WHAT I EAT IN A DAY (Vegan) | Summer Edition 🌞🌴

It has been a hot minute since I uploaded a what I eat in a day article on this YouTube blog and so today I’m super excited to be sharing with you, my favorite foods that I have been enjoying in the summer season. I feel like I’m, not your typical summer, eater in the sense that I still really really enjoy my warm hearty food in this season, but regardless.

I hope this article provides some inspiration for you to get into the kitchen and get creative and enjoy the amazing plant-based food. We have on this beautiful alrighty, let’s get into the article, and this is what I ate in a day in summer, as one of my favorite things to start the day with in summer will probably come as no surprise, and it is some kind of smoothie and Milkshake iced cacao combo, most of the time today I started with some frozen bananas as well as some oats.

Then I added in some salted caramel protein as well as some cacao powder, and then I used some sweetened hemp milk to top it all off. I then blended this all together until it was a nice and smooth consistency. I use a Vitamix for most of my blending by the way and then put it up into a nice jar, and this was a really really light, but decadent way to start the day. I feel like light and decadent might cancel each other out, but yeah I really enjoy it after this.

I then decided I was feeling something savory, so I first of all started by putting 1 chopped tomato as well as a handful of corn from the can that had been washed, of course, into a bowl. I then added in the juice of half of a lime, as well as a little bit of salt. I love making this sort of fresh salsa thing to go on lots of different things. To be honest, I feel like it’s just so easy to make and tastes really good.

To be honest, I then it got a loaf of glue, free bread. This is from a bakery on the Gold Coast called Marie Anita’s, which is a fully gluten-free Bakery. It’s really really good. I got two pieces of this bread and put half of an avocado on each slice, and then I topped it off with the fresh salsa that I had made as well as some pumpkin seeds, and this is a really really refreshing and light savory meal that I Really really enjoy having in the summertime when it is just too hot to even eat toast.

You know those feels one thing that I feel like I really crave. A lot in the summer is potato. I don’t know if it’s just in Australia, but it’s just like a lifestyle kind of thing that when you’ve just gone to the beach, I feel, like my body, is always craving like potato chips and that’s all so today I decided to honor those cravings and I Cut up five white potatoes into wedge sized pieces, and then I put them in the bowl with some olive oil, and then I mix this all together with my hand, so that it was distributed evenly once that was all done and then topped it with some salt.

As well as some pepper and paprika, I also love seasoning these with, like other mixed herbs, Moroccan seasoning. Honestly, I advise you to get creative with your seasoning, because it has completely transformed my cooking world. I baked these in the oven for about 40 minutes until they were nice and crispy and served them with some vegan mayonnaise, and this was a super simple efficient, really really tasty lunch to be honest, moving on to dinner and we are making one of my favorite Meals to make at the moment in particular my housemate Sam, is so good at making this food, I started first of all with half a block of tempeh and two pieces of gluten-free bread, and I toasted them in the oven by making croutons and tempeh as you Can probably tell then in a bowl I put a few stalks of kale leaves as well as a little bit of cucumber, which I had chopped as well as the juice of half a lime.

I have been loving lime in my summer food, as you may be able to notice once that was all put in the bowl I just mixed it all together until it distributed evenly. Then I like to add one of my absolute favorite foods, which is sun-dried tomatoes. I just feel like sun-dried tomatoes are so full of flavor and they add the perfect like burst, of flavor to any dish and then once my croutons and my tempeh had been baked in the oven for long enough, I topped it like, so I then also decided To add some vegan mayonnaise on top the vegan mayonnaise I like to use, is this: follow your heart vegenaise.

They also have a garlic one which is really young, and I put this on top. So this is essentially what I like to call a vegan Caesar salad. I really really enjoy it. I know that Caesar salads are like super particular, but this is what I call it. I love it and I have been especially enjoying it in the summer alrighty, my beautiful friends, so that is everything that I ate in a day, if you’re still here reading and make sure to go down to the comments below – and let me know what your summer Staple meals, I would absolutely love some inspiration for myself and love to hear what type of creative things you’re doing in the kitchen at the moment.

As always. Thank you so much for being here, and I will see you very soon for another article have a beautiful day. Bye,

A WEEK OF VEGAN BREAKFASTS // Easy & Delicious Recipes!

