How not listening to my body almost destroyed me

Last night on Facebook Live I took you on an inside look of what has been been going on in my life, my recent health issues and a few self-care tips and recommendation. For those who missed it below is the recorded broadcast. 


 

And like I promised in the broadcast, below is the recipe I am using for Golden Milk aka the turmeric tea I drink every morning. There are a few renditions of this recipe on Pinterest and I promise to update you on social media as I try out the different versions of it. 

Golden Milk 

Tip: Some recipes call for vanilla and 1 tsp of coconut oil but I haven't tried it this way yet.  In addition, I use almond milk because I prefer it in taste to coconut milk and depending on my mood, or how I'm feeling that day sometimes I add more or less of the turmeric powder.  

Pour all of the ingredients into a saucepan and boil for a couple minutes. If you are not using powders make sure to blend all of the ingredients in the blender before boiling.  Pour into your favorite "Hey Gorgeous" mug and enjoy all of the anti-inflammatory properties of this yummy tea.

Once again, thank you so much for all of your support during this challenging time in my life. A big kiss goes out to you!

    Self-care is so important. I'm glad you're taking care of yourself and actively doing things to make you feel your best. Thanks for sharing this recipe. A lot of my yoga friends swear by turmeric. I haven't tried it yet! #blmgirls

    […] Last week I shared with you my personal battle with being diagnosed with undifferentiated connective tissue disorder.  Your love and encouragement has been an incredible support system for me and I am excited to share with you more about this journey and the changes I’ve taken to support my recovery.  One of the topics I received a lot of questions about was my diet and my dietary changes.  Man, you would have thought I told folks I was joining the circus. Yes, I know, the idea of not having bread, sweet treats, cheese and corn tortillas was shocking at first and truly devastating.  However, my need to feel healthy and “normal” again was my number one priority so off I went and picked up a few recommended autoimmune diet books and embraced the challenge. Thinking about giving this lifestyle a go? Here is last nights Facebook live video and a few additional tips, products  and services I recommend.  […]
