Protein-Packed Skin Supporting Gummy Snacks

Posted on January 8, 2015

As I mentioned in my last post on bone broths, gelatin & collagen are super healthy for your skin, joints, hair and nails, and also supports your digestive system! These gummies are also packed with protein, making them a great (healthy) snack for my little girl, or anyone following a Paleo diet!

Basic Bone Broth

Posted on January 7, 2015



As I just posted about in my newsletter, I got super duper sick (first time in over 6 years) and it also happened to be the sickest I have been in my entire life. Coincidentally, my acupuncturist had just finished telling me about the health benefits of bone broths, and how good they were for supporting the immune system!

So, I made my very own bone broth for the first time. It was by far the easiest thing I have EVER made. And it tasted SO good! It's also amazingly good for you (which is why I made it in the first place). 

Chicken soup has long been known as the "Jewish Penicillin," and with good reason!

Vegan Hot Chocolate

On a cold winter night, there is nothing better than a warm, smokin' mug of hot cocoa.  It's so easy to make yourself and so much healthier for you than that packet stuff in the box or that loaded sugar powder out of a can.

Here are the 3 versions I made. Yes. I made ALL 3 in one night. Why not? Life's short. Live it ... with chocolate! :)

Easy Morning Green Juice

Posted on November 28, 2014

 

Drinking my easy, healthy green juice is my favorite way to start the day! I especially love the way I feel after I drink it and the good it does my body! I (or my hubby!) make this recipe most mornings. I HIGHLY recommend using all organic ingredients if possible (if not, peel the apple & cuc)! Your veggies will vary in size from time to time so add more or less, depending on their size and your taste. Enjoy and cheers to good health!
