Free Paleo Beginners Guide

 

Have you ever considered doing paleo? I’ve had great success with paleo but it can definitely be hard to know where to start. Thankfully, this book was sent to me and it really lays out how to start doing paleo. The basic premise of paleo is to go back to how we ate as caveman. So lots of meat, vegetables, and fruit but less so on the grains and processed foods. It’s not really a diet but generally you will lose some weight on it.

10 Ways to use Matcha!

Have you tried Matcha yet? Matcha is a green tea powder that is loaded with antioxidants. I was lucky enough to be able to try Kiss Me Organics Organic Matcha Powder

Usually I just dissolve the green tea powder in some ice water and enjoy a refreshing drink. But this time I decided to experiment with some additional ways to use matcha. 

  1. Adding it to coffee instead of using a sweetener. It won’t be as sweet as sugar, but it is subtly sweet. Plus it brings those all important antioxidants early in the morning!
  2. Granola. Add some matcha to your granola! It adds a little sweet taste.
  3. Popsicles!!!! Add some matcha and water into popsicle molds and freeze them. This is super tasty and as soon as summer comes, you’ll be loving the refreshment!
  4. Miso soup. I love ordering miso soup from the local Japanese restaurant, but it seems to either be bland or too salty! Adding matcha will give it a little more flavor and reduce the saltiness!
  5. Enjoy it on  bagel! Mix some matcha into your favorite cream cheese and spread it over your bagel!
  6. Mojitos or other fruity alcoholic drinks! Just mix it right into the shaker. Go on, add some healthiness to that drink!
  7. Smoothies! Mix it up with a banana, cup of almond milk, a little bit of honey and some matcha. 
  8. Green tea latte, just like Starbucks! Combine 1tsp matcha powder with 2 oz of hot water, stir. Then pour 6 ounces of steamed milk over it!
  9. Spice Rub: Combine 1 tsp matcha, 1/1 teaspoon each black pepper, salt, ginger, thyme, and chili. Add 1/8 teaspoon cumin. Store in a container for up to 6 months~
  10. Freeze it! Put some matcha in ice trays, fill with water, and use in drinks to cool them off!

Millie’s Fling by Jill Mansell Review

Millie’s Fling was a great chick-lit book. If you haven’t read anything by Jill Mansell, you absolutely must. You are very easily able to tell it is a British novel by its quick witt. There were many times during the book that I was literally laughing out loud. That got me some weird stares in the doctor’s office. 

“When her dear friend and bestselling novelist Orla Hart invites Millie to spend the summer with her in Cornwall, Millie leaps at the chance to spend the summer alone, recovering from a bad breakup. But Orla has other ideas.

Envisioning Millie as the heroine of her next novel, Orla is determined that Millie should meet the man of her dreams this summer. The trouble is, Millie’s taste in men doesn’t match with Orla’s at all.

Hugh Emerson, dashing young widower, is the one who really interests her. He is also the one man Orla insists she shouldn’t get involved with.

With dropped wallets, rollerskating gorillagrams, the world’s most flirtatious boss, and a helicopter in the back garden, It’s sure to be an unforgettable summer…

A fresh and fun British women’s fiction and a great romantic book with plenty of humor, friendship, and some madcap fun.”

Most romance novels, it is pretty easy to tell exactly how the plot will play out. But not this book. It kept me on my toes! This book is truly delightful, complete with humor, and many, many misunderstandings. You will not want to put this book down, so I highly recommend starting it in the morning.
