I’m so glad many of you liked the look of my Healthy Tuna Noodle Casserole recipe! We’ve been enjoying the leftovers – I had the last of it the other day for lunch while at the UberOffices. I tossed it in a tupperware on top of some greens, and added some canned chickpeas to the mix, to, for a little more volume. Delish!
I also had an unpictured orange to end my meal on a sweet/juicy note. 🙂 Speaking of juice, btw – how cool is this vending machine that got installed recently at the UberOffices?!
It’s like my dream! I want this in our house…
So far I’ve tried the green juice and the beet juice – both delish. Love that it’s a local company, too – I hadn’t heard of Tasty6 before!
On the breakfast front this week, I’ve been making a variation of my Flour Free Breakfast Pancake! Kylie recently wrote about making it with coconut flour in place of the ground flaxseed, so I thought it would be fun to mix it up and do the same. I had an early morning client meeting today at 7:45, so I had a snack (toast + PB) before heading out the door. When I got back home afterwards, I set to making myself the pancake!
The coconut flour is delish in it – it makes it taste a little more like a “normal” pancake, I think, than the flaxseed, although you can definitely taste the coconut. I liked it, though – I think I’ll mix it up regularly! Variety is the spice of life, right? 🙂
With my pancake, I of course enjoyed a latte!
As you guys know, we got a Nespresso machine for our wedding that I’m completely obsessed with, and use pretty much every day to make lattes. As of late, I’ve been trying out some new espresso, though – the team at Gourmesso recently sent me some of their espresso capsules to try out for a sponsored review. I’ve been really enjoying them!
Gourmesso is a New York City-based coffee company that makes coffee capsules that are compatible with Nespresso machines. The big benefit? They sell at a price that is 30% less than the original Nespresso capsules. The capsules are sold online and ship to all 50 states. They look very similar to the Nespresso capsules, which makes sense since they have to fit the same machine. 🙂
Gourmesso currently offers 20 different espresso varieties made with coffee beans from around the world, from South and Central America, to Africa, India and Asia. These blends include 10 different espresso blends, three lungo (long-pour) blends, six flavored blends, and one decaf option. They also offer the only certified Fairtrade coffee capsules available. Right now only a few of their offerings are Fairtrade, but they are working to switch all of their capsules by this spring!
If you’re a Nespresso lover looking to save a little cash, give Gourmesso a shot!
On the workout front this week, I don’t have anything to report – I’ve been feeling pretty wiped so I took Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday as rest days. As for today, I just treated myself to a restorative/low key lunchtime yoga class. Felt good to stretch, as always!
I’m off on a trip tomorrow morning – back to work and then I need to pack! Have a great day, everyone!
