An All Natural Tea Party!
Sometimes a snack transforms into a moment of divine all natural indulgence. Tea Parties are festive and fun. My girls each love them. A couple of years ago Miss M chose a Winter Wonderland Tea Party theme for her birthday bash. It was great fun. Sometimes I need something a little less elaborate.
Last week we were visiting Disney World. There was excitement and a lot of activities. I needed some downtime, so while the kiddos slept, I escaped with a tea party for one. It was the perfect way to relax and take some “me” time.
I recently discovered Rooiboos tea so I was excited to try the Davidson’s Organic Rooibos Spiced Chai Tea. A caffeine free tea that offers a blend of flavors from organic cinnamon, organic cloves, natural spices and organic rooibos. Oh, my! It was delicious. It was a warm indulgence.
All Natural Facts about Tea:

Nature’s Bakery All Natural Fig Bars
While I sipped a cup of Davidson’s Organic rooiboos spiced chai tea, I had to make a decision; which of the Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars to eat. I love fig newtons and Nature’s Bakery offers a selection of flavors to tantilize your tastebuds: fig, peach-apricot, apple cinnamon, blueberry and raspberry. I opted for the fig.
Let’s talk about these fig bars. They were far more than I expected. Who knew a 100 percent whole-wheat snack could taste this good. I’m not kidding. Jam-packed with tasty fig filling! They have a texture like a chewy cookie!
