Bulletproof Mint Hot Chocolate



Have you heard of bulletproof coffee? It is the process of using fats such as butter or coconut oil over milk or cream in coffee. It is done by blending the coffee with the fats to emulsify it into a drink that resembles coffee with cream (and it is delicious!). I'm not as big coffee drinker, but I love me some tea and hot chocolate. So today I am sharing my recipe for 'bulletproof' hot chocolate.

Root Veggie and Beef Stew (AIP)



A hot bowl of this stew is the perfect meal for a cold January day. This recipe was inspired by a stew my mom often cooks for family dinners. My version contains no grains, legumes, or nightshades so it is suitable for those following paleo, traditional diets, and autoimmune protocol (AIP). A great way to add some extra nutrients to your diet after the stress of the holidays!

It can be extremely confusing when trying to figure out which supplements to take. I'll admit it; up until I started working in a health food store I had no idea just how many supplements were out there and where to even start learning about them.

The number one thing to know about supplementation is that eating real food is always the best way to obtain your nutrients. Why is this? Read on for the answer to all these questions and more!
