What you put into your body is one of the most important things for your well-being. Here I will post recipes that keep me and my family healthy!
Take most or all of the meat off an organic roasted chicken you bake or rotisserie chicken preferably from Central Market or Whole Foods (I like these best because they are in a bag not plastic). Place bones in a crock pot. Cover bones completely with filtered water and add about 2 more inches of water. Add sea salt, pepper, 2 stalks of celery, a carrot (no need to peel), 1/2 an onion, a clove of garlic, and whatever spice you want—you can also add cilantro or parsley–and add 1 T of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar. Cook on low for 24 hours in a crock pot or 120 minutes in an Instapot. Strain. Use broth for a soup base or to drink. It will keep for 3-4 days. You can freeze it as well.
You can add sautéed vegetable such as: carrots, celery, squash, zuchini—and then add the baked chicken. Garnish w parsley or cilantro.
EPSOM SALT BATHS & MAGNESIUM SPRAY
Achey? Sore Muscles? Bloated? Trouble Sleeping?Headaches?Restless?Constipated?Feeling off? There is a very simple remedy to help with these issues! Epsom salts and/or Magnesium Spray! They are an amazing, simple, and inexpensive way to help with these issues. They contain the all powerful magnesium that is so utterly important for all of our bodies functions as well.
Depending on the size of your bath tub, you can use anywhere from 3-4 cups of epsom salts. You want the water to be comfortably very warm-hot. Not so hot where you would not want to relax for twenty minutes in it! You can add different essential oils-I prefer lavender at night for it’s natural calming properties.
You can also add 1/2 c. of aluminum free baking soda for a detox as well.
As far as the spray, feel free to reach out to me for my favorite brands..most suggest anywhere from 10-50 sprays a day. Start lower and increase your dose. Magnesium is a natural constipation reliever, so you don’t necessarily want to take so much that you are running to the restroom:)
Also keep in mind if you take a multivitamin or magnesium supplement that they all work together.
I recently had a tension headache for several days, and I used a combination of baths,spray and a magnesium supplement to get rid of it.
I hope this info helps you to be well! Xo
This is my go to smoothie:
If I’m trying to cut calories I will use 1/2 nut milk 1/2 water. Enjoy!
This a great recipe—I hope you like it as much as I do ! A higher quality blender is worth the cost to make greens completely smooth. Vitamix is my favorite!