I hope you are doing very well today’s article, I’m going to show you what I ate in a week and a vegan for breakfast. In today’s article we have a healthy combination of both savory and sweet vegan. Breakfast ideas, so hopefully, if you feel a little stuck if you’re feeling a little bit repetitive, this can help you out quite a lot anyway. That’s enough for me: let’s get into the article.

This is a week of vegan breakfasts and I hope you enjoy alrighty. So on Monday morning I started my day with one of my favorite savory vegan breakfasts, and this is a chickpea scramble. I have made this many times on my youtube blog and everytime. It’s a little bit different because, as I learn and develop, I am learning the best way to make the chickpea scramble for today’s. I mashed up some chickpeas in a bowl with my hands and then I added in some nutritional yeast, plant-based, milk, salt and pepper.

Here. You could also add different spices and flavors if you would like to, but I like mine, pretty simple then over the head, I put some olive oil into a pan, allowed that to heat up and then add it into my chickpeas scramble mixture. As you can see, it looks very liquidy, but this is how I like it to be because it’s slowly but surely becomes more of like a solidified kind of vibe. If you see what’s happening there, you can pretty much see what’s going on, so I toasted two pieces of toast with this, and I then put them onto a plate with the chickpea scramble on top.

This again also would go really well with different sides like if you like to mushrooms for breakfast avocado, roasted tomatoes would all give it some more flavor. But I like mine, very, very simple. If you’ve never tried to p scramble for breakfast before, I really recommend giving it a go. Moving on to Tuesday – and I started my day with my absolute favorite smoothie bowl at the moment in a blender, I festival started with a splash of plant-based milk.

Some cacao and coconut protein frozen bananas, frozen raspberries and frozen blackberries, and I blended it all together until it had this really beautiful texture. This is pretty much the kind of texture that I like from my smoothie bowls and if you are interested by the way, I use a Vitamix for everything pretty much. It’s like the best thing that I own honestly anyway. I put this all into a bowl.

Put some fresh strawberries, some homemade chocolate, granola some peanut butter on top, and then I also put on some passion for it as well. Passion fruit is one of my favorite fruits, and it has been so good at the moment, and this is what I had for breakfast on Tuesday. The beauty of making smoothie bowls is, you, can mix them up and make so many different kinds and you’ll always be bound to find something that you like, and yet this is my personal favorite moving on to Wednesday and on Wednesday for breakfast, we are making something That I call a breakfast bruschetta and this is a great way to get your veggies in early in the day I first of all started by cutting up some cherry tomatoes.

I cut up, like I think, 10 to 12 cherry tomatoes, or something like that. If you’re new to my blog by the way, I will always put the full ingredient list down in the description box below. If you are wanting to try these at home and use the exact measurements, I put all the chopped cherry tomatoes into a bowl, and then I use some avocado and then I also put that into the bowl as well. And then I also used some fresh spring.

Onion, which is my favorite kind of onion, and then I also put in some kale, which I chopped into really fine pieces. Then I chopped a lemon in half and I used the juice of half of a lemon on top, as well as some salt and some pepper and mix that together roughly with my one, this was all nice and well mixed together. I then put two pieces of sourdough bread into the toaster until it was well, and then I put these two pieces of solder on top plate and very very simply, I just served the breakfast bruschetta mix on top again.

This is something that you could really mix up and add different stickers to if you’d like to I’ve, put a drizzle of olive oil on top for extra flavor. I love olive oil and pretty much everything as you may have noticed at this point, and that is what I had for breakfast on Wednesday moving on to Thursday, and I made a soaked, usually Bircher overnight, oats thing, whatever you would like to call it, that’s what It is, and in this one I put in oats flax, milk, chia seeds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds, I mix it all together roughly and then I added in some plant-based milk as well as some coconut yogurt.

It was passion, fruit, flavoured, coconut yogurt, and I mix that together then I decided I needed a little bit of extra flavor, so I added in some vanilla to it as well. You could add maple syrup or something like that. If you want it a bit more sweetness, then I put this in the fridge overnight and the next day is when I served it up for breakfast. This is a really good breakfast. If you’re someone, who is time poor and just needs to take something on the go with you in the morning as well, I just put some coconut milk, as well as some more coconut, yogurt and fresh passion fruit on top to give it a little bit more Sweetness – and that is what I had for breakfast on Thursday – again – something you can really mix up with lots of different flavors.

