospitalization. I am trying to avoid antibiotics for now since they absolutely wreck my system and I’ve dealt with this type of issue for most of my life.
