Naked donut holes in the shower for breakfast
Did I get your attention? That's what happens when I run two thoughts together. I've been known to do it quite often, and have even been corrected for it in a comment on this blog (I accidentally typed "my husband's wife" instead of "my cousin's wife;" it's now fixed and the reasoning for my error is in the comment section. Thanks ~Melissa, yet again, for pointing it out).
When I ran out to get more of my facial mask (I use Boots Botanics Conditioning Clay Mask on a regular basis, but I also try to get Lush's Cupcake whenever I'm lucky enough to make it to one of its stores) yesterday, I also came across Method's "go naked" line. I picked up the fragrance-free hand wash for now, but don't be surprised if I purchase more of the products in the future.
I already use the daily shower spray in between bathing sessions to keep my shower fresh, so I could easily see myself using another "naked" product to actually clean the shower/tub. At the moment, I use Biokleen. However, a product with "naked" on the label seems much more appropriate for the occasion (don't tell me you've never cleaned your shower/tub in the buff).
But enough about that. If you want more information about Method's products, check out this interview on G Living.
Now, on to breakfast (fully clothed). You guessed it, donut holes (that photo at the top is like deja vu). I made the Ani Phyo ones featured in VegNews again, but with my own spin on them. I used apricots instead of bananas and added some cinnamon for a little spice. I also rolled them in a mix of mesquite powder and a little more cinnamon, instead of the coconut listed in the original recipe (maybe I'll need another shower after eating these).
The result was pure bliss. What a great way to start the day. Enjoy :-)
By the way, you might want to double check your dried apricots for pits before putting them in your food processor. I had a stray one clunking around in mine. But, if you don't catch them all, they won't harm you; apricot pits actually are very beneficial. Check out this discussion.
