Minute for Mom: August/September
Things we’re a little obsessed with include a really fun fashion website, absurdly delicious yogurt and some of the best low-cal chips I have ever tasted. I call it therapy!
Calling itself a “collision of fashion and technology,” youlookfab.com is a fashion-advice website and forum that was created by Seattle fashionista Angie Cox and her software developer husband, Greg. Angie keeps a blog on the website, but my favorite part is the forum, where viewers can submit pictures of outfits, seeking advice. It’s not uncommon to see someone trying on dresses for a wedding that night, snapping pictures with her iPhone and sending them in before making a purchase. How many times have I wanted to do just that? It’s terrific — and stylish — fun.
Our fearless assistant, Alex Mitchell, says she’s in love with the Yo-Yakima yogurt shop in Union Gap. Alex says the shop is clean and fun, and there are a ton of flavors to choose from for toppings — “Anything from granola to gummy worms.” They also offer fresh fruit like kiwi or blueberries to top your yogurt. An extra plus is that colorie counts are published, which make watching your waistline a little easier. Alex admits that she sometimes tries to sneak in a trip to YoYakima before pickings up her son, Emmit — but he always catches her.
•Special K cracker chips
Also on the snack front, these “cracker chips” are on my list of pantry must-haves. They’re light, crispy and flavorful, and they don’t pack a big caloric punch. Unless you eat the whole box at once.
