Innovation & Motivation

16 Aug

Everyone hits a rough patch in life at some point…and this past month I hit it.  Fortunately I’m hanging in there and trying to look on the bright side of things and stay true to what my Grandfather always said “keep smiling”.  Well it’s been a few days but Happy Thursday everyone! If you follow me on instragram you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been posting a few new recipe ideas so I will start with these delicious little concoctions..

Coconutty Peanut Chia Porridge 

This can be used as a low-carb alternative to oatmeal, a snack, dessert…whatever it’s damn good!

Ingredients 

  • 2 tbs coconut flour
  • 2 tbs PB2
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp stevia
  • 1 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk (may need more or less depending on the consistency you like)
  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl and let set in fridge overnight

After setting in the fridge overnight it should be creamy and resemble a custard. I popped mine in the freezer for about 20 min and topped it with some blueberries.. it was cold and kind of reminded me of ice cream..delicious!

Cookie Dough Coconut Butter

Beware this is highly addictive..

I didn’t really measure ingredients out on this one but I’ll give you my best shot.

Ingredients

  • 1 bag of lets do organic shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tbs coconut oil
  • 1 cup of cocoa roasted almonds
  • 1 tsp stevia
  1. Add the coconut to a food processor and process until fine.
  2. Add coconut oil, almonds, and stevia.
  3. Processes until creamy and smooth
  4. This may take a while depending on your food processor.. 10-20 minutes

Unfortunately I haven’t gotten a polar ft watch yet..but I have discovered some awesome apps that do the trick in a pinch.  Like this one.. gps + pedometer ultimate.. you enter your weight, height and measurements and it seems to be tracking pretty well but I still need that Polar watch!!

It’s happening within the next week!

And then there’s Nike Training Club which has a ton of awesome workouts..cardio, toning and strength. Perfect if you don’t have access to a gym or just want to get a good workout in at home.

 These workouts definitely work up a good sweat!

Only you have the power to make yourself the happiest you can be.

Have an awesome weekend everyone! 😀

  • 2 TBS coconut flour (sifted)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1-2 packets of stevia
  • 2 egg whites
