What Chia Pods & Ideas have in common!

From the desk of the 2nd Chef in Charge! What new idea have you come up with? What are you waiting for?

Her 1 Movement

Welp…for the next few days I’ll be working one (of my many jobs) in the city, NY that is. As much as I’m resistant to the 9-5 death trap, it’s only temporary and it pays the bills!

The thing I love most about New York City is the fact that there’s always ideas brewing. Even at 6:30 in the AM when people should just be waking up not rushing to the next train. Hey…that’s my opinion. BUT…it’s a wonderful thing.

This morning, I made my way into Duane Reade and stumbled upon a cool, new invention called the “Chia Pod.” It’s a healthy snack or breakfast for me. It comes in a little bowl with a spoon to match.

Try Something New Tuesday

I hope everyone’s week is off to a great start!

I wanted to share this new little gadget that we just got. So as you know, we are totally in love with smoothies and unfortunately my beloved Bella spun her last spin of delicious goodness. I have to be honest, I did go into a state of withdraw for a few days, until I found a new smoothie buddy.

After visiting, Target and Walmart, my last resort was Kmart. Shockingly, every now and then, I find good deals on appliances there.

Little did I know that it would be my lucky day! While scanning the aisles, I stumbled upon this beauty.

photoBrought to us by Hamilton Beach appliances, the “Wave Station Express” picked me up out of my state of withdraw, sent me off with a big smile and delicious, creamy and thick smoothie! For the low price of $25, I couldn’t be happier!

The Wave Station is easy to assemble and take a part for cleaning, which is something I really happen to adore. So if you’re looking for a new blender or a appliance just for smoothies or milkshakes, this is it! 🙂
