Over the past decade, categories such as yogurt, chocolate, and juice have made this leap from commodity to mass delicacy. Some consumers no longer blanch at a $9 bar of chocolate half the size of a Snickers or $11 for a cold-pressed juice. Not only have these become the fastest-growing segments in their respective categories, they’ve created multimillion-dollar markets that never before existed. Greek yogurt was an obscure 1% of U.S. yogurt sales in 2007. Then Chobani entered the scene, luring consumers away from their sugary-sweet Yoplaits. Now Greek yogurt accounts for 40% of the $7.4 billion U.S. yogurt market, while industry heavyweights like Danone and General Mills are racing to catch up.
Coffee crusaders are convinced that they are on the verge of a similar disruption, and they’ve got deep-pocketed investors cheering them on. After Starbucks’s 20-year reign as coffee’s dominant force, this once fringe group is launching a culinary, cultural, and financial battle to get a piece of the $30 billion U.S. coffee market.
These are the purists who aim to persuade us to convert our morning ritual to a $7 cup of black gold.
Meet the minds behind your coffee

A stressful Tuesday calls for rationalizing a feast of carbs.

  • Me: I have a funny confession babe
  • Him: you like my feet.
  • Me: Um, no.
  • Me: I think I could take on a PIzza Hut order right now.
  • Him: what?
  • Me: Carbs, cheese and grease might be the only comfort out there. I feel like I'm going to emotional binge eat tonight
  • Him: WOW.
Humility, the place of entire dependence on God

"Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)"

You call me out upon the waters

The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

[6x]
Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

I will call upon Your name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine

Grand Central Market Only L.A. 'Restaurant' To Make Bon Appetit's Best List

Though L.A. may have led the pack for the most nominations in Bon Appetit’s Top 50 Best New Restaurants list, only one location made it to the final “Hot 10:” Grand Central Market.

Turns out their mega-makeover after being open for nearly 100 years paid off. The modern food court on in Downtown’s Broadway District is home to the incredible pastrami, smoked fish platters, and throwback retro sodas at Wexler’s Deli; mouthwatering meats and burgers at sustainable butcher Belcampo; earth shatteringly delicious and innovative coffees at acclaimed G & B; creamy and dreamy churros con leche ice cream at McConnell’s; not to mention the many awesome taco shops, papuserias, and more that came before the new wave.

4 There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all. 5 There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord. 6 God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.

7 A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other. 8 To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice[b]; to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge.[c] 9 The same Spirit gives great faith to another, and to someone else the one Spirit gives the gift of healing. 10 He gives one person the power to perform miracles, and another the ability to prophesy. He gives someone else the ability to discern whether a message is from the Spirit of God or from another spirit. Still another person is given the ability to speak in unknown languages,[d] while another is given the ability to interpret what is being said. 11 It is the one and only Spirit who distributes all these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have.

1 Corinthians 12:4-11
The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.
G.K. Chesterton (via observando)
