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!

What are *you* loving lately?

    I am loving ice coffee too… like wayyyy too much though lol! I keep buying them in the afternoon and mmm just so tasty :) Not bad for you of course, but money wise… err not so much lol
    I really do no like almond milk but the coconut one is intriguing me… I might go and try some later today! I have a Whole Foods trip planned anyway

    I can’t believe you got all that for $6! That’s amazing! Especially considering Whole Foods charges $6 for seaweed alone. Ugh. 😛

    I just recently tried that almond coconut milk too, but I have the sweetened kind. I like it, but I wish I could taste the coconut flavour more!

      I know, right, Chelsea? You could try just the plain coconut milk kind – i think you’d taste the flavor more then, and it’s almost as tasty and creamy!

    You are so lucky that you have Asian Markets near to where you live. I have to go so out of my way to get those awesome products! Asian food is so much fun to make :) I’ve actually been loving Asian noodle bowls with peanut sauce lately – they’re so delish!

    BTW, I nominated your blog for the “Inspiring Blog Award!” (http://healthykitschyvegan.wordpress.com/2012/07/23/mindful-monday-the-future-is-completely-open/)

    Asian markets ARE the best! There is a really big one in Nashville that I don’t get to visit often (probably a good thing as far as my wallet is concerned), but I am in love with their dish selection! And the last time I was there, I actually picked up a sushi mat so I could try my hand at making homemade sushi…that was over 6 months ago…and I’ve yet to try it out! Lol

    That noodles dish sounds delicious. I’ve never had green tea soba noodles before…I’ll have to see if I can find them.

    What I’ve been loving lately:

    My new filtered Camelbak bottle…I’ve seriously been CHUGGING water like non-stop!

    Yogi ginger tea…gets me through the sub-arctic temperatures of the hospital while on my night shift AND helps my tummy a bit since I’m still not really used to eating a meal/snack at 3am.

    And my new casein protein powder made into frosting! I’ve been looking forward to breakfast every day this week! 😉

      Ooh sounds fab, Heather! I know what you mean with the dishes – it takes some serious self control not to buy out the shop! The soba noodles are quite good – look for “cha soba” (tea soba noodles). I’m pretty sure whole foods has them as well, but they’re a million times cheaper at Asian stores.
