Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  It’s the meal that gives you the energy to start your day!  I always think of quick and easy meals I can create to give my body the boost it needs.  Well, toast is a fast way to start your day and it can be extremely healthy and nutritious if you know what to add to it.

Chelsea Crockett - Toast RecipesThe first recipe involves a piece of wheat toast with peanut butter and bananas!  Smear on a healthy serving of smooth or crunchy peanut butter, whatever you prefer. Take a banana and slice it up then put the banana slices all over the top of the peanut butter. Feel free to sprinkle a little cinnamon across the top of your toast, too!

Another recipe that I love is avocado toast. I take half an avocado and smash it up then add salt, pepper, and some red pepper flakes to it. Stir it all up and smear the avocado spread all over the top of your toast. It’s delicious! Feel free to add some bacon slices if you have some :).

My other favorite go-to recipe is scrambled egg with cheese and bacon on toast.  I love to take a fresh egg and scramble it in olive oil. Then, I add some cheddar cheese to the mix and stir it up. I toast my wheat bread and put the scrambled egg on top of it after it’s done! While I’m cooking all of that, I fry my bacon in the microwave. It comes out very crisp and I add it to my scrambled egg sandwich! YUM!

Bon appetit! – Chelsea

Coconut oil doesn’t get nearly the credit it deserves.  It has so many benefits for your skin and especially hair!  It has hair repair, shine, and growth power that can do wonders if you pair it with the right ingredients.  Here are three different recipes you can create to cater whatever problems of your hair you want to fix! 🙂 Chelsea Crockett - Coconut Oil

  • Hair Repair.  If your hair is dry and damaged and needs some help, then this recipe is for you!  All you need is one egg and a tablespoon of coconut oil.  Beat the egg, add in the oil, and apply the mix to your scalp and hair.  Rinse it out with cool water and follow by washing your hair with shampoo.  Putting egg in your hair might sound gross, but it’s definitely worth it!
  • Hair Growth.  I know I’m not the only one that’s looked for a product to aid in hair growth.  This recipe really does work and you can do it right from home!  Mix together a tablespoon of coconut oil and a tablespoon of Aloe Vera.  Apply this gel to all areas of your hair including everything from your scalp to your ends.  Let it sit for half an hour then rinse it out with warm water!      
  • Dandruff.  An itchy scalp is the absolute worst, especially if dandruff is the result.  Mix four tablespoons of coconut oil with one tablespoon of lemon juice.  Apply the mixture to your scalp wherever dandruff or itchiness is occurring.  After leaving this on for 15-20 minutes, shampoo and rinse your hair.  Do this before you shower and your head will feel much better!

Try it out for yourself and let it work its magic!

Lemme tell ya… cold weather can be rough on the skin!  As soon as the temperature drops, my face starts getting drier and drier.  I’ve tried different products that have worked for my skin type and others that have made it even worse.  I’ve found a few DIYs you can do at home that actually make a difference and cost almost nothing!

  • Egg yolk on your face might not sound like the most pleasant thing, but egg yolk contains proteins that help with shedding skin!  Mix together a teaspoon of olive oil and two egg yolks.  Apply the mixture to your face for about 5 minutes and rinse it off with warm water!Chelsea Crockett - Lemon Face Mask
  • Mix together a teaspoon of sugar and the juice from half of a lemon.  The sugar works as a scrub to remove any dead or flakey skin.  The lemon juice helps promote skin growth which leaves your pores smooth and glowing!  Scrub the mask on in a circular motion for about 10-15 minutes.  Then rinse it off!
  • Dry skin doesn’t only appear on your face.  If you have problems with dry skin on other areas of your body, put a cup of sea salt in a warm bath and relax in it for 20 minutes or so!  If you repeat this process 2 or 3 times a week, your skin will be detoxed, smooth, and hydrated!

            Hey insiders!

            As autumn rolls in, so does cold, windy weather.  This type of weather can irritate and dry out your skin.  Face masks and scrubs will be much needed, but also over-priced and very expensive.  Here are a couple DIY recipes that you can make at home and avoid breaking the bank!

