Traditional Christmas Pudding with a Healthy Makeover

Traditional Christmas Pudding: With the holidays around the corner, many people have anxiety that the food at their Christmas dinner will suit their dietary needs. One Christmas classic is pudding, traditionally made with flour and lots of sugar. The recipe below swaps out all the nasties in favor of more wholesome ingredients. The custard is dairy-free, and the recipe can be made alcohol-free as well!


You can make up the fruit mix to a month before, but it can also be soaked for 24-hours if you’re making a last-minute pudding! The pudding should be made relatively fresh, either served the same or the following day.


For the Soaked Fruit 

  • 1 cup Medjool dates
  • 1.5 cups dried fruit (cranberries, raisins, cherries, apricots)
  • ½ cup of port wine or orange juice 
  • ¼ cup maple syrup 
  • ½ tsp allspice 


For the Pudding

  • 1 ¼ cup Medjool dates, chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • ¾ cups mashed (cooked) sweet potato
  • 2 1/4 cups almond meal
  • 1.5  tablespoons coconut flour 
  • 1.5 tablespoons tapioca flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 teaspoons allspice powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon cacao powder
  • Zest from ½ an orange + more to decorate
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (to grease the pan)


For the Custard

  • 250 ml almond milk (or any milk)
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4 tablespoons honey or maple syrup  
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca flour
  • Pinch of sea salt



For the Soaked Fruit 

  1. Let the dates soak in boiling water for 15 minutes
  2. Strain and purée the dates in a blender with the allspice 
  3. Place the port (or orange juice) in a sealed container with the puréed dates and the rest of the dried fruit.
  4. The fruit must soak for at least 24 hours but can soak for up to a month. If soaking for a more extended period, shake the container every couple of days and store it in a cool, dry place. 


For the Pudding 

The pudding should be served either that day or the following day after cooking.

  1. Soak the dates in boiling water for 15 minutes with the baking soda and then purée them in a blender
  2. Separate the eggs, and whisk the four egg whites with a hand mixer until they fluff up 
  3. Add the puréed dates and egg yolks to the mixture and continue to whisk for 60 seconds
  4. Add in the sweet potato purée and orange zest and whisk until smooth
  5. In a separate bowl, mix the rest of the dry ingredients with a fork
  6. Add in the dry ingredients mixture to the wet and whisk briefly until all combined
  7. Add in the soaked fruit and fold through using a spatula
  8. Grease a pudding bowl with coconut oil and fill the mixture, and smooth the top using a spatula
  9. Place the bowl in a saucepan, making sure that you can cover at least ¾ of the bowl with water
  10. Bring the water to a boil and cook the pudding for 6.5 hours, topping up the water regularly (since the water will evaporate) 
  11. Remove the pudding bowl from the saucepan and let cool for 20 minutes
  12. Run a knife around the pudding, and then invert the pudding onto a plate
  13. Pour the custard over the pudding before serving and decorate with fresh orange zest


For the Custard

  1. Whisk the milk and scraped vanilla bean in a saucepan over low heat until it gets near boiling 
  2. Using an electric whisk, mix in the egg yolks, sweetener of choice, and tapioca flour on medium until the mixture becomes thick (about 5 minutes)
  3. While the whisk is running, pour in the very hot milk and keep whisking until the custard forms and is smooth


Assemble and Decorate

The Christmas pudding can be made the day prior or ideally served fresh the same day. Serve by pouring the custard over the cake and decorating with anything you like; some ideas include fresh orange zest, some cacao nibs, a few cherries, or some shredded coconut!


A Final Note

It’s important to find balance in life and not worry too much about diet. And yet, understand that there are many ways to modify and upgrade foods to fit your overall goals. Old school holiday favorite recipes have come a long way, and there are so many healthier alternatives today. This recipe is a great example of enjoying an old favorite without totally abandoning your food ethos!

One of the easiest ways to stay on track during the holidays is to bring your own food to share. The sharing spirit of the holidays may even inspire family members who are on a different life path by seeing how delicious healthy alternatives can be.

Mulled Wine Recipe: Cheers to a Non-Toxic Holiday

Mulled Wine Recipe: Mulled wine is a Christmas classic, and believe it or not, it is actually a fantastic healthy post-dinner beverage. Loaded with spices and aromatics, a mulled wine can help you digest and relax after a big meal. Read on for the ultimate healthy mulled wine recipe!



Opting for a Natural Non-Toxic Wine

Mulled wine calls for wine, and as the more prominent ingredient in the recipe, it’s important to opt for a high-quality, natural, and non-toxic wine. Conventional wine is made with grapes that are sprayed with pesticides and herbicides. The residue of these pesticides is then fermented along with the grapes and when consumed, will add to your toxic load. Even organic wines in many parts of America test for the residue of dangerous chemicals like glyphosate, because of run-off and how present it is in the tap water system 1.

