I received this recipe from a great friend who has been a rock in my life through the best and the worst times. Without fail, she has given the shirt off her back (literally sometimes) and taught me many lessons on being introspective and growing as a person.
This recipe is full of healthy fats, has zero grams of sugar (unless you drizzle honey or maple syrup on top) and gives you the satiation of having something sweet without the extra BS that does your body no good. Enjoy!
- water / 2 cups
- unsweetened, shredded coconut / 1 cup
- Chia seeds / 1/3 cup
- vanilla or almond extract / 2 tbsp
- sea salt / 1 tsp
- cinnamon / 2 tbsp
- optional: fruit, honey, maple, stevia / to your liking
1. Bring 2 cups of water to a simmer (not a full boil)
2. Blend shredded coconut and hot water together in blender (be careful that the water is not too hot or the cover may try to come off)
3. Pour all into a glass container
4. Stir in Chia seeds, cinnamon, vanilla, sea salt
5. Add fruit or any sweetener
6. Let sit overnight or at least 5 hours
Drizzle with berries, maple syrup or honey for extra sweetness. But I'm sure you are sweet enough already ;)

"It's like, it's like your rib cage is a jail cell, holding all that love in. So, I want you to take your fist, take your fist, and grab your heart and hold it in the air, hold that love in the air and open your fingers, one at a time if you need to, and let that love out. " #loveart

I don't think I have ever felt as at home as as I do here. I think back on all of the cities, the apartments and places I have lived. I used come back from California wishing that I lived there. This time I came back craving these mountains and this awesome,alive community. Home is where your heart is. Mine really is here. #colorado #grassaintgreener #wineaintsweeter #welcomehomehunny
Life, out of the depths, will clarify things for you only if you wish to see your challenges as an opportunity of growth. Sometimes we need rain. #itstimetogrowtoday

The Hollywood shows were amazing. Unfortunately there was a threat in the middle of the first show that had my heart in my throat. The interesting thing as I reflect was that my fear was actually for @bobweir And @deadandcompany . And my fellow neighbors. I truly felt it for my life last. These lessons are learned through the message of this music. Despite it all, the energy from this crowd was peaceful and alive. I am so thankful for finding this music and for my two friends who helped me get there. #pleasespreadpeace #wavethatflagwaveitwideandhigh #grateful ✌️
I finally made it home #homeiswherethedeadis #grateful
