I hope your last week of July has been a good one ? August is just around the corner!
I am excited/nervous for tomorrow as I am working with a local photographer to have some photos taken. If the weather permits we will be taking a few pics at my house in town and then heading out of town to my parent’s farm to get some more pictures. I grew up on a farm (elk farm actually!) and it is a VERY special place to me and I really feel like it is home and represents who I am.
I am all about eating healthy, feeling good, helping people, helping and lovin me some animals, and trying to live a happier more balanced life and I hope that my pictures capture who I am. Guess we will see! Eventually they will make their way up on my website when I revamp it a bit in the fall (fingers crossed).
Keep you posted on how it works out!
This week I want to share with you one of my fave recipes – it’s fast, it’s EASY and it’s healthy.
I like it because the ingredients are simple, wholesome and the teriyaki sauce is basic and INSANELY delicious.
As you know, a lot of store bought dressings like BBQ sauce, teriyaki sauce and other condiments are loaded with sugar and processed or low quality ingredients. Once you see how easy it is to make your own teriyaki sauce you won’t ever look back!
My teriyaki sauce is packed with healthy ginger which is great for supporting your digestion, reducing congestion and reducing inflammation.
It also includes garlic which is highly nutritious and a huge immune system booster!
With these two awesome ingredients on your team, your body will thank you for it ?
Without further ado, here is one of my favorite recipes!
