For super fluffy (not dense, not soggy, not sticky!) pancakes, gently mix together the wet ingredients with your dry ingredients. Mix these ingredients into your pancakes mix JUST until they are combined.

Don't overmix!

Adaptogens Just May Help You Feel Less Stressed : A Super-Herb
Adaptogens Just May Help You Feel Less Stressed : A Super-Herb

Raise your hand if you are feeling like you are being pulled in a few extra directions, if you feel like you just have more to do and not enough hours.

Yoga, breathing exercises, extra long walks can help calm you down .. or maybe you plunk yourself in front of the TV and binge watch your favorite TV show on Netflix. 

Do you know there are super herbs called adaptogens that can help you relieve your extra levels of stress?

So, what are adaptogens? “Adaptogens are basically a group of plants that you take over a long period of time in order to help your body adapt to stress and other ailments,”

They have been used for centuries in Chinese Medicine and while they don't simply eliminate stress they do actually help regulate your hormones.

How can they help me? Adaptogens can do a bunch of different things.  Some help boost your workout, some help improve energy levels and others will help you feel calm and reduce the stress.

Their names comes from their ability to "adapt" based upon your body and your body's needs. Kind of like a thermostat that regulates your heat or your cool to keep your home in an 'even' state.

What are some popular adaptogens? While there’s no clear consensus on exactly how many adaptogens exist, most experts seems to agree that there are approximately 15 plants that fall into the adaptogenic category. Some of the most common ones include ashwagandha, ginseng, ­­holy basil and maca

Should I try adaptogens? “In order for an adaptogen to be defined as such, it has to be safe, non-toxic and non-habit forming,” says Williams. But always check with a doctor before adding adaptogens into your daily routine, as some can interact negatively with certain medications and conditions.

We use adaptogens in several of our products, because we recognize these super amazing health benefits. 

Ginseng can be found in our KETO Matcha Ginseng Latte, Turmeric can be found in our Bone Broth Powder and Maca can be found in our Mega Maca Bars

Anti- Inflammatory Snack - Cinnamon Apple Chips
Anti- Inflammatory Snack - Cinnamon Apple Chips

Apple chips are thinly sliced apples that are lightly sprinkled with cinnamon, then baked until pleasantly crisp. Healthy homemade apple chips are a remarkably addictive snack. Unlike their store-bought counterparts, however, these apple chips use a light sprinkle of our sinfully cinnamon sweet spice blend.  They are baked and not fried, making them a super healthy treat

Refined cooking oils (which are found in most store-bought chips) are some of the worst inflammation culprits. Munch on these healthy bites instead to keep your inflammation down and the cinnamon adds a dose of heart healthy deliciousness


3 apples, sliced thinly

1 - 2 tablespoons Do You Bake? Sinfully Cinnamon Sweet Spice Blend

  1. Place racks in the upper and lower thirds of your oven and preheat your oven to 200 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silpat mat.
  2. Wash the apples. With an apple corer, very small cookie cutter, or the round side of a metal piping tip, core the apples (you can also skip this step if you don’t mind a few seeds in the chips). With a mandolin (recommended) or a very sharp knife, slice the apples horizontally into 1/8 inch-thick rounds.
  3. Arrange the apples in a single layer on the prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle with Sinfully Cinnamon. Bake for 1 hour in the upper and lower thirds of the oven. Remove the baking sheets and switch the pans’ position on the upper and lower racks. Continue baking for 1 to 1 1/2 additional hours, until a single apple chip removed from the oven is crisp when set out at room temperature for 2 to 3 minutes (to test the apple chips, remove a single apple slice but let the others continue baking). Once you are happy with the crispness (the total time will vary based on the thickness of your slice and the type of apple), turn off the oven and let the apples sit in the oven for 1 hour as it cools down to crisp further (unless you fear you overcooked them, in which case remove the pan immediately and let it sit at room temperature).

This is the *Best* Way to Thaw Ground Beef
This is the *Best* Way to Thaw Ground Beef

The best way to freeze ground beef and three methods for thawing it.

Here are the absolute best ways to thaw ground beef, even if you only have 10 minutes to spare:

If You have 4 or more hours : Defrost in the Fridge

The absolute best way to thaw your ground beef is without a doubt in the refigerator.  According to the USDA if you want to be on the safest side, the refrigerator is your best method for thawing your beef.  Simply remove your beef up to 2 days ahead of time, place it inside a large bowl (to prevent leaking into your fridge) and wait for it to defrost.  Once the beef has defrosted in the fridge, it should be cooked up within 2 days.  If for some reason you decide you aren't burger, meatloaf or meatball feelin' it, you CAN refreeze the beef as long as you use THIS method and it hasn't been over 2 days in the fridge

If you have 20 minutes : Submerge in cold water

Put your frozen meat in a second leak-proof large zip top bag and place it into a bowl of cold water, ensuring it's totally covered.  Ground beef that's been frozen flat will thaw in about ten minutes. Larger chunks will take longer (about 30 minutes per pound).  Once thawed, you will need to cook immediately.

If you have 10 minutes : Use the Microwave

The speediest way to defrost ground beef is definitely in the microawave. Place your beef in a microwave-safe ziptop bag with your frozen beef on a plate, leaving a small opening for the steam to escape. Use your defrost setting on your microwave to defrost for three to four minutes, turning the meat halfway through.  Remember, all microwaves differ, so you may need more or less time depending on the strength of your microwave.  Make sure you cook your ground beef immediately.

Maca Root - Adrenals, Stress and Sex .. Yeah Really
Maca Root - Adrenals, Stress and Sex .. Yeah Really

Maca is known as an adaptogen (plans that are used to help the body cope with stress).  Maca is one of those superfoods and it's actually earned it's nickname as "Nature's Viagara". 

Maca is a Peruvian root vegetable that kinda looks like a radish. And most often it's not eaten in stews or soups or other savory dishes but is instead ground into super pwoder form.

It's nutrietn dense and helps us balance our hormones. 

Some women who suffer from PCOS (polycycstic ovarian syndrome) even find their symptoms reduce or eliminate all together when they supplement with Maca.  It can help reduce the extra hair growth, bad acne and oily skin conditions. 

From the Sexy stuff... some resarch has shown it can boost our libido in both men and women. Another research published in the Asian Journal of Andrology found that maca may even improve sperm count in men.

Maca is a great superfoods to add to smoothies, oatmeal, and energy bars. We've even created our own MEGA MACA Bar with a serving of Maca in every bite!  Check Out our Crave It Mega Maca Energy Bar
