I am ALL about green smoothies lately. Usually I am more of a juice girl but lately green smoothies have been so much better to me. I would change out the mango juice for whole mango but yum! Plus, I LOVEEEE Oh She Glows!
So this week is sleep awareness week (I know, does anyone feel like in 2016 they added a bunch of random awareness weeks haha!), but it is a great opportunity to share on the importance of sleep and tips to sleep better. Not getting a sleep has SO many adverse health effects including increased hunger and cravings, increased risk of disease, ages you faster and obviously puts you at risk for things like falling asleep behind the wheel. If you want to read for about the side effects of too little sleep see HERE on WebMD:). The good news is things like this can be prevented by sleeping more and hopefully some of these tips will help you out!
I hope you guys are having a good week. Is it just me or does this week seem to have been SO long! Literally on Tuesday it felt like Friday already, haha. So with Valentines Day fast approaching I wanted to touch on a subject most people are sensitive about. I’m not getting to into I just want to say it’s okay to be single of Valentines Day. You can make it super fun! Get a bunch of friends together, make chocolate, watch sappy movies and have an overall great day. However, what I think a lot of people don’t say is if you do feel sad for one reason or another that is okay too! You don’t have to force yourself with being alone on that day if you’re not okay with it!
Anyway, I wanted to share a SUPER fun recipe for raw chocolate hearts to share on Valentines Day!
Raw Chocolate Hearts:
~1/2c Coconut Oil
~Maple Syrup to Taste
~Dash Sea Salt
Stir Together and then place in small heart shape molds. After they are in the molds place in freezer. Once they are done you should have a bunch of raw heart chocolates~ Enjoy!:) <3
I hope you enjoy these~
Do you eat chocolate on Valentines Day?
This is a post I wish not so many people related too, but unfortunately so many people do relate to this. I wanted to share my experience with Gastroparesis.
First, let me briefly explain what that is for those who don’t know. Gastroparesis is when your stomach doesn’t pump like it should, slowed peristalsis. It can cause so many issues and takes a toll on every part of yourself.
I have been to the ER several times, and have tried every healing protocol there is to help me with no avail. It takes a toll of your self esteem because your weight can fluctuate a lot, and a lot of the time it’s so hard for people to understand the pain you are in and how stressful meal times become.
A lot of the time it is like what the heck do I eat or do I do. Sometimes you don’t want to leave the house because your in pain.
I wanted to write this to let you know YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Seek support on your journey. Honestly, this journey to heal is definitely emotional so feel free to talk about your feelings.
Here are some tips that helped me:
1. I did a post on tips here ( so excuse me if some these tips are repeated).
2. Check out Living Well With Gastroparesis.
4. Take a superfood shake. I know you hear about this shake a lot, but honestly Shakeology helped me a lot. If this is something you want to try to just comment below.
5. Be kind to yourself. This should be #1
Anyway, short and sweet….I’m not a long lengthy blog post kind of girl but if there’s any questions you have ask below. <3 <3
So I was reading chocolate covered katie the other day and she had an ultimate recipe for pizza hummus! It looked really good but beans don’t really sit well with me so I did a spin off.
So here is the Pizza Hummus (originally from CCK and can be raw)::::
2 tbs. tahini (I prefer raw but it is expensive)
2-4 tbs. nutritional yeast (which I love more recipes with that soon)
Few leaves fresh basil
Amount desired SEA salt (I usually like a little more)
1/4c plus 2 tbs favorite tomato sauce (can be homemade raw but Seeds of change is really good)
1 Tbs. cold pressed olive oil (opt but good):
Process in a food processer until no chunks left. Then serve with veggies, wraps, in salads, etc.
(Pic credit CCK — this will look a little different!)
Dinner Idea Grain/Bean Free Vegan Hummus Cheese Pizza!::: Would be really good on the cauliflower crust. Cauliflower crusts are all around the internet just google: vegan cauliflower crusts.
Be back soon with more.
Do you watch the superbowl? What are you making?
Hey you guys, today I am coming to you with a review of my new favorite supplement company, and I am very picky. It is incredible!!!!!
The brand name is Roots of Health you can’t find them in stores just online. They are SOOOO Pure all food and herbs nothing artificial at all, even down to the capsule which is literally just plant fiber and water! They are also organic. All the herbs they use are things you usually read about but no company takes the time to research, put in and spend the money on.
THEY ARE INCREDIBLE and SO affordable which I love that I can always afford them so I’m always feeling good. You usually don’t feel a supplement as fast as you feel the results from these.
*PS. Not affiliated or anything, I wish though;)*
Here are the reviews! There’s a few so bare with me, but they are all so different and meet different needs.
Acne no more: $16 for 100 capsules: This product is amazing for acne. It has herbs that help with detoxing the liver with herbs such as milk thistle and dandelion which works to help get rid of acne because acne is a buildup and toxins coming out through your skin.
Alkalizer: $16 for 100 capsules. This product is great to help boost alkalinity. I talk a lot about the importance of pH on here. This is a great product to help boost and kick start that journey for yourself. It has things such as coral calcium and magnesium to restore alkalinity.
Aloe Vera: $14 for 100 capsules. This is pure aloe which is a great anti-viral, anti-fungal, and great for healing the digestive system.
Back to Greens: $16 for 100 capsules. I think this is one of the most important for most people! If you are gonna get one this is the one to get it combines the healing power of greens with prebiotics. Starting ingredients such as Jerusalem artichoke and Chlorella.
Trace Minerals: $24 for a bottle. THIS IS fantastic too. It’s pure minerals. Did you know a lot of people cave into cravings due to mineral deficiencies. Yep. #fact… This is awesome it goes in your water and is amazing for athletes.
Eliminate: $16 for 100 capsules. Another product I use daily. It flushes stuff from everyone: liver, gallbladder, colon. If you struggle with bloating and/or constipation. This is for you. Staring ingredients such as senna leaf and habanero 200,000 H.U.
Energee: $20 for 100 capsules. This you can use as an adaptogen if your tired from hormone struggles or even as a natural “pre-workout.” I am yet to try this blend but the ingredient combo tells me it will be great with maca root and horny goat weed being some staring ingredient.
Immune Support: $14 for 90 capsules. Great to help boost the immune system. Staring ingredients such as reishi mushroom and aloe vera extract.
Inflammatory Support: $14 for 90 capsules. Another one I try to take daily. Inflammation is the root cause of all disease, and I really try to keep my inflammation levels down. It makes me feel so good and grounded and healthy. If you workout a lot your inflammation is high because exercise is a stress on the body even though it’s good for you. It stars ingredients such as ginger root, barley grass, and turmeric.
Primal Support: $20 for 90 capsules. This really helps you replenish your bodies natural bacteria. It helps with things such as digestion, fibromyalgia, and depression. I really want to try this one, it has ingredients such as plant minerals and yucca juice.
Real “C”: $14 for 100 capsules. We all know the benefits of viamin C but we don’t know is 99% aren’t absorbing the vitamin C we are taking. For real, things like absorbic acid are not good things to really be putting in your body. This is cheap and made with pure acerola berry and you won’t just pee it out.
I just want you to know that when I listed the ingredients that’s not all the ingredients just a few. If you want to get some, and you won’t regret it go to: Roots of Health Online.
To much health,
Have a good night <3 <3 <3
