This will give you an incredible cleanse and boost of energy, but we can’t promise it will taste amazing. If you’re nervous about the flavor, we recommend adding banana or pineapple.
Tart, sweet, crisp. Apples and cranberry is already a killer combination. But add some celery, ginger, lemon and a bit of lettuce? Oh my. Who knew detox could be so delicious?
But as the title suggests there’s more to this ambrosial beverage than sensory delight. The apples will help regulate your blood sugar. Celery is anti-inflammatory and contains lovely vitamin K. In addition to vitamin K, romaine lettuce also brings K while lemon brings the C. And of course our good friend ginger aids in the digestion, as well as being a powerful anti-inflammatory.
Juicing pulls the fiber from your fruit and veggies, leaving you with plenty of nutrients to give your digestive system a bit of a vacation. That’s why they call it a detox!
Lots of people think that sushi is all about fish. I wonder sometimes if those people have ever actually been to a sushi restaurant: there’s all kinds of rolls and lots of them are meat-free. But while many of the ingredients in your typical sushi are raw, it’s always got rice in it. And that’s a bit of a bummer.
But sushi is really fun to make, too! And thanks again to the magic shape-shifting powers of zucchini, you can make your own tasty yummy sushi rolls with all the stuff you love and none of it that you don’t.
Instead of soy sauce, this recipe goes with a tasty ginger mango sauce. Mango and ginger! Yum.
It takes a bit of practice to get the rolling action down, but the learning experience itself is fun! Sushi is a great meal to make with friends.
Don’t be fooled by the name of this smoothie! Mango and peach might be the two central ingredients, but there’s a lot more going on here than just those two wonderful fruits! We’ve got bananas, we’ve got celery, we’ve got chia and coconut water. We’ve even got some turmeric.
And that’s just for the base layer! Some of the really fun stuff comes in on the next layer. Here we’ve got our spirulina, our hemp seeds, and of course, our matcha powder. All these high-energy, protein and nutrient rich foods make this an excellent smoothie to enjoy after a good workout.
Of course, you should feel free to throw on any extras you might want. Blueberries and pomegranates make for a fine topping!
