Happy Monday, lovelies! 💛 I made a batch of these Paleo Vegan Banana Mini Muffins yesterday for my son’s hockey banquet. 🏆🥅🏒 They were a hit, so I thought I’d share the recipe with all of you! 🍌🍌🍌 . . You can find the recipe in the link in my bio @healthymadewell. https://realsimplegood.com/paleo-vegan-banana-bread/ NOTE: I added one heaping teaspoon of ground flaxseed meal and a generous sprinkle of @chasorganics True Cinnamon to the batter. I baked these at 350 for about 12 minutes. PS This recipe calls for coconut sugar, but if you use really ripe bananas, you could probably omit it or use 1/3 of the amount suggested. 👌 Enjoy! xo Laura . . #healthymadewell #paleo #vegan #chasorganics #paleovegan #bananamuffins #sharingiscaring #glutenfreeliving #grainfree #grainfreeeats #grainfreevegan #veganmuffins #realsimple #cookcl #bakeitforwardproject #lovetobake #bakeitvegan #whatceliacseat #thatsdarling #tcmlivingwell #muffin #muffintime #muffinlove #paleobaking #eatfreely
Happy Sunday morning, loves! ☀️☀️☀️ Today’s breakfast was inspired by some great health and wellness tips shared by my friend @rachels_nd ! To jumpstart my day, I made a @tradmedicinals roasted dandelion root tea with a squeeze of a 1/4 of a fresh lemon 🍋. Then, I made one of my favourite breakfasts... Broiled Grapefruit with Yogurt and Nuts. However, this time, I added a heaping teaspoon of ground flaxseed to my yogurt. To make the broiled grapefruit, I simply cut it in half, sprinkled it with @chasorganics True Cinnamon and broiled it at about 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes. While the grapefruit was cooking, I added a small handful of walnuts to a preheated skillet. I let them toast for a few minutes, and added just under a teaspoon of pure maple syrup. I stirred it up, and removed the skillet from the heat. I mixed about a 1/4 cup of @enjoyyoso unsweetened coconut yogurt with ground flaxseed. Lastly, I topped my grapefruit with the yogurt and walnuts. I have shared the link to Rachel’s tips in my insta story...Please take a minute to check them out! Sending you all so much love, Light, and gratitude! Laura xo ✨PS if you don’t like grapefruit, you can use an apple 🍏 instead! ✨ . . #healthymadewell #pinkgrapefruit #broiledgrapefruit #enjoyyoso #coconutyogurt #vegan #grainfree #glutenfree #breakfast #weekendvibes #grainfreeeats #mapleglazedwalnuts #realsimple #cookcl #gloobyfood #fruitandnuts #guthealth #vaughanmoms #woodbridge #foodporn #nomnom #traditionalmedicinals #springcleanse

Eggs In Purgatory with Zucchini, Leafy Greens and Capers 🍳 Sauté a small zucchini (thinly sliced) in some Evoo in an oven proof skillet over medium high heat. Sprinkle with a little Herbamare. After a few minutes, add in a handful of leafy greens (baby kale, baby spinach, chard). Add a few capers (just like a scant teaspoon). Allow the zucchini and the greens to soften. Add in a bit of homemade or store-bought tomato sauce (about 3/4-1 cup). Let this come to a simmer. Crack 3-4 whole eggs into the skillet (on top of the sauce and veggie mixture). Give the eggs about 5 minutes to cook through. I wanted a firmer yolk, so I topped my skillet with a lid, and turned the temperature to medium-low. Alternatively, you could place the entire skillet in the oven at 350 degrees for about 5 or so minutes. Garnish with some fresh parsley and season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy! Laura 🙏🏻💖✨ . . . #healthymadewell #mealprep #mealprepideas #eggs #food #healthyfood #healthyliving #cookCL #thenewhealthy #mealsinminutes #quickandeasymeals #grainfreebrunch #dinnermadeeasy #grainfree #glutenfree #dairyfree #vegetarian #healthyrecipes #eggsinpurgatory #realsimple #eggdishes #healthyweeknightdinner #eatrealfood #easyrecipes #feedfeed #busymomlife #momlife #eggsmart #grainfreeliving #glutenfreelifestyle

