It seems I have somewhat forgotten that I started a YouTube channel. I will say however that I have the hardest time with video content. Does anyone else dread filming themselves, plus having to edit! It’s just too much. But alas it must be done LOL I’ll be uploading mostly skin care related stuff but obviously some random vlogs too, but I want to hear what the viewers want to see! If you’re an avid YouTube browser let me know what you’d like to see. And if you have a channel you think I should subscribe to, feel free to let me know! Let’s get this thing rollin’!! 🙂 Happy Thursday everyone!
Today I wanted to be extremely raw with myself and whoever reads this. Since this is mental health awareness month I wanted to share a bit of my story.
Sometimes I find it really easy for me to write. Other times I struggle with even finding the first few words. I like to think of myself as a pretty open book, I’m good at letting myself be vulnerable and I’m learning to be more present with my emotions. I also like to think I don’t often give a shit how others view me, as their thoughts and opinions don’t define me and my reality. However, I’ve been finding that I hold myself back a lot and have had to ask myself why. I often don’t fully execute ideas and projects to my full ability. I know I could if I tried maybe just another 25% harder but I don’t.
So why don’t I? After some time looking inward I’ve come to the conclusion that somewhere deep down I must have a fear of failure and probably do care a little bit what others think of me if I don’t succeed. This stems from my history of depression. I’ve never been one to get anxiety that often but I’ve been struggling with manic depression from as far back as 11 years old.
The good news is, since I’ve become more aware of this I’ve been letting myself stay in my feelings and my “episodes” for a few minutes, and really just surrender to it. Sometimes I’ll fucking sob on the floor and lose my damn mind. It can get pretty lonely when you’re in that dark place.
But one thing resonates with me… Yes I have depression and it cannot be changed. But I’m aware I live with it and I CAN change my thoughts on the byproducts of the emotions. The byproducts being that feeling of failure and what others think of me. Here’s the thing though… PSA: These negative thoughts you experience aren’t yours! You are conditioned over the years of your life and fed these soul sucking thoughts by external sources.
Other people may have said or done things to you and put those thoughts in your head and now you believe them. Well don’t because they truly aren’t yours to begin with!! The sooner you realize that and diminish these EXTERNAL thoughts you’ll be able to control your INTERNAL growth!
Since I was actually able to get the courage to share this, I’ll be diving deeper into my history with my mental illness and writing more about my experiences with it.
This also stemmed from me stoping my podcast…I was afraid I’d fail and afraid what people would say, was I good enough? Was it boring? Do I sound dumb? But honestly fuck it. I’m doing it for the 1% out there that may need to hear what I have to say. If I can help just one person suffering from any mental illness then it’s worth it to be judged. That being said… I made a new episode. Go check it out, or don’t. But either way spread some love and compassion today. You never know who needs it.
I know more than anyone that it’s so incredibly easy to go a little overboard when it comes to skin care. There’s so many different products to try, new trends every month and as women…we want it all. We see the beautiful models on the ads with glowing, supple, radiant skin and we want that too so we jump on the first trend that gives us the promise of that same glow.Our bank accounts feel the pain and more often than not the stuff we spend our hard earned money on doesn’t deliver the outcome we expected. So I’m going to show you guys 3 things I picked up while on a budget that I LOVE and that actually work.
1: Life Brand Witch Hazel $5 (Shoppers Drug Mart). I use this as a toner when my more expensive toners run out and I’m not able to spend a ton. This helped clear up my breakouts. It can be found at pretty much any drug store and has a few uses. Bug bites, swelling, bruises, can also be used as a cleanser. I was using this every day and night and it worked wonderfully. If you notice a bit of dryness cut back to once a day or every other day. You can also play scientist and mix this with rose water.
Compared to Belif Witch Hazel Toner $34
2: Jardine Naturals Antibiotic Silver Gel $20 (Nature’s Fare) This all natural, cortisone free, multi purpose skin healer is Anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-inflamatory.It helps heal multiple skin conditions: abscesses, acne, athlete’s foot, boils, burns, ccontact dermatitis, cuts, ecthyma eczema, erysipelas, insect and mosquito bites, itch, jock itch, nail fungus, psoriasis, rash, rosacea, scabies, surgical incisions and sunburn.I use this to replace many things including anti biotic resistant creams which are often pricey themselves, Neosporin for cuts which in my personal opinion drys my skin so bad, and mostly to replace acne spot treatments! If you put all the uses together combined in one little product, compared to all the different products you’d need for those conditions this stuff is worth the $20! Also FYI a little goes a long way.