Some wine companies are not only organic but lab-test their wines for purity. Whether you’re making mulled wine or drinking wine as is, Dry Farm Wines make keto and paleo-friendly dry wines that are also sugar-free.

Alcohol is arguably the sticking point for many people when it comes to the health benefits of wine. Mulled wine, however, reduces the alcohol content significantly. Fifteen minutes of simmering reduced the alcohol content by 40%. If you want to reduce it even more, an hour of simmering will reduce it to 25% of its original alcohol content.

Aromatic Spices and Bitters

What makes mulled wine not only delicious but also nutritious is the abundance of aromatic spices and bitters. Although wine itself has many anti-aging benefits, the added ingredients to a mulled wine improve digestion, lower cortisol levels, and reduce stress.

Cinnamon contains antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, metabolism-booking, and glucose regulating properties. Using cinnamon is a great way to balance blood sugar levels, which are already low in a dry natural wine. Ceylon cinnamon contains more medicinal properties. 2

Clove is another antioxidant-rich spice that has potent antibacterial properties, also helps regulate blood sugar levels, and is rich in manganese. 3

Star Anise promotes digestion and has potent antibacterial and fungal properties. It is also rich in flavonoids and polyphenols, including linalool, quercetin, anethole, shikimic acid, gallic acid, and limonene. 4

Oranges are loaded with vitamin C, but the biggest benefits come from the oils found in the rind. These oils have antimicrobial, pain relief, weight loss, and antioxidant properties. The orange peel also provides a digestive boost. 5

Ginger is well known for its digestive boosting properties and also loaded with antioxidants that prevent stress damage. It helps a variety of ailments including heart disease, high blood pressure, and viral infections. 6

These are just some of the wonderful, warming, and medicinal ingredients found in the mulled wine recipe below.

When choosing your spices, it’s typically best to stick with whole or crushed spices. Although the ground flavor is much more aromatic and potent, they are very difficult to strain out. Unless you want to sift your mulled wine through a cheesecloth, avoid the finely ground spices.

With whole or crushed spices, you can also leave them in the pot, and just use a ladle to serve the mulled wine to family and friends when they come over!


Mulled Wine Recipe



  • 1 750ml bottle of natural organic red wine
  • 1 orange
  • 10 dried cranberries (with no added sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon of sliced fresh ginger
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 2 star anise
  • 5 allspice berries
  • Maple syrup to taste (optional) about 1-3 tablespoons
  • Garnish with a slice of dried orange (optional)


  1. Bring all the ingredients except for the maple syrup to a boil and immediately reduce to a low simmer
  2. Simmer for 10-15 minutes (or to the desired alcohol content)
  3. Strain the spices and whisk in the maple syrup to taste if you would like it sweeter
  4. Garnish with a slice of dried orange

2021 Holiday Gift Guide (and Discounts!) | Dr Pompa


Holiday Gift Guide! This holiday season, we’re equipping you with the best gifts (and discount codes!) for every type of coworker, friend, or family member that you may need a present for. In the spirit of giving, we’ve curated this list so that no matter what kind of person you want to surprise, you can give them something they will truly love while supporting their health. We've included some special discounts for some of these amazing products.


Dry Farm Wines

The Perfect Gift For…

Wine lovers, co-workers, and anyone you don’t know that well. Wine is loved by most and makes the perfect somewhat generic gift, but this time with a boost. Boost because Dry Farm Wines is unlike any other wine on the market!

Why Wine?

Drinking red wine in moderation has a variety of health benefits. Red wine is rich in antioxidants, like resveratrol, epicatechin, catechin, and proanthocyanidins. Resveratrol is one of the key ingredients that has been associated with an array of health-supporting properties, including regulation of blood sugar, reducing the risk of various cancers, and supporting heart health.

Why Dry Farm Wines?

All wines are not created equal, and in fact, most wines (even those certified organic) contain trace amounts of herbicide Glyphosate. The quality of the wine matters, a lot.

The Dry Farm Wine grapes are organically grown in nutrient-dense earth with a biodiverse ecosystem. They grow using a dry farming method that does not irrigate, relying only on the vines’ natural water sourcing. This method is better for the planet, the vines and produces a much more nutrient-dense fruit.

Dry Farm Wines are third-party tested by a certified enologist to ensure a variety of self-imposed high standards. Which include:

  • Statistically Sugar-Free. Every wine is fermented completely dry, with less than 0.15 grams per 5oz glass. This includes rosé, sparkling, and white wine.
  • Lower Alcohol. With the national alcohol average nearing 15%, their wines never surpass 12.5% alc/vol, with some as low as 7%.
  • Lower Sulfites. Their wines average a very low 39 parts per million. In the US, by law, sulfites are allowed in amounts up to 350 parts per million (ppm) in wine.
  • No Additives. In contrast, commercial wine companies may use up to 70+ FDA-approved additives, including thickeners and dyes, to create a shelf-stable product.
  • All Native Yeast. Their pure Natural Wines are only fermented with wild, native yeast growing naturally on grapes. Commercial wines are fermented with GMO lab-cultured yeasts.

