Yummy Treats in Hawaii

Part of me is sad they don’t remember some of the fun things they liked doing when they were younger and we lived on Oahu, but it’s also pretty cool to see their excitement when they find out they actually get to drink out of a real coconut and it was one of their favorite things to get when we went to the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet!

Another cool and refreshing treat is Hawaiian Shave Ice!

Too busy to Shaka 🤣🤣 When I was a kid growing up in Massachusetts , shave ice was called a snow cone. The roller rink was the only place that sold it and it didn’t come with amazing toppings! My favorite toppings are vanilla ice cream, condensed milk, adzuki beans & boba. Hawaii’s Shaved Ice game is on point! 👊🏼

What’s your favorite Hawaiian Shaved Ice toppings?

Bucket list item  🙌🏼🙌🏼

And it was sooooooo good!

I had to drive about 2 hrs into Philadelphia today with my dad. I had told him about this place and that we just had to  drive the extra 20 mints to eat at Elsie’s,  Home of the famous pickle sandwich!!

We lucked out and ended up visiting on their opening weekend in their new spot! Talk about perfect timing!

It is hands down the most delicious sandwich that has ever crossed my 👄

Now the Pickle Roll was a complete surprise & went above beyond my expectations!

If you are anywhere close it’s a must go to!!

I’m always trying out new combos for smoothies and I really like this one! It’s a great way to pack extra protein and carbs into the morning, especially on days you know you can’t get a morning snack in or if you are having a late lunch.

Combine in blender:
3/4 cup no sugar added almond milk
1/4 cup no sugar added Greek yogurt
1/2 cup frozen organic blue berries
1 banana
Handful of baby kale or spinach
1 TBS ground flax meal
2 scoops of Young Living Vanilla Protein Complete


Protein Chocolate Bites


These were so easy to make and it provided a quick and easy breakfast for the kids that was packed with good nutrition to get them started in school with a sweet twist to get them devouring them!

Mix together the following in a blender for best and quickest results:

1 cup of Oats

2 scoops of Young Livings Protein Complete

2 oz Organic peanut butter, no sugar added (measure by weight, I used kitchen scale it’s less clean up)

1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips (I used the Enjoy brand, they have less sugar, but taste great!)

2 oz of Almond Milk

You can scoop and form into a ball or press into pan and chill before serving.
