EVO Hemp Cauliflower Oats

Hemp and cauliflower “oats” is a hearty and filling breakfast that has the traditional texture—without the grains. You can modify the recipe dozens of different ways by varying fruits, nuts, seeds, natural sweeteners, milks, and other toppings. While this recipe used full-fat coconut milk and water, you can use dairy milk or another non-dairy alternative you prefer. We also added collagen for an extra protein boost. Find your favorite taste combination, and enjoy this Primalized classic.

Servings: 2

Time in the Kitchen: 15 minutes


  • 2 1/2 cups Frozen Riced Cauliflower
  • ½ cup + 2 Tbsp. Coconut Milk
  • ½ cup Water
  • 2 Tbsp. Ground Flaxseeds
  • ½ Tbsp. Almond Butter
  • 3 Tbsp. Pumpkin Seeds, divided
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. EVO Hemp Hearts
  • 2 Scoops Primal Kitchen® Vanilla Coconut Collagen (optional)
  • ½ cup Raspberries (or sub your favorite berry)
  • Optional Toppings: Maple Syrup, Hemp Hearts, crumbled Primal Kitchen Coconut Lime Bar


In a pot, combine the cauliflower, coconut milk, water, and ground flaxseed and heat over medium heat. Stir occasionally.

Once it starts to bubble (about 3-4 minutes), add the almond butter and give the mixture a stir. Reduce the heat to medium low and cover the pot. Heat for an additional 5 minutes, removing the lid occasionally to stir.

Take half of the pumpkin seeds and pulse them quickly in a grinder, blender or food processor so they are chopped small but not yet in the form of a powder. Pour the pulsed pumpkin seeds in the pot and stir. Cover the pot again for an additional 2-3 minutes.

When you uncover the pot again, add the vanilla extract and hemp hearts. Around this time it should start resembling thin “oats.” If you are adding the Collagen Fuel, any sweeteners, or additions like cinnamon, add them now. Gently stir the oats uncovered over medium-low heat so it is just bubbling until the mixture reaches the consistency of your liking (keep in mind that it will continue to thicken a small amount after it is removed from heat).

(If the mixture seems too thick, you can add a small amount of additional water or coconut milk. If the mixture is still too soupy and thin, you can either try adding ground flaxseed a teaspoon at a time or continue to cook the mixture uncovered until it reaches your desired thickness.)

Pour the “oats” into a glass or bowl and top with raspberries, a sprinkle of hemp hearts, the remaining pumpkin seeds, and any other favorite add-ons you may have!

Air Fried Chicken Wings Recipe

This air fried chicken wings recipe is simple, delicious and easy to make! Perfect for game day or a guys night!

It only takes minutes to prep for the air fryer and cleanup is minimal. The flavors are simple yet tasty and they pair well with just about anything you plan to serve them with! They look great on a party table too, and if the guys are coming over, you won’t get any complaints when they are chowing down. Serve with your favorite game day sides and everyone is sure to be happy with the party food supply! Sshhhhh! They don’t need to know these are on the healthier side!

A cutting board with air fryer chicken wings sits with a small pile of baby carrots next to it.


If you love fried chicken wings but don’t want all the extra fat content that comes along with frying, an air fryer is the way to go. While it won’t reach that totally crunchy stage, it gets close enough to call it delicious.


While this recipe certainly isn’t meant to be a hot wings recipe, you could certainly turn it into one! Simply add some Franks hot sauce for a healthy, spicy upgrade! A couple of tablespoons should do the trick. Or, if you want an actual hot wings recipe, you can try this one here. However, they are baked in the oven.

A batch of Air Fryer Chicken Wings sit ready to eat on parchment paper.


If you love chicken wings, there is no reason  you can’t occasionally enjoy them on a healthy diet. They are definitely higher in fat, but the key word here is, “occasionally”. If you have them once a year for Super Bowl Sunday, or a couple times a year for another big game day, you’ll most likely be just fine, barring and strict dietary instructions from your doctor, of course. But honestly, if you’re going to indulge, do so with whole, real food and just enjoy it. Part of a balanced, healthy approach to food is actually enjoying what you eat. So as long as you don’t overdo it, there’s no reason to avoid something like this indefinitely. And yes, this is definitely a simple yet tasty recipe! So enjoy!

This Air Fryer Chicken Wings Recipe is done cooking and ready to eat with some baby carrots and lemon slices on the side.


The best part about this recipe is how easy it is! One mixing bowl and one air fryer and you’re good to go! Simply mix the wings with the other ingredients in a large mixing bowl and dump them into the air fryer. Can’t get much easier than that! And the cleanup is minimal. Those are my favorite kinds of recipes!


If you are in the market for an air fryer, I’ve heard good things about these. I have this one here.