The Holiday Deal

This deal is major because Dry Farm Wines generally don’t run promotions! They are offering discounts on both one-time purchases of 3, 6, or 12 bottles, as well as promotions on their temporary memberships, which send out 6 or 12 bottles after 3, 6, or 12 shipments!

Plus, Dry Farm Wines offers their ‘Happiness Promise’ on every bottle: if you don't like a wine for any reason, they will either replace the bottle or refund you in full, whichever you prefer!

Chai Bliss


The Perfect Gift For…

Chocolate lovers, foodies, and families! You can’t go wrong when it comes to a bag of cacao for someone's pantry, but this cacao combo is like nothing else on the market.

Why Chai Bliss?

There are few things better than cozying up on a cool holiday evening while sipping a hot beverage… Well guess what, now you can make your evening ‘cozy up’ ritual even more rewarding by drinking this powerful (and delicious) holiday beverageThat’s scientifically formulated to banish occasional brain fog while promoting happiness, energy, and a greater ability to focus… 

The Deal:

With discount code DrPompa or by clicking this link, you’ll receive 15% off your order.


The Perfect Gift For…

Tea lovers, wellness buffs, and athletes.

Why Superfood Blends?

Most people don’t have enough hours in the day to chop, juice, and drink green juice daily (not to mention clean the dang juicer afterward…). Luckily, some innovative products provide high quality, nutrient-dense superfood powders so that you can get all the benefits without the time or mess.

Since many people fail to get their daily intake of vitamins and minerals, superfood blends can help fill in the gaps and provide you with a whole-food supplementation that your body can absorb.

Why Organifi?

Organifi makes the cleanest superfood blends on the market that also taste great. The problem with many of these blends is that companies cut corners, use fillers, or the product itself tastes bad. With Organifi, you know that your powders are USDA organic, dairy-free, gluten-free, keto-friendly, vegan, and made of only the very best ingredients with absolutely no fillers.

Their wide range of products has something for any person you may be gifting for. The Green Juice or vanilla protein is a fantastic option for any athlete to speed up recovery and lower cortisol. Organifi Gold is a classic turmeric tea for anyone dealing with inflammation or stress ( basically everybody). And the Gold Chocolate is an awesome healthy replacement for hot chocolate for the kiddos!

Xalm Blanket

The Perfect Gift For…

Sleep lovers, the ones who work a little too hard, and for anyone who is dealing with anxiety or chronic stress.

Why a Weighted Blanket?

Weighted blankets are scientifically proven to promote deeper sleep by calming down the nervous system. They work similarly to deep pressure therapy, or when someone gives you a hug, whereby pressure on the body causes it to release “happy hormone” serotonin. Weighted blankets have been linked to alleviating various symptoms, including anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Plus, the cascading benefits of deep rest include lower blood sugar, weight management, better mood, and of course, more energy!

The Holiday Deal

$100 Special Launch Discount upon purchase!

Get 100$ off your Xalm Blanket in time for the holidays! Use this link. The blankets drop from 249$ to 149$ and have a 100-night trial guarantee for your money back.



The Perfect Gift For…

Busy people, athletes, meat lovers, or anyone into health and wellbeing.

Why Superfood Supplements?

In today’s on-the-go world, many people aren’t getting in enough nutrient-dense foods. With less time on their hands, busy people often reach for suboptimal snacks and caffeine to fill in the gaps of their lacking diet.

Using superfood supplements and nutrient-dense whole-food snacks as energy boosters help give the body long-term, sustainable nutrients that won’t lead to a crash a couple of hours later.

Why Paleovalley?

Paleovalley makes uncompromised quality products that feature properly grown, processed, and packaged ingredients to ensure that your supplements are nutrient-dense and bioavailable. They offer an array of whole food supplements, like a vitamin C complex, a turmeric complex, and a neuro-effect blend to support memory, focus, and mental clarity.

Paleovalley also makes whole-food 100% grass-fed beef or pasture-raised turkey sticks and superfood bars that are the perfect snack (or stocking stuffer!) for anyone on the go who doesn’t want to compromise in food quality.

An Infrared Sunlighten Sauna

The Perfect Gift For…

Saunas are the perfect gift for biohackers, anyone living with chronic illness or autoimmune disease, those who have low-UV winters, or anyone living in your household (… so that you can use it too!!).

Why Saunas?

