In fact every single human body is more than rad. It’s remarkable, and capable of soooooo many incredible things. Case in point: Freedivers that can hold their breath for 5 minutes, marathon runners, rock climbers, powerlifters, hip hop dancers, Kobayashi, and of course, surfers. But, even non-pro or extreme athletes (ordinary joe’s like myself) are cable of amazing things. Another case in point: Beating personal bests in a timed mile, hiking a 14’er, completing a triathlon, or rehabbing from a life altering injury to being better than before.

Clip off the bottom of the sock, or fold the excess under for a less permanent solution.

Ever add coconut milk to your coffee, only to end your morning with a final swig of chalky white powder. You could only hope that the chalky substance in boxed coconut milk is some form of macerated coco. But flip the box over and read the ingredients. Chances are, the list extends far beyond coconut and water. Instead of ditching coconut milk all together, take 2 minutes (maybe 7 if starting from a whole coconut) and whip up some of the fresh stuff. You’ll end up with a creamier milk (no chalk), sans additives, stabilizers and whatever else was on that boxed variety ingredient list. Add it to cereal, chia seed pudding, and yes, this morning’s coffee. Read on for the how to… (more…)
