Make Your Own!

I used to be a die-hard store bought protein powder connoisseur. But it can be expensive and you really don’t know who processed it or where it was processed.  So I just make my own delicious protein shakes! This one has hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds grounded into powder, walnuts, no strain homemade almond milk, unsalted unsweetened sunflower butter, a date, and cacao. I’m at the age where I have to keep my metabolism in check and this protein dense shake helps me. You’ll never hear me say I’m too old to do this or that. Off to the trails with Ginger and Zen! Breathe with the flow of life…

Mouth Watering Warm Season Go-To Meal

17991715_415241958832532_8878646695348235115_o

I made this raw Pad Thai and it was So good! My mouth was watering from all of the flavors. I played around with it to suit my taste buds. It was one of those recipes that I didn’t think was going to be so delicious. My body was pleased with the outcome. How did you feed your body today?

Raw Vegetable Pad Thai

  • 1 large green zucchini
  • 1 large yellow zucchini
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1 cup red cabbage (100g)
  • 1 cup bean sprouts (100g)
  • 1 green onion
  • 1 tbsp cashews, crushed

Spicy Sauce

  • ¼ cup raw almond butter (60g)
  • 1.5 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
  • ½ lime juiced
  • 1 tbsp ginger, grated
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 dates
  • 1 tbsp red pepper flakes
  • 3-4 tbsp water
Instructions
  1. Prepare the spicy sauce. Add the raw almond butter, Nama Shoyu, lime juice, ginger, garlic, dates, red pepper flakes to the blender and mix until smooth. Keep adding more water to thin the sauce if it is too thick. I omitted the Nama Shoyu.
  2. To make the vegetable noodles: spiralize the zucchinis and carrot with a spiralizer or cut them into thin ribbons using a vegetable peeler. Slice the cabbage into strips with a chef’s knife. Add the veggie noodles to a large bowl and top with bean sprouts. I used kelp noodles instead.
  3. Pour the spicy sauce over the vegetable noodles, or in my version, kelp noodles,  and toss.
  4. Sprinkle thinly sliced green onion and crushed cashews over the pad thai to garnish.

Silky Smooth

If you’ve ever wondered why my skin is so super shining it’s because I bathe in natural oils and butters! I can’t get enough of them. I make my own oil blends, body butters, and salves. I’m playing around with this one. It’s a delicious body scrub made with brown sugar,  Cupuacu butter, shea butter, babassu oil, and a touch of geranium. My skin is screaming, OMG! I tend to go by feel with most of my recipes but I will come back with one soon. Stay tuned…

Benefits of Nutrient-Dense Juice

Image result for juicing images green leafyJuicing is one of the best ways to easily assimilate whole fruits and vegetables.  When juicing, 90% of the nutrients and minerals are taken to the cells of the body within 15 minutes.  This allows your body to use less energy required for digestion and allows the liver to detoxify or cleanse as the body takes rest, which helps to enhance your body’s natural detoxification system.

It is also a natural beauty enhancer from the inside out.  Everything lies in the gut and when you drink nutrient-dense fresh pressed juice, your body is cleansed, detoxified, and beautified.  The chlorophyll that is found only in plants has a special structure that encourages the body’s ability to produce hemoglobin, which aids the delivery of rich oxygen to your cells.                                   When your body is filled with rich oxygen, it shows!  Health Warriors juice up!

Small but Mighty!

Spicy microgreens with homemade avocado and artichoke dressing. Microgreens possess significantly higher nutrient densities than mature leaves. You can grow them outside or inside, with the right tools. I can’t say enough about these little green goodies! I can feel the nutrients flowing through my body every time I eat them. Cheers to microgreens! #mustard #arugula #radish #amaranth #eatclean #vitamins #vegetables#medicine #healthy #nutritionishealth#healthiswealth #yourtemple #antioxidants#immunesystem #energy #mtbecker#livegrowsustain #share #receive
