Back to hiking and a "paleo" white russian

I went for a 6 mile hike today in the Adirondacks, got in some pretty awesome cardio (2000 feet of elevation in less than 2 miles... and we kind of ran up it just to test ourselves :D) and wanted to share some pictures. It was a stunningly gorgeous day:

As for the second part of my post, I had to share my drink, haha. So I allow myself a drink once in a while even when I am being as paleo as possible. I love to have a drink on a relaxing night with friends, and since I don't drink every week, I only need one drink and I get a little buzz! Nice times. I know the liquor isn't paleo, but sometimes, you make a concession :)

Anyway, last night was my chosen night. I used to LOVE White Russians, before I realized I had to give up dairy (even if I eat a little wheat now and then, I still stay away from dairy... definitely doesn't do my stomach any good).

So instead of milk, kahlua and vodka.... tada: COCONUT milk, kahlua and vodka. Delicious!! Much kinder to my lactose-intolerant self. And a shot or two of vodka is MORE than enough (I couldn't quite finish the drink, even! such a lightweight now).

So there's my weekend in a nutshell. A little drinking, relaxing and a hike. Low key and easy.

  1. Gorgeous view! I tried coconut milk this weekend...and was a little disappointed. Do you get the "unsweetened" or the "no added sugar" variety?
