My husband and I have a green packed smoothie once a day (about half a liter each). This gives me a chance to throw in stuff I wouldn’t normally eat on its own, such as turmeric root, wheatgrass, spoonful of coconut oil, etc. I always throw in many superfoods and some powdered greens as well as fresh for that super daily boost. I’ll throw a recipe on here occasionally as I go!
Here are this week’s picks for us. Click on the recipe titles for the links.

We had these yesterday and they are so yum! Definitely try this recipe.
Just went food shopping this morning and learned my lesson: Whole Foods does their stocking in the mornings! So as crowded as it may get in the afternoons, that’s probably the best time to go. However, I bought all the ingredients needed for the following three recipes for this week. Click on the images to get the recipe.
My husband and I do not consume any dairy products a majority of the time. However, I have been reading a lot about the health benefits of ghee, and it’s been one of those things that just keeps popping up everywhere I look, especially because I am usually attracted to Indian food recipes. So at first, when I kept seeing it on the ingredient list, I found myself wondering what this ‘ghee’ is.
So I created and tried this home made facial mask today and BAM my pores are so clean! I am pretty sure I’ve hit the gold mine of facials. I have to share this with you guys.
This mask uses warming ingredients to open up the pores, and then ingredients with strong antioxidant and antibacterial properties to really get in there and clean those suckers out! Some of the areas on my face that can get a little clogged up are my nose and forehead, so this made my pores look visibly cleaner and my skin glow. Here it is:
We are vegetarian and mostly do not eat milk products, so this may or may not synchronize with your diet. However, we do try to keep our food interesting and delicious. We pick 3 recipes for the week and cook to have leftovers. I find most of my recipes on foodgawker. Here’s what we chose for this week!
The stores are decorating wreaths and I smell pumpkin lattees everywhere I go, so that must mean it’s time for fall and winter holidays! Family and friends will gather and you’ll be filling up your plates with the deliciousness you spent all day making and feeling the warmth in your heart for having the pleasure of such great blessings. You’ll probably sit by the fireplace and if you’re my husband you’ll accidentally singe your eyebrows because you forgot to open the fireplace vent.
This week I just have to tell you coconut oil, not only because of how varied its uses are but also because my hubby has asked me to make this post so that he can share it with others in his joint admiration of this miracle oil!
Coconut oil is one of nature’s many miracle healers and is one of the best things to keep around the home! Coconuts provide us with several useful sources of nutrition: the meat, milk, and oil which are rich in fiber, minerals, and vitamins.
If you’re like me, you like a steamy, hot cup of joe in the morning. Unfortunately, it’s not the best health choice to start off your day and I end up feeling guilty for not making a better one. However, I’ve found a way to counter your morning coffee in a way that won’t leave you zapped within a few hours and hankering for more caffeine.
Need a boost of greens with a great taste? Don’t fear the magnificent Kale, you won’t even taste it in most kale shakes or smoothies, however the high level of nutrition it provides gives it the title of one of the healthiest foods and is what has made it so popular.
