Trying Out New Foods
There is nothing like the beginning of a school year to bring about more change in our household and for us, that means co-sampling new products. Have you tried this?
Building Better Sandwiches
I am all about changing up the toppings, the dressings and the things my kids use to top off their sandwiches and snacks and one of my favorite new finds… Garlic Herb, Honey Mustard & Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper Sabra Spreads with Hummus.(affiliate)
No more useless salty toppings without a bit of protein, rather, hummus is providing 75% less fat than the leading mayo and it is packed FULL of flavor. What makes this hummus unique? The squeeze bottle. You can make ‘s’ patterns on the food and it spreads once on the sandwich or cracker after you have squeezed it out.
Big Crunches & Bold Flavor
Sometimes it is all about the delivery of the crunch. Sharp cheddar and smooth sour cream potatoes make the yummy Popchips (affiliate) Ridges Cheddar Sour Cream Flavor.
It’s amazing that these pop chips are gluten-free, popped, not fried, and have half the fat of fried potato chips. Pair these with dips and let them side up that sandwich prepared with SABRA Spreads with Hummus.
