With the holidays around the corner, it’s the perfect time to make homemade lotions and scrubs to give as gifts. 🌲🎁 I’ve given this sugar scrub for gifts to different people for years now - it’s so easy and everyone always loves getting something homemade!
All you have to do is combine 3 cups sugar, 1 cup coconut oil, and essential oil for scent (my favorite is lavender). 🌿 I also add Vitamin E oil, but it’s not necessary to make the scrub - all Vitamin E does is add a healing component.
This sugar scrub would be perfect with the dry shampoo or tallow balm recipes I’ve posted!! All SUPER easy DIY products with only a few ingredients that I’ll bet you already have in your pantry. I got you. 😘
* I use organic cane sugar like Wholesome or Heavenly Organics because it is a coarser grain which I feel has a better texture/more exfoliating than refined sugar. * The measurements are approximate but you may find you need to add more oil or more sugar to get the right texture. * Essential oils I have liked using for this are lemon, eucalyptus, peppermint and lavender!

I can’t believe I haven’t posted about these yet! @hailmerrysnacks
are all REALLY good, and the sweet potato flavor are my favorite. They’re like having my own mini sweet potato pie. They’re #glutenfree #vegan
. They use sweeteners like maple syrup, and other wholesome ingredients like coconut oil. I’ve tried every flavor and liked all of them. On a side note- these snacks were really there for me during my elimination diet. I emailed the company a hearty thank you for this and they responded with a coupon 💜 I get them at my local co-op but they’re also available at Sprouts. Check the refrigerated section!
Being a mom is by far the hardest job I’ve ever had. But it’s 💯 worth it and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. 🌎❤️

”Veni vidi vici”—I came, I ate all the chicken bacon ranch tacos, and I won trivia..or at least that’s the rough translation 🌮🏆
Hanukkah may be over, but lox and latkes are still on the menu! 🥰🤤
Did someone say dessert? YES 😍 another @bangpopmelb
appreciation post bc this place deserves it! This was the Thai dessert tasting platter and oh boy, was it DELICIOUS ❤️ shared this with the boyf whilst sitting outside enjoying one of the few beautiful sunsets Melbourne has had over the past week 🔆 Cannot express enough how comforting it is that restaurants make efforts to have gluten free options as well as coeliac options- very important! ❤️
Hello picnic weather! #finally
😜 Might I recommend this for your next weekend adventure? A gluten free/entirely plant-based quiche – the crust took some time to master, it’s a blend of millet and sunflower – non soggy, light and holds perfectly.
The filling is a blend of tofu with sun dried tomatoes and spinach. Loads of spices in there – and a little black salt – which adds an eggy-like taste. I’ll quite often pull all kinds of wild things out of the garden and add them in – so go crazy kids.
Packed with protein, fibre, calcium, iron and zinc – this is a particularly nutritious meal.
Speaking of adventuring – Stipe and I aren’t heading away over Christmas, but we are going to explore as many walks and National parks in Auckland’s proximity. I think one of my favourite bush walks so far has been the track out at Wenderholm. Anyone have any suggestions to add to our list? And where are you guys off to? This break is so deserved isn’t it – what a year!

I’ve never actually *tried* to cut a pomegranate, so maybe it’s not that difficult. Either way- these seeds were a nice find. I put them on my PB toast and used the rest as a quick snack.
After a full 11 days with no phones, social media or internet and spending our days hiking in the beautiful New Zealand mountains (and drinking lots of wine in Vineyards!🍷) I am back online, feeling refreshed and ready to get back to my online tribe ⠀
I have a big question for all my women out there: are you frustrated with the options on the market for birth control? ⠀
Do you want to to avoid pregnancy using 'natural' (hormone-free) methods but are struggling to find one that works for you? ⠀
Would you be interested in a course that teaches you how to identify the fertile phases of your cycle so that you can avoid pregnancy confidently without the use of hormonal methods and allows you to truely understand your body?⠀
If any of this resonates with you, please comment or send me a DM - your answer will help me develop an exciting new project. Thanks everyone - I appreciate your support 🤗
Being the introvert that I am, it took me awhile to feel comfortable just being me. But the world is full of too many people to not be your unique self! Let your personality shine and don’t be afraid to be who you are! 💋 #selflove
Now my tiny girl is eating some solids, these have been as important as ever to help her stay happy and regular. I also got a fun text from a cousin who’s baby was really colicky. She said they started him on these baby probiotics and he’s way happier! Now if only I was making commission off this or something haha. But really- gut health has made such a huge difference in my life (especially getting my autoimmune disease into remission) and my family’s lives, I just want to shout it from the rooftops! If you wanna feel better, you can! It starts with your gut! 😱😍🎉

Melt in your mouth delicious choc coconut & raspberry brownies available with our dessert tables. Did we mention they are Gluten free & dairy free 😉😘
Nice couple of finds in @marksandspencerfoodpr
store! I love toad in the hole but most contain the dreaded gluten so these look a right nice treat! Also found some chicken goujons too which you get loads in a packet! Nice GF treats M&S 😍😍
Las cosas buenas que trae el verano ☀️ 🍓 🍌 Licuado de frutilla y banana (mucho hielo y leche).

On these dark Swedish nights all I crave is hearty and carby foods 😂 So a guilty pleasure of mine has always been pasta 🍝 On our way home, we ditched our original dinner plans and opted for some fresh gluten free pasta from the local supermarket (oh how I love how there are so many gluten free products in 🇸🇪). We made a creamy pesto pasta with chicken, substituting yoghurt instead of cream (to make it a little healthier)🍴We also added some fresh spinach, pecorino cheese and fresh basil 🌿 What’s your favourite guilty pleasure during these dark winter months? 😋
Festive, fun treats for the holidays #mrmochi
