What I Learned The Week The Music Played

Posted Mar 04 2010 10:09pm
  • If I am doing 8 things at once, I will get nothing done.
  • Urges lessen over time if you don’t give into them .
  • When someone tells you that you are incapable of something, you have the choice to either prove them right or prove them wrong.
  • Getting your email account hacked into means that your inbox will be spammed by zillions of offers of great deals on tuition fees/Viagra/insurance. Totally legit, I’m sure ;)
  • There is no smooth way to transition a post from heavy emotional stuff to the awesome snack you just ate.

  • There is a fine line between a reason and an excuse.
  • Nothing makes me feel more like a child than wiggling my arms to get out of my coat sleeves.
  • There is a song for every thought, feeling and occasion .
  • If it wasn’t for Twitter trending topics and blogs, I would be very out-of-the-loop when it comes to current affairs.
  • The ONLY way to conquer a fear is to face it head-on.
  • Time starts to speed up as you get older (it’s MARCH!)
  • No matter how alone you feel, there is always somebody out there who is going through/has been through the exact same thing.

Product Review

I received some coconut milk from Kara to sample.

From the website:

Made with freshly pressed coconut milk and with total fat and calcium levels matched to semi-skimmed milk, it’s not surprising to discover just how much like milk Kara Original + Calcium tastes.

Ideal for: breakfast cereals, tea or coffee, sweet or savoury cooking , on its own as a refreshing cold drink – 250ml provides 37.5% of the RDA of calcium.

Sounds good, right? I rely on dairy products a lot for protein though and this is lacking in that department. Other than that, it has a great nutritional profile. I soaked 1.5 portions of [me] and Goji cereal in 1/2 cup milk overnight (you can read the review and ingredients of my cereal mix here ), and added some sliced banana this morning.

Verdict: It didn’t taste anywhere near as ‘coconutty’ as I was hoping for, and the texture is far from the creaminess I like with milk. But, it tasted good and was really refreshing. I thought it might be too sweet (I like flavoured milk, but not sweetened) but it was perfect for cereal. I tried it in a cup of tea and the fruit sweetener gave it an odd taste, but as a cereal mix-in, was delish :)

 

I am looking forward to using it for some more creations, and I am going to hunt down the coconut spread that they make (after months of seeing other bloggers eating delicious creations with Artisana Coconut Butter !)

Questions:

  1. What is your favourite coconut flavoured food/drink? Nothing beats fresh coconut water and pulp straight out of the shell, in my opinion. Though I also love pineapple coconut muffins.
  2. What song is in your head right now? No Air (the Glee version) has been in my head for days!