Wishing everyone a beautiful Sunday! ☀️ Spring is almost here. Although a thin layer of snow blanketed the rooftops and streets this morning, I heard the sound of birds chirping as I awoke, and the sun is shining brightly. 🐦🤗🌿 Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

When your teenage kids both have their own plans, and you and your hubs are free for a few hours...you go exploring, and end up acting like tourists in your own city! 🌃 Last minute plans make for the best adventures. Today, as we walked through Yorkville, the sun was shining, and the temperature was just right. ☀️☀️☀️ We visited some clothing stores, and then we stumbled upon @kupfertkim , which I quickly discovered just opened in Yorkville last week. Everything here is wheatless and meatless. I had a yummy turmeric latte, and I had it made with oat milk (which I had never tried before). It was so yummy. Being the Cookie Monster that I am, I also couldn’t resist trying the paleo cookie. It was scrumptious! ❤️ 🍪 💯 We went to a few more shops, and decided to visit @plantatoronto for dinner. I’ve been wanting to check it out for a long time...I know, I know! I’m a little late to the Planta Party! Lol! We both ordered the Planta Burger and fries...The service was great and the vegan food was yummy! 🌿 I am so grateful for this quality time with my hubs...it’s funny...you know...life can get so busy...you are running around doing everything for everyone else...it’s important to reconnect, as often as possible, and to just appreciate each other’s company. 💖 Today, for the first time, I finally felt as though Spring was in the air. And, I’m looking forward to more adventures! Where should we go next?! I’d love your recos! 🙏🏻 . . . #healthymadewell #afternoondate #dateafternoon #explore #the6ix #toronto #ontario #canada #veganfood #glutenfreefood #plantbased #feedfeed #veganrestaurants #wheatless #meatless #love #life #kupfertandkim #plantatoronto #yorkville #torontolife #blogto #restaurantsto #tastetoronto #toeats #placestogointoronto #visittoronto #discoverON #springisintheair #glutenfreeliving
Happy Monday, loves! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted here on IG. I’ve been trying to heal from a concussion. I sincerely appreciate everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to reach out to check and see if I was okay. Your text messages, DM’s, and phone calls truly warmed my heart, especially during this absolutely frigid and challenging last month and a half... I am beyond grateful for your concern, love, and kindness. 🙏🏻💖💕 I hope you are well, and I look forward to catching up with all of you. . . U N S T U C K Feeling stuck and frustrated Constantly searching for clarity Before taking action Worried that I need to find That perfect niche That million dollar idea That once-in-a-lifetime opportunity To succeed To make a difference To rise strong I now give myself permission To break free To let intuition be my guide To take small steps To play To experiment To relax To find pleasure in the little things, and To uncover what truly makes My soul happy It is okay to try new things To stumble To fail Life is full of new and exciting possibilities I am free To be my authentic self To explore the world Through a multitude of different lenses There is so much I have yet to learn and discover So many beautiful souls I have yet to encounter So many exhilarating experiences that await Just on the other side of fear I am open to all of this and so much more I am grateful for all the goodness in my life I am free I feel at ease All is well in my world I am exactly where I need to be In this moment, here and now, I am safe To become Unstuck . . ~Laura Stolf @healthymadewell . . . #healthymadewell #healing #backonthegram #writersofinstagram #writingismytherapy #onwardandupward #affirmation #mantra #youcanhealyourlife #trusttheuniverse #healingthroughwriting #writetoheal #journaling #poetry #expression #quotes #quoteoftheday #quotesdaily #unstuck #spiritjunkie #autoimmunewarrior #concussionrecovery
It looks, and especially feels, as though winter has officially arrived here in our neck of the woods. ⛄️❄️💨 What’s your favourite drink to sip when the temps drop way below zero? Around here, hot chocolate is the most requested. ☕️ Enter... @puricawellness Zensations Evening Calm. This organic blend of red reishi and the ayurvedic herb ashwagandha with cacao is a perfect combination for a calm mind and body. You can simply add 1 tsp to 50 ml of hot water, and drink it like a shot of espresso. Tonight, I chose to blend it in my @vitamix with some hot water, unsweetened almond milk, a bit of @dandyblend , some cinnamon, and a splash of pure maple syrup. It’s the most delish pre-bedtime elixir. Happy Smonday, loves! 🤗 Sweet dreams. . #healthymadewell #puricawellness #Zensations #EveningCalm #VistaMagCanada #VistaAmbassador #myvitamix #glutenfree #vegan #organic #nongmo #bedtimeelixir #elixir #supplementsunday
Mmmmm —- have you ever tried broiled grapefruit? 💚 #Repost @healthymadewell ・・・ Dreaming of this coconut yogurt and pink grapefruit combo I made last week. 💗💗💗 I was inspired to broil my grapefruit after seeing Ashleigh’s (@thesoulfulsprout ) post. She broiled a grapefruit and then topped it with cinnamon. FYI...I tried it, and it was delish. 👍 The next week, I broiled another grapefruit, and topped it with @chasorganics cinnamon, @enjoyyoso unsweetened coconut yogurt mixed with some @theculturedcoconut kefir, @manitobaharvest hemp hearts, and some homemade maple glazed walnuts. OMG! Sooooo yummy! I want to make another one, but I need to pick up some ingredients. So, I’m off to @naturescanada in Woodbridge this morning. And guess what? My friend Linda from @theculturedcoconut has flown in from Nova Scotia to demo her amazing probiotic coconut kefir today! Can’t wait to see her! Will you be visiting @naturescanada today? If so, take a minute to visit @theculturedcoconut booth, and say hi to Linda. Wishing you all a beautiful Saturday! 🤗 With love, light, and gratitude always...

