Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream

Hands down the best ice cream I have tasted. Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams are hand-made every step of the way—they call it cow to cone. I love that Jeni thinks of her ice cream as a blank canvas before experimenting with flavor combinations because I truly believe she is an epicurean artist.

nutmeric ultra

Nutmeric Ultra is an All Natural Gourmet Turmeric Spread and Dip with Organic Almonds Amplified with Black Pepper

As a culinary nutritionist I jump at the chance to use turmeric in my cooking because it has so many healing properties. I found this almond butter to be a beautiful way to include a powerful antioxidant in my afternoon snack. It has a warm, mild flavor with a slightly bitter aftertaste, just enough to tease the palate without being overpowering. I enjoyed it on celery and on apples. The apples were a nice contrast. I look forward to tossing it in some quinoa pasta!
