Best snack ever.

21 Sep

I’ve been laid up for several days now. My leg was a little worse than I thought, especially after I walked around on it for a week, in heels half the time. So I don’t have any exercise to report at the moment, but I did find something that I thought some of you would appreciate: a tasty, vegetarian source of LOTS of protein.

I’m not a fan of industrial yogurts. They tend to be packed with sugar and dyes and all sorts of nasties. (Tip: if it’s still good two weeks after the expiration date, it’s got more preservatives in it than your body will know what to do with.) But I was recently introduced to Chobani, an all natural greek yogurt. Eight ounces (big serving size) of the vanilla yogurt has 22g of protein, 18g carbs, 17g sugar, 100mg sodium. Calories? 170. None from fat.

To make it even better, it’s freaking delicious. Put some honey or fruit on it and it’s like dessert. If you can find it at your grocery store, try it.

Grow Green Onions in your kitchen

15 Mar

A while back I was reading random blogs across the net and happened to land on an interesting article over at Urban Organic Gardner. ‘Growing Green Onions From Green Onions in Your Kitchen

Essentially you ‘re-grow’ green onions after each use. I remembered as a kid, growing the roots on a potato in a cup of water  so I figured why not give this a try.

My wife and I used our green onions, then gave it a shot; sure enough, it worked:

I know it won’t last too many more times, but we’re now on the 3rd grow for this particular set of onions, and they still taste good.

Give it a try!

Have you tried something similar? We’d like to hear about it in the comments.
