The hilarious and unfiltered adventures of two sisters

YAY!!! Our first post!

So I just want to give a little background info on how our site came to be and what it is about….

Linda and I (Laura) are sisters living miles apart.  I’m in Ontario and she is in Newfoundland.  Despite the distance, she is my best friend and the one I look to for advice, to vent to, and to share all the crazy, hilarious idiosyncrasies of life.  We are constantly texting each other all day long – telling funny stories about what our kids/husbands/parents did, sharing pictures and videos and advice on how to (fill in the blank).

Apparently Linda, (who is an editor and will make our site look pretty and professional) has been wanting to start her own website for some time.  After reading a post from another blogger she sends me a text and suggests we choose a topic and start one together!  Since we have hilarious (and sometimes even informative) conversations on a daily basis I suggest we post that!

Since we don’t always agree (obviously! we ARE sisters)  we might even have arguing posts!  For example, Linda makes her own kefir (really who has time for THAT anyway)…..Hey! maybe you can post about that next!  Anyway, she thinks that kefir has magical healing power and makes everyone she comes into contact with (that is brave enough) drink it.  I, on the other hand, know that kefir is fermented milk product that keeps your gut bacteria healthy and helps with digestion but that’s it…. (I think I just started a posting argument).

So there you go…. what you can expect to find on our site are posts about the funny / annoying things our kids / husbands / parents do.  Advice and our opinions about good products / recipes we like.  How to do basic daily tasks such as peel an egg / cook fish and clean really dirty tile grout.

ENJOY 🙂

How to Make Bulletproof Coffee

How to Make Bulletproof Coffee

When someone told me I should check out bulletproof coffee, that sounded great! Sign me up! But then I found out it was coffee, butter and oil… nasty! After I read all the claims, I said let’s give it a try! (I haven’t told Laura about this coffee because she is going to freak out at me for drinking butter and oil, Laura is my dietitian sister, if you haven’t read our background

Bulletproof coffee was created in 2009 by Dave Asprey. It’s an ‘upgraded coffee’ blended with unsalted grass-fed butter and ‘Brain Octane oil’. Brain Octane oil is 18x stronger than coconut oil. Some people use MCT oil, which is derived from coconut oil and is 1.6x stronger than coconut oil. I’m not sure I understand what ‘stronger’ means, but when I tried to buy MCT oil at the health food store, the guy said just use coconut oil. Asprey also says his ‘upgraded coffee’ doesn’t have the toxins that most other coffee beans do, which seems a little sketchy to me.

Asprey claims that it boosts your cognitive function, stops cravings and helps to lose weight through ketosis. Ketosis is when your body is mostly fueled by fat, there is very little carbs or glucose in the body for fuel. It’s supposed to keep you full for hours, which it did keep me feeling full for most of the morning. I can’t really prove any other claims because I haven’t used the Brain Octane oil, only coconut oil. Maybe I’ll buy his oil to try it out.

When I first tried bulletproof coffee I just used a high quality local coffee, unsalted grass-fed butter, and coconut oil. It was delicious! I know, butter in coffee?? But you’ve got to try it! It’s like a creamy latte, I still make it occasionally, when I know I’m going to eat healthy that day 🙂 or when I get a craving for it. Sometimes, I skip the coconut oil to save calories, it still keeps me full most of the morning. Here’s how to make it…


Brew your coffee, then add 1-2 Tablespoons of unsalted grain-fed Butter, then 1-2 Tablespoons of Coconut oil. You HAVE to blend it together! I use a hand blender, but you can use a regular blender. If you do not blend it the oil just sits on top and that’s gross, but when you blend it, the magic happens! It becomes this creamy, foamy coffee. I don’t put anything in it, but some people put vanilla or cinnamon in it.

Enjoy!
