Since we’re sort of starting over on ValerieBrett.com after eyechow, I decided to start numbering my WIAW posts, rather than labeling where I was that day (let’s be honest: I’m probably at home in Honolulu).
A couple weeks ago now, in January, I tried out this CocoMama quinoa cereal that was one of my Christmas stocking stuffers!
It didn’t look pretty since I ate it straight from the pan, but it was quick and easy to make. I mixed in Sun Potion’s Prash (a mixture of ghee, honey and healing herbs) and local bee pollen. I probably wouldn’t have chosen the fruity flavor for myself, but it wasn’t bad. My first snack was an apple banana with Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookie Butter (omg!) – a combination I highly recommend.
I found a huge, glass cup with a lid for $6 at Williams Sonoma recently and I love filling it with coffee or chai and almond milk, on the go. This is what my car looks like most days as I run between jobs and teaching yoga: books everywhere, big coffee, cute lunchbox.
I’m a big snacker. My next one was this adorable little local tangerine. Yum!
I ate a small lunch at work: local cherry tomatoes, pretzel sticks and peanut butter.
As a midday pick-me-up, I had a Peppermint Bark tea, leftover from a box my friend sent me over the holidays 🙂
It didn’t quite satisfy the
sugar chocolate craving I had, though, so I had to have some dark chocolate.
Next I worked my second job, then headed to teach my late Wednesday yoga class. On the way, I snacked on an apple sauce and Maui onion macadamia nuts.
I taught my power yoga class, and we had live music! If that’s something you’re interested in, follow me on Instagram, which is where I announce my special events.
After class, my boyfriend made a simple sauce for butternut squash ravioli: olive oil, garlic and sun-dried tomatoes.
For dessert, I dug into another one of my Christmas gifts: organic candy drops.
These are perfect because they come in awesome tropical flavors, and are really small and sweet, meaning you can satisfy your sweet tooth with just one.
