Sometimes I Feel Like A Nut . . .

And if you do too, you should definitely try out Frito-Lays new brand.  Its called True North.  They have everything from nut clusters to nut crunches to nut crisps to whole nuts.  They seriously take care of any “nut” need you may have.  Their mission statement is one of most unique ones I’ve seen in a long time.  It is “to bring inspiration to natural snacking”.  Recently, Bill (the hubby) and I tried a couple of the peanut crunches. We tried both the toasted sesame and the honey wheat.  I’ll be honest, when I opened the package of the honey wheat crunches, I just wanted to smell them all day.  They smell that yummy!  They also taste just as good too.   Some other things I like about them are that they are 100% natural, no preservatives, no artificial flavors, and no added colors.  They also are a good source of protein and fiber.  All the nuts are also grown and produced in the United States of America.  They are both kosher and vegan too!

Where can you get these?  Target, CVS, Sam’s, and Walmart carry these wonderful snacks.  If you feel like a nut and don’t want your normal plain boring peanut, give these a try!  You won’t regret it and will pick up a new healthy snack.

Easy Chicken and Rice Casserole

This is an easy to make slow cooker recipe. My slow cooker tends to cook warm, so once I added the rice, I had add more water than what the recipe calls for. Next time, I think I would add another can of condensed cream of chicken soup.
