Ways to get Vegetables in when you don't like them or are sick of them!

Hey guys so I think today's post is gonan be a GREAT one for you guys... I know the power of veggies so I complied a three part list of my favorite tips, recipes, and products to get your veggies in especially if your sick of them or don't like them~


1. Sneak them in other foods. Below I have recipes for getting veggies in your oatmeal, pancakes, pasta, pizza and more! This is an easy you to eat them, you can't taste them and it adds volume.

2. Have green smoothies, You can't taste it especially if you add frozen banana and/or protein powder. Also more than greens you can freeze zucchini (cut in up first) and add it to your smoothie and it makes it super creamy. Raw cocoa also totally cuts the flavor.

3. Find a recipe or vegetable you like. Try the different recipes and variety of vegetables. For instance, mushrooms and broccoli taste TOTALLY different. So try a few and when you find a kind you like stick with it. Your body will begin to crave the nutrients in it and then slowly start branching out.

4. Add fat. Fat actually helps you absorb the nutrients in your veggies too! Plus, it add lots of flavor. I always add fats to a big plate of veggies (well, usually not perfect;). Some good  ones are avocado, coconut shreds, cashew based dressing, sunflower seeds, tahini, etc.

5. Use a green powder. I have great one's below and more information below but thinks helps alkalize your body a lot! This really made a difference in my health.


1. Zoats... You can't even taste it.. Zuchinni in oatmeal:)- This recipe has more add-ins but you don't need it!:)

2. Spinach in Pancakes.. Again except for the color you can't taste it!

3. Zuchini Noodles.. Are so good you wouldn't even know!

4. Cauliflower Pizza Base (Vegan).... SO GOOD!

5. Green Smoothies:)!!! ( This is my favorite way!)

Green  Vegetable Powders:

~I love these . It really helps alkalize your body, because you get the most high quality greens that you'd never it. Quality and Sourcing is super important so here's my favorite... If you want to use the coupon here's the code: RQANXY ($$ off and free shipping on all orders) if you can want to use it:)

1. Vitamineral green. BEST product in the world.  I talk about how it literally got me in to health and helped me reverse pretty serious conditions in this post so I won't repeat it and bore you...:)
Get it here SO amazing:::: Link here.
 2. Chlorella.. Is AMAZING for detoxing heavy metals. It will definitely help with cleansing and alkalizing as well.
Here's my favorite and cheapest: Link here.
3. Last but not least... Chlorophyll... I find this is really great for people who don't eat that pure of a diet and/or need helping 'moving things along'. Or just to get some more chlorophyll in your diet.
Favorite and best tasting: Link here. (*they have pills and tinctures to just put in search bar)

*** With all green supplements START SUPER SMALL AND BUILD UP.. They can be very cleansing for some people and to much to soon can really not make you feel good!***

I hope this helped, I tried to compile the best stuff I could. What do you do to get more veggies in?

Natural Detox Tips Part 2..

Hey guys, here is part 2 to the natural detox tips.. No extremes just a natural way...

6. Use the healing spices mentioned in this post in your cooking and smoothies to fight inflammation and more.

7. Tea ... There are so many great ones out there. I'll put a link to some good ones (I'll ones I've tried otherwise I wouldn't link it).. But they have tea for skin, stress, detox and more...
A GREAT if you hate the taste of tea(Like me:) Then open tea bags and put them in your green smoothie in the morning or if you don't do green smoothies put them in your protein shake!
Here's  a good skin tea.
A good detox tea.
A good to for an upset stomach.
A good tea for stress.
This one taste's amazing, but has no real benefits:)~:)
Here's one for chocolate lover's but again no benefits but chocolate!!!:)

8. Fiber. You have to get enough fiber in your diet. High fiber and volume foods like fruit, veggies, coconut flour, and whole grains.. and eating enough of them help you reach your fiber goal. You'll so much better. Some people need even more than 25 grams. Also, make sure you get soluble and insoluble.

9. Greens. If your body is an acidic state it will not detox. I've talked about it a lot on the blog. If you struggle with greens I'll do a post on how to get more greens tomorrow so stay toned.

10. Be regular. I talked about it a lot on the other detox post and in the fiber tip, but I just wanted to repeat it I'll give tips for this on Tuesday. I know your just dying to read that;)..

