Organic Powdered Peanut Butter

Yes, you read that correct- I just tried Just Great Stuff Organic Powdered Peanut Butter! OMG! What a wonderful idea!!!!!
You make what you want and one less jar to have in the refrigerator. Half the amount of fat compared to regular peanut better and no oils!!!! Love!! Its perfect for traveling, just take the powder and no need to worry about keeping it cold once opened. So I put it to the taste test- 2 tablespoons of powder to 1 tablespoon of water.

Above you can see in the first photo, my water-powder mix and second photo is what the powder in the jar looks like. Get to mixing now!!

So I dipped my fuji apples into my peanut butter and it tasted just like any peanut butter I've ever had and maybe better because I knew I was taking in half the calories and not compromising on the taste!! The name says it all- It's Just Great Stuff!!

La Colombe Coffee

So I have been on a coffee kick recently. Trying all different kinds and trying to work my magic with the french press. My boss recommended to me that I try La Colombe in Philadelphia,PA.
This shop doesn't have a menu when you walk in and the line moves quickly with "regular" customers. They specialize in drip coffee and esspresso. You really can't go wrong with anything you chose. I had a latte with dark chocolate that was unsweetened. It was so smooth. Makes me want more just thinking about it. 

Noosa Yoghurt

Being in Whole Foods Market all the time I see tons of products I always want to try! I've been eyeing up this yoghurt for some time and finally caved in to trying it! I wanted to know what the hype was about Noosa Yoghurt!
A little back story on this yoghurt-they are originally from Australia and now the makers live in Colorado. This yoghurt is super creamy-I've never tasted anything like it. Recently, I pretty much gave up on "regular" yogurt and switched to greek. This was defiantly a treat-almost like a pudding.

This yoghurt is 2 servings so I tried to mix up the fruit and scoop out what I was eating for one serving. I rather have a one serving size cup, but I could have ate the whole thing myself it was so tasty. If your looking for something new, give Noosa a try!

Distrito-Modern Mexican

Last week I checked off another eatery on my long list of places to try at-Distrito in the University City area in Philadelphia, Pa. This restaurant is another great one in the Garces Restaurant Group-an Iron Chef winner!

My mom and I enjoyed lunch there because we read online about a great lunch deal-$15 for your drink, and 2 courses. We decided this would be great for us to pick 4 different things to share. For our first course we got the traditional guacamole with cojita cheese and chilango chop salad. And they give you free chips and salsa when you first get seated.

So our first courses were awesome. Now lets get to the second dishes- Mahi Mahi Tacos and Huarche de Hongos. The fish tacos were small, but delicious. The second dish (I'm not going to pretend I know how to say it properly) was kind of like a flatbread with cheese and mushrooms-awesome. It's much more complex and tastes great!!!

Adding to the food is the atmosphere-which to me just makes this place over the top. Its bright pink inside and has some really fun seating options. If you love Mexican food I highly recommend this place. Next time I will be trying some of their margaritas!!
