Peppermint Pattie Lollipops

by Arielle J on September 22, 2014

 

Arielle Haspel's Peppermint Pattie Lollipops using Vita Coco Coconut Oil

These Peppermint Pattie Lollipops
are a delicious, sweet and refreshing treat.

Vita Coco (the famed coconut water company)
just came out with coconut oil and lucky me, they sent me a
jar to taste test.

Lucky me..

When I look for coconut oil, I always look for these on the label:
– extra virgin
– raw
– cold-pressed
– organic

So I was ecstatic to find out that Vita Coco Coconut Oil is all of these!

Arielle Haspel of Be Well with Arielle's Peppermint Pattie Lollipops using Vita Coco Coconut Oil

They asked me to whip up three delicious recipes so here is the first:

Peppermint Patties in lollipop form!

One of my favorite desserts – sweet and chocolatey,
yet refreshing.

And best of all, one lollipop
is enough to satisfy your
sweet craving. In just one bite,
you’ll get crunch, sweetness and a
refreshing zing on your tongue.

Oh – and they’re gluten-free and dairy-free and SO easy to make!

Spirit Junkie Masterclass with Gabrielle Bernstein

Gabrielle Bernstein's Spirit Junkie Masterclass. Photo cred Arielle Haspel bewellwitharielle.com

This weekend I had the honor of attending
(and taking photos) at my friend and mentor,
Gabrielle Bernstein‘s Spirit Junkie Masterclass.

I was Gabrielle’s first coaching client
and have been one of her biggest cheerleaders since that
first lecture that I attended of hers in 2008.

Check us out in our “Expect Miracles” tanks from back in the day!!

arielle haspel and gabrielle bernstein in 2009

Gabrielle has been one of the most positive forces in my life –
and the sole reason that I have a jewelry business today.

When I got laid off from my job in 2008, she taught me the meaning of
self-love and self-worth and encouraged me to celebrate my freedom,
so I could follow my passion and dreams.

A few months after working with Gabrielle, I created The I Love Me Jewelry Collection.

Here are some of my fave photos (and behind-the-scenes snapshots) from this past weekend:

– If you believe it, you will give others permission to believe it too – Gabrielle Bernstein

– Share rather than sell – Gabrielle Bernstein
– Do what is joyful for you and THAT will make you more abundant – Gabrielle Bernstein
– Promote what you love like a love letter pitch – Gabrielle Bernstein
– The key to manifesting what you want is in the full release of “getting it” – Gabrielle Bernstein
– When you are moved by your message, the message will move masses – Gabrielle Bernstein
– You don’t need to try to be everywhere. Just be where it matters the most – where your family, friends and tribe is – Gabrielle Bernstein
– The people who make it, stick with it – Kris Carr
– Be organized so you can free yourself up to creativity – Kris Carr
– You don’t need to find your voice, your voice will find you. Don’t rush it. Take risks and breathe. – Kris Carr
– Obstacles are an opportunity to get out of the wrong direction and diverge into the right direction – Kris Carr
– Cry! You need to breakdown to breakthrough – Kris Carr
– Everything happens in seasons. Sometimes your business is in “Winter” so rest and renew. Sometimes your business is in “Spring” – watch out world! Know where you are and work with that energy. – Kris Carr
– Life cred experiences are the biggest credibility – Gabrielle Bernstein

Mini Watermelon, Feta and Mint Skewers

by Arielle J on September 2, 2014

watermelon mint feta skewers by bewellwitharielle.com

watermelon feta and mint skewers by bewellwitharielle.com

I served these at the Summer Cooking 101 Event
last week – perfect healthy party app and super easy to make.

Just up some watermelon, cut up some cheese,
put them on a skewer and voila!

I like goat or sheeps milk cheese (as opposed to cows milk) –
sheeps milk and goats milk tend to be easier to digest for most people because of the lactose content.

Mini Watermelon, Feta and Mint Skewers
Ingredients:

Watermelon, cubed
Feta cheese, cubed (goat or sheep)
Mint

Directions:
1. Place cube of watermelon onto tray
2. Place feta cube on top
3. Place mint on top
4. Stick skewer (or pretty toothpick) inside

Enjoy!

