Five Things Friday
Today is the day that I would have posted what goodies I got from my food pen pal, but unfortunately I haven’t received her package in time. I know it is on the way, so look for a post about it next week. Thankfully the linkup is open for a few more days!
In lieu of writing about a box full of food goodies, I will only write about some food goodies. Here are five things that I am loving right now:
My friend Tayler got me drinking this fermented tea and now I end up having one everyday. Kombucha is touted as being able to detoxify the body, aid in digestion and gut health, improve your immune system, etc. I typically only drink water all the time, but made the exception for this delightfully fizzy drink. Also I bought a case because I go hard.
2. Kabocha Squash & Brussel Sprouts
I know that this squash has a similar name to the aforementioned kombucha, but they are definitely different. I suppose the only similarity is the frequency of which I ingest them both. I have been craving squash and brussel sprouts like crazy, so naturally I buy a huge amount and roast them so that I can have good snacks at work (or breakfast, or lunch, I don’t have a problem!).
For how to roast brussel sprouts, see this post.

3. This Hat
I broke this out this winter and it’s been the first time in some years that I have actually worn it. It is great for keeping heat in and for looking like an authentic Russian. Maybe.
4. L’Occitane Lotion
I had been searching for a subtle new scent for awhile. I didn’t want to smell like Bath and Body Works anymore, but was unable to find something that was light enough. I walked into L’Occitane a couple weeks ago and realized I had never been in that store in my life! I found this lotion and loved it!
5. Blogging Opportunities
I got involved with blogging because I wanted to share my story and help others. There were also selfish motivations because I wanted a therapeutic way to work out feelings, thoughts, etc since I tend to be a pretty introverted person. Starting this blog has introduced me to some wonderful people and has granted me some great opportunities. Just this week, I was accepted as a Sweat Pink Ambassador and have signed up to attend FitBloggin, an annual fitness and blogging (go figure) convention. I am so excited! I am looking forward to everything that is to come on this adventure and want to thank everyone who is a part of it with me!
Question of the day: What are some of your favorite things?