The sauna's benefits are far-reaching, and this gift is especially relevant during the colder (low- UV) winter months. Some of the many benefits of infrared saunas include:

  • Sweat Out the Toxins: With deep infrared penetration, infrared saunas can increase blood flow and perspiration. Sweating is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health by eliminating toxic heavy metals, drug residues, and hormone disruptors.
  • Boost the Immune System: Heating the body from the inside can improve the immune system's function just like fever can. Therefore, regular Sunlighten sauna use can help reduce the incidences of cold and flu or even help you recover faster.
  • Deep Tissue Relief: Infrared therapy can increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and penetrate tissues to relieve aches and pain. Far-infrared sauna therapy has been shown to help with pain from fibromyalgia and autoimmune conditions, such as Sjogren’s, Behcet’s, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Boost Metabolism & Lose Fat: Near-infrared wavelength stimulates sluggish metabolism and improves fat burning for energy. Increasing core body heat can increase calorie burn, similar to exercise. Infrared saunas also help with the elimination of toxins that cause fat storage.
  • Improve Heart Health: Infrared therapy can help your heart work better by exercising the heart, reducing blood sugar, reducing blood pressure, and improving circulation.
  • Slow Down & Reverse Aging: Heat-shock responses are like exercises that help your body function as new. Also, stimulating your metabolism with our near-infrared spectrum can improve skin renewal and slow down aging.
  • Repair Muscles Faster: Many professional athletes use infrared saunas to recover from their training and injuries. The mid-infrared spectrum can best penetrate joints and improve flexibility. Far infrared therapy is known to help with muscle soreness, whereas near-infrared helps with tissue regeneration.

Why Sunlighten?

Sunlighten makes the absolute top-of-the-line personal saunas, which is important because like anything: quality can make the difference between a health-conscious or health-harming activity. Many lower-grade cheaper saunas are made using cheap glues and treated woods that heat up with the sauna and off-gas into your lungs. Since the saunas use electricity, it’s also important to purchase a quality sauna built with low-EMFs in mind.

Sunlighten’s EMF rating is third-party quality tested, and extensive third-party testing has been conducted to ensure all of their materials are safe and non-toxic as well. Their saunas are made using 100% premium wood throughout the entire cabin (no hidden plywood).

Kava Plex














Kava is an ancient root from Fiji that is just now being studied for its miracle properties. Kava produces a gentle numbing sensation in the mouth—and is a ceremonial drink for the islanders. Despite its relaxing properties, kava also has the advantage of inducing alertness in mind. Yet kava has zero caffeine. 

Like coffee, kava is considered a nootropic, which is a substance that benefits cognitive function and has neuroprotective properties. Of course, this is only scratching the surface of what’s possible with kava.

Most kava products are powders or tea forms with VERY low bioavailability. But there is one that stands above all others, called KAVAPLEX KAVAPLEX  is a unique, full-spectrum Kava oil that captures the full stress-relieving effects of traditional Kava to use anywhere… anytime!

KAVAPLEX supports:


  • A calm, positive mood
  • Enhanced sociability
  • Better memory and focus
  • Deeper restorative sleep
  • Neuroprotective pathways
  • A healthy inflammatory response
  • The body’s removal of senescent cells


It contains only: Kava root oil (Piper Methysticum)- is almost identical in chemical composition to the traditional Kava drink, which is considered the gold standard in terms of its therapeutic effects. And Sunflower oil (cold-pressed)- Used as a carrier to increase absorption of the Kava oil because of its high lecithin content.

I can’t think of a better gift to balance the craziness of the holidays! Grab one for yourself, too, and feel the stress around you melt away.

The Holiday Deal: Use the code ‘Pompa’ for 20% off.



LifeBoost Coffee Peppermint Mocha

The healthiest, tastiest cup of coffee using sustainable agriculture. Coffee can be a downright superfood, but unfortunately, many coffees are filled with mycotoxins and pesticides.

Lifeboost has very rigorous health and quality standards; before any batch is roasted, the coffee is tested in a lab to ensure several factors are in check, including; quality, molds, moisture content, consistency, and others. This beautiful, delicious, and healthy coffee makes a wonderful gift!


Pique Tea 














Fasting Teas are the support you need to skip the stress of snacking and stay on track.

✓ Curb cravings. Concentrated catechins support healthy ghrelin levels to combat hunger pangs.

✓ Support calm energy. Thanks to a synergistic blend of caffeine and the calming amino acid l-theanine.

Safe Sleeve













Did you know your electronic devices are one of the most intense sources of harmful radiation (EMF)? Especially since cell phones are held so close to the brain, the most precious and delicate organ in the body. And wireless technology keeps getting stronger and more threatening.

4G was stronger than 2G and 3G… and 5G is so powerful, it was initially strong enough to be classified as a biological weapon!