Tip: If you have leftover ingredients, throw it all into a bowl and serve it on the side. Eat for breakfast, or as a side for lunch or dinner the next day!

Summer Cooking 101: Recipe Recap

by Arielle J on September 2, 2014

amanda fashionable hostess and arielle haspel of bewellwitharielle.com at summer cooking event

Last week, my good friend, Amanda from Fashionablehostess.com
hosted a Summer Cooking 101 event for me at her house to celebrate the launch of my
cooking series on Glamour.com!

Here’s the invite she sent out:

summer cooking 101 invite

She recently moved and when I stepped into her apartment,
I knew that we needed to host an event together there.

She has the the most impeccable taste and her kitchen, especially, is just too pretty not to utilize!

We invited some well-known beauty and fashion bloggers
and I made some delicious summery recipes AND
even gave a mini cooking class!

To start, Amanda served the cutest Mini Champagne Bottles by Le Grand Courtage.

Um…notice anything interesting? My friend, Julia from Lemonstripes.com and I wore THE SAME EXACT top and
the iloveme ring!

In addition to champagne,  I served banana chips, jack fruit chips and my Maple Sesame Cashews for guests to nosh on at the beginning of the night.

Tip: Always have little treats to nosh on so when guests arrive and you haven’t served the food yet, they have something to keep their stomaches from rumbling!

P.S. How cool are Amanda’s bowls?

appetizers by arielle haspel

To complement my delicious, light and fresh dishes, Amanda had refreshing
wine pairings to pair with the clean eats by Santa Margherita.

FH-105-3504281628-O

First, Amanda welcomed everyone and
I thanked her for having impeccable taste, teaching me about time management
and, of course, for hosting.

bewellwitharielle and fashionable hostess event

And then we showed a little preview of my Glamour.com cooking videos to kick off the night.

Arielle of bewellwitharielle.com cooking class

After the preview, we got to the fun part – the cooking class!

Here is Katie from MeyersStyles helping me measure out the ingredients for the Pistachio Pesto.

Katie from Katie’s Bliss learned my trick to cutting peaches…. and
Lindsey from Caviar Taste Tuna Fish Wallet learned how to chop without
slicing off her well-manicured nails!

Arielle of bewellwitharielle.com cooking class

FH-246-3504296585-O

Here is a taste of everything that I served:

1. Peach Sangria Fruit Salad – one of my famous recipes featured on my Glamour.com series:
a light, refreshing summertime dessert
(AND healthy way to get a buzz)!
Peaches are in season in NY and they’re a summertime favorite,
so it’s a great addition to a summer dinner – and just so easy to make.

2.  Zucchini Bites with Pistachio Pesto and Honey Drizzle

For another light bite, I wanted to serve something filling, yet tasty and refreshing.

Zucchini is in season in NY, so I bought a mix of green
and yellow summer zucchini and made a fresh pistachio pesto to go with it –
a taste off of traditional Pine Nut Pesto
and an alternative to my Almond Pesto!

Zucchini Bites with Pistachio Pesto and Drizzled Honey

3. I made healthy “Kale Caprese Pizzettes” and “Kale Caprese Cups” – a cuter and healthier version of pizza!
Tomatoes are also in season at the New York Farmers Market –
not just red tomatoes, but yellow beauties too.
Instead of making a boring caprese salad
(typically just tomatoes, onions, mozzarella, olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette),

I made these with brown rice tortillas, kale,
fresh mozzarella and tomatoes in a light Italian vinaigrette
and the guests loved them!

Hostessing Tip: always make extra of everything! Instead of making extra pizzettes, I decided to just serve the caprese on top of kale.

Kale Caprese Salad

Then, I made Watermelon, Feta and Mint Skewers.

I wanted to serve another light, refreshing bite, but something a little filling…
and of course, something that looked cute!
A lot of people steer clear of dairy because of the lactose,
which makes their stomach ache, cramp or bloat.
To prevent any bloating at the party,
I bought local sheep’s milk feta cheese,
which has less lactose than cow’s milk feta!
These skewers are so easy to make: just cube up some watermelon,
add a cube of feta and a mint leaf, stick them into a cute skewer or umbrella toothpick and voila!

watermelon mint feta skewers by bewellwitharielle.com

Again, I didn’t want anyone to get hungry,
so in addition to the skewers, I put out a bowl of the skewers in salad form –
another great party appetizer to serve during the summer.

