I have BEEN wanting to participate in this post hosted by Moxie Wife. I am sure you have been dying for me to participate too. Well you can stop holding your breath because here are my five favorites for the moment.
|pumpkin seeds (pepitas)|
I am completely, totally addicted to pumpkin seeds. I buy them raw from Whole Foods and roast them myself. They are fabulous! Roasting them brings out a nutty flavor. Besides, my favorite texture is hands-down CRUNCHY. The crunchier the better which leads me to...
|Whole Foods Seed-duction bread|
Favorite number two is the Seed-duction bread from Whole Foods. It is loaded with seeds- pumpkin, sunflower, flax seeds. But...just to add a little extra crunch...for breakfast I toast up a slice then add a layer of roasted pumpkin seeds on top. Did I mention I like crunchy foods?
Favorite three is the TV Show Arrested Development which I watch on Netflix. Reason number one for watching it is simply staring at Jason Bateman. Reason Number two is it is so freakin' funny. Whenever I am in a grumpy, umpty mood this is my medication of choice. Who needs pharmaceuticals when you have this?
Favorite four is Jeff Galloway. I am counting on his run-walk-run method to get my bad knees across the Disney Princess half-marathon finish line. I bought a book the other day (one of his many) titled something like...Running Until You Are 100. And I thought, Wow! Am I really being lumped in with the 100-year-olds? Some days these knees feel that way so, fair enough.
Favorite five are Tru Melange candles. They come in lots of sizes but my favorite is the 3.5 ounce tin. I get them at Whole Foods. They are fabulous enough to feel like a splurge yet cheap enough not to feel guilty about. I love Harmony which is a blend of vanilla and peppermint which the company states is "a radiant, grounding blend that fills you with quiet energy, keen insight and welcome optimism." I think that may be a little much for one small candle to live up to but one can always hope. See, you can sense my welcome optimism since burning it.
