Is it time for a taste of the tropics? I tell you, this is the LONGEST winter I have ever seen in Calgary. Sure, sure, we’re the Great White North, but this is getting a little bit ridiculous! We had a snowfall warning today for up to 20 cm (that’s the better part of a foot, Imperialists!) and it’s the middle of April. I mean I know that we have a reputation for dog-sledding ten months out of the year, but that’s just a stereotype, not reality. Although I do like the joke about Canada’s four seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction (ba-doop-ching!). Perhaps the travel agent business is actually the business to be in, catering to cabin-fever-crazed Canucks looking to get away from our perpetually white landscape (and generally pasty skin for the Caucasian part of our medley mosaic). In any event, I am in the business of delicious, healthful treats to keep your mind off of the weather and keep you from hibernating in a parka spooning with a tub of Ben and Jerry’s. Without further ado, I bring you: Coconut Lime Yogurt Delight!
I’m just getting back into the groove of blogging (see, it happens with blogging as much as it does with health and fitness pursuits). You’re in good company if now is the time you are emerging from a cocoon and contemplating getting on board (or back on board) with establishing a routine of healthful eating and/or exercise (you’re in the right place for both!). As with any change, start small and let the little wins build up to create confidence and momentum to spur you to serious successes. This quick, easy and delicious recipe is a great place to start. Let’s get ready for a tropical taste sensation!
