Favorite Things (Part 4)

It has been awhile since I’ve done a post on my favorite things of the moment, and I have some good ones to share today!

Glass Dharma Straws

I ordered one of these straws recently, and now I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner.  Honestly, I didn’t really believe all of the hype over them at first.  How amazing could a straw really be anyway?  Well, the first time that I used my new straw, I literally drank my words.  They are the absolute perfect thickness for drinking smoothies, and they make buying plastic disposable straws a thing of the past.  I was a little worried that it might be difficult to clean, but the straw cleaned up so easily.  I was definitely pleasantly surprised, and I now definitely believe the hype.


White Chocolate Wonderful by Peanut Butter & Co.

I’m honestly kind of obsessed with this stuff.  It is amazing.  Amazing.  AMAZING!  I love how it is so easy to find in stores (even Walmart sells it), and it isn’t expensive.  Not only does it taste wonderful, as the name suggests, it “contains no cholesterol, no trans fats, no hydrogenated oils, and no high-fructose corn syrup. It is also gluten-free, certified vegan, and certified kosher pareve by the Orthodox Union” (according to the official website).  Basically, it can make anyone happy!

Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin

This is my all-time favorite canned pumpkin.  I know it isn’t exactly pumpkin season right now, but I cannot help using this stuff.  It goes into my oatmeal, quinoa, kamut flakes, and into my smoothies on a regular basis.  All. Year. Round.  When I see the cans in the store, I go into hoarder mode and feel the need to buy as many as I can get my hands on.

Jack LaLanne Power Juice Deluxe

If you’re a frequent reader of The Grass Skirt, you’ll know that it is no secret that I am obsessed with juicing.  And of course, this would not be possible without my Power Juice Deluxe.  I love how this juicer is fairly easy to clean and pretty quiet as well.  Michael sleeps right through it running in the morning.  Then again, it isn’t like I use it in our room.  If you’re in the market to buy a juicer, I’d definitely recommend this one.


Coco Exposed by Alo Drink

I’ve mentioned before that I love drinking Aloe Vera juice and coconut water because they are both so hydrating.  Well, imagine my excitement last week when I found a new line by ALOdrink that combines the two?!  I’ll be honest, the Goji Berry + Lychee flavor was kind of gross, but I love the Passion Fruit + Pineapple and Peach + Kiwi flavors.  I love having Aloe juice and coconut water in one bottle.  It is the best of both worlds!  (Hopefully, you don’t have the Hannah Montana theme song in your heads now.)

  1. White Chocolate Wonderful… how I love thee! And all the PB&Co peanut butters- YUMMY!!

    • thegrassskirt

      I totally agree! I haven’t met a PB&Co flavor that I haven’t loved!

  2. I love the idea of purchasing glass straws. Typically I use plastic, which is so wasteful!

    PB & Co. White Chocolate Wonderful truly is wonderful. I go through phases with all of their peanut butters…Right now I’m loving Cinnamon Raisin Swirl (especially with bananas!).

    I’ve never tried aloe vera juice, but this post has definitely piqued my interest!

      Aloe Vera juice is great! I wrote a post all about it, but basically, not all brands are created equal. I had one from Trader Joe’s once that was disgusting! I love the Alo brand the best. 🙂

  3. Oh dang, guess I need to believe the Dharma hype too then? I’ve been wanting one, but like you, wasn’t sure if they would live up to their talked about greatness. Time to purchase one! 🙂

      You seriously need to get one! I really and truly didn’t think I’d love it as much as I do.

  4. LOVING your favorites! I just discovered the joys of peanut butter & co cinnamon raisin PB, and I had to restrain myself from buying all different flavors when I saw them at whole foods! Can’t wait to try white chocolate wonderful! 🙂

  5. I love anything white chocolate, so of course I would love white chocolate peanut butter. Best combo ever!

      White chocolate is my very favorite…even more than regular chocolate!

  6. I’m going out tomorrow to try and find the White Chocolate Wonderful Peanut Butter. Sounds AMAZING! Yum!

      You’ll love it, Anna! I’ve seen it at Walmart and Harris Teeter. I’ve never looked in Target, but they probably have it too. 🙂
