My family's health is one of my most important priorities. And if I’m being honest, the most direct way to positively impact my family’s health is through food.
If I continually allow my children to eat processed foods with harmful ingredients such as artificial flavorings, food dyes, and high fructose corn syrup, they will experience trouble with their health. On the other hand, if I intentionally provide my family with real food, that’s going to make their bodies happy, and I’ll know that I’ve done my best to take care of them.
My favorite drink at the local juice bar is called Roots Remedy. It’s a lovely juice made of beets, apple, lemon, and ginger. I enjoy the way that it’s both refreshing and warming at the same time. The bright pink color the juice takes on from the beets is sensationally satisfying. If I close my eyes now, I can just see myself: the sun shining, a nice walk along the river, with a beet juice in hand.

But if you're wanting to look leaner without spending hours in the gym lifting weights or doing cardio, start paying attention to what type of food you are putting into your mouth.
Muffins are one of those recipes that many people think is a healthy option, but more often than not, they are actually packed with empty calories. Most bakeries, cafes, and grocery stores use low quality all-purpose flour, unhealthy fats, and a day's worth of sugar. In today’s recipe, we are going to use only high quality ingredients to create a super moist muffin full of fiber and delicious citrus flavor perfect for the warm weather months ahead.
Rutabaga fries are my absolute favorite kind of fry! Not only are they GAPS Diet friendly, but rutabagas are high in vitamin C, zinc, potassium, and support digestive health as they are high in fiber and also stimulate bile production.

One month after eating vegan, I decided to go fully raw for enhanced benefits. My life began to change immediately. My sugar cravings went away, my brain fog dispersed, and I was able to think more clearly and rationalize, I began to reprioritize my entire life.