It’s madness that so many people will be holding 5 G-connected devices next to their bodies and brains. While exposure will be hard to cut out completely, one way to reduce the negative effects is with protective cases.

My favorite is something called SafeSleeve—which features FCC accredited lab-tested shielding technology that can block over 99% of RF and 92% of ELF radiation.


LAMBS Radiation Proof Apparel 













Inspired by NASA space suits, this collection of comfortable clothing and headwear blocks wireless radiation —all while looking and feeling incredible. 

The Faraday line offers:

  • 99% protection from EMFs caused by WiFi, Bluetooth, and cellphone radiation
  • Anti-odor and antimicrobial properties to eliminate smells and harmful bacteria
  • Lightweight, breathable, and wrinkle-resistant—perfect for everyday wear
  • Breathable, heat-regulating cloth that diffuses heat for maximum comfort

The Faraday line from Lamb is a no-brainer for everyday EMF protection and comfort. From hats to t-shirts to underwear—protect your precious body with EMF-resistant apparel.

RA Optics Blue Light Blockers

Using Ra Sleep Lenses, you can protect your eyes, brain, and nervous system from the disruption caused by blue light frequencies emitted by screens and light bulbs after sunset, allowing them to naturally relax, produce the super-potent antioxidant, anti-aging, anti-cancer repair molecule melatonin as the body is designed to, and, as a result, sleep like you've never slept before, and live as you've never lived before.

And, for those who work in an office, a hospital, or attend school, you can use Ra Screen Lenses during the day to block the harmful blue light from fluorescent and LED lights, as well as screens, which is very different from the healthy blue light emitted by the sun, and causes many people to feel eyestrain, fatigue, headaches, and even anxiety. By filtering this unnatural light, you can feel your eyes naturally relax and your nervous system chills out, allowing you to enter a state of calmness from which you can be genuinely happy and productive in whatever you're doing.


The deal: Enter code goodhealth, and receive 15% off your Blue Light Blockers!


Purity Woods Skincare

Elastin is what keeps your skin looking smooth and soft, yet firm. Unlike the other skincare protein called collagen, elastin production completely stops as early as puberty.  With aging, the elastin you do have starts to diminish. And as elastin loses its strength, your skin loses the ability to “bounce back.”

This is a key reason you can get wrinkled and loose-looking skin on your face, jowls, and neck, visible pores, and an overall deflated appearance. Elastin degradation is also the reason too many folks look older than they feel.

That’s why it’s vital to protect your elastin as much as you can, especially as you age.

And that’s why our friends at Purity Woods added revolutionary maple leaf extracts to their bestselling USDA Certified Organic Age-Defying Dream Cream

Keto Holiday Recipes: 10 Mouth-Watering Dishes to Brighten the Season

Keto Holiday Recipes



The holidays are generally known to be a time of indulgence, but it doesn’t have to be. With modern adaptations to classic holiday recipes, you can stick to a generally low-carb meal plan and still stick to your health and wellness goals.

Diet Variation

It’s worth noting that occasional ‘indulgences’ are not a bad thing. Long term strict ketosis is not actually beneficial to most people. When we restrict carbohydrates chronically over a long time, the body can actually adapt by down-regulating the metabolism.

By incorporating variation in your diet, you can actually keep your metabolism firing. This is a similar concept to cross-training in the gym instead of sticking to only cardio or weight training. Throwing in high-carb days reassures the body that ample fuel is coming its way and can continue to burn fat for fuel.

That being said, the holiday period often extends itself for a couple of weeks, with many indulgence opportunities. The key to ‘diet variation’ is keeping a general low-carb, keto-style diet with occasional high-carb days and occasional complete fasting days.

Knowing that food choices can often be out of your control (lunch at an aunty’s or dinner at a friend's house), it is best to stick to keto when you can. Pair that with a fasting day here and there, and you can slide through the holidays without feeling sluggish or off-track from your health goals!


10 Keto Holiday Dinner Recipes

Crispy Goat Cheese Balls


  • 2 logs of goats cheese (1bout 16 oz)
  • 2 pastured eggs
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ cup walnuts or pecans
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp flax meal
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 450F
  2. Line a baking sheet with baking paper and spray olive oil all over it, or drizzle 2 tbsp and make sure it covers the whole tray base.

  4. Add in the walnuts and pulse a few times until they are roughly chopped (small but not totally pulverized).
  5. Whisk the eggs in a bowl and set aside.
  6. Roll out small balls of the goat cheese (16 oz should make about 20 balls).
  7. Dip each ball in the egg, and then roll them in the no-bread crumb mixture.

  9. Bake for about 8 minutes until golden brown.
  10. Carefully remove from the tray with a spatula as soon as they come out of the oven to prevent them from melting and losing their shape.

