Charlie’s Butter:

Charlie’s Butter is a collection of delectable artisan pasture-fed butters made from only the finest ingredients. It all starts with butter from a small herd of cows that graze on the lush California coastal grasses. Wholesome organic spices and herbs are then combined with the butter, culminating in an extraordinary flavor experience. FullSizeRender-23.jpg

Charlie’s Butter is Grass-fed butter, also known as pasture butter, is made from the milk from cows that only feed on natural grass vice a grain-based diet.  The milk of grass-fed cows is superior to that of grain fed cows because there is not the typically associated use of antibiotics and growth hormones. FullSizeRender-28.jpgFullSizeRender-26.jpg

Health benefits of grass-fed butter include: A naturally occurring fatty acid called Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) and a balance of Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids. Compared to regular butter, grass-fed butter has less Omega-6 and more Omega-3, which is important because most people are already eating way too many Omega-6 fatty acids in their daily diets. Nutrient dense in vitamins such as A, D, E, K & K2.  K2 is great for bone strength and is also beneficial in the bone development of children.FullSizeRender-31.jpg

Suggestions, Substitutions, Tips & Tricks:

  • You can add sugar to the egg mixture and serve up some whip cream.

Homemade french toast is just as delicious as restaruant french toast, but just half of the calories!

Salad Power

Now that it’s officially summer, SaladPower is the perfect drink to cool me down! Not only is it delicious, SaladPower is such a healthy alternative to other competitor’s drinks.FullSizeRender-25.jpg

SaladPower is the healthier juice. Traditional juices in local grocery stores are loaded with calories, sugar and funky sounding added ingredients. Then the rise of the new, trendy juice craze – these juices claimed to be healthier than the traditional guys. However, these new “healthy” juices still played the same old tricks. They would show you a “green juice” and say its super healthy for you because of all the greens in it. However, most green juices are loaded with sugary fruit juice like apple or orange juice and only have a few drops of kale to make them turn green. They’re low in vitamins and high in sugar & calories.

SaladPower puts their superfood veggie blend first, their juices are packed with nutrients and much lower in sugar and calories than the competitors. All of their produce is handpicked, sustainably sourced and 100% Non-GMO certified.

Rawxies

So proud to announce that I am now an ambassador of Rawxies!

Rawxies are an indulgent, nutritious, low calorie heart bar. Great for snacking! Rawxies can be enjoyed anytime of the day; breakfast, mid-morning snack, or dessert! They have a variety of flavor so it’s hard to get tired of their taste! With 130 Calories or less, Rawxies cookies were created for healthy snacking on-the-go.FullSizeRender.jpg

Rawxies are considered a pre-digested food, because they are not heated above 105 degrees. Heating food above this point kills its natural enzymes. Enzymes are what our body produces to break down certain foods. However, if the food is ‘living’, the body does not need to produce enzymes and therefore the food can digest itself. Predigested foods (those that are not heated above 105 degrees) are easily digested by the body and are a great option for anyone suffering from digestive disorders.

Its really hard to beat how amazing Rawxies are. Their crunch is

Baingan Bharta – Punjabi Eggplant

Happy Wednesday all!

Today I will be sharing my recipe on Baingan Bharta, which is roasted mashed eggplants cooked with onions, tomatoes, chillies, and ginger. This delicious roasted mashed eggplant dish is one of the most comforting things to eat along with warm rotis. The mouthwatering smoky flavor that comes from charring the eggplant is what makes this dish so amazing. You can even roast them over coal which brings them to another level! Let’s get started!

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium eggplants
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Red cayenne pepper
  • Garam Masala
  • Turmeric

Directions:

  1. Wash, pat dry and prick eggplants. Roast them over open flame until the skin starts peeling off and eggplants start to shrink. Continue on all sides until the skin browns. Let them cool in a bowl of water.IMG_0084.JPGIMG_0085.JPGIMG_0086.JPG
  2. Meanwhile, chop the tomato and pulse until smooth or chop finely and set aside.
  3. Remove eggplant skin and mash the pulp.
