Things I Love: September 2014
Want a challenge? Try finding palatable herbal teas for someone who doesn’t like fruity blends.
I discovered a couple creative and tasty options from Paromi at my local Whole Foods. One has a soothing blend of lemon and ginger that shies away from anything too stringent (although I do like a bam-pow kick of both at times) and another has a nice chamomile, lavender mix.
I wish Paromi offered these teas in loose-leaf, rather than in tea bags, but as I often only want a single cup of herbal tea before bed, I can live without the teapot.
Sunfood Super Foods Raw Organic Cacao Nibs
If you love chocolate but try not to eat it too often (like this healthy eater), cacao nibs from Sunfood serve your cravings, cut out the bad stuff often included in processed chocolate (such as cream, added fats, sugars), and add valuable minerals and fiber to your diet. A win all around.
Add them to your baking (you don’t even need to adjust the other ingredients, I’ve found) for a chocolaty flavor and crunch or add them to savory foods, like chili, for a warming chocolate kick.
Door Hook from The Container Store
I got sick of carting my bags up and down from my bedroom closet and the clutter of leaving my briefcases on the floor or table near the garage door drove me nuts.
A quick trip to The Container Store gifted me with this handy, reasonably priced, easy-to-install (heck, even I could do it) door hook strap. The hooks adjust to carry differently sized bags, can hold a significant amount of weight, and the brackets barely show on the closed door.
