Quinoa Pasta

You may already know that I am a huge fan of quinoa well now I will also share that I love anything made with quinoa and pasta is no exception! Pasta is usually considered, a fatty, high carb dish but organic quinoa pasta is the complete opposite with a rich taste but much easier on your body!

This simple meal (can be made as a side dish or main dish) is ready in minutes and requires 6 ingredients that you probably always have in the kitchen.

 

 

 

  • Quinoa Pasta (purchase your favorite brand in any organic market)
  • Minced or chopped garlic (your preference)
  • Tomatoes chopped
  • Chopped basil
  • Olive oil
  • Celtic salt & fresh ground pepper to taste

Make the pasta as you normally would and then combine all ingredients on a skillet…simple, delicious, and your body will appreciate it 🙂

So go ahead, eat the pasta!

Breakfast Smoothie

Beauty means looking and feeling absolutely wonderful from the inside, out.

Obtaining this feeling is a life-long process but you can begin today with simple vitamins, good organic food, and of course a physical regime like the gym. Upon consultation with a holistic healer, I was recommended the probiotics and vitamins you see above. These have now become part of my daily routine. All the information you can want about these vitamins can be found on Physica Energetics and Pure Formulas.

This morning I used the vitamins in a fruit smoothie for breakfast. The drink contained organic blue agave honey, organic extra virgin coconut oil, frozen organic mangoes and strawberries and all the vitamins and probiotics.

Simple, delicious and keeps me going all day long!

Coconut Water

Image

Drinking coconut water for hydration and health is not a new practice, many have been doing it for a while as the trend to stay organic and healthy has risen over the years more and more. So many coconut waters just lack a certain something when it comes to taste until I tried the Harmless Harvest 100% Raw Coconut Water. It is the best tasting one on the market right now according to Thrillist, Savuer Magazine, and many others who have tried it and loved it.

This particular brand gets their coconuts from Thailand and they are hand picked while still young. Typically many coconut waters are made with heat but this company keeps their coconut water cold at all times by using High Pressure Processing so the water stays refrigerated and has a longer shelf life.

This particular brand is sweet, nutty, goes down really smooth, and leaves a very pleasant coconutty after taste. I drink the 16 oz. size and it keeps me hydrated all day long!

Benefits of coconut water from Life Hack:

  • Weight Loss
  • Glowing skin
  • Hangover remedy
  • Helps with digestion
  • Boosts hydration
  • Reduces high blood pressure
  • Loaded with nutrients
  • Compatible with human blood

It is sold in major organic health food markets such as Whole Foods, Wegmans, even on Amazon!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!

Kale Salad

Easy and healthy side dishes are my favorite and I wouldn’t make them without some favorite ingredients like kale, quinoa, and chia seeds!

This “salad” (I use quotes because it’s much more than JUST a salad) is so easy, it barely needs instructions but here are a few simple steps to making it perfect!

 

 

  • Cook your favorite type of organic quinoa as you normally would (two cups water for every one cup of quinoa. Spice or just add olive oil once the water starts to boil then lower to a simmer allowing all the water to absorb.)
  • Once quinoa is cooked, throw in green beans, chia seeds, and kale and cook till softened.
  • Use spices according your preference (I use Celtic salt and fresh ground pepper)

Enjoy and beautiful weekend everyone!

How Often You Should Wash Your Hair Depending on Your Hair Type

Beauty High

how often should you wash your hair

Washing our hair is one of those things we feel we’re never doing right. Some of us feel like we’re washing it way too much, while others feel like we’re not washing it enough. The answer to this dilemma is knowing your hair type. Different hair types require different kinds of care. So, if you’re stumped on how often to wash your hair, read on for quick tips for shampooing your locks.

For Fine Hair: Fine hair tends to absorb more oil than other hair types, which means you should be washing it more often. If possible. you can wash your hair every day, especially if you frequent the gym. Time may be an issue, though, so a quick spritz or two of dry shampoo is a great alternative, helping to absorb any excess oil in your hair.
