Chris hates coffee, but he will take a quick shot of espresso in one gulp to get a boost. I think the fancy new coffee machine by parents got me for my birthday is wearing him down, bit by bit. Soon, I’ll have him sipping a whole cup slowly on Saturday mornings with me.

Happy Thanksgiving! {thinkThin Giveaway}

by Lauren

I know, I know. The last thing on your mind the day before Thanksgiving is “I could use a gluten free, dairy free,  kosher, vegan, protein-packed bar about now.” I do know however that after a day loaded with celebration, gratitude, family, and food, when you wake up and can’t believe you are still full 12 hours later, you’ll be thinking “thin”.
