Slip-i-dee-do-dah – Day 7

Sunday morning we woke bleary eyed after tag teaming the past two nights with our bronchitis ridden daughter.  Monitoring fever, listening to breathing, consoling and hugging our sick kid, it immediately made me grateful I lived through their newborn years with relatively no health scares, cause it’s scary.

So, my husband and I agreed, Sunday was a coffee morning.  We used the last bit of our locally roasted Avoca beans that had been taunting me for the past week for the perfect pour over.  I toasted up my beloved Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel bread, spread one side with coconut oil and the other with Nuttzo (NP).  We sat down at our dining table, our kids happily watching something terrible on Netflix, and we thoroughly enjoyed our tumble off the Clean wagon.

Now, where does that leave us after enjoying all the contraband?  Did we fail?  Are we losers?

We don’t think so, actually it was a great experience.  The coffee made me feel all hyped up and I had trouble taking a deep breath – never felt that before, or maybe had never been aware of it?  While the preparation and that lovely smell were divine the after effects had me sincerely questioning if coffee would make it back into my daily rotation post-Clean. We were happy to jump back into Clean after the morning’s indulgence.  I even made the best smoothie I may have ever created (recipe tomorrow).  In conclusion, I think this was a good slip for us, of course, time will tell, stay tuned to see if we can make it to our finish line.


What are you, Nuttzo?

Purple Nuttzo:

1 cup coconut water

1 handful ice

1 cup frozen blueberries

1 date (pitted)

2 tbs Nuttzo NP

What is Nuttzo you ask?  Nuttzo is my new fun thing to dump in smoothies or smother on Ezekiel bread or spread on apples, it’s got: Cashews, Almonds, Brazil Nuts, Hazelnuts, Chia Seeds, Flax Seeds and Pumpkin Seeds ALL of which are organic and full of Omega-3’s.  The other thing that’s nuts about this product is the price, it’s like $16.00, BUT it’s pretty much a meal in a couple tablespoons, so maybe it’s not so bad.  They’ve got a few other flavors like “Dark Chocolate” that have an amazing nutty blend as well- that one is calling my name…after this whole rancid peanut thing passes that is! Until then I’m good with the Nuttzo NP (no peanut).
