HerbaSway!

I came home to another package today! I am on a roll! Herbasway sent me a killer package and Jackson was very curious about it, as you can tell:

They sent me 6 (!!!!) Anti-Oxidant Herbal liquid concentrates and 2 energy concentrates. I am so pumped to try all the awesome flavors!

Flavors: HerbaGreen Tea, Impeccably Peach Green Tea, Pomegrante, Blueberry, Cranberry and Creme de Chocolat

Along with two Orange Passion Fruit Energy Concentrates. I can’t wait to try this stuff out with my race this weekend! Yay!

I tried out the Pomegranate one first, since it’s my favorite. I heart Pomegranates. Check out all the benefits of them here.

Basically, all you do is take one dropper full of the concentrate and add it to water. You can also add all the flavors to milk, yogurt, ice cream, oatmeal, I may even throw some in my green monsters too! They go in EVERYTHING!
Then you shake and enjoy.

I have been so used to the stevia that I use being clear, so this was a little weird when I saw it was like actual juice I was putting into my water. But it was really good, a nice subtule taste. Gave the water a great taste, I think I could have added a little bit more of the concentrate. 
HerbaSway’s full line of liquid therapeutic dietary supplements effectively cleanses, nourishes energizes and balances your body, giving you more vitality and better health everyday.”
Sounds good to me! Honestly, I need something to put in my water like this. I love water, and I try not to drink any caffeine, but the water gets a little boring sometimes! I think this is a great product to mix up the boring water and get a lot of great vitamins and minerals which are super great for a healthy body!

Donuts for Breakfast

I was in a bit of a rush this am and didn’t have time to make my green monster. This was the first time I have missed my morning green in a while. I may not make it through the day! I did however bring with me some of Emily’s Desserts Donuts! I tried one of each: Cinnamon Sugar, Glazed, and Chocolate Dipped! In that order. I like to end my meals with chocolate. Is that bad? They are so good. Melt in your mouth fantastic. I really enjoyed them! So full of taste and pizazz! Yum! Yum! Yum!

Swine Flu, The Metro and a Little Bit of Human Courtesy

I ride the metro everyday. Twice a day in fact. Most of the time it isn’t the most enjoyable experience, but deal with it. I do not want to deal with it during this time of epidemic, pandemic flu nonsense. I have a real problem with people who are just rude and inconsiderate about the whole situation. When the woman sitting next to me, pulls out a box of tissues, starts sneezing and coughing and blowing her nose and even pulls out a nose spray, I have issues with this. If you are sick. Stay home. If you are sick during this epidemic/pandemic nonsense. Really stay home. DO NOT GET ON PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION. Seriously, how hard is it? People are coughing and carrying on, CLEARLY sick, and everyone else gives them dirty looks, but they don’t mind. It is rude, and I can’t believe something hasn’t been said to people about traveling on public transportation. I understand people have to get places and have things to do, but its just gross and again, inconsiderate.
I also don’t get the whole hand washing thing. I mean, I GET IT, but at the same time I don’t. If you cover your mouth when you cough, congratulations, gold star! But if you don’t wash your hands IMMEDIATELY after coughing/spreading germs on your hands, whats the point?! If you cough on your hand and then touch your keyboard, or coat, or handle on the metro, you are spreading germs to all those things, end of story. Am I right? And then, in turn, everyone else who touches those things spreads more germs. Unless you are disenfecting CONSTANTLY. I know this is the way of the world, and some germs are good, and blah blah, I just get frustrated when people are gross on the metro.
Another prime example: Two guys were screaming at each other on the metro yesterday because of this flu business. One guy was coughing and NOT covering his mouth. The other guy yelled at him, telling him to stop coughing all over everyone. Coughing guy says “Screw you” and it went downhill from there. People are on edge about all this, and its upsetting. I know the situation with the Swine Flu isn’t so bad yet, but it does seem to be getting worse everyday. This isn’t just about the outbreak, its about people being decent to other people. Sorry for the early morning rant, I just got all worked up about all this, and I feel better for writing it down. Thanks for reading. Happy posts to come later!

Emily’s Desserts!

I came home to a package today! Woohoo! I heart getting packages, and lets face it, who doesn’t love them?!

Check out this package: Emily’s Desserts! Wahoooo! I was so excited to try these.

Look at these beauties!
I got 4 awesome cookie flavors to test out: Coconut Cranberry, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Cherry Chocolate Pecan and Double Chocolate Chip. Ummmm….can we say heaven?!

I also received 3 types of vegan baked donuts: Glazed, Chocolate Dipped and Cinnamon Sugar! Triple YUM!

Clearly I had to rip open one of these babies and try it out. A bloggers gotta do what a bloggers gotta do! I went for Oatmeal Chocolate Chip and it was heaven. It was so moist and chewy and FULL of FLAVOR. I was totally not expecting it. It was so good. I am going to have to SAVOR these cookies because they are just incredible.

Emily’s Desserts has everything from cookies and donuts to vegan pizza, pretzel rods, vegan cocoa mix, favors for events of all occasions and even organic fair trade coffee!

Here is a little about Emily: “I was born and raised in Baltimore and baking has always been a passion of mine. Ever since I was a little girl I was in the kitchen making desserts. After becoming a vegetarian, then a short couple months later vegan; I realized that there were not many dessert options for vegans. I wanted it to be easier for someone who is becoming a vegan or just wants to try cruelty free cookies any time they want. My goal with this business to make great tasting desserts that everyone will know and love.”

What is a vegan cookie you may ask?

“A vegan cookie has no animal ingredients in it, so that means no butter, no eggs, no honey and no gelatin. The fact is these cookies are good for you, better tasting and are better for the environment. Undoubtedly these cookies will be the best you will ever eat!”

Thanks so much for the treats Emily! They are amazing.

P.F. Changs Night!

Tonight my dad took me out to P.F. Changs. I was supposed to run 2-3 miles tonight for my run on Sunday, but I figured dinner with the pops was more important!

I love the P.F. Changs sauces!

We started off with a classic fav in our fam: Chicken lettuce wraps! SO. YUM!

My own little lettuce wrap paradise!

Next up was vegetarian dumplings. Quite tasty!

Pops and I are good at sharing. Splitting two apps and a entree is the perfect size for my dad and me because I end up eating half of my share and saving the rest for lunch tomorrow! Winner!

We then split Mu Shu Chicken, which is another family fav.

My doggie bag!

I did manage to save a tad bit of room for a red velvet with cream cheese icing shooter. So. YUM!  Red Velvet cake is my absolute favorite. 

Fortune cookies. Standard.
