As kids, when my neighborhood friends and I (Jody) got bored, we’d start a list.
We’d write down one activity for each letter of the alphabet, A to Z, pick one that sounded fun, and do it. You better believe there were good times had by all.
Fast forward about twenty years and as adults we get bored too.
But rather than get creative we turn to distractions. Such as food (often the #1 go-to) alcohol, coffee, work, TV, Facebook.

With the hot summer sun, who doesn’t love the refreshing taste of ice cream?
We sure do. But we don’t love the bloat that sometimes comes along with yogurt or ice cream.
Today we’re sharing a gluten free, vegan, dairy free, and raw ice cream recipe.
Strawberry Ice Cream (DF, GF, V)
1 C strawberries
1. Peel, chop, and freeze bananas
2. De-stem, chop, and freeze strawberries
3. Once frozen, blend the bananas and strawberries in a high speed blender
Optional: Add a touch of water, almond milk, or coconut milk (the thick, fatty part!) to create a desired consistency.
Note: We use Vita-mix and Blend-tec blenders
Raw Zucchini Soup
Raw soups, in the summer time, are the ultimate quick meal.
And zucchinis make for a nice raw soup base.
4 raw zucchinis
2 celery stalks
1 Tbsp. Olive oil
water or broth to cover 1/4 of
Peel and chop the zucchinis and onion. Chop the celery. Place all vegetables into a high speed blender.

Go gluten free, dairy free, and sugar free and still enjoy every meal!
