Add this to your popcorn and salads – Award-Winning Parma! Vegan Parmesan

Coming from Southern Oregon is this dairy-free, gluten-free, gmo-free, soy-free, KETO, Kosher and Vegan parmesan you can shake onto salads, popcorn and more! Parma! is a superfood parmesan that was “established in response to a rapidly-growing need within the vegetarian marketplace for a breakthrough allergen-free parmesan alternative”.

We love sprinkling this on our popcorn for our frequent movie nights we’ve been having lately with our extra inside time. I love the Garlicky Green and my son likes it but now I see him mixing the Original with Garlicky Green because he says sometimes the garlic is too strong for him so by mixing them he says it’s the best flavor! It really has a great and robust flavor and for me, I love my popcorn to have this great extra flavor.

It comes in a shaker bottle and is perfect for on the go so don’t forget to stash one in your purse when you can head back to the theaters and shows again! I think they are great gift basket gifts for foodies.

Parma! comes in 4 flavors – Original, Garlicky Green, Chipotle Cayenne and Better than Bacon. Make sure you search their locator to find how you can find Parma! near you.

National Beer Day is April 7

National Beer Day is April 7

April 7 is National Beer Day. It all started when President Roosevelt took the major first step toward ending Prohibition and signed a law allowing people to brew and distribute beer in the United States. This happened April 7, 1933 according to National Today.

Today we take for granted the refreshing taste of an ice cold beer when visiting with friends, camping, eating out or even movie night at home. Personally, I love beer especially light beers and Hefeweizen beers. When we head out to eat I have restaurants I love based on the beers they brew. Seattle is full of family-friendly pubs with good beer and equally good food.

This beer above I was able to enjoy on Pier 66 in NYC on vacation. It was the last night of our trip and I knew the last time I was in NYC I had some good beer and food on the water and could not remember the name, so we head down to the Chelsea Market and started walking until I spotted that familiar spot. The best way to end a fun trip!

2020 will be a unique year for celebrating National Beer Day. Prior to 1933 they could not find or consume beer, now in 2020 we can buy and consume it but without our larger circle of friends or family. I am not sure what makes me more sad, the thought of no beer or no big company to drink one with on April 7!

Mikey’s Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free hand-held meals, breads and snacks

Mikey's Gluten Free snacks

It all started with the Mikey’s English Muffin. Quality ingredients ONLY and without the common allergens including gluten and the carbs KETO-dieters hate. It’s the perfect english muffin and it tastes great too! I don’t eat standard breads if I can at all help it and many better options taste like cardboard. I love the touch of sweetness on this bread and I feel much better eating Mikey’s.

Keto-friendly muffins

Not all gluten free products are good for you and Michael Tierney, a classically trained chef set out to create his products to actually be good for you. Snack pockets are always a hit especially with our boys as teens. Have you looked at the ingredients in these? Yikes! Mikey’s made their pockets tastet good and left out all the junk I want to avoid.

English Muffins

I wanted to announce the 2 new pocket meal flavors: Buffalo-Style Chicken and Cauliflower & Broccoli Cheddar. These join the cheese pizza, pepperoni pizza, ham & cheese, egg & cheese and the egg/cheese & ham flavors we already love to have on hand.
