Do you have any mint lovers in your life? I absolutely love mint and I can never get enough of it. It is to the point I have started to grow it in my garden, just so that I can have some fresh and accessible whenever I need it! I clearly knew I needed to share my dairy free mint chocolate chip ice cream recipe so that you too could enjoy some healthy mint in your life!
Finding a great dairy free ice cream that does not taste overwhelmingly like pureed coconut with a lacking flavor profile of anything else can be a treasure hunt if you allow it to be! We ended up saying “No thanks!” to that headache this summer and decided to make our own ice cream!
I crave mint the most during the summer time. Mint is known for its “cooling and soothing” health properties and benefits. This herb has so many more benefits than most people are aware of traditionally. Making a healthy sweet treat, like this dairy free mint chocolate chip ice cream, can do just the trick of cooling and soothing symptoms in your life!
If you have ever been backpacking for a couple of days, one thing you may have noticed is how much weight and room food can take up in your pack. This variable is dependent upon the length of your trip (or how comfortable you want to be on your trip). For those who are keto backpacking, they notice a huge difference in their pack weight and how they feel.
Food is the literal energy you have in order to complete your trip. If you are lacking the energy to get to your destination, or you are just exhausted after every single trip you do, then you might want to take a look at your food.
There is a good chance you have heard of MCT Oil, but what does “MCT” really mean? Well, it stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides, which is a form of saturated fatty acid that has quite a few health benefits, including improving the gut microbiome and providing an easy energy source. These are just a few of the MCT Oil benefits that we can expect to see.
MCTs are naturally found in quite a few foods, such as coconut oil and butter. For many people on a standard Western Diet, not enough natural MCTs are found in the diet. This is mainly because of the anti-fat fad that started back in the 1950’s. Now, research is showing that these saturated fats are needed in the diet to improve overall health.
It is important that we get some saturated fats into our diet every single day. MCTs and other healthy fats that can be found in foods like grass-fed butter and coconuts are much easier to digest than long-chain fatty acids.
At times while on the Keto Diet, you may come across a meal or two that isn’t fully “keto compliant”. Meals that are higher in carbohydrates tend to kick the body out of ketosis and turns to burning off the excess sugar first.
If you have been on the keto diet for awhile, then your body can pop right back into ketosis relatively quickly. But if you want a quick way to get those ketones flowing through your body, then utilizing low carb smoothies such as the Keto Chocolate Sea Salt Smoothie can be really effective.
Using products containing Exogenous Ketones can be a great way to switch the body back into a fat-burning state. Adding them into low carb smoothies, which are blended and help with initial stages of digestion, is a great way to get these ketones into your body fast!
If you’re anything like me, you love to have snacks accessible to eat. Not just any snacks, but snacks you can take on the go and know will fill you up and leave your tummy satisfied. Crackers are one of …
During the fall, pumpkin spice everything seems to make their rounds through the stores- pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin spice cookies, pumpkin spice brownies, and the list goes on and on. Overall, I am not a huge fan of the taste of pumpkin, but when it comes to Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate, I actually enjoy it quite a bit!
