Superfoods: Raw Soup Class. ‘Manna – The Ubuntu Living Show’

Welcome back to raw food prep class. Today, we’ve got another delicious recipe for you and we’re going to get into some of the liquid feasting, and what do I mean by that? I mean soups, making soups once again, soup making is one of those staple foods.

Everyone eats soup, everyone. Most people know how to make soup. Soup is normally just boiling vegetables in water until it just become soup. What we’re going to do today is make soup, probably faster than you’ve ever made before tastier than you’ve ever seen. Tasted. Well, when you make it yourself tastier than you would have ever tasted before and colorful, amazingly colorful, not losing all of that color in the cooking and we’re going to do that is with using our blender.

🙂 – >FUNFACT: Pumpkin seeds are a great addition to Soups!

Now, once again, I’m going to be using the power blender, but you can use a hand blender with this recipe or you can use a normal smoothie maker with this recipe it will work with that. You might just need to build a little bit longer. The recipe we’re going to be doing is a tomato and red pepper soup. So we’re going to be blending up tomatoes, red peppers and some other ingredients, and literally five minutes.

Your supers done on the table ready to be eaten soup normally as a half day to hold a affair with things slowly simmering and adding spices and getting the flavors right. Will this recipe it’s so easy, just tucking in a blender turning it on and having an awesome soup? So let’s get started you’ll notice. The first thing in the blender is that it’s got some water in it. Now this waters been warmed through slightly.

So that’s a boil: there’s just gotten a bit hot. That way we can have a hot soup and some of you were wondering or cold soups. None about that doesn’t have to be cold. You can have it warm by using hot water as your base. Okay, so we’ve got the hot water in there and now we’re going to get going with the tomatoes first and that’s some great big Tomatoes here start with 3, i’m going to pull off the little green, but that is actually poisonous.

If you have enough of that. Just chopping it into quarters is fine for the blender, so tomatoes are great to eat because they got a lot of something called lycopene in it. What happens with like a penis? It becomes more absorbable available when you’re blending it or you when you’re cooking it. As I’m not partial to cooking, I prefer blending it and using warm water does the same thing, but if you look at it tomato by cutting it open and certain segments of it as well, when you look at it, it’s just got the most beautiful water eNOS.

It’s great for for getting liquid into our systems for higher for making us hydrated, and it’s also particularly good for for the lungs and for the reproductive system with the seeds. Many benefits with tomatoes: okay to more urgently for tomatoes, are in next we go out red peppers. Now these are beautiful. Looking red peppers thing to remember with your red pepper, is that a green pepper is green because it’s not ripe, whereas a red pepper is a green pepper, that’s ripe! So it’s not there’s a different kind of pepper.

It’s just that the ones picked when it’s actually ripe and picking fruit when it’s ripe is much better for your health and picking fruit when it’s not ripe, because the fruit draws up all the nutrients at the end of its ripening period. So that’s when you’re getting most of the flavor developing as well. So it’s had a chance to ripen on the plant to absorb all those minerals in it that your body craves we’re going to chop that up into two squares to blend that through nicely as well.

This is another reason why, when you go to the shops, red peppers are more expensive than green peppers, because it’s quicker to grow something when you pick it not right to letting it grow all the way to being ripe. Okay, now he has an important question: what do you do with that? The seeds of the pepper you take it outside and you throw it in your garden and then it’s going to grow pepper plants, never waste anything out of your garden.

This is how many pepper plants does that maybe 30 or 40 red pepper plants that you can grow and, if you think of how much money that’s going to save you in the long run. Just from planting this, one pepper seeds phenomenal so really get into any of the fruit that you have, if you cut it open and their seeds in it, put it in your vegetable garden. True, okay, let’s do one more I like to add but more of this because it gives the super bit more of a texture to it.

It’s not so watery Tomatoes quite watery, so it does make the soup quite watery excellent, but the peppers in so tomatoes peppers. What else we got? Ah red, onions? Ok, so I use red onions. I prefer red onions to white onions because they’re red now the color in food indicates the antioxidants in the food antioxidants. Remember those things that stop us from rusting from the inside out and the more color it has the deeper the colors.

The more antioxidants are present, so the red onions got plenty of antioxidants in it. I’r just going to need about a quarter of a red onion for this amount of soup. Yeah quarter, rest of your red onion, keep and use that for another soup. Okay, now we’re going to get into some more flavoring aspects. We start off with basil. We’ve got a mixture of purple and green basil once again, purple color amazing, color too there’s so few foods are actually purple.

So if you can get hold of purple basil, excellent, excellent potent strong, smelling and tasting basil, so we’re given these or rinse we’re just going to pop all of that in their mothers or finish its go basil and bezels also incredibly easy herb to grow in your Garden, get a seedling, get some seed, get it growing. It really likes a lot of sunlight, so it’s normally only going to grow in the middle or towards the end of summer.

Okay. What else do we have for flavor? We have a little bit of rock salt, and this is Himalayan rock salt. It’s a type of salt. That’s been laid down, thousands, if not millions of years ago, and it’s a complete mineral salt like sea salt is so yeah. You could choose either sea salt or rock salt. I put a bit of that in this is very different salt to the salt that you get you buy, packets of iodized, table salt iodized table salt is not the same thing.

