If your like me and haven't even begun Christmas shopping. I want to make it easy on you. What do you get a person who you don't really know that well but want to get them something nice that they are not going to see on sale at let's say West Elm and Anthropologie. Two of my favorite store by the way for gifts.
When the weather is hot, I like to eat Muesli instead of cooked oatmeal. Homemade Muesli is very simple to make. You really don't need a recipe. You can use pretty much whatever dry fruit and nuts you like or have on hand to raw oatmeal. Dried dates and chopped pecans are a delicious combo. Add Chia, flax and hemp seeds for a nutritional boost. Make a big batch and store it in a jar. I just make a single serving so that I can change it up everyday if I want. What going in your muesli? Let me know.
Just got these vitamins from Amazon yesterday. YAY! I'm looking forward to trying the Raw One Multi for Women. I'm taking a break from New Chaper Womens Multi, which I do like. I also have never tried this brand of fish oil but I wanted to try something new. The last thing I got was Vitamin D3 gummies. I have to hide them from myself because they are so yummy and I can only eat one if I also take a multi. I'm curious to know what vitamins and other natural supplements you like and why?
Happy Valentine's Day! Or Happy Love Day whatever you prefer. Today I'm going to show the special people and the not so special people in my life I care about them. I know we are only sold the image of Valentine's Day for romantic relationships, but I want to broaden that image. It can really suck and be a painful day for the people who don't have that sort of relationship. Some folks like to use today as a day to show off how many roses they received etc.. I don't like that and I think it's lame. I think today should be spent doing random acts of kindness.
So on that note make a special treat for your kids, co-workers, neighbor, boss, friends or enemy.
This chocolate treat is amazing. Please note fudge must be chilled at least 2 hours before devouring.