Compared to Murad acne spot treatment $54
3: Facial Cleansing Brush $3 (Amazon) Who doesn’t have one of these??!! You are snoozing if you don’t! I use my facial brush every day and this one is tiny so it’s great for bringing in my travel tote. Not sure if you read it right so I’ll write it again.. I found this for $3!!! SUCH a steal! I caught myself standing in Sephora feeling sorry for myself and wishing I had the Clarisonic but alas I could not afford it then came this lil sweetie. Probably not as good as the name brand but until I don’t have to stress over spending my hard earned money on a high tech futuristic space brush for my face, this will do the trick!
Well that’s all folks, I hope this helps you save your wallet and your skin.Happy Shopping Loves!
Since I know everyone loves a good am routine I figured I’d join the club and tell you all about mine with every detail imaginable.
But first my pre wake up is my cat. My angel darling sweet boy likes to try to wake me up usually an hour before my alarm because he thinks that is when I want to snuggle….I do not. So after like 5 mins of him touching my face with his stinky cat litter paw and licking my salty eyelids I try to push him away or I’ll grab him and hold him down until he gives up and goes back to bed. Super annoying, this is a for sure thing every damn day. I hate it but if I’m being honest I love it.
We snuggle and go back to sleep until my alarm. I have a Google pixel 2 (not totally sold on this though, thinking of going back to iPhone… thoughts?) However, it has this really cool function called Google assistant routine. So I have my alarm set for 6:45am. As soon as that alarm goes off my “assistant” says good morning, because who doesn’t want to be woken up by a cold robotic toned woman in the morning?? She then tells me the weather for the day, goes over anything in my calendar, reminders and then plays me a podcast! SUCH a fun little trick to actually wake me up and get me going.
I may hit snooze for 10 mins to just get that extra slow none rushed wake up brain zen going, ya know? I hate having an alarm go off and just jumping out of bed so I do 15 mins prior to the time I actually want to be up. After about 10-15 mins I usually turn my podcast off if I need silence, to do some morning meditation in bed. I just lay exactly where I am and practice belly breathing and I like to repeat certain things. Setting my intentions for the day is key so nothing can fuck with me! Make yourself and your space unfuckwithable! I do this usually 5 minutes. Practicing longer meditation but it’s really hard for me to be still and turn off my thoughts for long but this is something I’m working on.
By this time Fish (my cat) is awake and needs his morning attention. I literally cannot even touch my phone because he will head bump it right out of my cold white dead hands that have zero circulation because it’s freezing in my house.
We spend a good 15 (ok maybe longer) snuggling and talking. He walks over my head, claws at the blanket to get under, rubs his lips and mouth on my face, you know the usual. No morning is complete without him! I wake my daughter up at 7:15 and she gets ready for school. She’s 10 so she’s very independent and gets her own breakfast, makes her own lunch etc. It’s sad and I feel like she doesn’t need me anymore lol time for more cats?
While she’s getting ready and I’m done the meditation and snuggles I sit in bed and chug as much cold water as I can. I bought a giant water bottle that holds 1.2L of water and keeps it cold for 24 hours but for reals FOREVER. It’s unreal. I got it from home sense for $15!! The brand is called Takeya. You need one! Life changing!!
Next I get up and put on my black yoga pants that I got from Ardenes for like $10 because they have the softest furry lining and they are ultra comfy. These are my go to’s but if they are in the laundry I’ll grab the next comfy choice. I have my big over sized Taylor Gang blue hoodie hanging up waiting for me to slip my frail cold body into and my fuzzy socks. My mom literally buys me a new pair every chance she gets. Go mom! And my fiance’s giant slippers that I stole that are aka mine, and I’m off to the bathroom for my am skin care routine. I have my pants, socks and slippers next to my bed in a laundry basket the night before so they’re ready to go. HATE being cold and rummaging around for clothes.
Am skin care: this actually varies because I have a few different favs that I’m loving at the moment and this needs an entire blog to itself. (Will post asap!) I do my am routine and once I’m finished I head to the kitchen, put the kiddos lunch etc in her bag and do her hair. The one thing she’s not the best at but again I’m psychotic and need to do it myself so she doesn’t look like shes living outside the house in a van. I drive her to school and head back.