That’s the awesome thing about plant-based food. There is so much variety moving on to Friday and we have again roasted brekkie potatoes. Is there anything better than potatoes for breakfast? I honestly don’t know if there is so. I started by chopping up three potatoes into very small cube pieces, the smaller the better, in my opinion, for this recipe, and then I put all these potatoes into a medium-sized bowl and I drizzled them with some olive oil and also put in some salt and some Pepper then, using my hands.

I just mix this together roughly in a bowl until it was nice and well combined, and then I put it onto a lined baking tray into the oven for about like 20 to 30. Minutes obviously depends on how good your oven is. Mine is not that crash cause man in a pan. I just drizzled with some olive oil, and I put a handful of kale in there and I cooked that until it was nice and crispy. I also added a little bit of salt and pepper just for flavor and then into a bowl.

I served up the rest of potatoes with the fried kale and then also put a half of an avocado on top just for a bit of healthy fat. You can be breaking this morning and that’s what I have a break on Friday and now we’re going to move on to Saturday. It’s the weekend, yeah all righty Saturday we’re having an acai bowl one of my favorite foods in the whole entire world. I thought it was some plant-based milk, as well as some passion, fruit, coconut yogurt.

Then I followed that with some frozen bananas as well as some frozen raspberries, and then I put in my aside packet. Most of you will know by now that I love Amazonian products. I use their a savior and all of my acai bowls. I took the blender and blended this all up until it was nice and well combined and has a really nice thick consistency. And then I topped it with fresh fruit, and I went from orange and some passion, fruit and some more coconut yogurt on top and also with some peanut butter.

On top aside with that, peanut butter is not a thing, and then I had some fresh strawberries as well some chia seeds, and that is what I had for breakfast on Saturday – love a good acai bowl and love the fact that you can mix them up change. The flavor all that good stuff, okay, let’s move on to Sunday on Sunday, we are having like the most simple breakfast, but this is one that I am obsessed with at the moment, I started by first of all toasting two pieces of sourdough toast super super simple And then I put on my favorite combo, some vegan butter and some Vegemite Vegemite if you’re from Australia you’ll probably understand if you’re not most known, Australians, that I’ve met don’t like Vegemite, but I love it.

Then in a glass I started with some ice as well as some plant-based milk, and then I a chocolate mixture that I just made from water cacao, powder and maple syrup, and I had a nice little iced chocolate to go with my Vegemite toast for breakfast this Week, I hope you enjoy the article alrighty, my beautiful friend, so that is the week of being and breakfasts. I hope you got some nice ideas from the article and new things that you want to try and make in the kitchen.

All of these meals, like most of my meals, are very, very simple, and if you are interested in more recipe ideas, I have a whole bunch of a week of vegan food articles and I will link them down in the description box below if you’re new here And you like my content, I would really appreciate if you would subscribe and join our beautiful little community and as always, thank you so much for being here.

We are also going to share with you the simple things that we do on a daily basis that bring us happiness and joy.

So this is where we were two or three years ago.

We loved article photo all this type of work. We want to express ourselves artistically and we had a message to share out of health and wellness, but we didn’t know how to necessarily do it. This led us on a scouring Google search of reading YouTube articles, how to buy a camera, how to take photos? How to edit article, how to start a blog post or blog and that ultimately led us to skill sure where we have basically learned how to do what it is we’re doing right this very second right, so one of our favorite YouTube blogs actually had a message About skill share that kind of piqued our interest, so skill share calm.

It was we went on the website, and the awesome thing is that it makes the good choice the easy one, because you don’t have to go sit in a classroom on the campus and not be able to afford your classes, maybe not even love the classes that You paid for so that being said, skill share is totally affordable. It’s an online learning platform to help you further, your curiosities give –‘t is maybe even your career.

Yes, so we are super excited because we get to offer you guys a free two-month trial to our first 500 subscribers to click the link in our description below yea. So you can take classes on everything from how to chop a vegetable to how to start a blog to how to make a youtube article. You guys want a dedicated article on how we started our YouTube blog. Let us know in the link below that being said: new hobbies was just one part of our tip number one.

