An apple, a sweet potato, a carrot and some cashews enter a bar. Just kidding. They go to a mixer.
That was my husband’s joke. Irl, an apple, a sweet a carrot, handful of cashews and a healthy swig of homemade hemp milk get together in a blender to become the flipping most delicious, creamy, flavorful, refreshing unfussy soup that I didn’t know I needed.
This is not medical advice. I'm not telling you what to do. I'm telling you what I did to feel better when I woke up this morning with a sore throat. First of all, I haven't had a sore throat in over 8 years. Yesterday, on my way home from the station, I felt a little tickle happening in the throat region, that was unusual for me. I've had a few of what I call "crunchies" here and there over the years, but I'll throw whole food at it: green juice, ginger, herbal tea infusions, "mama juice", a whole garlic clove, honey, garlic honey, etc. Was it not, Hippocrates who said,
Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food.
"Meal prepping" is what all the fitness people on the socials do. They plan out recipes for the week and write out elaborate lists of ingredients. Then they go to the supermarket while their ingredients list is still fresh on their mind --and they go early-- before all the kale is picked over-- and they purchase all of their already planned menu ingredients with a smile and some zeal.
This is a zero-fuss kind of cake. It's also not made with any dairy, eggs or white sugar (the frosting has some powdered sugar but oh, well). Everything you see here: extra ultra moist dark chocolate cake and extra dark, better than buttercream frosting--is made with avocados. And it's everything a chocolate cake is supposed to be and then some with pure, organic mineral rich cacao sprinkled on top. Also, once it's frosted, it's decadent like a dark chocolate truffle.
The year was 2000. I don't remember what even compelled me to audition. I saw an ad on Backstage.com and turned up at the audition address. There were about 3000 + other women in the line outside of the audition venue in NYC. And this is just the beginning of a tale of XFL past. And one of the original XFL Cheerleaders of the NY/NJ Hitmen.
Do you believe in soulmates? Do you believe in astrology? Do you believe that soulmates have anything at all to do with astrology? There has been much ado over the many, many years that people have been peopling-- that there is, in fact, a link between people coupling (or wanting to) and astrology.
On Best Morning (on Lite 98.7) we asked listeners to share some ideas to help both Dave and I (and our respective partners) to hotten our date nights up a few notches. Particularly now that spring has sprung.
Before you get too excited, this delectable ice cream -like treat is free of refined sugar (kindof), is made with whole ingredients you probably have in your pantry and is not made with dairy of any sort. It's also worthy of the word scrumptious.
When I tell you I felt the LOVE from the moment I stepped out of the car through to the moment I left, is not an understatement. The beauty of the property, the care for the many animals. The many things to do for people of every ability is awesome. It's part animal sanctuary, part vegetable farm and part love fest- The Root Farm grows and nourishes as many people souls as they do animals and produce.