It’s gone through a process where a lot of the minerals are lost and a lot of toxic things are added to it. So make sure you getting a natural source of salt, either sea salt or rock salt is a thing to go through. Go for okay. What else have we got? Ah now we like to have our soup a little creamy, but I’m not going to use any animal cream in here. So i’m going to use nuts and I’ve got some cashew nuts raw cashew nuts and they’ll, give it a creaminess and slack more of a heaviness to the soup to make it more filling.

So I’m just going to put about a handful of cashews in there. Two more there we go. What else is on the table? We’ve got some olive oil, olive oil again bit of an oil eNOS and taste to you, soup for your soup. So just add in about a tablespoon to two tablespoons in there yeah that’ll. Do it that’ll sink through, and then we have all these ones? Let’s put these and go G berries. Now I talked about go geez all the time, because they’re amazing amazing, amazing food.

They have incredible nutritional values to them, so add them into whatever you can now. The reason I want to put them in the soup, firstly, is the color we’re trying to make a red soup red go G. Berries will make it an amazing red orange color. Second reason I want to add the goji berries is for its thickening properties. Go geez make the soup thick, so it acts as a natural thickness. You don’t have to use any other thickness yea once again, not a handful will be fine for that excellent got the goji zip.

Obviously the main thing the goat cheese are doing is upping the nutrient density of our soups and making it have more nutritional value for us and remember we eat for nutritional value. So you want to keep thinking I’m going to add the nutritional value of this meal. What else have I got our got a little bit of cayenne, pepper now, Kane pepper is a type of chili and I like to add chili pot, especially to the red soup color again, but also that spiciness goes very well with the red pepper and with the Tomato, if you don’t like spicy food, you don’t have to add it and Kane pepper is very spicy, so be careful that you don’t add too much in there.

Nothing i’m going to put in about half a teaspoon, I’m actually looking forward to a bit of spiciness. Today and in winter adding spices to your soup is an excellent way of making it warming to the body. So all our ingredients in you can see. I amazingly had layers other thing: you’ll notice is I’ve laded that the most water content foods are at the bottom. So that means that the tomato has got most water in its at the bottom and then goes.

I have to dry a dryer. That’s so that the blades, when they start spinning, have something to grab onto because if you throw the dry stuff in first it’ll, probably get stuck and then you’ll have to use the tamper to squash it or take it all out and put it back in. So this makes it blend a lot easier. Other things you could add are things like garlic. If you like garlic or any other herbs or aghanim is one that comes to mind, but you can play with flavors there.

But let’s get this blending and see what it looks like ready. You want to leave it blending, so you don’t hear, knocks and things because when it’s knocking the little bits are so solid bouncing around. We want a suit to be completely smooth, so you want to blend it until it’s looks and sounds like it’s completely smooth, so very much depends on what you’ve actually put in the blender okay. Now one of the most important things, obviously is the taste test.

Because have you put enough salt? Did you put in too much spice you’ve got to test all of the stuff and that you really can do only with your taste buds. So a teaspoon comes in handy for that wow. That is quite spicy, but I love it. It is excellent, so I’m going to pull that out into a bowl. You can see the amazing orange color in that. If you wanted a more red, you can add in more cane pepper or more goji, berries that’ll make it more red.

Now you have to garnish something properly and what I like the most is the sprouts that I’ve grown in the kitchen garden sprout errs. These are falfa amazing sprouts. Most people have had our felt at some point: grow them in your kitchen, garden, sprouter and then use a handful of that on top perfect. Now, you’ve got some living green sprout energy in your soup, and that’s it. We’ve made a tomato soup, it’s taken us maximum five minutes, it tastes amazing.

It looks amazing anyone’s going to be impressed and think that you’ve been slaving away at the stove for hours, but all you’ve done is just blended up a few things. So we’re going to tuck into that and enjoy that and try this at home see how it works out. If it’s not going smooth enough, maybe you need to likely steam your vegetables to get it soft enough. Maybe your blender can’t handle the the solidness, but just try it you’ll figure out a way to make it delicious now.

Why is this soup better than buying a soup or four shelf in a supermarket somewhere packaged one a ready made meal? Firstly, you’ve put your own love attention and energy into making it mom’s food always tastes better than any other food, and there’s a reason for that, because she loves to feed her children and in that way, when someone makes it themselves there’s always an energy of love And caring that comes through with that food and that can’t be matched with anything that you’re buying the shop.

Secondly, you’ve had control over the ingredients, so you know exactly what’s gone in there. You know you’ve put in good organic ingredients and you have not put in any poisons what poisons could be in there. Well, there could be preservatives that could be flavorants. It could be colorants. There could be all manner of poisons present in package soups that you got to be careful of. You have to read the ingredients and then you’ll learn about that.

What else yeah it’s as quick as may be pouring something in and mixing it through. Maybe a little bit longer, but certainly not as long as doing on a stove. So blending is much quicker for that and I suppose also you learning how to feed yourself as opposed to relying on a shop or someone else to do it for you, which is so important to do, knowing what to do for yourself to nourish yourself. Taking that time for yourself to actually honor your body, it’s the only body you have in this life and, if you’re expecting someone else to do it for you, it’s not going to happen.

