Foodie Friday

I learned some new things this week that I wanted to share;
  1. I read about food, like, ALOT.  I made some butternut squash pancakes the other day, and thinking about my past pancake recipes, wondering why they turned out so brown.  I started thinking it was the almond meal, but after a few minutes of Googling, I realized it was my overuse of baking soda.  This article helped me realize the error of my ways.  I switched up my baking soda/powder ratio, and the next batch of pancakes came out superb. 
  2. I love reading other food blogs, I will read anything.  I found two recently that I really like.
    • What This Foodie Eats - the author is in the middle of a Whole30 and has some inspiring recipes and just general info on what she eats on a daily basis.  I don't know why I find what other people eat so interesting.
    • Rawified - It blows me away that this girl is only 15.  The recipes are amazing, and RAW, which is even more amazing.  And she lives on a farm, awesome!
  3. Kit's Organic Fruit and Nut Bar -  Clifbar's answer to the Larabar, but way better!  I had the Almond Berry and Chocolate Coconut, both were delicious.  The texture is different than a Larabar, and I find the flavor to be a bit less fake (even though I know there is nothing fake), and more potent.  Only downside is they are more expensive than a Larabar, luckily Sprouts had them 4/$5.  I stocked up.
