Did those 5 words in my post title catch your attention? Oooh, I bet they did! I’ll explain in a minute! Food first!
Today’s lunch was a mix of a bunch of delicious and nutritious goodies. On my plate: leftover Paleo Pad Thai.
And a spaghetti squash-egg-coconut flour pancake with avocado on top. The pancake kind of bombed—I cooked it too fast and it stuck to the pan—so I’m going to give it a whirl again later this week. I have lots of spaghetti squash to use up!
Ok, are you ready to hear about this vanilla cake batter coconut butter? Oh my goodness, it’s heavenly! Life-changing even!
Nikki from Nikki’s Coconut Butter recently contacted me to see if I wanted to try her flavored coconut butters. I love all things coconut, so, of course, I was game. She sent me two jars: vanilla cake batter and honey pecan pie. I bet you can guess which one I tried first!
Both flavors are OMG, AMAZING. The vanilla cake batter flavor reminds me of really thick, grainy vanilla frosting and the honey pecan pie flavor reminds me of the apple-cinnamon gooeyness in warm apple crisp. Holy yum indeed!
I’m planning to host a giveaway to win a couple of jars of Nikki’s Coconut Butter next week, but if you want to buy some now, use coupon code “COCO10” to get 10% off of your first order.

I’ve recently made changes to my diet due to some health issues, but it hasn’t been easy to give up my favorite foods and drinks, specifically iced coffee and beer. Yet, I know it’s for the best, especially if these adjustments might improve my health.
Whether it’s a necessary switch due to an intolerance or health condition, or you just want to begin a better eating routine, changing up your diet is never easy. Here are some things I’ve kept in mind to make my own transition easier. I hope they work for you too!
I’m off to walk Murphy and then CrossFit!
Have a nice night, friends!
