I really couldn’t think of a better name for these delicious raw bars, so Hippie Mom Raw Bars it is!
These raw ingredients are nutrient-dense, high in fiber, loaded with antioxidants, healthy fats, protein, and satisfy that sweet tooth with flavor and fullness.
You can always make these your own by playing with different seeds, nut butters, and toppings!
Let’s do this:
Serving Size: 8-10 servings
Currently, my friends, this is my favorite dish!
It's warm, nourishing, packed with so many beautiful colors and nutrients.
Each ingredient is anti-inflammatory, fully of antioxidants, and created by Mother Nature herself.
It's not the easiest dish to make, BUT, it's worth every ounce of effort! I make a huge batch and will eat it for days and days.
I recently created this for the most amazing retreat I attended, and the attendees LOVED it! It's perfect to make for lots of people, or just to hoard it all yourself.
I serve it on top of soaked and cooked basmati rice. Before serving I add cilantro, minced ginger, and lime juice from one or two limes.
You can also use bone broth to up the ante and add more bioavailable nutrients that your body is craving!
Enough chit chat, let's do this!
Serving Size: 8
I have a hard time creating recipes as everything I make is just intuitively thrown together.
AND so many people who I’ve fed this dish to LOVE it so I did my work and measured it all out!
The thing is this salad is so delicious and nourishing.
Full of good fats, proteins, and yummy-ness this is a common dish we have at the Wells household.
Wild-caught salmon is so nourishing AND satiating! One of the most wonderful things it contains is anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids which are PARAMOUNT to good health!
Do you know what else I love about this concoction?
You can mix up the protein! I use this recipe for chicken, tuna, and salmon salads. The choice is yours!
You can also add SO many nourishing and nutrient-dense herbs.
Not only do herbs provide incredible flavors but are packed with SO many health benefits… it’s not even funny. You'd better not be...
When Fall comes it brings cooler weather inspiring us to warm up our dishes in the kitchen. This has to be one of my favorite cold-weather soups. Make a huge batch and nourish yourself for days!
I love adding in bone broth to add make the dish more nutrient dense. I’ll be posting my bone broth recipe soon too!
The main ingredient in this chili is of course…. GROUND BEEF!
Now let’s just visit the importance of sourcing meat.
If you’re here, you may not need education on the health and environmental issues conventional meat creates, however so many people don't realize that how they choose their meat is just as important as how they choose their partner in life! LOL
Personally, I only source and consume consciously raised grass fed AND grass finished beef.
My absolute FAVORITE source, if you are in New Mexico, Sweet Mercy Farms is a PHENOMENAL source for clean beef and pork in this area.
Even if you don't have access to local beef,...
Grocery shopping has become a mind-game.
Label reading is confusing and most of us just don’t spend the time to really understand what is actually in our food.
It takes a little time, patience, and practice to become an expert!
I highly recommend you investing time in reading every label on each product you buy.
Understanding exactly what you are ingesting and putting into your precious body is SO important!!!!
As you will see, it can be extremely difficult to know what food is simply by the ingredient list.
This is why it is paramount to discriminate what goes into your cart because those are exactly the foods that go into your body!
For example, you can buy peanut butter with tons of preservatives, additives and brain-starving processed oils or you can buy a jar with just peanuts and sea salt.
The choice is entirely up to you.
Being empowered and confident with label reading is one of the first steps in...
How many people do you know that suffer from digestive issues?
I know SO many and I was one of them for a long time.
Bloating, gassiness, indigestion, constipation, and countless other symptoms show up in our lives and many of us don't know understand the cause or a possible solution that doesn't include a pill or chemical concoction promising to make the symptom go away.
I want to share with you one of the most common things people consume in packaged foods/drinks that may seem healthy but unfortunately aren't.
Tell me, do you know about the different types and uses of gums in food?
LISTEN TO THIS BLOG POST HERE
Well, the majority of us don't.
I want to dive into gums a little here because they can be hard to avoid as many gums have names that sound potentially harmless.
I'll also explain why eliminating or reducing these additives is best for your health, especially your gut.
If you've been following me for a while, then you know...
Ridiculously beautiful human,
My husband and boys left for the annual school camping trip on Tuesday.
I chose to stay home.
I would usually attend these types of events and be excited to do so.
I love being in nature, around kids, and even though I'm a novice when it comes to camping, I'm down to give it a go.
A few days before they left, I vacillated on whether or not I should go.
Honestly, I had a bit of FOMO and really wanted to connect with this amazing community.
I knew I'd be missing out on some special times with my kids.
I wanted to be there to help and possibly be a buffer for my husband in any awkward social situations.
I was creating a lot of guilt around the thought of not going.
However, I knew that my cycle was coming.
The dates the trip were planned were the days leading up to my cycle.
I shared this with a few of the moms at...
One morning this past winter I went in to wake my boys up for school.
My eldest didn't look so well.
The whites of his eyes were red and he had bags under his eyes.
"Mom, I don't feel so good," he said.
He told me his stomach and head hurt.
I knew right away this wasn't a scheme to miss school and watch TV all day long.
I felt his head and he was hot.
Fevers are the body's defense mechanism to help it heal and fight the infection that's happening in the body.
One of the worst things we can do it stop it.
I drew him a bath, put some salts in, and plopped him in with a cold wet town upon his forehead.
He lay in the tub still and quietly moaning.
My heart hurt.
No mother ever wants to see her baby in pain.
Thankfully I trusted that I could take care of him and I...
I saw this posted on Instagram.
It reminds me of years ago when I was in a race.
LISTEN TO THE EMAIL HERE
A race to get healthier, happier, and more fulfilled.
I had no idea that I was racing against myself.
For so long I felt like I was just trying to keep up with the world.
My mind was flooded with to-dos and overwhelmed with self-criticism.
I could never live up to my own expectations.
I was hyper-focused on keeping up my image and social media and trying not to drown in my habitual and negative thinking.
I would rush through everything.
It was like I had very little time to do anything and everything.
I always felt overwhelmed and lived in my manic monkey mind.
Running myself ragged took its toll on my body, my relationships, and especially my relationship with myself.
My kids were suffering from all this rushing.
You can see this rushed energy everywhere.
The rush to...
Hello Generous Soul,
I think it's easy to forget the good in the world.
So many of us get wrapped up in what's not working that we can't even see the beauty of life around us.
The news, social media, maybe our neighbors and family tend to focus on reporting fear, illusions, and scarcity.
BREAKING NEWS always happening, media manipulating the masses into mass psychosis who have forgotten reality and see through a fuzzy and filthy lens.
Then we take our annoyed, frustrated, and scared personalities into the world and project it upon everyone else we forget that the veil of fear is easily taken off so that the truth can be revealed.
The truth that love is only what is real.
I'm reading one of my favorite books, so far, by Jack Kornfield, The Wise Heart, A Guide to the Universal Teachings of Buddhist Psychology.
It was recommended to me by my youngest's guide at school.
