Granola has a bad rap.
Most store-bought are full of processed oils, tons of sugars, and ingredients that aren't recognizable by Mother Nature.
Many also have GMO's which wreak havoc on our digestive system and make pesticides even harder for the body to break down!
I have yet to find a legit granola I like.
So of course, I had to make my own!
This is a yummy granola recipe I love to eat with a clean whole milk and 100% grass fed yogurt and then top it with fruit like sliced bananas and fresh blue berries.
It's also super yummy to just eat it like cereal with your homemade nut and seed milks!
It's super quick to create and simple to throw together, bake, and enjoy.
Don't get too caught up on having ALL the ingredients. You can sub different nuts and seeds or just make it even more simple because sometimes less is more!
Okay, let's do this!
Ingredients: (all organic ingredients recommended)
I write this with love and in hope to support all humanity to understand that supplements are not the next “quick fix”.
If you are here, than you probably are steering clear of prescription drugs and looking for other ways to support your health, specifically your immune system, and I am here to tell you that supplements can support you but what you eat is the most important “supplement” you should be focusing on!
The number one question I have from clients is “What supplement will help _____ (symptom)?”. Unfortunately, regardless if we are more health-focused or not, many of us still believe in the pill for every ill… and now we are seeing it with supplements.
Now, don’t get me wrong I’d prefer supplements to prescriptions any day of the week, but they are not the answer. .
When we get to the root of symptoms we support the WHOLE body, rather than just a part.
Our body is literally a universe made of trillions of cells, more...
I'm always looking for delicious and nourishing dishes that not only make me feel good, heal my gut, but taste freaking amazing!
This miso bone broth is SO simple, requires only 5 ingredients! Well only 2 if you nix the gelatin and sea salt! Gelatin is totally optional, it just provides more support and healing for the gut!
Learning how to make homemade salad dressings is such an important life skill...
...okay well maybe not a life skill but it sure does making eating and dipping veggies easier, more nutrient (yes eating veggies with ample fat is SO important), and SO much more delicious.
The trick to making delicious salad dressing are these components:
If you aren't already familiar with GMO's this post is for you!
GMO's are one of humans biggest mistakes. What was once thought would be an idea that changed the world and fed the hungry, became one of the biggest lies that the world has ever known.
GMO's are not safe. They have been linked to numerous chronic diseases. Before we dive into the health detriments of these organisms and the chemicals that accompany them, let's get a better understanding of what they actually are.
These are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a lab through genetic engineering. This creates combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and virus genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.
Sound appetizing? No, this is the epitome of messing with Mother Nature. Which has NEVER ended well.
While many countries like, Europe, have...
This is a simple salad that can be thrown together in a matter of minutes. It's so good for digestion and giving us the fiber we need for a healthy gut!
Kale has so many health benefits! It promotes detoxification, skin health, has tons of antioxidants, and has ample fiber... which we all need more of in our diets! Pair kale with lemon juice, also super detoxifying, onion, which our gut bugs love to eat, and extra virgin olive oil, the healthy fat... you have magic!
The nuts add more healthy fat to help you absorb all of those amazing fat-soluble vitamins!
The trick to making curly kale easier to eat, massage it with oil! It breaks down the hard fibers! Sautéing kale is also one of my favorite side dishes... I'll post that recipe soon too.
Okay enough chit-chat... let's do this:
"Healthy skin is a reflection of overall wellness." - Howard Murad M.D.
Not only is our skin the largest organ in our body (16% of our total body weight) it protects us from the world around us. Our skin is always letting us know what's going on in the inside. It is truly a reflection of how our body's systems are operating.
Have you heard of face mapping?
Face mapping is an ancient medicinal technique that makes connections between problems on the face and overall health. If you want to learn more check out this article by Dr. Axe, Face Mapping; What Your Skin May Be telling You.
Paying attention to what our skin is telling us is vital! We are always receiving messages about what's going on inside of us. Symptoms are simply messengers urging us to pay attention and take action! Instead of opting for over the counter meds or countless and expensive doctors appointments, we must learn how to support our body with what it needs and help heal from the...
This herbaceous salad is one nourishing powerhouse meal! Loaded with TONS of nutrients, antioxidants, polyphenols, and most importantly it's fucking delicious.
Summer and salads are meant for each other. There is nothing like a crisp, cold, and satiating salad in the summer evenings. I ALWAYS double the batch. This is a huge batch and fed my husband and I twice, with about one serving left over.
I added lots of herbs to this salad. Parsley is super rich in antioxidants, has antibacterial properties, super rich in nutrients that supports eye health, and is high in vitamin C!
Basil is also an important component in the salad and dressing. Basil is great for digestion, anti-inflammatory, high in antioxidants, is great for our skin, and promotes a health gut! It's also a beautiful addition to make this salad even more freaking yummy!
Last but not least, I added just a bit of fresh oregano. Oregano is one powerful herb. It's a really great antibacterial agent, has...
This is such a simple and delicious dish. I always make extra, so I can eat more of it tomorrow. I always add green chile, I'm from NM, and it's an absolute staple! You can always up the spice with red peppers or even jalapenos. Make it easy and batch cook, so you can eat more tomorrow too!
Just a little insight, all my meals consist of four important components:
This chicken fajita salad checks all the boxes, especially number 4! I love meals that not only taste fucking delicious, but are satiating and savory. Okay, let's do this.
