You've heard of the typical "bar hop" where you go from bar to bar meeting people, tasting different drinks, and getting to know a new city. But, have you heard of a "coffee shop hop"? This Saturday morning my boyfriend, Tony and I decided to go try a cup of coffee at three different coffee shops. I went to places I'd never been and had a blast seeing new parts of Birmingham. Church Street Coffee and Books Located at 81 Church St, Mountain Brook, AL 35213, Church Street Coffee and Books is one of the most adorable places I've seen in Birmingham. This is a fantastic place to see new books and...

Coconut Vegan Latte

Category: 
Spring is in the air! As the weather gets warmer, I still crave a warm cup of coffee in the morning. Right now we're brewing a local grind from Red Bike Coffee . It is devine! I recently became interested (maybe obsessed because of all the amazing health benefeits) with using pure, unrefined, organic coconut oil in everything! I found that it adds a very creamy flavor to my coffee without the use of any dairy products. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy locally vat processed, organic milk pretty often (Thank you Working Cow of Alabama ), but a dairy free option is always a nice change of pace. I...

Simple Summer Salad

Category: 
Summer is a fun, active time of year for me. There are days when I want to spend as much time as possible outdoors jogging, cycling, or going to the river with my friends.

I have found that making simple salads in the evening opens up the next day for more healthy and CLEAN EATING options. This recipe is a base. I use these staple veggies and add all kinds of variations throughout the Summer. I hope this helps you make good choices for...
