Y’all, this is my new favorite smoothie/juice. It is so refreshing, light, and simple - I love it!!! The crazy thing is, it doesn’t contain any fruit. So if you are prediabetic, have high blood sugar levels or insulin resistance, this smoothie is a great option for you.Read More
I have to admit I love Mexican food!!! Unfortunately, good Mexican food is hard to come by in Mississippi. I just have to be honest, y’all. Once a month, I try to get my taco fix at Food Truck Friday in Jackson, because those are the best tacos in the state in my opinion.
But I also cook plenty of dishes at home that are inspired by Mexican cuisine. I recently made this vegan taco filling. If you’re a true fan of Mexican food, you might be rolling your eyes right now, but I encourage you to give these a try. You won’t even know there is no meat in your taco.Read More
Sometimes I get tired of always having eggs for breakfast. I found that Chia Puddings are a great alternative. They are delicious and provide lots of health benefits. This one in particular packs a nutritious punch - Vitamin A, C and D, Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium and 12 g of protein. It makes a great snack too.Read More

I love salads that combine veggies with fruit. There is just something about a slightly sweet and salty combination that I really enjoy. Take this Blueberry Kale Salad for example. You have hearty and earthy beets and kale, together with sweet and tangy blueberries, and some pumpkin seeds for a crunchy kick. It is sugar-free and low glycemic. So if you are prediabetic or have problems with insulin resistance, give this salad a try!Read More

This one here only has 6 ingredients, but it’s delicious and creamy - just the way a smoothie should be.Read More
Sometimes I forget that not everybody knows how to make a smoothie and that I was also pretty apprehensive about trying it for the first time.
'How do you mean I can just blend up vegetables?' 'How much is a cup of spinach?' and 'What if I do something wrong?' were some of my questions.
Let me ask you something! Do you take care of your car? If you are like most people, you take GREAT care of your car. Why don't we take the same care with ourselves? Why do we keep eating and drinking the same foods that we know aren't good for us?Read More
Thanks to much of what we hear in the media, detoxing has earned a reputation for being unhealthy and even unsafe. When you hear the word “detox,” do you immediately think of all-liquid diets, expensive supplements and short-term deprivation for short-term gains? The truth is, a detox doesn’t have to involve any of the above—and if you detox in a healthy, supportive manner, you can achieve lasting results in weight loss, energy gain and full-body health.Read More