You’re just going to get inferior grade low nutrient dense foods that are not going to give your body what it needs, which is that nutrient boost. The other thing, of course, is that the extreme processing that a lot of these things go in to go through to get onto the shelf means that it’s been very denatured. So any vitamins, minerals and nutrients, and certainly antioxidants, are probably not even there anymore by the time you end up eating it.

So, what’s the point of eating food, if it’s not actually giving your nutrition we eat for nutrition for nutrients, so you need to make your own to make sure you’re getting the nutrients in that’s enough reasons to start making your own soup and lastly, of course, is A taste amazing, so full flavor, you can add flavors to it. Okay, enough talking make your own okay excellent. Thank you! Sayonara, most of best soup ever yeah.

I think everyone’s going to want to try this come along. We’ve got some more balls back their legs. Oh around 70, a kilo. So if we’re using a hundred grams there’s a lot that normally picking back, I sell these little better. Oh yeah there were people of messenger Larry hands for, like twenty bucks, yeah grams of nuts father kept protein at all protein. Oh no! You want it now teaspoons, but hey. Thank you very yeah.

Oh you got Big Springs. No, I think, there’s no squeeze an asset makes it go long. Hmm, it’s not half an eater, you just hot water, right, hmm, hot soup! That’s man feels so light. It’s like eating light. Hmm, you are eating, like hmm, transform line, hmm lightly, sound mmm, but boiling water. You could you like to see popping on you, don’t have to use boiling water and the kettle has an anomaly. Point2 water does at 70 Celsius.

It doesn’t like going about 70 because that’s where the molecule stop being deranged, when your kettle will go to around it’ll, take most of the Sun would be around 78 I’ll quickly go to 70 and will stay there for about half the time. It’s boiling then, at the very end, for the last say ten seconds: they’ll shoot up 200. So you can stop it’s a 20 seconds before boils and it’ll be a 79 and 100 and your water wouldn’t have deranged and it’s not spoiling.

But my and that’ll burn your mouth 55 will, if you want it really 55 will burn your mouth and it changed their effect or anything. Well. How about people use it for killing germs and such what is it Jim? It’s just bacteria yeah heaviest organ in our body is bacteria right in kilogram of flora, more cells, more from nor organisms back to olin, isms and cells in our body, Oh seriously, something whose body is it it’s more than than they are of us, but I’m certainly There we asked who I’m that which is conscious or Burton someone’s overrun with them parasites and Candida, yeast and mold, which are also just bacteria, which most people are that stuff likes a certain brand of food as its energy, refined, carbs, refined, sugars and processed meat or Meat, so you think about consciousness of all those millions and millions of organisms and your consciousness from your cells, which is fast mall in proportion wise and how many units they are like people think well yeah.

I very well about eating this junk you’re right. It’s the yeast model, fungus, bacteria and parasites that are influencing consciousness to equal Bayless energy like even then. This morning I was hungry after I got super foods coming, I must have eat crap and I bought jungle. Oats pause – I was like sorry juggalos, but like it’s not very healthy, is it is sugar and stuff we’re turning um and, like other when I’ll come home.

There’s like a banana bread like there’s a mango there and there’s banana bread, and I’m like, I know which one’s good for me, but I got ta eat it. I’r feeding the because you who am I feeding bacteria Candida fungus, molds yeast. We have a visitor and because silos hello, I mean the corporation yeah, so she’ll check this outside god. That’s expect the nearest exit. Maybe I’m scared, maybe I’m scared, maybe I’m maybe I’m maybe I’m free and alone.

I maybe I’m scared me happy dreaming of a broken heart since the day we made happened, dreaming of a broken heart and I can’t forehead

Plant-based Vegan Pantry Tour | Vitamins, Supplements, Superfoods, Grains, Beans & More!

So I recently did a vegan fridge tour and I had asked you guys if you’d be also interested in seeing what is in our pantry and there was a resounding yes. So today that’s what we’re going to do and while we don’t exactly have a pantry per se, I’m going to show you where we keep all of our bulk dragons, alright guys. So here it is in all its glory.

So we’re going to start down on the bottom drawer and work our way up. So this bottom drawer is where we keep all of our supplements and our superfoods, so any type of powder or supercede we might add, into a smoothie or nice cream and then daily supplements that we use to fill in any gaps nutritionally and for max as well. So these are the supplements that we grab and use daily. This is a vitamin d3 from Mary Ruth’s that we give to max just three sprays of that this b12 we take daily and give him just a teeny, tiny drop, and we take that every day as well, and then this is the new vitamin.

D3, we’ve been trying just to kind of change it up and it’s also summertime. So we don’t have to use a whole lot of it, but we’re really liking that right now and then these are dusty and eyes. Multivitamins, I’m still breastfeeding at 18 months. Max is a year and a half old, so I’m still taking just one of these prenatal prenatal multis every day I love, love it and dusty has immense multi. Some of our favorites here dusty, loves ashwagandha.

