Wish I Was {Ojai Bliss}

0comments

I am currently dreaming of spending a sun filled weekend in dreamy Ojai. Visiting the famers markets, spending time outdoors and getting pampered. Sipping tangerine fizz cocktails and soaking it in. Sounds dreamy don’t you think?

 


Creamy Vegan Mac & Cheese

0comments

We try and limit our dairy intake at home since my oldest daughter has a dairy sensitivity. But the thing is she LOVES cheese, especially mac and cheese. I mean what kid doesn’t? I don’t mean the gross orange kind in a box but the kind with tons of real cheese and milk. So I had to come up with another way to get that creamy, cheesy feel without the dairy. This butternut squash creamy mac and cheese is so amazing, the entire family LOVED it which is a huge win. The butternut squash gives it that fun orange color, and the cashew cream gives it a silky creamy feel, with the nutritional yeast adding a bit of cheesiness. Give it a try friends! It’s super easy, and super yummy!

Thrive Market Top Picks

0comments

Sorry I know I have been away for a while. I took a week off to get away with the hubby and we are also in the middle of revamping the website. I cannot wait to show you everything we have been working on. But until then I thought I would share with you one of my latest obsessions, Thrive Market. I love getting all my healthy pantry items delivered to my door, and they always have fun promos going on so I get to try new items all the time. It can be a little overwhelming at first so here are some of my top picks to get you started.

I have been making a morning smoothie or potion as I like to refer to it, for the past 3 months as my breakfast. It’s become somewhat of a ritual mixing all my powders and butters together. Sometimes I have my coffee as my potion as well, and when I do that I add this Vanilla Ghee. It’s seriously so heavenly you could really just eat it by the spoonful. It’s great in baked goods too!

Maca Powder is one of my favorites. I love the caramel flavor it has naturally, and it’s great to add to my morning potions or smoothies as it’s a great natural energy booster.

Ashwaganda is one of those buzz words recently. It’s such a powerful thing to add to your foods with not only immune boosting properties but it helps with physical and emotional stress.

Bone Broth is such an amazing thing to have around the house especially during cold and flu season. When anyone in my house starts to show the first signs of getting sick I gently heat up a bit of this bone broth and it’s not only soothing but a great way to kick that cold!

Avocado oil is a great neutral tasting oil and I have been using it more and more to cook with. This one is a great value and it has super cute packaging which I am always a sucker for.

Coconut Aminos adds such great flavor to my asian inspired dishes and sauces. So yummy and the kids love it!

Maca Maple Cashews make the perfect snack on the go, and you can feel good about what you are eating as they are covered in maca powder. Yum!

Both my kids love these Seaweed Snacks and they are so easy to have on the go. I buy them in bulk to save money.

I love finishing my dishes with these Sea Salt Flakes. So yummy!

This All-purpose cleaner is super cheap, works super well and is non-toxic. What’s not to love?

Since we started making our own cashew milk, buying good quality, inexpensive and organic cashews has become a must. These go in every order.

Mom Monday {Kitchen Hacks}

0comments

As parents, we are always looking for the quick way to get things done, the simplest. I thought I would start sharing some of my kitchen hacks that I use regularly to get things done quick without compromising on health and nutrition. This is one I just recently started doing and it’s a total game changer. We get a CSA basket every 2 weeks and we always end up with an excess of greens. I typically throw away the beet greens, because I know I just won’t get to using them. Well the beet greens a few weeks ago were so pretty I couldn’t bear to throw away so I threw them in the vitamix with some water, froze them and voila, instant smoothie cubes. They are so easy to add to our morning smoothies, without having to worry about washing and trimming the greens on top of everything else that has to get done in the morning. The perfect short cut. I also have kale and swiss chard cubes now in the freezer. So great!

Oh how dreamy this spot looks, in Dunton Hot Springs. I stumbled upon the most perfect adventure documented by Captain and the Gypsy King and my Wish I Was post was born. Sipping an adaptogenic hot cocoa wearing some killer clothes would really complete the experience dont you think?

 


Baby Registry with Baby Cubby

0comments

There are constantly new fun baby products coming out that sometimes when registering or looking for a gift for a baby shower, it can be super overwhelming. Having a 16 month old I  found myself thrust back into the baby world and made so many new discoveries. With that in mind I created the ultimate baby shower gift guide for you together with Baby Cubby. They have all of my most favorite baby items, so I put them together for you here in a handy guide. Most of these are products I use daily and are sure to be the perfect gifts. From the ONLY bottle my baby would accept, to the absolutely softest jammies ever. The little ruffle on them makes them pjs AND an outfit, perfect for when you are on the go and want baby to nap or sleep. A pair of Freshly Picked moccasins are the best gift, and they turn into an heirloom which I love. Now the Dockatot is something I never got but oh how I obsessed over it. It’s the king of getting your baby to sleep, and I love the play yard attachment for play and sleep. Seriously this would be the ultimate gift. Don’t forget mama, an ultra soft cozy blanket and a fabulous necklace that baby can chew on when teething, are great gifts. I love my chewbead necklace. Happy shopping friends!

Mom Monday {kids party ideas}

0comments

Happy Mom Monday my friends! As I start my master plan for Piper’s 7th birthday…7!!! aaah!!, I thought I would share some of my favorite stealworthy ideas for your kids next party. The first one is actually from little Greyson’s first birthday party we had this past November. I created a Chewbead Necklace bar where guests could choose from a variety of different teething beads for their creations. This was such a huge hit, guests kept going back for more, creating bracelets, necklaces for themselves, key chains, it was so much fun!! I also LOVE this idea of a punch pinata. So adorable! Lawn games are always a fun addition to any party since everyone from the kids to the adults enjoy them. I love this milk and cookies themed board. I am a big fan of flower crowns, and fairy inspired crowns, so naturally this crown wall is a win win! I just love the simple but wow-factor idea of creating a balloon wall like this heart one.