The other part is new experiences, so we absolutely love to travel and see the world. So we kind of combined our hobby with new experiences by bringing our cameras everywhere with us on the go. So we encourage you guys to travel somewhere book a trip. You’ve never been and tell your story in your own unique creative way. Tip number two get out in nature: go for a hike climb, a mountain swim down a river get in a canoe, whatever you have to do to get out and explore the world around you.

It can be as simple as flipping your shoes off and walking barefoot in the grass. This is a fantastic thing that you can do if you’ve been working at your work desk all day slip your shoes off at the end of the day and go walk around in the grass get yourself some pets get yourself. Some plants bring the outdoors in we’ve, got a plethora of houseplants. You guys have seen in one of our recent YouTube articles or better yet start a garden.

So tip number three have a spiritual practice, whether that’s sitting down every morning or evening, to read scripture to meditate to pray to simply give thanks get out in nature like Aaron mentioned before. Maybe you take a trip, go to Italy like we did and experience the awe and the wonder, there’s so much beauty in this world, and we say it’s God. We say it’s our Creator that has given us everything that we have.

He gives us the strength and the peace to remain happy and that’s our spiritual practice and we seriously recommend for everyone out there find a community and be a part of it. So these happiest places in the world. One of the things that they have in common is they live within walking distance from a church, a market a park, maybe even a gym, so living within walking distance from your community makes it that much easier to invest time with your community worst case.

You can invest your time at work, spending time getting to know those you work with, or even better find an online community like you’re doing right now, reading our blog, so our next tip is work. Do what you love or find a way to make your work fun because, let’s be honest, we can’t all quit our day jobs. I happen to be a landscaper by trade. I’ve got a trailer full of mulch to get to work on, but I love it and it’s not because it’s easy, but it’s because I love it, so do something you love or like we said before, find a new hobby that can maybe turn into something that Can make you money that could be a new source of income for you at the end of the day, if you can’t enjoy what it is, you’re doing, set boundaries between work and play and make sure to make the time for play healthy habit.

Number six is spend enough time with family and get the emotional support that you need so dusty just talked about work-life balance and it’s super important to not get too wrapped up in your own schedule and set that time for friends, family and loved ones. Right. So obviously, that’s a new thing for us, especially with max who, by the way, is passed out right here next to us. Okay, so we are learning as a small family as a new family.

How to find that intimacy that tucks, that that togetherness time we are so close to our parents and our siblings we’re super fortunate. So we take full advantage of that and there’s much family time, as we can great, so we’ve been able to share in so many exciting experiences with them. They’ve been able to see max grow up after max was born. We found ourselves going stir-crazy, so we found a lot of joy getting out getting by the pool going to the farmers market doing these things with our friends and with our families.

So we should all have at least a couple of close friends or family members that we can confide in that we can share anything and everything with get things off of our chest. It can almost be considered a form of there. In fact, I know that I feel a sense of release when I share things even with dusty, but find a couple of people and don’t be afraid to open up right, but maybe you’re thinking all my family is gone or I moved away.

There is no family even close to me. Well, your friends can be you do like we did in LA when we did our meetup or come on a retreat and join our eat. Move rest family with us and also on that note, aside from sharing your feelings, talk touch intimacy, so this is something that was totally new to me. When I came into Dusty’s family, I didn’t come from a very huggy touchy-feely family, but all of a sudden I was showered with hugs and handshakes galore, multiple upon arrival and departure, so it felt new and uncomfortable.

But now I’ve really come to love. It number seven practice gratitude and give back right. So this right here is a gratitude journal. This tiny note looks that’s right by my bed and every so often I’ll, open it and jot down two to three things that I’m grateful for so a lot of times. We can get caught up in social media and one of the downfalls of it is that it can make a spoke to me from time to time.

Maybe we wish that we looks different or we live somewhere different. Maybe we wish we had more than what we already have. The list goes on and on, but if I can be thankful so that I already have, I realize just how much I do have and giving back so Ann and I have made it made it a habit to give our time once in a while to volunteer. Like with the Special Olympics or a bike camp for children with disabilities, or even at our church, this last winter, my mom did a fundraiser for sleeping bags for the homeless.

