Foodie Finds

Hi lovelies! I hope that you all have had a nice week and are ready for the weekend! It’s a three-day weekend for me (whoohoo!) and I think it is a four-day weekend for some of you lucky ducks out there! I hope that you all have some great stuff planned- I’m actually going into this weekend without too many set plans and am excited to just see where it takes me.

Besides my recent forays into cooking, I’ve been eating some great pre-made stuff lately too! It’s been a very long time since I did foodie finds but it’s a chance to feature some of my new favorite products- and hopefully ones that will soon be yours too!

Falafel Chips

I first discovered Falafel Chips when I was visiting my brother in Dallas at the best grocery store ever, Central Market. I thought they were absolutely delicious, flavorful gluten-free snack but when I came back to SF, I could not find falafel chips anywhere! Then, a few weeks ago when reading my Trader Joe’s Fearless Flyer (please say I’m not the only one who reads these cover to cover) I spotted them as a new item. I promptly picked them up and have been hooked ever since. These are a little spicier than the ones I had before, but they are perfect in Trader Joe’s tomato basil hummus.

La Croix Sparkling Water

I love carbonated drinks and in the past have had a bad Diet Coke habit. When I tried to cut Diet Coke out, I found that what I craved the most wasn’t the taste but the carbonation. So I started drinking sparkling water and my absolute favorite is La Croix! It’s free of calories, sweetener and sodium and is just pure sparkling water. It comes in a variety of flavors but my favorites are berry and lime. It comes in a can (which also makes it feel more like soda) and it tastes crisp and bubbly!

Trader Joe’s Gourmet Chicken Meatballs

I’ve never really liked meatballs. They are usually made of pork (which I don’t eat) or beef, which I rarely eat so I’ve always kind of stayed away. Well the other day when I spotted these at Trader Joe’s they just sounded different from things that I usually eat. These are made from chicken and combined with some of my favorite things– tomato, basil and provolone. They come fully cooked and only need to be heated in the microwave for a few seconds. I dipped mine (don’t worry- the above was for 3 people!) into tomato-basil sauce and they were so, so good! Full of flavor and packed with protein, I will definitely be buying these again!

Nature’s Habit Granola

I consider myself somewhat of a granola connoisseur (hint: why I’m Ms. GGGranola) and I have a new granola love. Nature’s Habit granola is made in Napa (my neighbor!) and is one of the best granolas that I’ve tried to date! It’s not just the oats like most granolas, rather, it’s incredibly crunchy and full of clusters. Plus, you get nuts in almost every bite which is always a selling point to me. I’ve tried both the Granola with Almonds and Pecans and the Granola with Cherries and Cocoa and both were incredible! Oh and best of all, I found this gem at Walgreens of all places! Who knew?!
