The Friday Five 11.21.14

1. Reading:

2. Watching: Give presence. Love this. Pay attention at 2:34.

3. Eating: Alter Eco makes some damn good chocolate. I’ve had a couple of their bars before, but recently tried these Salted Caramel Truffles. Holy moly they are goooood. The dark chocolate shell is filled with a rich, creamy caramel center with a sprinkle of sea salt. The combo is wildly delicious.Alter-Eco-Truffles-Dark-Chocolate-Salted-Caramel-817670010587

Cool facts: they’re made with coconut oil and the wrappers are compostable. I still need to try that Dark Quinoa bar!

4. Bookmarking: I’ve seriously amped up my greens intake. Each week I roast a big batch Brussels sprouts, kale, and broccoli. This week I swapped out the brussels for asparagus. This Brussels Sprouts, Kale, and Spinach Salad needs to work itself into next week.

5. GIFs!

  • The Alter Eco dark quinoa bar is really good! It’s the only type of that company’s products I’ve tried, but I loved it. It tastes and has the texture of a Crunch bar, but better. If you sent me a package of those salted caramels I would not be unhappy…;) And I’m on board with those fictional restaurants becoming real! I want to go to Good Burger and order a Good Burger.

  • Haha try being pale all year round! It’s my life, I never get any darker…ever.
