Vital Proteins Peppermint Power Smoothie + Giveaway

Peppermint Power Smoothie from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

Something I’ve been researching and working on very hard this past year has been to restore my gut health. Outside of taking pre- and probiotics and sipping homemade bone broth, one of the easiest additions to the gut health department has been adding collagen protein to various recipes, one of which I’m sharing today. When it… [Continue Reading]

Carrot Cake Muffins with TigerNut Flour + Giveaway

Carrot Cake Muffins with TigerNut Milk from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

I feel like one of the hottest alternative health food trends for this year so far has been the emergence of the tigernut. I was so intrigued by this product when I first read about it on the Empowered Sustenance blog and bought a few bags from Amazon.com (I’ve recently added them to my store). I started… [Continue Reading]

Chocolate Cauli Oatmeal

Chocolate Cauliflower Oatmeal from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

This recipe for Chocolate Cauliflower Oatmeal falls into that category of weird-sounding foods that somehow work. Honestly, I know a sweet dish using cauliflower just sounds wrong, but I promise you that it’s really good! <—side note: if this kind of thing appeals to you, you should see this “Strange But Good” Pinterest board. I’m not… [Continue Reading]

#RaiseHealth Coconut Pulp Cookies + Giveaway

Raise Health Coconut Pulp Cookies from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

Vanilla Coconut Beverage (Dairy-Free, Date-Sweetened)

Vanilla Coconut Beverage (dairy-free, date-sweetened) featured on Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

I’ve been experimenting with making different types of non-dairy milks lately. My long-term fave has been Homemade Unsweetened Almond Milk using raw almonds, but, as it is with everything in life, it’s good to get some variety. One of the easiest alternatives I’ve made so far is Coconut Milk Beverage which is essentially water blended with… [Continue Reading]

Turmeric Bison & Collards

Turmeric Bison & Collard Greens from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

I’ve mentioned a few times the incorporation of bison meat into my diet since moving away from a plant-based approach last May. Besides doing the research (see my recommended reading list here) and feeling convinced that adding meat back into my diet was positive for my health overall, I’ve made it a priority to find sources… [Continue Reading]

Turmeric Roasted Sprouts

Turmeric Roasted Sprouts from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

Today is December 29th which means: 1. we all (hopefully) survived the holidays, although some events may require therapy (that’s a joke…kind of) and 2. we’re close enough to New Year’s Day that while it may be tempting to think about Resolutions that may involve cutting back on rich food, I’m moving very slowly in that… [Continue Reading]

Gluten-Free Blueberry Pancakes

Gluten-free blueberry pancakes from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

Someone had a hankering for blueberry pancakes this weekend: Although my husband doesn’t have to be as strict as I do about being gluten-free, I do try to go that route whenever I bake. I’ve tested a lot of gluten-free pancake mixes, but this one from Vitacost.com is my absolute favorite: The mix ingredients consist… [Continue Reading]
