Video: DIY Hemp Milk

  From morning smoothies, to creative desserts, to topping cereals, I make sure to keep a DIY non-dairy milk on hand…always. One of the easiest and healthiest choices is hemp milk. Tiny hemp seeds are a powerhouse of nutrition, containing all of the amino acids your body needs in a day; especially useful for you Flexible Vegetarians and Modern Vegans out there. Protein? Check. This recipe is beyond simple, and highly affordable too, especially for you moms buying the stuff in bulk. I shared my simple method with The Daily Meal the other day. Watch me in action below.

Video: How to slice a pepper

I love using a fresh bell pepper in soups, stir fries, and to dip in my favorite healthy hummus. I struggled for years, however, figuring out the most efficient way to slice them. It must be a common problem, because The Daily Meal just recently asked me to demonstrate my trick to simple slicing with their audience. Get that hummus ready, this video (and the gorgeous pepper it features) is going to have you reaching for the cutting board. And here are some of my favorite recipes to use those red peppers in! “Raw” Zucchini Hummus Farro and Lentil Salad Texas Caviar

Video : Healing Tea with Turmeric and Ginger

  I’m a big fan of simple, soothing, homemade drinks, or “teas”, and I shared one of my favorite recipes with The Daily Meal recently. All you need is fresh ginger, turmeric, and your favorite tea kettle. Sit back, sip, and let the superfoods do the rest. Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory, and ginger is too. Ginger also soothes your digestion, (remember when ginger ale really contained ginger?) and has anti-biotic properties as well. Ingredients 2 cups water 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger 1/2 tsp dried turmeric (unless you can find it fresh, then use that) 1 tbsp raw, local honey to taste 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice Preparation Heat water in a small saucepan until it’s nearly boiling. Add ginger and turmeric, lower the heat and allow to simmer for 10 minutes. Strain the liquid into a mug, and stir in honey and lemon juice to taste.

The Dirty Dozen Food Additives

  Part of the reason I wrote Discover Your Nutritional Style is because I believe that most of the physical, and emotional issues that people face today can be improved or eliminated by making changes to their diet. In my book, I call out the “Bad Boys” of nutrition, and that includes all processed foods. I’ve seen, first hand, the enormous difference that eliminating processed foods can make. At the very least, you owe it to yourself to learn what’s really in those foods, so that you can make an informed decision. It is guaranteed to surprise you. That’s why I love sharing the Environmental Working Group (EWG). They’re a well researched source of information about what’s really in our foods, cosmetics, cleaning products, sunscreen, and more. The EWG website is full of user-friendly information that’s easy to find, and understand. Best-known for their Dirty Dozen guide to produce, highlighting produce infected with chemicals and pesticides, the EWG has become a wonderful tool for living a clean and healthy lifestyle. I’ve referred to their informative guides over and over throughout the years, and you’ll find them in my book, as well. Now, the EWG has come to our rescue again,…
