Mango Coconut Energy Bites

You know how people declare something really really tasty as ‘drool worthy’? Well how many times do they actually drool. I mean come on most people don’t drool no matter how amazing something tastes. But you know what? I drooled. Eating one of these sweet delights drool fell out of my mouth in slow motion and hit my drooling baby on the head. For it was the sweetest thing I’ve eaten during this whole body reset and God knows I of course can’t stop looking at food gawker and pining over all of donut days creations. My jaw dropped over this one, seriously chica, did you just do that? Take my word for it, these energy bites are drool worthy, in a healthy sort of way. 

Happy full moon to everyone. It’s the first full moon on a Friday the 13th since 1919. The only Friday the 13th in all of 2014. Haven’t left my house today, have you? This is the ‘honey moon’, and actually where the term honeymoon originated. People used to wed around the solstice and so the closest full moon to solstice being called the honey moon it only made sense to encapsulate a couples celebration.  Full moons make me feel anxious, jittery, like I’m not doing enough. On rainy days like today though, I don’t really want to do much. Except eat sweet things and feel inspired by the misty mountains and the blue bird eating dead wasps off my deck.  Another fun astrology tid bit for ya- Neptune,Saturn, Pluto and Mercury are all in retrograde right now.  What does that mean? Well apparently its a time to reflect.  Kaypacha‘s weekly mantra-

“There’s no escape from consciousness,
I can no longer stay asleep,
Without a rude awakening,
To keep me on my feet.”
