First off- Hi!! Happy Friday!!

Secondly- How about that interview with Shannon Coates yesterday? ummm, ya she is all sorts of amazing!

Thirdly…. I am a bit of a Shannon stalker now at I thought that the landscape of these 2 pictures of her and I looked rather similar… (maybe I’m just searching for similarities, haha)

She also talked about how much she likes oatmeal (with protein plus bites), well, I haven’t tried that- but 2 days ago I did make oatmeal for breakfast (with almonds and blueberries)

Actually, lately I have been trying to eat more protein, I recently made another fresh batch of almond butter! yummy

This morning for breakfast was my homemade almond butter, Ezekiel toast and banana…

almond butter, toast and banana
THEN, I made these wicked Vegan Coconut Balls!! coconut vegan macaroons, rawI got the recipe here.

You’ll need:

1.5 cups shredded coconut
3/4 c maple syrup (or agave nectar)
3/4 c cocoa powder
Dash Vanilla Extract
1/4 c coconut oil (optional)

SIDE NOTE: Speaking of getting more protein, have you looked at how much protein coco powder has? 26g per 100g! Also 140% of your daily Iron intake and 70% of your Vitamin A intake…. wowzers!

Add in all your ingredients

Mix em up

This recipe is to easy!! Once it’s mixed up- roll them into balls, and put em in your freezer

They were a million times better than I ever thought they would be… SOOOOO GOOOOOD!!

In other news…I went to get a coffee this morning and I SAW HIM… by him… I mean this guy who I often spot swimming WAAAAY out in the ocean…

If I had a fancy zoom lense you would be able to see better… isn’t that crazy? I see him out there all the time.. Wouldn’t it be insanely cold right now? He wears a wetsuit, but still. I am determined to get this guys story some day (I have seen him when he leaves the water too…)

I was surprised he isn’t half man/half fish…

haha… Maybe there is a mermaid out there he is friends with…. Or maybe is an athletic superstar and that is just part of his morning workout… RIGHT NOW…IT IS A MYSTERY..

Well, thanks for stopping by! Have an amazing weekend!!!

Talk real soon!!

    I don’t know about the water there, but here even though it’s still winter, and cold, the water is warmer than you think. When I go in with my wet suit it’s awesome, but then coming out SUUUCKS!!
