There are some new things getting me going this week:

  1. Cold brew coffee.  I wish I could bottle this up, but I mean, it already is bottled.  I think I’d just like to drink it and rebottle it just so I can drink it over and over!
  2. Hibiscus tea over ice.  Does anyone know what the health benefits are of hibiscus tea?  I remember it being something, but now I can’t find exactly what I thought it was.
  3. Trader Joe’s peanut butter with flax and chia seeds.  This texture is divine!  And it almost tastes like  dessert.
  4. Maca in my salad/my salad this week in general.  I was skeptical that I was adding too much but something about everything just works!
