cookbook, food, what to eat next


Who doesn’t find lunch to be a conundrum?  At MfL, we are always looking for simple, quick, and healthy lunch options, which now include our Tofu Banh Mi.  To make this, you will need two slices of tofu, half a cucumber, a carrot, a few cilantro stems, Sriracha, vegetable butter spread, and two thinly sliced pieces of toasted bread.  We also recommend sauteing the tofu for three minutes in 1 t. tamari, 1/2 t. honey/agave, and 1/4 t. Sriracha.  Enjoy!


Where To Buy: Refurbished Vitamix Blenders

appliances, food, home, on sale

MfL has tested out several blenders, and we consistently find that Vitamix really is the industry standard. While certainly worth the investment at the retail price of $400 – $500, this is a major purchase. As a result, we were excited to learn that Vitamix is now selling refurbished models for $299, a significant discount off the price of the new models. Even better, the refurbished models come with A FIVE YEAR WARRANTY included in the sales price.
