Food Finds

Vegetti

My grandmother got me a Veggetti and it was the best purchase ever. I would have never thought I’d eat zucchini, let alone two nights in a row. I am so happy I came across it. Some other things I came across this week were:

America’s Best New Restaurants.

A new venue for restaurants.

Momofuku is heading to DC. Another reason to take a trip there soon!

Genius.

For a more ordered life, organize like a chef.

WHAT?? Hamersley’s in Boston is closing this fall.

Would you eat jellyfish maki?

Top 10 reasons to go to Portland, ME.

Wouldn’t this be nice?

What food finds have you come across this week?

‘Nacho Friend

Ladies, gentlemen, foodies and gourmands, I introduce you to the workplace Bite Club.

I opened my email to find the below message:

“So here’s how it got started: last week, a coworker started talking some smack about making the best Mexican food. Being a dedicated student of the taco arts, I could not abide by the assertion. Neither could a few others; our gauntlet throwing and posturing could get us only so far.

So here’s how it gets settled: a winner-take-all food fight of corporate proportions to which you are all invited and can participate. The four of us will prepare our best Mexican fare, pack it up and clandestinely smuggle it into the office next Friday. We’ll convene at a secret location, exchange trash talk and then let our food do the talking for us. You are welcome to submit your own dishes to our gastronomical colosseum.

The winner earns unlimited cuisine-based bragging rights for a period of time not exceeding 30 days, whereupon “the gauntlet” may once again be thrown. A secondary prize will be awarded for both quantity and quality of taco, nacho, jalapeño and other food-related puns.

In the immortal words of Bonnie Raitt, ‘let’s give them something to taco’bout’ ”

Have you ever had an office cook off competition? 

How to Make an Acai Bowl

Acai Bowl

I have recently been on a health craze binge. (Or at least am trying to be; there are too many office goodies that have hindered the balance of this. I have also been testing things, so I cannot solely point the finger at others. However, I am trying to keep from indulging). One thing I love to do as a sweet treat is an acai bowl. I had the lucky event of meeting Mike via Yelp and among great food and restaurant conversation, he had a great recipe to share.

ACAI BOWL

Ingredients

  • 1 Sambazon Sweetened Smoothie Pack 
  • Half cup of blueberries
  • Tablespoon of almond butter
  • Half a banana
  • 2 tablespoons of a juice (helps with blending)
  • 2 tablespoons protein powder (optional)

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in blender
  2. Blend
  3. Top bowl with your own garnish. I usually do granola, strawberries (berries), and a decent amount of honey.

What is your favorite healthy go-to snack?