            Pumpkin Face Mask.  For this recipe, you’re only going to need three ingredients: 2Chelsea Crockett - Pumpkin Face Mask teaspoons of pureed pumpkins (or canned), 1 teaspoon of organic Greek yogurt (milk can be substituted), and a half teaspoon of organic honey.  These products will help soothe and exfoliate your skin with the vitamins they contain.  To start off, take all of your ingredients and mix them together in a bowl.  Then apply the mixture to dampened skin and leave it on for 10 minutes.  Then rinse off with a warm washcloth.  You can repeat this process up to once a week!

            Cinnamon Face Mask.  Once again, this recipe only includes three ingredients: 2 tablespoons of honey, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon of nutmeg.  Mix them all together and spread it evenly on your face.  Leave on for up to an hour.  It’s a long time but the results are worth it!  Rinse off with warm water and repeat 2-3 times a week.

 

                                                            Enjoy!

Apple pie is one of my favorite desserts, but whipping one up whenever I want isn’t so easy! First you have to get all of your ingredients, spend lots of time making it, and wait for it to finish baking. Who’s got time for that? I wanted to share a quick Pinterest recipe that’ll cure your apple pie cravings in a few minutes!

Let’s start with ingredients. You’ll need Pillsbury crescent rolls, apples, brown sugar, pecans, and apple pie spice. Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F. Set out a pan lined with Chelsea Crockett - Apple Pie Bitesparchment paper and lay each triangle of dough on the paper. Take the brown sugar and the apple pie spice and spread it onto each crescent roll. Then, if you love pecans, sprinkle some chopped pecans on top of the sugar and spice! After that, you’ll need to cut up your apples like the picture above. Dip each slice in melted butter and follow by rolling it up inside the dough. Once all of your rolls are ready to be thrown in the oven, do so for only 10-12 minutes. How quick is that? Let them sit after baking for around 5 minutes and enjoy!

Let me know what you think of them!

XOXO – Chelsea

Food inspiration can come from a multitude of different things… and since it’s spring, fresh fruits will be sprouting up left and right. It’s time to think about some healthy spring snacks and treats. Where I live, strawberries will be ripe for picking in about one month.  Whether you get to go and pick them or buy them at your local market, strawberries are a delicious treat!  They are low in calories and fats but rich in nutrients, minerals, and vitamins.  Strawberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C which is a powerful natural antioxidant.Chelsea Crockett - Chocolate Strawberry Truffle Cake

Therefore, let’s talk about some awesome snacks made with this yummy fruit!  A mom of one of my friends makes a delicious truffle filled with layers of chocolate cake, chocolate pudding/whip cream mixture, and sliced strawberries.  It’s to die for!  Sometimes she just buys a store bought cake and crumbles it up to form the layers.  It’s one of my favorites!

Another snack that I love with strawberries may sound a bit weird… but don’t judge me until you’ve tried it :)! You take fresh strawberries and dip them in a little sour cream and then brown sugar… it’s divine!  It sounds gross at first but the combination of those ingredients is absolutely delicious.  You should give it a try!

Share your favorite treats with me in the comments below. I’d love to hear some of your favorite berry recipes for spring!

XOXO, Chelsea

For those of you that don’t know, honey is a cheap and excellent start for a recipe for healthy skin.  You may think of it as only an ingredient, but now you can put it to other uses!

Besides its great taste, honey has a wide variety of vitamins and minerals that soothes and hydrates your skin.  Along with moisturizing, honey also helps remove acne and other skin blemishesChelsea Crockett - Honey.  Putting it into action can be done easily at home.  Homemade recipes such as honey masks, lotions, and even hair products are easy to make and results are easy to get.  If you plan on whipping up your own creation, make sure you use raw, natural honey.  This will promote new tissue growth and help exfoliate your skin.  After washing off your honey, a small amount of it still remains in your pores, attracting moisture from the air and leaving your skin hydrated and fresh.  One neat thing about honey is you don’t need to mix it with anything!  Using a teaspoon of raw, natural honey and spreading it on your face will do the job.  Leave it on for as little as 10 minutes or as much as an hour.  After that, just rinse it off with warm water.  It should come off real easily and allow you to have beautiful, glowing skin.

Many natural substances can benefit your body and can be found in items you never would’ve guessed!  Honey is the new “buzz” for flawless and fresh skin!
