#Pettywarz is Back

The NBA regular season is officially underway.

Everywhere you look, you can see monster slam dunks, Steph Curry bomb shots, and all things LeBron. It's like Christmas morning. With a brand new season to unfold, there are so many surprises that await us as we embark on this 82 game slugfest of a season. As usual, there will be highlight plays, and professionals doing professional things.

But what makes the NBA so much fun to watch? The drama, of course.

The NBA is unlike any other sporting league in the USA, scratch that, the world. It is nearly impossible to tap into another league that is so action-packed, and drama filled. Especially considering its wide international reach, new storylines can come from anywhere, at any time. Nothing that players do these days goes unnoticed.

Of course, the troll king, Joel Embiid will be back on his antics in the social media world, and on the court. But there are already a few developments that are brand new to this seasons NBA.

1. The Jimmy Butler Saga

As a Timberwolves (Timberbulls) fan, this whole situation is the murkiest and most messy thing in the NBA. Timberwolves great Kevin Garnett even went as far to call the current situation in Minnesota a "shit storm". Having that come from your franchises all-time player is not a way to start of the season -- I digress.

Jimmy Butler wants out of Minnesota, and Minnesotans want him (and coach Thibodeau) out of Minnesota. Until both those things happen, the wolves will be as unpredictable as a night in Vegas, keep your eye on this situation.

2. Kevin Durant's last season as a Warrior?

Klay Thompson said it, he thinks KD is out after this year. The evidence? Also there. After game one, KD's brother commentated on his brothers Instagram post, predicting a Kevin Durant departure. Will this hurt the chemistry of the Warriors? Probably not, but its fun to speculate.

3. Jayson Tatum blossoming into a great player, but an All-NBA level troll

During last weeks debut against the 76ers, Jayson went after the troll king, Joel Embiid, showing he's ready to troll anyone in his way. After a quick bucket, Tatum turned around and gave a wink to JoJo, and if that's not telling the king that there's competition for the throne, I don't know what is.

This season will be full of twists and turns, but per usual, entertainment will most certainly not be an issue.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
