Eat! #7 Boulder Latte
Even though I live on the East Coast, I love - really love - camping out west. If I had my druthers, I think I might have moved to Boulder Colorado long ago. (Some obvious clues that give me away include the tent, the hat, and the home-made latte I'm gripping in the midst of a camp-out. Tres chic!)
On the subject of chic, Boulder's own Elephant Journal online always offers me good reads, and I like to go for the funny stuff. I get enough of the serious yoga/buddha/mystic side of things on my own time, but Ele has it all...and the particular post I've linked you to below says plenty about our subject of food: Joe Yeoman discoursing about his change in eating habits.
And wise... It's worth the read ... Enjoy!!

Now onto the rest:
My hubby's recipe for livin' the good life: Soy-almond latte (and he serves me every morning in bed!! Yup...unless I'm in a tent of course...)
I am categorizing this as a main meal - first because it is my daily breakfast staple - and second, although it is liquid, the amount of soy and almond milk adds up to a hearty belly full.
You will need:
Cappuccino machine or milk steamer
vanilla almond milk
English Breakfast tea
To top it off:
dark chocolate to sprinkle over the top
a little sugar in the raw if you want a sweeter variation
Here's a video clip of the entire operation
Add-ins (or tag alongs in this case)
Sage advise for the day
You know the part about getting served in bed? Sometimes I'm awash in challenge and responsibility, and that latte is the best part of my day.
Love the one you're with. It really does mater.
What's on your plate??
