Homemade hemp milk



I am so excited I finally found a homemade hemp milk recipe to try.

As I said before I can have any dairy for now but slowly my nutritionist will add some of it back in a couple months. When I first quit dairy I started drink almond drink instead and I found out I am intolerante to almonds too. My doctor told me to try hemp milk and I hated it maybe for one week after that I felt in love with hemp.

Hemp milk is very expensive I pay around $5 per box that

I drink in a week and half. This recipe I made the same amount is in the box for around $2 and is way healthier and better taste.

The recipe I found on the detoxinista website.


Homemade Hemp Milk
makes 4 cups


4 cups filtered water
1/2 cup hemp hearts
4 Medjool dates
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Blend all together on high speed blender and strain with a bag.



I loved the taste even my husband tried and liked it.

Now time to try my healthy hot chocolate with hemp milk yummy.


Veggies noodles




My friend told me about this little tool he got at Bartells for 14,99 that makes veggies noodles. I got very excited about and ran to the store to buy one for myself. It is very easy to use i just put zucchini and yellow squash inside twist around and voila it makes delicious noodles.


I tried with carrots also and worked great. I made the veggies noodles and some homemade tomato sauce with some grilled chicken and lunch was ready.

Amazing thing about it is that taste almost like noodles but it isn’t and also is very healthy. If you don’t have it and still wants to have veggies noodle you can use a potato peel thing. I used before. Or cut into little pieces.





You can also use it on cucumber to make salads. Yummy and healthy. Eat pasta without feeling guilty.

Rutabaga recipe


Other day I bought a rutabaga just because I saw it in the supermarket and I never ate before so I decided to buy one. I stared at it for 3 days and I didn’t know what to do with it. On the fourth day I decided to bake it and it was really good. From now on I am using it as a substitute for potatoes on my recipes, because it taste a bit like potato.

Rutabaga is a root vegetable that originated as a cross between the cabbage and the turnip. Rutabagas are an excellent source of vitamin C, also contain fibers, and a good source of potassium, manganese, and thiamin.

Okay, going back to what I was saying before, I shopped my rutabaga into cute little cubes and  with carrots, olive oil, pepper and pink salt and baked for 35 minutes or until it was soft.



It turned out great and it is now one of my favorites.



I am challenging myself to try two different vegetable per week. Last week I tried rutabaga and turnip. So far I liked both.

Hope you all have a excellent week. 🙂

Healthy baked eggplant



Hello there,

Today the recipe is super simple. I sliced a eggplant and dip in egg white and quinoa flakes. I baked it around 20 minutes or so on 400F.

You can also add pink salt and pepper but I forgot add on mine. If you want it crunch just bake longer. It is a very light healthy side dish for dinner or you can eat with hummus or some other dip. I just ate itself because I try keep my meals very simple.


Hope you enjoy it as I did.
