Chia, Honey, and Blueberry Facial Mask
Soothe inflammation with this homemade facial mask full of antioxidants and natural humectants.

Coco Mocktail Fizz
Missing those cocktails but want to stay on track? Here's a light yummy alternative you can enjoy mojito-style with mint. You can even add fresh berries or lime slices for a festive look. Don't be afraid to take this to parties, but bring extra because your friends will want some too!

Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Organic Pumpkin Pie
It just wouldn't be Thanksgiving without the pumpkin pie. So, drop the guilt, and enjoy a yummy slice of this healthier lower-sugar option. Add a dollop of Coconut Whipped Cream to top it off!
Coconut-Red Lentil Soup
This is a favorite among my vegan friends, and even meat-eaters will love the flavorful creamy soup. Enjoy leftover chutney with other meals.

Oven Roasted Salmon with Beluga Lentils and Salsa Verde
This is one of my favorite recipes! The combination of savory salmon, black lentils, and tangy salsa is sure to satisfy your palate – and you can relax, knowing every ingredient is nourishing your skin from within.
