Nutrition
is at the core of
everything your body
does for you.

From health to sickness,
from energy to lethargy,
from happiness to depression –
the necessary nutrients your cells
receive or do not receive affect
everything about you. If only one cell
in your body is deprived, it slowly affects
the rest of you.

How should you
clean your teeth?
Let me count the ways!
When I was a kid
going to the dentist,
my dentist always told me
I had to brush harder.
What did that mean?
When my family moved to another city,
my new dentist told me totally different
things about brushing my teeth.

My Favorite Paleo Recipes:
Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Chocolate Avocado PubbingFor my taste buds, chocolate pudding is about the ultimate taste sensation I can imagine. I am a dark chocolate lover. But, chocolate pudding from a traditional recipe would be relatively unhealthy. Here is a yummy alternative. I found the original recipe from Healthy Holistic Living. However, I experimented with that recipe and changed the amounts of ingredients and added optional toppings to suit my taste. The following is my rendition of this delicious and nutritious treat.

 

Chocolate Avocado Pudding

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 Ripe avocados, mashed
  • 1/4 Cup organic cacao powder (my favorite: Viva Labs Certified Organic Cacao Powder)
  • 6 Tbsp coconut milk (my favorites: Native Forest Coconut Milk or Trader Joe’s Organic Coconut Milk – both in cans)
  • 2 Tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tsp organic, cold-pressed coconut oil
  • 6 Tbsp local raw honey (I wrote about the medicinal benefits of raw, unprocessed honey HERE.)
  • Optional toppings: organic coconut cream, fresh organic berries like blueberries and strawberries

 

Preparation:

  1. Place avocado, cacao powder, coconut milk, vanilla, coconut oil and raw honey into a mixing bowl and stir well. Use a stick blender on high until completely smooth (approximately 1 minute).
  2. Place in serving bowls, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Add toppings as desired when served.
