Essential Oils

The past few months I’ve been researching and trying out different essential oils.

  • @edynjacks 😍 I’m making coconut yogurt. ——-
2 cans coconut cream
2 can coconut milk
1 jar Cocoyo
—- Mix and put in a cool cabinet for 24 hours then refrigerate for 3 days. Then blend it up. You can add a sweetener at that point but I’m not going to. It last in the fridge for 8 months and when you get down to 2 tablespoons use that as your starter. 
So damn fluffy and delicious .

What a truly glorious day. .

  • What is your morning routine? I’m a creature of habit. No matter where I am in the world I keep up with my morning routine. 
I wake up between 4 and 4:30.

1. Water - every night before I go to bed I fill up a 24 ounce mason jar with lemon water and sit it on my nightstand.

2. Morning Prayer- Thank you, God for the life you have given me. 
3. Bathroom- brush teeth, wash face and all that good stuff. 
4. It’s Matcha time- I love my Matcha with lemon and tiny bit of stevia.

5. Look at my planner- see what my day looks like then add or remove things. 
6. Time with God- I’m working on reading the whole Bible in one year. I take lots of notes in the margin. At the end of the year I’ll talk more about this.

7. What’s for Dinner - I go through some of my favorite cookbooks and decide what’s for dinner. I honestly feel like with my #celiac #hashimotos and #lupus I have to pre-plan All my meals. I research restaurants and hotels long before I walk in their door.

8. Self Care - I meditate for 20-30 minutes every single morning. I love a “ So Hum “ mantra meditation. 
Eight easy things and I’m usually done by 5:30. I used to do my yoga in the morning but since I’m #intermittentfasting I’ve started doing my yoga around noon so I can have a pre-workout drink and then breakfast after my workout. 
Are you a creature of habit?

  • Today is national cheese day so I thought I would share some of our favorite plant based cheeses. 
Right now our new favorite is the @wholefoods plant-based mozzarella and cheddar for our tacos and tostados. Of course we are big fans of @miyokoscreamery cheese wheels. We have five in the fridge right now because Hubby makes a cheese and crackers tray for his Thursday night poker get together. @daiyafoods is our all time favorite for vegan Mac and cheese, nachos, twice baked potatoes. We really love @violife_foods when we make vegan enchiladas and my Grandmas lasagna. last but not least we love @parmaveganparm on our potatoes and pasta.

  • I don’t like to play golf, but he does.... so I love to go with him.
He doesn’t like eating gluten free, but I have to... so he’s given up gluten for me.
I don’t like skydiving, but he does...so I never miss his jumps so I can kiss him before and after. 
He doesn’t like going to the theater to watch chick flicks, but I love them... and he always goes with me to wipe my tears. 
That’s marriage...
That’s true love.......