Oh my JOY! I finally got a minute to make @joyoushealth ’s famous galette! I had to make a few substitutions based on what I had on hand. But, I’m happy to report it turned out delicious and flaky!!! Substitutions-I used chilled coconut oil instead of butter. I used arrowroot flour instead of tapioca. I also used 2 eggs instead of one in my dough. I reduced the cooking time to 25 minutes. My galette filling contains a bit of garlic and basil pizza sauce, shallots, mushrooms, black olives, zucchini, kale and vegan mozzarella. For the original recipe, please click the link in my bio @healthymadewell. https://www.joyoushealth.com/27231-blog-rustic-kale-sundried-tomato-galette . . . . Fun fact: Galette from the Norman word gale meaning flat cake is a term used in French cuisine to designate various types of flat round or freeform crusty cakes, or, in the case of a Breton galette, a pancake made with buckwheat flour usually with a savoury filling. . . . #healthymadewell #galette #joyoushealth #keepitsimple #buzzfeedtasty #foodphotography #healthyeats #healing #grainfreeliving #realsimple #gfgalettes #glutenfree #glutenfreelifestyle #grainfreeeats #grainfreelife #galettemaison #grainfree #dairyfree #meatlessmonday #vegetarianrecipes #onmyplate #cookcl #thenewhealthy #easymeals #simpledinner #bonappetit #emborg #vegancheese

Pasta night should be simple...right?! 🍝 This pasta can be ready in minutes. All you need is your fav pasta or grain-free noodles (I used zucchini noodles), some raw shrimp, evoo, a shallot, a clove of garlic, hot peppers in oil or red pepper flakes, a handful of baby spinach, a couple of oyster mushrooms, and some Herbamare and black pepper. In a large pan, on medium-high heat, sauté the finely chopped shallot and one clove of garlic, minced, in a few drizzles of evoo. Cook for about a minute, then add a teaspoon of hot peppers in oil (or a bit less, if you like things less spicy) and few sliced oyster mushrooms. Cook for a few more minutes. Add a cup of raw shrimp, peeled and deveined. Sauté for a few more minutes, just until fully cooked. Remove this mixture from the pan and place it in a bowl. Add a bit more evoo to your pan. Add zucchini noodles (about 3-4 small zucchini). Stir for a few minutes. Add veggie/shrimp mixture back into the pan, plus a generous handful of fresh baby spinach. Combine all ingredients, until the spinach has wilted. Add Herbamare/salt and pepper to taste. Top with a sprinkle of hemp hearts. Bon appétit! . . . . #healthymadewell #zucchininoodles #keepitsimple #buzzfeedtasty #foodphotography #healthyeats #healing #grainfreeliving #realsimple #pastalovers #glutenfree #lowcarb #lowcarbrecipes #glutenfreelifestyle #grainfreeeats #grainfreelife #zoodles #grainfree #dairyfree #paleo #spiralizer #onmyplate #cookcl #thenewhealthy #easymeals #simpledinner #mhhempambassador #ad #bonappetit #onepanmeals