As soon as I’m back I fill up my diffuser with whatever oil I’m having a moment with. Right now it’s called Clary sage and OMFG it’s the best smell. You know those scents you smell and they trigger moments in your life and you can literally remember times you had with that scent?! This one smells like a cream I use to use that I got from the skin care clinic I use to go to a few years ago and it’s like a summery fresh but almost floral but not like old lady flower floral ya know? I got it in a big pack from winners that has 14 oils in it. It’s hands down the best one I’ve found, and has ALL my favorite kinds inside. Grapefruit, lemon, blood orange, cinnamon, so many good ones!
I feed the cats and my bird, open all my blinds so it’s nice and bright and I sweep my kitchen floor. I cannot make breakfast if my floor is dirty. I’ll usually open my windows too if it’s not freezing outside. (These routines will vary with the season changes).
My kitchen is most likely clean because I wash dishes after dinner. I swear I’m not ocd…or maybe I am? I clean my house numerous times a day, maybe I have a problem?! I just need a clean environment ok?! I think having a clean space is EXTREMELY important to time management. I can’t function in dark messy places.
Once my floors are clean, blinds open, house smelling fresh I make breakfast. I either do gluten free oatmeal with fruit and nuts. Mostly cashews because that’s my main nut, but I’ll settle for a pecan or walnut I suppose. Some say a nut is a nut but once again I’m picky. Whaddya do?
Or I’ll do coconut dairy free yogurt with gluten free granola…YUM! And last but my new fav and not least. A toasted gluten free bagel with vegan mayo, lettuce, bacon Maple flavored tempeh, avacado, little bit of hotsauce and of course herbamare herbed sea salt. So delish guys, you need to try. You can put tomato on too for a “VLT” but I cant have tomatoes right now so I exnayed it.
Aaaaaandddd now that that’s done I’m off for the rest of my day. Afternoon routine coming soon?
Jesus Christ I hope I didn’t scare you guys away! haha If you guys liked this blog post, let me know your thoughts, drop me a DM, comment on my latest instagram post, email me, anything! Always love feedback 🙂 Thanks for reading.
I’m sure you guys have heard and seen alllllll about this new moon milk trend popping up on your feed. Those creamy whites, golden glows, and fluffy pretty pinks. What are they exactly? Um hello they are the best thing like ever! I usually make my little concoction before bedtime to help me sleep, hence why they named it moon milk; BUT I’m also an avid day time consumer as well.
What’s in it?
Moon Milk consists of your choice nut milk beverage, warmed-up and then infused with herbs and spices. It can be garnished with edible flowers, spices, herbs, or a pip of honey.
Moon Milk supposedly came from Ayurvedic medicine, a centuries-old holistic healing system, and features several Ayurvedic ingredients, such as turmeric and ashwagandha, a plant said to have anti-inflammatory properties.
So does it actually help with sleep?
The ashwagandha in some moon milk, helps with promoting a calm peaceful state of well-being, as well as the tumeric may lower inflammation, which can create a sense of calm before bedtime. Depending on what spices and herbs you’re putting in it and their benefits, moon milk may or may not help you achieve a more zenful, peaceful slumber. I’d say it’s more likely the ritual of a warm beverage that helps aid relaxation but either way these colorful, frothy potions are delicious and totally worth trying.
I’m all about my routines and rituals so if you’re like me and like to wind down and have a special step by step process, try including one to your bedtime routine. add your favorite adaptogen and start counting those sheep!
How to make:
So I have two routes for you because as per usual I’m all about harmony. Although both are easy and quick I’m going to give you the fast and faster ways to make these babies. The Golden Tumeric Latte is the recipe for today. Gluten free, Vegan, Dairy Free.
Option one (from scratch):
Ingredients- 1Cup Coconut Milk (or nut milk of choice)
-1 tablespoon Honey or Maple Syrup for vegan
-1 teaspoon Ground Turmeric
– 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon Ginger
Combine all ingredients in a small pot over medium heat.
Heat for 10-15 minutes while whisking occasionally. Do not bring mixture to a boil.
Serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Or, cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a blender, add ice and blend until frothy, iced latte.
Option two (instant packet):
Ingredients- 1 Cup of Coconut Milk (or water for even quicker latte)
1 package of Foursigmatic Golden Tumeric Latte
Instructions- Same as above, stir milk until warm OR boil water.
Pour into cup.
Add packet to cup, stir, enjoy! Super quick, super simple and mega yummy!
*For extra creamy heaven I turned coconut milk into whipped cream and added a scoop of that into the instant packet/water. Hence why this one wasn’t as golden.
