You're As Sweet As Pie

Bulletproof The Day Away ;) 

I’ll be keeping this post short and sweet. One thing that gets me through the workday is some bulletproof coffee. I am obsessed. Super easy to make too.

What you’ll need: 

  • 2 cups of hot freshly brewed coffee 
  • 2 tbsp of grass fed butter or ghee 
  • 2 tbsp of organic coconut oil or MCT oil 
  • 1/2 tsp of organic cinnamon powder or cacao powder (optional) I didn’t add any but I’m used to not having my coffee too sweet in the mornings either

I used a mocha blend of coffee grounds so that helped it as well. And I also got this recipe from Dr. Mark Hyman. He posts awesome material! 

All you gotta do is….. Put it all in a blender till smooth. I also added some ice. Then it’s ready to serve! Enjoy xx

Oye, Pollo Tropical is on Fire

Happy Monday y’all. Hope you had a great weekend. I already wish it was Friday again. Weekends go by too quickly!

I had the opportunity to partner up with Pollo Tropical this weekend to help promote their new location here in Largo, FL. Their grand opening was this past Friday which unfortunately I could not attend because of work but I did get to order some food from Pollo. Can’t complain on that part.

What did I get is the next question. Well I had gotten the guava pulled pork sandwich, plantains and guava bar. Since I’m trying my best to clean my gut, I skipped the bread and guava bar and gave the bar to my mom. She said it was tasty though.

I love guava and I thought it was interesting how guava and pork were combined and it was pretty good. I can’t wait to order it again. It was the perfect combination of sweet and savory.

The plantains were soooo yummy. That has been one of my favorite things to eat since I was a child. Yes, I am Hispanic so don’t let this blonde hair fool ya 😉

If you are local and haven’t been to Pollo Tropical or just need to go back, go check out their new spot in Largo. Tell them Lauren sent you!