Good afternoon my beautiful family and friends! 🤗 I hope everyone is having a wonderful week thus far—celebrating life, enjoying some much needed holidays/time off, and/or indulging in yummy food and drink surrounded by loved ones....❤️ I just wanted to thank you for all of your love, kindness, and support over the past year! I can’t even begin to express how grateful I am for each and every one of you. 🙏🏻 To show my appreciation, I have partnered with one of my favourite brands @bioraw ! I have been a fan of Bioraw since day one. They make the most hearty, nutrient-dense, and delicious salads. Last week, amidst all the prep leading up to Christmas, their salads literally saved my life. I knew that in spite of all the craziness, I would have a delicious lunch every single day. We even had some salads for dinner...like the vegan dish I created in the pics I posted above! ☺️ I love the versatility of Bioraw salads. You can eat them as they are, or you can top them with additional protein or an avocado, and even sauté/stir fry them! Each salad comes with a delicious @michellesrawfoodz salad dressing that compliments the salad. I love to add the juice of a lemon or some ACV to mine as well! 🥗🥗🥗 Starting today through December 30th, Bioraw is having a RAWDLICIOUS BOXING DAY SALE! It is their biggest sale EVER! Simply use the code BOXINGDAY25 to save 25% of all orders for 2019. Check out the link in my bio @healthymadewell. There are no limitations on the number of times you can order using this code.

Has anyone else reached the point where they are ready to wrap themselves up and put “themselves” under the Christmas tree?!

Christmas came early...🎁🎅🏼🌲 Thank you so much @saltgourmetfoods for sharing these delicious @_nobo_ treats with me via @mumsie_00 ! 🙏🏻❤️👍 I tried the Salted today, and it was so yummy! I can’t wait to try the other flavours. It’s hard to believe that these are both vegan and gluten free. They taste exactly like milk-chocolate. These would be great as stocking stuffers. But, on second thought, I don’t really want fo share. 😉 Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend! Don’t forget to spread a little sweetness wherever you go. With love, Light, and gratitude always...

“If you are going to rise, you might as well shine.” Right?!☀️✨🍋 Need a little help on this Monday morning? Check out this MORNING RISE AND SHINE Alkaline Mineral Drink by @prairienaturals : ✔️Formulated by Holistic Pharmacist RoseMarie Pierce ✔️Starts your day the alkaline way! ✔️Lemon & aloe with mineral salts ✔️Promotes bone health ✔️Alkalizes & cleanses ✔️Tested gluten-free ✔️Tasty & energizing ✔️Balances body pH ✔️Vegan . . . Wondering what exactly “pH level” even means? What we call pH is short for the potential of hydrogen. It’s a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of our body’s fluids and tissues. It’s measured on a scale from 0 to 14. The more acidic a solution is, the lower its pH. The more alkaline, the higher the number is. A pH of around 7 is considered neutral, but since the optimal human body tends to be around 7.4, we consider the healthiest pH to be one that’s slightly alkaline, and pH levels vary throughout the body, with the stomach being the most acidic region. (Source: https://www.google.ca/amp/s/draxe.com/alkaline-diet/amp/) . . According to Merck Manuals Online Medical Library, blood that is slightly alkaline, or 7.35 to 7.45, is optimal for proper body functions. Most people with an imbalance are too acidic, which can cause a variety of health ailments, including cardiovascular disease, complications of diabetes and bone fragility.

