Five Things in My World
I basically just wanted to share with you a few little things in my life right now because you might enjoy them too! Are you experiencing chilly weather? My walk with the dogs this morning was a cold one, but I bundled up so it felt refreshing. This morning I broke out the headband ear warmer. Wow does it make a difference when your ears aren’t cold!
I came back from the walk and had a new flavor of tea that came into my life over the weekend. My husband was introduced to it at a friend’s house over the weekend (thank you lovely lady, you know who you are) and now I’m hooked. The brand is Rishi Tea and the flavor is Silver Need Jasmine. I find it to be a very relaxing tea. I also love that it’s organic. I’ll warn you, it’s definitely not cheap (we paid close to $15 for the box of loose leaf), but going to Starbucks isn’t cheap either, so I figure this is still a better deal. I found it in the Nature’s Market section at Wegmans.
My Mom gave me a lot of the Simply balanced organic fruit strips. I’ve been told you can get them at Target. Sometimes at work I just want something sweet and this does the trick. It’s kind of like a fruit rollup, but organic and better for you. And then I’ve been having more fun tea as well. I believe I received that Serengeti Team Company Earl Grey tea sample in a Vegan Cuts Box (check out the Vegan Cuts Snack Box – so fun!). Definitely a fun alternative from the typical tea bag.
Oh this book – The Food Revolution -is rocking my mind. I’m only ¼ of the way through and every page I read I’m blown away. As you can tell I’m really into reading about the power of a plant-based diet, so this kind of literature completely intrigues me. I love it. However, I truly believe this book appeals to the masses and I encourage you all to read it.
I made Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcakes last night for my husband to take to a work conference today. Those lucky teachers. Of course I had to try one to make sure they were delicious. No worries, they were.
And lastly, I had celery and that homemade vegan peanut butter cup for breakfast Monday morning. Well I started my day with Yerba Mate tea and I had an appointment really early, so I didn’t eat breakfast until I got to work, and that snack food just looked good. I went back and forth between a celery stick and a peanut butter cup bite. Thank goodness we gave the rest of the peanut butter cups away to friends over the weekend!
So there you have it, a few things from my world.
Are you a fan of tea? What’s your favorite?
