For my GOLDEN Birthday on Sunday, I wanted to share with my friends and family a simple gluten-free, dairy-free dessert. I decided to branch out of the box this year and try RAW CARROT CAKE CUPCAKES by FullyRaw Kristina! 🙂 They are super simple and super tasty if you are a fan of the raw food lifestyle.Read More»
NatureRich greens are not just any greens … they are extra special greens. I say that for a number of reasons, but I’m going to highlight 5 of the main reasons I believe they are the best!Read More»
In honor of my Golden Birthday today and my husband’s birthday tomorrow, we decided we wanted to give away one of our very favorite things – NATURERICH GREENS! 🙂Read More»
HAPPY 1 MONTH ANNIVERSARY TO LIFE WITH GREENS!
Let’s celebrate, fresh style! 🙂
I talk about greens a lot. I LOVE them, eat them, buy them, drink them, promote them, give them, etc… I mean you really can’t ever have too many greens in your life, right?! They are the foundation to your health and amazing at increasing your pH! If you are unfamiliar with the awesomeness of greens or how important your pH is, then definitely check out those posts!
In honor of Life with Greens’ 1 month anniversary, and my birthday being on Sunday, I want to do a giveaway for 1 free jar of NatureRich Greens! These greens normally cost $49.00/jar, so it is definitely a valuable gift, people. 🙂 However, you can’t put a price on health (well technically I guess you could?!) so drink on!
When you’re at the grocery store and looking at product labels, you may think “low-fat,” “light,” “reduced-fat,” “non-fat” are going to be your healthier options, right? Not so fast! The low-fat type version may seem like the heathier version, but quite the opposite is true.
“Just because a product is labeled ‘fat-free’ or ‘lowfat’ doesn’t mean it’s healthier or even lower in calories,” says Jared Koch, a nutritionist in New York and the founder of Clean Plates. “In fact, most lowfat or fat-free foods will have sugar and chemicals to make up for the loss in taste, which renders them poor nutritional choices.”
Once upon a time, I wanted to be a vegetarian. I decided to give it a try… and lasted about 1 week. Who was I kidding? I love meat – especially a good burger! However, I have friends that are vegetarians and they deserve a non-soy-based “meat” substitute! It’s burger-inspired, earthy in taste, yet delicious enough to satisfy hungry carnivores (especially if you have avocado… you always need to have avocado, people).
Who wants to eat chemically-laden soy veggie “meat” when they can have the option to make their own version of vegetable burgers without all of the additives?! Not me. 🙂 I saw this recipe on The Biggest Much blog and I decided I HAD to give it a try! Play around with the ingredients, and feel free to add in various spices, herbs, etc. Don’t feel constrained by a recipe!Read More»
Today I wanted to share with you a delicious recipe that I think beats any bottled juice – hands down. Not only does it taste incredibly delicious, it’s loaded with powerful RAW nutrition (and enzymes)!
Incase you missed my “Misleading Monday” post about fresh juice versus bottled juice, it’s definitely worth the read! Avoid being misguided into thinking that bottled juices are a healthy alternative to fresh (raw) juice!
Strawberry Lime Tropical Paradise
Perfect for the start of spring, and swimsuit season around the corner! 😉
For this week’s “Misleading Monday” post, I want to address the differences between bottled juice and freshly extracted juice. I’ll be doing a post solely on the numerous benefits of raw juicing another day – because they are phenomenal – but for today I’ll be comparing bottled juice and raw (fresh) juice. 🙂 If you’re going to spend over $3.00 on what appears to be a healthy beverage, I want to tell you what’s in it, to see if it’s worth it!
I’m in love with sweet potatoes. I don’t understand why… well, actually I do. It’s because I load them up with mineral-rich Himalayan Sea Salt. These fries are the perfect mix of sweet and salty… they are addictive, and they are delicious. I shouldn’t feel bad though, because sweet potatoes host many vitamins and minerals (vitamin C, vitamin D, iron, magnesium, potassium, and carotenoids).Read More»
Mayonnaise. We need it for tuna, egg salad, and zesty lime dipping sauce – at least those are some of my uses for it! 😉 Since store-bought mayonnaise can be kind of pricey, and have hidden bad ingredients in it, I tend to make my own mayonnaise and store it in a mason jar for a good 1-2 weeks.
To save you time, and give you some “food for thought,” I decided to do a comparison between 4 different store-bought mayonnaises to see how they compare to each other. I highlighted the “bad” ingredients, and explained why they are considered bad underneath each label. 🙂Read More»
It seems that in recent years, salt has gotten a very bad reputation – yet, the human body cannot live without salt. In fact, our bodies rely on it to help fight fungus, bacteria, and viruses. It’s important in the regulation of blood pressure, the proper functioning of the nervous system and brain cells, metabolism, digestion, adrenal function, and cell membrane permeability. It’s necessary to produce hydrochloric acid in stomach for digestion, reduces aldosterone (hormone released by adrenal glands to help regulate blood pressure) secretion in our endocrine (hormones that regulate body’s growth, metabolism, and sexual function) system, and it helps our body eliminate toxic substances by keeping them in solution. There’s so much more! However, not everyone realizes that there are different “types” of salt (refined and unrefined), and these differences will directly affect your health.Read More»
