pumpkin spice latte donuts by arielle haspel

Tis the season of pumpkins,
pumpkin pie and pumpkin spice lattes!
But watch out!

Some of those delicious sounding “Pumpkin Spice Lattes”
may have over 50 grams of sugar in one cup and
absolutely no pumpkin in the ingredients!

To get a healthier pumpkin spice latte fix,
I’ve made these delicious, easy-to-made
Guilt-Free Pumpkin Spice Latte Donuts!

Gluten-free and (almost) vegan.

Maple Carrot Fries

by Arielle J on October 16, 2014


Maple Carrot Fries by Arielle Haspel of bewellwitharielle.com using vitacoco coconut oil


These Maple Carrot Fries
are the perfect sweet and healthy side dish
for chicken, fish and meat.

They’re a great alternative to regular fries and sweet potato fries.
They’re super healthy, so simple to make and so delicious!

Adding in sweet vegetables to your diet, like carrots
is a great way to curb your cravings for not-good-for-you sweets.

Not to mention, coconut oil is anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial,
so cooking with it is great for post-workout dinners and may help clear up your skin and make it glow from the inside-out!
Your body will definitely love you back for eating these.

Maple Carrot Fries by Arielle Haspel of bewellwitharielle.com using vitacoco coconut oil

14 Ways to Use Coconut Oil at Home on BET

by Arielle J on October 3, 2014

 Yesterday I went on BET Centric with Lola Ogunnaike and Shannon LaNier

to chat about the benefits of coconut oil – in your body and on your body!

Coconut oil is gaining popularity in the kitchen, but also on people’s bedside stands.

Why? Because it’s so versatile. It’s anti-bacterial, anti-fungal so you can use it topically to cure blemishes, diaper rashes on babies and even cure cystic acne! It’s also made up of medium-chain triglycerides, so it’s low in cholesterol and energizing – won’t weigh you down like other oils. Not to mention, it tastes like the tropics – DELISH!

A few of my favorite ways to use this versatile and delicious oil:

On Your Body:

- lather on your face before bed as moisturizing night cream

- smooth onto dry, chapped lips

- tame frizzy hair and fly-aways

- massage into cuticles

- massage into skin like a body scrub and apply in the shower: mix with some sea salt or brown sugar

- apply to hair for a moisturizing hair mask

- use to clean teeth (aka oil pulling): put 1 tbsp in your mouth and swish in your mouth for 10-20 minutes while you’re getting ready in the morning. Don’t gargle with it, just swish it, pull it through your teeth and the oil will attach to bacteria and then you spit it out. Great way to reduce bacteria and plaque in your mouth

***and…if you’re young, close your eyes for this one:

- use as an all natural lubricant! (*wink wink)

In Your Body:

- use for baking healthy donuts

- use for eggs or omelettes

- use for sweet potato fries

- use for baking or “frying” healthy chicken fingers

-  use to spread onto toast (it’s a healthier, lower cholesterol alternative to butter)

- put a dollop in your coffee or tea as an alternative to milk

Watch the episode of me chatting about coconut oil on BET here.

P.S. I have a cooking show for Glamour Magazine! Watch it here and follow me on instagram at @bewellwitharielle for more quick and healthy tips.

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!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Granola

by Arielle J on September 20, 2014

 

chocolate chip cookie granola by Arielle Haspel of Be Well with Arielle for vita coco coconut oil
This Chocolate Chip Cookie Granola is the perfect,
healthy pre-workout breakfast.

Sweet, crunchy and filling using oats, maple syrup & organic coconut oil.

I make a big batch,
store it and use it for weeks! You can
even eat it as a snack with some nuts or on top of yogurt.

Tastes better than most store-bought granolas, which are typically made with not-good-for-you canola oil and
sweeteners. Not to mention, it’s super easy to make.

Vita Coco sent me some of their new
organic coconut oil
to taste test and whip up some recipes so I had to make this:

chocolate chip cookie granola by Arielle Haspel of Be Well with Arielle for vita coco coconut oil

Chocolate Chip Cookie Granola
What You Need:
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup mini dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cups maple syrup (or coconut palm sugar, brown rice syrup, raw honey)
1/2 cup Vita Coco coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper
2. Mix coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract together and then add in dry ingredients and mix well.
3. Spread mixture onto cookie sheet evenly
4. Bake for 15 minutes total (check oven and stir every 5 min)
5. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving

Serves 6

Voila! Enjoy!

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

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!
