1. I’m traveling for work again, which usually leads to me spending WAY too much time in the local grocery stores.
I love finding new products that my usual stores don’t carry!
Like this Lily’s dark chocolate bar–> that’s sweetened with stevia! I haven’t been using stevia much lately, but I just had to give this chocolate a try.
I brought it to share at a Bachelorette “watching party” last night, and we were all pleasantly surprised with the flavor of this chocolate. It doesn’t taste like a sugar-free bar!
2. Also served at our party last night? Sushi.
Not the kind of sushi you’d expect, though.
I’ve never cared for fruity candy OR Rice Krispies treats (I hate marshmallows), so this wasn’t my kind of dessert… but it has inspired me to try making a dessert sushi of my own! Mine will probably involve chocolate.
I added a 1/4 cup to my most recent batch, but I think I’d even increase it to a 1/2 cup next time. Simply grind the coconut down with the macadamia nuts, and follow the rest of the recipe as directed! (You could also just stir in the unsweetened coconut, for added texture, if you prefer.)
I don’t know which version I like better… they’re both pretty addictive.
4. I also happen to be addicted to fresh dill at the moment.
I even went so far as to add it to my homemade guacamole. I don’t recommend trying that at home.
I guess dill really isn’t meant to go on everything.
5. I bought a new Camelbak water bottle last week. I was skeptical of their claim that this bite-valve increases your water intake throughout the day, but now that I’ve tried it, I’m a believer.
I still can’t tell you why I drink more water out of it, but it works! Great for staying hydrated during these hot summer days.
