What’s really in that sweetener?

 

Artificial-sweetener
I have a teensy weensy obsession with coffee (as if you didn’t already know that from posts like this one and this one).

I also prefer that my coffee taste like a candy bar, so I tend to load it up with flavored creamers and fake sugar. Naughty. Although I do consider myself a bit of a health nut, I just can’t seem to break this habit and switch to black coffee. Bitter… icky…boring…ugh. Can’t do it.

My little cancer packet of choice has always been Sweet ‘N Low, as it tends to be the sweetest of the many brands in the “fake sugar” category. I wanted to fully understand my addiction, so I did a little research on the various artificial sweeteners and their effects.

  • The artificial sweetener in Sweet ‘N low is saccharine, which is an organic molecule created out of petroleum (whoa) and introduced in the early 20th century. In the ‘70’s, animal studies found that it caused cancer in several organs and a warning was added to the label. This warning has since been removed but the stigma remains that saccharine is not completely safe for consumption.
  • If you’re more of a NutraSweet or Equal fan, your artificial sweetener of choice is Aspartame, which is a combination of phenylalanine and aspartic acid with methanol (2 amino acids). The FDA has done a number of safety evaluations of Aspartame, and reports have come back free and clear. However, other studies have shown that this sweetener may be an “excitotoxin”, like MSG, which can cause brain damage.
  • Splenda, which is made from Sucralose, may seem to be the least offensive of these first 3 little artificial devils. Sucralose is essentially sugar which has been chemically refined so that our bodies are unable to metabolize it. Thus, it’s calorie-free. Sucralose is also 600 (!) times sweeter than regular sugar.
  • Finally, there’s stevia, which is a calorie free, herb-based sweetener. There’s nothing artificial about it, which immediately gives it a vote up in my book. A number of brands have popped up, including Truvia, Pure Via, Sweet Leaf, Steviva, etc. Stevia is safe for diabetics – it will not spike your insulin levels.

 

One tidbit I was already familiar with is the fact that many artificial sweeteners “trick” your body into thinking it’s getting sugar. According to MaximizedLiving.com, fatty tissues can perceive sweetness, and although artificial sweeteners have no calories, they can cause your metabolism to slow. This tricks your brain into eating even more calories, which will then be stored as fat. So that mid-afternoon Diet Coke may not be so harmless after all.

 

The Verdict

Reading up on the various types of artificial sweeteners was a real eye-opener form me. Ideally, we would be able to appreciate our coffee, tea, and baked goods without the aid of sugar or other sweeteners (right!). Unfortunately for many of us, the sweetness is what makes these foods and beverages enjoyable. That tasty morning coffee is one of my favorite reasons to get out of bed in the morning 🙂

For me, it comes down to choosing the lesser of several “evils”. Given the many studies that have pronounced saccharine and aspartame unsafe, I decided to switch my daily sweetener to Stevia (or more specifically, Truvia brand). However, it’s important to read the labels carefully. Many brands contain additives (even Truvia is blended with erythritol – a sugar alcohol). If you’ve just gotta sweeten, pure Stevia would be ideal, along with other natural, unprocessed sweeteners such as honey and agave nectar. I do feel better knowing that the first thing I put in my body every morning is not chemically processed. See ya later, Sweet ‘N Low.

 

What’s your favorite sweetener?

After Dinner Coffee-Cube Cocktail

coffee cube cocktail

 

I’m officially getting old. After a big family meal where overeating is inevitable, I could really use a nap. I’m finally beginning to understand why old people always need a cup of coffee after dinner to level themselves back out (or at least stay awake long enough to eat dessert).

Personally, I’m a bigger fan of the after-dinner drink. Just ask my friends about my go-to “banana Russian”. It’s life-changing, I promise. But for those days when you just need a little caffeine boost after dinner, I bring you the coffee-cube cocktail.