Giving back can be super easy too, maybe you’re in the Starbucks drive-thru and you pay it forward or maybe you pop online and you donate to one of your favorite charities. We can link some of our favorites below in the description, so a healthy habit. Number eight is to move whether you’re going for a run or a ride, or maybe you just like to dance moving, produces good stress which in turn releases feel-good endorphins moving your body will make you happy.

Sometimes I spend too much time on my computer. I just feel drained of energy, it seems counterintuitive, but honestly, your body will give you more energy. So, on a day like today, when the rain has finally stopped and I’m feeling a little bit groggy a long walk with Aaron and Max is going to probably be the thing that makes me feel better, but I’m actually thinking about a bike ride tip number 9.

Rest little man, it’s just waking out from probably his third map of the day and one thing’s for sure babies know when they need to rest the rest as a new mom. I think it’s safe to say I know a thing or two about being sleep-deprived. But that being said aside from getting your eight hours of sleep, like we always say there are a ton of other ways that you can get your rest, so practicing meditation and mindfulness.

Even just kicking your feet up and spending some quality time with your loved ones again, so you can see a lot of these healthy habits are intertwined and the more that you can practice them, the more that you’ll feel you’re not checking off a list, but they’re Free-Flowing and that they all make you happy working in conjunction together. Okay, you guys our last and final tip is to nourish your body.

It all starts with what’s on your plate and what ultimately ends up in your mouth. On that note, aaron has got an epic stress, busting smoothie, for you guys now. Finally, you guys I’m going to be sharing with you. Our stress busting, smoothie favorite. This one is our choco mock-up protein smoothie. So I’m going to be cooling you in as to why these ingredients are so beneficial at boosting your mood and diminishing your stress.

Keep in mind this recipe is for two for this choco maca smoothie. You will need six frozen, ripe, speckled bananas, two tablespoons of cacao powder, two tablespoons of hemp, seeds, 2, teaspoons of maca powder and optionally. One scoop of chocolate plant protein you’ll also need a liquid of your choice. We are doing anywhere from 1 to 2 cups of almond milk. It’s best, if you can leave your bananas to set out for 10 to 15 minutes before blending, especially if you don’t have a high speed blender, but we’re going to place them into our Vitamix here and the reason bananas are so fantastic for.

Fighting stress is because they’re high in potassium, which can help, is you have muscle, cramps or eggs or spasms get those bananas in ingredient number two and my favorite is cacao. So it’s super high in polyphenols and flavonoids, which are antioxidants that increase serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is responsible for better mood, better sleep and reduced anxiety. Next is hemp seeds. So, aside from the fact that they’re super high in fatty acids, they’re also extremely high in magnesium, so magnesium increases the amount of GABA, which is another neurotransmitter in the body.

When that goes up stress anxiety, depression goes you down. It also helps your sore muscles up. Next is maca powder, which is an adaptogen, so adaptogens. I know and she’s surviving some of the harshest climates on the planet, they’re fantastic at adapting within the body as well, so they can help with stress management, anxiety, libido, energy and sleep all of the above. Yes, please I’m adding in this optional plant protein, because, especially if you’re highly active, it’s going to be great for repairing your muscles.

Finally, your liquid almond milk is another that has all kinds of beneficial stress busting, but here we are max, is well slept. We’re about to be well fed with our stress, busting, choco, maca smoothies, my gosh they’re, so so good and guess what you guys. The Sun came out, amazing, so yeah. We hope you guys enjoy these tips. A lot of them are common sense. Yes, but sometimes we need a simple reminder to invest in eating, moving and resting better enjoying our work.

More one final bonus tip spend some time with a baby as difficult and stressful as being new parents can sometimes be max knows how to be healthy and how to be happy. He eats when he’s hungry. He sleeps when he’s tired, he poops on-demand, eat. Poop. Rest folks spend some time with a happy baby and you will ultimately learn how to be happier for yourself. So yeah, you guys don’t forget about this special offer linked in the description below.

I’ve got a trailer full of mulch to get to work on, but I love it and it’s not because it’s easy, but it’s because I love it, so do something you love or like we said before, find a new hobby that can maybe turn into something that Can make you money that could be a new source of income for you at the end of the day, if you can’t enjoy what it is, you’re doing, set boundaries between work and play and make sure to make the time for play healthy habit.

