Creamy broccoli and face mask

Posted Mar 12 2010 7:25am

Hello friends,

Oh how happy it makes us to see everyone enjoying the carrot cake recipe :) This dessert has become a staple in our lives especially since we have some type of carrot juice a day mixed with other veggies of course ;) We just always save the carrots to juice last so we can get all carrot pulp last that way we can use if for this recipe!

For the past few days we have changed our workouts to do them first thing in the morning and have been enjoying it! Lately, our schedule has become so busy so in order to have time to workout we have had to move our workouts to early morning :) Sometimes it is hard to get moving in the morning but after our lemon water and pre-workout snack we are ready to go :)

After yesterdays workout we made a grapefruit collard green smoothie

One of my favorites!  We also mix in some msm powder, turmeric, lots of ginger, camu camu and sunflower lecithin!

Snacked on a few donut holes (new creation) and a few collard green crackers . Before making some steamed broccoli covered with a new sauce we created :) I just had to jazz up plain old broccoli!

A creamy lime garlic sauce :) Perfect pairing for broccoli.

Michelle and I shared a whole head of broccoli. And let me tell you it was extremely filling :) Kept us full for majority of the afternoon.

We sipped on some homemade kombucha (we flavored ours ginger)!

A random snack was a little bit of coconut kefir and one carob macaroon

And finally dinner was a baby romaine salad with fermented veggies and more creamy lime garlic sauce ;)

Glorious salad that hit the spot for us both! We are both always craving our fermented veggies and kraut!

Pure2Raw Product Review:

We had the opportunity to use Raw Gaia Face Mask (they sent us some samples to try) over these past few weeks. You know we already loved their chocolate face mask so we were really excited to try this one.

Their Sun-dried Rhassoul Clay:

Love this face mask as well! I have been using it about once a week sometimes twice a week. And sometimes as spot treatment on my pimples overnight mixed with some apple cider vinegar. And love it. I feel it works well for my face without being so harsh like some other face mask out there. I love the way it feels on my face and how it makes my face feel afterwards.

Now we all know that clay mask are great for the skin though they can be very powerful in that they can pull out a lot of toxins. That is why I only use about once a week and as spot treatment a few nights a week.

At first I did find it too harsh but once I used it a second time my face seemed to like it :) I really like Raw Gaia’s products . I have also been using their MSM cream and loving it! As many of you know I am struggling with hormonal breakouts and these products have really seemed to be helping. I still get my flare ups from time to time but over all I feel these products are helping my skin heal. Just not has fast as I would like ;)

This Sun-dried Rhassoul Clay mask is very powerful and nourishing for the face. Rhassoul clay has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-microbial and antiseptic qualities which I love! I plan to continue using this clay about twice a week on my face. For more great information about this amazing face mask check out their site! It is worth every penny in my opinion.

Since I have sensitive and acne prone skin this mask has worked great for my skin. I am excited to see what it does for my face as I continue to use it :)

And check out Shannon Marie’s great giveaway ! Go check it out now!!!! :)

Till next time,
