Sunday Search

How is it already Sunday?  The weekend is flying by.

I’m taking a page out of Monica’s book and highlighting a few of the search terms that brought folks to the blog.

In no particular order…

1.  Does Michael Phelps have a girlfriend 2012?  I don’t know and the answer isn’t here!

2.  Missy Franklin:  Missy Franklin shoulder wide; Missy Franklin height; Missy Franklin size 13 feet.  On Friday I featured a story about her build and yes–she’s tall, has wide shoulders, and size 13 feet.  Tall girls with size 11-13 feet unite.

3.  Circulation of apples.  Hmmm…I’m stumped.

4.  Nicole’s Nummies.  I hope they weren’t disappointed when they read that is the name of my would-be Food Network show.

5.  Show me a recipe for bran muffins, walnuts, oats, applesause, carrots.  Certainly.

Is anyone else up early watching the Women’s Marathon?  Those poor ladies having to pound out 26.2 miles in rain, fog, wind.  They are cruising through London at a very fast pace.  

Good Karma Flax Milk

Happy First Day of Spring. It’s exciting to see flowers and blue skies.  I hope I don’t see more snow!

Hello Spring!

Back in January the nice people at Good Karma Foods let me sample their new, all-natural Flax Milk.  I was excited to try something new and break away from almond milk for a while!

The Good Karma Flax Milk line includes three flavors: Original, Unsweetened and Vanilla. Each serving delivers 1200mg of Omega-3, an essential fatty acid that has been shown to help prevent heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes.

Good Karma Flax Milk is made from natural ingredients like cold pressed, unrefined flax seed oil and all three varieties are:  lactose & dairy free, gluten and soy free, as rich in calcium as dairy milk, low-calorie, have 0 cholesterol, are kosher, vegan, and non-GMO.  Sounds great, right?

I enjoyed all three varieties but my favorite was the unsweetened.  I stick to unsweetened, plain non-dairy milk as I mainly use it in my coffee, smoothies, and baked-goods.  One thing I loved about using Flax Milk in my AM coffee–it blended very well and didn’t end up separating and sitting on the bottom of my mug as almond milk tends to do.

The vanilla was perfect for baking–I used it in my healthy birthday cake and oat bran breakfast muffins.

My nephew Luke helped serve as a taste-tester and loved the vanilla.  He said it tasted like “liquid ice-cream”, was “flavorful and vanilla-y”, and was “better than milk!”  Kid tested and approved.

 

 

 

Another really neat thing about Good Karma Foods is that they are based in Prairie Du Sac, Wisconsin.
