Coconut Bliss 1

Monday, January 17, 2011

Where is there to start...I had the pleasure of receiving three coupons for some Luna and Larry’s Coconut Bliss ice cream last week.  I decided to try the Mint Galactica version first.  AND boy, it was AMAZING.  I finished this ice cream in three separate sittings.  It even tasted better than regular mint ice cream.  I loved the taste of real mint and the addition of dark chocolate in the mix.  Another great aspect of their products is the fact that the ingredients are all organic.  I’ve had a hard time with finding ice cream replacements that I actually enjoy, and Coconut Bliss is so far my absolute favorite.  I plan on picking up another flavor next week so I’ll definitely be reviewing that in the near future.  For those of you who haven’t tried it….go pick some up at Whole Foods….NOW….and don’t even wait to get home to try it.  In fact, open it in the store and start eating it while you check out.  Not only is it vegan, but it is also gluten free, soy free and low glycemic.  There are a total of ten flavors of ice cream: naked almond fudge, pineapple coconut, chocolate peanut butter, naked coconut, dark chocolate, vanilla island, mint galactica, cappuccino, cherry amaretto, and chocolate hazelnut fudge.  They also carry two ice cream bar flavors: naked coconut bars and dark chocolate bars...which i've also heard are AMAZING. I plan on picking up the cappuccino flavor next, since i LOVE ice cream. 

Bring it on 2011

Happy New Year to all of my fellow veg and nonveg bloggers alike....I hope you all enjoyed your evenings festivities.  I am currently writing from Western Illinois University where my boyfriend attends school....sadly, he does not get much of a break due to his basketball season :/ Our night was not to eventful....we watched ESPN until we decided to go to bed....he has a game today :]]] Go Leathernecks!! (even though I am, and always will be a true Commodore fan at heart....what can I say? Black and Gold runs through my veins). Needless to say I won't be doing my cooking or vegan dining out for the next few days, but I will be eating super healthy....I started 2011 with a run that I had planned on being 4 miles, but it's just to cold and windy here so 4 turned into 2.5. Once my hip starts screaming I'm pretty sure that means stop.  I know everyone has set their new years resolutions, which hopefully most of us will be able to attain. I myself, have created quite a few....but I have made sure that they are at least attainable. Here it goes:
1. Lose my weight gained from being off the few months I was for surgery.
2. Run my first half marathon...thankfully the surgery will hopefully allow me to do this seeing as how my plans to do so were ruined in 2010.
3. Make this my best year for bowling, for those who don't know I'm a NCAA collegiate athlete at sport: bowling :]
4. Starting studying for the
5. Get a paid internship at a law firm this summer....hopefully I'll have the opportunity to do so.
6. Make some new friends :]
7. Write my book I've been planning on finishing...started...but definitely needs a lot of work.
8. Give back to the youth some community outreach for youth bowlers and athletes alike.
9. Make some more vegan school, in Chicago, and in the blogosphere.
10. Get more active with my church this semester....with the surgery last semester I was lacking in my spiritual self, but I really need to get back to it...i sense the emptiness.
11. Keep making and keep achieving goals....cross a few things off my bucket list too :]
Hope you all are enjoying your first day of 2011....I know I will be relaxing and doing some reading until the game tonight.

-cold in Illinois.
