How are those New Year’s resolutions going so far? I’ll be honest — I don’t have any because I can never stick to them. Mainly because I get lazy and easily fall back into my old habits. Good, now that I got that off my chest, I’d like to reach out to those who are doing awesome and keeping their resolutions (or maybe those who need a little encouragement).
I’ve recently connected with Caroline Shannon-Karasik of Sincerely Caroline and she shared her new book The Gluten-Free Revolution with me. What I was expecting was a gluten-free cookbook. What I got was an easy-to-follow healthy lifestyle book. Not only does it make living the gluten-free and vegan lifestyle easy to accomplish , but it also includes yoga and pilates exercises, tips on what items and tools to stock in your kitchen and has simple homemade beauty recipes.
After reading this book from top to bottom, I decided to share some of my favorite recipes with you.
Banana Bread Quinoa Cereal
I thought I’d give this recipe a try last night, and I’m glad I did! I ended up making a big batch so I could eat it for breakfast the rest of the week. It’s just as good warmed up as it is freshly made.
Raspberry Pick-Me-Up Smoothie
This vegan smoothie is rich with cacao, which will give you the boost you need to start your day.
Honey Dijon Chickpea and Olive Pizza
This pizza is made with all fresh ingredients — even the Dijon sauce is made from scratch!
Coffee Beauty Scrub
If you drink coffee, save the grounds to give your skin a lift. When I read the benefits of this scrub — dimple-free, toned and glowing skin — I thought, “Sign me up!”
Raspberry Lemonade Doughnuts
You can make doughnuts out of this flavorful mixture or opt for an easier bread version instead. Either way, your tastebuds will be satisfied!
The Gluten-Free Revolution Book, is available now.