Now let’s talk about Foursigmatic. I discovered this brand back in January while I was looking for a coffee alternative. After stumbling upon this brand I fell absolutely in love with their hot cocoa mix (more in depth blog to come on all their different kinds soon).
After trying a few and looking more into their background and brand I was hooked. I literally do not let my kitchen go unstocked with this stuff!
This mushroom based company hails all the way from Finland and they do not disappoint. Even if you hate mushrooms you’ll love Foursigmatic. Their teas, coffees, elixirs, and even edible beauty products do not taste like our weird little contorted alien shroomy friends. They do however give you all the benefits!
“Mushrooms and adaptogens are some of the world’s most nutritious foods. But they get shiit(ake) on constantly for fickle taste opinions.
Even if they’re not your cup of tea, you’ll be amazed by how easy and delicious adding ‘shrooms to your favorite daily drinks can be. Whether you’re a black coffee, latte, hot cacao, or tea person, we have a drink made for you.”
The Golden Latte contains, Organic shiitake mushroom (500mg) organic turmeric, organic tulsi, organic ginger, organic black pepper, organic stevia, organic coconut palm sugar, and organic coconut milk powder.
It is also vegan, paleo, gluten free, and caffeine free.
For more info on Foursigmatic go to http://www.foursigmatic.com and be sure to follow them on Instagram @foursigmatic for all the shroomy goodness!
Happy Moon Milkin’!!
🌷Ahhh spring has SPRUNG!! The snow has melted and it’s Friday so let’s jump into my FriYayFavs and a quick review of one amazing new product I can’t live without.
Drunk Elephant Framboos Glycolic Night Serum. K guys I can’t get enough of this stuff! My skin has honestly never been better. For about 3 years I’ve suffered from hormonal acne mostly around my chin area and literally tried everything. Even prescribed meds and we all know how awful those are for your gut health. Everything starts from within so bad gut=bad skin and so starts the vicious cycle 😔
Then along came this drunk elephant who showed me its wise ways. They never forget and apparently they know skin care, makes sense right? Right! 😁
Why is this stuff unreal? WELL… here’s a few quick points
•This serum is made up of AHA/BHAs including glycolic, lactic, citric, and tartic acids, plus raspberry.
•These exfoliants resurface the skin by lifting all of the dead cells so that over time, your complexion will become smoother, I started using March 1st and already notice a big difference.
•These acids combined also help diminish fine lines and wrinkles (bye bye Botox!) YAY!
IN LOVE! Can’t wait to buy the full size 🥰🐘💗
Lately my skin has been loving me, obviously cutting out all the bullshit food and garbage I was putting into my body has helped, BUT Ive also been more conscious of what I’m putting onto my body and skin as well.
I started my mission, my quest if you will (cuz apparently I’m playing the life version of Minecraft or some shit?!) to find better, cleaner, cruelty free, chemical free, bullshit free skin care products. I found myself reading a ton of labels and finding products without the Suspicious 6 and since then Ive never looked back. Yes I’m still weening off some products with this shit in them but I hate being wasteful…bad for the environment ya dig?!
Anyways here’s my most current AM routine:
💗 Pixi rose cream cleanser- This cleanser feels SO nice on my skin, kind of reminds me of an oatmeal bath but for your face lol such a comforting texture.
💗 Herbivore botanicals jasmine green tea balancing toner- not a fan of the smell but the result is refreshed clean feeling skin. I actually love spraying this directly on my face mid day for a nice cool pick me up.
🐘 Drunk Elephant B-hydra intensive hydration serum- I just started using drunk elephant products on March 1st and so far I’m a huge fan! I’ve already noticed a difference. This product is so lightweight and smooth and really does lock in moisture. Cruelty free and Vegan! I love mixing this with other moisturizers and oils.
🐘 Drunk Elephant C-firma day serum- again I mix this with my b-hydra and it gives my skin that extra bright beautiful morning glow! Over time this will help with sun spots as well. The smell is a lil funky but if following with a moisturizer it doesn’t matter.
💗 Pixi H20 skin drink hydration gel- I use this directly after I’ve mixed my DE products. I was using this without as well and I can’t say enough how amazing this is. My skin feels so hydrated and smooth and it doesn’t have a weird or overbearing smell to it like other gems I’ve used. Will repurchase, the price is awesome too! Found at Shoppers.
