Hi everyone, Dr. Junger here.
This salad is a perfect side dish, and would be a highlight at your Thanksgiving feast. Bitter greens, like the ones found in this salad, are an amazing addition to your meals. They're teeming with nutrition, packed with fiber, and they help kickstart the digestive process. Most of us don’t eat enough bitter foods, so we miss out on their many benefits. Best of all, their taste is balanced by the sweetness of apple and beet. We hope you enjoy this beautiful and tasty way to include more bitter foods in your diet.
This protein-packed seagrass makes for delicious and nutritious comfort food, no matter what season it is. It's perfect as is or with some extra protein (chicken or nuts) as a meal, or as a side dish. Bonus: it keeps in the fridge for several days. When it comes to preparing healthy food, for us, it's all about eating locally and seasonally, so feel free to vary the vegetables used with whatever you find in your garden or at the market, and let us know what you think!
A super quick meal, perfect for the Cleanse, Clean Gut and Refresh. It's just barely cooked so you're getting incredible flavor and texture but still maximum enzymes and nutrients. Detox-friendly, tasty and ready in minutes, this recipe is one of my favourites. Modify with any vegetables or toppings you like; the possibilities are endless.
A chocolate treat that's reminiscent of Crunch bars but free of refined sugar and packed with lots of good stuff. Cacao has antioxidants, the hazelnuts provide some protein and the coconut flakes and oil are healthy fats that boost metabolism and stabilize insulin levels. A chocolate bar you can enjoy anytime; I would suggest trying different combinations, and doing both the dark and "milk" versions. Keep in the freezer since this is a quick recipe that doesn't require tempering, therefore it will melt at room temperature.
I’m loving two things these days: early morning workouts and a super quick post workout breakfast shake. Inspired by an Animal Collective song “Purple Bottle“, (it's nearly impossible to stay still when you hear it) and my favorite shake, I’ve put them together and created the "Purple Mason Jar", since I tend to drink my shakes out of mason jars. It’s as high-energy as the song, both in taste and the ingredients. This shake makes sure you get a large dose of antioxidants, good fats, plant-based protein, and an extra kick of greens. The tahini adds a great flavor and slows down the sugar release from the blueberries. Although berries in general are much lower in sugar and high in beneficial fiber which is perfect for all of our programs.
This is a perfect spring salad; a quick and easy side dish that's easier to digest due to the marinating process. Or you can steam or saute it too. Anyone with thyroid issues will want to cook the broccoli first. I tend to like mine steamed, which makes this nutritious powerhouse bright green and soft, but it's totally up to you. Either way, we know you'll enjoy this antioxidant packed salad.
This requires you to freeze fruit beforehand, so unless you can find frozen kiwis, you'll need to do some planning. But this is so worth it. This is a very adjustable recipe, you can always use any kind of frozen fruit and make delicious variations similar to the crazy red and blue slushies you used to find at convenience stores when you were a kid. But we like these ones; healthy "treats" that won't make your tongue turn weird colors!
