Caution: do not open this bag on an empty stomach.
So with my food sensitivities/allergies/intolerances (gluten, soy, dairy,legumes) , it’s rare that I find a snack that really hits the spot.
For the most part I cook at home, but sometimes I want a crunchy snack that makes me feel like a kid again. (So weak I know but I’m human and the addictions have become nostalgia! Lol)
These babies hit it outta the park…forrealsies.
They taste just like Funyuns!!! I previously thought I would never feel that yummy Funyun feeling again. Boy was I wrong.
I could go on and on. That’s how yummy they are. But I digress, if you want a yummy allergy friendly snack that tastes like the good old days…here it is.
Round of a plause for the creators these guys.
Why love coconuts?! The cold, sweet water is like nectar. So yummy and rejuvenating. I also ate the meat inside with the berries, which is way more filling than most would think. And that was my breakfast. Some might say that a breakfast needs to be more “complete”. Totally not true.
A few of the amazing benefits of young raw coconut water and meat:
1. Rich in antioxidants
2. Rich in electrolytes, hydrating power!
3. Great source of the “good fats”, the kind that your brain thrives well on (medium- chain triglycerides)
4. Supports and boosts immune functions
5. improved skin (you know that radiant glow we have sometimes…totally helps with looking alive!)
*** as a warning though, for those with sensitive digestive systems…too much coconut can cause stomach pain because of overconsumption do Lauric acid.
So as with all things, consume in moderation.
Today I wanted a smoothie bowl, so I made one with what I had.
Blend:1/2 cup of Mixed Berries
1/2 cup of Cashew Milk (your preference)
1 super ripe organic banana
1/2 scoop of Nature’s Food Plant Based Fit Protein Vanilla
1 tbs of Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter
1 palmful gluten free oats (Bob’s Red Mill)
1 sliced organic kiwi
blueberries and raspberries.
(Sit down and enjoy ,but first pat yourself on the back for being awesome.)
Happy Monday y’all!
