I dumped too much Moringa powder into my water bottle, so I got creative: a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of dark cocoa, shaken well. It still tastes like a tree, but with a sweet kick.
(I'm still at a half teaspoon per water bottle, adding water with every few sips, but a full teaspoon is pretty good, even if it needed sweetening.)

Organic blueberry waffles drizzled with local clover honey. Oh, I spoil myself.

I can no longer stand the taste of artificial sweetness. There are some exceptions, of course, but in general I do not use most artificial sweeteners, not even Splenda, although with Splenda I may eventually adjust to what I feel is a wretched taste. I do like the taste of erythritol and of stevia, and I wish they were more readily available, as Splenda is, in packet form.

I could probably stop drinking coffee completely if I could replace it with Zola Original Acai Juice or Sambazon Rio Energy Acai Juice several times a week. Considering that both cost less than a tall latte at Starbucks, I'd feel a bit better.

My husband and I agree that Rose is a supermodel kitten. She has a beautiful face for a cat.

Oh, weekend. Oh, company.

Adam and Billy are preparing the big green van to be cleaned out. Adam will donate it to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

(Speaking of Dr. Bronner's, I need to try that new Organic Shikakai soap. Shikakai is amazing.

Also, in my category of newly tasted exotic superfruit beverage obsession:

Oh. My. Fucking. Gods.
I found this at my local Yes Organic Market on Friday. It was fairly cheap, and the ingredient list read like a Who's-Who Of Superfood All-Stars Live At The Academy Awards Walking The Red Carpet. I bought two bottles of the Pomegranate. I just tried one. Holy Mother Of God Wow. I'm willing to make this a daily beverage addiction. Or maybe every other day. I can spare four dollars a bottle.

Sometimes it really pays to complain. Swanson Vitamins, the website from which I order most of my supplements, was having issues with its checkout, so I hit "Chat" to speak to a representative, and she told me that while they worked on the problem, I should call the hotline, mention her name and tell them she gave me permission to have free shipping. So, I will soon have my restock of Yerba Mate capsules and Bamboo extract capsules delivered with free shipping. Yay.

I have been so profoundly happy with the blend of Rhodiola Rosea and Yerba Mate that I've marked the supplements as Take Forever alongside MSM, Cat's Claw, Ashwagandha, Gotu Kola, Passion Flower, and Neem. I will be adding Bamboo to that. I've been taking Horsetail, but Bamboo offers about 70 percent more silica than Horsetail. Silica is important.

Now that I've been using a Sigg water bottle and a Kleen Kanteen water bottle for a few months, the only plastic-bottle beverages I buy are tea and juice blends. I particularly hunt down my two favorites from Honest Tea: Pomegranate White Tea With Acai and Citrus Energy Green Tea. Now if they made the infamous Pomegranate Red Tea With Goji in a plastic bottle, I'd buy so much they'd have to give me a discount. I love glass bottles, but I'm paranoid about traveling with glass.

In the meantime, I'm making do with Purely Juice's Totally Tropical With Goji juice that I can buy at Giant. It's got mango, which is also very beneficial.
