Hey gang, so Evelyn and I enjoyed some yoga time together this morning which was very refreshing. Though Evelyn puts me to shame, kids are so darn flexible (tiny bit jealous) but its really nice being able to do this with her. Good mommy and daughter time after daddy goes to work.
After our good long yoga session, we went on a walk, it’s very cold out but the scenery is so serene. Totally feeling vamped right now from it and I now Evelyn is too. Its nice to get out and some get fresh air so to speak.
Been snacking on these beauties
I really enjoy putting up my wellness posts because I, myself, do a lot of research into the topic and learn a few new things too. Such as this energy drink I am going to be sharing with you today! I like to think it’s an upgraded energy drink from my energy drink post.
Anyways, I am feeling fabulous from it and I know a part of it is from my wonderful outing with my daughter and this awesome energy drink. I mean, I feel so accomplished already and it’s only 9am.. I have a lot of errands to run today too so I am happy I got my calmness in this morning! Hopefully it will continue throughout the day!
We have to go to town and get decorations. Our daughter is having a birthday here soon so time to whip out the balloons and go crazy. Evelyn would be exuberant just to see a balloon, or open an empty cardboard box, haha it’s a major plus to her that she gets goodies too!
We are trying something new this year, we are going to be taking her to an animal park. Evelyn loves animals so much, she loves reading books about them, holding her hand out to help them, and cuddling with our animals here at the house. So I think taking her to a place where she can interact with animals she doesn’t see everyday would really make her birthday that much special. Also it’s nice because I want this to be her “big” present so to speak. I think those with children can understand that after Christmas your house is full of toys and you sort of let a silent curse every time you accidently step on a lego. Just sayin.
So to make this exciting homemade energy fuel, it takes little time and the ingredients already in the cupboard.
Mix coconut oil, and chia seeds together. Simply put together 1 tbsp of each in a glass of water and consume 30 minutes prior to exercise or to start your day off right! I suggest heating up your coconut oil before putting it your water and drinking immediately.
Side note: Ya like my prego jar? I like to recycle our own glass jars into storing food (salad, dips, veggies) or use them for drinking!
I didn’t take a picture of final outcome because I didn’t have time literally. I quickly found out it clumped really fast and downed it… so sorry guys, you will see once you make it!
I saw a homemade energy drink similar to this and they also added raw honey to it, an idea if you aren’t vegan!
Well I hope everyones week is treating them well, time is going by way too quick….it’s almost March and I feel like we just had Christmas the other day!Let me know what you think of the energy drink!
I have a fun recipe coming up for next time!
