Finding new energy bars is fun, especially creative and healthful pemican-like bars such as Epic's organic, grass-fed beef with habanero and cherry. The 1.5 ounce bar packs 13 grams of protein, 11 grams fat (mostly from walnuts), and 10 grams carbs. The ingredients are as follows: organic beef, dried cherries, lactic acid (an antioxidant), salt, celery powder, fine black pepper, crushed habanero. Besides the strong nutritional and sustainable stats, this bar tastes good, and is easy to eat. The Epic bar has a delicate side, and your molars can get in on the action. Made it Texas, Epic got it right. And, unlike beef jerky where the sodium can leave you high and dry, this Epic bar sports only has 240 milligrams sodium. Epic also produces a Turkey almond-cranberry, and Bison bacon-cranberry bar. Their website can fill you in with details like humanely raised animals that produce a net benefit to the environment.
The lentil, potato, turnip, fennel, cherry tomato, onion, collard, and lemon beurre entree was so freshly dished that the air bubbles were suspended in my dish. Our waiter, Jeffrey, referenced Palouse sourced (PNW Co-op) lentils, which was backed up on the menu (see pic). My 99- year old grandmother ordered quiche which sported local greens from Urban Eden Farms in Vinegar Flats, Spokane , and eggs from The Hutterian Brethren in Reardan, Washington. My wife ordered pancake of the day with bacon and eggs. The bacon was sourced from Rocky Ridge Ranch, in Reardan. Sante is unique, from its James Beard featured chef, Jeremy Hansen, to its charcuterie (which even spell check doesn't recognize). The menu listed other local food sources, such as: Lostine Cattle, Co. in Walla, Walla; Green Bluff Farms; D & S Fanara in Spokane; and Spokane Family Farms dairy products. Locally sourced aside, the food was prepared with care and had the sixth flavor - soul!
Keeping your potato chip intake to moderate calories can be challenging, but Starbucks makes it easy by offering a 210 calorie singe-serving bag of "perfectly salted" chips. Perfectly salted equates to 180 milligrams of sodium per bag, which is 7% of the DV (Daily Value). The skin-on, salty crunchy chips pair nicely with the lightly sweetened latte, making a satisfying combo. The flavor duo goes beyond Starbucks: In the supermarket Lays offers 'Cappucino' chips. A serving size is 1 ounce, about 15 chips, sporting 160 calories and only 40mg sodium. My overall preference is to consume the chips and coffee separately, a la Starbucks. But if you don't have time to make that stop, then Lays has your back!
