Kombucha 101

I made a video last week on what Kombucha is. I have so many questions and emails regarding this amazing wonder drink that I am obsessed with. I have been brewing it every since last summer and it's so darn easy and saves so much money! Here is a quick video on the details!!! And yes the scoby terrified me for months. I refused to touch it and used tongs to move it! haha!

PS I got my hair cut and got bangs. I am loving the change up!! It has been such a fun switch because I wear my hair in a messy bun a ton so now I semi look put together because I have bangs!

2 HEALTHY treats for your family.

Last month I was invited to share some recipes on Rebecca Regnier's show Full Plate. I love Rebecca because not only is she a boy mom, she is so laid back and cool! I shared two of my favorite treats for my sweet tooth addiction! I love chocolate and getting my body healthy again I decided that the only way to make it work was finding ways to incorporate healthier sweets in my diet. Here is the clip from our segment! 




Here are the two recipes in full:

Cookie Dough Balls. 
1 1/2 cup shredded coconut (either sweetened or unsweetened)
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup nut butter of choice (i love almond butter)
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup chocolate chips

Melt the coconut oil and mix all ingredients together. Drop by teaspoonful onto wax paper and freeze. Transfer into a freezer bag or container and store in the freezer.

Shakeology Protein Balls-
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup honey
1 cup chocolate shakeology powder.

Mix all together and roll into small bite sized balls. I store mine in the fridge.  

Thanks again to Rebecca for having me on the show! If you have any questions about these recipes or other recipes let me know!  xoxo
