Banana Turmeric Smoothie

I make this banana smoothie with mango, peanut butter, and turmeric often, especially during January.

It fills me up, and I feel satisfied. There’s a protein element, and of course, the anti-inflammatories in the turmeric are beneficial as well. It’s also delicious. I think you’ll like having this recipe in your arsenal. It also makes a delightful late afternoon pick me up or even a dessert!

A healthy start 2021

Welcome 2021! I must say I have never been so happy to greet a new year!

As always, I will be launching the year with a healthy mantra. I have been promoting healthy January, otherwise known as Juice January, for the past 9 years. Can you believe it?

2015-12-01_14-57-40

It was all about juicing for most of those 9 years. We have come a long way baby!

This year will look a little different. I think that eating healthy is the way forward. I will be sharing some recipes and some new rituals I have introduced to my day. I will be sharing what I discovered in 2020. I started a yoga practice and meditation practice. I try to do yoga at least 5 times a week, there are so many choices online so find what’s best for you. However, I found a practice that is perfect for me, it is geared to every type of mood or physical issue. My son who lives in Austin, TX turned me on to Yoga with Adriene  I find her not intimidating which is great, her poses are doable and help me physically as well as mentally.

Additionally, trying new recipes was part of my daily routine. I will be sharing a few juice recipes, but mainly I will be talking about how to introduce calm and patience into your life.

2020 taught me to be much more mindful and to be kinder. I am hoping that the challenges we have been through in 2020 allow us to step back and see how change can be a better way forward. I hope you all tune in to 2021. Wishing a happy healthy 2021 to everyone!  Love you guys.

Screen Shot 2019-02-26 at 7.33.33 AM

Watermelon is ripe and ready this time of year which means it’s time for Keith Robinson’s delicious batched cocktail recipe, the watermelon spritzer. It’s perfect for spring and summer. Try it this weekend, and let me know what you think. Remember: you can always cut it down for a smaller, more COVID-19 appropriate group. Or just make the entire batch for a weekend of refreshments.

You will need:
– 6 cups watermelon juice
– 1 cups fresh lime juice
– 1 cups mint simple syrup
– 1 bottle white Bordeaux or white burgundy wine

To prepare:
In a pitcher combine all the ingredients and ice and stir. To serve add fresh mint and slice of lime as garnish to each glass.

Juice January is BACK and better than ever

2015-12-01_14-57-40

If you’ve been around here for a while, you are familiar with my annual Juice January regime. However, if you’re new, allow me to explain:

Every year, beginning on January 1, we get back on track with a month of healthy foods and healthy habits, and we are in it together! The idea is to eat cleanly in order to rid ourselves of the previous month of indulgence while setting ourselves up for a successful new year.

Over the years, I’ve gone from a strict juice diet to one that incorporates other healthy foods too, and let me tell you, it’s fun and delicious. Who wants to join?! I’ll post easy go-to recipes here all month long. There will be a lot of salad and soup because it’s seasonal and healthy, but there will also be a lot of juice recipes to ensure we get our fruits and veggies. In fact, I’m starting with a juice recipe today:

 

Basic Juice Recipe
Kale Apple Ginger Juice

You will need:
– 1 cup of kale
– 1 apple with the peel
– 1 inch piece of ginger
– 1/4 cup water + 1/4 cup ice

To prepare:
Place all the ingredients into your NutriBullet or juicer. Process for 30 seconds and enjoy!

 

Happy January! xx
