Friday Favorites (8/15)

Happy Friday! Here are some of the things that have made me happy this week…   Kevita Sparkling Probiotic Drink in Pomegranate I picked this up at Whole Foods yesterday, and I just wish that I got more than one bottle.  I absolutely love the flavor and the fact that it is sweetened with stevia and organic and non-GMO.  For anyone who is interested, it is also vegan, dairy free, and gluten free.   Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos Soy-Free Seasoning Sauce This is an incredible alternative to regular soy sauce- and it is much...
