Banana Apple Chia Seed Smoothie

Banana Apple Chia Seed Smoothie

by Matt
If you’re craving a delicious smoothie that’s also power-packed with nutrients and protein, look no further. This tasty banana apple smoothie is all that and more. I actually developed this smoothie as a “meal on the go” kind of thing, so it inevitably found its way into our Detox program as a meal substitute, because it had everything we were looking for. Ingredients 2 cups sweetened almond milk 1 banana 1 carrot (peeled) 1 apple, cored 2 tbsp. chia seeds 1 cup crushed ice Place all of the ingredients into your blender / emulsifier of choice ( our longrunning go-to […]

Balanced Morning Detox Smoothie

by Matt
A detox smoothie should be packed with nutrients and leave you feeling refreshed and energized. Well, if there’s one word I’d use to describe this smoothie, it would be “energizing.” Not only is this green smoothie designed specifically to give you the energy you need to start your day, it is the perfect addition to any detox regimen. We’ve added it to our special 9-day Detox Plan, which you can check out here. Ingredients ¾ cup ice ⅔ cup almond milk or cashew milk 1 ½ cups kale (loosely packed) 1 stalk of celery ½ fresh apple (cored) 1 tbsp […]

Return to Balance

by Matt
In order for us to function at our best, we need balance. Every day, we’re constantly expending emotional, mental, and bodily energy managing what goes on around us. Many everyday activities force us to unwittingly give our energy away, leaving us feeling drained, foggy, and agitated. Yoga techniques are big on balance. In fact, ancient traditions all over the globe harped on the importance of living a life centered on balance. If you look at nature, for example, it hinges on a delicate but powerful balance that acts as a base state and point of reference. When nature is in […]
Morning Balance Yoga

Morning Balance Training Routine

by Matt
I’ve found that days are always more productive when they start with an energizing workout routine. Finding the right one to kick the day off with can be somewhat difficult, though. While you don’t want to tire yourself out before you’ve even had breakfast, you also don’t want to go too easy and miss out on strengthening your body. After practicing Yoga over a decade, I’ve experimented with more than a few “morning” routines, to say the least. Instead of choosing one and running with it, I decided to dig deeper and develop a routine of my own that’s served […]

Sage Blast Smoothie

by Matt
While researching the most effective smoothie recipes for detoxing, I came across many that used cucumber as a primary ingredient. I had never before experimented with cucumber in smoothies, so I figured the veggie deserved a bit more looking into. It turns out cucumbers are a detox gem. First of all, they are made up of over 95% water. That alone is enough reason to eat it, as most of us don’t get enough water as it is. But cucumbers have a ton of not-too-common compounds, including anti-cancer lignans, as well as the phytonutrients known as cucurbitacins, on top of […]
Watermelon Vegan Smoothie

Refreshing Watermelon Smoothie

by Matt
Nothing else quite quenches our thirst better on a summer day than a watermelon, so it makes perfect sense to put it into a seasonal smoothie. Despite its universal appeal, watermelons don’t exactly get a lot of love in the smoothie recipe department though, compared to other fruits like blueberries and bananas. It’s a shame, because they are more than just a delicious addition to a smoothie, they are also extremely healthy, and full of nutrients that are somewhat hard to find elsewhere. For instance, they соntаіn high levels of Lycopene, an аntіоxіdаnt thаt stymies various cancers, such as cervical […]
