What is it about the fall that makes me wanna eat all the curry bowls 🍛 😜? they’re just so aromatic & warming & cozy. i’m just gonna say it - comfort food, right? this time of year, i want all the ‘stick to your ribs’ dishes 👅 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
as we approach fall/winter, we naturally start to crave heavier foods like stews, puréed soups & hearty bowls. we eat less light, raw & cold dishes because our body craves warmth. it’s called, ‘eating with the seasons’ & it’s exactly what we’re meant to do 👌🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
do you try to eat with the seasons? share 👇🏼 get the recipe for this paleo-friendly, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy & soy free thai red curry chicken recipe by clicking on the link in my bio. i also chat more about the benefits of eating with the seasons. #chickencurry #paleorecipes

Raspberry coconut cream parfait 🍨 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
because sometimes you need something sweet & you need it in less than 25 min! this dessert is insanely simple to throw together. its paleo & keto friendly. it’s also gluten, dairy & grain-free. and i’m sharing the recipe here for you (in case you wanna make it asap 😋): ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
crumble ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1/2 cup almond flour ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1 cup chopped pecans & almonds ⠀
1/3 cup @lakantosweetener ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4 tbsp melted coconut oil ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
pinch of sea salt ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
mix 👆🏼together. bake on a cookie sheet at 375f for 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway through. while your crumble bakes work on your other layers 👇🏼. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
raspberry layer ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1 cup raspberries (i used frozen which i thawed) ⠀⠀
2 tsp @lakantosweetener ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1 tsp vanilla extract ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
mix ☝🏼 together & set aside for now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
coconut cream whip ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1 can full f*t coconut milk, chilled in the refrigerator overnight ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1 tsp vanilla extract ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2 tsp @lakantosweetener ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
flip your can of coconut milk upside down & scoop out the cream (refrigerating it will help separate the cream from the liquid). using a hand mixer, blend the coconut cream, vanilla & lakanto together until it looks smooth & creamy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
assembly ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- portion a bit of the crumble into a serving bowl, layer with the raspberry jam, then a generous amount of the coconut cream whip & if you’d like shave some good quality dark chocolate on top. i used @naturescanada 70%. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
enjoy 😉 #healthydessert

Do you ever wonder what happens to the toxins that you encounter everyday - whether it’s via processed foods, environmental pollutants, or even unprocessed emotions? 🤔quite simply, they get stuck in your system if they’re not properly excreted. 👀🤷🏻‍♀️today, we learned master tung’s detoxing cupping technique which specifically pulls the stuck toxins from your system. guess i needed it, huh? stay tuned for a follow up picture to show the progress of toxin removal 🤗✨

Did you know smoothies used to be a “hippy” food that gained popularity with the macrobiotic and health food movement in the 60’s? smoothies existed long before that, soon after the invention of the home refrigerator and blender, but sources show that the term “smoothie” only stuck when it became branded by a lactose intolerant teenager in the 70’s who opened the smoothie king - a vitamin store that sold his healthy, dairy-free drinks. smoothies have come a long way since then, a favourite quick food that can be designed to fulfill the health goals of its consumer with a whole variety of supplements to enrich its nutrient density. what is your favourite smoothie ingredient? #smoothie #history #funfactfriday #thewhealthylife #healthandwellnesslove

Post farmer’s market haul... our goods didn’t make it into the house before the boys climbed into the trunk to treat themselves! this summer’s scorching heat has produced some heavenly sweet peaches and an early abundance of blueberries - enjoy them while they last! #buylocal #farmersmarket #supportfarmers #summerharvest

The sun’s kisses are second best only to those from my boys - though the sun’s rays give us more than a whole lot of love! sun exposure is a source of natural vitamin d which with appropriate exposure, can provide over 20,000 units per day, whereas food rarely provides 400 units. vitamin d in tandem with cholesterol are key players to brain and heart health. 🧠 ♥️ proper dosing of d3 has shown to significantly improve one’s lipid profile. “good” cholesterol is found in every cell of the body to produce hormones, cell membranes and bile salts to help you digest f*t as well as to playing a vital role in memory formation and neurological function. research shows that safe sun exposure helps the body raise the “good” cholesterol and bring down levels of “bad cholesterol.” just remember to soak up safely with incremental exposure throughout the summer and enjoy the free warm kisses away from peak hours ☀️ #summervibes #vitamind #layout #sunsafe #boymom #sunkissed #beachdayeveryday #bestofmom

My tiny herb garden sampler is starting to fill out with an array of aromatics: from lemongrass, spearmint and lavandula to various culinary favourites - basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, sage, cilantro, parsley, chives and marjoram. so much satisfaction in the harvesting of fresh leaves and sprigs to throw directly into a simmering p*t - from the aroma released in food to the flavours that bloom with every bite.... and count in nutritional benefits, of course! #herbgarden #culinaryherbs #gardentotable #holisticnutrition #whealthyandco #organicgardening

How often have you heard that food is medicine? this pesto is a perfect example of how food can play an important role in healing, this particular recipe being an excellent component to add to a heavy metal detox. the main ingredients here support a detox for mercury and lead, both neurotoxins that we all have some degree of exposure to, whether from household products, paint, vaccines, makeup, tattoos, traffic fumes, dental amalgams, farmed fish, etcetera. how well we filter out these toxins depends on our bodies and the amount we are exposed to, so a little help from a delicious snack can’t hurt! 🌿cilantro is the main herb used for its chelating effect . it is known to be able to bind to mercury and escort it out for excretion. it also prevents the absorption of lead into bone. studies also show that the antimicrobial properties of cilantro are twice as effective as the antibiotic used for salmonella! 🌿brazil nuts are added for selenium - an antioxidant mineral that protects against free radical damage. it is also known to bind with mercury and as a new mercury-selenium substance, it does not get absorbed by the body and gets excreted. 🌿 finally, with a good dose of garlic, the recipe is loaded with sulfur which is needed for the body’s production of glutathione - a key component in any detox. 🌿 this trio produces a savoury spread for crackers, a sauce over zoodles, or any other pesto favourite. full recipe in stories/recipes above! #armyourself #detox #recipe #heavymetaldetox
