Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

I made these homemade peanut butter cups and they're yummy! And the best part is, it's all healthy ingredients! You can find the original recipe here.

The first time I tried this recipe I used natural Almond Butter. The second time around I used natural Peanut Butter instead and it was much better. I also lined the miniature pan with paper baking cups. Do this otherwise you'll regret it and have a hard time scooping them out of the pan! I also used raw cacao powder. So yes, this recipe is almost raw except for the peanut butter. Yummmm.....

Almost Raw Peanut Butter Cups Recipe
Makes approx 12 medium-sized Peanut Butter Cups
  • 1/2 c. raw peanut butter (I didn't use raw. Instead I used natural Peanut Butter)
  • 4 Tb coconut oil, melted (have I mentioned how healthy coconut oil is? So many wonderful health benefits!)
  • 4 Tb agave or maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Combine nut butter, coconut oil, agave, and vanilla together until well mixed.
  2. Pour into miniature cup cake baking cups. Freeze for 20 minutes.
  3. Remove from baking cups gently and dip each nut butter cup into the raw chocolate (recipe below) until fully coated.
  4. Freeze them again. Enjoy!
Raw Vegan Chocolate Recipe
{Raw vegan} Gluten, egg, and dairy-free
Makes 1/2 c. raw chocolate (There's is a lot of chocolate left over so you can save for later or make more!)
  • 1/2 c. coconut oil, melted
  • 6 heaping Tbs of raw cacao powder (or regular unsweetened cocoa powder will do, if you don’t have cacao) ...raw cacao powder is another super food!!! Very good for you!
  • 4 Tbs of maple syrup
  • pinch of salt
  1. Mix all of the ingredients into a bowl.

Before and After Body Wrap Photos

I gathered up a bunch of before and after pictures from customers and different people that used the It Works body wraps. If you would like to learn more about the wraps click here.

**Warning** The following photos show a lot of skin and are more revealing than the pictures I shared on my Facebook page. The following pictures are to show examples about the body wraps and how they can change skin texture, appearance and how they tighten, tone and firm the desired area. This is not intended to offend anyone so do not scroll down if you do not want to see a lot of skin!

I'm especially excited about this post because I'm also posting before and after photos my own Loyal Customer. She has seen significant results and it's so encouraging. I get excited when I see the transition myself and how the body wraps are helping people that I know. So, I wanted to share her photo with you all.

Here is a photo from one of my Loyal Customers:

Starting on Left...before the wrap, after the second wrap, 
after the third wrap. 

Do you see the difference?! Very excited for her! You can see the sides are smaller, the belly area 
is flatter and her back is smoother. She used the wrap on the front of her belly area. 
The first wrap she kept on for about one hour and the second  
and third wrap she slept in overnight. 

Here are a bunch of other photos from others using the It Works body wraps:

Let me know if you have any questions about the wraps. You can also visit my other post about the wraps and my website to order yours. Click here to visit my website. Have fun! And please feel free to share your story with me about how the wraps and the other It Works products are helping you reach your weight loss goal.

That Crazy Body Wrap Thing

So what is that crazy body wrap thing that I've been talking about on my Facebook page? Does it really work? How does it work?

These are questions that everyone is asking me so I thought I would write a post about it all. Whether you're wanting to try one, curious or skeptical about the body wraps, read on...

It Works! is a debt free company that sells products with natural ingredients to help people reach their weight loss goals and help people get their health back. They offer supplements for anti-stress, hot flashes, weight loss and more. But one of the most popular products they sell is the body wrap.

This is what the wrap looks like...

The Ultimate Body Applicator is infused with a powerful, botanically-based formula that tightens, tones, and firms. It also:
  • Minimizes cellulite appearance
  • Improves skin texture & tightness
  • Mess-free and simple to use
  • Results in as little as 45 minutes
  • Progressive results over 72 hours
  • Made with natural ingredients
One of the things that I love about the applicator is that the lotion on the wrap is made with natural ingredients. Some of the ingredients include: Green tea, Jojoba, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, and Ivy

You leave the wrap on for a minimum of 45 minutes. After the first wrap you can sleep with the remaining wraps on for better results. The only reason why you leave the first one on for 45 minutes is because they want to make sure you don't have a reaction to the ingredients or botanicals. Very few people have that happen. They recommend using the wraps every 72 hours but some Loyal Customers of mine use one wrap per week. It depends on each persons preference and how fast you want to see the results.

So what does the wrap do to your body? The botanicals in the wrap is an anti-inflammatory, increases micro circulation (which is helping release the toxins from the fat cells), hydrates the skin, and cleanses out the colon by preparing the body to react easier to weight loss attempt. Cleansing is important for everyone. Here is an article that explains why detoxing is so important for weight loss. Toxins are in the air we breathe, the food we eat and water we drink. It's in the environment we live in. Toxins cannot be avoided completely but we can do some things to keep them out of our system.

So what do you do to keep toxins out of our bodies? Cleansing and eating proper nutrition. By ingesting proper nutrients you will be able to support your body's functions to eliminate waste. Cleansing is the next step you can take to eliminate these toxins from your body. That is why these wraps are so amazing. Not only do you feel better and look better when you use the wrap, but you are also doing something good for your body. It's working inside you, from the inside out!

