My Fall 2013 Wish List

My Fall 2013 Wish List

I absolutely love coming up with must-haves and wish lists at the start of each new season. I guess I’m partly hoping that, if I throw these lists out into the universe, everything on them will magically appear at my doorstep. A little wishful thinking never hurt anyone, right? I know that the season isn’t officially upon us yet, but I already have all things fall on my mind. Here’s my fall-inspired list!     1. Frye Paige Trapunto Boots 2. Collection Cashmere Textured-Stitch Sweater (J. Crew) 3. Tarte Amazonian...

Favorite Things (August 2013)

Favorite Things (August 2013)

It is a few days late, but I still wanted to share a lot of the things that I loved using and eating during the month of August. Some of these should come as no surprise. 😉     1. Coco Mama Banana Cinnamon Quinoa Cereal I already dedicated an entire post to this cereal, but I had to bring it up again.  It is so so good! The brand name kind of threw some people off because it makes it sound like the product contains chocolate.  This might disappoint some of you, but it actually does not contain cocoa.   2. Michael Todd...

July 2013 Favorites

  Happy August! I don’t have a ton of favorites to share from the month of July, but I definitely have some things to show that I haven’t already mentioned 1,001 times. You know the ones that get constant love here… strawberry Zevia, chocolate ZICO, coconut oil… You can just safely assume that they all have permanent spots on these lists. 😉       That’s it bars (apples + cherries) These bars contain minimal ingredients, and they are vegan and gluten-free.  I love to carry them in my...

What I’m loving lately

Before I share all of the products that I’ve been loving lately, I need to warn you that the list is a little heavy on the coconut. Actually, the majority of the things below relate to coconut in some way. I don’t know what it is with me and coconut lately.  I didn’t even include coconut oil, coconut water, and coconut flour because I was afraid that I’d seem a bit too obsessed. This is getting almost as bad as my pumpkin addiction!   1. Trader Joe’s coconut oil spray I’ve been using this spray like...

What I’m loving lately

I apologize in advance for all of the beverages I’m about to mention.  I didn’t realize it until I wrote this post, but apparently, I’m a very thirsty person!     Zevia soda Even though I craved it when I was pregnant, I normally never drink regular soda.  (You can read all about how I kicked my habit here.) Still- drinking water can get boring sometimes (even when I flavor it with fruit), and I do like some carbonation sometimes.   I love drinking Zevia every now and then because it doesn’t contain sugar...

(Image source for the photo of the dates)   Bragg Liquid Aminos I love using this to make things like veggie stir fry and salmon because it only contains a small amount of natural sodium and no table salt.  It tastes just like soy sauce but won’t leave you with all of the bloat!   TerrAmazon Organic Cacao Powder with Maca I actually dislike the taste of maca (which has been nicknamed “The Fountain of Youth”) but cannot even detect it at all when I use this powder in my smoothies and hot chocolate (which I make by...
