Goodies Galore

Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness


What’s up hooker stains. (Len calls me that for some reason.) I’m currently babysitting but the little rascal just went down for her nap so it’s time for some homework, er.. blogging. The people I sit for have two birds and one of them is singing away like it’s nobodies business. Why do birds always sing the lamest songs. Can’t they learn something cool like Lady Gaga? Damn birds.

I’ve had some snacks today, one of which is worth sharing. The fine folks at Sahale sent me some goodies to binge on review. I’m sure you’ve all seen their products at Starbucks. I like their company because the Sahale line was built with quality healthy food in mind, without skimping on taste. They use spices and ingredients that are unique and delicious. Today I tried something truly wonderful, Valdosta Nut Blend. For those not down with the lingo, that means black pepper and orange zest pecans with sweet cranberries. The bag contained two servings and in typical Lindsay fashion, I ate them both. They were sweet, yet salty, crunchy, yet chewy. Mama Mia!

Do you want to try some of these bad boys too? I thought so. Check out their website and let me know what flavor is most appealing to you for a chance to win three bags of  nuts and a Sahale t-shirt! Len will pick a random number tomorrow night at 7 p.m.

  13. I know you mentioned the Valdosta blend, but that really is what sounds most appealing to me. I am a sucker for orange zest.

  21. bwaha! First of all, I had to laugh about the bird being able to sing lady gaga. That would be an AMAZING bird, and what would he be doing in a locked up cage? He’d be all over the tv by now!

    Anywho, the flavor that’s the most appealing to me is…soledad! Sweet, crisp, tingly flavors all at once! Mmmm!

  22. I’ve seen these and been meaning to give them a try. I’m sure I could easily gobble up every flavor, but I think the Ksar pistachio flavor sounds amazing!
