I don’t have a lot of profundity to share today so I’ll share some of my “favorite things” right now….
I am mildly addicted to Kombucha. G.T.’s is mildly bank-breaking but it is so delicious and it makes my tum very happy. If I’m lucky, I can head over to Puree in Bethesda and get a yummy fresh brew from the tap by Capital Kombucha. Last week, I had basil lemongrass with an added shot of ginger. OMG.
I’ve talked about it before but finding the She Reads Truth online community has been a tremendous blessing for me this summer. I have loved connecting to a whole slew of ladies who dig into the Word. We are currently studying the book of Proverbs. I love it because it is a focused study that can take me all over the bible. For example, did you know that there are 180 references to “fear of the Lord” in the bible? Crazy right?!
I love my Brooks Launch. They are squishy, light, and kick ass fast red. I have worn them for several “long” runs and while I know in my heart they are not “enough shoe” for my weight, I know they make me happy. So there.
I am also mildly obsessed with the Balanced Bites Podcast featuring Diane Sanfilippo and Liz Wolfe. Their podcasts about paleo living, health, and nutrition are engaging, informative, and passionate. I have Diane’s new book, Practical Paleo, on my wish list from amazon. (ahem, hint, ahem)
It might sound gross when you read about it, but I’m telling you Bulletproof Coffee is insane. I make it with 2 mugs of keurig brewed coffee (I’m going to try it next with Jet Fuel) Kerrygold butter in your coffee? Gross you say, ah, but no. Delicious when super hot and frothy. I also add 1 tbs of Coconut oil instead of the oil he recommends because that is what I have in the house. Crazy Crazy Good.
I will end my list with a shout out to Nom Nom Paleo‘s new iPad app. Talk about an awesome iPad cookbook with DELICIOUS recipes. You must try the spicy cauliflower, even if you think you hate cauliflower, which I did.
Oh wait, one more thing….if this (see pic below) didn’t inspire you to grab those friends and get running, I don’t know what will. Kara Goucher and Shalane Flanagan are amazing examples of the power of teamwork and friendship.
