Weekend Diversions: Just Dance, Free Fonts, Free Movies, “Healthy” Sodas & Springing Forward

Last week I blogged about an adorable video of John Mayer and Elmo talking about nothing cute. Not long after Ange @ Red Knows How sent me a link to the following video with combines John Mayer with another one of my favorite people, Ellen Degeneres.

I’m officially a John Mayer funny video junkie so if you come across one you think I’ll like, please comment to let me know or send me an email at mommablogsalot (at) gmail (dot) com.

Speaking of free stuff, RedBox is offering a coupon code for a free movie every Wednesday in March. Just visit their blog, RedBlog on Wednesdays for the code. The blog itself is pretty cool, too, with articles about upcoming movies, DVD reviews, behind the scenes info and other fun things for any movie fan. I added it to my RSS feed and have been having a lot of fun perusing their archives. Definitely a great read!

Have you heard about the new Pepsi Natural (or maybe seen it in a store)? Sold in glass bottles for the slightly exorbitant price of $4.69 for a four pack of 12 oz. glass bottles, they do look very pretty and might intrigue people with the information that these versions of Pepsi contain no high fructose corn syrups and are sweetened with plain old sugar (42 grams of sugar I might add!). Still I’m not sure I’d spend that much for something that, at the end of the day, is still soda and still not great for you. How about you? Would you spend $12.50 per gallon (regular pepsi runs for $3.69 per gallon just to compare) for “natural” pepsi? For more great information about the new Pepsi Natural, check out keacher.com for a great review.

Review: Bacon Salt

It’s been said by various meat lovers everywhere that bacon tastes good with everything. It’s been proven by nutritionists everywhere that eating bacon with everything would be bad for you. It’s high in fat and, let’s be honest, sometimes a pain in the butt to prepare. Enter Bacon Salt. A vegetarian-friendly, low sodium seasoning that can add that “bacon flavor” to any dish you can imagine. If you love bacon in your scrambled eggs in the morning, but are trying to cut down on the fat content, consider Bacon Salt. If you are a vegetarian, who occasionally craves that bacon flavor but can’t imagine abandoning your healthy vegetarian ways, consider Bacon Salt. If the very idea of Bacon Salt just intrigues you and you want to know more – consider buying some Bacon Salt.

I recently had the opportunity to try Bacon Salt and was pretty excited because, come on, who wouldn’t be at least a little bit intrigued by the concept of Bacon Salt (they also make Baconnaise – bacon flavored mayonnaise). I liked the idea that it was healthier than cooking with real bacon, vegetarian friendly and low sodium. Then it arrived and I lost my nerve. What if it tastes terrible? Why hadn’t I heard of bacon salt before? And, um, I’m pregnant. So once that aversion kicked in, it was hard to get past it. I stalled for awhile, trying to decide on the perfect thing to try it on. I should have looked at their website because they have some mouth watering recipe ideas like Bacon and Beer Steamed Clams, Bacon Herb Roasted Potatoes and Bacon Salt Scrambled Eggs. I tried it on some homemade macaroni and cheese the other day, and although a bit saltier than I would prefer my food to be (I’m a weird non-salt fan in general) I was still pleasantly surprised. The bacon flavor is not at all overpowering, and although I didn’t really like it added onto my food at the end of my prep, I think it would be great as a seasoning during cooking (probably how it’s intended to be used – duh).

I think if you are a food snob, this just might not be for you. But if you are a man’s man and the idea of Bacon Salt and Baconnaise thrills you? You have to try this stuff. And if you are looking for a healthier alternative to bacon or are a vegetarian who still appreciates the tastes of meats if not the actual product, I highly recommend this alternative. I love the large variety of Bacon Salt flavors available (like jalapeno, hickory, natural, black pepper and more) and look forward to trying it in some recipes in the future!
