Sloth Propeller

“Sloth Propeller” Recipe – Naturally Sweet Bulletproof Style Coffee

Aaaah coffee! It is to me the smell of a very good Saturday morning (because I pretty much only drink coffee on Saturdays or sometimes Sundays). 

I grew up drinking it (because, of course it’s a staple in any Colombian household!) and had my first taste when I was still a wee thing. My dad has always liked it strong topped off with a little whole milk. But me, I like it cafe con leche style: thick, creamy and sweet. But alas, that is not a health promoting option 🙁 Unless…

Unless you do it my way! Enter “Sloth Propeller”…

Jackpot Jell-O Recipe: A Kid Food that Adults Should be Eating Too!

I love an artfully plated meal just as much as the next foodie, but I also have a soft spot in my heart for the “everything-but-the-kitchen-sink” sort of dishes…yogurt and (a plethora of) toppings or burrito bowls, you know, that sort of thing. But yogurt and beans don’t necessarily settle well with many of us in the “just eat real food” camp, so I came up with this recipe. By the way, when I say Jell-O, and refer to all of it’s health benefits, I’m NOT referring to the boxed brand. As far as I’m concerned, that’s not “Real Food” because it’s full of additives like: artificial flavors, food coloring and more junk plus the quality of the gelatin is not up to par if you’re looking to boost your protein intake and improve your hair, skin, nails and so so so much more. Curious yet? Keep reading to find out why it’s so much more than just a “kid food” and which brands you SHOULD be buying to improve your health and wellness.

Mango Sorbet Recipe

Some days you crave something sweet. And not in the “I’m-a-sugar-addict” kind of way, simply in the “it’s-a-hot-summer-day-and-I’d-like-something-cold-and-refreshing” kind of way. Sure, ice cream could satisfy the craving, but then again most of the store bought sweetness is chalk full of refined sugar and rBGH dairy…not to mention it’s dairy and, well, that is often an issue for some of us.

OR, maybe you’re sitting down to watch an episode of The Flash with your husband who’s chowing down on (home-made) popcorn,but you don’t like popcorn…but you also want an equally tasty telly-snack that won’t give you muffin-top. Anybody? Anybody?! Just me? OK. Moving on…READ MORE

Zesty Chicken Bowl Recipe (Former Taco Bell Classic Turned CTW Approved!)

I have something to confess. I used to eat Taco Bell. Yes the EAT. MOVE. THINK. girl used to thoroughly enjoy herself a disgustingly delicious Grilled Stuffed Burrito during her days as a U of M undergrad (Go Blue!). And, a lifetime ago, so did my hubs. The Zesty Chicken Bowl was to him (now retired from the menu) what the Grilled Stuffed Burrito once was to me. READ MORE
