Vegan Food Review: Field Roast Frankfurters

On my last grocery trip, I picked up some brand new vegetarian and vegan food products to try. One of them being vegan hot dogs! I was pretty impressed by some of the information on the nutritional facts label.
Calories: 190
Protein: 21g
Fiber: 3g
Carbs: 7g
Also, the ingredient list is pretty short, considering that this is a processed food. Another good thing about the product is that everything that's listed in the ingredients list, you can pretty much recognize.
Honestly, I was most impressed the macros, and that's why I picked up the veggie dog. When unraveling the veggie dog from the casing, the dog's appearance looked pretty legit. The texture, color, and the way it held together was absolutely perfect. It even cooked just like a real hot dog.

My Taste Review:

I was actually not a huge fan of the taste. I would even say that Morning Star veggie dogs taste much nicer, but I also have to admit that Morning Star's veggie dog macros, nutritional value, and extensive list of god-knows-what-is-actually-in-that-veggie-dog is pretty awful.
I wouldn't necessarily say that Field Roast Frankfurters are not good. I would just say I probably wouldn't buy them again. But since I did buy them, and they have an insane amount of protein in them, I am just going to mix them in other foods and season them well.
(It's always the less healthy stuff that tastes better...what a bummer!)

But kudos to you for going vegetarian for the time being! I know those cravings for meat can be so tempting!
First thing I did when I went vegetarian was go directly for all the meat substitutes. While it was awesome there were fewer ingredients & overall stuff I could recognize, the taste wasn't even close to the real thing & some of the textures weren't enticing either. Now I just do a lot of veggies & beans. Have yet to pay attention to macros... every time is explained to me I'm like ( -_______________-)
ohhh..... ok...@alywoah
@ravichavda64 the packaging says it's vegan...so I hope so!!
is it really 100% veggies?

Healthy Strawberry Chia Watermelon Smoothie
Cold and refreshing, sweet and tart, with a twist of lime for freshness – this vegan, gluten-free smoothie is a perfect (and healthy!) summer treat, complete with chia seeds, which I probably don't need to tell you are a nutritional GOLD MINE. Chia seeds are packed with fiber and antioxidants. They're a good source of protein, and gram for gram, have more Omega-3 fatty acids than salmon. It's no coincidence that "chia" means "strength" – ancient Mayans and Aztecs prized this tiny seed for its sustainable energy. Today, health nuts everywhere rejoice in the chia's ability to pack so much good stuff into so few calories! (Source) This delicious, refreshing smoothies could not be easier to make. Minimalist Baker has whipped up another incredible recipe for us; check out their site for a lot of other wonderful treats that take one bowl, less than 10 ingredients, or 30 minutes (or less!) to prepare. In the meantime, pour yourself a big glass of this smoothie, sprinkle on some chia seeds, and feel your cares float away on the summer breeze. Strawberry Chia Watermelon Smoothie Recipe by Minimalist Baker Serves 2 Ingredients 1 1/2 cups (240 g) fresh watermelon, cubed (black seeds removed) 1 cup (120 g) frozen strawberries 1/2 ripe banana (50 g), previously peeled, chopped and frozen 1/2 - 3/4 cup (120-180 ml) unsweetened plain almond milk 1 lime, juiced (~30 ml) 1 Tbsp chia or hemp seeds (optional) Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth, adding more almond milk to thin, or more frozen strawberries or ice to thicken. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more lime for acidity, banana for sweetness, or watermelon for a more intense watermelon flavor. Top with additional chia seeds to mock watermelon seeds! Best when fresh, though leftovers keep covered in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. I can't wait to give this a try – let me know how yours come out! :)

