Look Before You Eat – Pei Wei

I heard a while back that Pei Wei was now serving cauliflower rice and I’ve been interested in trying it. They also have a cauliflower fried rice, which sounded great!

Other ones I ate regularly were Nature's Valley Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate bars and Fiber One Peanut Butter bars. Are you sensing a theme here? I've … Continue reading Black-Listed Food: Protein Bars
