Inspired by the lovely Kirsten of A Karma Project, who recently posted some of the foods she can't live without, I've decided to share a few of my favorite go-to foods with you, my dear readers. I'll be sharing one food item each day this week, with a focus on foods that are healthful yet convenient. While I love making meals from scratch - and do so quite often - I also appreciate the time and effort I save by using pre-packaged options (especially when packaged minimally or in environmentally friendly ways).
Today's Nourishing Bite is actually more of a nourishing sip. I discovered Oregon Chai Chai Tea Concentrates several years ago. As a Chai lover, I have sampled various versions of this yummy Indian-spiced beverage. While Teaism's Chai remains my all-time favorite, it's not always possible to drop by my favorite tea house, especially now that I live further away. When I can't get to Teaism and don't have time to create my own version at home, I reach for Oregon Chai's boxed concentrates. These days, I prefer the Slightly Sweet version, which, compared to the Original, has just a teeny bit of sugar. Mixed with almond milk and poured over ice, it's sweet, spicy, creamy and delicious. In cooler months, I heat it in the microwave for a warm and comforting treat. Oregon Chai also offers vegan, sugar-free, and caffeine-free versions of its concentrate.
Have you tried Oregon Chai? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
