oatmeal and a chai latte

(C) TaraBeth - - NYC

Wednesday Morning

Food: Hearty oatmeal with strawberry slices and raisins. Chai latte with real tea, soy milk, cinnamon, and a touch of honey.
Body: A 15-minute walk before lunch.
Mind: A lovely conversation with someone at the coffee shop who was interested in my work

Today was my favorite kind of work day: work from home!  Or some days, like today, work from a fantastic cafe!  I spent about four hours this morning at the Tea Lounge in Brooklyn.  It's got this great ambiance, friendly patrons, and really high-quality food and drinks.  I started off with an oatmeal breakfast with strawberries (I'm clinging onto this fruit as long as possible!) and raisins, accompanied by a delicious Chai latte.  This was not your Starbucks-style latte, made with syrup and sugar.  Instead, the Tea Lounge uses real, loose-leave tea bags, foamed soy milk, cinnamon, and honey - simple ingredients for a decadent drink.

Nutritional Highlights: 5 grams of fiber in the oatmeal, 25% daily value calcium in the large latte, 50% daily value vitamin C from the strawberries, 6 grams of protein in the whole meal.
