Paleo Keto Almond Joy Chia Seed Pudding

I was so excited to receive a review copy of Craveable Keto Cookbook by my fellow blogger Kyndra from Peace, Love, and Low Carb. While I’m not keto, I do tend to eat low carb because my body feels best eating this way, so I couldn’t wait to dig into her amazing low carb recipes.

What I found was SO MUCH MORE. Not only is this cookbook filled with 145 delicious recipes, the other half of the book is jam packed with incredible resources about the ketogenic diet, Kyndra’s inspiring weight loss journey, 5 different weekly meal plans, as well as guides to snacking and navigating alcohol, how to stock your keto kitchen, and other helpful tips and tricks on transitioning to a low carb lifestyle. I couldn’t believe the amount of work and heart that Kyndra clearly poured into this book.

Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Chocolate Chia Pudding

tumeric chocolate chia puddingThis past weekend, I was at the Wanderlust Festival in Lake Tahoe which was such a fun and amazing experience. I was actually there as one of the vendors working at a booth for most of the time, but it was so great to have the beautiful mountains as the backdrop and I had some free time to attend a yoga class, see musical acts, and partake in festival activities.

However, my body is definitely feeling the lack of sleep, not eating healthy the entire time, and just the stress of being on my feet for 4 days straight. I’m taking it easy this week by resting, getting a massage, and cuddling with my dogs.

Whenever I’m feeling a bit drained, I pay special attention to how I’m fueling my body. One of the top anti-inflammatory foods I like to incorporate is turmeric. It’s a very strong antioxidant and helps so much in healing the body in times of low immunity and stress.

It’s also an added bonus that this filling snack satisfies my chocolate cravings without the sugar. You can add honey to this recipe, but I actually like it without any sweeteners and topping it with some fruit instead.

Also, if you are doing a sugar detox like the RESTART® program, you can enjoy this recipe as well. Just make sure you don’t add honey and to use low sugar fruits like berries or an unripened banana!

Ginger Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding

Ginger Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding

I had a nice and relaxing long weekend of doing almost absolutely nothing and it was wonderful. Labor Day is always bittersweet for me because it signals the end of summer and I don’t want to accept that. I think the weather feels the same way and wants to rebel because it’s supposed to go up to 96 degrees today in Marin County. I don’t think it’s even gotten that hot this entire summer. As someone who is slightly insane and loves the hot, sweaty weather, I don’t hate it at all. After all, the #1 reason why I moved to California is to avoid winters.

But Fall has some upsides. Well, maybe 2. The leaves turning color and pumpkin. That’s it. Those are the only 2 good things about Fall. Agree to disagree. There was a point in my life when I used to buy 5 cans of pumpkin at a time and finish them all in a week. I clearly had a problem. I have recovered from that phase but I still love pumpkin dearly. And now that it’s September, I think it’s okay for me to post a pumpkin recipe (not that I think that’s it’s ever too early).

This chia pudding tastes just like pumpkin pie filling, and it’s great for breakfast or as a snack. The combination of chia seeds and pumpkin is a nutritional powerhouse loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, key vitamins and minerals, and antioxidants. I love the addition of ginger to anything, but you can omit and reduce the amount if you are not into that. Top with nuts, seeds, or dried fruits for a bit of that crunch factor!Ginger Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding
