21 Day Sugar Detox and more!

21 Day Sugar Detox and more!

Author:

Posted: October 16, 2014

I jokingly mentioned doing a 21 DSD on  a facebook post a while back, and what ended up happening was a lot more.  Now, this wasn’t my first rodeo,  I’ve done the program twice before this point,  and so going forward I decided to elaborate on my intention.  Maybe because my body was ready to detox in other ways too.  So I moved forward (without sugar, without alcohol and without dark chocolate…I know, I already said sugar, but DC has a category of it’s own in my world) for 21 days. Well, it was actually 20 days because one night […]

Party Gummies with Native Nectar Juice!! (The WAY better version of a Jello Shot)

Party Gummies with Native Nectar Juice!! (The WAY better version of a Jello Shot)

Have you ever had the most amazing idea and then it fails.  And it fails again and again and again AND again!?!  Well that happened to me when I had the brilliant idea to introduce you to the amazing Native Nectar juice through some Par-tay Gummies.  Remember Jello shots?  Well, I thought hey,  I’ve got a great recipe for gummies so lets just swap out some ingredients, add a little alcohol and done.  I mean hell, if you’ve got a healthy juice, grass fed gelatin and maybe a dash of kombucha, the alcohol pretty much doesn’t even count!  You’ve detoxed while […]

Have you guys ever taken hot yoga?  It’s pretty amazing.  The thing is that you sweat buckets.  Like a WHOLE lot.  It makes you feel like you’ve really detoxed, and mostly you probably smell like you did too.  I’ve been doing it now for a quite a while but obviously I haven’t learned all the rules.  Like how you shouldn’t wear gray pants.  Normally I do my hot yoga thing and then come straight home and shower because I’m so rank.  But last week I had to make a quick run into the grocery store before I made it home.

I heart camping.  I was especially excited to write this post after our camping trip and share some of our go to camping food.  Although it was good fun, there were some challenges along the way,  and so I decided to compile a little list for you.  You can check it out at the bottom of this post.  But first, here is what we ate and the pics are below. Friday-Dinner- steak, roasted carrots, skillet potatoes, and salad Saturday- Breakfast- eggs and bacon. Lunch- paleo wraps with lunch meat, mustard and kraut, carrot sticks. Dinner- Sausage skillet with onions, mushrooms […]

Homemade Sports Drink

Homemade Sports Drink

It’s hot.  And I’m sweaty.  Do you ever feel like have a cold drink after being outside in the summer or after a good workout?  Just water doesn’t sound good and you know sports drinks are full of crap, you know that right?  I mean flame retardants in your drink just never seemed liked a good idea to me.  Not to mention the food coloring, high fructose corn syrup, and other food additives…blah!  It’s super easy to make your own and only takes 4 simple ingredients.  #1 Water.  #2 Himalayan Sea Salt- this is where you’ll get 83 different minerals […]

Coconut Milk Whipped Cream

Coconut Milk Whipped Cream

This is one of the BEST treats out there, especially topped on some fresh strawberries!  And since “tis the season”  for berries up here in NWA you should make some of this pronto!  So the deal with coconut milk is it can totally vary brand to brand.  Of course it’s best to buy organic but even that doesn’t always steer you clear of some of the extra additives that might be added.  I typically stick only to Natural Value brand because it is just straight full fat coconut milk.  Through many experiments of making coconut milk whipped cream with Thai Organic, […]

Liver Shot- The BEST energy drink

I’m telling you this will change you life.  Forget the toxic energy drinks out there, forget that morning coffee.  This is the real deal.  In case you missed my previous post on all the amazing benefits of organ meat you can check it out here.  Also some of my favorite bloggers have written some great articles on the benefits of liver here and here. So where in the world did I get the outrageous idea to start shooting down some liver?  Well, even though I know all the amazing benefits of eating organ meat, I really am only able to […]

Sneaky Organ Meat

Sneaky Organ Meat

Don’t stop reading yet.  Organ meat is one of the best ways to get tons of nutrients that you cannot get in any other food.  Did you know that organ meat was considered the prized meat of many traditional cultures?   In fact, some tribes only ate the organ meat and tossed the lean muscle meat! Organ meat is extremely rich in all fat soluble vitamins, essential fatty acids and tons of trace minerals.  Not that long ago families would eat liver and onions once a week.  Now recommendations have gone against this practice due the fear of toxins in […]

I was so lucky I had the opportunity to attend Paleo f(x) in Austin last weekend.  Austin holds a special place in my heart because I grew up right outside of the city in a town called Round Rock.  So when I saw the conference was being held there, and my parents could watch the littles for us it was a WIN WIN.  Not to mention my favorite ice cream place is there, Lick Ice Cream, but unfortunately we didn’t make it there during the right hours…waaahhhhhh!!!!  I did make up for missing my ice cream by eating at a local […]

Peppermint Fudge

Peppermint Fudge

I’ve always loved fudge…well, who am I kidding, I’ve always loved a lot of things.  But fudge is always considered extra special to me.  I literally turned my kitchen in to a treat factory over these past couple of weeks.  I had this grand idea to make valentines love boxes – see below It’s been fun and dangerous all at the same time.  I’ve been delving into blogs and buying cookbooks that I probably shouldn’t have to get it all together.   And thank God I’m starting the 21 day sugar detox on Monday because I’m sure I have eaten […]
