Low Carb Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Fat Bombs

I must admit that I’m not on the keto diet. In fact, I was even skeptical of it at first. But I’ve had enough friends find success on keto for me to think there must really be something there. Plus, I love that people on keto don’t complain about keto. There are enough foods available on the diet to keep them satiated and not feeling grumpy — they’re still fun to hang out with! Not that other diets can make us cranky… or wait. Yes. Yes they do. My keto friends were feeling left out of the Everybody Craves page. Except for a few low carb smoothies, I hadn’t shown them much love. Time to change that. This recipe comes from my friend (and videographer!) Jess, who loves this recipe so much that when she accidentally let a baggie full of these melt in her hot car, she called it…

A vegan guide to condiments

What’s actually in wasabi anyway? Doesn’t soy sauce contain fish or something? When it comes to common condiments, sometimes their specific ingredients are a mystery to us. Condiments can pose a real problem for vegans or people looking to eat fewer animals products, so many will skip them entirely for a while or just stick to one or two they know to be safe. But since everyone loves to dip and dunk their food, that means no fun — and much less flavor. Here is a quick PETA-approved guide to show you which condiments are safe for vegans and which ones you should steer clear of. Vegan-Friendly condiments A1 Steak sauce A1 Steak sauce is delicious on grilled vegetables and sandwiches. If you’re vegan, no need to worry here. This flavorful sauce contains tomato purée, raisin paste, vinegar, sugar, salt, orange purée, and a blend of spices. Barbecue sauce With barbecue,…

10 foods that can substitute as cleaning supplies

Cleaning your house isn’t exactly fun, but you might be able to make it easier — or at least, more amusing — with one of these 10 foods substituting as cleaning supplies. You can save some money by not spending on expensive specialty products. Not to mention, you can avoid coming in contact with a ton of potentially harmful chemicals that store-bought brands typically contain. These tricks will help you keep more money in your wallet, and they support a healthier lifestyle. Who doesn’t want that? 1. Coca-Cola Coke isn’t just for sipping. The highly carbonated beverage contains phosphoric acid, citric acid, and carbonic acid — all which help it serve as a cleaning product substitute. Use it to take rust off of pots, remove, remove hard stains for inside the toilet bowl, restore shine to coins and jewelry, and get grease out of clothes. 2. Ketchup It’s might be…

Saucy Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken

I pretty much love anything if it’s covered in peanut sauce. The first time I tried Thai food, I couldn’t get over how delicious everything was — thanks in no small part to the salty sauce and crushed peanuts covering much of it. I went home and immediately tried to recreate the recipes. Soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, thai chili paste, chili flakes, tahini… the sauce recipes I was finding online required so many specialized ingredients. It was daunting. There had to be a better way. A Thai blogger laughed at my struggles I had posted online, and told me that the easiest way to pull off something close to the traditional Thai flavor was Hoisin sauce, peanut butter, and Sriracha. Genius! (Seriously, try this at home with a splash of water. It will by your new favorite dipping sauce.) Since then, I use the sauce for everything from toast to…

Here’s what you should have in your emergency food stockpile

Hurricane Lane dropped record-breaking heavy rains that battered Hawaii this week, but that’s likely to just be the beginning. Hurricane season is expected to run through November 30 this year, with September being the peak season for storms in the Atlantic. It’s alway best to be prepared — if not over prepared — for disasters like hurricanes, especially if you live in a high-risk area. Because you’re going to have limited supplies in the event of an emergency, it’s important to make each item in your stash count. FEMA suggests foods that require no refrigeration, water, or special cooking. Foods can also lift morale and give a feeling of security in times of stress, so leave room for a few comfort items, as well. Here are some foods suggestions that should be in your stash: 1. Water Of course water is first and foremost. FEMA recommends having one gallon of…

Reese’s offering $10K, free candy to its most ‘Outrageous’ fan

Do you love peanut butter and chocolate? We mean, really love it? To celebrate the launch of its new Reese’s Outrageous bar, the company is giving away $10,000 and a year’s supply of candy to one true fan. The Outrageous bar is similar to the Nutrageous bar, but it swaps out the peanuts with bits of tiny Reese’s Pieces. Food & Wine had the chance for an early taste test last year, and this is how they described it: “The core of the bar is Reese’s classic, salty peanut butter with a layer of caramel surrounding it. That’s all enrobed by chocolate dotted with dozens of mini Reese’s Pieces. The candy shells of the Pieces add an extra crunch without making the whole thing too crumbly. Perhaps most surprisingly, the Outrageous! bar is not all that sweet. It’s definitely a peanut butter lover’s candy.” To enter the contest, fans can post photos and…

15 Foods that Can Last Forever on your Shelf

Birds are chirping and green grass is growing. It’s all a sign to American households that it’s time for a much needed spring cleaning. But your annual overhaul shouldn’t be limited to your clothing closets. Chances are, your kitchen pantry could benefit from a little tidying too. Sure, you know you need to toss that stale box of cereal. And those graham crackers you left open last weekend surely should go, too. But many other items aren’t going to be as obvious. The expiration date food system can be confusing. There are as many as a dozen different ways processed food companies stamp their goods to tell us when to toss and when to keep — Sell By, Use By, Best Before. The list goes on. A new voluntary initiative is being led by two major trade associations, Food Marketing Institute (FMI) and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), that will streamline…

Treatment for peanut allergies could be coming this year

Finally a bit of good news for fearful parents everywhere — a treatment to help prevent serious allergic reactions to peanuts could be on its way. According to the Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), peanuts are one of the most common food allergies in the U.S., and its rate is still growing. The number of tree and nut allergies have tripled since 1997. But a new clinical trial is showing promising results, giving hope to affected individuals everywhere. California-based biotech company Aimmune Therapeutics, conducted a year-long study with nearly 500 children ages 4 to 17. Participants were given capsules of peanut flour, or a placebo powder for the control group, in gradually increasing amounts for six months. Then, they continues receiving that level of powder for an additional six months. Neither the doctors nor the participants knew which children were receiving the powder. By then end of the 12 months, 67% of…