Mashed Cauliflower

  4. Add in the parmesan (or savory yeast), as well as the optional heavy cream, and blend again until smooth.

Cheesy Broccoli Gratin


  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 2 cups of your favorite cheese (or cheese blend), shredded. We recommend a combo of sharp white cheddar and gruyere!
  • 3 tbsp olive oil or grass-fed butter
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F
  2. Cut your broccoli into small florets
  3. Steam the broccoli until slightly tender but still crispy, about 5 minutes.
  4. In a bowl, toss the broccoli in olive oil, making sure it is well coated. Add in salt and pepper(s) and toss again.
  5. Place in a baking dish that fits the broccoli together snug in the dish.
  6. Pour the cream all over the broccoli, and sprinkle the cheeses all over the top.
  7. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, until the top becomes golden brown.

Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus


  • 20 (or so) asparagus spears
  • 8 strips of pasture-raised, nitrate-free bacon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Black pepper (to taste)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F
  2. Trim the base of the asparagus to remove the hard part
  3. In a bowl, toss the asparagus in olive oil and use your hands to make sure they are completely coated.
  4. Cut the bacon strips into thirds, and wrap the bacon around the center part of each asparagus spear.
  5. Place the spears on a baking tray lined with baking paper, making sure to leave space between each asparagus so that there is no overlap.
  6. Crack fresh black pepper all over (to taste).
  7. Bake until the bacon is cooked through, about 35 minutes, flipping halfway.

Charred Garlic Brussel Sprouts


  • 2 lbs Brussel sprouts
  • 3-4 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F
  2. Cut sprouts in halves or quarters, depending on their size. If they are big, opt for quarters. You can also do a mix of the two.
  3. In a bowl, toss all the sprouts in olive oil and add in the garlic powder, sea salt, and black pepper.
  4. On a baking tray lined with baking paper, spread out the sprouts so that there is no overlapping.
  5. Bake for about 40 minutes, flipping them (give the tray a good shake) halfway through or until they begin to become a crispy golden brown.

Cauliflower Paleo Stuffing

The key for stuffing is actually not to stuff the turkey at all. Bake the stuffing as a side dish and serve it, but fill the actual turkey with aromatics like lemon and herbs. You can also drizzle some of the turkey drippings into the stuffing and toss it before serving, but by not stuffing the stuffing into the bird, you avoid it becoming a pile of mush.


  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 1 large onion
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • ½ cup celery
  • ½ cup carrot
  • ½ cup your favorite nuts (like pecans or almonds)
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 handful of fresh parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F
  2. Chop the cauliflower, onion, celery, carrots, and parsley roughly
  3. Place all the ingredients into a food processor and blend on high until all the ingredients form a crumbly mixture
  4. Spread the stuffing well spaced out on a baking tray and bake for 25 minutes.


Roast Turkey

A perfectly cooked turkey doesn’t have to be complicated. A few tips include:

  1. Opt for a high-quality turkey, which means raised ethically, and fed a natural organic diet.
  2. The rule of thumb is to buy about 1.5 pounds of turkey per person so that an eight-person dinner would call for a 12-pound turkey. This will factor in for some leftovers!
  3. If you’re buying a frozen turkey, it needs at least an entire day in the fridge to thaw (even for a 4-pound turkey), so consider thawing it two days in advance just to be safe.
  4. Don’t baste the turkey, which helps keep heat in the oven, ensures an even cook (and can avoid it from needing to cook it longer and drying it out).
  5. The general rule is 20 minutes in the oven per pound (so 4-hours for that 12-pound turkey), but use a thermometer to check when it is finished. It is cooked at 165 degrees F, and you can measure the temp by leaving the turkey in the oven and poking it deeply with a food thermometer. Once it reads 160F, remove it from the oven and let it rest outside of the oven covered in foil for the last 5 degrees. Make sure to let it rest for 15-30 minutes before serving.


For Turkey:

  • Wild and organic turkey (1.5 pounds per person eating)
  • 1-2 granny smith apples
  • ½ cup of cranberries (dried or fresh)
  • 1 large onion
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 4 or 5 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons of grass-finished butter (or olive oil)


For Butter Sauce:

  • ⅓ cup of grass-fed butter (or olive oil)
  • 3 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F/ 165°C (for standard ovens), or 300°F/ 150°C (fan-forced).
  2. Pat down the turkey with a paper towel.
  3. Seed the apples, and chop the apples, onion, garlic, and lemons into quarters.
  4. Stuff the cavity with lemon, onion, garlic, apple, cranberries, fresh thyme, fresh rosemary, a few cracks of salt, and pepper.
  5. Using your fingers, tuck a few pats of butter or a good drizzle of olive oil under the skin of the bird, just above the cavity (on the top side of the turkey).
  6. Make a butter (or olive oil) sauce to coat the outside of the bird by melting the butter with the dried thyme and rosemary, and painting it on the entire exterior of the bird (wings and all), using a brush. Make sure it’s well coated.
  7. Place the turkey in the center of the oven, uncovered, cook for about 20 minutes per pound (but use a thermometer as your actual gauge for when to take it out).
  8. The turkey is done once the food thermometer reads 160F, but keep an eye on the turkey as it cooks since every oven is slightly different. Once the bird is well golden, if the reading doesn’t hit 160F, cover it with foil to prevent it from getting any browner.
  9. Let the turkey rest for 15-30 minutes before serving.


