Dang Coconut Chips

Hope everyone had a nice weekend….I ended up getting the stomach flu on Friday….and let me tell you it was SO


UNFUN. Beyond unfun. Horrible. Horrific. Nightmare. Barf. Gross. Gulp. NEVER AGAIN. Oh My Goodness. Luckily, I had a devoted and loving husband; understanding and caring children; and wonderful, supportive friends. And I was better in no time at all!


I woke up to these beautiful flowers from the flu. These of course put a smile on my face.

Coconut Lotion

Frequent readers of the blog know that I am royally obsessed with coconuts. See here and here and here and here. And not just to drink or eat, but also to smell. The smell is so tropical and laid back, that when I smell coconut, I instantly think of vacation. Yep, vacationing in NYC with concrete, vertical, grey, massive buildings and coconut oil. Livin the vida loca.

Coconut Obsession

Call me obsessed, but I am a sucker for anything with coconut in it. Remember this and this, well now, I have three MORE coconut products that I can’t live without! All three are delicious, flavorful, coco-nutty goodness!

Decadent, coconut, deliciousness!

These little itty bitty bars are stacked with more than just taste, as they have antioxidants, omega 3’s, fiber and plant-based protein. Amazing, right? Chia seeds are the new goji berries! Sold at Whole Foods, health food stores or online.

Favorite flavor BY FAR is coconut. YUM.

Coconut Mylk (Organic Avenue)

I love anything with coconuts. Coconut water, coconut lotion, sunscreen with a coconut smell, coconut flakes…you get the point. I am nuts for coco-nuts. And the most recent coconut obsession is creamy coconut “mylk” from Organic Avenue.


Organic Avenue is a NYC based boutique that sells organic (shocker) juices, salads, wraps, and anything else healthy and wholesome. It also features beautiful (and sustainable) packaging, catchy phrases, and delicious drinks and snacks. You walk into the store, and you want to buy everything because it all looks so healthy and delicious. And the coconut mylk is no exception.

Creamy Coconut Mylk

Creamy Coconut Mylk is a natural drink that is recommended to maintain electrolyte balance. Good for athletes — especially when consumed POST workout.

Some recent studies have suggested that coconut mylk has a number of medical benefits, including hyperlipidemic balancing. Amazing! And let me tell you, nothing tastes richer, better, complete than this Organic Avenue Coconut Mylk after a long run.


And of course, it is also a good match with Clearly Coconut Water ,which is also delicious and is a good source of hydration PRE run.

Harmless Harvest Coconut Water

I recently discovered gold. Not real gold, but a new coconut water brand. But this stuff is so pure, so real, so fresh, that it actually feels like I found a piece of gold. More like a pot of gold.

Pot of gold, aka a coconut.

I have always liked coconut water, as it tastes yummy, is hydrating and does a body good. But I have never loved it. That is, until recently, when I randomly tumbled on Harmless Harvest coconut water and I became an addict. One sip, and I was done. I needed more, my body shook for more, and I just craved it. NO JOKE.
