I hope you’re having a great day! Mine is better than yesterday! I seriously think the weather here is getting to me!
Today I tried two new things!
Remember WAYY back when, when I tried Amazing Grass for the first time and absolutely hated it? Well I still had a packet of the chocolate superfood powder from when I ordered that sampler. I decided to give it another try! However, this time I decided to try less. So instead of dumping the whole packet in my green monster, I sprinkled about a fourth of the packet in.
It was delicious! The gritiness that I hated the first time around wasn’t there, and the chocolatey-ness was great! I’m not sure I’ll keep buying it just because it’s expensive… when I’m rollin’ in the dough, I would definitely consider adding it to my smoothies more regularly.
Are you a fan of Amazing Grass?
The second new thing I tried was Kikkoman Ponzu, which is a citrus seasoned soy sauce. I got this a few weeks ago as part of the Food Buzz Tastemakers program.
I’m running low on groceries so I pulled together a bunch of random ingredients to make a delicious stir fry!
Zucchini Stir Fry
1/2 onion, sliced
1/2 tsp chopped ginger
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 zucchini, diced
1 tsp Trader Joe’s Soyaki
2 tsp Kikkoman Ponzu
Pepper to taste
Add the onions to a nonstick pan (sprayed with olive oil or any oil you prefer) and cook for a few minutes. Add garlic and ginger, cook for 1 minute. Add zucchini, sauces and pepper, cook for a few more minutes until tender. Serve with noodles or rice.
This would be great with some pineapple chunks in there too! Maybe some nuts?
I enjoyed mine with Trader Joe’s Harvest Grain Mix that I’ve had since about August… Finally time to use it up! And a Morningstar Veggie Patty for some added protein.
The Kikkoman sauce was really good. Since I didn’t try it on its own, it tasted somewhat like regular soy sauce but with a tiny kick. Worth a try!
Now I’m off to read and then head to class! Have a great afternoon/evening!
Tomorrow is Friday!!! WOOO!!!
