Pecan Butter with Cashews ~ @DailyGoodieBox @ArtisanaFoods #FreeSamples

Nut Butters are fairly new to my life. I mean I have had peanut butter my whole life, but I have just started branching out trying other nut butters. I love nuts for snacking, so why not try more of what you can do with those nuts?! Plus, nuts are great if you are trying to lower your cholesterol.

Luckily, this month, Daily Goodie Box sent a couple of samples of Artisana Organics Pecan Butter with Cashews . Right off the bat, I’m in. Love pecans and cashews, so instantly I’m intrigued.

So after tasting, I noticed it is not nearly as sweet as peanut butter. I really taste the individual flavors of both the pecan and the cashew. The cashew bits are very tiny and easy to chew. I would maybe pair this with a chocolate, to add a little sweetness to it. Adding it to a cracker may be too dry, but drizzle on some apple slices and I think you have something. Very tasty!

I would really like to try each of Artisana Organics nut butters. This is opening up a new world for me.

Maple, Pecans and Coconut Granola ~ @DailyGoodieBox #FreeSamples

Any granola lovers out there? I have always enjoyed granola in its many forms. I typically for for boring general type of granola but these days, there are so many different combinations, I wouldn’t know where to begin. Luckily, I didn’t have to make a choice. Daily Goodie Box sent a sample of Hudson Henry Baking Co Maple, Pecans and Coconut Granola.

To start, I love these ingredients individually. I am hopeful that I will enjoy the combination of all three together. Now when it comes to consuming granola, I like it by itself or in milk. I also love granola bars, but that’s not an option for this tasting.

After tasting it dry, I am already in love. The pecan, maple and coconut work very well together. Great crunch! I would definitely eat this just as is. Now, I can’t wait to try it with milk!

I passed the bag over to my husband and he couldn’t get enough. He laughed and said “Ha, you’re not getting back”. Well, he did end up passing it back and we are both LOVING the Hudson Henry Baking Co Maple, Pecans and Coconut Granola. I went straight to website to see how much it is, so we can get more and to see what other flavors are available. All of the flavors sound incredibly appealing to me. I may have to buy the one that has all of the flavors.

After tasting it with milk, well we ate it all. So I’ll have to buy more and see how it is with milk.

I would LOVE to blog my way through tasting all of the flavors of granola from Hudson Henry Baking Co !

@Crunchsters Beyond Bacon ~ @DailyGoodieBox #FreeSamples

I’m still new to the mung bean game, but this is the second product I have tried from Crunchsters (Thanks to Daily Goodie Box) and I really like them. The beyond bacon seasoning is quite tasty. I find myself going back for more and more shakes of these beans into my hand.

I would definitely be interested in trying any other flavor that Crunchsters carries. Two out of two so far and I’m really digging them.

Sprouted Mung Beans even have some health benefits:

@myknowbrainer Burnt Caramel Max Mallows ~ @DailyGoodieBox #FreeSamples

Any marshmallow lovers out there? If so, this may be the post for you. Have you heard of Max Mallows? I hadn’t until it showed up in my Daily Goodie Box. I like marshmallows, but haven’t tried too many of the flavored. Plus, these looks like they have WAY less sugar that the national brands. (See Chart Below)

After reading the story of Max Mallows, I was intrigued. I, too, have to change up my nutrition for medical reasons. This could be a great new snack for my Low Cholesterol Diet.

Check out the table below (Copied from the Max Mallows website)

Once I tried a bite of my Burnt Caramel Max Mallow, I really did enjoy it. It was super soft and very easy to eat. It tastes like a roasted marshmallow, with some vanilla and brown sugar. Quite delightful! My husband and I really liked it. Little man did not, sadly. He loves marshmallows, but this flavor I guess wasn’t for him.

I would love to try each of their flavors. I bet I would be into most of them, if not all. YUM! If Know Brainer works with bloggers, please let me know 🙂

@SBGlobal_Foods Whole Wheat Mini Twists ~ @DailyGoodieBox #FreeSamples

I love pretzels. Big soft ones, small crunchy ones. I just love pretzels. One of my favorite snacks. Also, a great snack for those (like me) who need to lower their cholesterol.

So when Daily Goodie Box sent a sample of Pretzel Pete Whole Wheat Mini Twists , I was already excited. And this particular sample, doesn’t have any flavors. Usually, I want to try a new brand by their regular/original flavor. This one is the Whole Wheat Mini Twists. Right up my alley.

After crunching, I would have liked a tad more salt. These pretzels were just ok for me and the little guy. They tasted a little stale, maybe? I don’t want to say that for sure, but they weren’t as “airy” as I was hoping they would be.

The Pretzel Pete difference in quality and taste is directly related to the company’s slow batch production process. Each batch of Pretzel Pete is gently soaked in our proprietary seasoning slurry, resulting in an amazing flavor experience in every bite.

