I'm a 20 year old junior in college, trying to promote a healthy life style for myself and others, which can definitely be hard to do in college. In this blog, I'll experiment with recipes, blog about my own progress towards body wellness inside-and-out, and hopefully help some of you out along the way! Last summer, with a month of exercise and eating right, I lost my freshman 15. Over the past year, I have been maintaining my weight and continuing to hone my healthy cooking skills!

Introducing, the Cinnamocha! The back story behind this delicious 45 calorie chocolate-coffee drink (with 3grams of protein) that rivals a Starbucks beverage in taste is simple. While walking to the gym, it was chilly outside, and while on the elliptical, I fantasized about the remaining bit of unsweetened chocolate almond milk I had in my fridge and the packets of hot chocolate that have been sitting unused in my desk drawer. When I got back to my room, I got even more creative, and the “Cinnamocha” was born! I’m telling you, this thing is so delicious. I can’t wait to make more when it gets even colder outside! Recipe on the way!

Coconut LaCroix!

I saw an advertisement for Coconut LaCroix Sparkling Water in a SELF magazine in JUNE, and have been on the lookout for it in every grocery store I’ve frequented this summer (…and that’s a lot. I like to explore different grocery stores. It’s a weird habit. Whatever.) And I FINALLY FOUND IT at TARGET. Oh Target, I knew you were my favorite. 

I excitedly popped the tab, and took my first sip. It was DELICIOUS. I’ve always loved LaCroix, but this has got to be my favorite flavor EVER! And the coconut wasn’t overwhelming. It was refreshing! This product is new, so time will tell if they keep producing it. I hope they do!

Time will tell. But for now, my only question is, “Can I use it…in a smoothie recipe???’

We shall see, children. We shall see.
