This week is going to be super busy due to Tallinn Fashion Week, Grand Opening of Ülemiste Shopping Centre and not only that, there are going to be other exciting press events hosted by Luxottica, Pop.Up and House of Knits. Because of that I decided to do some grocery shopping between working and get my basic things + treats :)
Firstly, I went to M&S because I was craving hot chocolate. I decided for this one ( on the right ) because the sales assistant recommended it. She said that she uses it herself and it lasts longer than the other option. The taste is not super sweet, it's between bitter and sweet. // I have been trying not to drink milk. I buy the 3.5% one from time to time but when I see the Alpro Almond Drink on sale I immediately opt for that one ( on the left ). I use it to eat my cereal, add it to coffee and black tea.
As you might now already I went to Helsinki on Saturday. Although it was wonderful and sunny it was still freezing. Unfortunately I forgot that my beautiful coat lets the wind blow through. So, now I feel like I need a kick, a health kick. I decided to buy this sea buckthorn drink. I'm not the biggest fan of the taste but I sure believe that it works. // Next to the drink there is an eco grain bread. It's kind of expensive for a bread BUT it tastes amazing. Especially when you put it in a toaster and apply butter on top. Ohmy. I think the butter from a farm is healthier than margarine. I am not 100% if I'm right on that but it definitely tastes better.
Since I like to eat buckwheat ( with cottage cheese + sour cream ) on a daily basis I like to add something extra to it. Sometimes I add a few boiled eggs and sometimes I gravitate towards broccoli. Also, broccoli helps our bodies to absorb iron and I seriously lack iron, so I really need to incorporate it into my diet.
I have never bought muesli or cereal from M&S and I usually buy something sweet and cheap from the grocery store. This time I decided to try this out because hello?! how can I pass this pack of goodness.. :D I hope it tastes as good as it says though.
There was a time when I ate a lot of avocados but I stopped for some reason. Today I just forced myself to buy these. Like it was so hard, it actually wasn't :D I heard that avocados are in top 3 of the most balanced foods on planet Earth. Coconut (water?) is second. // Funny fact, I ate lemon every single day for 6 months and sometimes a lemon a day. I was craving it so bad. Then I had some weird allergy(?) or something in those lines and I stopped because my doctor thought that citrus might be causing it. I still have no idea what was the cause. Anyway, lemon water and green tea with lemon is delicious!
My ghd colleague introduced me to M&S canned soups. I tried the cream tomato one at her place and fell in love. They are amazing for when I'm tired and need to make myself dinner, quickly.
This protein bar was introduced to me by Iti and over the last 4 months I've tried about 5-6 different protein bars. This one has been the most tasteful so far and Iti thinks that as well. I actually eat protein bars very rarely and I tend to try them when I visit Helsinki but perhaps I should look into them more. Do you eat protein bars during your work days?
I hope the post is somewhat interesting and sorry for no Estonian text this time. I just think that English sounds so much better and it's a pain in the *** to translate it + the post would be too long. Tomorrow there will be another post about health and on Wednesday there will be a VLOG of our trip to Helsinki :) Talk to you tomorrow! xx
