coffee and cookies…

today i give a tribute to the simplicity of coffee and cookies. here is what i think, based on a realization from all this clean eating, that i indulge too often. i have worked for a coffee shop for a very, very long time. and we are all about “indulgence”…enjoying your morning time ritual, savoring flavors of coffee treats and sweets….enjoying the smells, tastes, sights of all things coffee and pastries. well, it got in my head, and i felt the need to always….well….indulge. which is lovely, but probably not the best decision for my waistline.

the great thing about clean eating is that i do not indulge as often as i used to. so when i finally do, it is euphoric. today, i give props to Bread and Co.’s delicious Almond Raspberry Linzer Cookies and a double short breve latte from starbucks. with the season of celebration among us, i am happy to take a moment to enjoy a sweet treat coupled by a creamy, delicious beverage. it was truly a sweet moment for me in the midst of my workday.
