Refresh Your Workout (A Juice Recipe!)

Mighty Mint & Carrot Juice

This mighty juice has a zesty yet refreshing flavor and is packed with easy-to-find ingredients that you may already have on hand. I used this juice as a post-run nutrient-packed recovery juice this weekend. Although it’s getting chillier up here in the northeast, a good workout will still give you a good sweat and that means lost electrolytes, but this juice replenishes you!

Waves of Green Smoothie

Waves of Green

The summer season always has me craving pineapple. There’s just something about its refreshing nature that brings me right to the beaches of Hawaii (oh how I wish I was in Hawaii right now). It also helps make even the most bitter greens taste sweet. I’m normally a big fan of the more decadent smoothies, like my Chocolate Covered Goji Smoothie and the Coconut Almond Milk, but when pineapple is involved, it’s easy to get more green in my life

Banana Mint Chip Smoothie

Banana Mint Chip Smoothie

This tasty smoothie is loaded with potent antioxidants found in the cacao nibs, heart-healthy electrolyte potassium from the banana, bone-healthy calcium from the almond milk (but only if it’s calcium-fortified) and contains digestive properties from the mint leaves. Altogether this smoothie tastes like a healthy mint chip milkshake, so it makes for a nice mid-afternoon snack or as a part of any meal. Enjoy!

Meatless Monday: Crunchy Vietnamese Salad

Crunchy Vietnamese Salad

I have a thing for coriander (cilantro) and shallots (scallions) in everything at the moment (obsessed maybe?). This is a phase I go in and out of, but since right now I’m in, I decided to add them to this salad. It’s nutrient packed and delicious! Get the recipe.