@InterstateBait Big Game Brisket Sunflower Seeds ~ @DailyGoodieBox #FreeSamples

When it come to sunflower seeds, I am kind of a newbie. I mean I have had sunflower seeds, but nothing flavored and having had any in years. When Daily Goodie Box included a sample of Interstate Bait Big Game Brisket Sunflower Seeds , I was stoked to try. With the recent news of needing to lower my cholesterol, this would be a great new snack to keep in the pantry (if I love it).

Sunflower seeds have some healthy benefits as well:

While I found the taste of these Interstate Bait Big Game Brisket Sunflower Seeds enjoyable, the reward is so small for the work you have to put into separating the shell from the seeds. I did love the flavor, though. Garlic and the smoky flavor… yes!!

Update: My son and I have gone back several times to snack on these. The flavor makes them worth the work.

@bramisnacks Italian Snacking Lupini Beans ~ @DailyGoodieBox #FreeSamples

This Daily Goodie Box is coming at the perfect time. It seems to be filled with snacks that are perfect for me starting my low cholesterol diet. Here is another different snack, that I am anxious to try. Brami Italian Snacking Lupini Beans are totally new to me.

After browsing the Brami website, I really want to try their hummus selection, as well. I am a newbie when it comes to hummus, but that’s yet another snack that is ideal for a low cholesterol diet.

The family and I tried the Lupini Beans (Salt & Vinegar). First, let me say that I do not like Salt & Vinegar flavored anything, just not typically my thing. Ok, so after trying my first bean, I wasn’t completely turned off. It did have a strong start. It kind of reminds me of the saltiness of an olive, which I love. I ate a few and really didn’t mind it at all. My husband said he likes them, too. He thinks they are similar to a lima or butter bean as far as consistency, and that they take on the flavor profile you pair them with. Little man (6 year old), not diggin’ them at all.

So now I know what they taste like. I would be interested in trying the Chili & Lime, as well.

Plant protein and fiber satisfy and power you up.

Avocado Toast with Everything but the Bagel Seasoning

For any of you looking for a healthy breakfast (or needing to lower your cholesterol like me), avocado toast is a great place to start with so many options. I have just begun looking for different recipes. Last week, I was on the phone with my mom discussing that I was trying avocado toast and that I thought it was ok, but nothing special. She suggested sprinkling some Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning on it for some more flavor.

This morning, I tried it and loved it! I just mashed the avocado with a couple of sprinkles of the Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning and then spread it over my warm toast. Wow, what a difference some garlic makes. Absolutely delicious!

I was blown away when I received this box from Sampler. All full sized products! I have been testing each of these products out and have found a couple of keepers.

Axe 12H Refreshing Scent Body Wash – Apollo

While this is for men, I like to try each product so I can describe more of what it smells and feels like. I love the scent of the Sage & Cedarwood in this Apollo Body Wash. It didn’t moisturize (which I can’t imagine most men’s products would), but it did smell quite sexy. My husband uses it and when I walk passed the shower, when he is using it… I smile. It just smells amazing. He just told me that it smells “awesome”!

Take Out – Meal in a bag Puffs – White Chedda

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from something that sounds so healthy, but after three puffs I was hooked. I am all about the white cheddar flavor. This is a great snack to add to my “Low Cholesterol” list. Now, I want to try every flavor they make. I would gladly work with Outstanding Foods if they wanted to collaborate on something. DELISH!

Hungry Buddha Keto Bar – Triple Chocolate

One of my favorite foods to try is a protein bar. I am open to try any flavor from most any brand. From this Sampler box, I was able to try the Hungry Buddha Triple Chocolate. I was not a fan of this protein bar. It tasted very waxy and didn’t have much of a taste. Not triple chocolate taste, at least not to me. I still stand by my “try 3 flavors from a company before you move on” thought. This is only the first from Hungry Buddha, so I will try two more flavors before I decide if Hungry Buddha is for me.

Recommendations Needed on Low Cholesterol Snacks

Ever since I received my results for my annual blood tests, I have been researching like crazy on how to lower my cholesterol. What do I need to be eating? What should I cut out of my diet? What do I need to cut way back on, food wise?

I quickly found my answers. Many of the sites I checked out said a lot of the same things. There is a group of foods that will help lower my cholesterol: beans, salmon, avocado, greens, apples, grapes, bananas, citrus, nuts, oatmeal…

From there, I began to research smaller companies that sell these foods packaged, for quick consumption; oatmeal, granola, brown rice, nuts, trail mix. With many of the companies I found, I clicked follow on their social media page(s). I want to see what their followers have to say about which flavors/products are the best.

I am ready for any recommendations on low cholesterol foods in the following food categories:

OatmealGranolaBrown Rice
NutsTrail MixQuinoa
Keto ProductsBeansDark Chocolate
Green TeaProtein Bars/Shakes

Or do you have any recommendations of the following :

  • Salmon Recipes
  • Tuna Recipes
  • Avocado Recipes

I have started a Low Cholesterol Pinterest Board with some things that have peaked my interest. (See Below)