The prep work: make a pot of coffee and pour it into ice cube trays. It should fill about 2 trays. I used Dunkin’ Donuts French vanilla. Because, well, it’s the bomb.

Wait for your freezer to do it’s magic.

After dinner, put 4-5 cubes in your glass and add the following:

–          1 ½ oz Cake flavored vodka

–          1 ½ oz Kahlua

–          2 oz Bailey’s

 

I suppose the proper name for this might be a “coffee-cube cake butterfly”, but that doesn’t roll off the tongue very well.  If it sounds a little dangerous, you could always sub out the Bailey’s for milk. But then it would be called a “coffee-cube cake Russian”.

Call it whatever you want. I call it delicious.

 

Bonus: Unlike ice cubes that water down your drink as they melt, the coffee cubes just make it taste better! Enjoy!

Foodie Pen Pals – November


Yet another box full of yummy goodies on my doorstep. I’m such a lucky lady.

This month I was paired up with Lorraine, who sent me the most snack-alicious box ever. Filled with TONS of paleo-friendly munchies. And from one of my favorite places on earth, no less – Trader Joe’s 🙂

1. Justin’s Honey Almond Butter – purrrrfect. We’ve been moving away from peanut butter and eating almond butter instead, so I’ve been trying out different brands. Mmm.

2. All natural teriyaki turkey jerkey – I blinked and the whole bag was gone. I won’t even blame this one on the hubs. Yup, all me.

3. Dark chocolate bar with cranberries and almonds – It’s almost as if Lorraine came to my house and snooped around in my cabinets before she went shopping for me. We LOVE dark chocolate. Even moreso when there’s stuff inside.

4. Roasted coconut chips – HE-LLO new obsession!  These were also completely gone before I knew it. Light and sweet and slightly salty….I think I had a cocogasm.

6. Mixed nuts and cranberries. Perfect mid-morning snack.

7. Cashew cookie Larabar – This was my first Larabar. I flipped it over to look at the ingredients and couldn’t find it. Then I discovered it tucked under the flap. Ingredients: Cashews and dates. Well, that’s why I couldn’t find it. It wasn’t 14 lines long filled with a bunch of junk I can’t pronounce. Dang. THAT is what I call clean eating. These things pack in a TON of flavor without any processed ingredients. I will absolutely be buying Larabars in the future – I can’t wait to try their other flavors!

8. Roasted seaweed snack – I had actually mailed these out to my foodie pen pal earlier this summer, but had never tried them out myself. They are initially kinda fishy tasting, but surprisingly quite addictive. A great low-cal snack if you’re craving salt. The entire container only contains 60 calories.

9. Wheat Grass and Orange Dreamsicle superfood drink powders – These support energy levels and immune function. Super clean and healthy – I have yet to try them out but am intrigued…

 

The verdict? The best in box award goes to….A TIE between the Roasted Coconut Chips and the Cashew Cookie Larabar. If you’ve never had them, go to Trader Joe’s and pick them up before I raid every store in the tri-state area.

THANK YOU, Lorraine, for a great box full of HEALTHY paleo snacks! I seriously could not have created a more perfect combo of foods myself.

…And a special thanks to Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean for coordinating!

Post-Thanksgiving Leftover Egg Bake

Turkey. Gravy. Stuffing. Corn. All in their nice individual Tupperware containers taking up the entire fridge for the week after Turkey Day. But you stuffed yourself silly on Thursday and want something different. So there it sits. Maybe it makes its way into the freezer, only to get heated up in January or tossed due to freezer burn.

Last year, we had about 30 friends over for our first-ever “Friendsgiving” celebration. We had SO MANY FREAKING LEFTOVERS that we couldn’t even fit them all in our house (including our chest freezer). Luckily there was a snowstorm and it was cold enough to leave the food outside. The next morning, we decided to experiment with a new way to use up the leftover goodies.

Enter, the Post-Thanksgiving Leftover Egg Bake.

