I wanted to take the time to go over a few of my favourite things with you all today! I fall in love with something and then I am hooked for a long time.
I recently found this super cute mug at an outing to Ikea! I love, love, LOVE this mug! Doesn’t it look like a Milk Shake glass? “My milk shake brings all the boys to the yard…..” I was singing that as I wrote it Anyways, this very trendy, pink mug is sans handle, which I thought might be a bit weird for me to get used to, but honestly it is way easier than a regular mug with a handle!
So next on my “love” list right now is Kraut – I can’t get enough of this stuff! Now, I am not sure if many of you out there even enjoy sauerkraut, but I was raised on this stuff being part German. My nana would lay the delicious German spread out for us and we would all be in heaven
We have been topping our salads with this at lunch time and it adds such a wonderful kick to a bunch of greens
Kraut is not just a wonderful salad topper, it has many health benefits as well.
Sauerkraut’s benefits are two-fold. First, it’s made of cabbage, which is known to fight cancer, treat peptic ulcers and provides vitamin C, fiber, manganese, vitamin B6 and folate. However, because sauerkraut is fermented, it has added benefits over regular cabbage.
Fermenting produces good bacteria known as probiotics, which produce beneficial enzymes, aid digestion and promote healthy flora in the digestive tract. Fermentation also produces isothiocyanates, compounds that have been shown to prevent cancer growth in test tubes and animals.
I finally made these Tropical Muffins found on OhSheGlows.com!
Muffins are a wonderful baked good to keep frozen in the freezer for a quick grab snack on the way out of the house. These muffins are super healthy and full of wonderful, beneficial ingredients. I used quinoa flour in replacement of the spelt flour the recipe originally called for, I think they turned out pretty darn good You can find the recipe here.
Lately I have also been stoking my freezer with these little guys:
These “turtles” have been on my Love list for quite some time and I seem to have 1 as I graze throughout the day……I don’t even think Ryan knows they are in the freezer, so they seem to be all mine
There you have it! These are my new obsessions for the last few weeks.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I know Hudson is starting his off very relaxed. He seems to move from one sun spot to another all day
Do you like Kraut? What do you eat it with??
