Here is a simple recipe that we make in our house weekly. In our house we call it Healthyland Chocolate.
Mmmmmmm yes coffee you sexy, delicious thing you. Okay so I am not really that obsessed I don’t drink it allll day long. But I do enjoy one maybe once every two days and when I have it, I destroy it and it makes me do magical things. So do we have to just drink it to get its magical powers? No!! Coffee is just as sexy in foods too.
Getting creatitive in the kitchen doesn’t have to be slavibg away for 3hrs per recipe either, you would need a few coffees to survive if you had to last that long though.
So I have come up with 3 simple recipes that’s will get you jumping for joy when you eat them.

Being a registered nurse, I have seen charcoal being used in a very different way to whitening ones teeth. I have seen Health Professionals use it to reduce the effects of food poisoning, to cure hangovers, to treat poison victims and I have also seen it used on massive open wounds to reduce the smell.
About a month ago, I walked into a cafe and came across Charcoal powder to take orally. As I do, I instantly googled the product and seen numerous benefits from taking the product. It draws toxins from your body and if used correctly can be used to detox the body. So I thought why not give it a a go? I bought it. I feel amazing. But I’m not here to review that type of charcoal that I bought. I’m going to share with you about the teeth whitening.
When researching and gaining more knowledge on charcoal, I came across Eboniivory. An activated coconut charcoal teeth whitening product that was new on the market. During my research, I read information that you can use charcoal to whiten the teeth. I had tried once with my other product I had purchased, which was straight charcoal and it was so gritty and tasted foul. Eboniivory had created an activated charcoal that was specific for brushing your teeth. With the addition of organic orange, peppermint and Australian lemon myrtle oils, it was more pleasant to use and it wasn’t as gritty on the mouth. My mouth felt clean and fresh after every use.
EBONiiVORY teeth whitening kit is 39.95 comes with an 80g bag of activated charcoal and a bamboo eco friendly toothbrush (which I might add is super gentle on the gums).
So I have been using the product once a day for 7 days, and to tell you the truth, I’m actually thinking of replacing my toothpaste all together with the product. My teeth feel so clean after every use and my whole mouth feels so fresh too. My teeth are looking super white. People have always commented that my teeth have always been white, but due to my new #mumlife situation my coffee addiction hasn’t been as friendly on my pearly whites.
My teeth are looking very bright and white, but my white bathroom has definitely needed a clean more often. I’m not a careful person at the best of times when eating, so I have had a few spills. The packet includes instructions on how to keep your bathroom clean while using the product, but I decided to live life on the edge and not read the instructions until day 3 as I was too excited to hook into the product hahaha. Learnt the hard way. Positive note, it did make me clean my bathroom more often.
So this product is a win win for me. I highly recommend giving it a go.
