1.) Rao's marinara- the boss' wife aka Jocelyn told me about this sauce today, and since I was on my way to one of the three stores I go to regularly(trader joes, whole foods, stop and shop), I bought it. When Jocelyn said she only likes homemade sauce (none from the jar), but she absolutley loved this one, I was sold. I poured it over my meatballs and broccoli that I had for dinner tonight, and it was amazing! Thanks for the hot find!
2.) I'm not sure if you can read the label of the dark chocolate, but its a Trader Joe's 73% dark chocolate that I got today. Gina asked me yesterday about the kind of chocolate I used in my cookies/cupcakes. I had used just regular dark chocolate chips, because I didn't find any 73% at the store I was at, and didn't feel like going further down the post road. So for your chocolate purchases I would suggest trader joes ( cheaper and more options than whole foods)
3.) I saved the best Hot Find for last, my new favorite Lara Bar, Coconut Cream Pie ! I know most of you Paleo eaters have been eating Lara bars for a while now. I ate them all the time last year, but like everything else I eat regularly, I got sooo sick of them and haven't really eaten them in a few months. As a regular down the "bars" aisle at whole foods, I passed the Lara bars and a new colored white box jumped right out at me ! Yes, I know its sad when you recognize an out of the ordinary colored lara bar box. Since we all know I have a sick obsession with coconut I had to buy a few of them to try. They are delicious, they taste like a coconut macaroon! I have only found them at whole foods thus far, i'm anxiously waiting for trader joes or stop and shop to get them ( they will probably be much cheaper).These are the only ingredients in the Coconut Cream Pie Lara Bar:
