6 | How A Quest For The Perfect Cup Of Coffee Led Two Tinkerers To A Business Breakthrough | Fast Company | business + innovation This is a story about the life-changing power of tinkering. This is also a story about a really good cup of coffee. Doug and Barb Garrott live in a hilly corner of northern Idaho, just east of the twin college towns of Moscow (Idaho) and Pullman (Washington) that straddle the state line. The same year they got married, they started working as estate auctioneers, and for a decade they ran an eBay store selling antiques and collectibles. In 2002, during an antiquing trip to Seattle, the tinkerers stopped for a cup of coffee at the city's famous Espresso Vivace and a new obsession took root: the Garrotts wanted to make coffee that good at home. As soon as they got back to Idaho, they bought a home espresso machine and dove into the world of online coffee forums for advice. Growing Up Why should anyone care about a coffee grinder? Over the course of a few years making the rounds at the major coffee conventions, the Garrotts had gotten to know a serial coffee entrepreneur named Kyle Anderson.

Bulletproof Coffee: Maximum Energy, Health & Performance Firstly, I do not claim to be the original creator/inventor of bulletproof coffee. The original bulletproof coffee was developed by Dave Asprey, also known as the Bulletproof Executive… I wholeheartedly thank Dave for his awesome contribution, but my recipe (like many other variations) is going to be more natural and a way, way cheaper version… The thing is, Dave Asprey creates and markets his own special coffee & coconut oil to make his bulletproof coffee – Dave says these ingredients increase the benefits of drinking the coffee, but one thing they will certainly do is decrease your bank balance, as both his products cost an absolute fortune! Basically bulletproof coffee is black coffee with added grass-fed butter and coconut oil. I know it sounds disgusting, but I assure you it is totally delicious and it makes you feel amazing. When made right it is very rich and creamy, reminiscent of a latte. Benefits of Bulletproof Coffee How To Make Bulletproof Coffee You will need

Eat That Weed | Home of edible weed walks in Melbourne, and the new publication: The Weed Forager's Handbook: A Guide to Edible and Medicinal Weeds in Australia 9 Not-So-Safe “Healthy” Foods You Should Avoid Dr. Joeseph Mercola Some foods have been promoted as “healthy” when they’re exactly the opposite. Clean Plates founder Jared Koch shared nine examples. Here’s an expansion on his observations: 1. Many canned foods contain BPA, a toxic chemical linked to reproductive and neurological abnormalities, such as breast and prostate cancers, diabetes and heart disease. High acidity in tomatoes causes BPA to leach into your food. 2. A 2011 review of more than 7,000 clinical studies, commissioned by The World Cancer Research Fund, examined the connection between diet and cancer and confirmed previous findings that processed meats like ham and salami increase colorectal, stomach and pancreatic cancers.

Homemade Fajita Seasoning Once upon a time, Pat and I made chicken fajita tacos by opening a bag of pre-made frozen fajita chicken. True story! We’d thaw them in a skillet and fill our soft taco shells with the chicken, shredded lettuce and cheese. Thasss it. Now I make my own fajita seasoning. We’ve come a long way since boxed chicken, cheese and iceberg and I’m happy to share with you all the recipe for the easiest homemade fajita taco seasoning… from scratch of course. Now we all have cabinets or drawers full of spices and making your own seasonings is a great way to use those up before they expire. In a small bowl or my personal fave a mason jar add the corn starch. Now just add in the chili powder… Kosher salt… Paprika… Sugar… Lastly add in the cayenne pepper for some kick and the cumin. Stir it all up and it’s good to go! Seriously it’s crazy good and just as easy! Save your money and never buy store-bought fajita seasoning again!
