side note... a little about turmeric: 

In any time of year, one of my favorite herbs to use in cooking is fresh turmeric root. While we may be familiar with this herb as a powder (bright yellow), an ingredient in South Asian dishes (providing the characteristic yellow color of curry) or even as the spice that gives the condiment mustard its golden hue, turmeric can be increasingly found in its raw form at markets, as a root. Related to the more familiar + ubiquitous ginger root, turmeric is smaller in size + darker in color, but equally potent in taste + medicinal power.

It’s potent, slightly bitter, flavor makes it a bit more of an acquired taste than the familiar ginger, but it provides an earthy depth, especially for fall dishes.

Turmeric is more than simply a culinary herb. It is one of the most beloved medicinal plants in the Ayurvedic tradition. Traditionally, it is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent (and modern research studies confirm its efficacy). Its other medicinal uses include helping to regulate blood sugar levels, improving the skin + complexion, encouraging the release of excess heat from the body, strengthening the immune system, and even serving as a cancer preventative. It is also a potent natural antihistamine. Eating turmeric every day in some form would not be too often.. try adding a sprinkle or two in your smoothie! {trust me on this one!}

 

now back to the recipe...!

Do this: 

 

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. On a baking sheet, roast the spices (except cinnamon + Green Dream) in the oven for approx 6 min, until fragrant. Grind the roasted spices in a mortar pestle + then add in the cinnamon + Green Dream. 

 

In a pot on medium low heat, gently sauté the onion, garlic + ginger in coconut oil. Once softened, add the spices _ tomato paste, cook for another 2-3 minutes on low heat, stirring frequently, then add the coconut milk. 

 

Fill the empty coconut milk can with water, give it a stir, then add to the curry. Add the vegetables + mushrooms, except spinach, and let the curry simmer for 15-20 mins, or until the sweet potato is soft.

 

Taste to see if it has enough chili for your preference, if not add a few more flakes. Season with salt and pepper.

 

Take off the heat, and stir through spinach. Serve topped with fresh coriander leaves over a bed of quinoa, brown rice or spinach.

Gluten-free Holiday Spiced Pancakes

The holidays are all about eating tons of nourishing, beautiful food and celebrating with friends and family. This is a beautiful time to shift into slow mornings together with stacks of these buttery pancakes topped with superfood honey. 

 

This recipe is insanely simple because of Bob Red Mill’s Gluten-Free Pancake Mix. I also subbed in almond milk and coconut oil instead of regular milk + oil (it’s THAT easy to make healthy substitutions). Finally, I added a touch of our Fall Vibes Superfood Blend (limited supply left in stock!) for the pumpkin flavor because I’m obsessed and topped with our Berry Bee Honey instead of maple syrup which makes this stack extra sweet and extra nutritious! Perfect for the family to enjoy. 

 

These cakes were so thick and tasty - you're going to want to make them all week long!

Gather This:

1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pancake Mix

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 egg

¾ cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)

1 tbsp Fall Vibes Superfood Blend

Drizzle of Berry Bee Honey


Do This:

Heat a lightly greased pan over medium heat. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until just combined and then pour ¼ cup portion into pan. Cook until bubbly, then flip and cook until done, about 2-3 minutes per side. Serve while hot and top with a drizzle of Berry Bee Honey and your favorite granola.

Peppermint Collagen Hot Chocolate

The holiday season is all about celebrations with friends and loved ones surrounded by good food. What we nourish our bodies affects our health and mood; when we nourish ourselves with real food and lovingly enjoy a holiday treat we are more likely to maintain bliss and balance. 


No need to deprive yourself and definitely no need for judgment or guilt, especially when you incorporate high-vibe superfoods into your holiday treats!


This rich, minty hot chocolate gets its smooth texture from highly nutritious nut milk and its subtle sweetness from immunity-boosting honey. We’ve added our Cacao Magic blend for a variety of potent superfoods, including a dose of finely milled reishi mushroom powder, known to have an ever-growing list of healing properties. And a boost of our Cosmic Elixir for collagen and superfoods.

3 tbsp Cacao Magic or raw cacao

1 ½ tbsp sweetener of choice

A small pinch of salt

¼ tsp peppermint extract

Simmer for another minute or so, keeping an eye on the chocolate to make sure it doesn’t burn. Remove from heat. Enjoy warm or chilled (wine glass over ice)!
