Exciting News on the Horizon

As I was surfing the net looking for information on gluten-free flours, I just came across this awesome website by Conagra Mills and their new product Ancient Grains.  Ancient Grains is a new gluten-free flour blend that will soon be available to commercial bakeries & manufacturers!  How exciting is that?  Sadly Ancient Grains won’t be available to buy at your local grocery store, but hopefully in some of the products on those very shelves soon! 

The other day I mentioned Champagne Grapes in my post.  I have been enjoying these numerous ways, but I think my fav, by far, is on my salad.  Here is a picture of the most awesome salad I had the other night:

If that doesn’t just look like Summer, I don’t know what does.  In that salad was:

  • Spring Mix
  • chickpeas
  • tomatoes
  • cucumber
  • zucchini
  • carrots
  • pine nuts
  • feta cheese
  • champagne grapes, the star!
  • Light Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing finished this off perfectly & helped bring together all the amazing flavors.

Product Review: Fiber One 50 Calorie Yogurt

I was sent a fun package & a coupon by My Blog Spark for Yoplait Fiber One 50 Calorie yogurt.  I got to try their new product.  I was really excited to try this product out!!  Not only was it only 50 calories, but gluten-free, to boot!!  I am so easily amused, I know.  ;) 

FiberOne Gift  Photo-Medium

I chose the Key Lime flavor.  Wow….this stuff was pretty good!  Non-fat, 50 calories & 5 grams of fiber!!  The real test was Jon….if he likes it, you know it rocks! ;)  LOL!  It passed the “Jon” test!  He ate the other 3 in the package before I could get to them!!  These are great for a quick afternoon snack to hold you over until dinner or even after dinner as a nice little dessert treat.

It is also a good source of calcium and vitamins A and D, making this an all-around great choice for dieters and those watching their weight. Each cup includes the creamy, delicious taste you expect from Yoplait, and you don’t have to feel guilty about enjoying it. Fiber One is available in a variety of flavors including, Strawberry, Peach, Vanilla and Key Lime Pie (see what Hungry Girl thinks about the new yogurt:
