Lifestyles of the humble and healthy

After trying the Vanilla Chai Tea on a particularly busy errand day, I became hooked on the stuff. Bolthouse Farms has a pretty good chunk of products at the local Publix store. My favorite treats from them come from their beverage line. Be sure to check them out at your local mega market or Whole Foods (if you're lucky enough to have one) or even Fresh Market.

I've got to say, the whole summer of eating healthy revolution has really turned me on to some great stuff. Only reason I wrote about Bolthouse Farms today is that I brought in one of the C-Boost because I am feeling kinda puny and need to give my immune system a helping hand. Some of the other great things I've tried and switched to include whole wheat pasta (never thought I'd see the day!), all kinds of uses for black beans, oodles of products from Kashi, yummy couscous from Near East, and an overall better sense of well being. To be honest, I never gave this lifestyle change much credit but today I can not ever see myself going back.

They call me...

The Mistress of Cooking with a house that smells so fine you lose track of time, er, um, yeah, something like that.

So after feeling pretty puny for most of Saturday I decided to make up for it by cooking for the rest of the weekend. Lots of good eats to be sure but my dishpan hands are another story. Healthy eats are to be had at my little abode. Hopefully, this cooking trend will last and I can finally have some pennies in my piggy bank.
