Happy Friday! I’m getting my relaxation on this weekend – I leave for Korea in a few days. It’ll be a short trip but I’m looking forward to it all the same.
Let’s get to our Friday Faves!
Bulletproof coffee (BPC) – I’ve been following a low-carb, high-fat diet for a few weeks in an attempt to mitigate some auto-immune issues I’ve been having, and as part of the diet, I’ve been drinking BPC for breakfast. If you’re not familiar with this fad, it’s a combination of coffee, butter, and coconut oil blended together. I didn’t like the original BPC, but a few things made it a little more palatable for me – triple filtered coconut oil (has almost no coconut flavor), flavored coffee (I use pumpkin spice :), and good butter. I also add collagen powder for additional staying power and this keeps me full till lunch! Oh, and blending is key – I bought a cheap milk frother and it does the trick.
Jaybirds – I was looking to switch to wireless sport headphones, and I bought the Jaybird X3s on sale a few months ago, but it wasn’t till recently that I really liked them after fiddling with the fit. The Bluetooth connectivity is excellent, and they don’t slip out of my ears no matter how much I sweat (and I sweat a lot). I appreciate that they included several sizes of earbuds and fins in the box!
Trader Joe’s kettle corn – This was an impulse buy on my last shopping trip, and it’s the one high carb indulgence I can’t seem to quit :) If you’re looking for a salty sweet crunchy snack, I think you’ll enjoy TJ’s kettle corn.
Tiny hedgehog goes camping – so cute, I die.
