When I opened the refrigerator door this morning, I made a sad discovery: we were out of iced coffee. 😕
I’m usually on top of the iced coffee thing. As soon as we start to get low, I brew a fresh pot””usually about 1-2 times a week. Even though Mal and I always plow through the iced coffee, we rarely ever run out. I’m like an Iced Coffee Watchdog. I guess I was off of my game.
But, the lack of iced coffee in our house wasn’t the end of the world. It was actually a blessing in disguise because I got to make hot eggnog coffee this morning.
Eggnog-flavored coffee with a splash of eggnog is heavenly! 😀
To eat, I toasted an English muffin and added peanut butter and banana slices.
Can’t go wrong with this meal! 😉
Ok, hopefully, this doesn’t come off too sales-y. I just think getting enough calcium and vitamin D is important, especially for women.
So, the folks at Caltrate contacted me to sample their new Vanilla CrÃ¨me Soft Chews. I’m already a huge fan of the Adora Disks as a way to get my daily dose of calcium and vitamin D (and satisfy my sweet tooth), but I’m always open to trying to new things. Plus, Vanillla CrÃ¨me sounded mighty delicious.
As you probably know, most people struggle to get the recommended daily amounts of calcium and vitamin D from their diet alone. In fact, 80% of women don’t get enough calcium or vitamin D from food alone. Plus, the winter months often mean less sunlight (especially in the northeast), which can make reaching those daily doses even more challenging. And with 1 in 4 women currently at risk for osteoporosis, maintaining bone health is super important.
Ok, I’m off my soapbox. I just think it’s really important. (FYI: Eggnog has 15% of your daily recommended value of calcium! 😉 )
If you’re curious, the Vanilla Creme Soft Chews are really delicious. They taste a lot like vanilla frosting, especially the last few chews. Of course, this makes them easy to gobble right up– but at least I’m getting my calcium and vitamin D for the day!
