3 Simple Steps to make Healthy Coconut Whip Cream

Step 1: Refrigerate a can of Organic Coconut Milk (best over night)

Step 2: Flip the can upside down, open & pour off the coconut water. (don't discard! save to drink or add to a smoothie)

Step 3: Scoop out the thickened coconut cream, add a splash of vanilla extract and whip it together. (I like to use my magic bullet to blend. The cup doubles as a simple storage container for leftovers)

Optional Add In: A touch of your favourite Low G.I. Sweetener before you blend.

Enjoy a dollop of Healthy Coconut Whip Cream any way you like or with one of the following yummy healthy treats!

Lyle MacWilliam on The Dr. Oz Show & Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements

On today's episode of the Dr. Oz Show, Author, educator and biochemist, Lyle MacWilliam, spoke about his book, The Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements. In an earlier post I highlighted the top rated supplement according to this guide.  Here is a Quick overview of the segment, incase you missed it!

Dr. Oz's Top 3 Reason's why to Take a Daily Nutritional Supplement
  • Poor Diet - Most people don't eat enough of the healthy foods like fruits & Vegetable that we should.
  • Overcooking Foods - We loose Nutrients & Destroy them through the cooking process.
  • Age - our metabolic rate and body process's change as we get older.
The Question was Asked by a viewer: How much is too much when it comes to taking nutritional supplements.

Your Guide to Finding a 5 Star Nutritional Supplement

Today on The Dr. Oz Show, Lyle MacWilliam's NutriSearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements was featured. With so many different supplements on the market, it can be hard to know which one to trust. This Comparative Guide makes it simple.

The NutriSearch Comparative Guide contains INDEPENDANT ratings based on a wide range of health criteria as well as a blended standard created by 12 nutritional authorities. This is key...many company's make claims about being the best, but when a credible third party backs them up? Boom.

I was thrilled to see the MultiVitamin I take and recommend to be the Top Rated supplement in all of North America!

Star Wars, Destiny and 2016 New Years Resolutions

Recently, I watched the much anticipated movie, Star Wars, The Force Awakens.

I am by no means, a Star Wars "super fan" but I am married to one and have sat through family Star Wars marathons, on more than one occasion. As a result, I have grown an appreciation for this time loved series.

There were some profound statements and messages that stuck out to me from Star Wars, The Force Awakens.Without going into too much detail, so as not to spoil it for those of you who have not yet seen the movie,  I will share my thoughts. If you have already seen the movie, you'll understand the context of these lines, spoken by the character Maz.

"I see your eyes - you already know the truth."

"The belonging you seek is not behind you, it is ahead."

15 Fun Facts about me

  1. I have a mennonite heritage. My parents were raised traditional mennonite; wearing kerchiefs, speaking low-german, living simply and following the teachings of Meno Simons. I have the roots and the faith in Jesus but I don’t follow the most of the customs and traditions. I have discovered a personal relationship with God that has brought freedom from the rules and regulations of religion.
  2. I am sort of a computer tech geek...not on purpose, just from years of googling how to's and solutions. I have built my website from scratch and am "that person" you call when you can't figure something out. 
  3. I had my first baby when I was 16 and have been a single mom twice over in my lifetime. I'll share those stories in up-coming blog posts :)