There are 14 days left until Christmas….”EEEk! Just two weeks”, or “YAY!! Two full weeks”...depending on how you look at it! ☺️ If you’re anything like me, you are probably scratching your head trying to think of last minute gift ideas...like that perfect teacher gift or hostess gift. 🎅🏼🤶🏻🌲🎁 I was humbled to be invited to @theggsisters #kspchristmasparty last night where they opened their beautiful hearts and home to a truly inspiring group of women. It was so exciting to finally meet these amazing women, moms, and entrepreneurs in person. Their kindness, generosity, and Light is beyond measure. ❤️✨💯 Last night’s gathering featured 20 amazing gift ideas under $20 courtesy of @kspstuff. I could literally spend hours in this store, and I have! 🎁 We enjoyed delicious food made by @foodfables , we laughed, and laughed some more, and got to play along during Laura and Josie’s Facebook Live. We even got to choose our favourite gift! I snagged the kitchen scale! I called it from the moment I saw it. LOL. 🤗 Did you know that you can still enter to win some very practical gifts??? Just follow @theggsisters on IG or go their Facebook page and watch last night’s live stream. Every comment is an entry to win fabulous gifts. Winners will be chosen next week. Swipe ⬅️! I want to extend a huge thank you to @theggsisters for their hospitality and their big warm hugs. Also, thank you to @kspstuff for the awesome swag that we were able to go home with last night. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 I am so grateful for all the new connections that blossomed last night. It was a beautiful reminder that we live in a small world,and as such, it is so important that we lift each other up, and allow one another’s Light to shine. 😍✨👌 With love, gratitude, and good vibes always...

Wow! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on here. I hope everyone is doing well! 🤗 There’s been a lot going on outside of these little squares. 🙃 Getting sick is not an option, but it does happen, especially during this very busy time of year. When a respiratory illness strikes, I automatically reach for an essential oil (like Eucalyptus)...it can be diffused, and it can also be combined with a carrier oil, like coconut oil, and rubbed onto the soles of the feet and/or onto the chest for almost instant relief from stuffiness. Until next time, sending you all a waterfall of GOOD VIBES! ✨💕🙏🏻 . . #healthymadewell @prairienaturals @VistaMagCanada #Oilinatube #Livethehealthylife #prairienaturals #VistaMagCanada #VistaAmbassadors

Happy Saturday, lovelies! 💕 Woke up to fluffy white snow blanketing our neighbourhood, and news coverage of the Santa Claus Parade which will be taking place tomorrow in Toronto. Even though it feels and looks like winter has arrived, it is still officially fall. So today’s brunch is a twist on the classic Toad in a Hole. I swapped the bread for an oven roasted slice of pepper squash (roasted with Herbamare and a bit of black pepper). Want to make this simple, yet deliciously healthy dish? Preheat a skillet on medium-high heat, and add a bit of evoo (or avocado oil). Add the slice of squash to the pan, crack an organic egg into the hole. Lower the heat to medium low, cover with a lid (or place in a preheated 350 degree oven) and let it cook until the egg is set. Top with some sautéed oyster mushrooms, red onion, garlic, Herbamare, and fermented turmeric. Sprinkle with some fresh chives and serve with a big green salad. I had one little slice of homemade grain free bread in the freezer, so I had that on the side as well. Wishing you all a beautiful weekend filled with love and Light. 💗 . #healthymadewell #healthyforme #healthybrunch #healthyeats #simplemeals #foodismedicine #healing #proteinrich #lowcarb #igfood #healthylooksgoodonyou #eatmoreplants #grainfreemeals #grainfree #dairyfree #paleo #jerf #wholefoods #intuitiveeating #mindfuleating #cookcl #thenewhealthy #prairienaturals
I ‘ M S O R R Y I want to take a moment and apologize to this little girl. I’m sorry for all the times I didn’t believe in you or in your abilities. I’m sorry for all the mean things I may have said to you. I’m sorry for not trusting your instincts. I’m sorry for thinking you were not enough. I’m sorry for not being present. I’m sorry for worrying so much about the future, and not appreciating each moment. I’m sorry for letting fear consume so many of your days. I’m sorry for comparing you to others. I’m sorry for putting up walls. I’m sorry for not asking for help when you needed it most. I’m sorry for not respecting your needs. I’m sorry for being so hard on you. I’m sorry for not loving every part of you. I’m sorry I wasn’t kinder to you. I’m sorry for this and so much more. After all these decades, I finally realize that you were doing the best you could. That you were enough. That you were so loved and appreciated. These are just a few of the things I wish I would have said to you: Hang in there Be here now Circumstances will change First love yourself Be authentically you Be unapologetically you Stop your worrying It’ll be okay Enjoy every moment Life is precious Don’t be afraid Just do it Fear less sweetheart Be brave beautiful Love without fear Chin up love All is well Trust the journey You got this Appreciate this moment Be grateful always Shine your Light You are loved Lead with love I love you I believe that kindness begins with ourselves. We cannot share that which we do not possess.

