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:
Pumpkin Spice Latte

Pumpkin Spice LatteI love my coffee. And I love to “spice” it up. This is a great coffee treat anytime of the year, but October and November seem to be the months when everyone thinks about pumpkins.

 

By definition, a “latte” is made with espresso coffee and hot steamed milk. You could make my Pumpkin Spice Latte that way, but I don’t. I start off with a high-quality, organic, dark-roast coffee bean that I use in a French Press. Then, I add coconut cream, but I do not steam it. The remaining ingredients go in, and I whip it up.

 

Also, I do not use any sweetener in my coffee. But for those wanting their “latte” a little sweet, monk fruit powder works well without adding calories or sugar.

 

Pumpkin Spice Latte

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups organic brewed coffee or espresso
  • 1/4 Cup coconut cream (4 Tbs) – (I use Trader Joe’s organic coconut cream, which does not have any added thickeners)
  • 2 Tbs pumpkin puree (I use Trader Joe’s organic pumpkin puree)
  • 1/4 – 1/2 Tsp pumpkin pie spice (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 Tsp vanilla extract
  • Optional: 1/8 Tsp pure monk fruit powder (luo han guo) – (I have used Pure Monk from Julian Bakery)

 

Preparation:

  1. Combine all ingredients and blend with stick blender until frothy
  2. If you want to get fancy, top off with a dollop of coconut cream and garnish with a pinch of pumpkin pie spice
