Coming out of 10 years of chronic illness has made me look at life in a different way. I’ve realized that things happen for us, not to us; something new comes into our lives or something happens to make us change. For me it was Lyme disease, PCOS, hypothyroidism, leaky gut, and so much more. When I had to cut out gluten, dairy, soy, sugar, and corn, I thought my life was ending but I learned that we can come out of any struggle in our life on the other side of it and prove to ourselves that we can not only survive, but thrive.
Our recipes are simple to make, easy to prepare and delicious to eat. Ingredients are straight forward, fresh and easy to find. Most of the recipes are gluten and dairy free and fit well with the programs. This section is small at the moment but will grow with time. Please enjoy.
What if you could drink your way to glowing skin? When it comes to your body, especially your skin, you are what you eat. Eating a diet full of phytonutrients, vitamin C, and healthy fats can give you that glow. One of the most delicious and nutritious ways to do that is to whip up this Healthy Glow Smoothie.
We’ve upgraded the ever-popular avocado toast with homemade gluten-free bread and a poached egg, on top, for added protein and nutrients.
We now know that the yolk contains most of the egg’s nutrients, so it’s about time we change your mind about egg yolks (if we haven’t already)! The yolk contains choline, which is essential for the functioning of all cells, especially brain cells. Egg yolks also contain antioxidants; B vitamins, including B12; vitamin A; iron; selenium; biotin; phosphorous, and other various trace nutrients. Egg whites, alone, lack many of the nutrients that are found in the yolk, a nutrition powerhouse.
When you are gluten-free and craving a sandwich, this collard greens wrap recipe could just be the next best thing since sliced bread. A Southern staple, collard greens are packed with Vitamin A and K as well as a healthy dose of folate, manganese and calcium. A combination of fresh vegetables, healthy fats, and a tasty spread, like hummus, will make this sandwich alternative a lunch
We recently upgraded the Cleanse Shake formula with organic pea protein and organic fruits and vegetables for added phytonutrients. Like before, it can be easily mixed in our blender bottle with water and/or nut milk as well as blended with nutritious ingredients for a filling smoothie. Whether you are a daily Cleanse shake lover, a 2-week Cleanse devotee, or are trying the Cleanse for the first time as part of our Spring Cleanse Workshop, here are 3 new recipes to enjoy.
Spring has been unusually cold, and the chilly temps have us craving something sweet and nurturing. This thick, creamy, chocolatey smoothie bowl really hits the spot (without the guilt).
Like other smoothie bowl recipes, this requires a little bit of prep the night before to create a really thick base in the morning; from there, it’s as simple as making a standard (yet extra delicious) smoothie.
Seems like breakfast smoothie are all the rage these days, so it got me thinking, why not come up with a thick luscious creamy and, of course, healthy recipe that would make the perfect breakfast in bed treat to serve someone you love (or yourself).
The smoothie bowl requires a little bit of prep the night before so that you have a really thick base to start with in the morning; otherwise, it’s as simple as making a regular smoothie.
The weather has finally begun to warm up and all around us nature is waking up in full glory after its winter slumber. It’s the prettiest time of the year, however, if you are an allergy sufferer, it can also be a cruel time of year. So load up on foods rich in Quercetin, a mild natural antihistamine found in many foods including apples, blueberries and kale. To get the full impact, combine them in a fresh, delicious green smoothie.
How I love Spring, the colors… the atmosphere, sigh! These gorgeous pink, purple and green flowers I had inspired me to create some killer toasts with the very same colors. The taste is so refreshing and it’s SO easy to put together. Whether you just want to treat yourself to a beautiful breakfast or snack… or you’re entertaining for the Queen of England, I’ve got you covered with these babies. All you need are: Peas, lemon and tahini to make the base, I realize not everyone has lavender and I was one of those people up until like a month ago, but ever since I spent the $10 on Amazon to get a bag of it, I think my culinary street cred went up at least 20 points. Just sayin’ — buy yourself some, it’s just fancy as frick. And radishes?! They’re everywhere right now. I was lucky enough to find these tiny French ones, but good ol’ regular radishes will do just fine. The toast is up to you, whatever you normally use. And voila… you have yourself a gorgeous appetizer or dish you can feel proud of.
For those allergic or sensitive to nuts–or if you just want to try something new–here’s a great smoothie recipe for you to give a morning boost.
Sunflower seed butter is high in healthy fats, thyroid supportive selenium, and trace minerals like magnesium that support all of the bodies functions. It’s a great alternative to nut butters and can be found in health food stores – be sure to read the label and make sure you get one that is unsweetened. Combine that with our new upgraded Cleanse Shake, antioxidant packed blueberries and phytonutrient rich spinach and you’ve got yourself a super nutritious breakfast or snack!
