Food Stylin'

One of the most fun & enjoyable projects I have done was working with Bison Foods.  The staff at McElveney & Pallozzi (the hiring marketing firm out of Rochester, NY) were wonderful to work with and the employees of Bison were equally as great!  I developed a line of recipes for them using their cottage cheese, sour cream and chip dip products.  This photo was from the Sunday coupons.  I food styled these products to be used in coupon inserts and billboards around the Rochester and Buffalo area. What an incredibly rewarding experience!

The Skinny:
Although sour cream and chip dip are generally labeled as "fattening," Bison Foods makes reduced fat versions of their products.  As always though, everything in moderation.  Anything eaten in large amounts can be considered "fattening."  I absolutely LOVE Bison products (as I'm sure a lot of you do as well)!  If given the opportunity, I would choose full fat versions of the products and just eat less.  Enjoying full flavor and having a smaller portion helps to curb cravings (this way you won't binge on it when you do allow yourself to have it).  Bake up some homemade sliced sweet potato chips (be sure to soak in cold water first and drain thoroughly - then sprinkle with a little sea salt) instead of bagged fried potato chips and you're good!  Use fresh veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, celery, baby carrots, pear tomatoes, sliced bell peppers, even jicama slices (what is jicama? - A Mexican root vegetable and it is delish)!!!  Check Bison out at
