After-Sun Savior

When I was 13 years old and visiting my best friend in Florida, I got a terrible, blistering sunburn. It was pretty scary, and I watched my nose swell like a small potato, and my cheeks flamed with heat. My friend’s mother went outside, cut a leaf from the aloe plant, sliced it open, and instructed me to apply the sap inside to my skin. I watched in awe as the aloe healed my tender, blistered face. When I arrived back home, I swore to never burn again. I was in my early teens when I began using sunscreen and aloe, and I’m happy to say that I’m still a huge fan. Lavender and Roman chamomile are both soothing and anti-inflammatory. If you want a spray instead of a gel, use aloe vera juice and keep refrigerated in a glass spray bottle. Aloe vera gel and juice are found in health food stores. Try to find an organic brand. It’s always best to store aloe in a glass container, rather than plastic as chemicals from the plastic can leach into your juice. Ingredients 1 c pure aloe vera gel 40 drops lavender essential oil 20 drops Roman chamomile essential oil…

Raspberry Pecan Chia Pudding

I spoke recently about superfoods and smoothies at an event in Washington, DC, and I was surprised at how many people had never tried, or even heard of chia seeds. Is that you? Chia seeds benefit us with anti-inflammatory properties; they’re a healthy source of Omega 3 fatty acids, high in fiber and protein, and smoothie lovers appreciate how they thicken naturally when these tiny seeds are added to liquid. They taste almost like old school tapioca pudding. Here’s my latest version of chia pudding. I prefer using liquid stevia to keep my sugar intake in check, but you can use whatever healthy sweetener you have in the cupboard. Fresh raspberries are abundant right now, and southern pecans make me feel like summer. Here’s hoping you love it! Ingredients 2 cup coconut milk 15 drops liquid vanilla stevia (note: you can substitute 2 tsp of maple syrup or honey if you desire) 1/2 cup whole chia seeds 1 teaspoon vanilla extract pinch sea salt 1 teaspoon raw cacao powder 1 cup fresh raspberries plus extra for topping 1/4 cup chopped pecans for topping 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon for topping Preparation 1. In a 1-quart mason jar or other container with…
