My favorite blogging spot is open for business once again! :mrgreen:

The Café Gato Rojo is Harvard’s student-run coffee shop, and it’s just a 60-second walk from my office. The Gato Rojo is the perfect place to blog– it’s cozy, laid-back, a little funky, and the coffee is delicious and cheap! It’s $1 for a small coffee! Not too shabby!

I ate my lunch at my desk before heading over to the Café Gato Rojo to blog.


Today’s lunch was a homemade ham sandwich on an Arnold Sandwich Thin. Inside was spicy mustard, lettuce, red pepper and cucumber slices. It was a good one!


I also had a Chocolate Whole Food Energy Bar with lunch. I’m not a fan of the other Amazing Grass bars, but I like this flavor. The dark chocolate coating is really yummy!


Afternoon Snack

As an afternoon snack, I packed a pear and a newish product from POM: POMx Iced Coffee (chocolate flavor). I tried the Café au Lait flavor last week and I liked a lot. (I’ll have to let you know how the chocolate flavor tastes! ;-))

My ReviewPOMx Iced Coffee РCaf̩ au Lait

At first, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this product. I mean, pomegranate iced coffee? It sounded interesting, but weird. I agreed to try some samples anyway.

It turns out that POMx Iced Coffee actually does not include or taste like pomegranate juice. It’s made with all-natural ingredients, including POMx, a potent antioxidant extract from POM Wonderful pomegranates, but it tastes just like creamy iced coffee. Each bottle contains a “Healthy Buzz” (175mg of caffeine) and potent pomegranate antioxidants. It’s a pretty cool combination if you ask me!

Of course, I enjoy drinking my own homemade iced coffee, but if I was on-the-go, I’d probably buy the POMx over another brand just for the healthy dose of antioxidants. Might as well, right?


I have a long afternoon meeting and then I am headed home to pack my brains out for for the rest of the night. Our apartment is about 2/3 packed, but we still have a lot to do!

Happy Monday, bloggies!