Candy Cane Trifle

Note that trifles have many components, and this healthy keto version requires making your own jelly, sponge cake, and cream– which ideally takes 2 days. So you may want to prepare the jelly and sponge the day prior and then assemble it the day of.

  1. 2 cups heavy cream
  2. 6 egg yolks
  3. 2.5 tbsp monk fruit sweetener
  4. 2 tsp vanilla bean powder or extract
  5. 1 tsp cinnamon
  6. ½ tsp nutmeg
  7. 1/2 tsp sea salt

For the Jelly:

  • 1 cup organic raspberries (one 6oz. clamshell pack) or frozen raspberries
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (1-2 lemons)
  • ¼ cup cherry juice
  • 1/2 cup water

  • ⅓ cup toasted almond slivers
  • 1 sugar-free candy cane


For the Sponge Cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F
  2. Melt the butter and set aside to cool.
  3. Whisk together all the egg whites and cream of tartar using a hand blender until very fluffy
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, vanilla, ricotta, and lemon juice until smooth.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients.
  6. Combine the two bowls of the egg mix and dry ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  7. Fold in the egg whites slowly into the mixture.
  8. Drizzle the cooled butter into the mixture and slowly fold it in as well.
  9. Bake for 30 minutes in an 8-inch pan, or until the top is golden brown.
  10. Cool completely in the fridge until ready to use for the trifle.

For the Custard:

  1. Bring the cream to a boil in a pot with the salt, vanilla bean, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and then remove from heat.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk egg yolks and monk fruit until smooth.
  3. Add the egg mixture into the pan and whisk over low/ medium heat until well combined and thick (3-5 minutes).

For the Jelly:

  1. Place the raspberries, lemon juice, cherry juice, and water in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Transfer the raspberry-lemon mixture to a small saucepan over medium-low heat.
  3. While the mixture warms, quickly whisk in the gelatin.
  4. Whisk until the gelatin is well incorporated, and the mixture is thickened.
  5. Pour the mixture back into the blender and blend for about 10 seconds.
  6. Add the stevia, taste, and then add more if desired.
  7. Pour the mixture into a 6 x 9 in. glass or ceramic baking dish.
  8. Place in the refrigerator until completely chilled and set, about 3 hours or overnight until ready for use in the trifle.
  9. Cut the jelly into 1inch squares to use in the trifle.

To Assemble:

  1. In a medium to a large clear glass bowl, you will layer the sponge cake, jelly, and custard, aiming to make 3 layers. So use up about ⅓ of each for each layer. You don’t have to totally cover the base of the bowl with any of the ingredients. or make it “perfect.” Simply break off a few pieces of the sponge cake to layer the bottom, add in a layer of gummy, and then a layer of custard, and repeat.
  2. Whip your 1.5 cups of heavy cream with the 2tbsp of erythritol until it forms a whipped cream; serve it on top of the trifle with sliced strawberries, toasted almonds, and crushed candy cane.

Shortbread Cookies


  • 3 ¾ cups blanched almond flour
  • ½ cup + 1 tbsp slightly softened salted butter (take out of the fridge and leave at room temperature for 10 minutes before creaming)
  • ¾ cup monk fruit sweetener
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean powder
  • If using unsalted butter, add 1/ 2 tsp of sea or Himalayan salt


  1. Using a hand mixer, beat together the erythritol and butter until it becomes light, fluffy, and creamy. Start slowly to make sure the mixture doesn’t go all over the place– and work your way up until it’s creamed. This process should take 5 minutes on the nose (too little or too creamed will lead to crumbly cookies)
  2. Slowly add in the vanilla and almond flour, continuing to beat it with the hand mixer until your batter is formed. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as you go to make sure all the ingredients mix.
  3. Form 1 inch balls and flatten them slightly with the palm of your hand on a cookie tray lined with parchment paper. The dough will be crumbly but should form well when molded with your hands.
  4. Keep an eye on your cookies from 10 minutes onwards since they can burn very quickly (it all depends on how hot your oven gets); total bake time varies from 10-12 minutes until lightly golden brown.
  5. Let the cookies cool *completely* until consuming; this is very important because the cookies become a shortbread texture only once cooled.



