Blueberry Gelatin Smoothie

This blueberry smoothie is yet another delicious and nutritious way to get in some amazing berries and grass-fed gelatin into your diet.

(And I just have to say that I love that Costco has big bags of frozen organic berries, so that I can enjoy some delicious antioxidants all year round.  Thanks Costco!)

(Read here about some of the amazing health benefits of grass-fed gelatin.)


- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (homemade is best, or this kind)
- 2 cups frozen organic blueberries
- 1 small avocado
- handful of spinach
- 1 to 2 tablespoons raw honey
- 2 to 3 tablespoons grass-fed gelatin (I use this kind)
- optional: 1/4 cup chia-seed gel


1.  Add all of the ingredients into a high-speed blender, and blend until smooth and creamy.

2.  Serve immediately and enjoy!

Approximately 2-3 servings

Italian One-Pot

Life has been ridiculously busy for me lately, and my time windows to cook have been much smaller than usual... That doesn't stop me though from skimping on nutritional meals for my family and myself though.  I just have to take a few short-cuts. :)

This dish doesn't require any sautĂ©ing or too much chopping.  You pretty much throw it all into your pot, and 10 minutes later, you have a luxurious and delicious Italian feast!!


- 1 small onion, chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- 1 handful spinach, roughly chopped
- 2 cups mushrooms, roughly chopped (any variety)
- 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth (homemade is best, or I like this kind)
- 1 (26 to 28oz.) BPA-free can diced tomatoes (I like this kind)
- 12 oz. gluten free pasta (I like this, this or this kind)
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tablespoon dried basil
- 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon unrefined sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- dash of red pepper flakes
- optional: feta or parmesan cheese to top portions with 


1.  Add everything to your pot, gently stir, and turn heat to high.  (If using spaghetti, fettuccine or linguini noodles, break in half before adding to the pot).  Once it reaches a boil, turn heat to medium and continue to cook (and gently stir) for 8 to 10 minutes, or until noodles are done.

2.  Serve with optional cheese on top & more salt if needed, and enjoy!!

Approximately 4-6 servings
