It all started with COCONUTS!

It is Tuesday evening and I am relaxing with my furry children enjoying the cool breeze outside. It is a great day to be alive. I think we forget to be thankful and appreciative for just being able to wake up and smell the air, see the sky, to just be alive. We take a lot for granted so I really try to make every effort to be thankful and be in the moment. Ok I am already off on a tangent!

Lets get to the real topic, “Coconuts” which I think is probably one of my favorite fruits or drupes in the entire world. Just in case you were wondering a drupe is a fruit with a hard stony covering enclosing the seed (like a peach or olive) and comes from the wordΒ drupaΒ meaning overripe olive.

Last night I was home and it occurred to me that I haven’t baked in a very long time. So I figured I would put my apron on and surprise my husband. I was debating between brownies and blueberry banana bread. Of course I could not decide so I went with both! πŸ™‚

As much as these may look unhealthy they are 100% healthy and guilt free. YAY!! After filling my house with the amazing smell of baked blueberry banana bread and brownies and having them approved by my mom and husband, I knew I had to share. I hope you enjoy these yummy treats!!

All the ingredients I used were organic. Remember always have fun especially when baking yummy goodness and feel free to make any substitutions you would like!! Continue reading

I have actually been contemplating starting a blog for that last year. I know procrastination at its finest. Honestly when it comes to the things I write, I am a very private person and I do not want to be judged. I mean, that is a normal human reaction, right? I finally got the (for lack of a better word) BALLS to start today. Here is why…

I have been on my own personal journey to living a holistic lifestyle for the past two and half years. I would love to say it has been the easiest thing ever but that would be me giving you all a bunch of bull s#$@. To be frank, it has been one of the hardest things for me. Well let me restate that, there are some things that I was able to transition into very quickly and others that I am still working on. I will get into more of my journey and share my successes and my failures as I continue to post. I don’t want to scare anyone away and give you my whole life story all at once. Continue reading
