Victory Tea- A wonderful reward

Standard

Thursday night:

Exhausted, still over 3 hours to go on this biology thesis

Relax, take a bath, back to reality of the computer calling me

A little inspirational music to keep the time ticking quickly and get the words down quick

and then, a miracle…

I stare over my finalized 7 page deal, there- I exclaim.

It’s 12pm, I’m exhausted but I really want to reward myself for all this hard work, after all this paper kicked my butt!

I run downstairs, reach for my favorite tea: Tazo Passion

And pour water into my mustard colored tea-kettle, the whistle wakes me up a little, and I pour the water, and steep my tea.

Then, I go back upstairs, and drink slow sips of my tea sweetned with Amber Agave, and think about my life goals some,

Finally I doze of to sleep and wake up all over again with my morning incantation!

Remember for any goal: It’s 80% why you want to achieve it, and 20% how you’re going to achieve it!

Daily Apple Cider Vinegar tricks!

Standard

Everyday, when I first wake up, and right after my morning incantation, I drink my alkalyzing beverage: Apple cider vinegar in water.

Here are a few other ways to keep Apple cider vinegar close during the day:

-Drop a few drops in your water bottle to take to work and stay 3 times more hydrates than just regular water

-Make your own salad dressing: juice of one orange, teaspoon apple cider vinegar, teaspoon Grapeseed oil, salt & pepper.

-drip apple cider vinegar on a washcloth and wash your hands using it as an anti-bateria soap.

-mix 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar to 1/4 cup dried clay to make a face mask-Amazing results

 

Sounds like you need to go to the store and buy a gallon bottle!

Remember it’s important for these purposes for your apple cider vinegar to be: raw, unfiltered, and “with the mother” or “living strands”.

 

Stay alkalized!

The new year came early, without notice again.

Gingerbread Peanut Butter Dip with Apple slices!

Standard

I made this dip for my psychology classes party.

You know, one of those parties where you should bring a treat in order to taste the other treats.

Since this party was in the midst of finals week, needless to say, I only remembered about my share of this at midnight the night before

Quick google search, “fastest dip”

Results: peanut butter dip-too simple, and boring!

So, my friends, here’s an easy four minute trick!

 

Gingerbread Peanut Butter Dip: (inspired by peanut butter dip)

-One cup Peanut Butter (choose Organic, honey sweetened if you can)

-One package low fat Creme Chesse (Replace with tofuti better-than-creme cheese to make this vegan)

-One tablespoon unsulphered natural Molasses

-1/4 cup Honey (or 1/4 cup Brown sugar)

-one teaspoon Pumpkin Spice mix

-1/3 cup Almond milk

 

Blend all together in the food processor until creamy! These taste yummy with fresh apple slices. Squeeze lemon juice on the apple slices to prevent them from decoloration.
