What better way to chill than with a cocktail made with cooling cucumbers and lime? Truth be told, I had no idea how to even make a cocktail until recently, when visiting friends introduced us to the art.
Elixers and Smoothies
Anti-inflammatory, blood sugar stabilizer, and cancer preventative – what more can you ask of this unusual drink made with turmeric?
Sangria is usually full of added sugar and sweet liqueurs. This is a lean and clean version with plenty of organic fruit.
Matcha is a great morning or afternoon pick-me up, especially paired with protein and healthy fats to keep your energy steady, nutrition high, and calories low. It’s even better on hot days because of the cooling cucumber and mint that is instantly refreshing.
I haven’t had a real soda in years, there are just too many artificial and chemical ingredients to mess with my metabolism, moods, and weight, so I make my own in just minutes.
This nutrient rich dressing is a bitter-sweet concoction full of flavor and color. Wonderful on arugula, or mixed with whole grains like quinoa.
Comforting and nourishing to the body, mind, and soul, this high protein hot chocolate is full of superfoods and antioxidants while light on the belly.
Have you tried, bubble tea yet? That slurpy slippery iced tea with tapioca pearls in it? Ok – I realize that 50% of the people reading this are going yum and the other 50% are probably gagging right now…
One of the most delightful pleasures I know is gulping down a nice cold beer on a hot day after some sweaty work in the garden.
Warmer weather ignites my desire for simple and vital smoothies. I am always experimenting to see what ingredients I can combine to create an easily digestible, nutrient rich experience of sensual pleasure. The kefir mango cilantro lassi is a new twist on an old favorite.
