Easy-As-Pie Sweet Potato-Nut Butter Rounds

Slice an already baked, firm (not mushy!) sweet potato into 1.5 inch rounds.

Place 2-3 rounds on a plate and wrap the rest up and refrigerate for the next snack.

Top each round with ½ tbsp almond or cashew butter and sprinkle with organic cinnamon. Eat them.

Fancy is as fancy does, my good friend Hannah used to say; this snack may not look like much but it tastes like DELICIOUS PIE IN YOUR MOUTH. And I assure you it is the easiest pie you’ll ever make.

Kombucha Jell-oh

This isn't as strange as it sounds. Recipes like this have been making the Paleo and GAPS diet rounds for years. While not as sweet (or technicolor) as the jello you grew up with, it boasts far more health benefits. Grass-fed gelatin helps strengthen connective tissue and contains amino acids that help heal the gut. Kombucha has some pretty interesting microorganisms that support healthy gut flora balance, and raw honey contains beneficial enzymes and strong antimicrobial compounds.

Ingredients

4 cups kombucha—low sugar or homemade variety

3 tbsp raw honey or 5 drops liquid Stevia (NuStevia Vanilla is best)

5 tbsp Great Lakes Grass-Fed Gelatin (red canister)

Instructions

In a bowl or mason jar, sweeten kombucha to taste with raw honey or stevia.

Place 2 cups of the kombucha in a pot on the stove.

Sprinkle gelatin evenly over the kombucha, and whisk in until smooth.

Turn on heat to low and heat until thickened. Unlike traditional jello, you don't want to heat this much! The kombucha should be *just* warm. Overheating destroys enzymes and beneficial microbes.

Remove from heat. Add the thickened kombucha to the remaining kombucha and stir well.

Pour into pan and chill until set (usually a few hours).

Cut into squares and enjoy!

Berries and Cream

This coconut cream is to die for. It tastes suspiciously, and wonderfully, like Cool Whip, but actually decomposes like normal food!

Ingredients

1 can full-fat coconut milk in BPA-free can

3 tsp non-GMO lecithin (this is a soy product, but contains only the phospholipids, not soy proteins) or 2 tsps grass-fed gelatin

1 tsp real vanilla extract

1-3 drops liquid stevia

Instructions

Place all ingredients in a Vitamix or blender and whip on high until the lecithin granules or gelatin are fully incorporated. Add more vanilla or stevia to taste. Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight before serving.

Spoon over 10 cherries or ½ c blueberries and enjoy!

Because we could all use a treat sometimes.

B complex

Love the b complex, couldn’t find it elsewhere easily

Yes, this dries up poison oak.

I tried it after the rash did not go away for 2 weeks. It rapidly retreated, and gone.

LOVE!

Tried the lavender moisture cream this morning and it went on so beautifully, easy and almost satin-like. My face feels so nourished, soft it feels so good. Best moisturizer I have applied in a very long time.

Astaxanthin

This is my first time trying this product, and because I am taking it for inflammatory joint pain, I have seen some definite alleviation of my discomfort since I started taking it over a week ago. I am also taking it with Tumeric and Resveratrol (all three formulas twice a day), so I am not sure weather my relief is totally due to the Astaxanthin or the combination of herbs. Still I will continue along this path, since it is very much helping my hips and lower back. I would recommend others give it a try and if needed add the two additional anti-inflammatory combinations. I find it a better alternative to NSAIDs and other meds that cause gastric issues.

NERVE BALM IS AWESOME!!

NERVE BALM IS THE BEST PRODUCT THAT I HAVE FOUND TO WORK ON MY NEUROPATHIC PAIN AND I AM GLAD MY CHIRPRACTOR INTRODUCED TO ME THIS PRODUCT. THANK YOU.
