Cough Cough

HI!

DSC03336

This is what I am doing tonight: drinking tea. Looks like my cold has hit me once again – damnit. It’s my throat that’s bothering me this time… cough… cough…. cough. AND I was supposed to go to my friends, Sam, house for a card party and I totally forgot! =( But I don’t think she would want my sick butt around her or her guests.

While grocery shopping I picked up this variety pack of teas:

And I quickly choose the Throat Coat – it’s really good! Sweet with licorice!

I really suck at drinking water during the winter months so I am hoping my tea stash will start helping me drink more fluids, besides coffee.

And speaking of coffee, I tried a packet of Starbucks Via this morning.

I wasn’t in the mood to really need a full cup or to dirty the coffee pot so I tried a packet. It was pretty simple to make: pour grounds in a cup, add HOT water, stir and let sit for a minute. (I’m not sure if this is part of the actual directions but it helped with the taste and body)

The verdict? Meh. It had that “sour” taste that I hate in coffee. I can see this being good for a Coffee Crisis (!!) but not everyday.

I also had some sprouted toast with PB and some blueberry Oikos.

The J and I cleaned up in the kitchen – he LOVES to help!

Even though I wasn’t feeling well I decided to hit the gym anyway. Just some light running and hill walking. It felt great even though I REALLY did not want to go.

I refueled with a Green Brown Monster.

  • almond milk
  • strawberries
  • frozen peaches and berries
  • flax meal
  • Chocolate Amazing Meal
  • spinach
  • 3 clementines

Sweet but good! I haven’t had Amazing Meal in a while because I really am not find of the chocolate flavor. But I felt I needed the extra nutrients.

And here is J’s HUGE pile of toys! Poor kid, I think he’s neglected! 😉

A few hours later I had lunch 2 – just a fun plate of goodness!

A carrot, celery, Mary’s crackers, olives, mozz cheese and the rest of my hummus. Just an FYI about me: I declare olives their own food group. I LOVE OLIVES! Black or green – I could just pop them al day long! I think it has to do with putting them on my fingers when I was a kid! 😉

I still have no idea what I am going to have for dinner – I’m not that hungry but since it’s 8:30 I better think of something. I recieved a few emails about our vase that is on our mantle so I thought I would show it off some more!

We found it at Costco this summer right after we bought our home. They ad a traveling showcase and we were lucky to go to the Costco that had the stand! It instantly reminded me of the Ocean! The original owners of our home had a blown piece of glass and it was so elegant! We knew we had to copy and find one of our own.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a great night! I just watched Shrek the Halls – LOVED IT!

    Your green brown monster sounds healthy and delicious. I'll have to give it a try. What measurements do you use for the ingredients?