This is an adaptogen that he adds into his protein shakes. We’ve got some dried dragon fruit powder that makes your smoothie bold extremely pretty in pink. If he wants something, that’s going to go a little bit further than that frozen variety, a cow powder: this is a favorite of ours, we’ll add that to make chocolate, nice cream, coconut flakes to top our smoothie bowls with or to bake with turmeric.

This is one of the best anti-inflammatory powders to add to your smoothies. You can also make turmeric lattes with it blueberry powder, extremely extremely high in antioxidants matcha. So I have this organic green tea matcha powder that I sometimes like to drink. If I want a little jolt of energy, I’m not a coffee drinker, neither is dusty, he doesn’t do any caffeine, chia seeds, so this is probably the most used bag in this whole pantry.

So that’s why we have a giant bag of it. We always add this to smoothies we make chia pudding, we’re always grinding it and sprinkling it on Max’s meals, maca powder. So this is something we phase in and out of our smoothies. This one is a great adaptogen for hormonal balance, as well as energy, and sleep really love this taste and smell of it as well, particularly this kiva brand. We’ve got it on our amazon store, camu, camu, extremely high in vitamin c yeah, seven hundred and sixty percent vitamin C in just one teaspoon.

So if you’re feeling like you need a little boost during cold and flu season, that’s a great one. Acai, everybody knows acai powder. This is one of the highest sources of antioxidants. Of any berry on the planet also has healthy, Omega threes in it, which is kind of interesting, vanilla bean powder. So this is typically what I use to bake with or blend with in place of, vanilla extract, they’ve a lot more whole in pure, it’s just straight from the vanilla bean, and this would be our other most used other than the chia seeds is daily green boost.

I put a tablespoon of that in our smoothies every morning and it has a ridiculous amount of vitamins and minerals, especially folate vitamin K, four hundred and ten percent. It’s got lots of iron, manganese and all kinds of other good stuff, so super high in minerals, very alkalizing and anti-inflammatory. So, if you’re interested in trying out daily green boost, which is just a barley, grass juice powder, you can use eat, move rest and get a discount and for everything else, honestly, we buy mostly on Amazon, Prime, so we’ll have it linked below.

In the description on our amazon store moving on to the second drawer, this is the bulk of our pantry pun intended. So this is where we keep all of our bulk purchases. Keep in these mason jars, because it’s just a lot easier and cleaner for us. That being said, with Kovan 19, the bulk bins have been wiped clean. I think they’re trying to prevent the spread of germs. So it’s been really difficult to find bulk things, so we’ve had to buy more plastics and again, like I said in the refrigerator tour, we have a lot of plastics but we’re doing our best.

We use our reusable bags, whatever we’re able to, but things are a little bit bumpy right now so go easy on us, so you can see that I got to use my handy dandy label maker here, though I’ll walk you through some of our top used grains And legumes and beans over here on the far side, we have split red lentils, so these are definitely our most used. They’re super high in protein and super high in iron, they’re, really great for thickening up curries and soups and stews quinoa is actually not a grain.

It’s a seed and it is a complete protein. We use that one, a ton, it’s very versatile brown rice, use that a lot as well steel cut oats. I love to use to grind up into flour for baking these are not white rice. This is green lentils. Those are great for making like a mock meat kind of like taco meat dish or a lentil Bolognese we’ve got oat groats. These are one step above steel cut oats. So again, usually all I use those for is blending into flour.

I’ve got red kidney beans. Those are great for chilies, more lentils, more lentils, and these usually, I have garbanzo beans dried in here, but right now I actually have buckwheat. This is another seed that is a complete protein like quinoa and usually what I like to do is soak and sprout it and then I’ll dehydrate it. So it’s kind of like a crispy crunchy smoothie ball topper. It’s really really good.

Here. We’ve got our canned beans. This is kind of just as a backup for those lazy days when cooking from dry isn’t really an option. So we’ve got black beans, cannellini beans, canned pumpkin – I like to make things for max with that and bake with it. We’ve got coconut cream, so fun fact. Instead of buying light, coconut milk or even just regular, coconut milk, buy coconut cream and dilute it with water yourself, it’s the same exact thing: this is just more bang for your buck.

We’ve got this red curry paste. This is something we always put in, like our red lentil, sweet, potato, veggie stews, it’s kind of like a Thai and or Indian flavor strained Tomatoes. So we even buy this in a glass bottle instead of a jar. This is what we use to make everything from pizza, sauce to pasta, sauce to thickening up our stews you’ll, also see it sometimes in different varieties labeled as tomato puree.

So the reason we like this is because it has one ingredient, organic strained, Tomatoes. A lot of canned and jarred sauces are going to be high in sugar and salt and fat, so instead we just use this and we just season it ourselves. It got a couple of dried bean medleys from Bob’s Red Mill over here that we honestly like never use but they’re great in the winter time amaranth. So this is yet another complete protein.

It’s a seed even smaller than quinoa, and this one is by far the highest and iron. So this is what we’ve been enjoying making for max in a lot of his little recipes to get extra iron in his diet, and then we also found an Emirates flour. So this has been great to add into waffle and pancake recipes, even putting a tablespoon into a shake for extra protein and iron in the far back here. This is the fun stuff, so saltines are basically a firmer feeling under the weather.

