Gluten-Free Instant Pot Mongolian Beef

Well I’ve officially started cooking a few meals here and there with my instant pot, and one of the ones I’ve been dying to try is Mongolian Beef.  Mongolian beef is hard for me to eat because it’s typically has gluten in it and is loaded in sugar ( you might as well eat a Snickers bar).   I scoured the internet to find something, but there wasn’t anything out there.  SO I decided to make my own. What you’ll Need:…

Keto Chocolate Mint Protein Shake

One thing that I’ve noticed is the surge of nut-based protein drinks.  The protein content seems to continuously include better quality protein. However, with the increased protein comes increased sugar.   I tend to make those nut-milk based protein shakes at home and take them with me everywhere.  I do this so I can control the sugar content in it.  One of my favorites to make is my chocolate mint protein shake.  It includes a whopping 21g of protein and NO…

Facial Toning with Bella Lip Appliance

With the ever-evolving beauty community, one thing is certain, that we all want to look young (er).  Taking care of our skin, particularly the skin on our face is a priority for many people.  Whether it be through lasers, fillers, scrubs, face lifts, and facial devices. One of the devices I see on the rise are facial toning devices.   Why are they on the rise? They are on the rise because the face, much like muscles in the body, also…

Keto Pumpkin Cashew Chocolate Cups

With the plethora of sweets that are about to come upon us this holiday season, I wanted to make something that could help minimize the sugar in-take.   AND especially for someone like me who can’t really eat pumpkin pie (it’s super rare to find a GOOD gluten-free pumpkin pie) this is such a great alternative.  The added bonus is that it has NO SUGAR!  Oh, and I also put in a little bit of collagen so technically you will enjoy…

CTA Techlicious Event

..A few weeks ago, I had the honor of attending a CES Tech Review with CTALA and Moms LA at the Video Audio Center in Westfield Century City.   I joined 40 other influencers to learn about some of the innovative technology that was presented at CES that is now hitting the shelves.   I was seriously impressed by some of the technology that was presented.   Here is what I saw: *Photo Credit MOMSLA Sony Bravia A9M TV The first thing I…

ALOVE-ly Greek Dish!

I always like to explore new things that are outside of my comfort zone, and cooking is no different. Exploring different options for recipes are what I’m known for. I usually have to modify a good percentage of them due to some of my food sensitivities; and one dish I’ve always wanted to make was a good old fashioned Greek meal! I’m Egyptian, so there is a lot of overlap with the Mediterranean foods, but the tastes differ slightly.  …

You’ll Only Go Nuts for the Twitter Party!

Did you just read that?!?  What the heck did that mean?  Well, let me tell ya.  I am going to be hosting an amazing twitter party alongside a brand called “Don’t Go Nuts”.  The entire purpose of their line is to cater to individuals who have severe nut allergies. The founders of this company are parents who had a child with a life-threatening nut allergy.   If you or a loved one has such a severe allergy to a particular food,…

Why Kyo-Green Helped My Gut

I’d like to take a minute to be real about my greens.  I have to admit I don’t always have them every day (shocker I know).  It’s not to say I don’t like them, sometimes I’m simply out of them, and other times (which is super rare) I don’t have the stomach for them.  Sure, you can cook up some peas and asparagus with dinner, which is still better than no greens – so don’t get me wrong there.   But…

Enhancing the Immune System with Plant Sterols

With the on-set of food allergies, compromised immune systems, and illnesses overpowering vaccines, we could definitely use a little more immune support.  Have you ever wondered why autoimmune diseases and inflammation are on the rise?   The causes of that can simply be endless. Which I won’t even get into because that in itself can be a long-winded discussion about the lack of FDA regulation and lobbyists.  But I won’t go there, and want to have this conversation veer towards a…
