How many of you are in the zone with your workouts? Let’s keep pushing each other to stay motivated!
Here’s a quick health & fitness tip:
Add 1 teaspoon of Turmeric to your post-workout smoothie to aid with fat loss and help improve muscle soreness. I’d suggest buying it fresh and grating it. If not, i’m also a huge fan of the Simply Organic brand at Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and most health food markets.
Turmeric is fat soluble meaning it will only absorb into your body properly and give you every health benefit if you include a healthy fat in the recipe! I like turmeric with avocado! Add 1 teaspoon of Turmeric and 1/2 an avocado to your fav smoothie ingredients and drink up within 30 minutes of finishing your workout. Hope that helps <3
P.S. It’s also pretty amazing for cancer prevention, weight control, improved digestion and as a boost for the immune system. Just to name a few!

Q:Hey Fran, my hair is extremely dry and a bit itchy so I wanted to try your DIY mix with the colloidal oats. Thing is I don't have that, I have 100% wholegrain fine oatmeal, stoneground. Can it still be used? Do you suggest anything else to combat dryness? Thank you!
I only suggested Colloidal Oats because the powdery consistency was easier to work with in DIY projects! Otherwise, the whole oats would be a pain to wash out of our hair. You can use the oatmeal you have and simply blend it before adding it to the mix!
Homemade Hemp Milk
Making your own hemp milk is easier than buying it! Plus by making your own, you don’t get any extra added ingredients, just pure creamy goodness. However, since there are no added flavorings, this milk tastes a lot like hemp seeds (as it should) so the flavor might be a tad stronger if you are accustomed to store-bought hemp milk. We buy Nutiva shelled hemp seeds in bulk through amazon.com. I like to store a jar of them in the refrigerator and the rest in the freezer to keep them fresh.
I’ve been drinking more hemp milk than almond milk lately. This Pacific brand and this Tempt brand. I’m def gonna try to make some. Hemp milk is awesome if you’re lactose intolerant, are having issues with high blood pressure or cholesterol. It has essential fatty acids your body doesn’t produce on its own, so incorporating it into your diet will greatly improve your health! Even your skin and hair will look amazing!
I’m not a big coffee drinker and I’m not huge on black tea, but I love chai tea, especially chai lattes. The smell is amazing! So I was so excited to see this soap recipe that uses chai tea as a exfoliating base. Even better, this one also uses melt and pour soap which is incredibly simple to use, meaning you could make a few of these to give away as gifts too.