 When I entertain, I ALWAYS have the guests part with something
and I always think, home-made is best.

I found these cute mini mason jars
and packed them up with some home-made Maple Sesame Cashews. A cute little thank you
to for our guests to “treat themselves” on the way home!

 Amanda, thank you again for letting me cook up a storm in your gorgeous apartment!

Until my next event…treat yourself and be well!

one of my favorite yoga teachers of all time,
Danielle Tafeen Karuna of Provita Living.

We called the event “Tadasanas and Tapas” because Tapas in Sanskrit
means “the burning desire for transformation” and Tapas in Spanish
means “delicious light bites to eat!”

The event was held at Pier 54 on The Hudson River at 13th Street and West Street
just in time to watch the sun go down and then Danielle led a walking meditation
to a spot near Chelsea Piers on the grass, overlooking the water.

And Danielle’s husband, Kris Karuna DJ’d – how cute?!

I was busy preparing all of the food, so I didn’t get to stretch and zen out like everyone else
but yoga looked delightful and then after yoga, everyone enjoyed healthy, organic, farm fresh treats that I served!

Here is what I made:
Purple Pepper Cups with White Bean Puree
Watermelon Lollipops with Lime and Mint
Mexican Quinoa Cups
Chopped Italian Kale Salad

And here are some photos to recap the night – simply gorgeous (and FUN)!

Pepper Cups with White Bean Dip and Kelp Sprinkles

by Arielle J on August 26, 2014

peppers with white bean dip

Last week at my Sunset Yoga: Tadasanas and Tapas Event
with Danielle Tafeen of Provita Living,
I made this colorful, savory, healthy and easy-to-make recipe
for the guests.

Super simple to make and you can make anytime of the year
because all you need is a blender and peppers, white beans, olive oil, garlic, lemon and sea salt!

Peppers are in season now in NYC, and these purple
peppers were just too gorgeous not to use.

Found them at the farmers market- how beautiful?

Used these hot peppers as garnish for the dip

Decorative Peppers from Farmers Market

Feel free to make the bean dip and stuff it into a tomato, raw zucchini,
or use as dip for carrots, celery or even on top of pasta!

Benefits:
Cannellini Beans – high in protein and potassium – helps heart beat
Kelp- natural salt flavor, good for thyroid, skin, blood and blood pressure
Kale- cleanses the blood, strengthens the immune system, packed with fiber, iron and protein
Real Sea Salt- high in minerals and helps reduce blood pressure

Purple Pepper Cups Stuffed with White Bean Puree and Kelp Sprinkles
Ingredients:
4 Peppers, cut into quarters lie canoes
1 can white Cannellini Beans
1/4 cup grapeseed oil or olive oil
1/4 tsp sea salt to taste
1/4 cup water
3 cloves garlic
1 handful chopped kale or frozen spinach
optional – kelp (adds some color + high in minerals- good for thyroid and skin)

Ingredients:
1. Blend up white beans, water, oil, garlic, kale and sea salt.
(Add water to make the consistency thinner, if necessary)
2. Spoon out a dollop of dip on each pepper canoe
Voila!

Serves approx: 4-8

Be delish. Be tasty. Be well.

The Truth About Beauty Supplements on ELLE

by Arielle J on August 22, 2014

ELLE Magazine contacted me last week about my take on
Elle Macpherson’s Beauty Elixir powder.

Is it Be Well with Arielle approved?

Well…check out my thoughts here on elle.com.

In short, I believe that the best way to
feel great and look great is to exercise
daily, drink water, and consume whole foods,
like greens, seaweeds, plant proteins,
antioxidant rich foods, like seasonal fruits
and vegetables and alkaline-rich whole foods
like fresh limes, nectarines, and lentils.

This supplement may really make people super energized
more glowing, and is certainly easy to consume,
especially for busy people on the go, but I wonder
if it’s just a quick fix and how sustainable of a habit it really is for people.
