Thanksgiving is such an easy time to overeat and hurt our bodies, and we let ourselves do so! Thanksgiving doesn't have to be painful to your stomach or your body. You can make a few changes and make this the best Thanksgiving yet!
Happy November Friends! I can't believe that we are just a few weeks away from Thanksgiving! Where is this year going?! As we all begin our preparations for the holiday, I wanted to share some very important tips to make this Thanksgiving not only the most delicious, but also one that you can walk away from feeling amazing! It is so easy to overeat and overeat so many foods that are so hard on our systems. They leave us feeling bloated, sick, and not how we want to feel. Holiday's should never be a reason to feel this way - and they never have to be again!
With all of those tips in mind - I wanted to take a classic recipe and change it up a little bit. We are going to be taking your classic bread stuffing, and making a farro and Vegetable stuffing that is SO delicious I can't wait for you to try it! Take this for a spin, and make your Turkey appreciate it too! farro is an ancient grain, just like flaxseed, and a wonderful ancient grain to have in your diet. It also can hold seasoning and flavor so well that it's very easy to add into dishes that you might usually use rice or other similar heavy carb items.

It's just a simple seed, right? One of the oldest grains in the world might be the key to your best health yet, and it is so simple to add to almost any recipe!
Hello Friends! How is it already September? I hope your little ones have enjoyed their first few weeks back at school, and you're enjoying the last (very warm) summer days! Did you enjoy my recipes last month? This month we are going to be talking about one of my favorite items to cook and bake with, Flax Seeds! Again, these little seeds haven't just been a trend in recent years. They are one of the oldest superfoods in the world and have a really interesting history.
These little seeds have been cultivated as early as 3000 BC in Babylon. They were cultivated in ancient Egypt and China and played a huge role in Asian medicines for thousands of years. Powerful leaders like Charles the Great and Charlemagne ordered their subjects and warriors to eat them for their incredible nutrients. They were once called "Linum Usitatissimum" meaning the most useful, and for good reason.
Today these seeds are categorized as a superfood and called one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet. Rightfully so!
