Nutty for coconuts

Posted Sep 11 2009 2:22pm

Here we are at yet another Monday. This Monday is particularly special for me because it marks my last full school-day Monday of my year. YAHOOO!!! I am so anxious to get to this week over with and then it will be smooth sailing. Finals will be next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday…but I’ve got it all under control. :D I actually don’t mind finals week because they are super short school days and I’m out before noon.

Speaking of noon, that is the time today that I had my 3rd acupuncture appointment. It is going really well! I have gotten past the initial nervousness and uneasy feelings from the needles and now I just go in, my doc puts the needles in, and I get to take a nap! I have been researching all the benefits of acupuncture and it really is amazing! I love the whole natural holistic approach that it has. And I’ve got to admit.. I feel better. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this will be the cure for my constant sickness and allergy problems!!

Here’s a look at my artistic breakfast from this morning:

The overnight mixture was my regular mix of 1/2 cup oats, 3 tbsp of almond milk, 1 scoop protein powder, 1/2 mashed banana, lots of cinnamon. Then I topped it with an assortment of blueberries, banana slices, shredded coconut, and Mighty Maple. SOOOO GOOD!

Since I had that appointment at noon, I got to come home for lunch and whip up something real quick:

Sandwich time!

AND my first JamFrakas bar, thanks to Meg! This was so cute and delicious. I would definitely buy these again…or anything Larabar for that matter. ;)

After school I had planned on doing Jillian’s 30 Day Shred but I was darn tired…so I listened to my body and I took a nap!

When I woke up, I figured it was time for some snackage:

I really wanted to make sure I saved room for a very special dessert that I bought today…

COCONUT ICECREAM!!!!

You have no idea how excited I was when I found this stuff. Being the ice cream fanatic that I am, I knew I had to try this stuff.

It is vegan and organic…and contains a good dose of healthy coconut fat.

Pure. Bliss. Enough said.

I’ve always said, there is no better way to end the day than with ice cream. :)

Now, since I didn’t get any exercise in this afternoon, I’m going to go for a walk with my doggie and my mom. Have a great night everybody!

Question: What is your favorite healthy dessert?
