TRIPPIN' THURSDAYTHE RV LIFE
Speaking of morning...coffee! I like mine flavored and thought I'd share a recipe I came up with. There are two reasons I'm experimenting with this. First, I thought it might be cheaper than buying the flavored creamers, and second, I wanted to add some health benefit to my morning java.
Cinnamon is one of the healthiest spices. It can lower blood sugar levels and reduce heart disease risk among other things. Coconut oil is great for keeping your cholesterol in check so also good for your heart. And fiber plays a role in digestive, heart, and skin health. So here is my coffee recipe:
1/2 tsp honey
3 shakes of cinnamon
1 tsp fiber (I use a soluble fiber called Benefiber)
1 tbs cream
1 cup coffee
You can of course add more oil and honey for a sweeter concoction. Mix ingredients in a blender until you have a frothy delicious cup of latte! Also note, I have a single size blender so I don't have to drag out the big one. Makes it easier. You can get one for $10-$15.
It's growing more quiet by the day on the RV ranch. Two of our Happy Hour Crew couples have left and won't return until mid October. Others we don't know have vacated. I did meet a new couple yesterday who are here for the long haul. She has a garden started in pots and a spiral tower. Pretty impressive. Their story is much like ours...sold the home fast and not sure where they want to light next so they came here. They might find themselves in no hurry to leave just like us.
