Since I stopped drinking soda this month, I’ve been looking for healthier, still delicious alternatives beverage wise. Going through a gallon of juice can get expensive, especially with how quickly it disappears. I never was a coffee drinker, and I’ve had to let go of my all time favorite drink, Red Bull.

Mango Madness Smoothie!

Hi Everyone, As promised here is another Breakfast Smoothie for the day!! ( or you can have it for lunch) This one is as always dairy-free, and  just fruits! Mangoes are one of my favorite Fruits and so YUMMY!!! Hope you enjoy!!! All you need is:  – 2 Mangoes –  1 Banana _ Coconut Water – A Blender ( I use my NutriBullet with 32Oz Cup) * make sure your Mangoes, Banana and Coconut water are cold, otherwise you’ll have a warm smoothie 😉 **NOTE: Mangoes may very well be the king of all fruits. They fight cancer, alkalize the body, aid in weight loss, regulate diabetes, help digestion, clean your skin, and make the perfect snack… The deadly combination of vitamin C, vitamin A and 25 different kinds of carotenoids in Mangoes keep your immune system healthy. How To:   Put Mango & Banana into your Blender and cover with Coconut water (32Oz) and BLEND for 1 minute. sprinkle some Coconut Shavings on top and ENJOY!!! thanks so much for reading hope you enjoy this awesome…

While I have wifi, I’ll update fast. These photos are a bit different, as I took them fast during my only 4 days in Toronto when I just got back from Taiwan.  I’m in Quebec right now for a French Immersion program, and I practically never have wifi (I mooch off the school library’s wifi). You guys have not left my minds though! I’ve been editing photos and thinking of updating for the past 2 weeks. Thank you for all your patience. These cookies take only a handful of ingredients to make, but always deliver. I brought them with me on the train to, uh, make some friends. I thought the food would make up for my lack of French at the time. Well, let’s just say I’ve made a lot of friends here 😉 Anyhow, they’re crunchy, fragrant and delightful served with a cup of black coffee. INGREDIENTS GROUP A 2 eggs 3/4 cup granulated sugar 2 teaspoons Earl Grey tea leaves (from 1 tea bag) GROUP B 2 cups…
