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 | Alkalinizing Low-Sugar Green Smoothie

Screen Shot 2014-06-20 at 11.51.12 AMToday’s recipe is an amazing guest post from my friend Laura (her Etsy shop is yummy, check out all the treats she creates with love and high-vibe super foods). This smoothie is rad and it will quench your summer cravings. Enjoy. Take it away Laura.

Lately we’ve (meaning Katie & I) have been trying to reducing our sugar intake. For me one of my biggest obstacles in cutting out sugar has been finding a breakfast smoothie alternative.  Most smoothies  are loaded with high sugar fruit, including bananas, pineapple, mango, etc., and while they’re delicious, they’re high in sugar which for me right now is what I’m choosing to reduce so I was determined to create one for us that was equally as delicious but lower in sugar and here’s what I came up with for us. 

From my own trial and error, I developed this low-sugar green smoothie I hope you and your skin will enjoy!

Alkalinizing Low-Sugar Green Smoothie

Ingredients:

1 c. filtered water/coconut water

Juice of one lime

1 T. chia seeds

1 tsp. coconut oil

¼ avocado

1 granny smith, chopped

½ c. fresh mint leaves

1 c. greens of choice (I use what’s on hand—that might be spinach, kale, beet greens, whatever!)

3 coconut water ice cubes (regular is fine if you don’t have coconut—it just will be less sweet)

Directions:

Blend all ingredients in the order listed.  Pour.  Serve!

She’s not only one of my very first ever WWRadio guests, but also a guru when it comes to living Wellness Wonderland when you don’t have an abundance of time. I credit much of her work for helping me find my Wellness Wonderland. What sets Robyn apart from the sea of health couches that floods the internet, is her willingness to make healthy living accessible to anyone regardless of where you’re at. Robyn has worked with everyone from busy moms (including my own) to successful entrepreneurs to our mutual guru Gabby Bernstein.

Are you into in healthy eating and living but simply have no clue where to begin? Maybe you want to live in your Wellness Wonderland, but you’re just not sure exactly where that is or you’re too busy to figure it out of know what to buy. Luckily, Robyn has your Roadmap to Wonderland. It’s called the Rockstar Roadmap & it’s the most awesome program I’ve ever seen in my life.

If you wish someone would just tell you exactly what to eat, buy, cook, and do. This program is for you. 

She breaks it all down in a concise and fun way. Teaching you healthy doesn’t mean “give up all that is wonderful”.  It means to take simple steps to impact your health in a big way. You can still be a rockstar AND be your healthiest you.

She’s introducing a new free video training series to get you started right away.  The Rockstar Roadmap will be  your path to Wellness Wonderland.   Have you wanted to know how to get back on track after falling out?  What about how to eat when you’resurrounded by unhealthy options?  If so, these videos are for you.

Here’s what she’s going to cover with you in these videos: 

– The one thing you need to know to be able to eat healthy no matter how busy you are.

– Three secrets to fending off your cravings – even in front of a plate of chips!

 – Four solid tools that will help you get to your healthiest weight without sacrifice (yes, YOU can do this)

– And, oh my gosh, a way of eating a vegetable that I had never heard of before in the yummiest way you can imagine that is now legit my favorite veggie to eat! 

Let me know below if you have any questions about the Roadmap videos! & last but not least I’ll turn it over to our Rockstar herself, Robyn for a recipe just for Wonderland! OMG!

Foodie Friday | A Recipe For Skin Radiance

Final RR CoverYou know I love to use my kitchen for most of my beauty, skin, and hair care routine from videos I’ve made like this or this. However, what you may not know is that this woman a past WWRadio guest, Alexis Wolfer is actually the queen of this. Her new book, The Recipe for Radiance is all about how to discover ways to use your kitchen ingredients in your beauty routine. You’ll love her fresh perspective and unique super creative ideas. To find out more about the radiant author herself make sure you listen to our WWRadio conversation here, it was a great one. Today Alexis, the beauty behind The Beauty Bean and author of this amazing book is visiting Wonderland to share one of her favorite recipes from the book (& mine too). It’s a tool that easy, your skin will love, and will naturally remove stretch marks.

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • ¼ cup manuka honey

Directions:

  • In a medium pot, boil the sweet potato in water until easily pierced with a fork, approximately 20 minutes.
  • Drain and transfer to a food processor. Add the honey and blend until smooth and well combined
  • Let it cool to room temperature before applying a thick layer to stretch marks. Let it sit for 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
  • Repeat daily for best results

Notes: Retinols may be one of the go-to prescription treatments for healing stretch marks topically, but they cannot be applied during pregnancy. Retinols, though, get their power from Vitamin A—the same Vitamin A found in sweet potatoes! In this recipe, the sweet potato is combined with manuka honey, which has both anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and has been show to help stimulate collagen production and the growth of new tissue.
