Traditionally I have always used table salt while cooking in the kitchen and recently opted to make a healthier switch from table salt, to Himalayan sea salt! Aside from its culinary uses, pink Himalayan sea salt can be beneficial for supplying the body with essential minerals and electrolytes, improving immunity, re-hydrating the body, reducing inflammation and increasing circulation, reduces blood pressure, and aids with weight loss.
Protein is a core nutrient our body counts on; did you know that protein makes up every cell in our body? Our body relies on protein to create enzymes, hormones, bones, muscle, blood, cartilage, skin, hair, and nails. Protein is a macro-nutrient, meaning our body relies heavily on these nutrients in order to be healthy!
I love ice cream!! But, I don't think ice cream loves me back because I never feel very good after I eat it. Plus, ice cream isn't exactly "healthy"... such a bummer. At least it WAS a bummer, until I found this healthy ice cream recipe!! Yes, this ice cream really is healthy. Seriously. It's only made from two ingredients, bananas and natural peanut butter! It's so soft and creamy and all you have to do is freeze some bananas ahead of time and then blend them up! Right out of the blender it takes like soft serve ice cream, or you can put it in the freezer for a couple of hours and get that grocery store ice cream texture. Either way, it's a win-win. I used natural peanut butter, but of course you can use whatever nut butter you'd like.
I am always looking for something new and nutritious for breakfast and I seriously fell in love when I found recipes similar to this one on Pinterest! This recipe is so genius because the ingredients can be swapped out with your favorite ingredients as long as you stick with the basic measurements. I used frozen strawberries and bananas but you can trade these out for whatever frozen fruit you’d like. I also used unsweetened almond milk because that’s a favorite of mine, but you can switch that out too. Another reason why I love this recipe is because it has CHIA SEEDS! Chia seeds are the best because they have so many benefits. They are full of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, fiber, iron and calcium! They also help you feel more full and reduce your appetite so you can easily make it from breakfast to lunch with minimal snacking.
Aren't these salad skewers so cute? They are pretty healthy too! They are also the EASIEST thing to make. All it takes is grilling some chicken and then throwing the skewers together with the other totally easy ingredients. I pretty much threw this recipe together in about 30 minutes (including grilling time!) and I was so happy with the result!
Making healthy choices on a daily basis can actually be easy. But what about when it comes to your pets? I don't know if you saw my previous post, but it's kind of scary how unregulated the food we're feeding our pets can be. I've tried to keep it plain and simple for you here.
There's nothing quite like avocado toast. However, it's super easy to take avo toast and turn it into a calorie and carb BOMB.
I wanted to share one that I make daily. I love this one because it's full of all the good fats, proteins, and fiber. Every piece of it is "good for you." And it's not an overload of carbohydrates and/or calories. AND IT TASTES GOOD AF! Oh, and it's super simple (did I say that?).
Let's face it, being healthy is expensive business. I don't see it getting better anytime soon, so until then.... DIY. I mean, I didn't invest in this Vitamix for nothing.
These CCB Wellness Shots are EVERYTHING you need to kick and prevent those bugs out there. If you do NOTHING else to be healthy, do this. Thank me later.
We are all BUSY. I actually can't remember a time when life wasn't going 90 miles an hour. I like it that way, for the most part. I also love to stay fit, active and eat very well. Unfortunately, feeding myself nutritious foods takes either 1) a lot of time &/or 2) a lot of money.
But, I have a solution.