Remember that episode of Friends – the one where Rachel makes a trifle, and the pages get stuck together and she mixes together beef, jam, and some other horrendous combinations of food?  Well, this is sorta like that, only it actually tastes good.

So pull out your leftovers and let’s get started.

Here’s an example:

Ingredients

Turkey
Croissants
Gravy
Stuffing
Corn
Mashed potatoes
Green beans
8-12 eggs
Milk
Salt & pepper
Shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Grease a 9×13 baking dish.

Pull apart croissants and cover the bottom of the dish.

Top croissants with shredded turkey, gravy, corn, stuffing, mashed potatoes, eggs, or whatever else you have on-hand.

Beat eggs, mix in about ¼ cup of milk, salt, and pepper to taste.

Pour egg mixture over leftovers.

Top with 1-2 cups of shredded cheddar and bake 30-45 minutes or until eggs are set.

Eat. Rejoice. Give thanks.

Do you have a similar day-after-turkey-day tradition? Did my creation miss any key Thanksgiving leftover ingredients?

Healthier Alternatives to your Coffee Shop Obsession



News flash: I am a coffee FREAK. And one of the vices I just can’t seem to break is that I love it laden with sugar and cream. Although I’ve limited myself to just one Caribou Coffee run per week, I have also learned that there are several lower-calorie options for those of us that just can’t lay off the caffeine.

The next time you’re at the coffee shop register, try one of these alternatives instead:

You Love: Frappucinos
Then try this: Order an iced coffee with a sugar free flavor. Most coffee shops have at least 3 or 4 sugar free flavors such as vanilla, hazelnut, caramel, etc. Also, ask for it without whipped cream and chocolate on top and save yourself about 100 calories!

You Love: Mochas and their creamy, chocolat-y goodness
Then try this: There’s really no getting around this one, as a mocha has got to contain chocolate. But you can reduce the calorie count by ordering it with skim milk, no whip, and a sugar free flavor. And you know how there’s always extra chocolate at the bottom of the cup? Order it with ½ the amount of chocolate – you probably won’t even notice the difference, but the scale will.

You Love: Lattes and/or Cappuccinos
Then try this: These are not quite as bad as the two above options, as they contain just espresso and steamed milk. Ask for it with skim or soy milk instead and save up to 10 grams of saturated fat and 100 calories.

You Love: Chai Tea Lattes
Then try this: Chai Lattes contain whole milk and honey. Reduce calories and fat by ordering it with skim or soy. Or better yet, try green or black tea instead for a boost of antioxidants.

You Love: Coffee with cream and sugar
Then try this: Coffee doesn’t have to be all bad, even for those of us with a sweet tooth. Add a dash of skim milk and a packet of Truvia/Stevia to your daily brew, and you’ll only take in a negligible number of calories. Bonus: a cup of coffee 1-2 hours before exercise has been shown to increase performance!

 


What other coffee shop hacks am I missing?  Let me know in the comments below!

Foodie Pen Pals – Halloween Edition


 

 

BOO!

Don’t be scared, it’s just me.

Know what else it is? Time for Foodie Pen Pals, Halloween edition!

This time around, I was paired up with Jenna, who blogs about pets over at Time out Truffles. Stop by and give her blog 2 paws up.

Jenna sent me some yummy Halloween-themed (and some non-themed) grub this month!

 

 

 