There are days where I’ve been sick and all I could stomach was crackers, and then we’ve got some different pastas. Our favorite is Bond’s up. This is all chickpea, pasta and again super high in protein and iron max loves them and they just came out with a plant-based mac and cheese. It is awesome, you guys so check it out and a gluten free brown rice, pasta. We do try to stay gluten. Free as much as possible, personal favorite is this millet and brown rice ramen.

So it’s not flavored or anything. You add your own seasoning, but it is so good and then in the back. We have these for homemade sushi over here on the door every once in a while I’ll find a really cool kind of like infographic thing to print out, and this one is the PB 3 plate from plant-based juniors. So plant-based, juniors and nutritious Vita are my go-to resources for evidence-based toddler and infant nutrition.

So these are just helpful reminders for us as we’re preparing Max’s daily meals, to make sure that we’re meeting his vegan plant powered nutritional needs your drawer up. So this is Dusty’s. Favorite this is our nuts nut, butters and kind of our snack drawer. So we have a lot of dried fruits on this shelf again, a lot of these things go on top of smoothie bowls or we’re just grabbing and munching after meals and they’re all super nutritious.

So this is considered nature’s candy front and center is my personal favorite. We’ve got medjool dates. They are super juicy and delicious right now, so I love to just pick these and pop them in the freezer. For some reason they taste so much better. That way – and I also bake with them so I’ll puree them into date – paste right behind there is dusty and ice other favorite snacks. So these are the broken s.

We’ve got the trail mix, which is so good because it has the sweet crunchy fruit in with the nut, and it’s like a hard crunchy shell, but they’re so good. You’ve just got to trust me on that and then just the plain bucha is really amazing, as well Dusty’s go-to, after-dinner snack is these dark chocolate chips over here we’ve got some unsweetened and no-salt-added almond butter. So, just one ingredient: that’s what you always want to look for with your nut and seed butters, no added oil, salt or sugar.

We’ve got peanut butter, our new favorite and Max’s favorite. Is this raw cashew butter? It’s the highest source of iron of any of these nut butters, so organic coconut butter. This is what we recommend using to flavor up your soups and stews instead of coconut oil for extra fat. If that’s what you’re wanting, because this is just 100 % whole coconut, so it doesn’t have the fat extract it. It’s the whole coconut and it’s got a little bit of a sweet taste and really like to add that to bulk up Max’s recipes right up front.

Probably our most used nut is cashews just simply because they’ll have to soak them and blend them into like a cashew cream or cashew cheese sauce behind that we have rolled oats. So this is something I use again for baked goods. I make a ton of oat flour, that’s basically my go-to for all my baked goods. We also make oatmeal pretty much every other day, dusty and Max both enjoy it so funny story.

I ordered some holy basil on Amazon because, after our Costa Rica retreat, we learned so much about holy basil being like the top of the top as far as adaptogenic superfoods. It’s just great for everything it heals everything literally, so I went on Amazon and ordered some holy basil tea and it showed up in a two pound bag. So we’ve been keeping it in this giant jar we’ve also got almonds and all kinds of seeds.

We’ve got sunflower seeds, pecans pistachios walnuts and even some organic Nebraska grown popcorn. Some of both of our favorite smoothie Bowl toppers are cacao nibs. These are fantastic, so high in antioxidants, white, mulberries and goji. Berries are Dusty’s favorite, typically, dried fruit is also going to be really high in iron. I know I’m talking a lot about iron, but it’s a nutrient of extreme importance when you have infants and toddlers running around.

So we’ve been really focusing on that, and these are my new favorite go-to crunchy munchy for the top of my smoothie bowls they’re, just freeze-dried organic strawberries, they’re, it’s so so good. Last but not least, top shelf is pretty much devoted to all kinds of baking, flours and powders and potions, but over here on the far side is one of our favorite snack crackers Mary’s gone crackers. These are organic.

They are full of just a whole bunch of different seeds, they’re even oil-free, and Max loves them too. We are oil free, but we keep olive oil on hand just to again add extra calories. Healthy fats to Max’s meals is totally fine for toddlers and babies to consume a little bit of oil, and then we’ve got some brewers yeast. So this is something that I’ve experimented with with baking and even blending into smoothies.

It’s supposed to be a galactic OGG. In other words, it’s supposed to help increase your milk supply, so if you’re breastfeeding, you might want to look into Brewers ease so other than b12 and d3. Another nutrient of concern, especially for vegans and vegetarians, is iodine. So we get our iodine from sea vegetables. This is the kind you want to go for is USDA Organic, that’s from the Maine coast, so this is dulse flakes, but it looks like fish food to be honest, but you can sprinkle it on salads.

You can even put it in soups, and this kelp is actually in, like extremely large seaweed pieces. It’s super salty. So if you have a salt craving, it’s good to munch on this best way to make sure that you don’t overdose on iodine would be to actually drop some of this into a boiling water of soup. Last thing over here in the corner is our go-to cereal. So this is by Nature’s Path: organic. It’s called Mesa sunrise.

