No, seriously…. Would you? Because it exists.
OK, it’s actually less like ice cream and more like a sorbet. The point is, it’s a frozen treat, it’s called Ortaggi and I tried it last night after my first ever spin class at Flywheel. (Yesterday was a day of trying so many new things!)
Now I know, unless you just really love veggies, veggie flavored snacks don’t really sound so appealing. Luckily, last night I was surprised to find this extra healthy post-workout treat was refreshingly tasty.

Well, well, well… It sure has been a while since I last shared some of my favorite food finds with you all.
When I was blogging more frequently I was trying new foods on the regular and sharing my new favorites was a weekly occurrence. Now I work a 9 to 5 job and rarely stray from my go to meals and snacks. (I’m so boring, I know!)
Buuuuut! Thanks to FitFluential and their awesome hook-ups, I was recently introduced to Detour Bar Protein Bars and I’m excited to share them with you as one of my new favorite food finds.
Things the holiday season is about:
-Sending time with loved ones
-Snow (If you’re lucky!)
-Cookies (and all the best baked goods)
-Awesome movies (A Christmas Story, Elf, Harry Potter, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation)
-Fun times with friends and family
-Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, corn muffins, and all your favorite foods (anything that floats your boat!)
It’s no secret that I love snacks. If you follow my Instagram feed, you’ll find this fact is quite apparent.
Right now, some of my favorites snacks include, red pepper slices dipped in Trader Joe’s Greek yogurt spinach and kale dip, homemade pumpkin muffins, trail mix (like salted cashews with raisins), and air popped popcorn with coconut oil and cinnamon. Oh and for an alternative to the classic peanut butter and banana combo, I’ve recently been spreading cookie butter (also from Trader Joe’s) on my bananas. It’s superbly sweet and tastes like cake, but it’s a lot better for you. (Well the banana is at least.)
By now most of you know that last month I started a new job as an editor at TheActiveTimes.com. But unless you did some serious snooping, you probably don’t know that The Active Times’ sister site is TheDailyMeal.com. In other words I work in the same office space as The Daily Meal, a site dedicated to all things good food. (I know, it couldn’t be more perfect.)
So, The Daily Meal has this exquisite test kitchen (also located in our office) where the staff is always cooking up recipes and hosting taste tests. It’s amazing. I love it. TDM recently published “The 101 Best Pizzas in America,” and as a staff, the entire media group celebrated the article’s success with afternoon pizza and drinks last Friday (which also happened to be the same day as my birthday). Basically, my new job has sort of come along with many a perks in the form of food.
