Ahhhhh, tea. Like daily hugs in a cup. :)

I drink 2-3 cups a day, and before bed I absolutely LOVE a little herbal action. I try to pick up at least one new flavor a month, though mint & lemon ginger are my favs.

What are your favorites? Anything I just NEED to try?

Seriously…

Kiwi berry is a species within the Actinidia family. It’s a natural berry (not genetically engineered in a lab) and is rich in Vitamin C, high in fiber and a great source of potassium, vitamin E and magnesium.

When eaten unripe, they are a little on the sour “candy” side and a little crunchy/hard. They ripen fast, get soft and darker and get really sweet: kinda like kiwi flavored grapes. To extend their shelf life, keep them refrigerated: they typically last from 5-10 days in the fridge once ripe.

They’re awesome in fruit salads, as a snack on their own and can be added to pretty much any recipe that calls for fruit. I also like them frozen and used as ice cubes in my favorite drinks.

Plus… they’re adorable. You don’t get much cuter than tiny kiwis. :)

How stunning is this color? Hard to go wrong with Green Monster deliciousness, no matter what your favorite recipe . :)

(Mine: Banana, Mango, Greek yogurt, spinach, ice and a little water/juice to blend if it’s too thick. Heaven).

What’s your fav monster combo?

Girls and women of the world, could we stop apologizing for wanting and eating food? Because this is one of the most ridiculous things that we do collectively as lady-people, and not only does it annoy the shit out of me personally, but it is also INCREDIBLY SAD. Could we stop feeling “guilty” for wanting an effing brownie? Or a plate of fries? Could we stop actively seeking permission from our friends to go ahead and “be bad” and order the cheesecake? Could we all just go ahead and order whatever it is that we feel like eating, instead of saying, “Oh, I feel like a pig, you guys are just getting salads”?

Because—now I know this will come as a shock—WOMEN EAT. We get hungry. We get hungry for pizzas and Double Stuf Oreos and nachos and ice cream and giant French-toast breakfasts, and you know what? WE DON’T NEED TO FEEL BAD ABOUT THAT.

What’s your “happy drink”?

There’s nothing quite like a big ass salad.

Gettin’ fresh!

(been trying to get that line to catch on, lol. My friend Anna tells me constantly “Stop trying to make fresh happen. It’s never gonna happen!!”)

It’s happening. I do what I want.:)

Happy Thanksgiving weekend to my fellow canucks!

I’m missing out on turkey and dinner this year, so PLEASE have a little something-something for me (and tell me ALL about it. I want every delicious detail, down to the smell).

Have fun and feel good! No guilt allowed on a day you should be thankful for what you have. :)

"A 3-year-old ponders the consequences of his dietary decisions while going to the bathroom…"

I laughed until I cried, lol. We’ve ALL been there!

(don’t worry, we don’t get a glimpse IN to the bathroom. Just mom trying not to giggle outside the door as her son talks to himself and vows “never to eat that much again”).

PRICELESS.

Read more below. Thoughts? Would you shop at a “past due” grocery store?

New grocery store and restaurant to sell only food that passed its best-before date, but is still perfectly fine to eat

Coming soon: A grocery store and restaurant that sells only food that has passed its sell-by date.

The Boston-area outlet will offer fruits, vegetables and prepared dishes made from food that is past its prime, but still perfectly fine to eat. It is the brainchild of Doug Rauch, the former president of American grocery store giant Trader Joe’s, and slated to open next spring.

But even as a new report from Harvard University finds that best-before labels are often misinterpreted, routinely damning safe and tasty food items to the dumpster, experts say the initiative might be a tough sell to the modern grocery shopper — even those in the lower income bracket that The Daily Table project is targeting.

“We have become, as a society in developed countries, paranoid about our food — paranoid about the perfect nature of it and paranoid about the safety of it,” said Martin Gooch, the CEO of Value Chain Management International, an Oakville, Ont., based company that helps agricultural and food businesses achieve long-term profit and environmental sustainability.

While our parents or grandparents may have relied on the actual look, taste and smell of a forgotten cup of yogurt to determine its safety and freshness, younger generations may be more inclined to rely on the often conservative estimate on the label. (Photo: Ian Waldie/Bloomberg)
