Friday Fives: A Foodie’s Must-Haves
Meet this week’s Friday Fives feature, Massachusetts-based food expert, Charlotte Avery. In the summer of 2015, Charlotte started her @beforethebite drool-worthy foodstagram, which has since taken off. A true foodie, Charlotte, and her friends expressed their interest in making road trips for amazing restaurants. Her account has become so popular that food brands such as Halo Top ice cream and NoMoo Cookies have invited her to come try their products and feature them.
So, what are the five things this busy college student and food expert can’t live without? Read on to find out what your kitchen and makeup bag are missing!
How does a foodie look best in photos before her natural, summer glow peaks? Charlotte raves about this phenomenal faux glow product. Charlotte says, “This tanning mousse has become my best friend as we head toward the spring/summer seasons. I use it once a week and it gives me a non-streaky and natural-looking tan.”
Perfume seems like an essential for every girl, and Charlotte couldn’t agree more: “This is one of my favorite scents, I have been using it for about 5 years. The bottle lasts a long time and the smell is so subtle and fresh. One spray in the morning lasts throughout the whole day.”
Anyone who’s made the switch from peanut butter to almond butter knows how amazing it is on basically everything and Charlotte couldn’t agree more! Charlotte raves, “It's all- natural and tastes even better than regular peanut butter- I love using it with apples or oatmeal for a quick snack, but I also love using it for pancakes. It comes in flavors like maple, vanilla, and chocolate.”
What’s a kitchen counter without pantry without honey, right? Charlotte says, “This chili infused honey is so unique and one of my favorite new things. It tastes delicious on a warm biscuit or toast, but it also pairs perfectly with cold ice cream.“
Last but not least is Charlotte’s go-to garnish: “These organic cocoa nibs add the perfect amount of sweetness to any yogurt or acai bowl.”
