Natural Sunscreen

The sun and I have a “love/hate” relationship.  I recognize that spending too much time basking in its glory can be detrimental to my health. After the long, sunless winter, though, I know that I need to see it for my sanity!  I’m sure everyone is aware of the need for sunscreen. However, there is a huge debate as to which type is the best.

Various Vinegars

As I prepare to dye Easter eggs, and reach to grab vinegar, I’m astound by the variety lining my cupboard: Balsamic; Apple Cider; Red-Wine, Distilled. Each offers up various benefits and tastes, so I thought it might be beneficial to point out what sets each of them apart.

Vegan Wednesday!

Teese Vegan Cheese

Teese Vegan Cheese is now available at Food For Thought! We listened to several requests for this vegan cheese and knew we had to order it. It has been getting a great response and we're proud to be the only store in Wichita that carries this popular cheese substitute!

We are also proud to carry another Chicago Soy Dairy product-Dandie's Vegan Marshmallows. They have the great taste of marshmallows without the gelatin!

Here is a great blog about baking with Dandie's Marshmallows. (Vegan S'Mores and Vegan Rice Krispie treats...YUM!)

Gluten Free Tuesday!

Who said you need gluten to have taste?

With all of the breads available without gluten, there are few that contain "taste" as well. Because let's face it, some of those breads could pass for a dish sponge with your eyes closed. But one product that I find that a lot of people overlook is the Grainless Baker Baguettes. They come two to a package in the frozen food section on Aisle 6. They are delicious, crispy and full of guessed it, flavor! Try them with sub sandwiches, made into garlic bread or just eaten by themselves. I think you'll be greatly impressed!

Gluten-Free Tuesday!

Gluten Free Honey-Maple Granola

2-1/2 c. Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats
1/2 cup Coconut Flakes
1 cup Almonds (Sliced)
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
2 Tbsp. Honey
2 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
3 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup Raisins (Unsulfured)
2 Tbsp. Flaxseed Meal
1/2 cup Dates, chopped
Preheat oven to 300°F.
In a medium sized bowl mix together oats, coconut, almonds and salt. In a separate bowl mix honey, syrup and oil (oil will stay mostly separated, that’s okay). Combine the honey mixture with the oat mixture and stir until evenly coated. Pour the mixture onto a greased baking sheet with sides and spread to cover evenly. Bake for 30 minutes, stir, bake another 5-10 minutes. In a small bowl mix the raisins, dates and flaxseed meal. Stir the raisin mixture into cooked granola.
Store in an airtight container.
