You Won’t Believe What’s In Your Yogurt – And It’s Not On The Label!

The food industry has a reputation of taking incredibly healthy items and turning them into processed junk food and this is exactly what has happened to most yogurts available on the market. The Cornucopia Institute just came out with a very revealing report (an investigation that took 2 years!) about what’s in yogurt, and how giant food corporations, led by General Mills (Yoplait), Groupe Danone (Dannon), Walmart, and PepsiCo are saturating the market with less nutritious yogurt. Conventional yogurt usually comes from milk produced by cows that are confined and unable to graze in open pasture. They’re usually fed GMO grains, not grass. As the yogurt ferments, chemical defoamers are sometimes added. Then high doses of artificial sweeteners, sugar, or high fructose corn syrup are sometimes added too. That’s not all: colors, preservatives, and gut-harmful carrageenan can be dumped in. These practices alarm me, since yogurt has been such a healthy, longevity-promoting food for ages.

Healthy Pumpkin Pie With Coconut Whipped Cream

I love pumpkin pie! But I don’t love the traditional recipe that adds a ton of sugar and hormone-filled evaporated milk to the mix. My favorite part of this pumpkin pie recipe is the coconut milk! It adds a nice hint of sweetness without adding more sugar. I make this recipe every year and it’s a major hit with my family – thank goodness for that! I hope you enjoy it as much as they do.

Roasted Pumpkin Spice Nuts – A Healthy Pick-Me-Up

I used to get a 3pm slump everyday when I was eating a diet full of processed food. Now that I’ve changed my life with the information I uncovered about the food industry – my diet, my routine, and my health have transformed me to into person full of energy! I am always amazed at how I feel so much more energy now (a lot older), than I did then back when I was younger! Food is so powerful. 

However, some habits have not changed. I still like to enjoy a cup of tea after lunch with a small sweet treat. Sometimes it will be a piece of fruit, or a piece of organic dark chocolate. Lately, it’s been this recipe. I love pumpkin spice (with or without actual pumpkin – haha!) as long as the ingredients are clean and organic, so last week I thought wouldn’t it be nice to make some roasted pumpkin spiced nuts. They turned out absolutely fabulous and are really ADDICTIVE! The egg white coating creates a very crispy outer shell making this treat crunchy, sweet and salty – a delicious combination for a satisfying snack to enjoy with my afternoon tea. I love that it is full of healthy fats and protein too.
