Soy GOOD

Lately I’ve been beyond lazy when it comes to cooking, and have been living off of oatmeal, cereal, and bagels. I needed to make things a little more exciting, so I bought some soy bites and made a DELICIOUS stir fry with green peppers, mushrooms, garlic and ginger.

Of course I HAD to have some steamed broccoli

T’was such a good dinner.

peace and love

The New Drink in Town @Teabean_White @coffeeandteanyc

At the Coffee & Tea Festival, there was an array of hot and cold drink that were just brewing with excitement!  One of my favorite new drinks I discovered is Tea Bean!  It is revolutionary, totally delicious and Canadian!


Teabean infuses White Coffee beans with Chai spices for a caffeinated & delicious tasting tea…or coffee? It is owned by Olympic Figure Skater Craig Buntin from Montreal, QC ·

We are so happy that Craig decided to take a new spin on coffee and tea!  This stuff is fabulous and I am so sure you would want to try it!

See how it’s all mixed up? You can used a diffuser if you want or use the triangle tea bags to seep this aromatic drink!  Craig had to get up early for skate practice all the time so he was interested in finding caffeinated drinks that he can use to get him energized.  You can what? We love Teabean, it the gold medal drink of Tea and Coffee Fest!
