Food Should Taste good: And it does!


Happy Wednesday y’all!

This past week I have been snacking away on my new favourite , healthy foods from ‘Food Should Taste Good’!


One of the hardest parts of getting to be a healthier me is the loss of some comfort/snack foods. I’ve heard all the substitutions and curb craving ideas one person can take. For the most part I agree, there are usually always healthy alternatives to every “bad for you” food out there. But let’s be honest, carrots or celery just don’t have that same awesome taste that a good chip or cracker does. Believe me, I’ve spent a lot of time trying to convince myself otherwise. When it became clear that those substitutes weren’t going to suffice, I began my quest for a healthier version of my old favourites! For the most part every “healthy” alternative tastes fake, card board-y or had a mod boggling ingredients list. That was until I found ‘Food Should Taste Good’.


One of the biggest reasons I love FSTG is because of simplicity. There are no gimmicks, misleading information or just plain of boring food. The foods offered are vegan, trans fat free, cholesterol free, low sodium, decently high in fiber and, certified gluten free and kosher! Even better? Not only do they taste good, but the ingredients lists are full of real natural products. The company, created but Pete Lescoe, in an effort to feed his family healthy, natural good tasting food, is really into all natural ingredients! This is no joke, either! In becoming healthier, I’ve found myself always scanning labels. When I scanned the back of the Original Kettle Cooked Sweet Potato Chips – my mind was blown. Three ingredients, things I could actually understand and pronounce at that! That’s it, three! Even my husband was shocked! Sweet Potatoes, Sunflower Oil and Sea Salt. You can’t get much simpler than that! Granted some of the more complex flavour profiles will have more ingredients, but even then you’ll see things like Stone Ground Corn, flax seeds, quinoa and rosemary extract.

The next biggest test for me was the overall taste. It can look good and sound good, but what does it taste like? I set the hubster and myself up with snack tester plates. I wanted my first experience to be a little bit of everything. In an effort to enhance all the flavours I decided to try a few of my favourite chip and snack extras as well!


 I recieved four different flavours in my package!

The Multi grain: A chip and a cracker! It’s filled with awesome things like quinoa, flax seeds and sunflower seeds. It’s got an awesome flavour on it’s own- They recommend a lemon of garlic hummus for a neat pairing. I chose to mostly eat them alone, but I did pair it with the original hummus I bought as well!


I was pretty impressed. It was thick and crunchy and just had this almost addictive flavour. It wasn’t overpowering or dry like some multi grain chips can be. My Hubster said this was his favourite of the bunch!


Next we tried:

The Olive: A power house of 3 types of olives, paired with flavours of garlic and sea salt.


If I’m honest, these were my least favourite of the bunch. They are actually pretty great, but olive is not really my thing. I found their texture to be most like a tortilla chip and decided to treat them as such. I paired Olive with both hummus and a cheese sauce mixture I made. It really enhanced the overall effect in my opinion! Not bad, all things considered.

You can’t go wrong with:

The Cantina: FSTG’s take on a classic restaurant style tortilla chip! These are the best healthy tortilla chips I have EVER had. Hands down. They don’t even give a hint that you are eating something good for you! They have the perfect thickness and crispy crunch that keeps you coming back for more.


I did so many things with these! They totally satisfied my need for a taco or nacho flavour! Crumbled up- they made the perfect pairing for a low fat taco salad. Whole, they were perfect for guacamole, melted cheese or salsa. I feel like with these, the pairing options are pretty endless!


(Seriously a wicked salad! Paired the Cantina Chips with hard boiled eggs, salsa, guacamole, cottage cheese, shredded cheddar on a bed of mixed greens.- I’ve eaten this twice already this week!)

My all time favourite of the bunch?

The Original Kettle Cooked Sweet Potato Chips!

