#14 Fabulous Things We Love: Coconuts!

Sunday, September 18, 2011



Coconuts are just about as fabulous as fabulous comes these days. This gift from earth has been terribly propagandized in the past. It is time to come clean and embrace this miracle nut. Coconut oil contain 50% lauric acid, sounds scary I know, but when I tell you that the only other place in the world where you can find lauric acid is mothers' milk, I am sure you will be less scared and more eager to learn more - it is this ingredient that gives coconut oil its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. It provides you with loads of energy, due to its MCTs ( medium chained fats) that are used instantly for energy and don't get stored away like other fats. Put it in your smoothie in the morning!

Also you will be excited to learn that this oil, is so stable and hardly ever turns rancid, a very scary true fact it, that most of the yellow colored oils in you kitchen ( especially the ones the in the see through containers) are already rancid when you buy them in the store, they are processed and heated before even entering your frying pan. Read this article for the whole truth, it will blow your mind, and make you want to stand on a soap box preaching to the world to use coconut oil!

#11 Fabulous Things We Love: Pita Chips Gone Vegan

Thursday, September 15, 2011

365 Everyday Value Whole Wheat with Flax & Onion Pita Chips
Let me begin by saying I am not vegan.  I don’t have the desire to be one, nor do I seek out vegan-friendly foods on the daily.  But living in Southern California, and specifically being in Los Angeles, you can’t help but being surrounded by something relating to the organic movement.  I am not too vain to admit when I’m wrong about something and these vegan friendly pita chips by Whole Foods brand 365 Everyday Value is just the thing that had me apologizing to all my vegan friends – at least for one night, that is!

Made with toasted whole wheat pita bread and flax seed, these chips are undeniably delicious and great for your health conscience side.  I had them in the onion flavor served with homemade hummus, but these can easily be enjoyed all by itself or crushed over a salad for a new twist on the crouton.  And the best part of it is that you don’t need to worry about ingesting all that processed bad stuff that causes your waistline to expand; just open up a bag and enjoy!
