This month for me has been amazing with trying out the whole Plant based diet. I am loving it, and I am here to share with you one of my favorite recipes. I don’t know if you are a wrap lover like me, but some of those wraps can get really fattening. They seem like they are healthy, but believe me when I say they are not. I’ve looked up the nutrition facts on some of them and I’m blown away at the calorie intake. Wow! I now make my own healthy meals at home with organic, fresh ingredients and they taste better than what you get out. Here is one of my all time favorites.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED :
. 1 Organic avocado
. 1 organic chick pea wrap or vegetarian wrap ( depending on what you like)
. 1 small organic tomato ( diced )
. 1/2 cup organic black beans
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
-Lay out the wrap. I like to put mine in a skillet before hand and get both sides of mine brown and crisp. Slice the avocado and scoop out the inside. When its scooped out, slice and set . Dice up your tomato. You can add a bit of pepper to your tomato to give it a twist. Once you have that done, spread your avocado on the wrap. Spread black beans out and top with tomato After you get it done, sprinkle pepper and red cracked pepper on top. ENJOY!
What morning isn’t perfect without the perfect coffee drink to start your morning? The morning is my favorite part of the day because it’s coffee time. There is something really intimate about sitting down with your cup of coffee and taking a few minutes of solitude to think about what your day is going to consist of. Needless to say, I absolutely love coffee and everything that goes along with it. I use to go through Starbucks every morning, until I realized that I can make my favorite drink right at home and a lot healthier. My sweet almond milk latte is the best little drink to get my day started.
WHAT YOU NEED:
Espresso: I use a Nespresso machine with the pods that fit into it. I’m not saying you have to run out and buy one. You can use your very own coffee maker you have. You just need to make sure that your coffee is a lot stronger than normal and you can use 1/4 cup of your favorite. I’ve used my own coffee maker before I actually bought a Nespresso machine.
Organic Almond milk
Organic Maple Syrup: I use this to give my latte a little sweetness.
HOW TO MAKE IT:
. Get a glass and start filling it with some ice cubes. You want to brew the coffee over the ice.
. Pour the Almond Milk into a blender and make sure that it completely blended. Add in a bit of the Maple Syrup if you want that.
.Pour the Almond Milk over your Espresso. Stir and Enjoy your amazing Almond Milk Latte.

Immune Boosting is Key. I find that taking time each day to take the required supplements and getting in enough exercise can truly help you reduce your chances of catching those pesky viruses. I truly believe in ingesting plenty of healthy fruits and vegetables daily to keep your immunity up. One reason we catch crazy sicknesses is our immune system needs built up. Immunity plays such a huge role in fighting off nasty sicknesses. Boosting our immunity is key. This Green Smoothie recipe is one that I make almost every day. It’s not only delicious, but it is filled with so many immune boosters that it is perfect for keeping yourself healthy and thriving. You can also add in some extras like Acai powder or Maca for a little more protection.

The time has come where all the health resolutions come into place. The time where we get into the gym more, eat healthier options, and go grab a smoothie instead of a fat filled coffee drink from Starbucks. If you need some assistance in any way, I have some great tips on how to motivate yourself to lose those last pesky pounds. We all know that muscle weighs more than fat. If you are working out regularly and lifting weights, then the scale is automatically going to be higher. You don’t look at the scale ever. You go by the way your clothes fit on you. If you feel your jeans are a bit bigger, then your probably losing inches in that area or tightening and firming. These health tips will surely move you in the right directions.
Lose the bad carbs..when I say bad carbs I mean anything heavy and white. Potatoes, pasta, bread, and sweets. That all has hidden sugars which in turn doesn’t help with your weight loss. Stick to healthy carbs.. quinoa, brown rice only in small quantities.
Ingest the H20 like nothing else. Anything liquid to drink besides tea and water. Water is essential for weight loss. It flushed toxins and cleans the inside. It prevents dehydration and keeps our energy levels up. Make sure you are constantly drinking water.
Eat more leafy greens and vegetables. These foods are essential for your well being and energy levels and are loaded with antioxidants. Eating raw , clean healthy foods will help you on your way to weight loss. Pick light salads over heavy dressing salads. Don’t load your salad up with a ton of toppings. Instead load them up with colorful vegetables. It truly makes a difference.
Move more! Make a pact with yourself everyday that you are going to move! Exercise is the key to feeling good and having energy. Why not kill some calories while doing it. Walk daily, go to yoga, bike ride. Whatever it is, you will be better off after than you were before.
This is always a good time for a fresh start. Starting an exercise routine is always good for starting your health journey. Know that it does take time. Setting goals is always a good daily thing to adopt too. It really keeps you accountable for your health.
