Berry Hemp Antioxidant Superfood Blast Smoothie

Hemp is one of my top health-promoting foods, and I include it in my diet in every way I can with homemade hemp milk, hemp seeds, hemp protein powder, and hemp oil. Hemp seeds are rich in vitamins, minerals, healthy plant based fats, antioxidants, fiber, live enzymes, and natural chlorophyll. Hemp is also an amazing source of Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids, and contains powerful anti-inflammatory properties, which helps to repair tissues, particularly after exercise. Hemp…

Raw Green Fiend Superfood Smoothie from Navitas Naturals

Today is all about wheatgrass. Don't groan, because I'm going to share some top tips for including it in your smoothies so it doesn't make you gag. Let's be honest, wheatgrass shots taste pretty funky. I drink them, but they're not my favorite thing on the green buffet. Enter the awesome Navitas Naturals freeze-dried wheatgrass powder and we're saved. Wheatgrass powder is extremely mild in flavor, so you can add 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon to most smoothies without even tasting it. I…

Blueberry Hemp Superfood Smoothie from Navitas Naturals

I continue my love affair with Navitas Naturals by sharing their delicious blueberry hemp superfood protein smoothie. This smoothie was featured as part of Navitas 60 Second Smoothies video series. You can watch Julie Morris whip up this smoothie here. As Julie says in the video, blueberries are packed with antioxidants. Just 3 tablespoons of hemp protein powder contains 16 grams of easily digestible protein, the flax powder adds healthy fats and fiber, and the yogurt adds protein and…

Superfood Green Machine Smoothie

This Sweet Superfood Green Machine smoothie is a staple recipe in our house. I chose this blend in response to the thousands of emails I receive from people asking how best to incorporate green powders into smoothies without gagging. Wheatgrass powder is relatively mild in flavor, so 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon goes into most blends with sweet fruits unnoticed. Chlorella and spirulina are a lot more assertive, and with that pungent aquarium aroma, it's best to start with 1/8 teaspoon and…

Almond Maca Chiller Smoothie from Navitas Naturals

The powders are highly concentrated, freeze-dried products produced from high quality organic ingredients. Navitas is a family-owned company based in California. They have…

Raw Mint Chip Superfood Green Smoothie from Julie Morris

This mint chip superfood green smoothie is another little gem from the Superfood Smoothies cookbook. Julie says, "Tucked beneath a very convincing ice cream-like flavor, a wealth of beneficial spinach awaits you in this smoothie. It’s so good it almost makes a person wonder why spinach isn’t used in all minty treats. I love how the cacao nibs provide a bit of dark-chocolate crunch without being overpowering." Don't be put off by the high price of the Navitas Naturals superfood…

Roasted Parsnip Mash with Caramelized Onions and Herbs from Stacey Aswad

My mother-in-law Sandra and I made this roasted parsnip mash with dear friend Stacey this past weekend, and it was so good I had to share it with you. You may remember Stacey (host of VO Buzz Weekly and the face of Walt Disney World) from the Candied Maple Pecans post. Stacey is an amazing cook, and a vegetarian. We all had a blast laughing, chopping, and tasting together. I really enjoy cooking with friends. You always learn from anybody that you cook with, and whenever I cook with…

Carrot, Beets & Greens Liver Cleansing Juice

It has been a huge week of reflection for me about how I can move through the world in a more mindful, sustainable way. My friends and I participated in Sustainability News & Entertainment's second annual Trash On Your Back 5 Day Challenge. This was an Earth Day initiative hosted by Diana Dehm. Last year they had 20 participants, this year there were over 400 from all over the world, and we hope next year there will be thousands. Participants included the Seattle Mariners, Climate…

California Strawberry Commission: “I Heart CA Strawberries” Field Trip

I LOVE strawberries. I cannot get enough of them!¬†After battling life-long candida and following the Body Ecology diet (where strawberries are one of those life saving transition foods) and living an alkaline lifestyle, strawberries are a staple in our house because of their low sugar content. Even through strawberries taste decadent, sweet, and delicious, 1 cup of strawberries contains just 50 calories and 8 grams of sugar making them a dynamite food for those of us on low sugar…
