Tis the season for Tofurky!

Perhaps you have a vegetarian coming over for Thanksgiving this year. Seems every family has somebody nowadays that is not eating meat. Struggling over what to feed them? Well, I know that Thanksgiving is all about the Turkey but being a veggie myself, I can tell you that you don’t really need to do anything all that special for your vegetarian family or friends.

One of the things I love about Thanksgiving is all the choices of side dishes. Yams, stuffing, cranberries, pumpkin pie, green bean casserole…Thanksgiving is great! One key thing you can do is keep veggie stuff veggie. For instance, don’t put marshmallows (not vegetarian) on top of all the yams. Another tip is to not use chicken broth in your stuffing…try using vegetable broth instead. Little things like this will make your veggie guests feel welcome.

We are having a Tofurky this year! Well, we have a Tofurky just about every year as it has become a tradition in our household.

The Tofurky has been around since 1995 and made from Organic Tofu and non-GMO ingredients. I love the stuffing inside! I tell my wife every year that the leftovers make great sandwiches. She is quick to point out that there are never any leftovers and wonders what I am going on about. Maybe I buy two this year…

Available at most Foodland stores for $14.99 and worth every bite! You will want to defrost it in the ice box the night before to speed up the cooking process. Need any other pointers for a wonderful veggie feast??? Just let me know.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Katy's Kettle Corn Popchips!

Mmmm…popchips! You know I love them. What’s not to love? No artificial colors, flavors or anything really bad for you. Katy Perry apparently loves them too and recently partnered with popchips to create her own new flavor.

I usually don’t get crazy for Kettle Corn, as I like salty more than sweet, but let's just say, I tried Katy Perry's new Kettle Corn popchips, and I liked it!

They have the perfect blend of sweet and salty with all the popchips goodness. ... more »

We are so excited to have Silk® Nog Soymilk and Silk ®Mint Chocolate Soymilk in our Foodland stores! It is on Maikai for $3.99 for the 32 oz carton.

The Greek Yogurt Phenomenon

Greek Yogurt has really taken off in the last few years and for good reason. It's natural, nutritious, full of protein and the taste is uniquely rich and creamy.

Silk® Fruit & Protein available now at Foodland!

I finally got to try the Silk® Fruit & Protein drinks! But let me tell you, it wasn’t easy….

When I originally got samples of the three flavors, I organized a tasting within our office for a few people to try. I ended up getting called into a meeting and when I came out, the containers were all empty and I had nothing but glowing reviews.

Then, I went and bought one at Foodland Beretania and my niece polished it off before I ever got a chance at it!

Cooking with Coconut Oil

Have you tried cooking with coconut oil yet?

It has become a staple in my house, but often when I tell people about this wonderful oil, I hear something to the effect of, “aren’t tropical oils bad for you?” I also heard a lot about coconut oil being high in saturated fat, which didn’t sound good either.

Earth Balance Coconut Peanut Butter Spread

Anybody remember that Reese’s Peanut butter commercial (I might be dating myself here) where the guys are walking around the corner…one is eating chocolate and the other is eating peanut butter. They bump into each other and create a truly wonderful flavor combination. Well…it took a few decades but that winning combination of chocolate and peanut butter might have just got beat out by coconut and peanut butter! I just finished my first jar of Earth Balance Coconut and Peanut Spread ... more »
