Wow, I can’t even remember the last time I wrote a What I‘m Loving Lately (WILL) post! Besides my Trader Joe’s post, but that was too specific. It seems that I am still at a loss for original topics to write about, so once again I’m just going to share some recent favorite – of the foodie variety, and not.
1. Asian Markets.
Asian stores are a haven for awesome foodie ingredients and tools – and super cheap! I got a sushi mat, nori, organic silken tofu, and green tea soba, all for $6! Other great things to buy at asian markets: any seaweed products, miso, asian sauces and condiments (soy sauce, rice vinegar), tofu and soy products, rice, noodles, really cute small dishes, and more.
I had a delicious asian-style dinner – green tea soba with wakame, cucumber, hard-boiled egg, and peanut sauce (bottled – gotta use it up!).
2. Lemon water!
I will be the first to admit I don’t really like drinking water, because it tastes like nothing. But add some lemon, and I’ll happily guzzle 8+ glasses a day.
3. Iced Coffee
Cold-pressed coffee has been a life saver this summer. Since I don’t have a kettle, I can’t easily make hot coffee and chill it – but I do have a french press! So I make it overnight, press it in the morning, and I have delicious, cold coffee ready for the week. Also – in this heat, no hot coffee for this girl.
4. The creamiest non-dairy milk
I found a local store that sells it for only $2 – which is as cheap as what I’d get at TJ’s. This stuff is amazing in coffee – probably the closest consistency to dairy milk I’ve found. Yes, it does have starches and other added things, but for the moment I’m enjoying it.
5. Clarisonic Mia brush.
Yup, not a foodie thing – but this little guy has done wonders for my face! Not all of my acne has cleared up, but this brush makes my face feel super smooth and clean, I’ve noticed a difference in the size of my pores (not lying!), and it also just feels really cool on your face. So worth the investment!
6. DjRun app for Android
I actually haven’t used it yet, but I’m really excited to – the app analyzes all the music on your phone, and then you can play songs with a certain BPM to match your running pace. The only downside – if you have 1000+ songs, it takes forever to analyze.
I think that’s all for today. I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!
