Paleo (ohhhh don’t mind if I do)

If any of you have had the TERRIBLE TERRIBLE misfortune (like I have) of a doctor telling you that you have to stop eating gluten, you have my sincere sympathy. However, you also have my wonderful find of these incredible cassava and coconut tortillas by Siete. I found them at whole foods and I can’t say enough how much I like them. Give them a try, my lovelies.


gettin’ juicy with it

So, I’m doing this cleanse for the month of February, trying to give my liver a break so it can heal itself. I’ve had some liver issues lately, and Briana came across a cleanse and invited me to do it with her. We dragged our husbands along with us and so far it’s been 9 days of no caffeine, no alcohol, and absolutely no sugar. Yes, no coffee at all, even decaf can cause some of the issues I’m trying to correct, so it’s been a long 9 days. One of the aspects of the cleanse is to start your mornings with warm lemon water, which I’ve been doing. Sleepy-Adora has been digging lemon seeds out of mugs before she even has a chance to wake up. No bueno. So, I was so excited last night when I found this adorable juicer and it was only $14, making one of the 3 things I can afford from there. This morning I gave it a try and I’m in love with it. It gets the lemon juicer out much faster and more efficiently than just squeezing slices into your mug like I’ve been doing. The smartest part is the filter, a couple of holes in the front of it keep your lemon seeds from being able to slip down into your mug.
Anyway, I think this adorable little contraption is just great. Run out and pick one up, and let me know if you enjoy it as much as I am!

Pad Thai

padthaifomtobuPad Thai is delicious. Just the thought of pad thai with sriracha gets people out of bed in the morning. People = me. There’s a Thai place in Coral Springs, FL near our apartment called Tobu Thai & Sushi, that has the best pad thai I’ve ever EVER had. If you’re in south Florida go check it out and get the chicken pad thai! Josh recommends the gyoza and the JB tempura roll.

Seriously, order. They deliver.

Make your own Astringent

the secret is, you're already done

the secret is, you’re already done

This is a pretty complicated process so try and keep up.
Step 1: Get a bottle of witch hazel
Step 2: Open it
Step 3: Use it as astringent

compare the ingredients

You’re done. Witch hazel is all natural, it’s a plant! Every part of the witch hazel plant is high in tannins from the leaves, to the bark. They take those pieces of the plant and through a steam distillation process you get what you can buy at the store. It’s $1 or $2 and it’s so much better. I think it works as well as name brand astringents, but you can rest assured you’re not rubbing chemicals and dyes all over your face.


Why my salt is pink


pretty in pink

Why is my salt pink? Well, Briana told me about originally, but I think An Organic Wife explained it best:

We’ve all been taught that salt is necessary but should be used in extreme moderation for the greatest health, especially normal blood pressure. This is true. Kind of.

Table salt, and even sea salt, are devoid of most nutrients, and should be limited or eliminated. The salt you should be using is Himalayan Salt, also called Pink Himalayan Salt or Pink Himalayan Sea Salt.

Himalayan Salt contains the same 84 minerals and nutrients found in the human body. Table salt is processed to remove almost all of these minerals and nutrients. This is why table salt is pure white and Himalayan Salt has a pink tint to it. Most salt companies add one mineral back in – iodine. Iodine is essential to health, and a lack of it causes the most obvious disease, goiter. Goiter often leads to the thyroid disease called hypothyroidism.

If we’re comparing salt to sugar, table salt is the equivalent of white sugar, and Himalayan Salt is the equivalent of sucanat. Himalayan Salt is unrefined and unprocessed. It is mined by hand from 250 million year old salt caves in the Himalayan Mountain Range, which means that it is untouched by most toxins and pollutants that pervert regular sea salt.

Just a few of the health benefits of using Himalayan Salt include: it is anti-aging, replenishes electrolytes, reduces muscles cramps, regulates blood pressure, prevents cellulite, promotes sinus health, and increases bone health.

One of the other great things about Himalayan Salt is that you really cannot use too much. The daily recommended amount of regular table salt is about ¼ teaspoon. Since Himalayan Salt is used and assimilated by the body it can be used more freely. If you’re nervous about it and need a number, then know that one full teaspoon of Himalayan Salt a day is not unreasonable! Contrary to popular belief, we do not use more salt than was used centuries ago. In fact, our ancestors used great amounts of salt to preserve meats way before the refrigerator ever came around. The exception is for those whose diet is mostly processed or fast food.

You can find Himalayan Salt at most health food stores. To ensure that it is true Himalayan Salt, it should be pink in color; this may be light to dark pink. In addition, this type of salt is actually safe for animals and can increase their vitality.


It tastes just as good as (if not better than) white table salt, but it’s so much better for you! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
