White Bean and Polish Sausage Stew with Greens

White Bean and Polish Sausage Stew with Greens-www.nourishingsimplicity.org

Fresh juicy tomatoes, white beans, nourishing chicken broth, and slices of savory sausage are the foundation of this hearty stew. It is the perfect meal that ushers summer into fall.

My counter tops are covered in tomatoes straight from the garden. It is wonderful to enjoy them raw but when there is an overabundance they are just begging to be made into a warm dish.

Warm days are slowly giving way to fall. I love the cool mornings that hold a promise of blustery days to come. As soon as I feel a hint of crispness in the air my mind turns to nourishing soups and stews.

Simple meals like this white bean and polish sausage stew with greens is easy to prepare yet filling making it the perfect weeknight meal.

Jump Start Your Healthy Living Journey

Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle-www.nourishingsimplicity.org

Don’t you wish you had affordable short-cuts to make healthy living easier? Are you tired of trying to make a Whole Foods lifestyle work on a Trader Joe’s budget? Or maybe even make that Food-4-Less…

I get it. You want the best for your family. You want to raise healthy kids, have strong immune systems, be more fit and energetic, and be intentional about creating a natural home, but sometimes it just feels so hard. I’m in the exact same place.

There’s a lot to learn and the internet can be more than a little overwhelming at times.

I know what it’s like to feel that healthy living shouldn’t be this difficult, and it shouldn’t have to cost so much, either! Don’t you ever wish someone would just tell you exactly what you need to know and how to make these changes for less?

When you have the right info and tools at your fingertips, it all comes together so much more easily. You know what to cook for your family. You’re more confident in choosing natural alternatives. You can easily replace store-bought products with DIY options that really work. You feel better (and even look better, too). Healthy living becomes less stressful and more enjoyable.

That’s why Stephanie and her team have put together the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle for the fourth year in a row. Each year, they’re amazed at how many families are saying “yes!” to their health and taking them up on this super short opportunity to get a complete collection of natural-living resources for a crazy low price.

You sort of need to see it to believe it, but the package includes over 90 digital products on topics like natural remedies, essential oils, real food recipes, paleo & allergy-friendly eating, fitness & weight loss and much more. All together, it’s worth over $1900!

I know that I won’t use every single resource and I am okay with that. The price is one that can’t be beat.  Between my bonus offers that have been coming in the mail and five favourite picks of books (that I will share later today) I am already saving money and found the Bundle 100% worth it!

There are several catagories but the essentail oil books and allergy friendly cooking books are two that I am most excited about! They are great places to jump start your healthy living journey!

Plus, it comes with $225 worth of bonus products including:

  • ePantry – FREE hand soap + $8 credit on one shipment, FREE dish soap + $8 credit on the next shipment, AND 60-day VIP access with FREE shipping ($30 value)
  • Plant Therapy – Lemon, lavender and peppermint essential oil set ($22.92 value)
  • NaturOli – FREE travel essentials facial set: deep conditioning facial wash (1 oz.), new radiance facial creme (1 oz.), exfoliating walnut scrub (1 oz.) ($16.95 value)
  • Bloom Naturals – FREE SPOT treatment for acne & eczema OR a $15 gift certificate toward Bloom Naturals products ($15 value)
  • Lexie Naturals –  FREE natural care gift set: lip balm (.15 oz.), lotion tube (1 oz.) and trial-size deodorant (.35 oz.) ($15 value)
  • Perfect Supplements – $15 gift certificate toward any Perfect Brand product ($15 value)
  • Strawesome – $15 gift certificate toward the straws and accessories of your choice ($15 value)
  • TriLight Health – FREE 2-oz liquid herbal formula or $15 off larger bottles ($15 value)
  • Craftsy – 1 FREE online class ($44.99 value)
  • Once a Month Meals – $32 toward OAMM membership + a free mini menu ($35 value)

Besides being so incredibly helpful and inspiring, one of the things I like best about the bundle is the price. By offering the bundle for a short time only, they’re able to give you access to over $2000 worth of amazing products for a whopping 97% off!

Here’s how it works:

  2. You’ll receive an email with a login to their online access portal, where you’ll begin downloading your eBooks, signing up for your eCourses, and redeeming your free bonus products.
  3. Use their Getting Started Interactive Guides to pick the area you want to tackle first and start making healthy changes!

The most important detail, though, is that this bundle is available for just 6 days! After Monday night, September 14th, the sale ends and you’d have to buy all of these products individually.

I’d hate for you to miss out, so click HERE to learn more or buy the bundle.

It’s even backed by a full 30-day guarantee, so you can know for sure that it’s right for you.

No one should have to put off a healthier lifestyle because it costs too much or they can’t get the help they need. Our family has felt so much better by making changes to the way we eat, the products we use, and how we take care of ourselves. It’s made all the difference in the world and I want the same for you and your family.

Real Food Peach Milkshake

Real Food Peach Milkshake-www.nourishingsimplicity.org

Sweet peaches, fresh raw milk, and homemade vanilla ice cream blended until smooth to make the perfect summer drink.

Summer is slowly winding to a close but peaches are still showing up at my local farmer’s market. My dad and sister love peach milkshakes at a certain chicken restaurant. It definitely isn’t the most nourishing option since there is little real food in it. I decided to whip up an easy milkshake at home with ingredients we could feel good about.

I love how easy humble treats like this real food reach milkshake are to make!

Real Food Peach Milkshake

1 large peach, sliced
1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup raw milk (or milk of choice)

1. Add all three ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

2. Top with additional vanilla ice cream or whipped cream if desired.

Coffee Ice Cream with Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans

Coffee Ice Cream with Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans - www,.nourishingsimplicity.org

Rich, creamy espresso laced ice cream with bits of dark chocolate and espresso beans. It’s a cup of lovely coffee in a bowl of ice cream.

A couple months ago I was sitting a local coffee shop with a couple friends eating amazing gelato. As I savored the espresso gelato I immediately made plans in to create an ice cream version at home with dark chocolate added of course! How can you go wrong with that match-made-in-heaven pairing?

I guess you will have to join me at The Nourishing Gourmet to find out!

“Green” Smoothie

"Green" Smoothie - www.nourishingsimplicity.org

Green smoothies have been all the rage for quite a few years now. A simple search on Pinterest will give you more recipes that you can make in a year. I tend to be non-traditional when it comes to green smoothies, however. For a couple years, I did the whole kale and spinach thing but realized it wasn’t for me. I’ve come to realize that certain foods, like kale and spinach, should not be eaten frequently in their raw form.

Join me at Traditional Cooking School to learn why to avoid large amounts of leafy greens and how to make this awesome pick-me-up “green” smoothie!
