My Favorite Coconut Chicken

Ok I'm on a roll.

Here's what I ate today.


Leftover hamburger helper and eggs cooked in ghee...

Topped with the best salsa.


Leftover coconut chicken.  It may not look like much but this is one of my FAVORITE recipes ever.  The flavors together are incredible.  Just sub the soy sauce for coconut aminos and skip the rice if you are going the paleo route.  Add some more veggies instead of the rice or have it over cauliflower rice.  I also had some leftover massaged kale on the side.


Turmeric milk.

And a Perfect bar.


Is it summer yet?  Here in Monterey it's summery in the afternoons.  Even in January.

These hotdogs are amazing.  A million times better than Applegate grass fed dogs.

Put on a whole wheat bun with salad and mango on the side.

Check out my instagram to see what I had for dessert! [kristenatcop]

RECIPE: In The Bag

I've been making almond milk for years. I like almond milk for the taste. I'm not dairy intolerant. I just don't really care for the taste of milk. I've tried many recipes and they all taste good. I've found that the secret though is in the bag.

Really it is.

I have three "nut milk bags". I've tried them all. I've even tried layering them. I still end up with grit in my almond milk when I use them.  I don't like that.  A few years ago I started using a small 100% organic cotton bag and I haven't turned back.

Homemade Almond Milk
1 cup of almonds soaked overnight
3 cups of water

Blend the almonds and the water for about a minute or two and then strain through a bag (whichever you prefer!). Refrigerate for up to three days.

The bag I use is from ecobags.  I found mine at Whole Foods but you can find it here.  To wash I just use an unscented dish soap and then let it drip dry.
