I’m back on coffee these days. It all started with almond milk dirty chais when school started. Then, Peet’s came out with a new chai recipe. Now, since their almond milk dirty chais have too much sugar in them for me, I’ve moved on to almond milk lattes. Yum. But, instead of having a 12 oz. one shot latte, I’ve also moved on to the 16 oz. two shot beverage. I’m hoping to get this under control soon. And, I most definitely will have to wean myself from all café almond milk next month when I begin my 4th Whole30.
Today, I’m sipping, reading, and writing at the Peet’s in the suburbs that I enjoy—in a window seat. I was up early this morning, so I decided to complete my yoga set and head out of the house. I’ll walk the dogs later. My partner is out of town, so I’ve been a single dog mommy for the past few days. My goodness are they just like babies.
I’m hoping to finish this Murakami book that I purchased and started back in January before the year ends. It’s not that it isn’t interesting, I simply don’t make enough time to read. I am overstimulated by my phone, cooking, and physical activities. I want to make time for all the things I love—including people.
Since I’m back on my clean eating wagon, I brought my homemade, grain-free pumpkin bread with me to Peet’s. Sure, it doesn’t taste like the grain- and sugar-based pumpkin bread and muffin in Peet’s display, but it’s just as satisfying—without the GMOs, additives, preservatives, and other ingredients that I can’t pronounce. Eating clean is just that: eating real food without the unnecessary and added fillers. I feel good and am looking forward to seeing my abs and pecs again.
