There’s something about going out and picking up that freshly printed, hard copy of this month’s new fashion magazine. Don’t get us wrong, fashion blogs, Instagram, and online zines are great too but holding a magazine and idly thumbing through the pages is a past time and hobby that we can’t and won’t give up.
Magazines have a wider impact than many first may think and though they do receive their fair share of stick for, you know, the retouching and excessive adverts they also do some pretty good things too… they promote new designers, inspire people that read them and have the power to make strong statements with that all in important front cover. Recently, there have been some covers that caught the attention of the media and inspired us to make this blog! Let’s check out some covers that really made people stop and pay attention to them for a whole bunch of reasons…

Are you craving ice cream, but without all the sugar? I was recently introduced to raw ice cream by Glaser Organic Farms in Coconut Grove, Florida. It was delicious and inspired me to come up with my own raw ice cream concoctions. I just need to get my hands on some good coconut meat to give it body!
Ice Cream: Food process coconut meat, cashews, coconut water, dates, maple syrup, raw agave, whole vanilla beans using locally sourced ingredients when possible.
Topping: Handful of fresh chopped mint, small handful of homemade coconut granola, chopped pecans and frozen blueberries – locally sourced ingredients when you can find them.
Health Benefits of Raw Coconut Meat:
1. Fatty Acids: Contains medium chain fatty acids rather than the long chain fatty acids that are commonly found in other foods, which means that the saturated fat in coconut meat will not affect your cholesterol.
2. Fiber: It is recommended that you should consume 14g of fiber for every 1000 calories you eat. Consuming foods high in fiber helps keep you feeling full so you are less likely to overeat.
3. Manganese: Manganese is used by the body to metabolize protein, fat and help the body make use of vitamin E, iron and thiamine. It can also help to ensure that your body has stable levels of blood sugar and assist with immune and nervous system function.
4. Copper and Potassium: Copper helps to produce the sense of taste and producing red blood cells. Potassium helps to maintain the proper level of fluids in the cells and maintain sodium levels. Source: Med Health
