Veggie-filled smoothies don’t always have to be green! We’ve created this carrot pineapple smoothie that is antioxidant-rich shake. The result is a beautiful orange color (with carrots as the vegetable source) and tropical flavor you’ll want to sip year round.
Whether you were more of an orange or apple kid, chances are juice has been a part of your diet since you were old enough to drink from a cup. As an adult, fruit juice is still undeniably delicious and makes a great mixer for brunch cocktails. But, it can also send our blood sugar into a tailspin. For this reason, we recommend drinking fruit juice in moderation on the 21-Day Clean Program. Green juice made from vegetables, on the other hand, offers many health benefits and can make a healthy addition to your diet both on and off the cleanse.

People have been using astrological signs to understand personality traits for centuries. If you’re familiar with the different characteristics of each sign, you might notice the bold and hardheaded tenacity of a Sagittarius or the comforting, empathetic nature of a Cancer at first meeting. In addition to explaining the inner workings of our minds and what makes us who we are, astrology can also potentially tell us about our health.
Food combining principles have been around for a long time. Generally, food-combining eating assigns foods to different groups. These are usually broken down into carbs and starches, fruits, vegetables, proteins, and fats. Some guidelines also classify foods as either acidic, alkaline or neutral. Food-combining diets specify how you should combine these groups in a meal.
