Saturday Revelations

by HEAB on November 14, 2009

My Whole Foods Revelation: If you hang out there long enough, you’ll keep running into famous people. In fact, look who I ran into there last night…


Maggie and Bobby!!!! Say Yes to Salad is one my favorite blogs (read it everyday), and I was ecstatic when Maggie emailed me yesterday morning with the news that she and Bobby would be passing through Nashville last night on their cross-country trip from California to New York. We met up at Whole Foods, but unfortunately the hot bar had already been closed. So, we ended up at Athens Family Restaurant, a totally bizarre Greek/breakfast place that is open 24 hours on the weekends. Maggie and Bobby had covered over 600 miles yesterday, but were in good spirits. Maggie, I was so happy to finally meet you in person (Bobby too!), and I definitely plan to take you up on your NYC visit offer. (VeggieGirl…I’m thinking January). :) Wishing you safe travels today my friends.

So, I mentioned earlier this week that I’m upping my protein, and you know how you hear about those people that can reintroduce foods they’re allergic to back into their diets after taking a break from said foods? Well, needless to say, I tried that with Greek yogurt this week. Big HUGE mistake. I won’t go into details, but I get it, okay? Dairy is definitely not my friend. Nor, do I ever think it will be. My monthly fro-yo fix is about all I can do, and I probably shouldn’t even do that. Why is frozen yogurt so good?!?

My Fage Revelation: Rinse out the container, and your dog will become possessed and play with it for about 5 minutes…


Last year I gave up chewing gum for Lent, and honestly, I have not chewed it much since. Occasionally at work, I’ll pop a piece or two of some all natural xylitol gum we sell. However, I love garlic, minced, powdered, roasted – whatever. I love it all.

Gum Revelation: All natural xylitol gum does nothing for garlic breath. This week, I bought my first pack of Extra Peppermint gum in almost a year, and I think it’s here to stay.


That’s my it‘s Saturday morning, and I have to be at work at 6:45 AM look. FYI: Not only does Extra gum help with garlic issues, it’s also great for morning coffee breath. :)

Last, but not least, I love coffee shops, Frothy Monkey in Nashville being my favorite.

Coffee shop revelation: I have totally become that person I used to judge…yes, I’m the girl in the trendy coffee shop sitting in front of her Macbook sipping on her cafe au lait (preferably with rice milk) and occupying a table that was not meant for one for way too long. Please don’t judge. 😉
