I almost always used balsamic vinegar and olive oil as my go to salad dressing. But after this post by @healthy_cravings and doing the 14 day raw food challenge with @fullyrawkristina I have ventured out into making different variations of my own, healthy salad dressings.
________________
My newest favorite is olive oil, raw honey, apple cider vinegar and lemons (you can add ginger for extra kick and benefits if you’d like). #doctorsalternative #madebyme #rawfood #raw #saladdressing #salad #vegan #veganfoodshare #veganrecipes #vegansofig #healthyhabits #healthycravings #healthandwellness #holistichealth #foodie #cleaneating

I could NOT get last night’s #healthydinner out of my head, and I didn’t know what I’d want for lunch during my shift at work. Solution? #Leftovers! Cheaper than ordering out, stretches our dollar a little further by giving you two meals for the price and prep time of one! Win-win! And yes, another #peachtea… did I mention it’s my favorite? ;) #weightlossjourney #weightloss #losingweight #fattofit #healthyeating #healthylunch #lunch #healthycraving #healthyfood #chobani #chobanipowered @chobani #avocado #protein #loveyourself #respectyourbody #cleaneating #eatclean #cleaneats

1 medium eggplant, diced
1 cup sliced okra (fresh or frozen)
1 clove garlic, minced

Vegan Jalapeño Poppers (makes 10 poppers )
_________________________

• 5 large jalapeno peppers, de-seeded and halved

————————————————-

Cheese mixture: || • 1/4 cup vegan Tofutti cream cheese • 1/4 cup vegan Daiya cheddar cheese shreds ||
————————————————-

Flour Mixture: || • 2 Tbsp whole wheat flour

• 1 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast

• dash of chipotle cayenne powder

• pinch of sea salt and pepper

• Panko Bread Crumbs

|| • small flat bowl of soy milk (about 1/4 cup)

• 1+ cups grape seed oil (you can also use safflower or olive oil) ||
_________________________

Directions: ||

• 1. Prep your jalapenos by halving them and carefully removing the seeds. Set aside.

• 2. Get your “breading” station set up. You will have a bowl for each of these: cheese mixture (fold the shreds into the cream cheese), flour mixture, panko crumbs, soy milk.

• 3. Start prepping your jalapenos. Here is the method: stuff with cheese, roll in milk, roll in flour, back in milk, roll in panko crumbs, set aside. Pressing the panko crumbs into the wet cheese layer really helps. Continue this process until all the jalapenos are stuffed and breaded.

• 4. Pour your oil into a large pot over med-high heat. Test the oil for heat-readiness by dropping one panko crumb into the oil - if it sizzles, the oil is hot enough. If you can get by with cooking all your poppers with 1 cup of oil, great. But if you want a more saturated “fry” you may need to add more.

• 5. Pan-fry eat jalapeno popper for about 90 seconds on each side. Flip with care.

• 6. Transfer poppers to a paper towels to cool for a few minutes before serving. || (via: lunchbox.com) ||

To go along with the previous post, here is an easy healing drink that you can make if you feel like you are catching the common cold or onset symptoms of the flu which is very similar to cold symptoms.
I am just trying to help somebody out as most people run to over the counter drugs and unnatural remedies at the first sign of a cold.
On my page I list all natural or homeopathic remedies and products you can take for safe and effective healing. Feel free to browse my archives for tons of info! :-)

Creating Healthy Eating Family Habits -

Eating habits are learned behaviors. So what your children learn to eat at home early in life sticks with them well into adulthood. Fewer and fewer Americans cook meals from scratch because it’s easier and faster to throw a frozen dinner in the oven or grab something from a fast-food restaurant on the way home from work. Here are some tips to help you create healthy eating habits in your home.
**When I don’t make London’s baby food from scratch I buy healthier alternatives**

**To read the FULL post visit my website: www.healthycravings.info**

1. Be a healthy role model - Some parents I know complain that their kids or spouse refuse to eat healthy and come to me for help with recipes. The real problem lies with the person who does the grocery shopping, not the spouse or children…

2. Take your kids shopping with you - Of course, it is easier to go alone but it is important for them to see foods in their RAW states so they can explore and ask questions…

3. Be flexible - If your child started on not so healthy food it will take time to get them back on the right track. If they are struggling getting off a sugar addiction “sweet tooth” there are healthier alternatives to Oreos and Soda…

4. Make mealtime special - Sit down and ENJOY your food. Take time to savor flavors. Children should never eat walking around. It is understood that some young children (like mine) have difficulty sitting for the entire meal…

5. Don’t be a short-order cook - Children take their time warming up to new things and if you keep giving them the same old foods they’re not going to branch out and explore new foods. Be patient…

6. Do not buy into marketing for kids - Kids don’t need frozen chicken nuggets, French fries, macaroni and cheese, and pizza to keep them happy. Highly processed foods like these are loaded with chemicals, synthetic fats, additives, artificial sweeteners, and food colorings…

7. Don’t use food as rewards, bribes, or punishments - Don’t give in! Bribing your child with sweets in exchange for them to do something you ask…

8. Let kids help in the kitchen - Encourage your children to help out in the kitchen. Even a two-year old can help peel potatoes or carrots. For smaller children, invest in a stool that allows your children to safely reach the kitchen counter so they can see what you’re doing…

9. Love and accept your child no matter what! - Love and accept your child at any weight, size, or shape. During childhood, growth is unpredictable at best. It comes in spurts and a once-skinny child can suddenly plump up while his height catches up with his weight. There’s a lot of pressure in our society to be thin…

10. Make sure your child eats breakfast - It’s the most important meal of the day, and it should ideally be the largest meal of the day to get your child off on the right foot…
