20 Smoothies for Kids!

There are few things as nutrient dense as a smoothie. The ingredient options are endless and it’s easy to slip in nutrient boosters for added nourishment. Smoothies for kids can get a little tricky though. I don’t know about your kids, but mine won’t...

Healing Apple Cider (gluten-free, dairy-free)

It’s fall!!!  This is big news for those of us in California.  This morning I almost needed a hat.  Woot!  I hear it’s supposed to be 80-90 degrees again tomorrow but let’s forget about that for the moment.  I almost wore a hat this morning everyone,...

Orange Creamsicle Smoothie

At both my children’s schools there are several viruses (and one a dreaded stomach bug) making the rounds.  UGH.  Viruses are a part of life, especially with kids.  But with Halloween coming up this weekend and a road trip to San Francisco for the Kula Mama...

Healthy Hot Chocolate with Protein and Superfood Boosters!

If there’s one thing that reminds my kids of fall (which let’s be real…fall just gets them closer to Christmas, the real goal!) it’s hot chocolate.  Whenever my son thinks up a “treat” for himself, it usually involves hot chocolate...

How to Make Bone Broth with EXTRA Minerals

My grandma called it stock.  Some people call it broth.  No matter what you call it, homemade bone broth is a nutritional powerhouse and to date I haven’t found any condition it won’t help.  Homemade broth, made with bones in particular, is the first thing I make when...

Apple Water Kefir

I know I sound like a broken record when I write about how important healthy gut flora is to a thriving immune system. But the truth is, if our digestive tract isn’t happy, then nobody’s happy!  With over 80% of the immune system in the gut, probiotics are...

15 Healthy Morning Drink Recipes to SUPER Charge Your Day!

I start thinking about my healthy cup of coffee about 10 seconds after I wake up.  Coffee addiction, anyone?  Maybe.  I love the ritual of a warm cup of Joe first thing in the morning.  My tummy likes something warm, and slowing down to enjoy my coffee helps me center...

How to Make a Healthy Cup of Coffee

Many readers might be surprised to hear that I drink coffee every morning.  It’s true.  I love everything about coffee…from the aroma of the brewing pot to the ritual of taking my first sip….I LOVE COFFEE.  However, what I don’t always love is the blood sugar spike...

Health Benefits of Bone Broth

I’ve been working on my holistic first aid kit for a few years now and it’s seen me through some crazy cold and flu seasons.  I have several supplements, herbs and remedies that I come back to time and time again but my FAVORITE tool in my first aid kit is one you...

How to Make a Ginger Bug

Adding fermented foods to your child’s diet is a wonderful way to get healthy, gut-balancing flora into the digestive tract.  Fermented food and drink is cheaper than a probiotic supplement and is also more readily absorbed by the body.  The earlier kids are exposed...

Sweet Almond Milk (Dairy-free, Gluten-free)

One of the first differences we noticed when we arrived in Argentina is that people eat differently than we do at home.  Granted, that’s not hard to accomplish because our family eats differently than most everyone anyway, but I did immediately notice a lack of...

Kula Baby’s Favorite Milkshake

This “milkshake” is Kula Baby’s new favorite summer treat.  He thinks he’s getting some sort of chocolate-flavored ice cream and I’m in no hurry to tell him otherwise.  This smoothie is a perfect blend of protein and sweet.  It’s...