Number six is spend enough time with family and get the emotional support that you need so dusty just talked about work-life balance and it’s super important to not get too wrapped up in your own schedule and set that time for friends, family and loved ones. Right. So obviously, that’s a new thing for us, especially with max who, by the way, is passed out right here next to us. Okay, so we are learning as a small family as a new family.

How to find that intimacy that tucks, that that togetherness time we are so close to our parents and our siblings we’re super fortunate. So we take full advantage of that and there’s much family time, as we can great, so we’ve been able to share in so many exciting experiences with them. They’ve been able to see max grow up after max was born. We found ourselves going stir-crazy, so we found a lot of joy getting out getting by the pool going to the farmers market doing these things with our friends and with our families.

So we should all have at least a couple of close friends or family members that we can confide in that we can share anything and everything with get things off of our chest. It can almost be considered a form of there. In fact, I know that I feel a sense of release when I share things even with dusty, but find a couple of people and don’t be afraid to open up right, but maybe you’re thinking all my family is gone or I moved away.

There is no family even close to me. Well, your friends can be you do like we did in LA when we did our meetup or come on a retreat and join our eat. Move rest family with us and also on that note, aside from sharing your feelings, talk touch intimacy, so this is something that was totally new to me. When I came into Dusty’s family, I didn’t come from a very huggy touchy-feely family, but all of a sudden I was showered with hugs and handshakes galore, multiple upon arrival and departure, so it felt new and uncomfortable.

But now I’ve really come to love. It number seven practice gratitude and give back right. So this right here is a gratitude journal. This tiny note looks that’s right by my bed and every so often I’ll, open it and jot down two to three things that I’m grateful for so a lot of times. We can get caught up in social media and one of the downfalls of it is that it can make a spoke to me from time to time.

Maybe we wish that we looks different or we live somewhere different. Maybe we wish we had more than what we already have. The list goes on and on, but if I can be thankful so that I already have, I realize just how much I do have and giving back so Ann and I have made it made it a habit to give our time once in a while to volunteer. Like with the Special Olympics or a bike camp for children with disabilities, or even at our church, this last winter, my mom did a fundraiser for sleeping bags for the homeless.

Giving back can be super easy too, maybe you’re in the Starbucks drive-thru and you pay it forward or maybe you pop online and you donate to one of your favorite charities. We can link some of our favorites below in the description, so a healthy habit. Number eight is to move whether you’re going for a run or a ride, or maybe you just like to dance moving, produces good stress which in turn releases feel-good endorphins moving your body will make you happy.

Sometimes I spend too much time on my computer. I just feel drained of energy, it seems counterintuitive, but honestly, your body will give you more energy. So, on a day like today, when the rain has finally stopped and I’m feeling a little bit groggy a long walk with Aaron and Max is going to probably be the thing that makes me feel better, but I’m actually thinking about a bike ride tip number 9.

Rest little man, it’s just waking out from probably his third map of the day and one thing’s for sure babies know when they need to rest the rest as a new mom. I think it’s safe to say I know a thing or two about being sleep-deprived. But that being said aside from getting your eight hours of sleep, like we always say there are a ton of other ways that you can get your rest, so practicing meditation and mindfulness.

Even just kicking your feet up and spending some quality time with your loved ones again, so you can see a lot of these healthy habits are intertwined and the more that you can practice them, the more that you’ll feel you’re not checking off a list, but they’re Free-Flowing and that they all make you happy working in conjunction together. Okay, you guys our last and final tip is to nourish your body.

It all starts with what’s on your plate and what ultimately ends up in your mouth. On that note, aaron has got an epic stress, busting smoothie, for you guys now. Finally, you guys I’m going to be sharing with you. Our stress busting, smoothie favorite. This one is our choco mock-up protein smoothie. So I’m going to be cooling you in as to why these ingredients are so beneficial at boosting your mood and diminishing your stress.

Keep in mind this recipe is for two for this choco maca smoothie. You will need six frozen, ripe, speckled bananas, two tablespoons of cacao powder, two tablespoons of hemp, seeds, 2, teaspoons of maca powder and optionally. One scoop of chocolate plant protein you’ll also need a liquid of your choice. We are doing anywhere from 1 to 2 cups of almond milk. It’s best, if you can leave your bananas to set out for 10 to 15 minutes before blending, especially if you don’t have a high speed blender, but we’re going to place them into our Vitamix here and the reason bananas are so fantastic for.

