February Favorites | Making Thyme for Health

I don’t know about you guys but I am so ready for March! There are little flowers popping up on the trees here and I can’t wait to see everything vibrant and green. Plus the longer days make it much easier to function like a normal human being again.

We have family coming to visit next week so I’m hoping the weather cooperates. Then the rest of the month will be spent working diligently so that we can relax and enjoy our anniversary trip in April.

I hope March holds something fun for all of you too! In the meantime, enjoy a round-up of my favorite recent finds!

******************

Favorite Breakfast: Chia Seed Pudding. I’ve had lots of chia pudding in my day but have never thought to add fresh orange juice/zest. I love that it adds a touch of brightness and makes it taste like an orange creamsicle!

 

Favorite Skincare: Coconut Milk Youth Firm Night Cream. You guys might recognize this brand from me sharing it in my prior favorites. I’m obsessed. This moisturizer is my latest favorite. It’s super moisturizing without feeling greasy.

 

Favorite Snack: Mint Chocolate Power Bars. They say that mint helps improve focus and I can’t think of a more delicious way to concentrate then these power bars. They’re packed full of healthy goodness!

 

Favorite Cozy Meal: Healing Lemongrass Chickpea Thai Green Curry. I haven’t stopped craving curries yet and this green version is seriously calling my name. Looks so comforting.

 

Favorite Salad: Fennel & Clementine Chopped Salad. Citrus, fennel, radishes and avocado are pretty much the best winter combo ever. All of that added to a pile of crunchy cabbage? Stick a fork in me. I’m done.

 

Favorite Cheese: Miyoko’s Kitchen Cultured Vegan Cheese. THIS CHEESE! Miyoko’s is killing the dairy-free scene right now. All of products are made with cashews and coconut oil then fermented with cultures, just like the real deal. The end result is so good I wish I could hug her.

 

Favorite Mexican Food: Chipotle Cauliflower Rice & Black Bean Enchiladas. Y’all know how much I love Chipotle seasoning. Imagining it infused in cauliflower rice and stuffed in an enchilada is making me crazy. These look amazing!

 

Favorite Treat: Roasted Blueberry & Almond Butter Dark Chocolate Cups. Okay, Anne had me at roasted blueberries. NEED.

 

Favorite Tea: Rishi Turmeric Ginger Tea. I tried this tea last month at Cinnaholic here in Athens and instantly fell in love. It’s soothing and perfect to wind down with in the evening.

 

Favorite Natural Home Find: Kapok Pillows. After we moved we ending up having to buy a new couch and I had the hardest time finding non-toxic throw pillows that weren’t made from feathers. That was until I discovered kapok. It’s plant-based and naturally resistant to pests so it doesn’t have to be treated with chemicals. Sold!

 

Favorite Tunes: Possessed by Paul James. Brandon and I went to see a bluegrass band here in town and, as someone who usually shuns all things country, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Soon thereafter I stumbled across this guy who happens to be pretty awesome.

 

 

Favorite Book: A Dog’s Journey. Oh hi, it’s just me. Reading dog books for the rest of forever. I need a dog, like yesterday. But these books! They are so good and fun to read, albeit the occasional cry that comes along with it. The sequel is just as good as the first one too!

 

Favorite Dessert: Best Vegan Brownies. The fudge factor of these brownies is off the hook. They’re made with coconut flour which I always comments asking to use as a sub. I haven’t figured it out with my recipes but this one clearly looks like a winner!
