    10 Summer Smoothies

    Looking for a refreshing summer smoothie that doesn’t involve breaking the bank with Smoothie King or a local smoothie shop? I’ve got you covered with a collection of 10 smoothies found across the interweb… otherwise known as the internet, of course! Bonus: Let me introduce you to my favorite quick smoothie, which is simple and I have been making for years. Before venturing into the world of smoothies I was dumping whatever sounded good at the time into a blender (smart, right?!?). Let me be honest though, I still do it (haha)! The fruit can be fresh or frozen but I tend to use frozen. Measurements don’t have to be…

    Who Has the Better Shrimp Po’boy?

    A lot of people that live in the deep southern part of Louisiana have eaten at or at least heard of Kenner Seafood. Kenner Seafood sells fresh and live seafood, but also has dine in eating. They have an extensive menu of favorite Louisiana seafood dishes. Not interested in seafood? Don’t worry, they have you covered with chicken and pasta dishes. The seating area is the perfect environment for a Louisiana style seafood restaurant, especially the outdoor seating. The service was also excellent! Mabile’s is one the most popular places to eat in LaPlace, LA. when it comes to po’boys. It’s local and they serve great food. Not to mention…

    V’s Cafe Moves Into Town

    Have you ever gotten co-workers stuck on one of your favorite takeout meals? It happened to me with lo mein from Best Wok. It has now happened again with the club sandwich from a new hotspot for food. It all started with a basic group text message over the weekend with a picture of the sandwich. This foodie finally visited said hotspot. V’s Café is a new treat for St. John! It’s not another coffee shop. Instead it is a quaint restaurant café style. There is seating inside and outside. It is nestled on Carrollwood, located across the street from the Medicine Shoppe’s new location. Currently the café is decorated for…

    Blueberry Sweet Rolls Win

    In an attempt to budget, and up my bread making skills, before the week starts I have been making breakfast for the week. Started off making protein muffins for a while, which included blueberries. Last week’s breakfast item was Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Scones. This week’s breakfast will be Blueberry Sweet Rolls. Notice a theme here? I discovered the recipe for the blueberry sweet rolls on Instagram on Nourishing’s account. It was somewhat of a repost from Peanut Butter & Jilly’s Instagram. This is the only recipe I’ve tried from Peanut Butter & Jilly but this one is without a doubt amazing… imagine a cinnamon roll without the cinnamon and the…

    Taste Test

    Hey Readers! So many people today follow so many different diets. Keto is possibly the most popular diet of them all at the moment. I do not in any way endorse said diets. Everyone has their own reason for eating a particular way or not so particular way. All of that aside, let’s get to reviewing some health food products that I’ve tried lately! Up first is the most recent snack bar that was purchased during pandemic time. It has been so hard to locate healthy snacks at the grocery store as well as through Amazon Pantry. By chance I came across the Health Warrior Chia Bar in a chocolate…

    Dunkin Drink Inspiration

    On one of Dunkin’s instagram stories yesterday a Dunkin’ worker created a smoothie, or what I like to call not so aqua, using Dunkin’ coffee. So, in light of that post I made a little creation before going to work. I used the single serving cup that attaches to a Ninja blender. Ingredients: 1/2 Frozen banana 1/4 Cup cold brew coffee 2 Tablespoons ChocZero chocolate syrup 2 Splashes Nutpods french vanilla oat creamer 4 – 5 Ice cubes 1/4 Cup milk (optional) The recipe is very simple. Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until desired consistency. For the cold brew coffee I used instant coffee mixed…

    Oat Trail Game Changer

    Nutpods completely saved me when I was searching for a dairy free and sugar free creamer for coffee, etc. My favorite is hazelnut because… well, who doesn’t like hazelnut? Also, hazelnut helps to cover up how overpowering the coconut flavor can be at times. The original flavor works great when making various soups that require cream. Recently Nutpods joined the Oat Milk trail craze. After a lot of debating I caved and ordered the Oat Creamer Variety Pack, which consists of an original flavor and a french vanilla flavor. Over the weekend I tried french vanilla in a cup of regular coffee. Wow, what a game changer! Not only did…

    Closing Time

    It is with great sadness that my local Dunkin’ has chosen to close down. Frozen Coffee Friday won’t be the same. The COVID-19 pandemic needs to speed up the healing pace so many of our favorite places can reopen again. The delivery option is great for foodies until food places start shutting down. Twiddling our thumbs patiently will have to do. At least the employees can get a break from the proximity of each other. Today has both ups and downs. Dunkin’ temporarily closed but there is good news on Yong Mi’s end. For those of you that don’t already follow, Yong Mi is new to the fitness community and…