  1. Pumpkin seeds – what a fabulous, seasonal (and paleo-friendly) snack! These came in handy for an on-the-go, between-jobs snack. Thanks for keeping my hunger in check, J-dog. Can I call you J-dog?
  2. White chocolate candy corn M&Ms – holy teeth-rotting goodness, batman. This has to be one of the sweetest candies I have ever tried. Deliciously naughty.
  3. Brianna’s Home Style Poppy Seed dressing – I LOVE trying new dressings and this one hit the nail on the head. Very flavorful and made from all-natural ingredients.
  4. Celestial Seasonings Perfectly Pear White Tea – the hubs is a big tea drinker and made an “ooooooh” noise when I told him about this.
  5. Apple of my London Eye chutney – talk about an awesomely unique addition to this box! This was by far my favorite item. It contains apples, sugar, malt vinegar, onions, raisins, herbs and spices. It is SO tasty and more savory than sweet. Any suggestions as to what I should put this on? I’m thinking just added to celery as a snack!
  6. Grilled & marinated asparagus spears – I love asparagus. This will be tasty cut up and added to my daily salads, or heated up for a quick side with dinner.
  7. Caramel Apple Filled Werthers – thanks Jenna, I’m now completely addicted to these. I actually didn’t think I’d like them at first, but changed my mind immediately. They are totally irresistible and I scarfed the whole bag in 2 days.

Thanks again, Jenna, for such a frighteningly awesome Halloween goodie box!

…And a special thanks to Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean for coordinating!

Foodie Pen Pals – September


It’s foodie pen pals time again!

This time around, I was paired up with Patti, who blogs over at Heavy Girl to Healthy Girl, and has lost 112 lbs through healthy eating and exercise. WOW! 

Side note: My foodie pen pal for the month was April, who blogs over at April’s Mooseathon. Wanna see what I mailed to April this month?  Head over to her blog and check out her Foodie Pen Pals post!

 ****************************************************************

This month, Patti sent me a super unique and fun package!

1. I mentioned to her that I eat lots of salads and love to try unique and fun salad dressings. She sent me Ken’s Light Raspberry Walnut dressing. mmmmmmm….

2. Fruit and spice flavored tea. I am trying to get into drinking tea (I currently drink WAY too much coffee). This will be great, because I really can only do the sweet or highly flavored teas.

3. Organic spice grinders – one pesto and the other a tuscan spice mix. We have already used these several times in soups and in our ground beef/veggie dinner staple.

4. A set of mini candles, which she says help her relax…agreed!

5. here’s the kicker – Patti sent me weightlifting gloves – whaaaat?  How awesome is she? Somehow she read my mind, because I’ve been meaning to get a pair of these for quite some time now.

Thanks again to Patti for the fun goodies 🙂

Foodie Pen Pals – August

 
This is my 2nd month as a foodie pen pal and I have to say…it is so dang FUN receiving goodies on your doorstep every month!

This time around, I was paired up with Sally, who blogs over at Such Great Bites. Stop by and give her blog a high-five.

Side note: My foodie pen pal for the month was Rachael, who blogs over at Rubber Cowgirl. Wanna see what I mailed to Rachael this month?  Head over to her blog and check out her Foodie Pen Pals post!

 ****************************************************************

Sally….you rock my world.

This girl seriously knows how to shop!  I absolutely LOVED this box of food. Check out all of the great stuff I got!

  1. Mojo and Luna bars. These are awesome to have on-hand as a mid-morning snack or for some energy before a post-work long run.
  2. Trader Joe’s Pineapple Salsa. I know EXACTLY what we’ll be doing with this. Pork chops on the grill topped with pineapple salsa. Yum.
  3. Roasted bell peppers. It’s like this girl can read my mind. These are so tasty and versatile. I’ll be using them in Saturday morning egg scrambles, in soups, and there may even be a new dip recipe milling around in my brain. Hmmmm….
  4. Misty’s all-purpose seasoning. Perfect for, um, everything. ‘nuff said.
  5. Sweet plantain chips. These were devoured in about 2.2 seconds. Apparently, they rock. I’m going to have to find myself a few more bags of these in a hurry.
  6. Dorothy Lynch dressing. I have seen this in the grocery store and it piqued my interest but I had never bought it. I eat salads almost every day for lunch and am always looking for new tasty dressings. Love this stuff – I can see many different uses for it too.
  7. Wasabi almonds. Impeccable choice, since the hubs and I go through about 2lbs of almonds a week.

Thanks to Sally for the killer box of YUM!

…And a special thanks to Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean for coordinating!

