(no)sugar, spice & everything nice

It was C-O-L-D cold this week! And that meant two things…

1.) I felt the need to listen to Christmas music! (And thus broke my anti-Christmas-music-before-thanksgiving stance)

2.) I’ve entered into every minute of the day hot beverage mode.

Now during the day I drink my fair share of black coffee. But that caffeine can get to your head (even though my homemade blend is 1/2caff)…especially before bed. So, I branch out to my homemade Peppermint Mocha. It’s delicious, dairy-free, sugar-free and all of 15 calories. BOOM, you’re welcome…enjoy!

Mix together first three ingredients. Let tea steep for approx 3 minutes. Stir, sip, savor.

Who needs Starbucks?!?? 😀

The Best You Never Had

I would insert the appropriate Beyonce clip here buuutttt she’s pretty much half-naked in it the whole time so um no thanks.

But this stuff seriously might be the best thing you’ve never had… (well besides homemade Kombucha this is)

yogi tea

 

Yogi teas are delicious! I just got my Swanson Vitamins order and that Caramel Apple Spice Snack Tea was waiting for me in the box… Mmm Mmm! I put a little liquid vanilla stevia in it and it’s seriously a wonderful afternoon snack! You might be able to sneak a little ACV in there too for some probiotic power 🙂

The Mayan Cocoa Spice tea is hands down THE BEST after dinner “dessert” tea I’ve ever tasted. I sweeten it with a little liquid chocolate stevia and it’s a party in your mouth!

I also got a few birthday presents from Swanson… sharing the Yogi Tea and PB2 love!

I also realized today I haven’t posted anything about my Cossfit endeavors yet (I’ve been at it for two weeks now…loving it). Plank a Day in May is still going strong though. So, in an effort to Stop Instagramming My “Perfect Life” here’s my latest Challenge Loop post: after 2, 90sec medicine ball planks…mmm sweaty and sans makeup
