Delicious and Healthy Nice Cream Recipe

3 Ingredient Summer “Nice Cream” Recipe This has been our summer go to dessert and it’s super easy and affordable to make. We have been taking advantage of berry season here in Michigan both at the local farmers market and our own back yard. Since this recipe calls for frozen berries, I simply place the freshly picked berries on parchment paper (on a baking tray) in the freezer until completely frozen. Now I want to share why we decided to switch to “nice cream.” The Switch from Dairy to Nice Cream When we eat dairy, we strive for organic, grass fed and local. Organic and grass fed are important because it means that the cows are able to eat exactly what nature intended them to eat, the things that grow from the earth. To ruminate in the fields and to enjoy a variety of delicious and nutritious “grasses.” Since dairy is a product that comes from another animal, it’s important to think about the lifestyle that the animal has.

Honoring Your Energy using Human Design

Honoring your Unique Energy ✨ An Inquiry into Human Design⁠ Have you ever thought about your energy?⁠ ⁠ When I think of energy, I think of the essence, the impression, the inner attitude, what’s behind the image, the shell, and the particular way it interacts in the physical world. Spirit, prana, chi, it’s the life force that animates each and everyone of us. This energy is flavored by the cosmos creating your unique personality. ⁠   We affect our Energy⁠ I believe we are responsible for our energetic imprint based on our thoughts, actions and the words we choose to say. Our energy is unique to us and is a reflection of whether or not we are in alignment with our soul’s code. To understand something so abstract we need a system. ⁠Luckily there are many systems that have been used since time immemorial. ⁠ For me that System is Human Design ⁠ Human design has helped me to step into understanding my energy. Giving me true permission to be myself. Realizing that as a …

Human Design for Everyone

Human Design for Everyone I want to make Human Design available for EVERYONE. As someone who is in the realm of wellness, I feel it is my responsibility to create offerings that are available for as many people as possible. A common theme I am seeing a lot is a pay barrier. I think wellness people should get paid what they feel they deserve but often this creates a barrier for people who want access to health but are not able to afford it. It is my hope through my various offerings to help as many people as possible  have access to this information so that they can continue to shine. One way I am doing this is by offering donation based Human Design Readings. I am inspired by the Yoga with Adriene model of sharing free content on Youtube and having some offerings and membership along the way. Why Human Design? Human Design has really shifted  the way I see myself in this world. From digging deep into human design I understand that I …

If you are interested in purchasing, you can buy from my Etsy Shop. Discovering the use of oil on the skin has been transformative. I feel like I am actually nourishing my skin instead of drying it out and adding tons of chemicals which are often found in many conventional beauty products. If there is anything you should take away from this article, it’s that we don’t need nearly as much as we think we do.

Eco Beauty Find: Ethique Solid Shampoo

Eco Beauty Find- Ethique Solid Shampoo I love sharing good products when I find them, especially when the company supports a cleaner world and takes responsibility for their ingredients and the products. I was first introduced to Ethique by a Youtuber named Sustainably Vegan, who is the epitome of a sustainable person. I believe that we can all make small changes to create an impact. The individual choices we make each day contribute to the whole. So if we choose to buy things in a conscious way, we are contributing to the change. We can choose to support sustainable brands A really fun part about buying from Ethique is they tell you what your impact is. When you make an account with them they have a section that shows you what your impact is. I have only made one purchase and this feels pretty rewarding to me. Knowing that when I participate in an exchange with their company that they are not in it to just make a profit. They want to create an impact. …