Hands down, these are my winners! I can’t even get enough of these, or couldn’t ,as I already scarfed down the whole bag! Don’t judge me! These are fabulous. They don’t even need or beckon for any flavour enhancements. I love sweet potatoes and have tried to make my own in the past. I was really excited about these and was certainly not left disappointed. They’ve really hit home here. With a crunchy exterior sprinkled in sea salt, paired with an almost chewy inside- I couldn’t stop with these. I paired them with nearly every meal I ate this week! WOW, is all I can say here. Three ingredients round these babies out, making them a power house of awesome.



All in all, I was really impressed with this company. Their products taste good, they can easily be found in places like Target, Starbucks, Whole Foods and many other locations, and their ingredients lists are some of the best I’ve e seen around.

If the yummy food isn’t enough, they are really good to their customers. You can visit their website for loads of information and fun things. If recipes are your thing and you want to find a new pairing for your snacks you can find loads of awesome ideas! You can find ideas for dips, drinks and everything in between!

The Lettuce Hunt

Hey guys! Sorry I’ve been so spacey, it’s been a busy last few weeks! I’m still slotted to share my review of Food Should Taste Good later in the week, but I wanted to share my yummy weekend find!

During the week days I eat a lot of salad. Sometimes I add things like spinach to my breakfast eggs, toss together a big old salad for lunch and snag a side salad for dinner. Any way you look at it, I love a good salad.  Because I tend to eat so much of it, I’ve had issues with keeping myself properly stocked. I love my local salad bar, but the times don’t always work in my favor. Bagged salad tends to rust and I look at a head of lettuce with something akin to fear. I like my salads dark, fresh and crisp!

In the past few months, I’ve bought a large amount of prepacked lettuce in bulk from Sam’s Club. It’s worked “okay”. The amount of it was perfect, but it was always missing SOMETHING. The spring mix didn’t have enough spinach for my taste, the spinach needed everything else and the other offers just didn’t look good. Then I found Taylor Farms Organic Baby Kale Medley! Oh my goodness, you guys!


This package has been an answer to my prayers! It has baby kale, baby spinach, baby chard and shredded carrots! I was a little hesitant because I tend to be iffy with chard, but boy was I wrong. This saved me time and money. I didn’t have to buy carrots, shred them or anything! A nice mix of greens made me a happy camper! Plus it’s organic and triple washed! It also costs the same amount as the regular old salad packages! Less than $5!

I tried it for the first time today for lunch!


All I can say, is YUM! I added about 2 cups of the mix with two table spoons of the new Old Dutch 1/3 less sodium Sea Salt Cottage Cheese. This is one of the better salads I’ve had on a lazy day, y’all! I particularly paid attention to the flavour profile from the greens mixture and the texture. I didn’t get any over powering flavours which was nice! It all melded so well together. The mix was very crisp too! Even with the added weight and wetness of the cottage cheese, it remained crisp and light until the very last bite. I am a very happy girl!

Not much else to report right now. I’ve been snacking like a mad woman on my new chips, but I’ll save talking about those until I’ve written my review! Exercise has been my weak point this week. It’s been extremely hot, even when it’s only 90 they are reporting it feeling like 100! Yikes!

Hope y’all are still kicking butt!

Lazy Sunday

OKay, totally not true. I’ve probably gotten in a good 8 or 9 miles in, all things considered! This weekend was spent visiting some neat estate sales and flea markets. Hubster got a new bow, I got my Asian soup spoons and a million other things. We even found one that was so beyond what I expected. The couple clearly had been musical in some way. They had a full dance studio on their second floor, like the WHOLE floor. It was insane!

But, that’s not why I’m posting today! I wanted to give y’all a sneak peak on a review I’ll be doing this week! I got into contact with my good friends at Food Should Taste Good! They are the makers of some ultra yummy, good for you chips, crackers and popcorn snacks. I mean, who doesn’t love looking at an ingredients label and actually knowing what EVERYTHING on the list is? Or sometimes having that same list contain only THREE ingredients total! Am I right? This amazing company was kind enough to send me some of their top flavours so I could give them a whirl. I’ll be posting my review soon and you’ll get all the good info! Be sure to check back!



I am so beyond excited to try these! I’ve heard some pretty amazing things about them. Sometimes I just need that extra crunch of a good chip, without all the guilt!
