Rebecca Katz’s Magic Mineral Broth

The Purple Almond

Hello everyone! I know I promised that I’d be back today, however, I had something come up, which may take up the rest of this week. So, I decided to repost one of my favorite recipes. This broth is just the thing for this time of year. If you’ve been feeling a bit under the weather, if you’ve have the flu or a cold, this broth is just the thing for you.

With each course at our school, we prepare a “recipe of the course”. This recipe from Rebecca Katz was the very first recipe we prepared. It’s divine and SUPER HEALTHY! I first posted this recipe a year ago.

So, I’ll be taking the remainder of the week off from my normal posts. If I have time, I’ll be posting my review of Sun Basket Meal Delivery Service. Also coming up are Blue Apron, as well as Martha &…

Braised Beef Chilli con Carne

A food and lifestyle blog.

Now Christmas is over, I (and the rest of the nation), am dying to eat something ‘normal’. First world problem right? Christmas day was wonderful, but again, I had so much champagne that it got to a point where I couldn’t face drinking anymore – that’s when you know your life is actually pretty good! But today, I had some braising beef that needed using and instead of making a stew, I decided to make a chilli with it. Today was grey, cold and snowy so I wanted to make something tasty and warming – like a lot of my dishes lately! Chilli con Carne isn’t something I eat or make regularly but it turned out to be delicious and the beef was so succulent and tender, it is something I will definitely be making again.

It didn’t take long to prep and once it was all in the pot…

Back To Skinny Taste

Danny

This image I use in some of my posts was from 2014 when I weighed approximately 180 lbs.  Since then I have yo-yoed between 185-193 and I can definitely feel the difference in my body.  So Evelina and I are back on using Skinny Taste recipes and healthier snacks.  The honest truth is I have been so lazy and have not exercised in over a year.  It’s actually a bit embarrassing to admit it out loud.

Last night Evelina made a bow tie pasta lasagna with ground chicken and it was delicious.  I’m excited about getting the weight off and getting stronger.  Eating better combined with the Insanity program will work wonders for me; it’s just hard!

At any rate, I highly recommend any of the Skinny Taste books and most of the recipes are easy to find online.  She has vegetarian, Vegan and meat-based options, all of which are delicious.

An Archive of Meditations – The Purple Almond Year in Review

The Purple Almond

I began my Meditation Monday blog series on December 19, 2016. One year on, I have covered the gambit of meditation and relaxation techniques. I began with Yoga, and have included everything from Qi Gong to chair yoga and candle gazing to stone stacking. Whether you’re a fitness fanatic, or hate to exercise (like me!) there’s something for everyone.

Many of you may wonder why I focus so heavily on meditation and motivation, despite being a nutrition site. As someone who is studying holistic nutrition, I learned early on that food is only part of the equation when it comes to complete, whole body health. A body under constant stress is an unhealthy body, even if you eat in a super healthy way. Yes, all of that healthy food does help, but the stress still takes a toll on you. That’s why I include so many meditation and motivational posts…

10 Recipes to Transform Your Leftovers

The Purple Almond

Hello everyone…I just wanted to share my Thanksgiving leftovers list from 1 year ago. This is the first “recipe” list I ever did. I hope you enjoy it.

What do you like to make

with your left overs?

God bless…Namaste!


Ok, by now…if you have any turkey left…you are quite tired of it. That being said, I think it goes without saying, that these recipes aren’t just for leftover turkey. One of my kitchen rules, “use what you have on hand.” If you have leftover chicken, even rotisserie chicken from the store,  pork or perhaps leftover Sunday roast, feel free to swap it out. If you’re vegetarian, tofu or beans would work. Just FYI, if you swap out the turkey, in favor of beef, use beef broth in the recipes that call for broth, or veggie broth for tofu/beans.

I searched the web and tried to find something for everyone. I had…

Black Friday Deals and Steals

RAFA FARIHAH

Thanksgiving is coming up and as much as I’m looking forward to cooking up a feast for my family, I’m especially excited about the Black Friday shopping. There are so many trends I’ve been eying at Zara, Forever 21, and more. Although many stores mark up their items before adding on a “holiday discount,” some sales are just too good to pass up.

Boohoo

 As if their clothes aren’t cheap enough, Boohoo is offering 60% off its entire store on Black Friday. You can get most of the tops, dresses, and jackets for $10 or less. Definitely a steal!

Shein

Shein is one of my favorite online stores. Starting Thanksgiving Day, Shein is offering 60% off its entire store, along with a BOGO 99% off deal for some items. Make sure to snag their tops and sweaters for $5-$10!

10% off if you order using a new email

$10 off…
