Coconut Oil & Coffee

If you’ve ever heard of BulletProof coffee, you either love it, hate it, or just flat out think it’s a little strange. (lol)  I drank it for quite a while and loved (still love) it. But, 4 cups of coffee a day with that many calories tends to leave you a little hungry. Or, it did me anyway.

Thanks to a wonderful friend, I have found an alternative. Brew a cup of coffee (I use my Keurig), add 1t coconut oil (personally use the flavored), and a few drops of vanilla flavored sweet drops (stevia).

It’s delicious! And it’s good for you, clean, and low on calories! One thing that makes it super easy is my Cuisinart CSB-75BC Smart Stick 2-Speed Immersion Hand Blender, Brushed Chrome. Once the coffee is brewed, coconut oil and sweet drops are added simply insert immersion blender for about 10 seconds and, voila, deliciousness is ready!

Anyway, if you’re trying to eat clean or just want to try something new, give this coffee a try. You may want to try it a couple times before judging, but it is quite delicious.

Workout when you can

Busy, busy day today!
I – personally – am a not a fan of working out in the morning. There are a ton of benefits when you make your workout a morning routine, but I still can’t/won’t get up early enough to do it. 🙂
TodayIsMyTomorrow
Anyway, I knew it was going to be near impossible to get a workout in with today’s schedule. So guess what I did?! Yup, worked out in the morning before doing anything else. Nothing to distract me, nothing to keep me tied up too long to get it done.
It was a little difficult this morning – not a morning person 😉 BUT I am so glad I did. My post workout high still hit head on. I don’t want to go back to bed like I did before I worked out. I am very focused this morning; been more productive in the last 2.5 hrs that I have been in a 5 hour period lately. It’s wonderful!
Being a mother of 5 (4 at home) and working a full time job it’s hard to get any me time in. But I made myself a priority this year and make that time. If I can do it so can you! It may seem impossible, but I promise you, making yourself your #1 priority and cutting out that “me” time for yourself will change your life! Try it for a day, a week, a month. Make a habit of it! 😀 I promise you, you won’t regret it!

Avacado / Tomato / Mustard Pita

This recipe seems to be a mix of a couple different ones that I have tried with similar ingredients. I think what I have done is picked and chosen which ingredients I like from different ones I’ve tried and made it my own. I can say it is definitely delicious and pretty satisfying too!
