I have found that one of my newest favorite ingredients right now is coconut milk. After hearing the great reviews on how coconut fat helps your health I started using it more. I am loving it, and my family is enjoying it too.

I actually pulled the mint out of my backyard “garden”. If you are looking for a plant that just won’t die try mint. You can even start a leaf in a cup of water. I’m known for killing plants but my mint is spreading and thriving like a weed!
