Paleo Friendly Coconut Basil Mojito

That title is intriguing isn’t it? This recipe was inspired by a drink that we had at the Tipsy Tuna in Placencia, Belize. It was by far both mine and Andy’s favorite cocktail on our vacation.

Mojitos have been my go-to tropical drink for the past few years now. They are light, refreshing, and many times have some fresh fruit added too. I’ve tried to find the perfect Mojito in Costa Rica, Cancun, Puerto Rico, and Belize. Wow, that’s a whole lot of Mojito trying!

So to commemorate the long weekend, our new house, and a sunset view, Andy and I decided to attempt our own Mojito recipe last weekend! The best part is that we used all paleo friendly ingredients so this home made version isn’t even considered a “cheat.”

I hope you enjoy!

My Current Running Playlist

Happy Friday!  Who actually publishes Blog Posts on a Friday at 7PM?  Oh yeah, I do!

But hey cut me some slack.  Between work, Yoga Training, finding time to practice yoga and run, AND getting ready to move, I haven’t had the most free time in the world.

With that said, I wanted to share with you guys my current running playlist.  I’m a somewhat new Spotify user.  The boyfriend had been pushing me to try it forever and I finally caved.  He was right, it’s awesome!  You can get pretty much get any song / album you want offline for just $10 a month.  A pretty big savings if you are buying individual songs from iTunes.

This playlist might seem random to some but I like a pretty wide variety of music I would say.  This current playlist has been a mix of feel good music, new music, and just some good tempos / beats.

What’s on your running playlist right now?  I’d love to get some newbies!

Hope everyone has a fantabulous weekend!  I have Yoga Teacher Training, so stay tuned for the re-cap!

The Best Weekend in Boston

Hi Friends!  I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend (yes I know it’s already Tuesday/Wednesday)!

I had such a wonderful weekend in my favorite city and former home, Boston!  I hadn’t been in quite a while so it was really nice to see friends, go to my favorite places, and of course be there for Marathon Weekend!

The city was absolutely buzzing all weekend.  It sort of had this powerful energy surrounding it.  It seemed that everyone was honoring the events of last year by coming together and representing the strength and resilience of the city.

On Saturday morning we woke up at about 7AM and hopped on the T to get to the Start Line of the B.A.A. 5k race.

There were 10,000 runners signed up this year.  More than double than the typical number!

There were a ton of runners wearing shirts in honor of Martin Richards.

This is my favorite part of running 5k’s in Back Bay.  Everyone screams and cheers while running under this bridge on Comm Ave.  Continue reading
