The scent of this tea fills your home with a heavenly spiced aroma with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and more wafting in the air. Take a big deep breath over the hot steam and soak it all in. This tea is made from all natural herbs and spices, Gerald often jokes that it looks like a witches brew so it is fitting for this season. No? No toil, just toss some herbs and spices in a pot once the water is boiling and allow it to simmer for 30 minutes creating an intoxicating smell and most of all, flavor. We love to have ours with some dairy free milk and when we splurge a little drizzle of syrup for a sweet cup of tea. This is our favorite chai tea that we've been drinking nearly every single night for months now. Come and get your cup, I promise you won't regret it.
Do you juice? Or Blend? Or both? For now, we blend. Getting an extra-large dose of fruit and vegetables in your day gives you a natural source of vitamins and minerals and juicing or blending is a great way to do this!
Making your own V8 Vegetable Juice is so empowering! We call it V10 as we added a couple extra vegetables. Simply blend, heat and drink hot (our favorite) or cold. Delicious, incredibly healing, cleansing and nutritious. We cannot get enough and will even drink it for breakfast. My husband is such a humongous fan even preferring it to a can of V8. You literally drink an entire blender full of vegetables. Spinach, parsley, celery, onion, garlic, beet, carrot, tomatoes, lime and bell pepper are combined together harmoniously. We leave the pulp for added health but straining yields perfect juice-like results, both are wonderful.
V10 Vegetable Juice is:
Enjoy the life-affirming health benefits! With lots of Love & Light, Christa

Ever since I discovered how to make a Pumpkin Spice Latte from the beautiful and talented Kathy Patalsky of Healthy.Happy.Life my husband and I have been hooked! With no pumpkin in our house and a serious hankering for a latte a new creation was born. A Cinnamon Vanilla Latte inspired by one of our favorite guilty pleasures we enjoy but this one is guilt-free, sugar-free and absolutely savory!
Note: I have a Blendtec that can handle hot liquids. It could be blended cool and then heated. I do it in this order for foam optimization. A handheld blender could also be used!
I hope you and yours enjoy this as much as we do!
With love, health and good vibrations!
This recipe is a must try and a for sure keeper! Jerry and I typically make homemade almond milk but I thought I'd try cashew milk! Take raw cashews, add water, blend and you are done! How easy is that? It takes less than 5 minutes, has 2 ingredients and 2 steps! How fabulous!
It's really good by itself. It can be used as a replacement to coffee creamer and milk. Feel free to add your favorite flavoring and sweetener! Some of my favorite sweeteners are stevia, dates and agave!
Cashews are sometimes referred to as "Natures Vitamin Pill" and are best in there raw state. Cashews hold 5 grams of protein per ounce, are high in fiber, and have very high levels of the essential minerals such as iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper and manganese! I knew I liked these for a reason, pass me some cashews please! :)
Tip: If you soak the cashews overnight, it will be even creamier!
Almonds are boosting with health benefits. Jerry and I have been experimenting with homemade alternative to expensive buys at the grocery store! Almond milk is a winner! It doesn't get much easier than this.
Enjoy milk in shakes, coffee, tea or whatever your heart desires!
Homemade ginger tea is the best! If you're not feeling well or would like a boost it's an easy way to go. Ginger is packed with vitamins and minerals. It is known to help aid in digestion, reduce inflammation, fight respiratory problems, improve blood flow, strengthen the immune system and help to relieve stress. Then add in lemon to aid in digestion, receive a vitamin c boost, aid in nutrient absorption, alkalinity, weight loss and more! A super powerful and healthy drink.
Alternatively, bring the ginger and water to a boil. Add any herbs you like if interested. Strain, add lemon and syrup to taste.
Ginger is spicy - add anywhere from a very small amount to a few large pieces if making a big pot.
