I rely on afternoon pick me ups to get me through the day. By the time two o’clock rolls around, I’m hungry, want to nap, and ready to quit all of my work. Sometimes, all a girl needs is a caffeinated drink and a damn sandwich! I had been going to the cafe up the road and spending almost $10 every day on my latte’s and lunch. I finally got smart and decided to buy all the ingredients so I could make my own. That way, I don’t waste time leaving the place, I save money, and it’s faster.
Above is a drink my friend, Sealy, got me hooked one. Remember a couple of weeks ago, I went to Cast Iron Waffles? They sell the cold espresso in bottles which was used in the drink above with almond milk and a packet of Stevia.
The wraps I usually buy at the cafe have hummus, tomato, turkey, mustard, and lettuce wrapped in a tomato basil wrap.
I can make about six wraps under $20 dollars. Start rethinking your lunches!
What is your favorite afternoon pick me up?
