Teeccino, Chocolate flavor. It’s like drinking a doughnut. A no-sugar added, herbal, liquid doughnut. I mean this in the best possible way. It also reminds me of General Foods International Coffee commercials…that’s the feeling I get drinking it–without actually imbibing crappy, Euro-fetishizing, chemically laden, processed junk. It’s marketed as a coffee substitute. I actually really just like it for what it is (especially since I drink coffee already).
Mung beans. About 15 minutes after I eat them, I get the most amazing feeling of well-being. I boil them, then separate them into 1/2 cup portions and freeze them. For lunch, I put one in a container with broccoli and a tablespoon of nut butter, then heat it, mix it up and salt it…and it’s SO GOOD. I buy them in bulk at Whole Foods; I found that they were really pricey, prepacked at Vitamin Cottage.
Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table cookbook. It’s such a great read! Greenspan is so generous when it comes to sharing a vignette about each recipe. I am so excited to make her roasted apples, and try her baked chicken with Armagnac…and so much more.
