Golden Milk - The Key To A Good Night Sleep

I started making Golden Milk, which has the key powerful ingredient of turmeric. Turmeric literally is known to help almost everything. Here are just a few things that it can help with


  •  Anti-inflammatory 
  • Boosts immunity
  • Anti-cancer properties
  • Depression
  • Regulates blood pressure 
  • Improve memory
  • Gall-bladder
  • Improves IBS and IBD
  • Arthritis
  • Insomnia
  • Menopause
  • Reduces arsenic
  • The list goes on and on. Check out a huge list here with data to back it up.








When using turmeric the cucumin's bioavailabity (the magic inside the turmeric) 1000 times greater when black pepper is consumed during the same time. So please make sure you have black pepper when consuming turmeric. Like always with anything new, start small!

The golden milk I make consists of the ingredients below. With a busy household of 4 kids and a hubby I decided to purchase a turmeric mixture that already has black pepper and some other anti inflammatory ingredients. You can certainly make your own with the ingredients below, however I personally use Gaia Turmeric Boost restore, to have a slightly more Chai flavor in my Golden milk and it tastes amazing!

I make all of this in a pot on the stove. I bring it to a slight bowl and mix it well. Here's my concoction for a small cup for two

Water  8  oz
Hemp or Coconut Milk  8oz
Coconut oil  - 1 - 2 teaspoon
Turmeric & Black Pepper (from the turmeric boost) 2  tsp
Cinnamon  - sprinkle
Honey (added at the end)  1-2 tsp to taste


Since making this delicious Golden milk, my husband who normally wakes up every single night for a few hours has slept like a baby! Now asks me to make this for him 1-2 hours before bed and not only does he sleep through the night like a rock, it knocks him out and he wakes up with a ton of energy. If this can work for him, it can probably work for most people. LOL!

Here is a video recipe by Dr. Arjan Khalsa to show you how to make the paste and use this paste throughout the week, I suggest you watch. It's a bit different than how I make it but it it's perfect for those who already have the ingredients and are ready to make it now!






Cheers! Would love to hear how your Golden Milk turns out and see how you feel when implementing this wonderful beverage in to your life!

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me. WELCOME! First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today! Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core aga

5 Year Blog Anniversary and Giveaway

My blog was born March 10th of 2007, 5 years ago, with this  post  that started it all.  It all started 6 weeks after giving birth to my first baby.  The purpose of this blog was to share my journey of embarking as a new mother recovering from a C-section, lost strength, and fitness.  I wanted to share my struggles and perseverance in getting back to my pre-pregnancy self all while enjoying my new road in to motherhood.  I felt this was an easy and convenient way for friends and family that live all over the world, to see photos of my children and updates about our life.  What an amazing experience it  has been for me.  I never thought blogging my experiences would turn in to so much more.  Through my blogging I got the chance to connect with so many wonderful people around the world.  I never fully understood how powerful the stories would effect so many people.   It's truly been an honor.  Being able to continue to drive motivation and hope in to someones life by sharing my life
