Last Week's Eats

Last week I tried to remember to take pictures of everything I ate but it was definitely hard. Basically, I photographed breakfast and lunch from Wednesday and Thursday...blah. But that did include lunch at Clark's and it was delicious!

And here it is...
Wednesday breekie... fruit and coffee
Wednesday's lunch was tuna salad... apologies for the unattractive photo.

Thursday's breakfast smoothie + some healthy reading
Thursday was lunch at Clark's

Fresh new haircut!
Habanero  Blood Orange White Mule

Yum yum
Love the anchor + gold flatware
Oops... I started eating. Lobster Frittata.


Strawbery Cupcakes with Coconut Whipped Cream Frosting (+ a blog annoucement!)

Hi there! I know I have been posting very seldom, but as I have shared with you before I have been struggling to find topics for each post. While I love all the things I have shared with you sometimes the words just don't flow easily. But finally I feel like I have found the direction of my blog.

I have always been a self-proclaimed foodie and recently I have had a strong desire to eat better and improve my overall health. With my blog I want to share with you my journey in adopting a healthier lifestyle with a focus on food.

Even though others might think it's weird, I love knowing what people have eaten throughout the day. Not only am I just curious but it is a great way to get ideas for new meals. So I will be sharing with you what I have been eating (although this might take a while, we know how I am with taking pictures... ) as well as recipes and any other attempts at healthy living.

But don't worry, being a foodie means that I love all food so you can still expect to see plenty of sweets and treats. In fact here is a recipe I used a week ago when I was craving something sweet.

I doubled this Strawberry Shortcake recipe from Chocolate-Covered Katie, so J and I didn't have to share. And I topped it with Whipped Coconut Cream (recipe below), a delicious diary free topping.

Remember it's just about moderation!

I definitely need to work on my food photography.

Whipped Coconut Cream

1 15oz can of full fat coconut milk
1 tsp. maple syrup
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • Chill can of coconut milk in fridge in overnight.
  • Flip can of coconut milk and open from the bottom.
  • Pour liquid into separate container (You will not use this but can save it for other uses).
  • Scoop remaining cream into a large bowl or bowl of stand mixer.
  • Whip until fluffy.
  • Add maple syrup and vanilla extract.
Serve like regular whipped cream and enjoy!
