Coconut Bowls {Recipe}

Hello there!  I’ve got a short, sweet and fun recipe for you today.  These coconut bowls are creamy and delicious and make you feel totally decadent first thing in the morning.  It looks way harder than it actually is to make so you if you have some guests stopping by for a brunch, I highly recommend these!

The trick to these babies is to find pre-cut coconuts.  Slicing a coconut is no easy feat so if you can get these at the grocery store, I highly recommend doing that.  However, even if you can’t buy a pre-cut coconut, you can cut one yourself in under 2 minutes with just a hammer and screw driver!  Check out this video for the how-to!

3 Healthy Recipes

Hello and Happy Friday!  I had some weirdness going on with the blog due to a plugin I installed this week. If you had trouble seeing my posts or seeing them in the right order, don’t fret,  I’ve fixed the problem!  Man, there are always so many tech issues when you have a blog.  I feel like I should have earned a second degree in technology after running this blog for about 4.5 years!

Onto the good stuff today…what I have been earning a degree in (well, really a certificate) is nutrition.  I’m so excited to share more of my knowledge with you and I hope there will be a lot of interesting posts to come.  Building on my knowledge, this week had some really winners in the kitchen.  These recipes looked delicious, tasted fabulous and were healthy to boot!

This salad is one of my all-time favorites–the perfect blend of fruity and light.

Caprese Zoodles

These Caprese Zoodles are the perfect veggie substitution for pasta.  All the deliciousness but with tons more veggies!

Hello!  Happy Wednesday!  For some reason this week I keep thinking it is way later in the week than it actually is.  For example, yesterday I thought it was Thursday!?!  I have had a bad cold this week and haven’t been sleeping great so I’m going to blame it on that!  

I’ve been trying to kick this cold thing in the booty and I’m all about using natural remedies if you can but to be honest, it can be hard to figure out what works and what doesn’t.  For instance, the whole vitamin C thing is apparently not so effective.  But, I have heard that garlic is great for your immune system, so, of course, I don’t need to be asked twice to load up on it.  Honey, aren’t you glad!?

Caprese Zoodles

For Christmas this year I got a spiralizer attachment for my KitchenAid, which is amazing because I don’t really bake and my beautiful bright pink KitchenAid has been sitting on the counter gathering dust.  Well, this spiralizer attachment has changed my life.  Recently, I decided to give it a go and make Caprese Zoodles, which, if you make them my way, have a ton of garlic.
