Remedies for PMS

Every girl has to deal with the “time of the month.” But what are natural remedies to help alleviate the pain?

Try a natural supplement like “Nature’s Way” PMS which contains Vitamin B6 & 5-HTP. Take 3 capsules daily with food.

Eat a bunch of cashews & walnuts since they contain high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.

Add flax seeds and chia seeds to your food.

Love always. <3

Raw Vegan Mini Snickers “Cheesecake” Two Ways || Gluten-Free, Refined Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free

I need to make this!

When it comes to quenching my husbands insatiable sweet tooth, I find the challenge intriguing. It never fails – around 8:00 pm he wanders into the kitchen and opens the pantry, giving it the “maybe if I glare at you long enough you’ll produce something sweet and delicious” stare.  I like to have some type of vegan treat made up for those moments, so he has a healthier option to go to than the typical desserts we both grew up eating.

Needless to say, when he found out there were snickers cheesecakes in the freezer he didn’t wait until 8:00 that night to eat them! I believe the term is “wolfed them down”. These were so fun to create, and the different variations you can make with this simple recipe are endless. So, let’s get started..

Feel good, live better!

Too often we get overwhelmed by everything going on around us. We forget to live in the moment and fully embrace each second of it. We are consumed by technology and exterior distractions. We need to feel good but live even better. Our lives should be full of laughter, good vibes, and positive inspiration from the people around us.

What if we just learn to let go? Live in the moment!

This is my go-to French Toast recipe.  It came about after I made an amazing dessert for Christmas dinner a couple years ago with poached pears and a cream cheese topping that had both vanilla and almond extract added to it.  The combination wowed me, and it sprung to mind when I made a French Toast breakfast a few days later.  Ohhhh yess, perfection.

I don’t normally need a certain brand in any recipe, but I no longer make French Toast with anything besidesAce Bakery Organic Granary bread.  I keep a loaf of it in the freezer so that if people stop by for breakfast I always can put something together.  It’s a glorious whole wheat loaf with tons of nuts and seeds — to my mind, the sunflower seeds are the best part.

And my dear friend, Pemma, is a super-fan of this recipe.  In fact, she special-requested…

Spiritual Awakening 101

I honestly believe that we all go through periods of “spiritual awakenings” meaning each of us become more in tune with our higher divine purpose. When it feels like everything is stagnant thats a period when people begin to develop into who they truly want to be. It takes those periods to realize and reevaluate what we need in our lives whether it’s career orientation, relationships, personal goals, or/and changes to our environment. It’s very important to listen to your intuition and do what feels right for you and only you! I usually like to start with this short 10 minute guided meditation every morning.

Much love,