Guys this gluten free, almost vegan thing ain’t no joke! For someone who loves the convenience of a one stop shop, this definitely hasn’t been easy. So here I am today now shopping at a few different places because god forbid every brand be in one spot. (Note these are things I’ve found here in Canada)
I wanted to make a list of some of the great finds I’ve scored lately and where to get them so I can save you the headache! I wish future me thought of this so it was already written and present me didn’t have to fuck around and do it herself..myself? Whatever. You get the point. Ok so here goes it!
Meat aka Veat:
Upton’s Naturals Jackfruit- The few I’ve found come in BBQ, Thai Curry, and Original. I haven’t tried the Original yet as I like a lil extra flavor already on my JF. Ok so I’m now a HUGE fan of jackfruit. I tried it for my first time at Surf City Blitz Festival in Huntington Beach and since then I can’t not have this in my fridge.
Vegan, Gluten Free and non GMO
Found at Nature’s Fare and Choices Market
Gardein Ground Beef- I use to like the Yves brand best for ground beef (still like, it’s just now in second place). This brand however, I prefer better! They also have a massive product selection. Fake chicken, fishless filets, crabless crab cakes, even sweet and sour porkless bites! I’ll definitely be trying many of these soon.
Vegan, Gluten Free, Non GMO
Found at Nature’s Fare, Choices Market and Superstore
Daiya Dairy Free Shredded Cheese- I’ve tried both kinds, mozzarella and cheddar, mostly for vegan sauces to add some thickness but have since then tried it in a few dishes and I must say for someone who’s an insane real cheese freak, I actually am quite surprised by this stuff. Melts just like real cheese and has the same texture and flavor when mixed into your dish. Their website even has a ton of recipes to try with their various items and I’m LIVING for them!
Vegan, Gluten Free, Soy Free, Peanut Free
Found at Nature’s Fare, Superstore, Save-On and Choices Market
Spread Em Kitchen Co- Alright everyone, stop what you’re doing and go get this stuff like NOW. To date, my all time favorite Cheez substitute, like ever! I’ve only tried the Jalepeno Lemon and Chive & Garlic, and both are straight fire. The creamy texture is perfect for dipping, spreading (hence the name which is already hilarious and clever) and sauces. I’ve made ranch dip out of them and they are just so bomb. Another Canadian company that is a new staple in my fridge. MUST TRY! Their site has some tasty recipes as well.
Vegan, Non GMO, Soy Free, Gluten Free, Paleo
Found at Nature’s Fare
Hippie Snacks Califlower Crisps- OMFG I randomly stumbled upon these delicious little fuckers while on a road trip to the middle of nowhere and they blew my mind. A) how did I not know these existed and B) where can I get a lifetime supply?! Simple as they sound, just Califlower crisps with some sea salt. Perfect lil road bites.
Non GMO, Gluten Free, Plant Based
Found these at Nesters Market, can also order them online thru Amazon
Noble Jerky Teriyaki- When I use to eat meat beef jerky was a stable after I had too many hits from the bong (half kidding). Since I haven’t eaten it in years or bong hoots for that matter I kind of forgot how good it was. This was another random find at Winners in their check out lane and I’m hooked!! Tastes exactly like what I think I remember beef jerky tasted like.
Vegan, Non GMO, Soy based
Found at Winners and Nature’s Fare, also sold online
True North Gluten Free Baked Is Best Crackers- Alright these are a Game Changer! I’ve found it so hard to find gluten free snacks with little, if none, sugar added that still tasted great and these exceeded my expectations. Not only that but they’re made right here in BC!! WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER! I’m such a needy B when it comes to crunchy snacks, like I have a serious issue when I crave salt. I’m more of a savory than sweet girl you know? So not being able to eat chicks has been super lame. But now that I have these I eat them like everyday. So good for dipping in hummus or cashew cheez spread (specifically the one I mentioned above).
Gluten Free, Non GMO, Vegan, Corn Free
Found at Nature’s Fare
Red Mill Nutritional Yeast- So far I’ve only used this stuff in sauces but I’m going to stop being a chicken and add it just raw and sprinkled onto some veggies and popcorn like it suggests. It really adds a nice savoury almost smokey cheesy flavor to sauces! Again this brand has recipes on their site as well.
Vegan, Gluten Free, Paleo
Found at Superstore, Nature’s Fare, Save-On, Choices Market, IGA, and Urban Fare
Ok so we covered my first initial appointment. Now let’s just dive into my 2nd.
Blood tests…. My fav…JK. But this one I was actually looking forward to because finally I would get some clear answers. So I did my fasting the night before and Monday morning there I was eager to get poked and pee in a cup. So fun right?
