Good morning!

So, you guys know that we are die-hard iced coffee lovers in our house. We’re also big fans of almond milk. Mal uses it in his iced coffee every morning, and it’s my go-to milk of choice when it comes to cooking, baking, or cereal-eating. I recently had the opportunity to partner with Elmhurst, and I am so, so, so impressed with their line of plant-based (nut and grain) milks, especially their unsweetened almond milk (aka “milked almonds”) and chocolate peanut milk, which combines two of my favorite foods in life: chocolate and peanuts. Helllooooo! It’s so incredibly delicious in iced coffee! 🙂

Now, let me explain just how “excited” I am about Elmhurst’s unsweetened almond milk. (You can also see why I am such a goober.)

The other morning, when Mal opened the fridge to make his morning iced coffee, he noticed Elmhurst’s unsweetened almond milk and asked me what it was. Apparently, I got really excited about the new product in our fridge and enthusiastically replied: “It’s almond milk with just two ingredients!!!” (I hadn’t even had my iced coffee yet, but I was pumped to tell him about it. Haha!)

After hearing my reply (and seeing my goofy expression), Mal just stared at me (probably with secondhand embarrassment) and then replied: “Wow. You’re really excited about this almond milk.”


Elmhurst’s unsweetened milked almonds is made with just two ingredients: almond and water. No sugar, no salt, no natural flavors, and it has 5g of protein per serving. It’s also GMO-free (hooray!) and free of carrageen, a common ingredient in many almond milks on the market right now. Never heard of Carrageen? Here’s what Carrageen is all about and why it’s a potential problem.

You can purchase Elmhurst products online and they even have a subscription option for the unsweetened almond milk, which means you can have it shipped right to your house every 2 weeks (save 20%) or every month (10%). We’re ALWAYS buying almond milk, so I especially love this option! And the chocolate peanut milk might just become a staple in the morning iced coffee! 🙂

Once my iced coffee was ready to go, it was time for breakfast, which was super simple and quick! The morning got away from me and, before I knew it, it was just about time for CrossFit. I spread some peanut butter on a rice cake and topped it with banana slices and cinnamon. Boom. Breakfast done.

At short awhile later, I arrived at CrossFit.

Thankfully, it was a low-key workout – stretching, row, and some ab work. I was happy to just break a sweat.

On the way home, I stopped by Cafe 53 at Rosa Farms for an iced coffee. (I also bought Quinn a vanilla macaroon because he loves them so much.)

As soon as I got home, I popped some One-Pan Roasted Kielbasa & Veggies into the oven for lunch and then hopped on 1 of 5 phone calls for the day. Murphy kept me company.

After my call, I dug into lunch, which is one of my favorite “recipes” lately!

Yum! I went back for seconds! 🙂

Calls 2-4 took up most of the afternoon, but I took a quick break to shower before hopping on my final call of the day.

After that call, I rewarded myself with a couple of cranberry almond shortbread cookies. (The owner of Rosa Farms sent me home with a bag, so I just had to see what they were all about. Verdict: Delicious! And they’re made by a local company!)

After that, I took Murphy for a walk, replied to a few time-sensitive emails, and then packed up for the day, so I could get Quinn from school. It was quite the busy and productive day!

Question of the Day
