As many of you from real life may already know, I’ve been a huge fan of Tokelau coffee, and was super happy to get to be one of their first Ambassadors - in fact before I even started in that official capacity I may have even given you a packet of Tokelau MCT coffee if we’ve hung out recently. Tokelau is my go-to for coffee on the go (and when are we not on the go) out of town … [Read more...] about Product Review: Tokelau MCT Coffee (Two Varieties)

After mentioning Space Girl Organics to a new friend on a recently flight, I was inspired to make a new (and somewhat better lit) unboxing video for today's "standard vegetable fresh" delivery. I mean... I had to unpack it to put it all in the fridge anyway, right? So Karen I hope you enjoy this (or have time to watch) but here are the goodies I received today! (And how … [Read more...] about Unboxing This Week’s Delivery from Space Girl Organics! [VIDEO]
My main arguments against planning out meals too far in advance, or buying meal plans from others are: I change my mind a lot, and my best meals (that result in shared recipes) are nearly spontaneous. Don't tell ME what to eat. I often take advantage of seasonal (read "on sale") organic foods. While I can certainly see the value in diet-specific or contest prep … [Read more...] about The Extreme Value of Delicious Delivered Organic Fruits and Vegetables With Unpacking VIDEO!

Yesterday was incredibly cool - as I got to make chocolates with my friends at Winter Park's Peterbrooke Chocolatier yet again (here's a video of when we made Year of the Dragon spicy chocolates last time). The day before, while lamenting that a certain local health food store has NOT restocked their pink peppercorn and guarana dark chocolate bar, I had a sudden moment of … [Read more...] about An Unusually Delicious Combination – Custom Chocolates with Peterbrooke Chocolatier!
As you probably already know, my Beyond Organic Founder's Pack arrived this past weekend and I had entirely too much fun unpacking it on video. Also depicted on the video was putting 2lbs of the green fed ground beef in the freezer and one in the refrigerator. Overnight the package of ground beef in the fridge thawed nicely right in time for lunch. Its perfectly square … [Read more...] about Beyond Organic Promo Sliders – AKA Two Bite Burgers
Just got back from the Beyond Organic Founders Conference - really feeling like quite the road warrior this month, as I will have spent over 1.5x what I pay in rent for an entire month on hotel rooms for the past week. LOL. Did spend one night at home - was there for about 12hrs - long enough to sleep, take a bath, get caught up on a few online tasks and wash a load of … [Read more...] about Beyond Organic Founders Conference
1 Organic Coconut Flour - 2.2 lbs. I can't say enough great things about this coconut flour - seriously... this is the key ingredient in so many of my favorite recipes from Primal Blueprint and the lynchpin in so many of my own variants and originals. I've tried other brands of coconut flour and have only been disappointed, sorry, Bob's Red Mill, still love you … [Read more...] about Tropical Traditions Coconut Flour
This is really really nice high quality canned salmon - normally I like to buy red coho salmon - but was talked into trying this by a friend of mine who owns a local independent health food store. He was right - this is great stuff. Granted it is very very natural, so if you are squeamish about things like skin and bones in your canned salmon you may wish to give it a pass. … [Read more...] about Miramonte Alaskan Pink Salmon 7.5 OZ
Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil This is one of those products that once you start using it, you find that you use it EVERY DAY. And its actually the only cooking oil I have in the pantry at the moment (dark sesame oil doesn't count - that's a flavoring additive). I was originally introduced to Tropical Traditions by an older friend from the dog park who … [Read more...] about Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil
