popsicles

What better treat on a hot summer day than an ice-cold popsicle!  Here I have two different flavors. The first is a fresh and tangy Creamy Berry & Lemon combo.  The second is “PBBJ,” a play on everyone’s favorite PB&J, with an extra “B” for a twist!  Dr. Tara’s passion is to inspire and empower others to experience the joy and richness of life.  She embraces a holistic definition of health & wellness with a focus on lifestyle factors.

Baoballz

baoballz

As much as it drives me crazy, kids seem to get a kick out of things that are spelled wrong. Is it rebellion? Freedom from parental oversight? Not sure. What I do know is that all my son’s beloved graphic novels have at least one ‘z’ where an ‘s’ should be. So, in that spirit, here is a recipe for Baoballz, with ‘z’. They use my son’s favorite form of social currency, Baobites (I swear, he uses them to trade…

rosemary

Celebrate summer barbecues with veggies, infused with rosemary and drizzled with a citrusy Italian dressing. This simple sauce puts a healthy twist on classic Italian flavors with sweet orange in place of vinegar and Udo’s Oil in place of a commercial variety grain oil. The result is mellower than the typical store-bought variety and significantly healthier. We enjoyed it paired with grilled summer veggies and rosemary. With such simple everyday ingredients, you can easily use it to dress everyday salads on short notice. It’s an…

Sunburn ‘Sicles: Red Beet Ice Pops

August 1, 2019
ice pops

For the kids and the kids at heart, try this electrolyte replenishing, oxygenating ice pop post-play. I’m fairly certain it’s well known that when we engage in physical activity, we lose important electrolyte minerals through sweat and exertion. To restore that fluid balance and help our muscles recover from exercise, beverages that contain these electrolytes are extremely important. Where do we get these electrolytes if not from Gatorade? Of course, filtered water should contain trace minerals that allow us to…

frozen yogurt

Frozen yogurt bark is a nutritious and delicious family-friendly summer treat. It’s super simple to prepare and can be made with dairy or non-dairy yogurt and your choice of toppings. I made my frozen yogurt bark a pretty pink using my favorite Salus Red Beet Crystals. It was a hit with my whole family! I generally recommend using a higher fat yogurt (I use anything from 2% to 8%) so your dessert is creamy and luscious instead of icy. I also like…
