This whimsy cocktail is the perfect way to welcome Spring. The sweet & sour flavors of lime & coconut will have you in the mood for warmer weather instantly! Even when indulging, it's important to me to use as many natural ingredients as possible. I turned to my trusty La Croix sparkling water , Stirrings simple syrup , & fresh lime juice. Beets are one of my favorite foods to use when I need to add a pink tint to any food or drink. It only takes a tiny amount of cooked beet to add the color which makes the flavor virtually undetectable. I snagged some violets growing wild in the...

This recipe is inspired by the lovely colors of Spring. My allergies may not be happy, but this superfood latte is sure to soothe them. Beets are full of things our bodies need like: Iron Magnesium Folic Acid Calcium They are thought to be anti-inflammatory, cleanse the colon, and create an overall sense of well-being. I personally love the flavor of beets, especially when combined with sweet coconut milk. I hope you enjoy this recipe!

Cheers to your health! This cocktail will flood your senses with lavender, elderberry, and juniper. I love kombucha! The fizz, the fruitiness, and the health benefits! Kombucha is said to: Improve joint health Improve digestions Encourage mood stability Boost immune functions We don't usually think about what's good for us when preparing cocktails. We are usually thinking more about what tastes good and feels good. But, why not include some gut-healthy probiotics next time you sip a cocktail! GT's Kombucha flavor Lavender Love™ gives this drink it's distinct, floral flavor.

Spiked Almond Holiday Nog

The holidays are here and it is absolutely the most wonderful time of the year! Holiday food and drink is one of my favorite ways to celebrate. After giving up most of my dairy intake last year, I was concerned I would miss out on egg nog this holiday season. I have tried several alternative soy nogs, and none really hit the spot. As I was strolling through our local grocery store, I noticed my favorite brand of almond milk (Califia Farms) was selling holiday nog. I tried not to get my hopes too high, in fear of being dissappointed once again. But, as soon as I took my first sip, I was...

What wine do you drink?

As some of you may know, I recently gave up beer and liquor almost entirely this last year. I found it was giving me a little digestive trouble and causing me some strange health related issues. I now have a couple of glasses of wine most days, with the occasional beer or liquor mixed in. Photo: Creative Commons So, my question to all my readers... what is your favorite wine to drink? I must admit that I stick to Oregon Pinot Noirs most of the time (and mix them with coconut la croix... don't judge!) I would love to branch out into more earthy, less sweet wines, but feel I lack the knowledge...

Hi my name is Jessica and I am obsessed with Autumn. I admit it. OBSESSED! All year I wait for the hot days to change over into cool, crisp mornings. I love Winter even more, but we will save that for another day. I enjoy a rich, indulgent pumpkin spice drink as much as anyone, but I try to be cautious with what foods I put into my body on a daily basis. I make every attempt to eat whole foods that are minimally processed. I decided I wanted to add more pumpkin spice into my life without all of the added sugars so I created this simple recipe. I really like to chill it for few hours before...

Christmas is without a doubt my favorite time of year. The crisp air brings hopes of snow, cozy fires, and quality time spent with the ones you love. In my adult years I have grown to love a big Christmas brunch. I enjoy preparing eggs, bacon, biscuits, fresh fruit and of course no brunch is complete without a delightful cocktail! My go to Summer cocktail is a mimosa so for Christmas I decided to do a mimosa with a twist. The combination of cranberry and rosemary always puts me in the mood for holiday cheer. This year as you snuggle up close to those you love, open gifts, and sing carols I...

The ancient Romans are thought to have brought mulled wine to Europe in the 2nd Century. They believed by drinking warm wine brewed with certain spices they would ward off disease and keep themselves healthy throughout the colder months. I am not certain how or if mulled wine would improve my health, but I know it improves my mood! This recipe is simple and the perfect drink to warm up your home and put you in a state of relaxation and joy. The smell alone is enough to boost your mood- oranges, cinnamon, cider and wine will fill your senses with holiday cheer. We opted to avoid any added...
