I love this quinoa from Costco it's only $10. It's premade you can eat it for lunch or you eat it as a side. I've actually gotten a little creative, and came up with full on meals with this quinoa. We all love quick, easy, and cost efficient recipes. Whether you're a busy mom or bachelor you will love these hearty homestyle entrees.
Garlic & Lime Shrimp
I put precooked shrimp in the pan with lime juice. After warming it up, & sautéeing the shrimp. I added it to the quinoa.
That's a Wrap!!
100% whole wheat tortillas or corn tortillas with fresh cut turkey meat from the Target Deli, quinoa, avocado, & spinach.
Get low sodium organic turkey meat.
Healthy Pizza Party
Everyone loves pizza but traditional pizza doesn't love our waistline. My pizza recipe is faster to make than it is to wait for a delivery driver.
We all hate those bad carbs/ simple carbs. This pizza crust is a complex carb. If trying to keep your carbohydrates low this crust is for you. This pizza crust is ultra thin. It's also 100% Whole Wheat. You can find it online at Target. $4.99 for three crust per package. I ordered three packs. I kept one out and froze the rest to enjoy later.
Spinach, Mushrooms, & Olive Pizza
⬆️It actually would have took less time but I sliced the olives and mushrooms myself. I could have bought them already sliced which would have saved me time.⤴️
Chicken & Olive Pizza
I love this pizza because I used leftover chicken. It was boiled chicken I had eaten the day before with a side of greens. Since I was already boiling chicken I threw extra in there to eat another day. I put the extra chicken in the fridge in some meal prep tupperware. The only thing I had to do to make this pizza was add pasta sauce & slice the chicken and olives.
It's so easy and healthy. My next pizza creation will be sliced turkey bacon with sliced pineapple. My spin off of Canadian bacon and pineapple pizza. This would be a fabulous date night activity. If you have children this would be a fantastic family fun night.
Candyless Candy Bar Recipe

1 teaspoon of organic raw local honey

1/2 tsp of pure Mint extract (can substitute vanilla for a different taste)

If you have extra store in the freezer in popsicle trays to enjoy later. It's a refreshing healthy treat that hits the spot.
Healthier Version of Starbucks
Ice, Matcha, Unsweetened Cashew Milk, & Blend in a Blender. Cashew milk has the least calories and you can get it with no sugar added.
Link to buy Sugar free Matcha this Matcha taste amazing.
Spoonful of Matcha, Unsweetened Cashew Milk, and Stir. Then put the mug under the steamer until your latte is frothy. I bought one of these Mr. Coffee coffee makers for $40.00. I only use the steamer. Just fill it with water and you have a Starbuck quality steamer. The only difference is less sugar and your are your own barista.☕
I love Starbucks. I loved going there every Thursday, and leading my teen bible study group. It's a great place to meet friends or get some work done. The ambiance is always on point. Here in Texas some Starbucks play Christian music, which always gives good and peaceful vibes. I love their blueberry oatmeal. Oats, Blueberries, and Nuts. When I don't have time to make mine at home. I order a Green Tea Frappuccino with Matcha, Coconut Milk, Ice, No Pumps/Classic, (which cuts the sugar) & no whipped cream. If it's cold outside I'll order a Green Tea Latte same way but no ice. Unfortunately Starbucks Matcha already has sugar inside the mix, cutting the base/classic and whipped cream help cut sugar. Choosing almond milk also cuts the sugar. Coconut milk is the next healthiest. I prefer not to drink almond milk due to reports that it was giving customers mucus.
The more matcha the greener your drink. Less matcha makes a lighter colored beverage. It just depends on your drink preference for that particular day.
Start here this is a great movie. Shows how sugar affects our bodies. Shows scientific proof that sugar is just as addictive as cocaine.
Very well written and produced.
Lots of interesting information
My background of my mom being an attorney and me being super patriotic 365 days a year made me love this one. They show medical studies to the Supreme Court showing people getting healthier eating natural food. You have to watch the movie to see what happens. They made the documentary Forks Over Knives first so if you want to watch that one first before this one you can. Forks over Knives listed below.
After watching this I didn't want to eat any chicken. I'm now very cautious, and buy organic farm raised chicken.
I'm not a vegan, but I do not eat cows and pigs. It's hard on your heart. If you are going to eat beef, I recommend grass fed beef. I also recommend only eating it once a month. The American Heart Association recommendation is twice a week. It's your body you be the judge.
Oldie but Goodie
This one is cool you get to see the friendship and relationship that Top Chef's and Smart Bakers have with farmers. Farmers are the backbone of America!!
I loved these documentaries. Although I don't juice for breakfast, lunch, and dinner... I do enjoy having it as a snack from time to time. Check my blog Sippin' on Juice .
Has some good recipe ideas
Sippin' on fruit juice
I bought the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth® Juice Extractor - 67602 at Target for $49.99. It was cost friendly and worth every penny. It is super easy to clean and super easy to use. I love making fresh apple juice, with no added sugars or artificial ingredients. Just put some apples in the juicer and you have fresh homemade apple juice in a matter of minutes. I've made fresh grape juice many times. Kiwi juice is a fun tangy drink. Straight pineapple juice, which is great for boosting your immune system and fighting inflammation. A great drink to drink when everyone around you is sick. I also created a detox cucumber drink, it reminded me of spa water. Everytime I use to get massages at Massage Envy, they always had various spa waters made before you got your massage. With this juicer you can live the life of luxury without even leaving your home. The possibilities are endless...
Cheers to happy healthy life!!
Organic Carrot Juice
I definitely recommend these two documentaries. You can find them on Netflix. Start with the first documentary then watch number 2, because it follows up with some of the people in the first documentary. There are some great inspiring stories.
