Did you Know?

Seaweeds are one of the most highly concentrated sources of naturally occurring iodine, which is incredibly important to our bodies as it helps us maintain healthy thyroid function and efficient metabolism and aids in the production of hormones. Try out seaweed snacks or my Kale Caesar Nori Wrap.

Add Baked Citrus Tempeh to your batch cooking plan this weekend! It’s adapted from a recipe from the Nutrition Stripped Society and SO versatile and delicious!

Move that Bod!

Try Hannah Davis’s Forward Reverse Lunge from the Full Body Workout last week:

Begin by taking a big step forward and dropping into a lunge. Push back through the heel of your front foot to return to center. With that same leg, take a big step back into a reverse lunge. Complete all reps on one side before switching legs.

Comment of the week

Suely B E said about the Dark Chocolate Avocado Mousse...

In Brasil avocado is actually used in desserts … (we don’t eat guacamole there, we are not Spanish origin, but Portuguese). We use avocado for mousse, ice cream, popsicles, etc. Thank you for the wonderful dark chocolate recipe combined with avocado 😊
