Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

Dairy-Free Homemade Hot Cocoa


I recently found out that neither of my daughters can have any milk whatsoever (not w/out getting sick or having rashes). If you have a lactose intolerance or milk allergy, you know how hard it is to find pre-packaged sweets that don't contain milk.

At Christmastime hot cocoa is a staple in my home, but it's impossible to find it at the grocery store without milk in the ingredients. I also like to avoid the extra trip and cost of buying dairy-free hot cocoa mix at the health-foods store. Luckily my local grocery store carries dairy-free carob baking chips, so I've come up with a dairy-free hot cocoa recipe that is so decadent, it's like drinking chocolate syrup. You can thin it out with more dairy-free milk if you want to, but why on earth would you want to do that? Merry Christmas!

Ingredients:
*makes 4 large servings

-5 cups dairy-free milk (unsweetened & plain-flavored) ex: soymilk, rice milk, coconut milk. I used plain unsweetened soymilk.

-2 cups dairy-free carob baking chips

-1/4 cup powdered sugar

Instructions:

1. Pour milk into a small saucepan and heat on the stove on medium high until warm (a minute or two)

2. Add in carob chips and stir frequently with a whisk until melted.

3. Add in powdered sugar and bring to a simmer, continuing to stir (a few minutes).

    1. It's been challenging. Have to make a lot of homemade stuff for the girls. As for myself, well I make myself sick on cheese every now and then because it's worth it to me! Lol.
