Post yoga raw granola with homemade almond milk. Insanely delicious!

Raw brownies, raw carrot cake, raw buckwheat breakfast bars, raw kale chips, raw energy balls… The girls had gone all out!

Look at that carrot cake slice!

No one has missed I’m a massive Coconut & Kale fan. Faye and Jas, the ladies behind this amazing business, are friends of mine so I’ve had the amazing privilege to try a lot of their incredible creations. They are two very busy ladies who always have a million projects going on so catching them serving their stuff, like they did yesterday at lululemon Glasgow is rare but so worth all that wait in between.

The day started off with yoga in the showroom in the morning. John Collins led the class which was quite dynamic and strong. I’ve become more of a fan of the restorative classes recently but his class was amazing. Both Faye and I were sore from our G5 session on Friday morning and wow did we get a good stretch in our sore legs. My favourite part of his class was the heart opening stretches in the shoulders and chest. It felt incredible! It’s probably the area I’m the most stiff and tense in. I’m going to try and do some of the stretches we did in the class regularly to try and ease the tension. We’ll see ho it goes!

After class we all got to try out Coconut & Kale’s raw granola with their homemade almond milk. It was heavenly! Whilst everyone was nibbling away I helped the girls set up their table of goodies. I just wanted to buy everything. It was all too tempting!! I got to try small samples of nearly all the food they brought along and it was just one incredible taste experience to the next. They truly have a gift these ladies.

I stuck around for a while just trying to support in anyway I could and then headed off to see Jamie. I didn’t leave empty handed, how could I?! A bag of granola, a tub energy balls and raw kale chips got to come home with me. The girls also gave me a raw vegan chilli salad and a slice of brownie as a thank you. They truly didn’t need to as I love to help them if I can in anyway just because I want them to open up a shop here in Glasgow but I couldn’t say no if they were offering me more food hehe.

The girls mentioned that they are hoping to do more events and pop ups in the future so keep an eye out on their Instagram and FacebookThey take orders as well!
