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.
In honor of today, this delicious winter soup contains ingredients that are traditionally lucky for the New Year. All around the world, beans are a symbol of abundance. Eating them around New Year's is a good omen for the year ahead. Protein packed, with just enough spice, this soup is a perfect winter meal. It’s also in keeping with another New Year’s tradition, leaving a bit of your leftovers on the table at midnight, to guarantee a plentiful year ahead. This is fitting if you're beginning a cleanse or healthy routine, to leave the table satisfied but not overstuffed.
The entire Clean Team wishes you all a very happy New Year, abundant in the things that matter most; good health, love and gratitude.
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!
You'll have one word for this summery treat: YUM. Loved by kids and grownups alike, this is a decadent tasting yet incredibly nutritious meal that works anytime of the day or night. A great way to energize your morning, kickstart your lunch-on-the-go, or makes the perfect cleansing dinner. Switch the blackberries for raspberries or peaches or blueberries for an equally yummy blend, blend it up and go have a blast!
