Coffee: My Favorite Ways

If you ever took a look at my Instagram account, it’s pretty clear that I have a strong love affair going with coffee. I love coffee so many ways, for so many reasons. I gave up coffee twice in my life, and both times I actually felt depressed and sad. I love coffee for giving me energy, making me happy, helping me go to the bathroom, and because it is so damn delicious. During the summer, I am strictly an…

Jill’s Detox Juice Recipe

Who needs coffee when you can make this detox juice?! Scratch that. Who needs a second coffee when you can make this detox juice?! Because let’s be real, I’m not giving up my coffee – ever. But this detox juice really is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. It’s energizing as well as detoxifying. If you’re a woman struggling with PMS, limiting your exposure to toxins (yes, this even includes toxic people!) and helping your body out with detox processes is the…

Gingerbread Coffee

Gingerbread Coffee (Serves 2) One of my favorite things about the holiday season is the seasonal coffee flavors. Back in the day I lived for going to Starbucks and getting either a Gingerbread Latte or an Eggnog Latte (never a Peppermint Mocha because I despise mint chocolate). Now that I’m more conscious about what I put into my body, I make my own versions of these delicious coffee treats! Gingerbread Latte’s were my usual go-to, and this year I finally…

Toasted Almond “Iced Coffee”

Dandy Blend is an instant “coffee alternative” made from dandelions. It tastes similar to coffee, but it’s caffeine-free. Dandelions are great for the liver and detoxifying the body. I like to drink Dandy Blend when I’m craving coffee later in the day. I normally only drink two cups of coffee in the morning, so I’ll have this toasted almond flavored drink at night for a treat. It’s also a great alternative to people who love coffee but can’t drink it.…

“Peanut Butter” Protein Shake (peanut-free)

  Do you suffer from peanut allergies? Let sunbutter come to your rescue! Sunbutter doesn’t taste exactly like peanut butter, but it’s a really great substitute. Peanut butter shakes are so creamy and delicious, which inspired me to make this one made with sunbutter. I have an obsession with the TV show Friends- like serious obsession. It’s my favorite show & my therapy when I’m feeling bad. You know like when you’re having one of those “isn’t that just kick you…

Pumpkin Spice Coffee

  Before I became paleo I was obsessed with Pumpkin Lattes from Dunkin Donuts & Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks. I always looked forward to fall and enjoying the specialty coffees. Now that I know those lattes are full of junk, I make my own. I personally don’t put the maple syrup in because I enjoy it fine without the sweetener. This coffee is my favorite part of the morning!   Easy- ***** Fast- ***** Spicy- no   Ingredients: 2…
