On-The-Go Goodness: LALA Yogurt Smoothie! #LALAforLife

1cebd762-63f9-11e6-a717-22000a66c666yogurt3Breakfast is my battle cry. In my view, this is the most important meal of the day. So, when Enrico has no time to whip up his famous made-from-scratch waffles, or his mean chilaquiles verdes, I immediately look for an on-the-go alternative that will help me face whatever the world might have in store for me.

I need something tasty for inspiration, and definitely protein for power.

I was so excited to hear that LALA Yogurt Smoothies had arrived in the US. The concept of drinking something packed with healthy and yummy goodness has always made me think of the licuados my mom used to make for us before school, plus, LALA is already a brand that I know and love. I definitely had to jump at the opportunity to try them.

This is what showed up at my door!

I recently had the perfect opportunity to put LALA Yogurt Smoothies to the “taste”- I had them handy while organizing our recent Noche Mexicana. I was in crazy(er) mode for a few days, and needed a ready-to-go healthy option way beyond the ubiquitous coffee and pastry that would only offer a boost with empty calories. I went through three of the flavors in a wide available assortment: Strawberry, Strawberry Banana and Tropical Mango. With real fruit, calcium and protein, getting your vitamins A & D never tasted so good! I even had one as a snack.


So what is next? Trying to find them at my nearest store. Luckily, LALA is a click or two away: http://www.lalafoods.com/where-to-buy/ If you don’t find your LALA Yogurt Smoothie near you, tell LALA you want it! #LALAforlife

Now, if I could only get some bottled sleep to go too!

Estampas de Mi Ciudad – Mujeres en el Mercado (Women at the Market)

Ladies in folk attire shop at the Sunday  market or “tianguis” in Tlacolula, Oaxaca.  The open-air market of Tlacolula is the oldest and busiest in Latin America. Week over week, more than a thousand merchants bring to the market a great selection of products ranging from fruits and vegetables, to farm animals, mezcal, handcrafts and hand-made clothing.  Visiting this market is particularly fascinating-  many Tlacolulans wear folk attire and speak Zapotec as their mother tongue.
