Wednesday was officially the highest traffic day on my blog EVER. I don’t know where you are all coming from, but I am so grateful that you have chosen to check out my blog and follow me! You guys rock!
Can you see that? 162 Visitors and 498 Views?!?!
You like me! You really, really like me!
Needless to say,
I just had to get my Newtons in there. I love them so much!
I was so excited about my day that I accidentally ran 4 miles at an 8:58 average pace.
I checked the mail and I got TWO packages from TWO different companies to sample and blog about.
One came from Nativas Naturals;
I have really wanted to try chia seeds in my morning oatmeal and actually contemplated buying some the other day at the New Frontiers Market here in SLO, but I didn’t. I am so glad I didn’t! Because now I have an ENTIRE bag of it! I am also trying to stay really hydrated before my half, so the Powdered Coconut Water is totally going to come in handy!
I also received this box,
from Bestowed Box!
I am officially Rather Be Runnin’!!
I have also been wanting to try coconut butter, so I grabbed the pouch from the Bestowed Box and went to town!
I went to Chocolate Covered Katie for an awesome, healthy, chocolatey way to use this coconut butter. As you can see, I found just the recipe.
I decided to make her Sugar-Free Chocolate Fudge.
It was awesome.
Here is her recipe, in case you want to try it too!
Sugar-Free Chocolate Fudge
- 1/2 cup coconut butter or Homemade Coconut Butter. (120g)
- 1 large, very-ripe banana (160g) (For a banana-free version, just use 2/3 cup more coconut butter.)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
- scant 1/8 tsp salt
- sweetener of choice, to taste (Sweeteners that work well in this recipe include: nunaturals vanilla stevia drops, powdered sugar, or even a liquid sweetener such as pure maple syrup. If a using a super-ripe banana, you might not need any added sweetener, depending on your tastebuds.)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened or dutch cocoa powder (20g)
- optional: 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Make sure your coconut butter is melted before use. Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Then smooth the fudge into a container or candy molds. (Plastic containers work well, because you can pop the fudge right out.) Place in the fridge for a few hours, or freeze for a few minutes. You can freeze it for longer periods of time; just be sure to thaw at least 15-20 minutes prior to eating.
I finished the evening,
listening to the Dodgers vs. Giants baseball game (although the Dodgers lost).
I am a HUGE Dodger fan!
Yesterday was a great day.
How was your Wednesday? I hope it was as wonderful as mine. :o)
