Here’s a recent post from my product review blog: My Real Life Reviews with some important information about questionable processing methods/ingredients used in a number of popular nutritional/snack bars. 😦 Also includes links to some homemade alternatives for making your own snack bars that are: easy to make, healthier, oh so tasty and cheaper too.
And another “eye-opener” on this topic from: Natural News
It really is worth the time and effort to make as much as you can “from scratch” whenever possible and for so many reasons! 🙂
If you have a good recipe for a homemade snack/nutritional bar, please share a link if you can!
Happy Snacking, 🙂 AND Buyer Beware! 😦
With BBQ season just around the corner, I’ve been thinking about burgers, hot dogs, buns…and healthier alternatives for all of them.
Today at my product review blog, I’m posting a review of Sol Cuisine Mushroom Rice Burgers.
This was a product I liked until I received an email from their company yesterday, with some “details” about their production process that I am NOT impressed or happy with.
Stop by My Real Life Reviews to read the full review. Suffice to say, sometimes even reading labels and checking information online is NOT enough. 😦 This company has lost a long-time customer, that’s for sure.
On a more positive note, it’s definitely doable to make a lot of the “basics” like veggie and (yes…) meat burgers and buns to go with them, from scratch.
These are my all-time fav burger buns:
Bread-Machine Rosemary Flax Buns
and not just because they are my own recipe. 😉
If you’ve never made your own burger and hot dog buns, this is definitely an easy way to get started. And if you aren’t a fan of rosemary, you can definitely leave it out.
A burger is JUST a burger, without a great bun to go with it!
I’m amazed at how many people who seem to be so particular about the burgers they buy or make , spend lots of $$$ on all sorts of toppings, but don’t pay any attention to the quality of buns they use; usually ending up with the cheapo, white-bread, soggy kind that are absolutely tasteless!
It’s not right and it’s not necessary. 😉
Here’s the link to the complete recipe for these delicious and oh so easy to make buns
If you give these buns a try, do let me know how you like them!
And on the topic of all things burger, what is your fav, absolutely MUST have topping ?
Mine is: dill pickles, sliced very thin and lots of them. Yummm….
Happy Baking and BBQ! 🙂
PS: On a completely unrelated topic, I am testing the waters with another blog idea (just what I need, another blog) 😉
This would be a weekly creative prompt blog.
