RECIPE: The perfect bulletproof coffee

I remember when I started hearing about the "bullet-proof coffee" craze. I had no idea what it was or what was in it, but I had heard it had good health benefits and so I wanted to try it! After searching online, I found a bunch of complicated recipes with ingredients i'm not exactly sure I wanted to drink with my coffee! I've tried numerous different recipes but I've finally found my perfect cup o' joe! My recipe is simple and allows for some experimentation if you want to get even more fancy with it.

Also, I do NOT drink bullet-proof coffee as my entire breakfast and I suggest you don't either! Breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day and so making sure you eat with your coffee is crucial. It will also make sure the coffee isn't too hard on your stomach!

Lastly, I want to add that I do NOT support the diet and lifestyle that was made around this drink. I am not a supporter of a heavy fat diet! I simply love the taste of this decadent drink and believe I have been able to come up with a recipe that is yummy, nutritious, and gets your brain goin'! 

Soooooo... here goes! 

What you need:

- blender

-8-10oz of hot coffee

- 1 tbsp Organic Coconut Oil

-1-1/2 tsp Blue Agave

- 1 tsp Organic, pasture-raised Ghee

- 1 tsp- Your superfood of choice! This is where the experimentation comes in. I LOVE putting Moon Juice's "Sex Dust" into my coffee because it helps with regulating and balancing women's hormones! I know many other people that put in collagen, amino acids, and many other things but I have found that this powder not only makes my coffee taste yummy (think, chocolate) but it really gives me energy and gets my brain going so I can have a productive morning! 

All you have to do to make the yummiest cup of joe is to put all of the ingredients in a blender or NutriBullet  and blend for 15 seconds! What will come out is a frothy, rich, decadent cup of coffee that is, in my opinion, guilt-free!

 

 

Country girls skip to the City

Denise is my neighbor and we became fast friends once Danny and I moved into our little beach apartment. We have similar interests and both love exploring new places and documenting them on camera! She asked me last minute if I wanted to drive to town with her on a Wednesday afternoon and I said YES! 

You see, we live in the country. We are surrounded by beaches and farms and wide open land, with little development. I love where I live. I love the small-town vibe but sometimes my heart needs the hustling and bustling of a city to get my creative juices flowing. We had the absolute BEST afternoon filled with coffee, shopping, and lots of laughs. Our day was a definite reminder for me that sometimes it's best to put the to-do lists aside and listen to your heart. 

PS- I edited all of these photos in Lightroom with the new Our Good Adventure Presets! Let me tell you, they are amazing and they were made by the sweetest photographer, Heather Goodman! If you are a fellow creative, check them out! x