We will remember.🌺 . . "The Man In The Arena" Speech at the Sorbonne Paris, France April 23, 1910 “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” . . #healthymadewell #111111 #remembranceday #november11 #remembranceday2018 #remembrancedaypoem #remembrancedayquotes #weremember #lestweforget #peace #love #hugowar #100years #armistice100 #centenary #bravery #courage #sacrifice #freedom #weshallnotforget #neverforget #remember #withloveandgratitude

Sometimes the simplest meals are the best. 💯 One of my favourite fall dinners is some kind of protein (grilled chicken breast), oven roasted veggies with turmeric, Herbamare, and black pepper (cauliflower, fennel, carrots, cremini mushrooms, and red onion), and a garden fresh salad (radicchio from my dad’s garden, romaine, cucumbers). TIP: Double the amount of whatever you are cooking and take the rest for lunch the next day! What’s on your dinner plate tonight??? I feel like I’m running out of ideas!

My favourite part of carving pumpkins is the seeds...seasoning, roasting, and snacking on them, that is! Don’t throw away those pumpkin seeds...I know it can be a bit tedious to clean them up, but trust me, it is so worth it! This year, I made two kinds of roasted pumpkin seeds: Tamari Garlic and Turmeric and Herbamare. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Wash and pat your pumpkin seeds dry. Drizzle with evoo. Sprinkle with a bit of Tamari, sea salt, and garlic powder, or fermented turmeric powder and Herbamare. Roast for 10 minutes and then give the seeds a mix and roast another 10 minutes or so until crispy.

“Nourishing yourself in a way that helps you blossom in the direction you want to go is attainable, and you are worth the effort." – Deborah Day If you’ve been following me for awhile, you probably know how much I enjoy cooking and baking. I love getting creative in the kitchen and making meals that meet my dietary needs (grainfree, dairyfree, refined sugar free, etc.). There are some days, however, when I come home from work, and the last thing I want to do is cook dinner. I just want to relax, put my feet up, and unwind. It’s on days like these that I am grateful for businesses such as @fitfoodcanada. . Fit Food is an awesome meal prep and delivery service. Fit Food gives you an easy and realistic way to have it all, in the comfort of your own home, with great tasting, fresh and nutritious gourmet meals delivered to your door. You can browse their selection of healthy meal plan delivery options available throughout the GTA at fitfood.ca. You can choose from one of their delicious, smoothies, hearty dishes, or satisfy your sweet tooth with some of their favorite baked goods. . . . “Caring for your body, mind, and spirit is your greatest and grandest responsibility. It's about listening to the needs of your soul and then honoring them." – Kristi Ling
Turmeric? Have you heard about it? How about FERMENTED turmeric? What’s that? Enter... @prairienaturals Fermented Turmeric. It delivers the power of turmeric with the added benefit of being naturally fermented. This naturally fermented organic turmeric powder is an ideal way to fortify the nutritional power of your daily smoothies and meal preparations. . . I simply added a teaspoon to an entire head of cauliflower with a little evoo, black pepper, and Herbamare and roasted it in the oven for about 25 minutes at 400 degrees. . . Did you know??? . Fermentation increases bioavailability in two ways. First, the key nutrients within turmeric are much better absorbed into the body due to enhanced water solubility. Second, those nutrients are converted into an activated form that the body can readily utilize for full effect. Fermented turmeric is also less spicy and therefore more tolerable. . . The amounts of key nutrients within turmeric are significantly increased through fermentation. Research shows that when curcumin, one of many curcuminoids within turmeric, is fermented, a substantial amount of it is transformed into a compound called tetrahydrocurcumin. This activated, water-soluble curcuminoid has superior antioxidant activity and is better absorbed by the body than curcumin. Interestingly, curcuminoids also work better together rather than on their own, so fermenting whole turmeric provides the greatest synergy and benefit. . . There’s another great advantage of fermented turmeric. Because micro-organisms are required for fermentation, the turmeric is delivered as a living, whole food matrix rich in enzymes and beneficial microflora to support our own digestive systems. . . (Source: https://www.alive.com/ask-the-experts/ask-the-experts-fermented-turmeric/) . . Daily supplementation with turmeric may help to reduce inflammation and provide antioxidant protection to your cells. . . . #healthymadewell @VistaMagCanada #fermentedturmeric #Organicturmeric #prairienaturals #VistaMagCanada #VistaAmbassadors

