4 Effective & Natural Ways To Relieve An Upset Stomach This Holiday Season

Just in case the holiday buffet table + pie overload + your favorite relatives = indigestion, heartburn, gas, bloating, or a stomachache, here are 4 effective ways to get relief quickly and naturally!

Nourishing White Hot Chocolate

Raw cacao butter combined with my sugar alternative makes a decadent and frothy white hot chocolate that tastes like it came from a high-end coffee shop. Made with raw milk and with the addition of my favorite collagen powder, it’s extra nourishing!

Sugar-Free Pumpkin Spice Cake {no grains, gluten, dairy, nuts, & NO Splenda!}

My sugar-free pumpkin spice cake does not contain even 1 questionable ingredient. This is the type of cake you can feel good about eating. Heck, I even serve this for breakfast! There’s no grains, gluten, dairy, nuts, and absolutely NO Splenda!

Asian Fusion Instant Pot Short Ribs

I have an irrational fear of unfamiliar cuts of meat. Yet there they were: the short ribs, lying in a brick of frost, daring me to grab them and attempt something.

Paleo Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Pancakes have never been my favorite breakfast food…Bacon and eggs and biscuits and gravy are my breakfast soul food. Until now. *These* Paleo pancakes have forever changed my mind. And I will eat these puppies any day of the week, any time of day. Forever and ever. Amen.

Low-Glycemic Apple Cinnamon Muffins {egg-free | gluten-free | sugar-free | THM:E}

This year, I ended my 32-year committed relationship with sugar. But I’m not missing out on sweets because I have a trick up my sleeve for a DIY blend that substitutes for sugar cup for cup!
