Pineapple Wheatgrass Shots

I had a great idea to incorporate wheatgrass shots into my diet. The plan was to start the day with a couple of wheatgrass shots and reap the benefits.  Boost of energy, agile mind, and improved digestion to name a few. I bought 6 oz of wheatgrass, juiced it, removed the frothy top layer and threw the first shot down my throat. Now, I was aware that wheatgrass has a bitter after taste, but my oh my, my taste buds were not ready for that kind of bitter – I just couldn’t willingly chuck another shot down my throat. Thus pineapple wheatgrass shots were born, and now my preferred method of imbibing wheatgrass.

Coconut Oatmeal

I love oatmeal but sadly it doesn’t love me so much. A bowl of oatmeal gives me major heartburn, it’s so frustrating. It doesn’t matter what base I use to make my oatmeal – water, milk, almond milk, after every bowl I get that familiar burning in my chest, it sucks. To find relief I have to chug down antacids, otherwise hours pass before I get relief. Hence today’s recipe, coconut oatmeal. It is 1 part oats to 1 part dried coconut chips, and a saving grace to my digestive system.

Imagine you and your partner reading the paper, or a book, or magazine on your handheld devices, sipping your favorite hot beverages and sinking your teeth into flaky pastry topped with fresh fruit. What a great way to start the day – right? Today’s recipe is a simple fruit tart, it’s ideal for an easy morning that doesn’t require much movement for an hour our two. It takes very little effort to make, and I’m certain it will be a regular feature when you have the luxury of time.

No need to panic about the pastry, I didn’t make it from scratch. I just bought a packet of pre-made frozen puff pastry. All I had to do was defrost as directed. So easy.