Here is an excellent video that one of the distributors put together that explains the science behind the wrap:

The box of applicators that you see on my website comes with four wraps. They sell the wraps this way because they want you to use the whole application and not just one wrap. 85% of people who use only one wrap see immediate results but the other few people do not so they want to make sure you use the whole box to get your maximum results. You WILL see results (click here for pictures!) and in order to keep the results you still need to take care of your body. If you intend to rely on the wraps as your only way to lose weight and NOT exercise and NOT eat a balanced diet, then of course your body is going to start packing on the pounds. I will not promote a product that replaces a healthy life style. You still need to feed your body the proper nutrition it needs and take care of your heart! Only you can do this. No one can do it for you. If weight loss is your goal, then the wraps will speed up your weight loss, give you more confidence, and you will see faster results. When you look in the mirror and see that your waist is smaller or your clothes are a little loser, what are you thinking? Happiness! "Happy people are more likely to work toward goals, find the resources they need and attract others with their energy and optimism — key building blocks of success." (American Psychological Association)

You can order the Ultimate Body Applicator on my website. The box of applicators comes with four wraps for $59 for Loyal Customers and $99 retail. Independent Distributors also get the same price as Loyal Customers. I also sell individual wraps for $25 and ship to anywhere in the U.S. or Canada. You wont find individual wraps on my website. You will need to contact me personally on my blog or message me to tell me you are interested in an individual wrap and I will ship you one.

There are other products that go very well with the wraps especially the Defining Gel.

If you combine the Defining Gel with the wraps it helps deliver faster, maximum results. You can use the Defining Gel everyday in between wrap applications. It's a great combo and very moisturizing.

Please don't hesitate to ask questions. I'm here to help you reach your weight loss goal and will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. My Loyal Customers are very happy with their results. I will be posting before and after pictures soon for you all to see!

Young Living Facial Wash Tutorial Video

Here is my first video. Finally! I've been wanting to post this for a long time. After figuring out how to use the Movie Maker software, tweaking, tweaking and more tweaking, it's finally up and running. A lot of people have been asking how to use essential oils to cleanse and moisturize their face so I created a video tutorial that shows you how easy it is to do this. You can also click here to read about the benefits, other tips and step-by-step guide about using essential oils for skin.

This routine that I use is the ONLY way I cleanse and moisturize my face on a daily basis! It is great for aromatherapy and also helps blemishes and is anti-aging.

I use Young Living essential oils and only these oils because of the quality and purity of the oil. They are 100% oil from the plants, flowers, herbs, etc. I will be writing a post about the company Young Living and how you can receive wholesale pricing and other discounts through the company. You can join the company for as little as $40 to receive life-time discounts and wholesale pricing. If interested please feel free to shoot me an email or post a question in the comment section.

Today was a long day of catching up on laundry and creating more Etsy crafts. I create Bird Mobiles for children's rooms.

After assembling another mobile and coming up with more designs, I went for a 3 mile run. After I run, especially later in the day the last thing I want to do is cook because I'm tired! So I put together a quick, nutritious dinner that took no time at all.

The Benefits of Lemon Water and a Giveaway!

Do you put lemon wedges in your water?

I’ve noticed a lot of people like to put lemon in their water when they are at restaurants but why do they do this? It adds flavor to water and people like the taste. But did you know that there are a lot of health benefits to drinking lemon water? Not only does it taste good but it’s good for you!
Here are a few of the health benefits to drinking lemon water:
  • Helps fight disease
  • Builds immunity
  • Balances your pH level
  • May be beneficial to your skin
  • Powerful antioxidant
  • Detoxifies your body and filters out toxins
  • Stimulates liver enzymes
  • May help speed up weight loss
Those are just a few benefits from drinking lemon water. The only problem I run into is that I have to keep buying lemons and I’m never home to use them before they go bad. My solution…Lemon Essential Oil from Young Living.

This tiny bottle fits perfectly in my purse and is easy to travel with.

Here are other ways you can use Lemon Oil:
  • Use 1–2 drops of lemon essential oil to remove gum, oil, grease spots, glue or adhesive, and crayon from most surfaces.
  • Combine 2–3 drops of lemon essential oil with water in a spray bottle to help cleanse and sanitize surfaces.
  • Place a drop of lemon essential oil on oily skin or blemishes to help balance oil glands and minimize oil production.
  • Add several drops of lemon essential oil to a chicken marinade for a delicious dinner.
  • Massage lemon essential oil into cellulite to help improve circulation and eliminate waste from cells.
  • Inhale lemon essential oil or place a few drops on a cotton ball to replenish your mind, body, and spirit.
  • Soothe corns, calluses, or bunions by rubbing lemon essential oil on the affected area morning and evening.
  • Add 10–15 drops of lemon essential oil to a gallon of carpet cleaning solution to help pull out stains, brighten carpet and rugs, and leave a fresh smell in the room.
  • Place a few drops of your favorite citrus essential oil on a cotton ball and put in the refrigerator to help eliminate odors.
  • Add lemon essential oil to your morning tea or breakfast shake for a refreshing pick-me-up.
  • Use it when cooking meals.
  • I use Lemon Oil in my water because it adds flavor and it’s good for my body. It comes in a 15mL bottle and is so easy to travel with. Only one drop of oil in my water adds so much flavor because it’s extremely concentrated. One kilo of oil is equivalent to 3,000 Lemons! So use it sparingly. I also use it on my face, in my breakfast shakes, and put in on my baked fish.
Please note: If you put lemon oil your water I recommend using a glass cup instead of plastic since lemon may leach the plastic from the bottle or cup into your water. Also, if you apply the lemon to your skin, do not go out in direct sunlight for 72 hours since it may bleach your skin. I apply it on at night and I haven’t had any problems.
Not all essential oils are the same. I am confident that Young Living has the best oils around because of how they distill their oils and their purity. Young Living essential oils are 100% pure therapeutic grade and safe to use.
