Can't stop thinking about this snack toast. I've cut dairy out of my diet completely but still ahve cravings every now & then for cheese. Thankfully, I stumbled upon TreeLine Cheese that is GF, dairy free & filled with probiotics. What a find!
POSITIVE VIBES ONLY...My experience with letting go of stress, unhealthy habits, relationships & judgement.
I truly believe the process of cleansing your body of toxins begins with your mindset so I thought I’d share my experience with positivity and how far that can take you in life.
Almond milk is my weakness. I go through around 3-4 cartons a week between my smoothie & baking obsessions. I FINALLY decided to give homemade milk a try & I CANNOT believe it took me this long. Look at this beautiful milk & the pulp it left behind <3 I also love the fact that you can flavor it however you feel. Of course cinnamon & cacao made the list.
These recipes would not have been successful without the amazing nut bag from Ellie's Best. Order your nut bag for a discount using the code "rvafit".
Here are some tips for using your nut bag:
-Your new nut milk bag will arrive inside out. We recommend using the bag this way, with the seams towards the outside, to prevent small particles from lodging in the seams making cleaning more work!
- Before first use, wash bag in warm water and unscented soap, then air dry.
-To help the bag keep its shape, you can take a wire hanger and form it to fit inside the bag so it stretches the bag out while it dries. This will prevent the bag from staying crinkled up from twisting and squeezing
Let's talk juice. I am hesitant to drink most juices because the high amounts of sugars and calories. Actually, the only juice I use in my diet is organic carrot juice with no additives. Well, things recently changed when I stumbled upon the best juice company out there, Salad Power.
Look at the facts on their products:
•50-115 calories in total
•4890% of Vitamin C
•222% of Vitamin A
Honestly, I am a big fan of this juice not only because of all the nutrients but also because it's SO EASY to take on the go or add into a smoothie. There are days where I'm so busy that I forget to have my daily intake of greens or veggies so Salad Power makes it simple yet delicious. Check out the smoothie I made below with the "Veggies" juice.
