Finally it’s Friday, this week seemed to last forever. It’s weird how weeks either pass by fast or slow, never at normal speed. Does that even make sense? Probably not…anyways.
Sometimes life likes to get hectic on us. This has been one of those weeks. They happen, maybe I’ll get into it more later, but for now let’s end the week on a light note in the form of another round of coffee talk. So grab a cup and let’s get to it.
1. For some reason I’m completely obsessed with smoothies.
I used to be a total non smoothie person. Assuming they’d never fill me up, that they just didn’t work for me. Now I have at least 3 a week.
2. Speaking of smoothies, if you can’t have whey or don’t eat it buy the sun warrior (warrior blend)!
Using brown rice protein powder, made my smoothies have the taste and texture of dirt. The new sun warrior (cranberry, pea, and hemp blend) is absolutely amazing and I can’t get over how much better it is than the brown rice versions!
Also, I understand now that to make a smoothie filling, I must add adequate fats (avocado, nut butter, chia seeds), good quality protein (sun warrior), and veggies/fruits (berries, bananas, spinach, romaine).
That may make me lame, but we all know how much I love my Americano’s. Plus, it’s made to please the strong coffee lovers. Just how I like my americanos; black and strong.
4. My obsession with tea is getting out of control.
A trip to the mall today resulted in tea and book purchases. I couldn’t even believe it when I looked at the receipts and the tea happened to be more expensive than the books I bought?! Since when is this allowed to happen? Not too long ago, a trip to the book store would make my wallet cry, but I managed to escape with 2 great books, only $26! In a world where tea is more expensive than books, it’s just not right. Must be because all the e-readers now a days.
5. This video I first saw on Chelsea Lately, had me dying a little on the inside.
I honestly couldn’t contain my laughter. I’m not even too sure why I find it so funny, it just is.
6. Remember when Laguna Beach was all the rage and everyone was totally obsessed with the red cups?
Well, take a look at these fancy upgrades of them. I’m embarrassed to say I’d totally use these, because I still happen to think they’re pretty neat.
With that, I bid you adieu!
What’s some coffee talk you’d like to share from the week?
Any new food items you’re loving that I need to try out?
Do you prefer “real books” or books via e-readers? I just love paper books so much, I can’t get on board with my e-reader. I tried to love it, but just miss the book experience too much. I’m a nerd.
Have a beautiful Friday!
