I threw some sweet potatoes in the toaster oven (set the timer and forgot about it), dunked a couple of fillets in a bowl of cold water to thaw and went back to work for 30 minutes before washing some greens and simply poaching the fillets for 4 minutes! No kidding. Easy clean-up. Simple, healthy, mid-week meal.
Though reluctant at first since the line is owned by none other than Frito Lay, I decided to give them a try based on the simple ingredients. The Almond Clusters bag and the Pecan Almond Peanut Clusters only contain 3 ingredients other than nuts: brown rice syrup, sugar and salt. Though they are not raw (raw nuts are way healthier for you as the oils are intact), they don’t have any artificial flavors or sweeteners. They avoided both the long-since blacklisted high fructose corn syrup (from GMO corn) and the newly black-listed agave nectar, instead opting for brown rice syrup. Well, more to come on agave…good? or bad?… and all the dirt on detoxing.
Enjoy your evenings!
