Jus by Julie – my first juice cleanse..

day 1. juices were delicious.. my favorite was the island coconut and chia berry.. lots of green things that weren’t too bad either, but definitely healthy. Overall I am craving meat and bread and basically anything I need to use my teeth on. I get 6 drinks per day which is enough to satisfy but I am definitely hungry.. well no one said doing a cleanse was supposed to be easy.

Day 2. juices still taste good but my mouth waters at the mention, smell or sight of any food. I may have to go to bed early so I don’t cheat.I made my son his chicken nuggets for dinner and took one long delicious and tortuous whiff. I didn’t falter. stayed strong.


Day 3 -6 I’ll summarize, cuz that’s what I do on this blog.. keep it short and sweet. I craved carbs and fats for the last 3 days but I was able to get through it all by going to bed early and not watching any tv. I woke up on day 7 and was able to see so much clearer that it was a little shocking. I felt good. clean. lighter on my feet. Definitely a good annual to do for me going forward. will do it again with Jus by Julie or maybe will give Blueprint a try.. kyp

upgraded cottage cheese

I tried Good Culture – Organic Cottage cheese on my last Whole Foods visit, and I actually ended up going back just for more of this. It’s so delicious, like a slightly yogurty cottage cheese, I’m thinking. why has no one done this before?? and 17g of protein and only 10g carbs. what! Try it. I’m hooked.

Todays Obsession: Uber Eats

It was delish

Uber Eats is the best thing to happen to my lunch break. Ever. I’ve used Uber a total of 3 times. The first was to summon the Game of Thrones throne, second was for a ride downtown, and third was for some ridiculously deliciously indian food from Soho Tiffin Junction. Im now an uber convert.

The whole thing works like this: The uber app has a ubereats menu tab (in select locations like NYC), each day they have a menu of a few items from famous food places around the city. You click and order and in a few minutes you are meeting said food outside from a delivery person. My food arrived in 8 minutes. It was hot. I didnt have to go to soho. In fact I didnt even have to take 5 steps out of our office doors. Huge.

Ample Hills Creamery – Salted Crack Caramel

image

If Oprah can eat an entire pint in one sitting than so shall I. Picked up a few pints at the Gotham West market in NYC. I walked 1.2 miles in the scorching heat. Sweating in my suit from the office after work.. And it was totally worth it. The Salted Crack Caramel tastes like burnt salted toffee, and its got saltine chocolate toffee crackers in it (if youve made them than you know why they are called crack) and it is so good. Batches are handmade and they ship worldwide. Get some at http://www.amplehills.com

Flipster app + library card = free magazines on your phone

image

Just catching up on the domestic issues on the ride home. #NBD

I feel like the library is a little secret that the masses haven’t really stumbled upon yet. So its to be expected that the concept of renting magazines from the library online using your phone would be completely foreign.. So (since im such a good person) im sharing this secret with all of you. Flipster is an app you download and works with participating libraries and brings you a slew of magazines to enjoy online or on your cell phone (android or iphone). You pay for nothing. You get viewing access for a week. Titles are legit. Why does no one know about this??

I love Inbox by Gmail!

image

We all have too much email. Work email. Personal email. Its overwhelming. Until recently I would attempt to delete mail en masse on a bi-quarterly basis- but would give up about 400 emails in. Yesterday i got both of my gmail inboxes down to 0, with the inbox app. Its brilliant. It allows you to mark emails done, snooze, or even pin important emails you need to keep in view. The best is that you can categorize and mark entire groups as done. Every email is archived rather than deleted so it doesnt feel so permanent, but it takes the clutter out of your box and even gives you a special little picture once youve cleared it all out. This app’s a big deal.

ACT II – Sweet Cinnamon Popcorn

image

Ive always wondered when popcorn makers would figure out that people need more flavors. Jolly time wisely created Mallow Magic which was a ridiculously good, albeit messy marshmallowy microwave popcorn which you can only find online.

We need more variety. We dont need 10 different butters. We need Sriracha. Vanilla. Maple bacon.
ACT II took a step in the right direction with their sweet cinnamon. Its slightly buttery but much sweeter than kettle corn, the cinnamon is sort of candyish (think candied apple cinnamon).. but very good.