Then 5 days later I headed into my appt. Now since I can’t tell you everything due to the fact that I didn’t actually get that print out cuz that’s doctors eyes only stuff and I have the memory of an ant when it comes to medical terms, so I’ll just tell you what I remember.
I was dehydrated (shocker 🙄) I’m the worst at drinking water BUT I finally found a killer water bottle which I talk about on my #4 podcast. I was very acidic, and my gastrointestinal system was in my words, FUCKED UP. This was due to the common causes, most likely food intolerances, stress, infection which lead to –> disbyosis and damaging immune reaction in my mucosal lining of the gut –> aka intense gut inflammation which led to villious flattening (tentacle thing I was referring to on my podcast) which led to malabsorption. And alas my diagnosis Leaky Gut Syndrome. Basically my guts were totally trashed from the trash I was putting in my body and the stress that I was experiencing for who knows how long. Still with me???
So started the healing! REMOVE & REPLACE. The no list…which I was a little hesitant about at first but now it’s actually a breeze and I love eating the way I do and just chilling the fuck out, ya know? It feels REAL good! 😎
I know this may be a lot of reading but I’m giving you guys my actual full program that’s helped me literally back to being a light instead of a dark moody shit head. Because we all know healthy people are happy people! Keep in my mind this worked for me but may not work for others so always consult your Dr before going forward with big changes.
The elimination diet (remove):
-no nightshade veggies, tomatoes, eggplant, pepper family, potatoes…cue me crying over cutting out my best vegetable friend 😭🥔❤️
-no white anything, sugar, flour, alcohol, rice (brown rice is ok, takes fucking forever to cook so be advised well before you start dinner unlike me…)
-no dairy, eggs, peanuts, red meat
-no coffee! Thought I’d hate this one but my coffee headache and withdrawals are over and I don’t found THEE best alternative! Blog to come 😉
-no wheat or corn
-no pop or drinks sweetened with sugar
– limit hot spices
-eat 4 different veggies per day, best if raw or steamed
-eat 3 fruit per day
-one handful of berries per day
-a variety of legumes such as split peas, lentils, and beans of all kinds.
-lots of wild fish, salmon, cod, baked or broiled or steamed
-meat of free range, chicken or turkey (I’m a pescatarian so I don’t eat these)
-healthy fats, extra virgin cold pressed olive oil, flax oil, fish oils and fats found in raw nuts and seeds. Seeds must be ground to release oils. Coconut or grapeseed oil must be used for high temp cooking.
-herbal teas, mineralized water, total fluids I’m trying to drink are 2L/day. (Again peep the podcast for the best water bottle)
-honey, maple syrup or stevia in small amounts for sweetener.
Basically this is like a gluten free, 87% vegan diet LOL but totally doable! If I can do it, you can too.
Also try to cut out products with shit in them, you know like those awful cancer causing beauty products you probably lather on your skin. Cleaning products and plastics that are hazardous, get rid of em! Look for bpa free, phthalate free, fragrance free, hypoallergenic, biofriendly products.
60 mins minimum of activity per day.
I’m currently making a list with photos of my fav food products I’ve found, so stay tuned for that.
Part 3 coming soon. Let me know your thoughts, drop me a DM, email or vmail on the podcast and let’s talk all things health!
Wishing you clean, happy, and energetic love and light today humans.
Luv yew all 💕
Alright this Daiya cheese faze I’m in is seriously unreal. WHO WOULDA THUNK?! I love my damn cheese but I think I can get use to this fake Cheez vegan thing guys 😏
Made this the other night and was not disappointed.
So I used the Upton’s Naturals Jackfruit- Thai Curry Sauce. You can google how to prepare jackfruit from scratch or use pre packaged which I like because, helloooo convenience!
Heat up a tbsp of coconut oil, cook jackfruit in pan with chickpeas for 5-8 mins.
I used brown rice and only cooked for half the time. Drain, Add to baking dish with jackfruit and chickpeas.
1 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup Frank’s (or preferred buffalo sauce)
2 tbsp coconut oil or vegan butter
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tbsp maple syrup (can use raw honey)
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp paprika
1/2 cup daiya shredded cheese
Put all other ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Taste test if it’s spicy enough for you and add more buffalo sauce if needed. Pour over rice, chickpeas and jackfruit, mix together.
Bake uncovered on 350f for 20 mins. EASY PEASY! Hope you enjoy this dish as much as I did.
