Jiggle Tea Smoothie, Lighting, and Moving!

July 7, 2011

This week flew by, didn’t it?! Since I’m working mostly from home all summer, distinguishing between weekdays and the weekend really doesn’t matter too much—except that more people are around me on the weekends, so I get less work done (a-Ok with me!). I’m still grinning at my garden pics—and there will be more to [...]

An unlikely but beautiful couple, plus pretzels that digest like vegetables

November 13, 2010

Beets and Butternut! This wouldn’t have been my first thought for a dinner pairing, but I saw a recipe yesterday for a mostly raw vegan beets and butternut dish, and it was really pretty (and I suppose I also believed that it would taste good!). I intended to make it exactly as the recipe said, [...]

A Gingerbread, Molasses Cookie, Pumpkin Smoothie…..Or Squash Incognito

Why have I never made this before?  Do you want some?  Come over—I’ve got plenty of squash and this smoothie is so good it should be enjoyed with other people who will appreciate its awesomeness! After you’ve blended all the above ingredients on low, [...]

Almost Local Smoothie — Squash!?!?

September 27, 2010

First, I’d like to share with you one of my favorite love notes… I’m going to make this again today and use extra squash—it could be squashy-er if you ask me. Last week when I was contemplating making this smoothie, my mom told me her grandmother used to make squash pies and tell everyone they [...]

Aloe Cooler

June 6, 2010

Have you ever eaten aloe?  I know, you’ve put it on a sunburn. But you really can eat it too (or drink it, in my case!). Let me tell you why, and then show you two drinks I’ve made with it. Aloe is a member of the lily family, and is one of the healthiest [...]

Weekend Greens

May 8, 2010

This weekend I decided I would focus on ingesting more greens—-smoothies and juice. Right now, I’m not growing any wheatgrass—I have to buy more wheatberries, and to be completely honest, I’m way too busy right now to do anything extra (except I am watching Swiss Family Robinson right now with Matthew and Joey in preparation [...]

Fit It In

April 28, 2010

Kristina and I have implemented a program called Fit It In, and it’s targeted toward getting people to move more—stretch and use muscles during the day (that don’t get used by just sitting at a desk). The idea is to pick a few exercises to do a couple times during the day. The benefits?  (1) [...]

Maca, My Love…

April 8, 2010

On Valentine’s Day, I made a smoothie that was so good it warrants mentioning again—it came from Sarma at One Lucky Duck. Purchasing from this store is one of my favorite indulgences—I wait till she sends out a “free shipping” email and then I buy lots of great stuff with the gift cards I bought [...]

If you’ve known me for a while, you may recognize this smoothie…it’s the Avocolada!  I have used a version of this in smoothie demos, and usually get mixed reviews—-people who don’t like avocados tend to go into it thinking they won’t like it.  And they don’t. I love it, even though this recipe made about [...]

Acai Coconut Almond Smoothie

February 18, 2010

Today’s smoothie features a powerful antioxidant, omega fat and amino acid source—acai.  You pronounce this “ah-sigh–ee” and it is a very trendy superfood lately.  You may have seen/heard commercials for cleanse and detox programs featuring the acai berry.  It’s good for you, but like everything else, it’s not magic!  In fact, a lot of those [...]
