Coconut Oil is my new JAM. Use it on your body as a cheap and highly effective (and all natural, organic, anti-aging, the list goes on…) moisturizer, throw it on your face at night and go to bed smelling like a Mounds Bar, but wake up looking like a million bucks! Toss is on some sweet potatoes and throw them in the oven. I am telling you this stuff is the.real.deal. And I am currently religious about using it anywhere and everywhere.
That’s all for now!
PS – read up and get on the train!
Ok, so I don’t know if it comes with the territory of co-habitation or if I am just fully embracing living in Brooklyn, but I have been SO into cooking and holistic health these days … Maybe it’s the thrill of feeding someone besides myself, or just having actual SPACE to cook, but I have really found making homemade meals to be extremely gratifying. While I am fully against fad dieting, I really love finding ways to improve my health and, along with exercise, diet is the easiest way to do that (something I know you have never heard before). I think I am somewhat of a foodie, so I don’t like slacking on meals (besides the occasional pb & j – it never fails), so when I found this website that was equal parts healthy, easy to make and full of FLAVA (Did I mention vegan? Which I most definitely AM NOT.) – I was beside myself! And, where better to share this little gem than right here with you all! So without further a do, I present you… Oh She Glows!
Here are a few of my faves that I have whipped up so far…
Creamy Avocado Pasta (I used soba noodles – so easy and delish!)
No Fail Hummus
Vegan Bowl (Don’t be scared – this thing is GOOD and sure to make you glow!)
And a few more recipes on my to do list…
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough “Blizzard”
(I made this similar recipe recently which was ri-dic-u-lous. I could say I will never eat real icecream again, but I wouldn’t lie to you.)
Green Warrior Smoothie
Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal (for my carrot cake loving boyfriend)
Can you believe these are VEGAN!? Trust me you won’t miss your steak and potatoes after you whip up one of these bad boys!
Hope you’re all having a good week!
PS – a couple more healthy and delicious recipes I have made lately… kale and sesame soba noodles with a fried egg, 7 ingredient raw cookie dough bites, flourless peanut butter chunk cookies
