Coffee Talk

Nik:  Have you heard of Egg Coffee?  My aunt said that in Minnesota, her family used to crack an egg into steaming hot coffee, let it solidify, and then skim it out.  The claim is that it adds a certain richness and clarity to the coffee.  I did a little research and it’s really a thing.  I love coffee and of course I have to try. This could be a complete disaster…
Alex:  Egg coffee? I’m being judgmental and putting this in the ‘sounds gross’ category. I think I’m going to stick with my Bulletproof Coffee.
Nik:  Evvvvveryone is drinking B.C.,  I just made it the other day.  So good.
Alex:  And super easy. That’s why I make it! Butter, heavy cream, and oil sure does a coffee good.
Nik:  Wait, what?  You’re suppose to use Ghee, coconut oil and vanilla extract.
Alex:  What the f$ck is Ghee?
Nik:  Clarified butter.  Ayurveda considers ghee to be sāttvik or sattva-guṇi (in the “mode of goodness”), when used as food.
Alex:  Who are you right now?
Nik:  Have you heard of ‘oil pulling’?
Alex:  No, but the sound of it takes my head straight to the gutter. Great, now I’m horny.
Nik:  I don’t even know what we’re talking about anymore.  I’m going to make Egg Coffee.

Circuit Works

Nik:  The older a person gets, the faster the ass heads south. It’s not okay. You know what is okay? Circuit Works. I get so bored with gym workouts and kind of can’t stand classes, but this is the perfect place for my scattered mind. It’s an interval/circuit training workout that rotates through a series of stations combining aerobic and weight training exercises. The music is loud, the instructors motivating, and your mind is engaged because you’re quickly moving through the different stations.

New Year: My Fit Foods

Wednesday, January 29, 2014 , , , , 0

Nik:  A friend told me about My Fit Foods. It’s great. I’m a huge fan. I’m not trying to lose weight, but I find cooking for one to be rather dull, not to mention expensive, so I stock up on meals for the week from this place. Someone with OCD more severe than mine definitely organized the store. You walk in to find walls of refrigerators organized by breakfast, lunch and dinner. Within

New Year: Green Juice

Nik:  Green juice. I’ve been doing this for over a year, but I love it and wanted to share. Every Sunday I buy five green juices from Pressed Juicery or Juice Crafters and line them up in my fridge for the week. It’s the first thing I drink every morning. This simple ritual puts me in a healthy state of mind. We’re lucky to live here because you can find a

Happy Birthday Mentor!

Alex:  Nik, I’m so lucky and thankful that our worlds have crossed paths. You inspire me in more ways than one. You make me laugh and you’re there for me when I cry. You are one of the strongest women I have ever met and the rock for so many people. I don’t know how you do it. Happy Birthday! I look forward to celebrating many more birthdays together! :)

I’m obsessed with… Mitch Stone Essentials

Nik:  You know what’s fun about saying yes to random party invites in LA? You sometimes meet nice people who just launched a hair care line and they want to give you full size samples for your feedback. Here’s my feedback Mitch Stone: Love. I smell like Hawaii and I’m super happy about it because I’m freezing my tatas off in Wisconsin right now.

Park You

Tuesday, November 19, 2013 , , , , 0

Alex:  Parking enforcement does not mess around out here. In Wisconsin you could get away with a lot more! Today I went to Runyon to hike. It has such a different vibe than Temescal. Can’t complain though, I’m happy hiking anywhere. Whenever I’m this cheesy, I actually crave cheese. Is that weird? Anyway, I loved how many dogs were at Runyon. I felt like I was walking up a mountain, surrounded by puppies and a ...