This is completely gluten. Free, USDA, Organic and honestly dusty has a bowl of this. Almost every night, late night before bed, it’s hilarious and Max has kind of entered the picky toddler stage. So if there’s ever a time where he won’t eat his food and I’m starting to get nervous like hey, you need to eat buddy, then I usually can get his appetite revved up. If I give him some of this cereal and back here, I’m not going to go into too much detail because I rarely use this.

But we’ve got some different, balsamic vinegars and flavorings like that, and then some baking soda cornstarch and different flours, coconut flour, brown, rice, flour, arrowroot powder, buckwheat, flour and coconut sugar, which we very rarely use and that pretty much sums it up so right now, I’m actually Soaking some dry chickpeas that we’re going to pop in our instant pot and use some way shape or form for dinner.

Most likely we’ll make some chickpea patties so over here in this corner of the kitchen, is where we keep more dry goods. This is pretty much just protein powders, you guys know some warrior is our go-to. If you guys haven’t already, we definitely highly recommend checking out the warrior blend, so we love the natural vanilla and the chocolate and they’re super super high in iron again, and you get 20 % off.

We will link it below use our discount code, eat move rest and give it a go. Then down here is the mother lode. So this is where we keep our potatoes and our sweet, potatoes, onions and garlic. We bought some of these tin cans and it works out great for keeping all of these puppies in place. My personal favorite, this red-colored, it’s kind of a reddish sweet potato. It’s called a Japanese yam, it’s white inside and they taste like birthday cake, no joke.

Last but not least, this is our spice cupboard and I would say this is where the goldmine is, if you’re looking to transition to a plant-based or vegan diet, the best way to enjoy your meals is to flavor them. So, of course, salt and pepper is always good, but there are so many other options out there. If you kind of get into ethnic cuisine, like we love to make a lot of Thai foods and Indian foods, you really have to build up your spice cabinet.

Some of our favorites are curry powder and garlic powder Cayenne cumin and for something sweeter and really like to use pumpkin pie, spice and cinnamon. So because we buy in bulk and we don’t have a whole lot of space in our kitchen. We do store excess and extra down in the basement, especially with quarantine, we’re trying to make as few trips as possible to the grocery stores. So we do have a lot of overflow down in the basement.

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,

Mexican Bean Salad Sweetened With Date Paste | Rockin Robin Cooks

This is a no cooking type of recipe, we’re going to be using canned beans and we’re going to be cutting up some fresh vegetables to put into it. And I tell you: this is the first article that I’ve shot since going into a shelter-in-place, and so we’re going to be using things that we already have using a produce and things that I have. We really shouldn’t be out there shopping in crowds and stuff.

So hopefully you won’t either use what you have improvise when you need to okay, I’m rockin Robin and I’m going to show you how to make this delicious bean salad right after this before we get into our recipe, go ahead and hit that subscribe button and a Notification bell so you’ll be notified every week when my new articles come out. I don’t want you to miss them because we’re always cooking up something delicious and healthy.

Alright, let’s go over the ingredients. First, up we’re going to use a couple of cans of beans, raising canned beans because well it’s just easier right and during this pandemic – and we want to make this easy and I’m sure, you’ve probably got some beans in your cupboard. So I’m using kidney beans and white beans and I’ve drained them and I’ve rinsed them all so neat, I’m going to use some corn I’m using some organic corn.

Here now I’ve chopped up a few vegetables. We’ve got some chopped up tomato. That’s just what I happened to have and then I did the superfine dice here on some red onion, some celery and some red bell, pepper, and I also have some pumpkin seeds that we’re going to add to this for a nice little crunch. Now for our dressing ingredients, this is the important part we have some balsamic, vinegar, apple, cider, vinegar, olive oil, I’m using some fresh herbs that I happen to still have in my fridge, which are some parsley and some organic fresh basil.

I love to add basil to my recipes. It’s just a wonderful herb to use now. I’ve also got some fresh lemon juice, lime juice, some salt, garlic powder. In this container I have some ground cumin, some ground coriander and some chili powder. Now, for my sweetener, you we have to balance out all this acid, so we have to add some sort of sweetener. Now I don’t like to use regular sugar, so I like to use if some of you’ve been reading.

My articles, you know I like date, paste. It’s a wonderful sweetener, lots of vitamins and minerals and fiber. It’s just a it’s a good way to go it’s low on the glycemic index, so it works and it’s easy to make, and I have a article for you if you want to learn how to make it. But I can tell you it’s very simple and very quick boil up some dates that are pitted in just some water and then you just simmer it for 20 minutes pop it in the blender.

Add a little of that liquid back until you make a nice paste like what we have here and you’ve got a great sweetener, that’ll store in the fridge for about a week. If you don’t have date paste or you want to use something else, you can try. My next choice would be maple syrup that works really well too, but in the end, use what you have so that you can try out this delicious salad. So we’re going to start off by making our dressing we’re going to take some olive oil and we’re going to place it into a bowl now with this recipe.

Ideally, what we want to do is make the dressing and then marinate just the beans in it overnight. That would be the the best way to do this recipe, because what happens is the flavors meld into the beans and it just gets really good. Some recipes are like that: they’re always better the next day, but if we put all the vegetables in then they tend to get a little bit on the more soft side and that might not you know you may not like that.

