Where Has It Been All My Life

Organic Coconut Milk

Where has coconut milk been all my life? For that matter, where has coconut products been my whole life? I’ve only recently jumped on the coconut train; first I started with So Delicious Coconut Milk Kefir,Β Tropical Tradition‘s coconut oil, then Artisana’s cacao bliss(not a winer but at least I tried it), next Bob’s Red Mill’s coconut flour, and now coconut milk. Addicted to coconut? I think so.

Chocolate Avocado Pudding With Coconut Milk

So so good. Since I was out of my coconut milk kefir, I subbed in 1 tablespoon coconut milk and 2 tablespoons water, and then added a tablespoon on top–holy yum! This stuff is sooo rich and delightful. And it’s vegan so I can drink the whole can, right πŸ˜‰ Next time I might omit a tablespoon of water or something, and up the cocoa a tad with my new cocoa powder. For that matter…

Where has chocolate avocado pudding been all my life? The way I eat it, you might assume I grew up with an avocado tree. Nope. In fact, I rarely eat avocado otherwise. But I discovered this over the Summer from the Runner’s World forums and haven’t looked back.

Pumpkin Oatmeal With Nutritional Yeast And Smart Balance Peanut Butter

Where has nutritional yest been all my life? This is another food I only discovered recently from food blogs! And I have to admit I was very scared at first; nutritional yeast? How could that possibly be good? Well it’s fantastic. I get mine from Whole Foods bulk bins and sprinkle it on anything and everything. It’s mostly protein and fiber, and has a pleasantly cheesy flavor; in this combo, I swear it all tastes like cheddar–yum πŸ™‚

Banana Nut Odwalla Bar

This morning the gym wouldn’t be open until 9 so I slept in until 8:30–happy weekend to me! Even better, I found a Banana Nut Odwalla Bar just lying on the ground outside my room. Score! I also found a broken alcohol bottle that I very easily could have stepped on when I woke up to use the bathroom at 5am 😦 I also snuck on my computer before hitting the gym and have to ask…

Where has Google’s gadgets been all my life? Ever since KERF started her nerd series, I’ve learned sooo much. Do you use Google tasks? It’s my new to-do list. I have anything and everything on it right now(I have a lot to do this weekend apparently).

Nature's Path Peanut Choco' Granola Bar

I ate a Nature’s Path Peanut Choco’ bar on my run today. The run was a bit boring, but had me realizing this:

Where has The Today show been all my life? More importantly, why isn’t it on on the weekend 😦 I am not a news-type person; I really hate politics and newspapers and the whole shebang. But The Today show I think has the perfect blend of news and entertainment. And it’s the only thing(along with Cartoon Network) that makes long runs on treadmills bearable.

8 Miles In 69:43

This morning wasn’t terribly long–8 miles in 69:43. It still left me wanting more from my workout, but my feet just wouldn’t take it. Instead, I moved on to a different machine.

Where has the elliptical machine been all my life? OK–it’s not that revolutionary. But in terms of cross-training, it’s easily my favorite. It really does a great job of working different parts of the legs in a low impact environment. I did 3995 strides in 30 minutes(I know–I couldn’t squeeze 5 more in? Apparently not).

Greek Yogurt With Cherry Butter And Dried Cherries, Oatmeal With Coconut Milk And Chocolate Almond Butter

Oatmeal With Coconut Milk And Chocolate Almond Butter

Where have vegan food blogs been all my life? I have a ton of blogs on my reader, and love to go through them all(even if it leaves me not enough time to comment on some of my favorite and can be a little daunting). Recently, I’ve gotten fantastic ideas from vegan blogs to feed my new coconut obsession. Jessie mentioned pouring coconut milk on her oats so I was looking forward to this. It’s a holy yum! Because of the heat, the moisture evaporates a way and what’s left is very concentrated and very coconutty. I think it could be a topping for oats all itself without nut butter! That being said…

Where has Justin’s chocolate flavors been all my life? Between the chocolate peanut butter, chocolate almond butter, and chocolate hazelnut butter, I’m obsessed. If you live in the Colorado area where these are on store shelves, I am very jealous; I ordered these with Christmas money from their website back in January. But I hear they’ll be on the East coast in March! Bring it.

Where has on-TV movies been all my life? I feel weird to admit it, but since being on campus on the weekends having limited channel choices, I’ve actually come to enjoy the made-for-TV movies I can find and actually look them up ahead of time. Craziness. Right now, Robots is on, and soon The Patriot. This is what being cooped up with a lot of work will do for ya.

I love how you have chocolate avocado and oatmeal with nutbutter and/or coconut butter every day! I’m the same with squash and parsnip…must have them every day!

I totally think you need to change your major and become a writer! You are entertaining as all get out!

Tv movies are definitely a solid way to spend a weekend. I used coconut milk in my pancakes the other day… Heaven.

I can’t get into the coconut craze. Yuck.
The Today show is on on the weekends, it’s just on a bit later. I watch it every Saturday and Sunday.
Great run!

The Today show is on during the weekend!! It’s only on for an hour on sundays but 2 hours on saturdays – I think.. – but yeah it’s on – usually about 8 or 9 a.m – not sure your time zone….
I like the coconut ice cream by so delicious….but i also like breyers’…hey it’s calcium and it’s good πŸ™‚ even after the 5th bowl…

if you or any readers like LUNA bars – they’re letting me do a giveaway on my site – i’m jealous haha πŸ˜‰

I jumped on the coconut train pretty recently as well. Coconut oil, butter, and milk are now my best friends. Glad to see that you are enjoying them as well!!

I swear my life was semi-deprived before I started discovering all these incredbile new food finds through blogworld. Thanks for the downlow on all these must-haves!

where has this weather been all my life? i can’t believe you were on the tm today! i don’t think it’ll be like this again until may hahaha πŸ˜‰

I really need to try your chocolate avocado pudding. I drool over it every time you make it

Coconut milk is the best, isn’t it? I love it in oatmeal, especially with peanut butter!

hahaha…where have many things been all my life…i really need to try nutritional yeast again…it kinda creeps me out. hahaha!

Justin’s chocolate PB and AB will be on the east coast next month? Music to my ears πŸ˜€

I have also recently jumped on the coconut train. I just bought coconut oil and artisana coconut butter, but I still haven’t tried the other things. I think it might be time to though. And I’m also a HUGE fan of The Today Show. I could watch it all morning (if I didn’t have to go to work).
