golden milk

Aka Turmeric Ginger Milk Tea (dairy free)! Why? Turmeric is: -anti-inflammatory -cleanses the gut -helps you to sleep -fights off colds & flu Ginger: -soothes sore throat -aids in digestion -helps nausea My mom used to make me ginger milk all the time. Decided it was time to up my game and add the turmeric. Pretty good! 😊 Ingredients 2 cups of almond milk 1 teaspoon dried turmeric 1 teaspoon dried ginger or 1/2 inch of fresh ginger sliced Sprinkle of black pepper Sweetener to taste Place almond milk in a saucepan over medium heat.

Anxiety + stress is a b**** I had quite a night. E fell pretty hard off her bed into a nightstand and then face first on to the hardwood. Which led to an ER visit and now headed to a dentist. She’s somewhat ok & thankfully didn’t have a concussion. If you’re a parent, you know how much it sucks to see your baby hurt. When there’s so much blood and you can’t tell where it’s coming from. Add anxiety & a child that hates going to the doctor… All I wanted this morning was junk food. I was seriously…

Hi loves! I’ve been running a “plant based challenge” group on Facebook and it’s been wonderful! We’ve gone over nutrition, recipes, how to eat a plant based diet on the go, and so much more. One of my favorite and super easy recipes that’s full of protein, fiber, & other good stuff for your bod: chickpea salad. I cook chickpeas ahead of time because it’s just cheaper and I know it’s not covered in salt. You can totally make it from can though, just rinse it. Place 2 cups (or one can) of chickpeas in a food processor or mash…

I’m pretty much obsessed with this new snack! All of us are. I made 2 cans worth of chickpeas and they were gone in 2 days! And I’m ok with that, because chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) are nutritious! One cup of the beans provides you with*: – 15g protein – 13g fiber – good source of calcium, potassium, and vitamin B 6. Buffalo Roasted Chickpeas Ingredients: 1 can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained well 1 tbs olive oil 8 tbs Franks Hot Sauce sea salt (optional) Directions: Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Place chickpeas in a bowl and coat with…

banana-pancakes

My kids LOVE pancakes! So to make them a little healthier, I make them out of oatmeal and wholewheat or spelt flour. These pancakes come out pretty dense and full of flavor! 1 c oat flour.

In a separate bowl, combine all of the…

Learning how to read labels and why it’s important to do so has been eye opening and sometimes disgusting. Do you know how many hidden chemicals are in your food?  How much sugar is in your favorite foods? Well, that excludes me. I buy sugar free food and health bars. Wrong. Let’s take a look at this nutrition label: A few years ago, I was following this crazy diet that included eating these “nutritional” bars. First off, this bar and so many so called health bars, are full of genetically modified ingredients, i.e. fake food. Second, do you see how…
