We can all use a few more veggies in our diets, right? Indeed! Well, my husband and I just completed an intestinal cleanse- eating only fruits and veggies for 3 days. Boy was it a wonderful reminder just how easy- and delicious!- it is to add fresh produce to every meal. We feel energized, our body aches disappeared and we slept well. Best of all, I’ve curbed my habit of grabbing salty crunchy snacks in favor of an apple or a celery stick with peanut butter smeared inside. This time of year is a GREAT time to find local and fresh produce abounding in the Pacific Northwest. Grab your favorites and get creative. You won’t regret it!
Amazon Expanding to Bellevue?
With the new “head tax” policy looming over big businesses in Seattle, there’s chatter that Amazon may start expansions in Bellevue. With so many folks commuting across from east side to west side, a decision like this can render big impacts on both sides. Here’s the speculation.
The Rates are Rising!
We all knew it was coming… the infamous “they” have been talking about it for quite some time. Will mortgage rates in Washington hit 5%? Likely, yes… and by the looks of things, sooner than we expected. Keep watch on the daily rates if you are in the market for a home loan. This can help you plan!
Coffee and Dog Treats, Anyone?
The Seattle Barkery is making dog-lover fame here in the PNW. A mobile food truck that serves handmade goodies for canines and their people- who can ask for a better day at the dog park? Their treats are so popular, you may even see them for sale at local doggie day care facilities and pet stores. Best thing about the Seattle Barkery? They make custom b-day cakes for “you know who”. Find their schedule of destinations here. *coming soon to Magnussen Dog Park on a permanent basis!
