Wow! Lots of my readers have entered the Nutty Giveaway! I cannot wait until tomorrow to see who the winner is!
As you know, one of my May Gals is to save money. To be honest, I’m not the average 19-year-old who spends all their money on designer clothes, getting my nails/hair done, purses, shoes, and the newest electronics. If you must know, I wear yoga pants just about everyday, have NEVER had my nails done, is lucky enough to have a mom that is best friends with a hair dresser, uses the same bag everyday that I bought on my Paris trip in 2009, has never spent over $60 on a pair of shoes and has used the same Ipod since 2006.
Now, if you haven’t noticed, I do spend most of my extra money on food. Not because a vegan diet is costly but because I sometimes choose to spoil myself with the latest health foods like Chia seeds, fancy nut butters, and the entire Bob’s Red Mill collection oh, and not to mention my obsession with Amy’s Kitchen frozen meals.
U n n e c e s s a r y !
My pantry is jammed packed with all of these things I never even use. My mom, very seriously, tells my dad that he needs to build another shelf in the laundry room for all of my food (I almost took a pictures of my overstocked kitchen but I’m actually too embarrassed!). This has gone too far.
Anyway, there is a point to all of this.
Operation Overstock means….I am making it my mission to NOT shop for anything but fresh produce until my pantry is CLEAN. Or at least close anyway. I have endless boxes of pasta, different types of flour, cereal, dried fruit, protein powder, beans, and of course…nut butter. For the next few weeks I will just make do with what I have for most of my meals.
Today I started with my pasta:
I added these veggies I bought from the market for $3:

Fantastic World Foods Review Part 2
Part 2- Taco Filling
(Incase you missed it: Part 1)
My family decided to make taco’s for dindin and I kinda felt left out. Just kidding! I reached for my Fantastic World Foods TACO FILLING and joined the fiesta. The taco filling is made from TVP which I happen to be a huge fan of. With only 100 calories a serving who wouldn’t be excited? What I loved about the taco filling is that it didn’t taste like ground beef. Sometimes I feel like companies try too hard to make vegetarian products taste like the real deal and I don’t like that. Then it’s just weird. I like “fake meats” to taste like veggies and seasonings. Does that even make sense?
I remember how greasy and dry real ground beef tacos would taste, not pleasant at all. you can tell just by looking at these tacos that there is no dryness here!
Would I buy these again? No doubt! 🙂
Have you tried FWF’s Taco Filling?
