First of all, Keto is the latest lifestyle trend because many are having such successful results! Being on the Ketogenic Diet for nearly two months now, I can definitely agree that it has made me feel much better and caused my energy to increase.

In contrast, it took some time for me to get used to such a new way of eating. For example, embracing butter and oils. For my entire life, I can only remember hearing about the benefits of a low fat diet. Adding coconut oil to my coffee and cooking with butter? The horror!… [read more]

Superfood Cookies You Can Feel Good About

Superfood Cookies You Can Feel Good About

As we close in on the third month of 2019, those healthy eat resolutions might be dwindling. Let’s face it, keeping up those healthy eating habits can be hard when that sweet tooth comes calling. Luckily, you can indulge anytime you want with Emmy’s Organics Superfood Cookies.

Superfood Cookies with Coconut

This isn’t the first time I’ve had Emmy’s Organics. I remember first stumbling across them with my mom at a Starbucks. She was undergoing cancer treatment and had given up processed sugars. Instead, opting for more natural options, such as dates, agave, honey, coconut sugar, and maple syrup. We were always looking for new recipes or treats to try that would allow her to enjoy something sweet.

You can imagine our excitement when we read the ingredient list on the back of Emmy’s Organics; organic coconut, organic agave syrup, organic almond flour, organic coconut oil, etc. Finally, a quick sweet treat she could eat without feeling guilty. My mom chose the Vanilla Bean and I chose the Dark Cacao. Both were sweet, chewy and delicious. At the time, we didn’t realize there were many other flavors to be had.

In fact, these yummy superfood cookies come in eight different flavors, including Pumpkin Spice, Matcha, Golden Milk, Peanut Butter, Lemon Ginger, Vanilla Bean, Chocolate Chip, and Dark Cacao. Every cookie is made with 100% organic ingredients. They are also NON-GMO, vegan, kosher, dairy-free and gluten-free.

The main ingredient is coconut, so if you like coconut, you will definitely love these little bits. The coconut brings a nice richness to each cookie. It also pairs nicely with flavors like peanut butter and matcha.

One of the coolest things about Emmy’s Organics is all the recipes they’ve developed to use with their cookies. You can check out the entire list on their blog, but for now, I’m going to share the one I tried out. It’s a delicious Cookie Dough Shake. (Note: Since I didn’t have the Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies, I used the Dark Cacao.)

This shake is very easy to make and super delicious. It’s rich and creamy, and you’d never know it contained frozen riced cauliflower. Honestly, it tastes like a regular milkshake with the added bonus of cookies and chocolate chips. And the serving size is pretty generous so you could drink it alone or share it.

Make your house feel like home by adding warmth and comfort with e-cloth, Goose Creek Candles, and White Terry. When we moved into our home, we only had clothes and stuff packed in plastic bins. We didn’t have a whole lot. Making a place feel like home is pretty fun and rewarding because it’s yours!

Beauty Brite Disclosure

In our area of North Carolina, we’ve been battling bouts of snow and rain producing flood conditions. We’re about two days into a six day run of rain and with the combined temperatures of 40 degrees, we could really use some warming up. It also seems that any time we get wet weather, I have someone in my house come down with a case of the sniffles. I wanted a way to give some comfort in this dreary weather but also boost everyone’s immune system so I pulled out my dad’s Super Easy Chili recipe and tweaked it with my favorite Mushroom Extracts to give it the umph* we need to make it through what appears to be our own little monsoon season. But you know what they say, if you don’t like the weather in North Carolina; give it a minute, it’ll change!

Add FreshCap Mushrooms to my Dad’s Super Easy Chili Recipe

chili ingredients

You’ll Need:

  • 1 15 ounce can of Red Kidney Beans
  • 1 15 ounce can of Pinto Beans
  • 1 15 ounce can of Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 8 ounce can of Tomato Sauce
  • 1 8 ounce can of Sweet Corn (i used half a 15 ounce can because that’s all I had on hand)
  • 1 pound of ground beef (or your preference of ground meat, preferably something that is lean)
  • 1 16 ounce container of beef broth
  • 2 tbs Chili Powder
  • 1 tbs cumin (This is one of my favorites from the Chef’s Collection at Burlap and Barrel)
  • 1 tbs Paprika
  • 1 tbs Oregano
  • 1/2 tbs onion powder
  • 1/2 tbs garlic powder
  • 1 scoop of Thrive 6 FreshCap Mushroom Extract
  • If you like spice, add whole chilies until you reach the desired heat index (see my favorite from Burlap and Barrel)
  • salt and pepper to taste

To cook:

  • Brown the ground beef with the above mentioned seasonings (this is why you want something lean, as I typically do not drain fat and cook the meat with seasoning from the start to really impart some flavor)
  • Add the additional canned ingredients and stir
  • Depending on how ‘soupy’ you like your chili, add in the beef broth until you get your desired consistency
  • bring to a boil and reduce to the lowest temperature and simmer for 2-3 hours
  • Serve with CORNBREAD or saltine crackers, sour cream, and cheese.
  • **BONUS – you could put this in the crock pot in the morning and it will be ready for supper at the end of the day

I do my best to buy organic and non-GMO food and beverages. Every once in a while, something slips through. I forget to read the labels and I end up buying GMO foods, usually from the big brand products! I am disappointed that big companies haven’t made the switch for healthier alternatives.

Healing the Body with Alternative Hemp Products

I have been on a journey to heal my body with alternatives to harmful and addictive medications. I suffer from depression, anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, and low back pain associated with Sciatica. I advocate constantly for mental health and I promote alternative healing. However, that being said, I also support those who choose therapy and medication. For myself, I have found that the best path has been alternative medicine and natural, plant based products.

Get Excited About the Day with Cold Brew Coffee

I work a desk job and sometimes it is difficult to find that push I need to start my day. I have the great opportunity of flexing my schedule so that I can have Friday’s off but, unfortunately, that means I work 10 hour days Monday – Thursday. Sometimes the days drag on and I hit that mid-morning and mid-afternoon wall and I go searching the break-room for coffee.