The key to feeling happy isn’t what you thought. This makes all the difference! (Organic Vitamin D3)

Several years ago I worked in a corporate office environment and lived in a city condo. I’d wake up, walk down to the indoor gym in my condo, and then drive from one below-ground parking garage to another. I literally NEVER went outside. Then I’d work all day in a building that had tunnels to get to various lunch spots. The next day I’d do it all over again…again.

After awhile I noticed that I just didn’t feel like myself and was starting to feel depressed. I’ve always felt it’s important to trust your intuition and listen to your body. Because if you don’t, who will? So, I went in to get some blood work done and my doctor told me that my vitamin D levels were low. This made perfect sense! You see, exposing yourself to sunlight every day is a primary way to keep your vitamin D levels up. And since I was basically hiding inside all day long, my vitamin D levels to PLUMMETED. 

Even if you don’t work in an office, this could be happening to you too. Experts say over 1 billion people today don’t get enough vitamin D and if you don’t get enough, you may feel:

  • Tired
  • Anxious or irritable
  • Overall, just not like yourself

And since it’s tough to get a good quality Vitamin D supplement in a form that’s easy to take and absorb, we decided it was time for Truvani to step in to help. Watch the video to see how and why Truvani created the best Vitamin D supplement available today:


Your body CAN get vitamin D from exposure to sunlight. However, expert’s opinions vary when it comes to how much time you need to spend outside, and how much of your skin needs to be exposed. Other factors like the time of the year, where you live, and the color of your skin also affect how much time you need to spend in the sun to get the D that your body needs.

The bottom line is:

It’s not as easy as you might think – particularly with more and more of us working indoors and slathering ourselves with sunscreen, which blocks UV rays.

But don’t worry, you can get all of the crucial vitamin D that your body needs, by taking Truvani’s Sunshine in a Bottle Organic Vitamin D3 Supplement.

Truvani Bottled Sunshine Vitamin D Supplement

Supplementation is the easiest way to get your body the vitamin D that it needs. Truvani’s 100% vegan Vitamin D3 is unlike regular old vitamin D supplements. Ours is created using algae-like plants called lichens. These lichens accumulate D3 as they grow, and gets extracted at the source to ensure maximum freshness and potency.

So if you’re living life like I was…

Or experiencing any of the symptoms listed above… and perhaps your doctor has even recommended vitamin D…

You need a good source of this potent vitamin.

With Truvani’s Bottled Sunshine, you’ll experience the benefits of the “sunshine vitamin”, regardless of the weather.

Or lack of weather (lol)

So, if you’re ready to stop living your life in a fog and ready to brighten up your days…


P.S. Know anyone who might need a little more sunshine in their life? Share this with them!

Why you shouldn’t rely on orange juice for Vitamin C

One of my favorite things to do is take my daughter Harley to music class…

She’s 2 1/2, so this is a fun time for her to get some social skills and meet other kids. But meeting new kids comes with meeting new germs that can be tough for her immune system to handle. Of course, I wash Harley’s hands before and after class, but DURING class things get a little tricky. Especially when a little 6-month-old decides to drool all over the drum Harley wants to play with… RIGHT BEFORE Harley decides to rub her face. Perfect.

As a mom – you can see it all unfold right in front of your eyes in slow motion. You don’t even have time to grab a wipe and before you know it, her immune system can’t cope and she ends up getting sick. And then it spreads…

I get sick… my husband gets sick… it’s a vicious cycle. 

When I was sick as a child, my mom would give me orange juice. It’s a great source of vitamin C and good for your immune system, right? Well, not quite. Watch this video to see why orange juice isn’t the best way to get your vitamin C and what we now use instead…


Introducing Truvani’s Immuno-C made from organic amla berries…

Orange juice does have vitamin C, and it can help support our immune system. But, nowadays, most people don’t get Vitamin C from oranges. We fill our bodies with vitamin C supplements made from Synthetic Vitamin C. Isn’t it about time we started thinking about what we get our vitamin C from?

First of all, shouldn’t it be REAL?

Believe me, you don’t want your vitamins made in a lab. Synthetic vitamin C is made from ascorbic acid, and not only is this form difficult for the body to absorb, it can even upset your stomach. Why feel better in one way and feel awful in another? That’s like curing a headache with a nosebleed.

Second, shouldn’t it be STRONG?

Most people think oranges have the most vitamin C, when in fact, they are super low on the list. Oranges are like most politicians. A lot of promise. No delivery. Other fruits and vegetables aren’t that much higher, and you’d need to eat A LOT of them to get enough vitamin C.

But, there is ONE that’s higher in Vitamin C than them all…

The Amla Berry.

And after months of research and development, I’m so excited to share with you…

Truvani’s Immuno-C: An organic Vitamin C supplement made from organic amla berries.