Fighting stress is because they’re high in potassium, which can help, is you have muscle, cramps or eggs or spasms get those bananas in ingredient number two and my favorite is cacao. So it’s super high in polyphenols and flavonoids, which are antioxidants that increase serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is responsible for better mood, better sleep and reduced anxiety. Next is hemp seeds. So, aside from the fact that they’re super high in fatty acids, they’re also extremely high in magnesium, so magnesium increases the amount of GABA, which is another neurotransmitter in the body.

When that goes up stress anxiety, depression goes you down. It also helps your sore muscles up. Next is maca powder, which is an adaptogen, so adaptogens. I know and she’s surviving some of the harshest climates on the planet, they’re fantastic at adapting within the body as well, so they can help with stress management, anxiety, libido, energy and sleep all of the above. Yes, please I’m adding in this optional plant protein, because, especially if you’re highly active, it’s going to be great for repairing your muscles.

Finally, your liquid almond milk is another that has all kinds of beneficial stress busting, but here we are max, is well slept. We’re about to be well fed with our stress, busting, choco, maca smoothies, my gosh they’re, so so good and guess what you guys. The Sun came out, amazing, so yeah. We hope you guys enjoy these tips. A lot of them are common sense. Yes, but sometimes we need a simple reminder to invest in eating, moving and resting better enjoying our work.

More one final bonus tip spend some time with a baby as difficult and stressful as being new parents can sometimes be max knows how to be healthy and how to be happy. He eats when he’s hungry. He sleeps when he’s tired, he poops on-demand, eat. Poop. Rest folks spend some time with a happy baby and you will ultimately learn how to be happier for yourself. So yeah, you guys don’t forget about this special offer linked in the description below.

Best summer cocktail recipe low carb

Here’s a nice low-carb recipe for you that I concocted after much experimentation and I think it’s a pretty decent, refreshing and buzz worthy drink that you can enjoy this summer or any day for that matter.

But it’s a good summer drink, cuz, it’s cold and refreshing. So, basically, what it is, it’s a low carb drink made with a combination of spiked Seltzer’s and a little bit of vodka and some non-alcoholic seltzer and ice, of course, in a big giant Cup. But basically here here the ingredients you start out with. I choose the Smirnoff spiked sparkling seltzer, it doesn’t matter what flavor in this case and I’ll tell you why, in a minute, the second ingredient is a can of crooking marker spiked, Seltzer spiked.

What I forget, the exact spiked and sparkling, or something like that. I chose peach because I’ve tried a bunch of the flavors, not all of them, but I chose peach because it made this drink. What it is, it’s sort of like a peach. What do you call those schnapps it had? It had a really good taste, and the next thing you need to buy is a 50 milliliter airline bottle of vodka. Now I have tried a lot of vodkas and they are very different in terms of how you might feel the next day.

I recommend the Western Sun brand, it’s a dollar for a 50 milliliter bottle and one little bottle of that makes for 32 ounce drinks. That’s a gallon of summer cocktails you’ll, see when I explain in a minute, and you also need to have on hand some non-alcoholic flavored seltzer. I like the shop right-brain because they’re cheap right now. I see, I still think they’re a 40 cents, a liter which makes about two drinks give or take maybe a little more than two drinks in this recipe and, of course, you’re going to need a scale.

You don’t need it if you, if you’re, really an expert, and you can do it all by eye. But I recommend for the first few drinks that you use a kitchen scale because you’re going to weigh instead of a measuring cup, it’s just a faster way of making the drink instead of pouring in a measuring cup and so on. Because some some of the measurements are going to be very little and it’s good to have a scale wait and next year I like using 32 ounce ball jars or mason jars.

They’re called, but you know, fill it up with a certain amount ice. Not all the way, depending on whether your drinks are previously refrigerated, you feel it about a quarter or a third of the way with ice. That’s you can adjust that to your preferences later on and and that’s it and basically what I like to do is I add ginger powder, like a half a teaspoon of ginger powder, 1/4 teaspoon. I forget how much that’s and I put a squirt of lemon juice in before I put the the ice jar on the scale and what you do is you put the ice jar on the scale and tore it out or in in my case I just turned The scale on with the the weight already on and it zeros out right in the beginning.

