Nice Cream Vibes

Recipe, BeautyGet Your Vibes

Happy National Ice Cream Day!

Who doesn’t love a nice bowl of ice cream?  And even as a Plant Based Nutritionist I enjoy a bowl of “nice” cream whenever I can but no ice cream for me. 

The Get Your Vibes version of ice cream is dairy free, and it's made with whole, real, ingredients.  I bet if people knew what was really in ice cream they would eat a lot less of it.  I know it would be horrible of me to ruin ice cream for you on National Ice Cream day with a list of horrible toxic ingredients and informing you that there is quite a bit of pus in dairy and ice cream you’re eating due to the amount of infections that dairy cows endure, so I will just link to those sources and let you do your own research.    

Now let’s get to the good stuff, Get Your Vibes Nice Cream!!!!  This recipe is so health that you could eat it for lunch!  Yes, Nice Cream for lunch!  The ingredients will have you feeling and looking your best, you will need a blender, but other than that no complicated ice cream maker.  The recipe and directions are listed below.  Enjoy and may this Nice Cream help you Get Your Vibes!

Ingredients:

Serves 2 (or if you’re like me, then serves 1, I can eat a huge bowl of this, lol)

  • 4 frozen bananas

  • 2 teaspoons of cacao

  • 2 tablespoons of wildflower honey or coconut nectar

  • 3-4 tablespoons of almond or peanut butter

  • ¼ cup of unsweetened almond milk or water (depending on your blender you may need more)

For the topping you can use whatever you like but this is what I enjoyed

  • 3-4 tablespoons of coconut flakes

  • 3-4 tablespoons of raw pistachios

  • 3-4 tablespoons of Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips

Directions:

Place all the ingredients in a blender (with the exception of the toppings) and blend.  Depending on the strength of your blender, pause it, scrape down the sides and continue to blend!  Transfer from the blender into a bowl, add the toppings and enjoy!

Not only is this recipe incredibly healthy but it’s cruelty free!  So on this National Ice Cream Day I hope you’re inspired to try a kinder version of this delicious treat!

Vibe of The Week: Dry Brushing

Vibe Of The Week, BeautyGet Your Vibes

We are going to change it up a bit and this week's Vibe focuses on one of our favorite self-care techniques, dry brushing!

When I first start working with clients there is a Get Your Vibes starter kit that I share with them and in that kit there is a dry brush.  Most of the items in the kit they know about, but the dry brush? I always get questions about, it never fails!  I get it though, it looks more like a back scratcher or a scrub brush for a bathtub, but it's actually such a simple way to improve your body's health. 

 

Dry brushing is an ancient technique that has the ability to detox our bodies in a variety of ways.  Dry brushing will increase our circulation and because of that it helps stimulate/detox our lymphatic system.  The lymphatic system is responsible for eliminating cellular waste products.  Miles of lymphatic tubules allow waste to be collected from tissue and transported to your blood for elimination, this is known as lymphatic drainage.  What happens when our lymphatic system doesn’t drain properly?  It leads to inflammation and disease, dry brushing helps prevent that.  It helps shed excess water and toxins, it also helps improves digestion and kidney function.  Dry brushing is great for proper distribution of fat deposits and this reduces the appearance of cellulite!

So how do we dry brush?  Start at the ankles and gently stroke upwards, go all the way up the legs, giving special attention to the back of our legs, and brush the tummy, rear end, all the way to the neck and from your wrists, making sure to get the elbows and over the shoulders.  If you can get as much of your back without straining yourself.  If you have any areas where you'd like your skin to look smoother then pay extra attention to it and brush over it a few more times.  You should aim to dry brush every morning before you shower, apply gentle pressure, remember you're brushing your skin, not scrubbing floors!  It's normal for your skin to feel a warm sensation and if it leaves marks then brush the skin softer.

You can find dry brushes at any health store, at whole foods in the whole body sections and online, amazon, has some great quality brushes.  Avoid synthetic bristles, one of my favorite brands is Yerba Prima, they are not a sponsor, just a quality product.  Our skin is our largest organ and dry brushing is one of the best ways to take care of it. Use the hashtag #VOTW and show us how you're vibing out!   Enjoy this self care technique and I hope it helps you Get Your Vibes!

Jade Rolling Vibes

The More You Know, BeautyGet Your Vibes

At Get Your Vibes, we are all about creating and building sustainable habits.  Whether it's dry brushing or drinking warm water with lemon every morning, we believe that the little things you do every day add up in a big way.   

Jade rolling is another beneficial habit that we love at Get Your Vibes.  A lot of people aren't familiar with it so we are here to enlighten you!  Jade rolling, is a form of facial massage, you take the beautiful jade stone roller and roll in an upwards motion on your face and neck area.  What this does is, increase blood circulation, assist lymphatic drainage,  evens out complexion and diminish the appearance of fine lines.  All of those benefits detox the skin, improves skin elasticity and (speaking from personal experience) it de-puffs the eye area, really well.  Jade, is a stone that naturally stays cold so when this is used on the skin in the morning it feels exceptionally good. 

We don't often realize how tense the muscles in our face are so this is an especially important to release tension in our face and improve our appearance.  So, how do we use this divine tool?  You can start by making sure the skin on your face and neck is free of any makeup, sunscreen and any product.  Using the large end of the roller start at the bottom of your neck and roll upwards,  Continue rolling, applying gentle pressure, going upwards along the jawline, cheeks, cheekbones and forehead.  Then using the smaller end start at the inner part of the eye are and roll outwards,  you are rolling away the puffiness in the under eye area!  Once I am done I like to rinse my face with cool water and then apply my eye cream, serum and moisturizer.  I do this every morning but 3-4 days a week is encouraged.  Another way to do this is to put on a face mask and then use the roller over the mask to really help the mask penetrate the skin.

You can find jade roller at some crystal shops and they are reasonable priced.  Another option is Amazon, they have a wide variety and prices as well. We hope this simple but effective tip helps you get your skin glowing and helps you Get Your Vibes!
