Top 10 Must Haves for a Healthy Kitchen

Herbal Wisdom, RecipesWild Coyotea1 Comment

Here are my Top 10 for a healthy kitchen! I recommend having them on hand at all times to incorporate into your daily practices of nourishment! 

 

Lemons

I add lemon juice to hot water in the morning to flush my system.  Also great for dressings or whenever you need a little tang! Even though they seem acidic, lemon juice actually helps alkalize your body. 


Raw Hemp Seeds

One of the most easily digestible vegan proteins! I add it to smoothies, salads, rice bowls, popcorn- everything!

Coconut Oil

Great high heat cooking oil, good for your skin, brain, heart, tastes great! I also add it to my pup’s food for a shiny coat.

Garlic

Immune booster!

Ginger

Warming, anti-inflammatory.  I use finely chopped ginger with my lemon water, it makes a great soothing herbal tonic.

Real Salt

Don’t mess with processed salt. Get the kind that still has its natural minerals

Dark leafy Greens

Because, duh. (Chlorophyll. Fiber. Vitamin A.)

Nut Butter

Protein! I love almond butter.  If you are into the peanut variety, make sure it’s organic. Non-organic peanuts are known to have TONS of chemicals.

Chocolate

Dark Chocolate.  Antioxidants. Vitamins. Essential Fatty Acids.

 


Raw Honey

Anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties!  Delicious.  I use raw honey in my herbal teas and with hot lemon ginger tonic!

 

Opulent + Spicy Cacao Elixer - VEGAN!

This is insanely easy to make. Takes 5 minutes!  

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups coconut or almond milk - find my almond milk recipe here. I actually use coconut milk from the can! It's the creamiest and most delicious for this recipe. Plus, the fat from coconut is incredibly healthy and satisfying.  
  • 3 Tablespoons Raw Cacao 
  • 2 Tablespoons Raw Honey
  • Dash Cinnamon
  • Dash Turmeric
  • Dash Cayenne
  • Sprinkle sea salt

In a saucepan on medium heat, add all ingredients and stir until creamy.


YUM! Let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions.
