Love, love, love, my new Breville juicer from Crate and Barrel. Every other day, I make fresh juice and keep it in the fridge for the next morning. Once you’re spoiled with the fresh taste, you’ll be reluctant to go back to bottled ones. Sorry, Naked…i’m totally cheating on you. =(
I always keep my fridge stocked with fresh OJ, apple, and carrot juice. My specialty is a blend of all 3, and it’s so delicious. Another favorite of mine from Eple (@ the Grove) is Apple Ginger. I’m going to have to try that at home next time.
I made a fresh batch to take with me over the wknd, but discovered that my internal calendar was totally off. I thought it was already Friday, but today is Thursday. So, I had to finish up the juices I made and packed for the weekend. =(
Most people tend to gain a few pounds over the holiday season because of all those decadent desserts, but why not be smart and make your own healthy treats.
I was in Williams Sonoma last week doing some Christmas shopping, and ran into this cute ice pop maker called Zoku. At first, I was really skeptical about it claiming to make frozen treats in about 7 minutes. Since WS has a great return policy, I decided to scoop one up and give it a try. WS carries really great products, and they also have really helpful sales reps that will answer any questions you have about the products they carry.
JP was at the store, so I told him to pick up some juice for the ice pop maker. He was a bit confused, but got some Santa Cruz juice for me anyways. I love that brand, since they don’t add extra sugar in their juices. He brought back Strawberry Lemonade and Pink Grapefruit. After 10 minutes, voila!
I must admit, Cup O’ Noodles has always been one of my favorite snacks ever. Eventhough I rarely have Cup O’ Noodles anymore, I’d love to upgrade to these fabulous ceramic cups. It just feels legit eating out of ceramic with 18/10 stainless steel baby!