But what if you know how to use a kitchen scale, you tore it out and it resets it to zero. And then then it starts counting everything that you add in. So what I like to do is I put a I put the the drink on the scale and I put 12 milliliters between 12 and 13. It’s actually twelve and a half, but my scale doesn’t measure that low 12 to milliliters of vodka in that’s one quarter of an airline bottle.

Yes, you only use a little bit and then next, what I do is I put in six ounces or half a can of Smirnoff spiked sparkling seltzer. I picked that because this Smirnoff spiked sparkling Seltzer, with the exception of the Pina Colada, which is the king of the hill, still it’s not the most flavorful drink, and now I mean it, but it’s a good drink cause. It’s a very low carb one half a gram of carbs per half can and it’s a good buzz.

It’s a nice buzz. So the next thing I put in is 1/4 of one can of crook and marker low-carb CELTA. They use a riff at all to sweeten that drink and it you one can straight is ridiculously sweet. It’s overly sweet for people like us at least maybe some people like that level of sweetness, especially if they’re used to eating a lot of sugar in their life. But anyway, I put I determined after much experimentation that a quarter can was plenty of flavor to make your refreshing summer cocktail, not too overwhelming or not too sweet tasting, so that works out to about 2.

8 ounces or, if you want to you know, I highly recommend You just keep the scale on milliliters it’s about 70 milliliters of fluid and by the way, there’s six ounces of Smirnoff before was about a hundred and 70 milliliters. So you got 12 milliliters of vodka 170 milliliters of Smirnoff spiked sparkling seltzer and 70 milliliters of or was it 80? I think I can’t remember any more than 70 or 80. Oh god.

I can’t remember where I don’t have my notes, but anyway maybe it is 80, 80 milliliters of crook and marker. And then you fill the rest up with your seltzer and stir it up and you’re good to go and it’s it’s damn delicious and it works out to be the same amount of alcohol as just you drinking one of cells around four and a half percent alcohol Per 12 ounces, but when you consider that it’s a mason jar filled with ice and other Seltzer, it cuts the alcohol down to about half.

So my guess is, and that includes the ice melt in the process. My guess is it’s about a two and a half percent or two and a quarter percent alcohol drink and it’s very refreshing you can drink. So you can. All you really need is two cans of Smirnoff spiked sparkling seltzer. That makes four drinks one can of crook and marker. That also makes four drinks and one little airline bottle of Western Sun vodka.

I recommend and your ice and maybe two liters of other Seltzer is all you need and, like I said, lemon juice or any other kind of additive you want to put in there, but extremely refreshing and for four will be good for a long afternoon or a Nice evening drinking that’s a gallon of flu. That’s all! So, supposing you don’t let all the ice melt? Maybe it’s a 110 ounces of fluid, that’s enough to keep most average human beings quenched and satisfied, but it truly is something especially if you have a nice pool or a nice patio with the umbrellas and nice tables it.

It’s a great drink to enjoy this summer and it won’t mess you up for won’t mess you up. I should do a little footnote here. That’s my body weight, I’m 200 pounds, your own little alcohol barometer will vary. I mean I wouldn’t recommend a hundred pound girl drink, four of them definitely going to wreck them and also be very careful and and try not to use more than the recommended amount of vodka that I suggested 12 milliliters per drink.

Because if you use more, you will easily over drink and it won’t hit until it’s too late and you’re going to feel pretty woozy and crappy the next day. If you drink too much vodka mixed in this I’ve had that happen to me more than once twice to be exact, and I actually was almost useless the following day. If I I think I tripled the amount of vodka, I was putting like 30 something 30 or 40 milliliters in I almost doubled the alcohol.

My journey, I was drinking like six or eight percent drinks and I drank six of them and I was a wreck. So if you care about throttling your alcohol, you really need to stay in control of how much you put in it, because that vodka, that vodka can really cause trouble for you, but this is a good drink. Let me try it please someone at least one person. Please try it it’s a it’s a fun drink to enjoy, and it’s not expensive and that’s it.

I hope you enjoy your weekend.


I highly recommend any drink with Spunks! Awesome pumpkin seeds with a kick!
