Tamp & Tap
..matcha & homemade dark choc chews.. Recipe for a start to a great morning. - When I first moved to #Nashville, I realized how hard the homeless people worked for their $1 newspaper sales and it made me realize, there's no excuse for not giving my all every day. They aren't sure where their next meal is coming from or if they're going to have a warm bed to sleep in at night, yet they're standing it there in the cold with a big smile on their face and glimpse of hope that they will make it one more day. I have zero excuses. - I remember catching eyes with a man at a stop light and didn't have any cash, only a bag of Dove dark chocolates with the inspiring messages on the wrapper. I gave him a handful and told him that's all I had. He was so gracious and kind and it warmed my heart. Tuesday message of : Go after what you believe in. Make it your goal to impact someone on a deeper, more level today. Life is so short. Let's start thinking about our and what we're for this morning as Thanksgiving is only a few days away. Safe travels to everyone going to see their family, and remember those who don't have family, let's all keep them in our thoughts and prayers. If you have an opportunity to serve, do it. Just a little bit goes a long way.

minerals & matcha Hydrating for NYE 2016! More wellness trends to be on the lookout for in the New Year are and If you haven't yet tried either, here are some reasons why I can't get enough: mineral water is one of the most supplements out there. Sulfates found in mineral water (esp. sanpellegrino_official ) support joint, muscle, and nervous system health and Plus, they come in BPA-free green glass bottles that help keep the from losing their potency. Watch out for too much as it can wreck havoc on your body, instead take a #vitaminD and #K2 supplement to stay on top of your game! My obsession I will save for a later post (or you can refer to one of my older rants on how amazing it is!) Perfect pre-pre-game and latte love

There has been a ton of buzz about Tap and Tamp and how good their coffee is. Since I really love coffee I wanted to go. Now you also know that my Dad is not a Foodie, he does not even know why people sun dry tomatoes! Much less why you would eat them.
The building is kind of woodsy. Lots of wood and orange paint. It looked nice and had a fun vibe. They had an awesome cool cold brew coffee system. I loved it!
However that was the only thing I loved. My salmon sandwich was pretty but the salmon was sliced too thick and it had no smokey taste at all. I love smoked salmon so it was pretty disappointing. The fish was just too slimy. I ended up eating my Mom's Italian style sandwich. It was fresh but I am not sure they put the olive spread on it like they were supposed to. It had the same orange creamy spread as my salmon.
Now Dad got a sandwich with a funny long name something ground beef, sausage and a cheese sauce on Brioche bread. It was supposed to have peepers and onions but it has SALAD instead. To be honest the cheese sauce had a raw flour taste and a pretty wonky texture. It was gross. Dad was NOT HAPPY!
He also got some beets with goat cheese and balsamic vinegar. I liked those but Dad.....is not a foodie!
What really upset me was the way they treated us, like we did not belong in the restaurant and that kinda upset me cause I love new food places. Did I mention that they had an old Nintendo system and when I could not get it work the girl just ignored me.
I guess the place is catering to Hipsters and I must be too short to qualify, or maybe they sensed Dad's nonfoodie vibe, either way I won't go back.
PS. It was pretty expensive too- I mean we could have had a feast at Elwood's! And they are always very nice!
Love the Cabbage Leaf,
