Even though there was no U.S. Mail service on Friday because of Veteran’s Day, UPS was still working and my iHerb arrived containing some essentials.

5 pounds of stevia in bulk

If you need to order protein powder, probiotics, stevia, bulk herbs and spices, nutritional yeast, body wash, supplements, vitamins and so many other health and beauty products and food items, I always recommend iHerb.  They’re usually at least 30% cheaper than retail and sometimes about 50% off retail.  Theres free shipping on all orders over $40.

So far I’ve had a nice weekend and was productive in the kitchen.

Kitchen with sink stove and dishwasher

Just in time for Thanksgiving, I made something with cranberries…

…And mango

And I had to stop myself from eating most of it because I’ve been waiting for good natural lighting and sunlight in order to get some decent photos.

But we’ve had overcast skies or rain for two days which has put a monkey wrench into food photography.

Good thing I have other things to choose from for nibbling.

I ordered up some Peanut Sauce Baked Tofu

1. What have you ordered up lately? 

Any good food?  Online purchases?

I’d like to order up some time with friends, time with a few magazines, and I’d gladly order up a laundry and dishes-doing fairy.

2. Anything fun and exciting going on for you this weekend?

Skylar has been wanting to practice bike riding on her new bike but it’s been raining and miserable.   We’ve been ordering up some Barney DVD’s and cranberries.  That’s about as exciting as we’ve gotten.

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. I ordered the hubby some Christmas gifts recently :-) I am trying to beat him home everyday so he doesn’t get the mail before me!

  2. Cranberry and mango sound wonderful together. Lots of salads and vegan Mac and cheese here, perfect after a busy weekend. I just stocked up on stevia from Amazon too. Yuck, sorry about your weather!

  3. Cranberry and Mango??? What a fantastic flavor combo. I like the flavor not texture of mango so this would work well in my book – perhaps with that tofu. I ordered more shoes from DSW and those arrived the other day. Love that place ;-)

  4. Hmmm never been to iherb, but I’ll check it out. I wonder if they ship to Canada?

    Ok, this stevia looks delish and I must try!!

    Hahahah food pics in rainy Vancouver all winter would not be good for you ;)


    1. My European readers and Australian readers have said they order from them so yes, I’m sure they ship to Canada too. Soooo much cheaper than retail for all your supps, vitamins, powders, nooch, etc!

  5. Too funny, my purchases from vitacost.com were basically the same this week! Love ordering things online!

  6. I’m still going on the NuNaturals and Nooch I ordered from iHerb a few months back. I have to be abstemious because it feels a bit naughty to order such things internationally, but I can’t get them here!

    1. you gotta do what you gotta do and if nooch is the naughtiest you get, you’re a very good girl :)

  7. Got my lipstick from Mac today so I’m happy and also had a MAJOR score on a great “winter” coat. Love a good sale!

  8. I order from iHerb at least 2 times per month. I, too, order NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia, probiotics, and also other vitamins when I run out! LOVE them. They save me a ton of money!

  9. I just ordered a couple of pairs of Gap leggings online… so exciting, I know. I wish I could order up a margarita right about now!

    1. I wish I could order up one WITH you! It’s been…like 18+ mos since Ive seen you. Miss you!!!
