What To Eat Next: Tofu Banh Mi


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!

If you are planning a trip to Norfolk, you may want to try staying at The Blakeney Hotel, which is located very close to the National Trust Blakeney National Nature Reserve and provides easy access to the Blakeney to Stiffkey Coastal Path.  For those on a budget, basic accommodations in an historic Victorian hotel are available at the De Paris Hotel in nearby Cromer.


Where To Buy: Refurbished Vitamix Blenders

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.


Where To Buy: New Apple iPhone Trade-In Program

If you are looking to buy an iPhone SE, you may want to look into Apple’s new trade-in program, which includes 0% monthly financing for your new phone and applies the value of your old phone to discount the price of the new phone.  In order to enroll in the program, you will need to visit an Apple store.  However, via an online transaction, you can trade-in your old phone for an Apple gift card.
