Coco Roons!

Both Cafe and I love a good sweet treat. If it's healthy, even better! One of my new favorite things are Coco Roons. They are delicious treat that are raw and only have a few ingredients is another plus. I LOVE that they aren't sweetened with agave nectar and instead with organic maple syrup, They are also dairy free and gluten free. My favorites are the brownies and cacao nibs. They are the perfect sweet treat when  you need a dessert.

 

Tea, Please

My obsession with tea has only been intensified since finding David’s
Tea. Café first found this treasure on a trip to Montreal. Once I
moved to the Bay Area there happened to be a few in SF and a location
even in my small town of Burlingame.

Let me start off by saying that I love everything about this
establishment. This is a Canadian company which is awesome.  The
bright and clean store, the SUPER helpful employees and the amazing
selection of tea. This is not a grab your drink quickly establishment.
The David’s Tea experience includes talking to an employee about your
likes and dislikes. Are you looking for caffeine, something sweet or
fruity. With over a 100 different types of tea they have something for
everyone, seriously!

Some of my favorite tea are, Glitter and Gold (black tea), Blueberry
Jam (organic black tea), Forever Nuts (herbal tea), Oolong Milk Tea
(oolong tea) and Gold Rush (white tea). They also roll out seasonal
teas as well. Pumpkin Patch is one of my all time favorites, from the
fall.

Once you select the type of tea you can choose to have it as a tea
latte (my favorite) a regular tea, iced tea or a tea pop. A Tea pop is
where they use bubbly water to make it extra refreshing.

Tea is a wonderful addition to any day or evening. Some people love
having tea instead of dessert. I love sipping it with a health treat
in my hand. There are many healthy reasons to sip tea. It has been
noted that it can reduce risk of heart attacks, cancer, is filled with
antioxidants and can even keep your weight even. If one isn’t near you
they ship anywhere in the US and Canada.  http://www.davidstea.com

This past Saturday I tried a new tea latte called Strawberry Fields.
It is a black tea that has a strawberry fruity taste.  I took some
pictures below of my latest visit.

Malibu Farms

It is a stunning day in LA so Carlos, Sofia and I jumped in the car and drove up to Malibu for breakfast. One of the great things about having a toddler is that you can drive around the city when its way to early for regular people to be up exploring on a Sunday morning. Our favorite spot to eat in Malibu Farms. (We love it so much that Mica got a Malibu Farms sweatshirt for Christmas this year.) Its organic, local and delicious.  So even when I order the Swedish pancakes for breakfast I feel good knowing that everything is organic and food for my body. I mean whipped cream can be considered a healthy fat, right?! 

Saturday Morning and Bare Bowl

This morning I headed down to Palo Alto. I've been wanting to try this place down there call Bare Bowls . This place is seriously cute. Strangely I have never had an acai bowl before. I LOVE a good superfood and I'm not sure how I have managed to miss this but I am true devotee now. 

Just in case you don't know what acai is a berry rich in antioxidants and fiber. It has so many amazing properties that you should look it up. It's has some amazing properties. I ordered the Trailblazer which includes: acai, Bare almond butter, strawberry, banana, date, cashew milk, granola and roasted almonds and honey on top. Simply divine! 

They also have fun treats to go in mason jars and Kombucha!
