I really enjoy reading Anna’s Things I’m Loving Lately posts. I always find something interesting in there and people like Anna I trust – I know that if she likes something, there’s a good chance that she does actually like it and has not been paid to say that she likes it.
From time to time I do similar posts (category: Stuff I Like) and I plan to do one a month from now on. I think it’s a good way to spread the word about some great products but also helps me to appreciate the little things in life.
So here are some of my February likes.
1. Cashew milk
Because almond milk is so 2016.
But seriously, almond milk tastes a bit floury and the unsweetened kind I always used to buy especially so. Cashew milk, however, does not need to be sweetened at all and is naturally sweeter and smoother.
When we were in Australia in December my gluten-free child really enjoyed weetbix type of cereal made from sorghum. Australia is really good with gluten free products and it was really easy to spot in the supermarket.
A few weeks ago I found the same exact thing here in London and my kid and I are both happy as :) Sorghum’s apparently nutritionally similar to oats and it does not upset his digestion so he’s stoked.
• Sorghum, baby • My gluten-free child and I are stoked to have found sorghum “wheat bix” here in London (they are easily found in Australia). I have mine with cashew milk (my stomach doesn’t handle cow milk either ) #nutribrex #sorghum #glutenfreebreakfast PS. Ain’t nobody got time to make breakfast look pretty with berries & stuff, this is real life breakky
3. Tikiboo unicorns & rainbows leggings
I do not know anyone who’s into fitness who does not love funky leggings. My latest ones are from Tikiboo, they are only £34 and have a nice high waist and a drawstring at the top.
5. JAW grips
I love pull ups but if the volume is high, my palms rip. I’ve been playing around with these fabric grips from JAW (sent to me by the lovely folk at Crucial Fitness who sell loads of JAW stuff here in the UK – JAW is an Aussie brand) and I’ve figured out that the trick to make sure they’re not slippery is to chalk them generously both on top and in between your hand and the protector.
✋I think 17.2 will have pull ups I tend to rip my hands if the volume of pull ups is over 80-90. The JAW grips (from Crucial Fitness) help, they’re thinner than leather grips so you can feel the bar better but the trick with these are that you have to chalk them over AND UNDER the palm protector before you hop on the bar – otherwise they will he slippery. What’s your palm protection? #jawgrips #crucialfitness #pullups #palmprotection
5. Yellow nails
These were inspired by the leggings above. They’re Opi gel and the colour is called Exotic Birds Do Not Tweet. I’m a foreigner here in London so one could call me an ‘exotic bird’ but I definitely tweet :)
5. Sauerkraut with juniper berries
I eat this with most of my meals these days. Seriously delicious. Just cabbage, salt and juniper berries (which have thankfully been picked out) ((they are hard little buggers in case you didn’t know)).
That’s all for now. Tomorrow I’ll start collecting my March likes already and the main one will be that it will be MARCH! #springcantcomesoonenough