Homemade Pop-Tarts? Oh Hells Yeah!
I never want to eat a store bought Pop-Tart again. Not after looking at this recipe, which uses real, flaky butter pastry (instead of crumbly cardboard dough) and your favorite fruit preserves (instead of sugar mixed with red dye 40). The homemade frosting and cheerful rainbow sprinkles are the icing on the cake! Photo and recipe credit go to Jaclyn over at Cooking Classy, an awesome cooking and baking blog that you need to check out! For now, here's the recipe for your new favorite breakfast (or anytime) treat. Homemade Pop-Tarts Prep Time: 20 mins. Chill Time: 3 hours. Cook Time: 30 mins. Difficulty: Medium Makes 8 pop-tarts What You'll Need For the pastry: 2 cups + 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling 1 tsp salt 1 tsp granulated sugar 1 cup unsalted butter, cold and diced into 1/2-inch cubes 4 - 5 Tbsp ice water 3/4 cup strawberry preserves, divided (or other preserve of choice) For the icing: 1 cup powdered sugar 2 Tbsp half and half, plus more as needed 1/4 tsp vanilla extract What To Do 1. Make the pastry dough: Pulse together flour, salt and granulated sugar in a food processor. Add butter and continue to pulse until the butter is broken up, and the mixture has a mealy texture. Add 4 tablespoons of water and pulse a few times until it comes together into dough; if it fails to come together, add another tablespoon of water and pulse again. 2. On a clean surface, divide dough into two portions. Shape each into a 5-inch dish, cover with plastic wrap, and chill in the fridge for 1 hour. Meanwhile, line two rimmed cookie sheets with parchment paper. 3. Remove one disk from the fridge; leave the other one to chill. Roll out the dough disk into a rectangle measuring approximately 13 inches by 11 inches. If edges crack, just stick them back together and keep rolling. Trim edges just so, so you have a 12"x10" perfect rectangle. Cut this into 8 5"x3" rectangles. 4. Arrange 4 rectangles evenly spaced on the parchment-lined cookie sheet; spread 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of jam evenly down the center of each rectangle. Seal edges with fingertips, then reseal with a fork. Use a tooth pick to poke the top of each tart 4 times. Let chill in the freezer for at least 2 hours, or up to one week. 5. Repeat process with second disk of dough. 6. Preheat oven to 375°F. With one rack in the upper third of the oven and one in the bottom third, bake frozen tarts until golden, rotating racks halfway through baking. It will take about 25-30 minutes in all. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for several minutes, then transfer to wire rack. 7. Make the icing: Whisk together all ingredients, then add additional half and half a 1/2 teaspoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency. Spread over cooled pop-tarts, then dust with rainbow sprinkles. Allow to set at room temperature. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy! A little bit of a process, but totally worth it, don't you think? I can't wait to try these sweet treats in my own kitchen! :D
7 Weird Weight Loss Tips That Don't Involve Exercising
If you're on a weight loss journey, but you hate exercising, test out these weight loss tips that don't require one minute of exercise. Tie a knot. If you're feeling daring, try Valerie Orsoni’s “Le Petit Secret." It's a method used by multiple French women who wear a ribbon around their waist when they go out to eat. It's supposed to keep you conscious of how much you're eating because the ribbon will start to feel tighter as the evening progresses. Eating for the Insta. Rather than logging down every morsel in a food journal/diary, take a picture of it. That way you can visualize how much food you're truly consuming. Eat off small blue plates. Putting your food onto small plates will give off the appearance that you have more food on your plate than you actually do. Also, the color blue functions as an appetite suppressant, so there's a reason why a lot of restaurants don't use them. Eat with your opposite hand. This will cause you to concentrate more on picking up your food and unconsciously slow down your food intake. Light a vanilla-scented candle after dinner. Studies show that the aroma of a vanilla candle will dampen dessert cravings. Hang a mirror opposite your seat at the table. You're less likely to shove that extra roll in your mouth when you're staring yourself in the eye during a meal. A mirror will help remind you of why you're trying to lose weight in the first place. Sit at the end of the table. Usually all the shared food such as appetizers, chips and salsa, bread, etc. are placed in the middle of the table for easy access to everyone. The farther away you sit, the least likely you will be tempted to go for seconds.