Truvani ImmunoC Organic Vitamin C Supplement

The majority of the top vitamin C supplements on Amazon are synthetic and most “real food” supplements use less expensive ingredients, such as conventional citrus fruits. Truvani’s Immuno-C supplement was created with organic amla berries because they’re the only fruit that can retain their potency through the drying process and deliver the highest concentration of vitamin C. In fact, fresh amla juice contains 20 times as much vitamin C as is present in orange juice. Who knew right?

And EVERYONE needs some help in the immune support department… Vitamin C is key for giving yourself a fighting chance against the immune compromising condition known as “daily life”.

Tired, anxious, and irritable? The ONE thing missing from your health routine!

Back when I was working my high-powered corporate job, I was a mess. I wasn’t eating well. I was full of anxiety and stress.

I DEFINITELY wasn’t sleeping well. And I got very irritated by the smallest things too. Actual footage of me screaming into a pillow at night after work…

You’ve probably been there too… 

You know, those times when you’re staring at the computer screen and can’t concentrate. Those times you’re banging your head against the wall, trying to remember something. And how about those times that you get a little too heated while talking to a loved one. We have ALL been there! And, you know where much of this irritability and frustration comes from?

Lack of sleep.

So what can you do when you find yourself unable to face the day?

More Coffee?

You’ve already had two cups and are starting to twitch.

A Sugary Snack?

You don’t need that junk. 

These solutions only help treat the symptoms and NOT the cause. You’re tired. And a good day begins with GOOD sleep. So why not start there?

Prioritizing sleep is how I got out of my funk – and you can too. Watch this to see how I “sleep like a baby”, each and every night:


Truvani magnesium mineral magic

Magnesium is a naturally occurring mineral that is an extremely important nutrient for the human body. In fact, it handles over 300 reactions in your body. Sounds pretty important right? Especially since 70-80% of the American population is deficient in magnesium!

Since food has become the massive mono-cultured travesty that it is, our fruits and veggies just don’t have as much magnesium in it as it did for past generations. We also lose magnesium when we sweat and use the bathroom… and a lot of people out there just don’t realize they’re losing magnesium at an alarming rate.

Truvani’s Mineral Magic Magnesium is sourced straight from the nutrient dense Dead Sea. Magnesium compounds from the waters of the Dead Sea are of superior quality with significantly low levels of heavy metals lead, arsenic, aluminum, and mercury.

Bottom line:

It’s got all the stuff you need, and not what you don’t.

Truvani’s Mineral Magic Magnesium can help ease anxiousness and quiet all of the swirling thoughts in your head. Imagine being able to erase the extensive to-do list that pops up as soon as you close your eyes.

You wouldn’t need a white noise machine, ear plugs, or even a sleep mask.

You could just put on your pjs, crawl under your cozy covers, and enjoy hours of uninterrupted sleep.

Sure, life may never stop coming at you…

But at least you’ll rest as best as you can.

Hat Is Matte Black

(If you didn’t get that, my title is an Old Town Road reference!) Have you noticed the matte filter I’ve been using a lot? I’m mildly obsessed 🙂 It makes photos look so moody! And corrects bad lighting so well.

Happy FRI-YAY!

Starting the day off with a Daily Harvest smoothie in a bowl with granola on top. This was the carrot + chia flavor and I loved it! My top flavors are Acai + Cherry, Blueberry + Hemp and Carrot + Chia.

I had the leftovers the next day from a jar plus nibbles of the kids’ breakfasts. You know how that goes 😉

Movin’ and Groovin’

Birchie boo has been all over the house climbing up on things (and bonking his little head on things 🙁 ) Suddenly he’s such a curious little boy. It must be fun to finally be able to explore. And of course it’s the cutest thing ever when he comes crawling to my feet and looks up at me. If I say “uppy” he will raise his arms so I can pick him up <3

Fresh Italian Cooking

Alex Caspero wrote the cookbook Fresh Italian Cooking For The New Generation back in 2016 and sent me a copy. I was reading through it last week and made one of her kale salads. (I swapped orzo out and farro in since that’s what I had on hand, and added a bunch of lemon zest!)

Plus a generous sprinkle of this salt I found at Feast!

It was great for lunch and a side dish multiple days in a row!

Italian Chicken From Plenty

Italy was the theme of the week! We had this dinner ready in a flash from Plenty and everyone loved it, Mazen included.

Bachelorette Talk

First, this coconut cream pie in a jar from Plenty was OOTW! It was a treat to eat while watching Hannah get fired up at Luke. I don’t want to spoil the episode here in the post, so let’s talk the chat to the comments. WHAT DID YOU THINK?! It’s rare that I’m animated while watching TV, but I was gasping and cheering from the couch! This has been my favorite season so far, and I am now a big Hannah fan. Cannot wait to see what happens next! Also: Peter for Bachelor.

Have a great weekend! My sister and fam are coming to spend it with us!