Today, October 11th, marks the International Day of the Girl... . . "Girl power in my mind is to let girls be exactly what they are. Let them be angry. Let them be resentful. And rebellious. Let them be hard and soft and loving and sad and silly. Let them be wrong. Let them be right. Let them be everything, because they are everything." ~Amy Sherman-Palladino . . Happy International Day of the Girl 2018! Now in its sixth year, the United Nations has selected October 11 as a day to appreciate that it is not easy being a girl today. Every day, we only hear devastating incidents, various injustices that women are facing across the world. Since 2012, nations across observe this day to highlight global progress in female achievement and raise up issues regarding the unique needs of girls and special challenges they face in the complex world.

STAND UP FOR CHILDREN AND GIRLS EVERYWHERE Humans have rewritten the meaning of possible thousands of times over. Yet we continue to leave millions of children behind — especially girls — and have come to accept this as ‘normal’. Plan International Canada is calling on all Canadians to Defy Normal: to believe in the power and potential of every child and to take a stand anywhere children are oppressed, exploited or left behind and anywhere girls aren’t equally valued. Join us. Together we can create a world where all unleash their full potential.

Dear Soul, Yes. YOU! The soul that has been on a healing journey for what seems to be like an eternity. STOP. Take a deep breath. You’ve been searching for answers for so long. You’ve been passed around from one doctor/specialist/natural healer to another. You’ve read all the books, listened to all the podcasts, and attended all the workshops/seminars/webinars. You have meditated, prayed, and journaled. You have lost sleep. You have been worried and consumed by fear. You have felt judged, isolated, and alone. You have been told that time heals all wounds. You have repeated your story so many times that you are tired of hearing yourself speak. STOP. Take a really deep breath. You are healing. The answers you seek are seeking you. You, my dear soul, hold the key to your health. You can heal your life. Look within. Where do you feel broken? What pieces are falling apart? When, where, and what part of yourself has been lost? Is there a conversation you are neglecting to have with your younger self? With a loved one? With your current self? Is there someone you need to forgive? Do you need to forgive yourself? DO IT! Forgive. Let go. Make amends. Come to peace with the past and the hurt it may have caused. Find that which sets your soul on fire. You are blessed. You are alive. You are breathing. THINK... What can you do to be fully present in this moment? What are you most grateful for? How can you make today even better than yesterday? What can you do to be the best possible version of yourself? What can you do to serve the greater good? RISE UP! Do that! Focus on the good. This life is meant to be lived. FULLY and COMPLETELY. It’s happening FOR YOU, not to you. Let your beautiful Light shine. The world needs it more than you know. Have faith. You are healing. You are exactly where you are meant to be. Trust the process. You are safe. You are loved. 💕 . . . #healthymadewell #dearsoul #youarehealing #healing #healingjourney #beautifulreminders #notetoself #healingvibes #trusttheprocess #health #wellness #mentalhealthawareness #autoimmunedisease #theuniversehasyourback #worldmentalhealthday #inspire #shareyourlight #truthbomb #daniellelaporte
