About Eat Like Me

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Eat Like Me blog! I'm Emma- a Nutrition major & kind of a health nut! I'm really into eating healthy & nourishing my body. It amazes me how much food can really affect your life and change the way you feel. I've been into healthy eating since I was a teen and I wanted to share my interest with all of you! I'll admit that I have days when I do not make the best food choices but my goal is to just get back on track and stay healthy as often as I can. Of course, eating healthy doesn't mean I don't get to enjoy my food. There are lots of flavorful, healthy foods & recipes, and even desserts! On this blog I will share with you what I eat, along with recipes & pictures. You could use my blog as a guide to healthy eating, or just for recipes and ideas!

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Spread (10.17.10)

I guess Trader Joe's has some new products out for the season, because this was one I hadn't seen before. Being that it "struck my fancy" and I was very curious as to how it would be, I decided to buy the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread and give it a try. I had it for my snack this afternoon, smeared onto a whole wheat toasted English muffin with some pear slices on the side. Now we all know that sweetened cream cheese isn’t exactly a health food. But in small amounts, this cream cheese can turn an ordinary snack into something really unique. To describe it at best I would say it had a light, but
tangy gentle flavor with a hint of pumpkin and spice. The pumpkin was in no way overpowering, but was definitely recognizable. It was a little sweet, but not in such way that I would call it dessert (although it does look like cupcake icing). It tasted to me, in simple context, like regular cream cheese with a hint of pumpkin. It's very festive looking and would be an ideal spread for parties, but being that I don't eat cream cheese very often, I probably wouldn't buy it again. It was however rather tasty, so I will enjoy my container while it lasts. I think next time I'll have it on a bagel!
