Cinnamon Tea!

(Paleo – Day: 32)

Yesterday, thanks to the barista’s suggestion at the Barnes and Noble coffee bar, Mom introduced us to an absolutely AMAZING tea… Hot Cinnamon Spice by Harney and Sons.  It is fantastic!  It was so great that Tooti and I each had to get a cup of it after Mom let us sample hers… and then we had to buy a box of this tea today.  Somehow it’s amazingly sweet without adding any type of sweetener, the cinnamon flavor is really strong, but not overpowering.  It’s kind of like if you took the perfect cinnamon roll and made it into a cup of tea.  Yeah, it’s that awesome.

Speaking of Cinnamon Rolls… Cinnamon Roll Day is October 4! Yay! I really want to try a recipe I found for Paleo Cinnamon “Roll” Muffins… they look delicious.

If you need some ideas on tea for two and tunes for tea… check out Tea and Sympathy’s Post… They used a song I suggested! Yay! 🙂

Things I learned in 30 days… or Paleo: Day 31

  1. I learned that anyone really CAN cook.  Ratatouille says it best: 
  2. I learned that I really DO feel better on Paleo… and this song definitely represents how I was feeling “OK” but not great.   It’s a good reminder to keep going forward, or as Lewis Carroll wrote, “I can’t go back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”
  3. I learned what beets look like.
  4. I now know what a jicama tastes like.
  5. Miracles happen: I like mushrooms now. I also love cooking now.
  6. Planning ahead is your friend.
  7. Planning ahead makes my life easier.
  8. I don’t miss dairy.
  9. I like coconut milk
  10. Never discount something just because you think the combination of foods is weird.  I actually didn’t cook anything that I didn’t end up liking.
  11. You can make time to eat right.
  12. Eating well is a commitment.
