Brown Paper Packages Tied Up with String...

These are a few of my new favorite things. Sorry.

Many of these are what I consider healthy convenience foods, which is pretty much an oxymoron these days so they are good finds.

My Jack LaLanne Power Juicer~ I seriously could not live without this dream machine.

Tea, tea and more tea~ Herbal teas, chai teas, Morning Thunder, Yerba Mate, you name it and I'm drinking it. Sweetened with honey and it's a perfect bed time soother, sweetened with stevia and it's a perfect appetite suppressant. The ritual is so centering and with so much information on the health benefits of tea, it's a no brainer.

Food for Life Ezekiel Bread~ The sesame and raisin flavors are the best. Cutting back on bread is tough for me but good bread is one of my triggers and must be enjoyed cautiously. But who can live without soft egg on toast on weekend mornings or go without ham and cheese sandwiches on weekday afternoons? I sure can't and this nourishing and satisfying bread does it for me.

Organic baby carrot snack packs~ like these and other brands. I usually put up snack bags of various snack veggies for myself, but these are so great to keep in the fridge when time is short or I get lazy.

Laughing Cow Light cheeses~ mmm, cheese.

Trader Joe's Just a Handful raw almonds~ a pack of these with baby carrots and a wedge of cheese is a more than satisfying snack.

Larabars~ Not for every day but when I want something sweet but don't want to feel like crap afterward, one of these beauties does the trick. Just too good. The pistachio of my favorite.

Kashi five cheese and tomato pizza~ Sometimes you just gotta have pizza! Until I can master making my own whole grain crust, half a Kashi pizza with a veggie salad makes a nice supper for when Rob is away and I just don't feel like cooking.
