Things I'm Loving Right Now...
Many of you asked about peanut flour. I'm still using a stash of Trader Joe's I have. Yep, I hoarded! Don't judge me! You can get peanut flour online, and while I've never tried it, I would imagine Protein Plus Flour would work as would PB2.

Things I'm loving right now...

I guess I'll start with peanut flour. I can't get enough of it! I eat this daily. It's an incredible source of protein and low fat. I said it...it's lower in fat and that makes me happy. I get my fat in other places just so you know.

 Besides, when you mix this with a little water, a pinch of salt and a little stevia...it tastes like peanut butter fudge! YUM!

F.R.O.G Jam! 

 After Heather posted about it and then Jessica posted about it, I had to find it. I finally jar of heaven at a little farmer's market here in town and am now in love! It's fig, raspberry, orange and ginger. Seriously, what's not to love? They also have a hot version...you know I'm going back for that one!

 I ate F.R.O.G on sliced apples wrapped in...

 Tortilla Factory Tortillas! I love these! They are huge too, so they are perfect for wrapping my crazy apples and for sandwiches! They are so soft and doughy...perfect!

 My Rocket Dogs! Max stole my Chuck Taylors and so these have been my go to shoes lately. I need to get more Chucks though! So sad when your kid takes the shoes off your feet!

 Summer vegetables...I know they are almost gone, so I'm definitely filling up on them. I stewed some squash, eggplant and cherry tomatoes with a few cloves of garlic for dinner. I threw it all in a pot and cooked it on medium heat with a little olive oil...it was so good!

It was the perfect topping form my socca with a sprinkle of nutritional yeast!

Nutritional yeast! I got this massive container of NOW nutrition yeast from Swanson Heath Products. I love this company and they are so easy to shop through. It's my go to place for supplements and health food products!

I love the nutrient stats on this stuff too! I've been really busy lately, so I've been cheating and getting my B vitamins through nutritional yeast. I would feel bad, but I'm really loving it!

So, tell me...what are you loving right now?

    DSW has TONS of Chucks right now!

    I'm loving: Biscoff spread, kombucha green tea, and supper clubs.

    ...And I'm 5 seconds fro ordering peanut four, which I'm sure I'll become obsessed with. :)

    I am SO sad I never grabbed that peanut flour before it was gone... :(

    But I totally agree with you on the tortillas- they stay good forever (good for a single gal) and are delish. Perfect!

    Super sweet and juicy summer peaches!

    They weren't from Georgia but were still amazing. Actually, I've never been to Georgia (you used to live there, right?), but I can't even imagine a peach that would be better than the one I'm eating! They must be really, really good :)

    ohhhh, that's so cool - i didn't know frog preserves were actually a "normal" flavor of jam. in that more than one company makes them, i mean. that gives me hope :]

    i just recently tried the protein pluspeanut flour. it's already gone so you know it wasn't bad ;) I couldn't detect a difference! It's all probably the same....TJ's is just making it a pain and making it harder for everyone to get now, right?

    I'm also loving nutritional yeast. I've been making pesto a lot because of our basil plant and I put it in there. :)

    Okay I seriously need to get my hands on some nutritional yeast! I love that Swanson site too.

    And I'm super frustrated. My MIL has some peanut flour that she has no clue what it is. Someone at her church gave it to her. I tried to nonchalantly suggest taking it offer her hands but she won't give it up. It's such a tease seeing it every time I visit!

    I have a whole bag of TJ's pb flour just waiting to be used!!! I need to hop on that!

    Hi Sarena! All of your "loves" look awesome - I especially like your shoes. :) I'm loving shredded coconut, my new bike and yoga!

    I am loving the Sin Gold Cherry Tomatoes I got this week from my CSA. They are incredibly sweet and flavorful. That jam sounds good. I'll be on the lookout for it!

    I bought some TJ's peanut flour last time I was in the states. I haven't used it yet but I'm curious on how you use it. Is it just like wheat flour or will I have to make some adjustments. I guess there's only one way to find out!!

    The tomatoes look delicious.

    I'm loving avocado. Love it!

    Those shoes are adorable! I will definitely be checking that site out. Never heard of FROG jam ... cool! Taking a break from peanuts for a while now, so I didn't even get to try some peanut flour that I received a while back. :-( Your little truffle/fudge creation looks very good though. :-)

    I'm loving that it's Friday! ;-)

    FROG Jam?! :)

    I'm loving my Cinnamon Raisin Walnut Butter right now! :D

    That brand of tortilla is also my favorite. For some reason, they're way cheaper at Publix. Just an FYI.

    haha- I still have a stash of TJ's peanut flour too. I only use it sometimes. I go through PB2 faster (especially the chocolate) because I can get it anytime! I recently bought those kind of wraps too- I"m not new to the brand, but I am new to that kind- are they a new variety?

    Very nice, thanks for sharing.

    I'm so jealous of you right now. I've been dying to try peanut flour for ages!

    I have yet to make anything with Peanut Flour that I like. I'll have to try the fudge!
    I am loving TJ's reduced guilt popcorn right now. I spray some spray butter on it with a little sea salt and it's perfect!! I could seriously eat the whole bag in a day.....

    Hey, hey, no shame in stashin' the peanut flour! I actually just got my stash out of "hiding" about a month ago and now I'm getting dangerously low! Eeek!

    Yay for the FROG!! I swear I don't know how I even lived before I found that gem! haha!

    LOVE your Rocket Dogs! I am LOVING my new Chucks right now, even though I've only been able to wear them around the house lately due to weird weather! I'm so scared I'm going to get caught out in the rain and ruin my new "babies"! Lol

    Lately I've been loving Pandora Radio set to a Cat Power station, sandwiches with super runny egg yolks, and making new homemade hummus concoctions! :)

    i've been meaning to try Nutritional Yeast, I never have purchased it.

    I've had things made with it at restaurants and at my favorite vegetarian restaurant in San Antonio
