Trying new foods.

Saturday, October 24, 2009

I went to the grocery store today and I was getting the urge to try some new foods. I found a few things that looked OK to eat. I hope they are... if they are not, feel free to make a comment. I will just give it to my kiddos, lol. The first thing I look for is the calories and how many calories come from fat. I won't eat or buy it unless it is 25% or less. Except on stuff like peanut butter.

Fiber One pancake mix

Fiber One frozen Choc. Chip Muffins (for my breakfast)

Whole wheat ravioli (already cooked and packaged) chicken and tomatoes (I've never been a big ravioli person... but for some reason this looked good)

Bought some Bertolli marinara sauce to go with the ravioli.

Whole Wheat bagels

Fresh Snow Peas- lol, I rarely eat snow peas! Been doing a lot of fresh green beans.

Bare Naked granola~ I am bagging this up into snack bags. I can easily myself going hog wild on this.

and... OMG I finally found the PB and Co. Dk Choc PeanutButter. I don't know about this one. This is clearly on my "radar" to get thrown in the trashcan if I find myself craving too much of it.

    Since you have snow peas, try combining them in equal parts by volume with frozen green peas adding them to the frozen ones for the last half of the cooking time. They add a delightful fresh flavor.

    You can also add them to soups instead of regular peas. Different texture to both tongue and eye.

    The green beans are good instead of pasta with any tomato based sauce. But to cut down on the salt try making your own. I'd have to check, but I thin that the canned tomatoes, even though they do have quite a bit of salt, contain less than the prepared sauces. Besides, you can season your sauce to your taste. I like to add a little nutmeg and either fennel or anise seeds -- they sweeten the tomatoes slightly and seem to deepen the flavor overall -- to the usual basil, oregano and rosemary.

    I don't know what commercial bakeries supply your supermarket, but here in the Northeast Arnold has a line of Sandwich Thins, hamburger sized very thin rolls in several varieties. The whole grain ones are my favorite and I like to toast them to go with my morning egg just as is -- no butter, occasionally a smear of jam. Five grams of fiber and 100 calories each make them a winner in my book. they are tasty too ...
