That’s how I felt after meeting with my advisors yesterday! Ekk…. these people know how to squeeze me to the edge 😕 But in a good way, I don’t blame them and I would probably thank them in the future. 🙂
Okay. Now to the spoiled part! I received these Crazy Richard’s PB on Tuesday! I’ve seen these in many blogs and really wanted to try them. Thanks Nanette for sending this to me! 😀
I got to try this one first
What makes it special? it’s 100% natural. There is only one ingredient in these bottles. PEANUTS! No oil, no salt, nothing, just peanuts! Can you get anymore more natural than this?
I thought I was going to find a dense hard PB (without the added oil), but look this… it’s not dense at all, it’s kind of liquid.
First testing: on oatmeal (obviously ;)).
Texture: EXTREMELY smooth! They really know how to grind it!
Flavor: Strong peanut flavor (worth the redundancy)
Taste: good, but personally I like nut butter with a touch of salt. Although I like its taste, but was not hooked because of lack of salt. But I can always add it myself. 😉
Coco’s rating: 4/5 (the lack of salt downgrade a point, but its smoothness is definitely a plus)
Next spoiled episode, which was a HUGE one. Dustin from Wildwoods contacted me on Monday and offered to send some samples. I told him that I am leaving next Tuesday, so I’d probably not be able to get them. Instead of putting me on hold, he sent it with OVERNIGHT shipping!!! Thank you Dustin, you really made me feel a spoiled girl! 😉
I tried the plain one first
Paired with key lime applesauce
Texture: firm, not creamy.
Flavor: strong in tofu.
Taste: don’t expect to taste anything like yogurt. It tastes like a tofu gel. Nothing spectacular. It’s not bad, just different.
Coco’s rating: 3/5.
Flavored ones have high sugar, just like standard yogurt.
Texture: is softer than plain one and a little creamier too.
Flavor: less strong in tofu.
Taste: it tastes better than the plain one, but a little too sweet for me to eat it plain. But it will be a great topping for oatmeal.
Coco’s rating: 4/5
The peach flavor is the best of the three. Because it’s a little savor, it makes it less sweet. 🙂
For dinner I made a scrambled tofu sauteed with “spinach fettuccini”
Sprouted tofu. According to their website, sprouted tofu helps digestion and enhance nutrition.
I used tahini and soy sauce to make the scrambled tofu.
Added frozen veggies and mushrooms.
This meal is INCREDIBLE!!! If you haven’t tried making stir-fry with tahini and soy sauce, try it! I don’t know how to describe it, but the flavor is soooo special!!! I don’t find anything special about the tofu. It’s not much different than others. But these fettucini pasta is REALLY good. For those of you who like shiritaki noodles, give this a try, it’s definitely better! Why? Because it doesn’t have that funny flavor that shiritaki noodles have if you don’t rinse them well, and also these are more like real pasta, it’s less rubbery. I’ll definitely buy these from now one! I’m really hooked. Coco’s rating: 5/5.
Dessert was NO KABOCHA but aduki coconut mouse and my favorite energy bar: Thrive Heart!
oh… I forgot to mention that if you order these cakes on their website, you’ll get 6 free in your first order and if you mention my blog, I’ll get 6 too! 😀
Day 2 of kabocha free was less painful! 😀
