Strawberry Coconut Milk

Standard

I decided to try a spin on the homemade Coconut Milk that I made yesterday, and the results were fairly tasty. Next time I would add 1 more cup of strawberries, but otherwise, this was good!

Time to Detox!

Standard

Today we took a little trip to the city and found some items I can’t get here where we live, which also happened to be things on the detox list from the movie Hungry for Change. You can see my blog post about it here to get the complete list.  🙂

I was so excited to finally get my hands on some Chia seeds, as well as some Aloe Vera Juice! I’ve already delved into the chia seeds (which surprisingly have no taste and are not that crunchy either), and will be downing some of the aloe vera juice soon too.

I also picked up some Coconut Butter, which in essence is VERY similar to coconut oil. I probably could’ve done with it, since I already had the coconut oil here, but I didn’t realize how closely they resembled each other until after I had purchased and tried it. I can see the benefit of having the coconut butter though, for certain dishes that require a bit more texture or consistency.

Here’s a picture of my mini haul.

I nearly picked up a can of coconut milk too, but I can get that for less here where I live, so I waited.

I’m really looking forward to starting my detox full throttle tomorrow. I am trying to ease my body into today a bit, before going full tilt.

Good luck to everyone doing a detox! It’ll be interesting to see how I feel after completing it.
