Taking a cue from many other bloggers who often feature “Things I’ve Been Loving Lately” posts, I thought it might be fun to do something similar here at MegGoesNomNom. Here are a few of my recent faves!
COCOZIA Organic Coconut Water
Epicurex LLC kindly gifted me a case of their coconut water for me to review on the blog and I’ve been loving it!
Their timing was quite perfect, because I had a chance to try out Cocozia right after my trip to Costa Rica last month, during which I got totally hooked on fresh coconut water - chilled, and straight from the fruit. (Which, coincidentally, is a bit harder to come by back home.)
On the way home from our trip, in Ft. Lauderdale during our layover, I actually purchased a single serving coconut water (of a different, unknown brand) for the first time ever and was a bit disappointed with the “off” flavor it had compared to the fresh fruit I’d experienced in Costa Rica.
I was extremely pleased when I arrived home and tried out Cocozia’s coconut water! It absolutely does not have any “off” flavor whatsoever, but actually tastes like you’re drinking straight from the fruit. I’ve been loving sipping on it at work in the afternoon, for a little hydration and lower-sugar pick-me-up. As a bonus, the product is USDA Certified Organic, Kosher, Fair Trade Licensed, and it contains no GMOs nor preservatives. Nice!
I snagged mine on Amazon with free shipping, and will definitely be buying myself some more in the future.
Netflix Fireplace For Your Home
I just recently discovered “Fireplace For Your Home” on Netflix, featuring an hour-long stream of, you guessed it: a burning fireplace. You have your choice of a straight-up, no-fuss crackling fireplace, or a Yule Log fireplace with holiday music. I love having the fireplace on in the background while working on my blog and sipping some Candy Cane Lane tea in the evenings! So cozy.
I need more of these! Mine was filled with family, friends, and FOOD.

Cocobon Red Blend
This was a random, lucky pick from my local supermarket, Meijer. One of the better wines I’ve had in a while actually, and it was a steal! It’s a 2013 California Red Blend from Cocobon Vineyards.
I shared a bottle of this with my lovely former co-worker friends who were in town for the holiday this weekend!
Dole Chopped Salad Kits
I’ve been addicted to these Dole Chopped Salad Kits lately! I love taking a bag and mixing it up at work for lunch (and eating the WHOLE DANG THING which is A LOT of salad!) or serving it as a quick-to-prepare side with dinner. The kits feature a nice variety of crunchy lettuce and veggies, including romaine, scallions, cabbage, and kale, and come with toppings and dressing. The Sunflower Crunch and Chipotle & Cheddar are my two favorites.
And there you have it! A few of my recent faves. Hope you enjoyed.
