Fishy Tempeh Tacos


For these tacos, we used organic Tempeh for the texture and added the fishy flavor by dipping the 1/2″ strips in lemon-lime essential oil infused olive oil then topped with minced garlic, salt/pepper and chili flakes. Baked at 350* for 15-20 minutes.
Lemon-lime infused olive oil…What is that, you might be thinking to yourself?? 2 tablespoons Garlic infused olive oil mixed with 2 drops lemon essential oil and 2 drops lime essential oil. Digestible, high quality essential oils are best for this! Want to learn more about cooking with essential oils, click here for more information.

After your tempeh is cooked, warm up those tortillas, top it with your favorite greens (we used spinach), tomatoes, sriracha and egg-less, plant based mayo. If you have an avocado on hand, you better throw that on there too!



California Chili


This California Chili was such an inexpensive and easy meal, I just had to share it. Enjoy it and share your feedback after creating it yourself!
In a slow cooker:
1/2 cup black beans
1/2 cup pinto beans
1/4 cup quinoa
1/4 cup cous cous
4 carrots (chopped)
1/2 zucchini (chopped)
1 tomato (chopped)
1 whole dried California chile
1 white or yellow onion (chopped)
5 cloves garlic
1 handful cilantro (chopped)
2 tablespoons Himalayan sea salt
1/2 gallon water

Cook these ingredients on low for 8 hours then adjust temperature to “keep warm” and add following mixture:
1 teaspoon chile powder
3 tablespoons sriracha sauce (adjust to taste)
2oz coconut oil
3 drops black pepper essential oil
2 drops cumin essential oil

Serve it up and top with your favorite additions. I loved it with avocado, mustard and more sriracha.

DIY Detox Face Mask


Bentonite clay, also called Montmorillonite clay, is composed of ash made from volcanos. It stems back far in history as a traditional healing method for protecting the body from foreign invaders. Because the clay is readily available and requires no modern processing, it has been a popular and cost-effective way of “detoxing” the body for centuries. On top of being able to draw-out toxins from the body, the clay itself has a range of nutrients. Bentonite clay is known to have an abundance of minerals, including calcium, magnesium, silica, sodium, copper, iron and potassium.
It also benefits the body because it has the ability to produce a charge that is electrical in nature when it comes in contact with liquid. When the clay touches any type of fluid (normally water), it takes on a different charge and is thought to bind to any present toxins within the fluid. Bentonite clay essentially “seeks” toxins in the body to bind with because naturally any substance that has a missing ion (which gives it its “charge”) looks for oppositely charged types of substances that will make it complete. Upon binding, the clay is then able to help remove toxins, chemicals, impurities and “heavy metals” from the gut, skin and mouth.
With all that being said, why wouldn’t you want to rub this amazing clay all over your face?! It only makes sense! So we super-charged this already powerful face mask with Myrrh, Melaleuca, and Cedarwood essential oils to promote a pure, smooth, youthful-looking complexion. After using this, your face will be cleansed, restored and renewed. For best results, use 1-2 times per week. Enjoy!

To make (for 3 people):
Mix 1/2 wooden teaspoon bentonite clay with 1 drop each essential oil (melaleuca, cedarwood and myrrh). Add water and mix until it reaches desired consistency. Apply to freshly washed face and let dry for 20minutes. Rinse off with clean water and moisturize as normal.
