This is one of my most favorite ways to prepare our apples anytime we are going on a trip in the car, a hike, or if I'm just super on top of it and prepping lunch stuff for the kids (that last one doesn't happen often 😜)
I sliced up 4 big apples and put them in a bowl of cold water with ice along with 4 drops of orange essential oil. Let them hang out for 5 or 10 minutes, and then set them on a towel to dry! They stay extra crispy and don't brown for days, and orange give them such a delicious taste...my boys go nuts over them!
This 15 mL bottle of orange is only $10.75 and has so many uses ! Put it on your wool dryer balls, put it in a de-stressing blend, or defuse it when you are in need of a little bit of uplifting! Definitely one of those oils I'm so glad to have on hand, and you can't beat the price.
So I just made this smoothie and it ended up tasting even better than I imagined so I thought I’d share the recipe, ha!
1/2 cup almond milk
big handful of spinach
1 small banana
1/2 cup frozen cherries
1 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
1 scoop protein powder (I used vanilla spice, but if you use chocolate I assume you could omit the cocoa powder)
1/4 cup uncooked oats
Handful of ice
Blend until desired consistency and done. Tastes like a chocolate cherry milkshake and I'm in heaven.
Guys, it's hard running a business from home, especially when you have three littles underfoot. Nonetheless, I am so grateful for what I get to do and am overcome with joy each time I see one of your little ones wearing something I dreamt up.
Since moving, the new studio space has been a work in progress so I thought I'd share a few sneak peeks of what's been going on in there.
Peanut butter protein bites! I shared a quick tutorial for how to make this recipe on Instagram stories a couple of weeks ago, but wanted to document it here for those of you who didn't screenshot it, or would like to reference back later! I love these for a little mid afternoon snack, or for a dessert after dinner, and my kids and husband love them too! Here's the recipe:
2 cups oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 cup water
2 scoops protein powder
1/4 cup mix-ins (cacao nibs, coconut, chopped nuts - whatever!!)
Mix all ingredients in a bowl until they are combined. Portion out with a tablespoon and roll into balls, and keep in the fridge or freezer.
Recipe should make around 18, eat 2 per serving.
Into a roller, and fill the rest of the bottle with fractionated coconut oil. Apply to wrists, back of neck and behind ears.
I also put Valor II over my heart and I felt SO good…just grounded and calm and not stressed! I have a tendency to get overly anxious and overwhelmed easily, so you can bet that this roller will be following me everywhere.
