From a Box

I placed an iHerb.com order a few days ago and 48 hours later, it arrived.

Nothing too much.  Probiotics and two kinds of stevia, but all are staples for me.

If you want to save 30-40% off retail prices on your supplements, stevia, bulk spices, health and beauty items, nutritional yeast, vitamins, you name it, check out iHerb and use coupon code AVE630 to save $5 at checkout.

iHerb also sent a couple free samples like they frequently do.  Madre-C Cocoa Mix and a cute mini jar of raspberry pomegranate jelly.

My grandma used to “borrow” the mini jars of jelly right into her purse that restaurants left on the table.  She didn’t want them to “go to waste”.

MY OTHER RECIPES

iHerb’s magazine of the month features Sarma.

Does she look familiar?

I reviewed her books, hereTwo of my all-time fave cookbooks. They may not be “every day eats” type books, but they are inspiring.

After I unpacked my iHerb box, it was time to eat.

A salad

with Peanut Sauce Baked Tofu

Skylar and I split the rest of the leftover Vanilla Avocado Banana Smoothie in a Bowl that was hanging out in the freezer.

Tasted just fine a couple days later and it hadn’t turned brown.  Avocados tend to do that so quickly but not in this.  I think the banana + freezing it helped.

“i liked you on facebook!”

 

Carrie, email me your shipping address and Love Grown will ship your granola to you.

Glad you enjoyed my last post on the Great Grub I’ve seen this past week around the ‘sphere.  I like featuring what I think looks good and in bloggieland, there’s never a shortage of droolworthy food!

Questions:

1. What was the last box you unpacked and what was in it?

The last box I unpacked was my iHerb order

Before that it was coconut oil.

Prior to that it was a cookbook.

Before that, yoga pants and yoga DVDs.

Yes, FedEx and UPS definitely know where I live.

2. Any recent online orders you’ve made?

I love ordering things online that I know are just so much cheaper to purchase online rather than in stores, i.e. dry/bulk food items, supplements, and even shoes if I am just replacing running shoes.  I know my size/style in Nike’s and can order online.

However, some things like bras and jeans, I just can’t order online because it’s just too impossible for me with sizing and not knowing how things are going to fit.

I had to laugh yesterday because one of my coworkers has hair extensions and she said there’s no way she could ever order her hair online even though it would save her so much money if she did.  She wants to touch and feel the hair in person, first.  Totally understandable, I told her.

3. Mother’s Day Plans?

Still nothing for me, as I explained.  And I am fine with it!  It just gives me more time to get my chores accomplished and enjoy the weather!

Who needs a dozen roses when you see one of these roses on your running path?

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms!

  5. I just love your photoes, and they do really have an professional look now – congrats!!! Love the tempting recipes too – and I use iherb A LOT! Here in Norway we can’t get half of what you are used to in the US :)

    I wondered, I’ve never been able to like avocado, and I KNOW how healthy it is, and I just wish I could get some easy recipes with “disguised” avocados in. Do you have some ideas? I bet you do…. :) Thanks in avance – and have a lovely day “over there” :)

  6. Pretty much the only thing I order online is Lululemon. I celebrated Mother’s Day yesterday b/c Noah has soccer all day today. I was treated to a mani/pedi and the house was magically clean when I arrived home! :) Have a great Mother’s Day, whatever you end up getting into!! ;)

  7. The last box that I opened was some coconut butter and other products from a company that sent me samples. I am excited to use them all.

    We had dinner with my in-laws for mothers’ day today, and got some gifts/cards for the mothers in our lives too.

  8. The last box I unpacked was from Upaya Naturals. It has a huge bulk order of Chlorella tablets for us. Usually last us about 6 months.

  10. Great review! You actually covered some valuable things in your post. I came across it by using Yahoo and I’ve got to admit that I already subscribed to the RSS feed, it’s very great :)
