Cooking 3 meals a day has become the new normal for most families as we are all trying to find a healthy balance with home routines. And while we are trying to keep it all together; there are times we crave a good sweet treat! So, instead of reaching for the high calorie and added sugar snack. Let's think about making a delicious nutrient dense sweet treat inspired by Elle Macpherson.  

It's time to bring out the raspberries, avocados, almond butter and more..
Wondering what you will be making.. well make sure to take notes because this sweet raspberry mousse is a spoonful for your mouth!

Ingredients needed are the following:

3 cups mashed avocado
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon vanilla powder or extract
1/4 cup almond butter
3/4 cups pure maple syrup
1 1/2 cups raw cacao powder
1/4 cup fold filtered water
3 tablespoon chocolate protein 
Pinch of sea salt
Fresh Raspberries
and Cacao chips

Instructions on how to make this Sweet Dessert

Primero: In a food processor or blender, combine the avocado, coconut oil, and vanilla. 
Blend until smooth for about 2 minutos
Segundo: Add the almond butter, maple syrup, cacao powder filtered water, protein powder, and salt. 
Blend until nicely combined
Tercero: Get two-three bowls and add the mousse to the dish and top with raspberries

Well ladies it seems that by now everyone is aware about the Coronavirus outbreak. So, I am going to share some great resources you can share in your community, work and home. I want to be mindful about sharing informative educational resources, but please do not PANIC or be consumed with FEAR. One of the things we should always be doing is simply taking precautionary steps just like all the other outbreaks with Influenza, H1N1, Zinka Virus and more. So, with that said, the World Health Organization has created a great  resource page that is accessible to the public to view.

The foremost important thing is to the following below:

Season 2 Episode 1: Fertility Talk

No comments

Happy Monday!
It's time to drop a new season with new intentions. Get ready as the Saludable Latina Women's Health and Wellness Podcast is ready to bring more health topic conversations with real women and health and wellness experts. To get things started right, Lilia is opening up about her own personal story with an episode about Fertility Talk.
Fertility...Hmmm What does it mean? Well, many things really, but for today's podcast conversation it will be focused on trying to conceive. In this Episode, I talk about my personal experience as I got ready to see a fertility specialist, what labs where recommended, intimate screening questions the provider asked, sex life, and deciding to go on hormone therapy.
Although I don't give you all the details in this episode, I will be breaking up the topics into different podcast segments throughout the new season in hopes to create the dialogue, awareness and education.


(*Importante: As always all podcast episodes are for educational purpose only, it is not a substitution for medical advice or treatment. Please always consult with your medical provider in regards to a particular diagnoses or health treatment.)
Labs recommended by my medical provider for my fertility assessment were the following:
Chemistry Panel
Lipid Profile Hematology
Thyroid Endocrine
HcG Quant
You also have to excuse me as I mention an insulin panel which I might of mistaken with the Lipid panel.
Below are a couple of resources and even though I didn't recommend a book during the recording, the one below is a good read on how to have good prenatal nutrition.
