Papaya Popsicles

Papaya Popsicle Recipe – Improves Digestion & Response to Heat Stress

I live in Tampa. So for me and the rest of the northern hemisphere, we’re well into the warmest season of the year: Summer. And, Nothing screams summer like a popsicle. Am I right?

Think About It

On a sweltering day in July (it’s 85 plus degrees on the regular in my neck of the woods!) when even just wiggling my pinky makes me break a sweat, it makes sense that I instinctively want to load up on foods that both energize and hydrate me.

Fourth of July “Star-Spangled” Parfait

After a while, your body systems start to break down, and you begin to experience unwanted symptoms. READ MORE

Sloth Propeller

“Sloth Propeller” Recipe – Naturally Sweet Bulletproof Style Coffee

Aaaah coffee! It is to me the smell of a very good Saturday morning (because I pretty much only drink coffee on Saturdays or sometimes Sundays). 

I grew up drinking it (because, of course it’s a staple in any Colombian household!) and had my first taste when I was still a wee thing. My dad has always liked it strong topped off with a little whole milk. But me, I like it cafe con leche style: thick, creamy and sweet. But alas, that is not a health promoting option 🙁 Unless…

Unless you do it my way! Enter “Sloth Propeller”…

Bone Broth—Liquid Gold Magic Juice

Aaaaah bone broth…an ancient, savory elixir that’s been a staple in the diet of many a culture and persists in many even today. The Italians call it brodo, while the Latinos call it caldo. But despite all of these eloquent and alluring (dare we say exotic) descriptions, what exactly is it?READ MORE
