coconut dreaminess


January 20, 2010 by Sarah S.

I’m starting my post with dessert because it was super good. I don’t know if I mentioned here already, but I found a really delicious coffee creamer made from coconut milk made by so delicious. The same company also makes a very good yogurt made from coconut as well and I tried the vanilla tonight:

With some vegan chocolate chips, of course. The stats on the yogurt are 140 calories, 6 grams fat, 2 grams fiber, and 1 protein, 6 active & live cultures + the goodness that is coconut!

Today I went for a run outside and it was cold and disgusting and it was the worst run ever. My legs felt like lead, the sidewalk was still covered in slush (where I live, you can’t tell until you’re actually there) and for some weird reason school let out at 10:30am, so there were swarms of smoking teenagers everywhere. By the way, since when do little kids smoke!? How do they buy the ciggies?! Am I that old? Anyway, back to the run, it was yuck, but I endured and came home and grumped about it for a while and then made myself a smoothie to refuel. Instead of making my usual green goddess of spirulina, I decided to try out my new Hemp protein and add in actual fruits. I blended: spirulina, hemp protein, almond milk, 1 kiwi, and half an asian pear. It was pretty good! The hemp protein isn’t exactly smooth but it was nothing like the kale smoothie I made that required heavy chewing. Pretty good. And it made me feel better.

For lunch, I upped the veggieness:

Pretty right? Beets, avocado, carrots and mixed greens. I also added some chopped mushies later, but that picture didn’t look as vivid. Is it a fact that putting avocados in paper bags makes them ripen faster? I don’t know why I think that, but I guess it works?

Today marks two weeks of vegan eating, and YES I am still loving it. I feel good, I look better (i.e. fitting into actual pants with zippers and buttons) and am excited to see what I feel/look like for my 1 month mark. A lot of my friends/family are starting weightloss programs right now to get into shape for my wedding, so assuming all goes well, we should be a hottie bunch in April!

I know it’s only Wednesday, but it kind of feels really close to the weekend. Anyone have exciting plans?

  1. Yay that you tried the hemp protein! My first was the exact same kind you bought. Took some getting used to, and you’re right that it’s not the smoothest, but now I love it, and it’s one of the cleanest, healthiest protein supplements you could buy. So there. 🙂

    Congrats on the vegan/pants-fitting progress. Vegan food only does good things for me, fo sho. I do believe that it is a fact that avos in paper bags ripen faster as well. Bananas and/or apples in the bag also help it along if I’m not mistaken.

    Love the Avos. I’m almost ready to try one of those chocolate-avocado mousses. You know, I like it. It was good. Would have been even better with a dollop of almond butter in there, but i’m trying to go easy with the calorie dense foods for now.
