How is it already time for my April 2016 Favorites?!? Time is going by so quickly, it’s been all one stressful set of days bleeding into each other with so little variation it’s hard to tell what day it is. Luckily, there have been a few bright points that I’ll talk about today.
This has been a lifesaver this month so it’s at the top of my April 2016 favorites list. I had to take a trip to the ER unexpectedly and I was coughed on, barfed at, and sneezed on! As soon as I was out, I drove to the store and picked this up. Luckily, I only got the stomach bug going around and not the bacterial pneumonia most of the people were in the ER for. This stuff tastes great too and it gave me a little extra energy throughout my illness and before/after. I’ll be buying another box when I’m done with this one. I’m pretty sure I’ll keep taking it until summer is here. I’ve been so stressed I know need all the extra support I can get.
Trader Joe’s Organic Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe Sticks
Most commercial dog treats have wheat and corn as their top ingredients. Not these! The have oatmeal, chicken, brown rice, and molasses! My dog is now quite the addict. They smell like teriyaki jerky. They break apart easily to use as training treats or feed them whole. I’ve been using them both ways. Even though my pup is just about 7 now he loves learning and eating so these help with both. The are $3 and last about a week.
Trader Joe’s Moroccan Style Mint Tea
There is another brand of tea I love that has a similar option but it’s more expensive, has more sugar, and comes in small glass bottles. This has 1/3 the sugar and it’s about 1/8 the price. SCORE!
Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Cacao Nibs
I’ll let you in on a secret. I don’t like chocolate that much. I do from time to time but it’s not a flavor I crave daily. I do love me some nibs though. These are the perfect sweet treat. Plus they have about as much iron as spinach which makes them a healthy snack for this anemic lady.
So there you have my April 2016 favorites! I do have some makeup favorites but I’m sure you’re tired of hearing about my rad Sephora Play! subscription and my VIB lipstick haul!
