I've posted in the past about True Lemon and its brethren True Lemon and True Lime. I really love these products because I never seem to have fresh lemons and limes in the fridge when I really want one. Especially in these sweltering hot days of summer when I want nothing more than a big glass of lemonade. Over the weekend I made myself a "virgin mojito" by putting a packet of True Lime, a spring of fresh mint from the garden, and a pack of Truvia in a glass of ice water. Not as much fun as a rum drink, but I'm not all that big on drinking alcohol when it's sweltering. Especially after I've come in from walking the dog and want something to guzzle.
My recipe is pretty basic, but the True Citrus line can be used in place of fresh citrus juice in more complex recipes, too. And True Citrus is kicking off a recipe contest starting today! All of the information can be found here and here. The winner will receive a $500 Visa gift card and 4 others will each receive a $100 Visa gift card - hello! Time to start tinkering with recipes.
Also today is a Ustream online chat with Diane Henderiks, the Dietician in the Kitchen. Diane is a culinary nutritionist, personal chef, culinary educator, and monthly on-air contributor for Good Morning America Health and will be discussing nutrition tips and all of the different ways you can cook with the entire True Citrus product line. Participants can ask Diane anything from the different ways they can cook with True Citrus, to general nutrition questions and more. To participate in the chat, click here or go to http://truelemon.com/community/live.html.
I'll probably not have time to chat because, well, I do have to *work.* If you participate and learn something interesting, please fill me in! In the meantime, I'll be contemplating recipes (as I usually do).
