TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® Pods + Meal Planning

I’m usually not a big tea drinker. I’m much more of a coffee drinker. However, I will make one exception. Chai Tea. My biggest complaint about tea is that it tastes like hot water. Not so with chai. It’s so full of all the warming flavors that I love. I’ve never been able to make the perfect cup of chai at home. It never seemed to taste as good as from a coffee shop.

Until now.

TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods are made with real tea leaves. It combines the flavors of sweet cinnamon, fragrant cardamom, and spicy ginger. With over 5,00 years of Indian history, chai is a perfect amount of sweetness and spice, with spice coming in at the end for just the right amount of kick.


Brewing the drink is a two step process, you start by adding a powdered mix, which is basically a sweetened dairy blend, to the cup before you brew. Then brew the K-Cup® pod as usual, stir and enjoy! There’s nothing else to add.

I first tried the vanilla caramel flavor because I am a huge fan of anything caramel. It did not disappoint at all. There was just the right amount of flavor and creaminess to make it definitely taste more than just hot water. The classic latte is the same – oh so good!

TAZO® has partnered with New York Times Bestselling author and host Padma Lakshmi to celebrate the release of the new K-Cup® pods.Tea and chai have always been a part of Padma Lakshmi’s life and family heritage and she is excited to celebrate the flavors of chai with TAZO®. She developed recipes that pair perfectly with a cup of chai and you can find them by visiting

Meal Planning {Week of May 22}

What's for dinner this week I've got a weeks worth of easy, healthy meal planning ideas for the whole family to enjoy.

Happy Sunday Funday!

I love a good weekend and this has been a good one so far. Yesterday I woke up at even earlier zero dark thirty hour and ran a sunrise run up Mt. Major with Sarah. I rushed back home for kid activities in the morning, picked up a sweet loveseat from a yard sale, ran some errands around town before coming home and crashing hard around dinner. It was an awesome run but I was t.i.r.e.d later in the day. Totally worth it and can’t wait to do it again soon.

Later today I’m hitting up outdoor yoga in the park followed with some beer sipping. Fingers crossed the weather holds out and it doesn’t rain!

Stonyfield Yogurt and Navitas

I have to share one of my new favorite additions to my breakfast and snacks – Navitas Naturals Mulberry Berries and Hemp Seeds. My kids think the Mulberry Berries look like mini pine cones. They are kind of like dates in texture and sweetness and are the perfect super food addition to anything. I’ve been adding them to my morning Stonyfield Whole Milk Greek Yogurt/Granola Bowls. I’ve also added the Navitas Hemp Seeds to my massaged kale for an extra dose of nutrients and crunch. (FYI – I received these products as a Stonyfield YoGetter).

What’s for Dinner? {Week of May 15}

What's for dinner this week? I've got easy, healthy meal ideas for the whole family to enjoy.

Hey there!

Does that salad look divine? It’s my latest obsession lately. Zoodles, strawberries, snap peas, walnuts and spinach with a balsamic vinaigrette. I’ve had it for lunch but it could easily be made for dinner too. Grilling up chicken, salmon or shrimp to top it off would be perfect. So good and so easy.

I hope you are having a great weekend. Saturday was absolutely fan-freaking-tastic. The weather was absolutely gorgeous from the moment I woke up till I went to bed. It was a full day of kid activities in the morning, a trail run in the afternoon (why do I run most of my miles on the road?!?!), followed with date night with Ron to celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary a few days early. It was a great day!

It’s Sunday so besides being Sunday Runday, it’s meal planning day.

What’s for dinner this week?

Sunday: Grilled Fish Tacos
Monday: Quinoa Power Salad with Grilled Chicken
Tuesday: Build your own taco bar
Wednesday: Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken Thighs
Thursday: Shrimp Pesto Zoodle Bowls
Friday: Pizza Night
Saturday: Leftovers or wing it!
