a few of my favorite things…

May 15, 2009

I got out of work a little early today and it is BEAUTIFUL in Boston! On my way home I stopped at whole foods to pick up a gift for my BFF but I of course got something for myself too!  I have had a strange craving for coffee flavored yogurt all week.  Enter…CIMG0831

Mocha one ups coffee in my book.  I stirred in a spoonful of cashew butter for the PERFECT afternoon snack.  I was WAY too happy while eating this.  Today I was reading an article about emotional eating.  If people are emotional eaters the pleasure center in their brain is triggered after eating sweets; while those who eat sweets but are not emotional eaters do not experience the same thing.  I guess I’m an emotional eater because food makes me happy!

I also read about a study in which researchers gave two groups the same milkshake but told one group it was low-fat.  The group who thought it was low-fat were less satisfied than the group who wasn’t told.  INTERESTING!

I also treated myself to this.  It is a blend of raspberry, ginger and lemon.  And like any Kombucha it tastes like it is spiked with vinegar but I LOVE IT!  It makes me feel slightly drunk after wards and  I get all tingly.  Does this happen to anyone else? It costs $3.39 but I figure that is about the cost of a beer and since I get a slight buzz it’s all worth it.  I just can’t buy too many.

I refused to try these for the longest time because this is what they look like on the bottom.  IT’S ALIVE! kinda yucky

This is in my fridge right now…*sigh*! I ran out of both cashew and almond butter this week! It was so sad! Clearly I have stocked up since.

Oh and this was on sale, and my Aunt picked it up but since no one else likes it in the house I will be drinking it.  I actually like the mango flavor a lot more!  60 calories in 11 ounces plus lots of potassium and tastes yummy!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend planned! I got nothing as far as plans, but it feels so nice to be FREE!