Wishing all of my Canadian friends and fam a Happy Thanksgiving Monday! I am thankful for each and every one of YOU! 🍂🍁❤️ . . . Thanksgiving in Canada is a celebration of being thankful for what one has and the bounty of the previous year. Thanksgiving in French is l’Action de grâce. Thanksgiving Day in French is le Jour de l'Action de grâce. On the second Monday in October, we celebrate the harvest and other blessings of the past year. . . . My Dad harvested a ginormous squash from his garden (believe it or not, this is only a quarter of it). I harvested some sage from my herb garden...I combined the sage with a bit of evoo and freshly squeezed orange juice (from one orange) in a pan on the stove-top for a few minutes...then, I drizzled it over the squash halves (that I had deseeded, scored with a knife, and placed in a shallow baking dish). I sprinkled the squash with some Herbamare, and placed the sage leaves on top. I added a bit of water to the pan. Lastly, I roasted the squash in the oven at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes. . . Et voilà! A beautiful, delicious, and nutritious harvest side dish. . . . Sending you love, Light, and peace today and always. xo Laura . . . #healthymadewell #squash #roastedsquash #fresh #sage #keepitsimple #buzzfeedtasty #healthyeats #grainfreeliving #realsimple #gardenfresh #gardentotable #squashlovers #harvesttime #thanksgiving #glutenfree #glutenfreelifestyle #grainfreeeats #grainfreelife #beautifulfood #grainfree #dairyfree #paleo #vegan #onmyplate #cookcl #thenewhealthy #eatlocal #easysidedish #grateful

T H A N K S G I V I N G The act of giving thanks, expressing gratitude, and demonstrating kindness. A statutory holiday celebrated one day per year, in only certain countries around the world. I believe Gratitude is An attitude, A practice, A feeling, that should be woven throughout our daily lives. Before daylight breaks, or upon opening our eyes. It is important to give thanks for our blessings, big or small, and to appreciate them all. We are breathing, We can move, We can choose To let go, To be happy, To be loving, To be at peace. With each new day, May we Appreciate, Recognize, and Acknowledge The present moment, The past, and Everything in between. Let us always be thankful, As gratitude is a magnet for miracles and turns what we have into enough. . . . Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving today and everyday. ❤️🍁😘🍂🤗🙏🏻 .

Happy First Day of October, friends and fam!🍁 The beginning of a new month means it’s time to set some new intentions. 💖 I chose cards randomly from my @mayyouknowjoy decks. (I think the Universe knows what I need more than I do, by the cards I pulled). 😍 These are my intentions: 1. LIGHT I find and fan my inner glow. I radiate light and am the light. I lighten up. I release what is no longer serving me. I indulge in things that light up my soul. 2. MAGIC I trust that the Universe has my back. Anything is possible. I am boundless. I bring a little sparkle of magic into all that I do. 3. VOICE I explore the powerful force that is my voice. I speak my truth. 4. GRATITUDE I express gratitude for the abundance with which I have been blessed. I acknowledge, and I am thankful for my accomplishments. 5. JOY I am the fullest expression of my highest self. I create blissful moments. I surround myself with people, experiences, and things that bring me joy. I laugh more and worry less. . . My heart is filled with gratitude...I am ready for you October. Please be good to me and to my loved ones. . . . Do you set intentions? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to comment below or tag me in your intention posts at #healthymadewell , and I will share them in my stories. . . Wishing you all a magnificent start to this new month! With love, Light, and gratitude always, Laura 💗💕🙏🏻 . . . #healthymadewell #october #intentions #helloctober #fall #autumn #thanksgiving #gratitude #family #friends #love #mayyouknowjoy #magic #begrateful #givethanks #bethelight #palosanto #palosantowood #energyclearing #freshstart #change #changeisgood #crystals #intentionsetting #newmonth #spiritjunkie #theuniversehasyourback #octoberintentions
