GUT HEALTHY POTATO SALAD

hippie kitchen salads Jun 15, 2020

My inspiration in life is to make delicious comfort food as healthy as possible. I mean, I don’t want to live my life not enjoying the fullness of food! It’s a gift to source, create, and consume food! I see it as an act of love, to myself, my family, and my friends.

Take this potato salad for example. When you cook and cool potatoes they transform into resistant starch. This creates less stress on blood sugar! Resistant starch is not digested in the small intestine, so it won’t raise glucose. Our guts need to be fed and resistant starch ferments in the large intestine feeding our good bacteria in the gut. Just this process of cooking and cooling potatoes has a HUGE impact on how our bodies respond to the potatoes. Isn’t that fascinating? I think so.

So the trick to making healthier potato salad, is to cook the potatoes in advance. I like to cool...

MY BODY IMAGE STORY

Uncategorized Jun 12, 2020

Instead of talking about the virus going around, let’s talk small boobs, shall we?

This post and picture are NOT in my comfort zone, like clean and conscious eating are… but I think this is an important message and story to share as so many women (and men too!) suffer from body image issues.

I have lived most of my life wishing I had another body. A body with bigger boobs, a smaller nose, a more symmetrical face… you know, I dreamed of metamorphosing into one of the models and movie stars that I glorified and compared myself to daily. Every ounce of information I received growing up reinforced how imperfect I was. I remember reading Style and Teen Magazine in high school and every time I put it down, I’d feel sick. I needed to work out, diet, and buy new clothes.

Born with small breasts, I was always stuffing my bras, as young as I could remember. I would buy them with as much padding as possible. One time a guy I was dating even told me that I was...

BEET, APPLE, FENNEL SALAD

The liver is the most important detoxification organ in our body! It works DAY and NIGHT to take care of us, so it’s paramount we take care of it!

This salad is created with nourishing plants that support the liver and other organs that work in tandem with it. The star ingredient in this salad is beets and beet greens. High in betalains, beets helps reduce inflammation, protect against oxidative stress and can help reduce risk of liver damage. They are also a wonderful source of fiber and vitamin C, which naturally cleanse the digestive system.

Also, I love using cold pressed flaxseed oil as it is high in Omega 3 Fatty Acids (essential to life), can help help improve gut and skin health. I add it to all my homemade salad dressings and smoothies!

Okay let’s do this!

Ingredients:

1 large beet, grated

1/2 apple, grated

1/2 large fennel bulb, thinly sliced

1 cup beet greens, finely chopped

Juice from 2 whole lemons

3-4 Tbsp of organic, cold-pressed flaxseed oil

Directions:

CILANTRO-INFUSED GUACAMOLE

Thank God we aren’t scared of healthy fats anymore! Fats are VITAL to our health as EVERY CELL MEMBRANE is made of fat (about 50%!)! Many of us consume low quality fats like processed vegetable oils, which are highly oxidized and extremely unhealthy. How do you think our cells feel about that? Huh?

Avocados present us with so much goodness. Fat, fiber, and protein! This is why guacamole could literally be a meal! Adding lots of cilantro just ups this snack, or meal, to provide your body with more antioxidants and actually assists the body in it’s detoxifying efforts. Thus, adding these two nutrient dense foods together is… well brilliant.

P.S. Note this recipe contains raw garlic

BRAISED RED CABBAGE WITH APPLES AND ONIONS

his super simple and nutritious side dish, is one I often overlook. I usually always buy a big head of cabbage every week… and when it’s still lurking around in the fridge after a few days, I either make my Asian cabbage slaw or this warming recipe as a perfect side dish for any clean meat!

THE MOST POWERFUL PHRASE WE USE IN OUR LIVES

Uncategorized Jun 01, 2020

Do you know what the most powerful words are, and what you put after them shapes your reality?


“I AM ______.”


For so long I was in a “I am SO tired” mode. I was tired of motherhood, the monotony of life, and felt joyless. I was searching and searching for reasons I was in this fucking funk. I was miserable and creating misery around me. It was straining my relationships and causing our sacred space at home to feel toxic. I just couldn’t get out of this space.


Now, I knew intellectually how powerful thoughts are… and even more how the thoughts that become words are the most powerful force available to us.
Words are energy! They have the ability to heal, help, and create a better world. We can cchoose to create encouragement, peace, and love, or use them for our and other’s destruction.


Most of us use our words unconsciously. I was bringing my stories and habitual thinking, based around scarcity and conflict, into my world. I was manifesting...

SOURDOUGH BUTTERMILK WAFFLES

breakfast hippie kitchen May 20, 2020

Who doesn’t love waffles? I mean really?

If you haven’t figured it out yet, when it comes to food, I make every bite that goes into my body nutrient-dense and the most nourishing as I can. When so many people are against grains and carbs these days, I rebel and say “YES YOU CAN HAVE BREAD, WAFFLES, PANCAKES, MUFFINS, etc.” It’s all about how you prepare them! We are moving back to tradition and slow food my friends.

Like with everything we eat, there is always a way to source better ingredients and create our fuel in a way that shifts it into information our body can receive and metabolize.

My kids love waffles. I mean LOVE them. For a long time I researched on how to create waffles so that I felt good about feeding my little spawns. Behold Sourdough Buttermilk Waffles.

Using a sourdough starter and organic and grass-fed whole milk buttermilk creates a light and fluffy mixture that manifests into magical yummy-ness.

If you’ve never created a...

EGGS. GOOD OR BAD?

Uncategorized May 17, 2020

Remember when eggs were demonized as having too much cholesterol? Me too. I love using this analogy for people who still think that cholesterol is bad… blaming cholesterol is like blaming firefighters for starting the very fire they are putting out! Cholesterol is a healing agent in the body!

In her book, Put Your Heart in Your Mouth, Dr. Natash Campbell-McBride, she writes: “Cholesterol is an essential part of any cell membrane; in fact, in many cells of the body almost half of the cell wall is made out of cholesterol.” She also notes that “It is an established scientific fact that the body uses fats and cholesterol as raw materials for building cells and tissues, which include ALL healing processes.”

We NEED cholesterol. It’s vital to our overall health and well being. It’s vital this information gets out there! I highly recommend her book if you or someone you know suffers from or has suffered from high blood pressure,...

SEA SALTED DARK CHOCOLATE CHIP NUT BUTTER COOKIES

Uncategorized May 11, 2020

Here’s my theory on treats. Enjoy them. Make them from real ingredients and opt for organic as much as you can.

I mean if you’re going to put any information into your body… give it what it can read. Making your own treats is much more healthy than anything out of a package. You know what’s in them. Perfect.

Okay enough talk. Let’s do this:

This is the recipe I found and initially used… but below is my spin on it.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup Gluten free flour. I love Bob’s Red Mill’s Paleo Baking Flour.
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats. My favorite is One Degree Sprouted Rolled Oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (a touch more to top cookies) – drop iodized salt and get yourself some nice pink sea salt. It’s has trace minerals our bodies needs, rather than being stripped of them via chemical processing.
  • 6 tbsp grass fed butter (Kerry Gold all the way) or you can use coconut oil. Butter to be room temp. Coconut oil softened like...