  • 3 cups almond, cashew, or coconut milk (unsweetened)
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon powder (plus more to top)
  • 1.5 tsp nutmeg powder
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cinnamon whole quill
  • ½ cup monk fruit sweetener
  • ½ cup dark rum (optional)


  1. Whisk the egg yolk and sweetener (monk fruit or erythritol) until creamy/ frothy and set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, heat the nut milk and cream, and stir in the cinnamon (powder and quill) and nutmeg.
  3. Bring to a boil and then take the nut milk and spices off the heat.
  4. Straight away, start ladling in the hot mixture into the egg mixture, whisking continuously. Do not stop whisking, or the mixture will curdle.
  5.  Once fully incorporated, add the mixture back into the saucepan and whisk on medium heat for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and strain into a bowl.
  7. Stir in the rum (optional) and vanilla
  8. Set in the fridge (takes about 3 hours), and serve with a dash of cinnamon on top!

DIY Natural Deodorant Recipe

Body odor is an embarrassing situation many of us have dealt with at least once in our lives. While there are many commercial deodorants available, many people are unaware of the natural options that are available. This article will discuss how a person can solve issues with body odor by making their own deodorant using natural ingredients.

Final Thoughts

Why Use Natural Deodorant?

There are several reasons why using natural deodorant instead of commercial varieties is a healthier choice. For starters, the harmful ingredients used in unnatural deodorants have been linked to a variety of health issues. Most commercial antiperspirants contain aluminum salts, which have been shown to cause both DNA alterations and epigenetic effects, which could play a role in the formation of breast cancer. [1]

Many deodorants also contain triclosan, an ingredient used to kill bacteria. Studies on lab animals indicate triclosan reduces thyroid hormones, ultimately leading to “deficits in reproductive endocrine and function.” [2]

Another potentially harmful ingredient is parabens, a preservative used in commercial deodorants, toiletries, and cosmetics. Studies indicate parabens can accumulate in the body, particularly in the breast. Studies are ongoing to identify a potential link between the accumulation of parabens and breast cancer. [3]

In addition, antiperspirants block the pores, which prevents a person from sweating. Sweating plays a key role in good health: it is one of the ways the body rids itself of toxins through the skin.

How to Make Natural Deodorant

You can easily make homemade deodorants using natural products in stick or spray varieties. Unlike commercial deodorants, which could be harmful to the body or skin, natural deodorants are healthier and good for the body. In the next section, we will list two deodorant recipes with ingredients and instructions on making them.

Natural Deodorant Stick Recipe

Natural deodorants typically consist of the following ingredients:

  1. The base (shea butter, coconut oil)
  2.  A powder mixture (baking soda)
  3.  Arrowroot powder
  4.  Essential oils (based on individual preference)

Recipe #1 (Clink on the links to order any ingredients you may need):


  • Place the shea butter and coconut oil in a Mason jar
  • Slowly melt over low flame (do not overheat)
  • Remove from flame and let cool
  • Add baking soda and arrowroot powder, then mix thoroughly
  • Add the 15-30 essential oils of your choice (you can use a combination of your favorite essential oils)

Final Steps

  • Pour all ingredients into a deodorant bar or airtight container
  • Use a popsicle stick to get contents out of the container
  • Experiment with various amounts to determine how much you will need to apply daily (can vary from person to person, but the average is a pea size or slightly more)

Bonus Tip: Another popular ingredient to use in natural deodorant is ½ teaspoon of activated charcoal. Activated charcoal can absorb smells and help absorb excess moisture.

Natural Deodorant Spray Recipe

In addition to natural deodorant sticks, sprays are also available. However, the spray is different because it is 100% liquid: it doesn’t contain the base ingredients of shea butter and coconut oil used in the stick.

 Here is a natural deodorant spray that you can easily make at home:


  • 2 tablespoons of vodka
  • 2 tablespoons of distilled water
  • 2 drops of essential oil (rose)
  • 2 drops of essential oil (jasmine)
  • 2 drops of essential oil (orange)
  • 1 drop of essential oil (lavender)
  • 2 ounce, dark-colored spray glass bottle

Note: Other essential oils can be used per individual preference. See a variety of essential oils HERE.


  • Pour water and vodka into a dark-colored spray bottle
  • Add the essential oils to the mixture

Note: Using the highest proof of vodka will increase the potency of the natural deodorant.

Non-DIY Options for Natural Deodorant

In addition to creating your own natural deodorant, you can also find pre-made deodorants that are more natural-based. 

Final Thoughts

Commercial deodorants contain many ingredients such as aluminum, parabens, and triclosan that may be hazardous to a person’s health. To avoid these potential dangers, the popularity of natural deodorants has increased over the years. In addition, many find it fun to make their own deodorant with their favorite essential oils.
