Foodie Friday | PB & J Breakfast Tacos Recipe

Happy 4th of July! Today’s recipe is somewhat patriotic looking with the red & blue berries and if you add some coconut flakes we’ve got the entire US of A  color scheme accounted for. The other day I had nothing in the fridge and didn’t think this week was worth grocery shopping since I’d being going home for the holiday. I woke up starving for breakfast and wanted to eat rather than drink my smoothie so I took my smoothie ingredients and made these tacos instead. This is so simple, refreshing, and light. It requires no equipment and very few ingredients.

Ingredients:
-Romain Leaves or Collard Greens 
-Berries (organic frozen of fresh) 
-Nut Butter of Choice (May Favorites are Pumpkin Seed or Hemp Seed) 
-Optional Add-ins: coconut flakes, sea salt, cinnamon etc.

Foodie Friday | My Fav Supplement To Take

This week’s video is about one supplement I take everyday and recommend everyone take. Not only because of the health benefits, but also because it’s a blast to take! Watch the video to find out why!

Tea Party | My Top Six Teas & Why {video}

Today’s bonus video is all about tea. As I said in the video, tea is like a hug in a cup and there’s nothing like a warm beverage to warm you up from the inside out. Here are my top six teas I discuss in the video & where you can find them. To find out why I love them watch above! & if you like it please subscribe!

Tea-hug-in-a-cup

1.  Strawberry Cuppa Chocolate Tea awesome with a splash of homemade coconut milk and a drop of stevia. Caffeine-free & tastes like a chocolate covered strawberry!

2. Numi Savory Tea– tastes kind like broth & very different than most teas, but I love it! Comes in Tomato Basil as well!

3. Tulsi Tea Sweet Rose– I love the taste of this tea but the health benefits are even better. Tulsi Tea is stress relieving because Tulsi is the herb Holy Basil which lowers stress in the body. The tagline on the box says it all, “stress relieving & magical.”

4. Yogi Tea– the fortune cookie of teas. Quotes on every tea bag and tons of amazing flavors. What’s your fav?

5. Aveda Tea– super sweet, caffeine-free, and good for digestion. Great to have after dinner or anytime a day.

6. Yerbe Mate Tea– this is a great option if you’re hooked on caffeine this is a wonderful source of natural caffeine. Comes in tons of flavors. More info on Mate- listen to my podcast with Jessica Ortner.

HOW-TO CLEAR SKIN NATURALLY

I’ve been healing my skin for a while now and since this last video my natural skin care routine has evolved quite a bit from all that I’ve learned, so check out the above video to learn more. Let me know what’s working for you or if you have any questions for me. Below are the links to everything I show in the video.

Coconut Oil best thing to remove eye make-up.

Magic Mitt the most natural way to remove make-up with only water.

Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap use this gentle organic soap to wash your hands before you touch your skin at anytime.

Camu Camu superfood super high in vitamin C. & here’s Culinary Karma’s salad dressing with camu camu in it.

MSM– great supplement for healing your skin.

Witch hazel – a natural astringent making it antibacterial on skin and great for acne prone skin. I use it on a cotton pad first thing in the morning.

Estroblock the supplement that really helps clear hormonal acne.

Hemp Oil– the only thing I use to wash my face, works like a charm.

The only downside of cleansing with Hemp oil is that since it lives in the refrigerator it isn’t too convenient for travel (just use jojoba oil for that, it’s second best).

Pure neem oil– an antibacterial herb is potent and transformative in healing pimple, just dab some on when you feel the sensation of a new blemish and it will take care of it.

Tarte Mineral makeup is made Amazonian clay and has had healing benefits on my skin and will help you to not be stressed out by your appearance while your skin is in the process of healing.

Lemon– just simple raw lemon juice directly on the skin is great for reducing redness and scarring.

Foodie Friday {three} recipe video: Watermelon Slurpee

(if video isn’t working, view it here!)

Nothing says summer quite like a big huge pink fruit. I love everything about watermelon. From the juice to the seeds to the texture, it is one of my favorite things to eat. And isn’t it great that something so tasty and sweet is super healthy for you? Win win!

Watermelon has many healing properties for the body, including the great anti-aging effects, because it is so high in collagen-building vitamin C, vitamin A and the antioxidant lycopene (even more lycopene than tomatoes).

Remember that organic, seeded watermelon is the best – not only does it taste better, but seedless fruits are hybridized by us to make them sterile and often are also sprayed with chemicals. While the seeds may make a bit of extra hassle, it’s totally worth it and how would you have a good seed spitting contest without them. And don’t worry if you swallow one, you won’t grow a watermelon in your stomach. Eating them is actually good for you since they are extremely high in b vitamins. Detoxifying!

Consisting of 92% water, this fruit is fittingly named  and extremely cleansing.  To fully benefit from it’s properties, it is best eaten alone, in the morning, and on an empty stomach.  But where’s the fun in that?

While this recipe may not be the most detoxing form of the fruit, it sure is refreshing, easy, & healthy.  I know fall’s around the corner and your taste buds may already be longing for pumpkin, squash, and cider, but give this recipe a chance and cheers to the end of summer with the season’s favorite fruit!

Ingredients:

Watermelon (about four cups or so, *FROZEN)

almond milk (about two cups or so)

*note: The watermelon must be chopped small enough to fit in your blender and it must be frozen for this to turn out slushie. If not it will just be liquid. So unfortunately you’ll have to plan ahead and cut the watermelon then freeze it in containers that their mold would fit in the blender. What I would do was get a watermelon, cut it up and eat as much as I possibly could fresh and whatever was left over I’d cut in pieces and freeze to have on hand to make this recipe whenever I wanted (it never lasted in the freezer very long).

Directions: pour in almond milk first, then frozen watermelon and blend until slushie!

Have fun!
