Sometimes, summer just sneaks up on you.. It’s often the littlest things that make the biggest difference to your health. Staying hydrated is one of those simple, inexpensive, things….
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.

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.