HAVE A GREAT DAY! I hope this helps!~

Healing Spices #foodiefriday

Hey you guys, I thought I'd continue with yesterdays theme~ Today I'll do a post on how to incorporate spices into your diet that fight inflammation and tons more. Some you may know but I think some will surprise you~:)

1. This is one you may now but turmeric/curcumin. Turmeric has NUMEROUS studies showing it's healing benefits for cancer-, and reducing inflammation which is SO important.
Ways to use it: Great on Avocado Toast, On fish, Stir Fries, Salads
*You can also take it in pill from, if you suffering from any kind of inflammation related illness I definitely recommend it.                                           
If your interested in purchasing turmeric here are two links:
Here is the powder form.
Here is the pill form.
(Cupon Code: Free Shipping on all orders+$5 off: RQANXY) *** Applies to all the links below***
(Also it's $5 off $25 I believe:)

2. The second is SUPER popular, but cinnamon. Cinnamon not only tastes amazing but is great for balancing blood sugar. You don't need to have hypo/hyperglycemia to have blood sugar issues. A lot of cravings and mindless eating comes from low blood sugar. With stable blood sugar you will find you are much more mindful when you eat. It is also said to boost metabolism, but I have not found any valid science on that. You get a lot more benefits when you buy high quality cinnamon like the one below but definitely that's not the only one or anything!:)
It is so much cheaper to buy it in bulk(cuz I Know a lot of ya'll use a lot of cinnamon:)
-Cool Info Graphic-

Here is that link. - can you use coupon above.

3. The last one I will share for today is ginger root. Ginger is SO healing to the GI tract and helps reduce bloating. So if you are having issues when you eat then definitely try adding some high quality ginger root on your food.
Link here.
Super good uses: In baking, Salads, Stir Fries, Juices, Smoothies

Get powder here.
Get pills here if your having GI issues.
Don't forget coupon if your getting them:)

I'll definitely do a second post on this, because these are super helpful little tricks and I have other tricks to get these in your diet that I don't have time for today! Ps. You definitely don't have to use my links I just add them cuz it's some of the cheapest(with $0 shipping and cupon) that I have found or I like the quality/brand:)

Have a great day and how do you like to use the above spices:)???

5 Ways to Detox Naturally Everyday and what makes Cleanses so good (read first)...

     Hey you guys today I come at ya with a post about detox. Detox is such a buzz word these days with a new "clease" coming out every other day. I do not believe in cleanses or anything like that. A lot of the time they are short starvation diets.
     What makes cleanses so good is not what you are eating, but what you are not eating. In other words, you can get the probably get the same results as far as "detox" goes eating a whole food vegan diet with enough food and make is sustainable vs. going on and off a starvation diet leaving you with a bad mindset. Okay, rant over:)
     But you can work with your body to help it detox naturally. A lot of people don't even realize this, but it's your liver that helps you detox so your better off helping your body be more efficient and let it do what it's designed to do. The other thing is  your not actually detoxing if nothing is coming out of you(I.e. going to the bathroom, sweating, etc.).

5 way to detox naturally:

1. Eat a whole foods vegan diet (or as close as possible to do with a healthy balanced mindset, see below).  Kind of like I mentioned earlier, but you can't really detox if you keep putting "crap" in it. Chemicals, Toxins, Animal Products and Byproducts all aren't gonna help. If you can't keep a balanced mindset like I talk about below then eat fun foods in moderations, which I think is best. Balance, Just eat fun foods consciously and let them add to your life and your health.

2.  Healthy Mindset...OhmyGosh this is SO important, no one truly realizes how key the mind and body connection is. In fact, did you know a ton of digestive disorder such as IBS are caused by stress. I truly believe good health will be very hard without working on yourself... talking, mediating, therapy if needed, nature, etc.

3. Dry Brush.. It's this tan brush( I will put the link below) you basically just brush your body with it before showers. Your skin is your largest organ so this is super beneficial. It helps remove crap from the skin, also great for cellulite (I will also link a very detailed post below for you).

Information on dry brushing click here.
Buy a dry brush click here.

4. Inversions. You hear about this a lot in yoga. You stand on your feet all day, switching the direction of the blood flow is very helpful.... Some ways to do it... Feet on the wall, shoulder stand, handstand, plow, headstand and if you really like it they have inversion tables which are amazing, but expensive, very popular in the detox circles.

5. Last but not least is rebounding. It looks a like a mini trampoline. It's SO good for the lymphatic system and getting everything moving. You can do it as a light workout or how I like to do it get up and jump 100x to get everything going. Here is where you can get it and more information (highly recommend!)

Information on Rebounding.
Here to buy a rebounder.

There are a few more tips that I didn't have time for today, if you want to know more let me know and let me know what you think.

As always have  a great today. Oh,.and for more cool stuff  follow me on instagram if you like here.

Have  a wonderful day~
