Better late than never you guys! 🙂 Happy Friday – Happy Weekend!
It’s been a busy week over here. I am loving having some structure back to my eating (and working out!) But it is a LOT of work prepping all your meals AND recording it all in myfitnesspal. Lots of work. Kudos to the people that have been doing this day in, day out, indefinitely.
So the main thing I want to share with you guys is my new discovery that I am SUPER stoked about. OMG. I can’t quite express the amount of excitement in a way for you guys to understand. haha
The first thing is a delicious cooler that I found while I was in one of my accounts yesterday. It’s called Coco Frio and it’s rockin my world right now!
This stuff is FAB! I am typically not a coolers fan. I’m not much for hard liquor unless it’s a well made margarita (LOVE me a margie every now and again!) But other than that, I’ve just never been a cocktail/cooler fan. That said, since I’ve been trying to clean up my diet and pay a little bit more attention to how much of everything I’m consuming, I appreciate these for how clean they are. Super simple ingredients: fresh young coconut water, lime, and small batch, triple distilled vodka from right here in BC (the Okanagan actually). I was speaking with the founders today (Who are lovely by the way!) and they mentioned they have sent the product out for testing (for calories, sugars etc) but have not yet received the results. Once they do, they’ll be posted for all to see on their Instagram + Twitter – which I also appreciate! No secrets!
Anyway, thanks you guys for making a delicious bevie I can get behind (other than my beloved Rock Creek Ciders of course! ;))
Since it’s Friday Faves day, (and I usually share a few things!) I do have a couple other things to mention but they’re not quite as exciting as Coco Frio! haha
Okay next. It’s pretty much a vegetarian/vegan STAPLE. Nutritional Yeast!
Is this a weird/random thing to feature in a blog post…? Maybe! But for those of you that haven’t used it yet… you’re MISSING OUT!
Seriously you guys. A serving of this (1/4 cup) = 8g protein * 5g carb * 3g fibre * less than 1g fat.
It’s got a cheesey like taste and it really makes everything delicious! I add it daily to SOMETHING. Whether it be my tofu scramble, stir fry, salad dressing, or pop corn! It makes everything better! AND… added bonus! It is high in B12! Winning!
LASTLY – I would be remiss if I FAILED to mention the FIRST PLACE BlueJays right now. After all, I am an Ontario girl.
Now their game tonight was unfortunate… but they’re having a stellar season (knock on wood), despite missing 3 of their key players tonight (Tulo, Donaldson and Superman aka Pillar).
Last year, the season came to a devastating end, and I really hope that won’t be the case this year. We’re going to be heading to a game in September when we’re home for my sister in laws wedding and I can’t WAIT! Bring us a World Series this year, boys! First one in over 20 years!!!!
That’s all for today, folks! Enjoy the weekend. Stay hydrated! It’s gonna be stinkin hot out there!