So if you can do it go ahead and marinate the beans overnight, if you can only do it for an hour, that’s okay, too. It all works. So here we go with our apple cider vinegar. Now our balsamic we’re just going to add a little bit of balsamic to this next we’re going to add our salt to this sprinkle that in and you can always adjust these seasonings. If you like garlic powder, those spices that I showed you ground, cumin, coriander and chili powder start stirring it a little bit now add the lemon juice and the lime juice, and now, for our sweetener.

I’m only going to add part of this. I have three about three tablespoons worth and I don’t know if I want to use it all until I taste it so we’re going to put some of that in there now and then we’re going to chop up with some of our fresh herbs that parsley in The basil toss that in and we’ll just give that a whisk I’m going to give that a taste and see if we need to adjust into the seasonings I’m going to go with a little more salt and I’m going to add a little bit more chili powder.

Let me give it a little splash for just a little bit of heat, just a hint and I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to place this into our beans and then we’re just going to let that sit for a little bit and then we’ll add The rest of our stuff, all right. Let’s pour that dressing right in there and get everything in there and we’re going to let that marinate for about a half an hour. At least I’m going to give this a toss and we’ll come back in a bit and add all the rest of the ingredients.

It’s been about a half an hour, I’m going to add the rest of my ingredients to this. So we’ll start with the celery toss that in I like to use that superfine dice, because everything mixes in so nicely and you don’t get big chunks of it and I just think it tastes better and I’m going to do some onions. I don’t know if I’m going to do all of this, but we’re going to do a good portion of it now, keep in mind when you refrigerate this, let’s say you’re going to serve it the next day, for example, you want to take this out of the Refrigerator about it half an hour to an hour before you’re actually going to have people eat it right, because when you use olive oil and you refrigerate it, it tends to get hard and get kind of gel like so you want to let that thaw out a Little bit and come up to room temperature, here’s our bell, peppers, nice, all those in there right now.

Let’s add some yellow, I’m going to add some of this corn, I’m probably not going to add it all and we’ve got our Tomatoes toss. Those in last thing. We have are some pumpkin seeds, which just add a little crunch. You can use any nuts that you like, and here you go guys. This is the finished product all right, I’m going to serve just a little bit up here, so I can take a taste very delicious guys, nice and refreshing.

We’ve got the crunch of the fresh bell peppers and the celery, the onions, all those flavors coming together. Very fresh tasting and very it has just the right amount of balance. I think between citrus – and you know the acidic part and the sweet part. I think it’s delicious so hope you guys give this a try all right. That’s our recipe for today. I hope you enjoyed it. Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog and leave me a comment and be well out.

There take care and we’ll see you next time.

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.

How can you want remain happy? Ultimately, happiness comes from a sense of joy, purpose and satisfaction right.

So some of the happiest places in the world, like Costa Rica, Singapore and Denmark are living. These measurably happy lives based on a set of factors and principles that they incorporate into their daily lives. We’re going to be sharing those with you today, so hopefully you can take some of what they’ve done to become happier and incorporate it into your own life right. 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 naturally we would start with eat move rest because that’s kind of what we’re all about here, but because we’ve got a stress, busting smoothie recipe, for you guys we’re going to save that until the end, so stay tuned, tip number one invest in your hobbies and New experiences, it can be really easy to get caught up in the day-to-day work grind, and it is no bueno. 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.

So here we sit in our backyard on our patio on the most perfect of gloomy days. It’s chilly right now and what better day to film a article for you guys about how to be happy, how to be happy in spite of your situation when the Sun isn’t shining outside or even within? How can you want remain happy? Ultimately, happiness comes from a sense of joy, purpose and satisfaction right.

So some of the happiest places in the world, like Costa Rica, Singapore and Denmark are living. These measurably happy lives based on a set of factors and principles that they incorporate into their daily lives. We’re going to be sharing those with you today, so hopefully you can take some of what they’ve done to become happier and incorporate it into your own life right. 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 naturally we would start with eat move rest because that’s kind of what we’re all about here, but because we’ve got a stress, busting smoothie recipe, for you guys we’re going to save that until the end, so stay tuned, tip number one invest in your hobbies and New experiences, it can be really easy to get caught up in the day-to-day work grind, and it is no bueno. 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.

Want to shield your gut from lectin damage? Eat this, not that

They always say the same thing. Why can’t I eat my favorite food, some of the most common ones, peanut, butter, diet, soda rice and pasta, yogurt and beans. If you’re a fan of any of these, I’ve got some good news, they’re easy to swap out, and I’ve got some substitutions, they’re, absolutely delicious. First peanut butter, you may as well call it lectin butter because it’s made with one of the worst ingredients for your health, but these days there are plenty of healthy lectin, free alternatives on grocery store shelves.

Things like almond butter, walnut butter, hazelnut butter tahini, which is basically sesame seed butter and my favorite pistachio butter just make sure to avoid cashew or sunflower seed butter they’re, both pretty common, and if you want almond or walnut butter to taste a little peanut ear. I’ve got a trick whisk in a couple of drops of coconut aminos to boost the savory flavor. Now, let’s talk about diet soda at first.

