Lightlife II + Giveaway

You can check out Part One here!

Light Burgers, Veggie

I heated this on a nonstick pan (no oil / spray, just put the pan on the burner for a few minutes).  It worked out quite well; the outside was just the tiniest bit crispy, and the inside was a little chewy.  There are visible vegetables and brown rice, which I liked.

Tempehtations, Zesty Lemon

I’ve tried this before, and I didn’t love it.  But it was my first time ever trying tempeh, so I thought I should give it another shot.  I still didn’t love it… the texture is fine, what you’d expect of tempeh, but the “zesty” flavor is just way too strong.  It almost tastes sour.  In a sour-lemon way, not a sour-milk way!

Smart Strips Chick’n

I like these because they’re so versatile.  They work in a stir-fry…

…or in a salad…

…or in chicken tandoori.

I’ve used these strips in lots of other ways, too.  The only thing that would make them better is if they were available in an unseasoned variety; they’d be even more versatile that way.

Smart Chili

My pictures totally do not do this justice.  Yes, it looks like dog food.  No, it does not taste like it!  (Though, to be fair, I’ve never actually eaten dog food.)  It’s kind of high on the sodium, but it’s great once in a while when you’re in a rush.

Organic Soy Tempeh

This was extremely interesting to me!  I liked that it was pretty much a blank slate; it’s very versatile.  So far, I’ve tried it steamed and pan-seared, but I envision lots of different variations using this!

So… want to try some Lightlife products?

  7. I’d like to try either the mushroom burger or chili. Both sound really good.

  8. I would like to try their Smart Dogs. I like hot dogs, but I do think about the bad ingredients in regular hot dogs. They kinda freak me out I’m not sure what’s in them.
