Tipsy Tuesday: 10 Benefits of Lemons

Since my life revolves around lemons right now I might as well share some of the benefits of lemons with you. At the end I’ve included a link that I stumbled across for 31 ways to use a lemon peel. Happy reading! 1. They contain citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, pectin, and limonene–that promote immunity and fight infection. 2.

Simple Pleasure #22: Coconuts!!!

Pretty much anything coconut does me good… raw coconut, coconut water, oil, curry, ice-cream, macaroons, scrambled eggs… huh, wait? Scrambled eggs??? Yep… it’s a little trick of mine. I take coconut milk from the can and whip it into my eggs before I cook them. It makes them nice a fluffy and gives them a nice flavor as well. I think coconuts have gotten a bad rap… they are very nutritious. Maybe you already know how great they are……

Recipe: Gluten Free Pancake Avocado Sandwich

K, so I know what you’re probably thinking… “what in the world is that!” Don’t judge… it’s quite delicious. It’s the same as if you were to make it on an english muffin – only way better! Super easy too. I’ll share with you how I made this yummy masterpiece. I used “Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pancake Mix” and just followed the recipe on the back… but instead of oil I used an egg white and for the milk I used vanilla hemp milk (yum). I also added a little bit of honey. Cook yourself up the pancakes, make…

Simple Pleasure #10: Peace Pies

Doesn’t this look delicious…??? Guess what it is made of? All raw ingredients. Yep, nothing is cooked, it’s vegan, gluten free, soy free and amazingly yummy. It comes from a cute little place in Ocean Beach called Peace Pies and I happen to live right across the street. I’m completely addicted to their green smoothie – which I’m not quite sure what’s in it – but oh so yummy. They offer all sorts of raw juices including kombucha (simple pleasure #37) and hemp mylk. If you are feeling hungry you can grab a some Kale Chips or Crackas n’ Hummus…