Ashley’s State Fair Food Wish List 2012


The Minnesota State Fair is one of our must-do activities each summer. Our primary goal is to find all of the wacky foods on our list.  With over 450 different foods and more than 60 of them on a stick, it’s one big artery-clogging haven for gluttony.

 

On Sunday, we’re going to join the nearly 2 million other visitors at the State Fair. After the food, the  2nd most fun part about the fair is the people-watching. Some seriously interesting people come out of the woodwork to gawk at farm animals and ride the tilt-a-whirl every year. We have a WHOLE DAY to play this year…normally we go on a weekday evening and barely have enough time to find our deep fried goodness before things start to shut down. I fully intend on rides, swine barns, music, beer, and a sunburn this time around! But this post is about food, so I digress…

The Minnesota State Fair website has a handy dandy little “Food Finder” tool that helps nerds like me figure out what they want in advance. Every year, I pick out some funky new foods I want to try. Here are my choices…I’ll have to do a follow-up post and let you know if my belly was big enough to fit all of this stuff.

 

Fair Food #1: Gluten Free Risotto Poppers from French Meadow Bakery & Café.

–       Located on Carnes Ave. & Underwood St., across from WCCO Radio


Fair Food #2: Porcupine Meatballs on a Stick from Giggles Campfire Grill (pork meatballs with wild rice)

–       Located at Cooper St. & Lee Ave. in The North Woods

Fair Food #3: Eggplant Caramelos (tacos) from Sonora Grill

–       Located at Midtown Global Market inside the Bazaar, east wall

Fair Food #4: Bruschetta Bites from MN Wine Country

–       Located on the West side of Underwood between Carnes and Judson

 

Fair Food #5: Sweeties Delight (Mashed Sweet Potatoes on a Stick) from Potato Man and Sweetie

–       Located on the West side of Liggett, south of the Midway

 

Fair Food #6: Red Velvet Funnel Cake from Smoothies & Jurassic

–       Located on Murphy Ave. across from Pet Center

 

BONUS FOODS:

These are foods that we have tried before, but are so insanely good we absolutely CANNOT leave without eating them. It would be a crime.

–       Sweet Martha’s Cookies: a huge bucket of them. They are so soft and greasy. I guarantee my husband will have eaten at least half the bucket before we get home. Located on the South side of Carnes between Nelson and Underwood

–       Grilled Corn on the Cob: Located on the southeast corner of Nelson and Dan Patch

–       Pulled Turkey Sandwich from Turkey to Go. OHMYGOODNESS. If I could eat only one fair food item, this would be it. I don’t know if it’s marinated in a bucket of butter or what, but it sure tastes like it. Juicy, delicious turkey. Mmmmmm…Located on the East side of Clough between Judson and Carnes.

 

What are YOUR favorite fair foods?  Are there any that are not on my list that I should really try this year? Am I going to have a coronary before I get home on Sunday?

“Last Resort” Meals

Everyone is BUSY. We don’t always have time to put together an amazing new recipe every night of the week. But that doesn’t mean you should add the pizza joint to your speed dial. By keeping a few simple, “last resort” items in your fridge/freezer, you can throw together a healthy dinner in no time flat.

We’re lucky. My stepdad is an avid hunter, so we almost always have maple venison sausage in our chest freezer just waiting to be eaten (thank you, Kelly!). Plus, we feed our dog a raw diet so there are always eggs in the fridge. This means that even if we’re way past due for a grocery run, this balanced dinner can be thrown together nearly any day of the week. It’s not just for breakfast anymore, people.

There’s really no need for a recipe here, as I think we all know how to cook eggs. We just boil up the sausage and scrambled the eggs with some hot sauce – Add in some spinach and red, yellow, and orange peppers – and you’ve got yourself a colorful, tasty meal! Done in about 10 minutes.

What are your favorite “last resort” meals? Do you keep certain food items in the freezer for dinner “emergencies”?
