Hey beautiful people!!
I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend! Getting back into the swing of things has been a little tough, but at least it’s only a 4-day week 🙂 I’m back today rounding up some of my favorite goods from the month of May. It’s been a delicious month!
KeVita Kombucha in Pineapple Peach: Okay I’ll be honest, the first time I tried Kombucha, I thought it was the most disgusting thing ever (I’m not a huge vinegar fan). I still always go for the fruitier flavors, and this one is hands down my favorite of any brand. It’s so refreshing and perfect for summer. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t crave it every single day!
Nekter Juice Bar’s Tropical Cooler Smoothie (or green smoothies in general!): As a babe on a budget, I generally try to avoid buying smoothies since they cost at least triple of what they do when you just make ’em at home, but sometimes I straight up run out of groceries and still want something healthy and delicious. I recently fell in love with Nekter (their acai bowls are to die for!) and tried their green smoothie with greens, pineapple, banana and coconut butter. It’s easy enough to recreate at home too, I just need to get my hands on some coconut butter! Anyone know a good variety?!
3-Ingredient Cinnamon Raisin Bites: If you guys saw these on my blog but haven’t made them yet, I can assure you that they are still absolutely delicious 5 days after you make ’em. Not to mention that I for sure saved money last week since I didn’t buy a bunch of Larabars or Kind Bars and had these instead! They’re perfect if you need some energy, or even just as a sweet treat if you’re like me and want dessert literally after every meal…
Hugh jass breakfast sandwiches: Sooooo truth be told, I splurged at the grocery store and bought us brioche buns for Memorial Day weekend since I knew we’d be making hamburgers. We had some of the buns leftover and decided to make breakfast sandwiches with fresh eggs from the farmer’s market, avocado, jack cheese, and sriracha mayo (1/2 sriracha, 1/2 mayo). Admittedly, there is very little that is healthy about this meal, but I couldn’t care less. And we didn’t even have to leave the house to get an insanely delicious brunch on Sunday!
Farmer’s Market Burrata: We also picked up this hunk of gloriousness at the farmer’s market Sunday morning, as well as the heirloom tomatoes and basil underneath, and it was freaking. EPIC. At first we though $5 for it was kind of pricey (but still worth it), but when we opened the bag it was actually a ton. And the thing I love, love, LOVE about burrata is how decadent it is. You don’t even need too much to enjoy it, but that flavor mixed with the herbs and tomatoes? UGH. The BEST.
Rebbl Maca Mocha: These drinks have been popping up allllll over the food blog and wellness world, so of course when I saw them on sale at Sprouts, I had to grab a couple! I couldn’t believe how delicious this was – so creamy and decadent, like an adult version of chocolate milk almost? I love that it’s caffeine free, but full of energizing nutrients and adaptogens. It’s also coconut milk based and has no added sugar. So many amazing reasons to try it! I definitely want to get my hands on their other flavors asap.
Rx Bar in Coconut Chocolate: I’ve mentioned my love for Rx Bars in the past, but this flavor was new to me! I really loved it – not too much coconut and not too sweet either. Sometimes protein bars can be suuuuper sweet, especially when they have chocolate in them. This one was just right, and at 210 calories, it was perfect for a clean afternoon pre-workout snack!
Alright friends, that’s all for today. What have you been loving lately? Have you tried any new products that are worth buying again?
