Dragon Fruit Zinger Smoothie

Most people associate smoothies with summer. To that I say – Not in a vegan’s life (or lazy person!), they’re a year-round thing. Smoothies are a great way to get some nutrition in without a lot of effort. Not to mention at this time of  year –  we can use all of the nutrition we can…

Orange Macaroon – A Vega One Smoothie

Depending on where I am in the month, sometimes my sweet tooth gets a little demanding. Often time, the sweets I am craving have little to no nutritional benefit and leave me feeling unsatisfied. Dried fruit is a good work around sometimes, but good organic dried fruit can sometimes be a bit costly, and can…

GT Dave’s Synergy Kombucha – Tue-Review!

Kombucha is great for a lot of things – including digestion, gut health & detoxification. If you’re about the soda life – it’s a great transition beverage to get you off the pop for GOOD! – with benefits to boot… (heads up – pop/soda has 0 benefit to your health. If anything, it’s detrimental –…

Peaches & Greens – A Vega One Smoothie

Hydro-Melon – A smoothie that hydrates from the inside

Hey pals! 🙂 I know I keep mentioning how dry fall is… but I can’t help but write about my own experiences. I am trying to move away from using lotion (using oil instead!) – and am finding that if I don’t get enough water in a day, I wake up feeling a bit dry….

Green Sour Slap Smoothie – Detox and De-bloat

I don’t know about you – but I get bloated from time to time. For me, there are a number of culprits – maybe it’s what I ate, maybe I ate too much, my digestion slows down, or maybe it’s coming up on my “time of the month”. Luckily, there are a lot of different…

Straw-Peary Kiwi – A thick and juicy smoothie

Strawberry kiwi – a combination that almost everyone can agree is delicious. This smoothie vibes off that agreeance and adds a touch of pear-licious texture (and fiber – *wink*) to the mix, that almost makes the consistency shake-like. This recipe makes about 500 mL worth – or approx 2 cups. Straw-Peary Kiwi  Ingredients 7 strawberries 1…

Carrot Apple Zinger! An Energizing Juice

This is by far one of my favorite juice recipes! It’s so darn delicious, and it really does have a “zing” to it! The ginger and carrot also really help avoid the bloating that often comes with consuming apples (at least in my case!) Carrot Apple Zinger Ingredients 5 carrots (this is up for debate…

A-B-C Juice!

When it comes to eating right, sometimes taste cannot be #1. I know that is sometimes hard to hear, but putting taste second and health first can really help you on your journey to good health. Now, I am not saying this juice does not taste good. Is it as delicious as pineapple juice? No….
