Rose Water Mist | Natural Beauty Series

Rose Water Mist

The Natural Beauty Series is back with one of my favorite DIY beauty products to make…ever! Rose Water Mist is a hydrating and cooling mist made with only 2 ingredients, smells amazing, and is completely refreshing. I constantly have rose water in my purse, favorite Madewell tote bag, car, gym bag, etc., everywhere I go I have small bottle of rose water to keep my skin looking fresh, dewy, and hydrated. I find it especially great to keep around when the seasons change, I’m not sure about you all but whenever we move into a new season my skin gets incredible sensitive. This Rose Water Mist is great to combat dry skin from the summer heat or winters chill- both times of the year when our skin needs a bit more lovin’.

Super Seed Muesli with Hemp Milk

Super Seed Muesli with Hemp Milk

I hope everyone had an awesome holiday weekend, I had an awesome weekend of relaxing and hanging out with friends, but I’m happy to be back! It’s going to be a two recipe in one post kind of day, luck you! Super Seed Muesli with Hemp Milk is a new muesli recipe I came up with to hit my kitchen and it’s taken over my morning porridge by storm. I’ve been LOVING this mineral rich muesli and hemp milk lately, both together as a quick raw porridge with fresh summer berries, but also enjoyed separately. Many mornings I start my day off with some variation of the Stripped Green Smoothie- sometimes it’s for pre-workout or post-workout- followed by another breakfast which is some variation of muesli, porridge, oatmeal, or granola. What can I say, I love breakfast so much I eat it twice.

Beachy Papaya Boats with Papaya Seed Drizzle

Beachy Papaya Boats with Papaya Seed Drizzle | Papaya Seed Drizzle We’re getting all beachy today on Nutrition Stripped. Just picture yourself on sandy beaches, ocean sea water at your toes, and a Beachy Papaya Boats with Papaya Seed Drizzle in hand. I’m obviously trying to hold on to summer as long as I can, even though here in Nashville I don’t need to try that hard it’s been SO hot here lately! Nonetheless, even if you’re in the middle of fall or winter for all my international readers, you can still enjoy this recipe to bring a little of the tropics and beachyness to your side of the globe with this recipe.

Beachy Papaya Boats with Papaya Seed Drizzle has been a recipe I’ve been making for a couple summers now, since I started enjoying papaya, and have come up with several variations using these unique tropical fruits. The center of the papaya is hollowed out so we can squeeze more goodies inside such as, fresh avocado, hemp seeds, juicy figs, crunchy cashews, and a dollop with Sweet Cream. They’re truly a dessert for breakfast kind of thing… or breakfast for dessert- however you look at it, it’s delicious!

What is a Plant-based Lifestyle?

What is a Plant-based Lifestyle? Plant-based. I use this term routinely to describe what the Nutrition Stripped lifestyle is all about, but what exactly does it mean- what is plant-based? I often have clients and readers ask me “am I plant-based if…”, my response is almost always a form of educating what the Nutrition Stripped lifestyle is all about and the flexibility it includes. What matters more than a term, an identity, or a definition, is how you truly live your life and the food choices you make. Living a plant-based lifestyle includes eating seasonally, local produce when available, and at the core, living in a way where we’re mindful of the connection between the source of our food and the nourishment it provides our body and mind. Therefore, it’s not another diet, fad, or dogma, it’s simply a lifestyle! This lifestyle embraces plant-based, whole foods for optimal nutrition and nourishment.
