1. My egg poaching pan.
After my grandmother passed away last summer, we divvied up all of her kitchenwares between the grandkids. All of the stuff I claimed went into a box that was stored until we moved into the house. We’ve started unpacking and discovered this very well-loved egg poaching pan! I’ve been using it all the time. Poached eggs are so amazing. A great way to get protein in the morning and no added fats from cooking. I love soft-poaching two eggs and serving them over a slice of Ezekiel toast. Yum!
2. Real CocoAloe.
I’m a big fan of coconut water, and I think this brand is my favorite. It’s weird. Like, really weird. I definitely wouldn’t recommend it for coconut water first timers. It has chunks of aloe pulp and the flavor tastes a little bit like coconut-flavored white chocolate mixed with tortilla chips. Weird, right? But way addictive. I can’t stop thinking about it. I found it at Meijer in their “New Age Beverages” section. I’m not even kidding. That’s what the aisle sign says.
3. Olympic Premium paint.
This past weekend, we painted our bedroom using this zero VOC, low odor paint from Olympic. It was amazing! No smell at all. I actually lifted the can under my nose and couldn’t smell a thing. It’s so nice to be able to paint a room, load back the furniture and not have to smell the paint for weeks. It’s a bit more expensive than “regular” paint but to me, it’s totally worth it to not kill brain cells.
4. The Olympics.
Duh. If you couldn’t tell from yesterday’s post, I’m totally obsessed with the Olympics. I love, love, love sports! USA! USA! USA!
5. Assisted Pull-ups.
I’m nowhere near being able to do a regular pull-up, but I love the assisted pull up machine at my gym! I keep going lower and lower on the counter-weight and my arms and back are feeling it. It’s such a great way to workout all the major muscles of the upper body. A couple of sets of pull-ups combined with a couple of sets of push-ups and my arms, back and chest are toast.
