Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl

This Whole30 and paleo Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl is low in sugar, packed with gut healing nutrients, and so thick and yummy. 

Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl

I know what you are thinking. Bone broth in a smoothie?? What in the actual eff…

I know, I know. But you gotta have some trust because this smoothie bowl is seriously delicious and you cannot taste the bone broth at all.

With all the holiday stress and treats over the past few weeks, my gut is in need of some quality nutrients and healing so I’ve been trying to incorporate as much bone broth into my diet as possible. While this can mean drinking it straight up or incorporating them into soup recipes, I decided to get a bit more creative by making this Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl.

Not only is this Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl full of nourishing nutrients from the bone broth, both turmeric and ginger are anti-inflammatory and are known superfoods that soothe digestion and immune boosters.

Best of all, this recipe is sweetened and thickened with a cooked sweet potato and I did not find that I needed to add any additional sweeteners, making it Whole30 and sugar detox friendly. However, if you are looking for a bit more sweetness, you can add some honey.

If you are looking to switch up your breakfast routine with a healthy and delicious smoothie, I hope you give this recipe a try. Have fun customizing with your favorite toppings as well. I sprinkled in some frozen blueberries, toasted coconut chips, sliced almonds, and some almond butter, and it was dang tasty!

Turmeric Garlic Pan Fried Lamb Chops

If you are looking to feed a group with a quick recipe, these paleo and Whole30 Turmeric Garlic Pan Fried Lamb Chops are easy to make and so juicy and delicious!

Turmeric Garlic Pan Fried Lamb Chops

Lamb is one of my favorite meats, especially for special occasions and over the holidays. For some reason, it just seems so fancy and indulgent, but it’s actually one of the easiest meats to cook. Because lamb is so rich and flavorful, it’s hard overcook and you can cook it pretty darn quickly in the pan or the grill.

I made these Turmeric Garlic Pan Fried Lamb Chops a few months ago for my parents without following any kind of recipe. It was so good that I decided to make it again, this time measuring the ingredients so I can share it with you all. I’m thinking this dish will be on regular rotation in our house because the husband couldn’t stop raving about it.

The longest step in this recipe is the marinating part, and then all you have to is pan fry the lamb chops for 3-4 minutes per side. It’s such an easy breezy recipe but the end result is so juicy and tender. The turmeric and the garlic add such a great flavor to this dish, and they are a delicious combo along with the lemon.

The next time you need to impress a group with a yummy meal, I hope you give these Turmeric Garlic Pan Fried Lamb Chops a try. I promise, you won’t regret it and you’ll have plenty of time leftover to mingle with your guests and cook some delicious sides!

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!
