Today has been a great catch up day! I had Grandma lined up to watch my kindergartener while I went to a field trip. Happy day! The field trip was rained out and my son still wanted to go to Grandmas. I don’t think I’ve had this many hours in an empty house, ever! So, I got caught up on my housework, emails and scheduling. While I was ironing, which I almost never do, I watched Dr. Oz. Again, something I never do. I like Dr. Oz. He speaks my language. He talked about hair care, the benefits of fiber, the superfood quinoa, and cocoa! Besides exercise, the #1 endorphin producing food is COCOA. Not chocolate, the bitter 70% or more pure cocoa. I love this stuff!
- Lowers blood pressure
- Skin softener
- Mood booster
Try this Dr. Oz Hot Cocoa recipe!
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp raw cacao powder
1/4-1/2 tsp powdered stevia, to taste
Mix all of the ingredients together and heat on the stove over medium heat. Bring to a boil and simmer for 3 minutes.
Let cool for a few minutes and serve!
This will be my yummy winter treat when it’s cold!
Yesterday, we went to Park City to shop around. The leaves are changing and this is one of my most favorite sites to see!
This led me to think of a few favorites as of late! Number 1!!! I found a new favorite smell. I walked into Bath and Body works and immediately smelled the best thing ever!! I found a candle burning and it was called Pumpkin Pecan Waffle.
I bought the candle and the lotion. Heavenly! I need to make pumpkin pecan waffles now! Instead, I found this favorite fall recipe to try! Cream cheese filled pumpkin bread!
Lastly, and mostly because I need to pick up kids and my son needs the computer, my favorite LULU BRA!! It’s called the Top Speed bra! Love everything about it! This will be my next Lulu purchase!
I’ll be back soon to chat more about my running life and healthy eating. I’m lovin’ it! Have a happy Fall day!!
