This pizza is an example of a product trying way too hard to be everything. One pizza has over 5 servings of vegetables, it's gluten free, contains kale, papaya, quinoa, guava, cauliflower, butternut squash, broccoli, artichoke, beets and carrots. One slice, which is about one third of the pizza is 310 calories, 13 grams of fat and 13 grams of protein. So what's the problem? The taste! It doesn't taste like a pizza, the picture on the front looks nothing like what's in the box and while we followed the directions for a conventional oven the pizza crust was soft and very chewy and also it's one of the first times we cooked a pizza that had no aroma.

Years ago I was addicted to Godiva's chocolate covered cherries, this has made me change my allegiance, I love these. Dried cherries dipped in 70% cacao dark chocolate. The flavor and the mouthfeel are great. The only concern I would have is that I can't stop eating them. Stoneridge is a family company which grows their own fruit all in Washington state. About 10 of these cherries are 107 calories, 8 grams of fat and 18 grams of naturally occurring and added sugars, but oh so worth it.

No these are not mini onion rings, these are just 100% real parmesan cheese coated with quinoa and oat bran and organic brown rice. They're crispy, they are excellent in taste. Typically cheese snacks like this have the cheese flavor so overpowering that you really can’t enjoy, but not this one, it's a clean parmesan flavor. One package, which is about 14 pieces is 10 grams of protein, just 150 calories and 8 grams of fat. I could see having these as a snack, putting them out instead of pretzels or even sprinkling them on a salad.

This is nothing like those chex-type of other cereals. The recipe of whole wheat, rice, corn flour and fiber is nice and crunchy and satisfying and who could argue that that brown sugar and maple syrup doesn't make everything better? This brand has been one of the pioneers for natural foods and continues to produce some of the best foods on the market. 9 grams of sugars and 6 grams of dietary fiber per serving. How do they taste? Like one nourishing, delicious breakfast cereal should.

Finally a hot sauce that doesn't contain ketchup or any sugars as ingredients. This is the pure stuff, just white vinegar, red chile and habanero peppers with carrots, onion and salt. The burn is immediate and hot and the flavor is delicious. I could see adding this as a drizzle on top of meat, fish or chicken, mixing it in soups and sauces to give them a zip and of course using it to make the perfect Bloody Mary. every kitchen needs a bottle!
