IMG_5667

I don’t know about you but I’m all about trying to make as much as I possibly can in my own home. From GRAIN FREE GRANOLA, to GRAIN FREE GRANOLA BARS, SMOOTHIES and DAIRY FREE PUMPKIN SPICED LATTES, and TURMERIC TEA LATTES, I want to be able to see and control what I am putting into my body. The same goes for ghee.  But, I understand that most people may not know what ghee is, never mind assume that it’s only for Indian food!
