Tried & Tested: Tofu Chips

Posted on

I’m a junk food addict but after I gave birth I suddenly had no appetite for it. I know it’s weird that 24 years of my life junk food had been part of my staple diet but then in less than a year I let go.

I might have let go of my stashing of junk food but my urge to munch on DVD nights & game nights is still there. So I figured if I had lessen my appetite for junk, then probably I can increase my appetite for healthy snacks and so I did.

I present to you my new staple snack

Assorted Tofu Chips at P31.00

I love grocery shopping & sometimes I tend to buy things even if I haven’t used the product or don’t really need it. So I stumble upon these babies at a chinese deli in V Mall named Tin Hok. They offer a variety of imported (not exclusively) products and mostly are snacks.

I first tried the spicy tofu since I love spicy foods and the sour cream flavor since I love sour cream as well. I LOVED IT!

Spicy flavored had a tangy taste to it but just a hint while the sour cream is flavorful & just right. On my next visit I tried the other variants; barbecue, white cheddar & cheese. The barbecue was alright, the usual barbecue flavor (like that of a popcorn) while the white cheddar taste a bit salty, while the cheese flavor was a bit bland (not like of a popcorn flavored cheese).

So I’ve ended up liking my first two picks: Spicy & Sour Cream 🙂

Oh I forgot, they also have plain tofu chips, it’s best eaten with dips (I prefer spinach dip over salsa)

Now I am proud to say that I eat healthier than before and no I’m not gonna be a vegan anytime soon. 😉

Have a few other healthy snacks to share so stay tuned! 😉

Tried & Tested: I can’t believe it’s yogurt!

Posted on

With the fad about yogurt here in Manila, there’s practically tens of different yogurt stores that’s lurking in almost every mall in the metro.

I’m not an avid fan of yogurt because I don’t like it’s sour taste. If you’re a sweet tooth like me then I guarantee you you’ll love Golden Spoon. Love the name? You’ll love the taste even more coz it’s creamy & sweet like ice cream!  It’s named as “Ice Cream Lover’s Frozen Yogurt.” Also, their yogurts are non-fat while others are low-fat so this is one treat that’s definitely guilt-free. Perfect for summer, perfect for El Nino. 🙂

I’ve tried four flavors so far: Old Fashioned Vanilla,  Just Chocolate, Strawberry and NY Cheesecake. The good thing about these flavors is that it’s not that sweet at all, it’s just right and let me just say that all of them are sooooo good! I’m really excited to try the other flavors soon!

Did I tell you the perks you get every time you eat Golden Spoon? Not only is it healthy for you but if you frequent eating it, you get one 8oz. serving for free! YAY! 🙂

Just don’t forget to ask for your FREE Yogurt Card or present your existing one, complete all 8 stamps to get a complimentary 8oz. serving 🙂 YAY! More reasons to come back for more, isn’t it great?!

Now there’s a good reason to eat yogurt everyday! 😉