This was a hard one for me, I was a huge diet. Coke addict! Now, I’m not going to tell you how terrible diet soda is for your health at this point you better already know, but if you want a refresher, there are a couple of good articles right here on my youtube blog, maybe you saw the one where I share. My favorite soda hack, my balsamic, vinegar, soda just in case I put a link to it on the description below it’s a great alternative, but it’s not the only one, if you’re dying for something fruity make an infused water or an infused sparkling water.

If you find yourself craving bubbles, I use lemon and orange slices and even some fresh berries and for a really special treat. You can look for sodas that are sweetened only with stevia. Now they shouldn’t be an everyday thing, but if you’ve got a craving, you just can’t be and you’ve tried everything else. It might help. Next up rice and pasta, good news, carb lovers: there are about a million substitutes for both rice and pasta, and some of the swaps are more flavorful than the originals.

I love Capello’s pasta made from almond flour and tapioca flour. You can find it in the gluten free frozen food, section of Whole Foods and other stores. Now you already know about one of my other favorites miracle noodles and good news. They make miracle rice too, and if you’re looking for ways to use them check out the recipes section and the plant paradox or the recipe articles here on my YouTube page, of course, not everyone loves miracle noodles as much as I do, but they’re not your only Option you can use millet or sorghum in place of rice or even cauliflower rice, which is hugely popular right now.

You can find it fresh or frozen in most major supermarkets even Costco, and you can also make noodles out of any vegetables by spiralizing them or cutting them in into thin strips, maybe you’ve heard of zucchini noodles, but of course they don’t fit in the plant. Paradox plan still the same idea works with beets, carrots, sweet potatoes, even daikon radish, and you can even find some noodle produce at health food stores.

These days, here’s some beet noodles. These are actually fantastic. Fourth yogurt, even Greek yogurt is off the plan. That’s because the cow’s milk yogurt sold in this country has casein a1 a protein that seriously damages your gut and for a lot of people. That’s a problem because it’s their go-to healthy breakfast item. If you’re one of those people who needs to have a yogurt for breakfast, what can you do? Go to the regular old yogurt section in your grocery store and look for goat’s milk, yogurt or sheep’s milk yogurt or, if you’re, in the mood for a vegan option? Almond or coconut yogurt they’re pretty widely available we’re just like regular yogurt and are delicious too okay.

Finally beans. I know we’ve discussed this one before, but it’s worth a reminder, especially for you vegetarians and vegans, who are used to getting your protein from beans. Beans are left and heavy, but it’s possible to reduce the lectins by pressure cooking. So if you’ve got a pressure cooker put it to use, if not look for Eden brand canned beans, they come in non BPA line, cans and they’re pressure-cooked ahead of time and if you’re, looking for a completely non bean alternative, look no further than pine nuts.

If you soak them in liquid, like water or even chicken stock, they get a texture similar to beans. In fact, pine nuts cooked into a traditional chili have almost the exact same texture as beans, and there you have it. Five of my favorite plant paradox friendly substitutions, but I want to know what you’re struggling with so do me a favor and leave a comment below and let me know if you’re having trouble finding a swap out for your favorite food, it could make it into my Next article, I’m dr.

HOW TO MAKE THE BEST ICED COFFEE EVER! QUICK, EASY & VEGAN RECIPE♡

I just said y’all, so if you aren’t already subscribed to my blog, please do click the subscribe button to join my lovely family. I love you all so so much I upload every Wednesday and every Sunday.

Please do click the Bell button, because if you don’t YouTube’s been playing up, you know you maybe miss out one of my articles so it’ll be really really nice if you could click the Buy button we’ve all that said, let’s get on into the article today, I’m Going to be showing you how to make an iced latte and not only an iced latte but the best, and also the easiest one ever like it’s so simple, quick and easy.

I didn’t used to like coffee and I’m hooked now, like I love it. So much so, if you don’t like coffee, try this out, you will probably like it so just stay tuned. If you want to know how to make the best iced latte over. So the first thing you’re going to need is some coffee and a mason jar with just a plastic straw. I use reusable straws just because it’s so much better for the environment, so you’re just going to want to take two teaspoons of instant coffee and put them in your mason jar.

You can add more or less, depending on how strong you want it once you’ve done, that you’re going to want to add either some syrup or if you want to be healthier, I’m honey, but I don’t really care. So I’m just going to add some honey and I normally add about a teaspoon or a dessert spoon. I think this might be called about that amount. My cat is really curious. My cat is a little bit too curious, but once you’ve added your syrup or honey you’re going to add the boiled water.

So I just add a few centimeters to the bottom read out about that. Much isn’t she the cutest little cat, she’s pregnant, so she’s really fat. So all you’re going to do now is mix all of that together and obviously, if you want your iced coffee to be a bit more sweet, just add some more syrup or honey. So now we’re just going to pop this in the freezer for about 10 to 20 minutes. The reason why I put it in the freezer is just because I want to make it cooled down faster once your coffee’s been in the freezer for about 15 minutes.

You just get a little bit of ice in a cup, so after I’ve added ice about halfway, maybe a little bit less. I will add some oat milk. If you did enjoy this article, please do give it a thumbs up.
