Hello Sunday, my old friend!
Another week complete, another list of discoveries to share with you. Here are a few of my favourite things this week. Please read that last line to the Sound of Music tune for maximum impact. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, there’s your homework.
- Kodiak Cakes: Kodiak Cakes pioneered a great-tasting line of protein-packed Flapjack & Waffle Mixes known as Power Cakes that are made with 100% whole grains, non-GMO ingredients, and are packed with 14g protein per serving to help fuel your day. Throw in Lily’s dark chocolate chips or frozen berries for a little healthy sweetness.
- Waffle Maker: If you’re gonna serve these suckers up for Sunday brunch, you need the right kitchen tools. Here’s my favourite waffle maker purchased and received in 2 days, thanks to Amazon Prime: Hamilton Beach 26030C Belgian Style Flip Waffle Maker.
- Forest Productivity App: The best cure for phone addiction. Set a time that you want to focus for and you’ll plant a seed that will gradually grow into a tree. If you leave the app to check Instagram or play a game, your tree will wither away. Here’s the cool part, not only will you get a sense of achievement if you make your goal, but you’ll also get to plant real trees around the world with the credits you’ve earned.
- iPhone X: It happened, I got it. I’m a major Apple fan and this phone didn’t disappoint. The facial recognition makes my life so much more efficient, avoiding the oh-so-timely task of entering my password every time I want to open my phone. Now, I simply look at my device, swipe up, and I’m in. So cool, right now. The portrait mode feature on the camera is pretty great too – I’m talking studio lighting on your selfies.
- Dark Chocolate: I’m in the process of quitting sugar (more about that later!). While I was busy doing my research, I came across a fact that I really should’ve known by now. Just in case you guys don’t know either, I’m dropping some knowledge. For a plain chocolate bar, whatever percentage isn’t cocoa/cacao is generally sugar. So for example, a bar of 70 per cent cacao is still 30 per cent sugar (about 2.5 teaspoons). So moral of the story: go dark chocolate, or go home.
