Date and Turmeric Smoothie

Amazing Date and Turmeric Antioxidant Smoothie

The nutritional power of turmeric is well-established at this point, but it can be tricky to incorporate it into smoothies properly. That’s where dates comes in!

Detox Salad

Cleansing Detox Salad

We’re big on salads here, but I have to admit, I wasn’t always a salad lover. It wasn’t until I expanded my tastes and realized that salads were more than mere lettuce and carrots that I began to love them. This is one of the kind of salads that could make a believer out of anyone. This salad might be hard to put together off season, so make sure you know you’re getting your produce from a reliable source. Note, If you can’t find decent whole tomatoes, use grape tomatoes in the off months. They tend to be easier to […]

Power-Packed Apple & Avocado Smoothie

There are truly an amazing number of nutrients stuffed inside of avocados – they are a staple for anyone looking to eat a more healthy, plant-based diet. They’re one of the rare fruits that carry a lot of monounsaturated fat, which is something our bodies do require in order to function at their best. On top of all that, they taste pretty damn good too, and make a great addition to many kinds of smoothies. Here’s a new take on a classic Avocado-Spinach smoothie combo that has been popular for a while. I like playing around with smoothie ingredients until […]

Sage Blast Smoothie

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 […]
