Pitaya (Dragon Fruit) Bowl. Liver-Supportive Beet + Cherry Smoothie. We love a recipe that packs both a nutritional punch and lots of good flavor.

Liver-Supportive Beet + Cherry Smoothie

This smoothie has beets to help support your liver along with anti-inflammatory ginger, cherries, and cacao. This dark purple, cacao-laced smoothie has a pleasing combination of earthy, rich, and zesty ingredients. It is filled with inflammation-fighting ginger and beet to give your body the vitamins and minerals it needs to reboot and refuel.

I also can’t tell you how many times I have made this smoothie while dancing around to the piña colada song. Too many times. That song is now burned into my brain. Consider this the after-work or weekend drink for those that don’t drink cocktails. This smoothie is like a healthy piña colada without the heavy coconut cream or pinapple.

The beach was so, so beautiful and the weather was perfect. And the fruit! The mangoes, papayas, etc. were really delicious. Chocolate Frosty Smoothie. One of my favorite treats growing up was a chocolate Wendy’s frosty.

Coffee Smoothie. This delicious and nutritious smoothie recipe was concocted for all the coffee and smoothie lovers out there.

Coffee Smoothie

Health experts can’t seem to agree on whether coffee is healthy or not. I believe in bio-individuality, meaning for some people coffee is great, while for others it’s not so good. There’s a reason many indigenous cultures across the globe have sought out caffeine bearing plants. Caffeine, like alcohol, has been shown to extend lifespan, but only when consumed in moderation. Here are a few of the health benefits coffee has to offer. Green Breakfast Bowl. I had planned to start the year with a post about cleansing.

Green Breakfast Bowl

But since I just shoved down two of David’s Almond Butter Cookies, that somehow wouldn’t feel completely honest. Although if you don’t count those cookies, I have actually started the new year pretty clean and healthy. Obviously I’m not on a juice cleanse, but I have tried to minimize my intake of sugar, gluten and dairy products even more. This week we have therefore had some delicious and light dinners.

We will share a few of them with you soon, but today we focus on the first meal of the day. MJF Kitchen: Spring Fever Smoothie. Pumpkin Pie Smoothie. Eating seasonally is not only healthy, but tasty.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

I do confess, though, that the pumpkin for this smoothie came out of a can. Ideally I would prepare and cook some ahead to time to include. If convenience is your thing, at least make sure that pumpkin is the only ingredient listed on the can – no added sugars, preservatives or other items with funny names you can’t pronounce. Persimmon and Tangerine Smoothie with Vanilla, Ginger and Turmeric. Citrus fruits always remind of edible sunshine, and Satsuma mandarins are among my favorites.

Persimmon and Tangerine Smoothie with Vanilla, Ginger and Turmeric

They're easy to peel, and their flavor straddles the line between sweet and tart. I think it awfully nice of them to come into season during the darkest days of the year. Their season coincides with the last of the persimmons. These mild, low-acid fruits pair well with the sharper flavor of citrus, and also with warming spices. I like to bake them into spicy tea cakes, galettes flavored with citrus zest, and crisps laced with tart cranberries and candied ginger.

I am really excited to share another blendsational recipe from this incredble new book, which I can only describe as a triumph. You can read my full rave about Julie and the book here, but the lowdown is that this is the best whole foods smoothie book I have ever read. Smoothies are such pleasurable fun foods, and Julie manages to make them delicious and feel like a treat, but also load them up with a ton of nutritional density, making these recipes an invaluable addition to any diet. Back On Track Green Monster (Banana-Free) Aside from my current career in the food business, many of you may not know that I also moonlight as a Barber.

The job is not to be taken lightly as it requires a fine attention to detail and precision, something I have no place in assuming much skill. However, I’ve had some practice in this area with recipe development and I figure it’s always wise to develop a new skill set for the resume. Every month, Eric calls me into the bathroom where I find him stripped down to his boxers with his Deluxe hair trimming set splayed about, clutching the large electric trimmer in one hand. This is when I transform into Barber Extraordinaire cutting his hair while catching up on the day’s gossip just like any good stylist would. The most difficult aspect of this task is by far the point at which I have to trim the base of his hairline and make a very, very, very straight line. "Looks good to me", I say with a nod then disappear from the room. The Green Smoothie That Made the News. The Democratic National Convention is over and my mind is really spinning.

The amount of information I’ve learned and discovered about our leaders in Washington and what they think regarding our food policy here in America is mind blowing. Until I get all my thoughts, notes, etc. organized, I want to share the special shake recipe I made for WCNC – NBC News Channel 6 last week when they came to my home for breakfast to interview me about being an elected North Carolina delegate to the DNC. It’s a new version of the infamous Hari Shake (Hari, my last name, means green in Hindi) and it’s by far my favorite these days. This recipe tastes like a sweet tart (you know, the candy from Willy Wonka) that I haven’t had in years.

To my surprise both the camera man and reporter Ann Sheridan drank their entire shake. Come inside my kitchen, watch the video and read the whole story here: WCNC NBC News Channel 6: Food Blogger and DNC Delegate Hopes to Get Obama’s Attention (August 29, 2012) Food Babe.

Cashew Lime Green Smoothie. Simple smoothie recipes: 7 seasonal blends for the holiday. Iron Woman Gingerbread Smoothie. Before I became a vegan, I never really put much thought into getting the proper amount of vitamins and minerals. When I was struggling with an eating disorder, I would restrict my calories to an unhealthy level, exercise intensely 7 days a week, and eat mostly processed ‘fat-free’ foods.

When my body couldn’t take the starvation any longer, I binged on sugary processed junk food, often consuming 2,000-2,500 calories in a single sitting. Round and round the emotional rollercoaster went for years. Not surprisingly, aside from being miserable, I also suffered from vitamin deficiencies, including low iron levels. High waisted hangover smoothie. My friend Jess is a rockstar. Like, for real. I met her about 6 years ago when we were both living in Washington, D.C. At the time, she was with her band Lightfoot and we became friends over the bunch of times I got to photographer her playing.

For as long as I’ve known my mom, she has been into health. Some of my earliest memories are of sitting on a mat at the back of her Jane-Fonda-style aerobics classes in Winnipeg. We never had sugary pop, candy, junk cereals or that kind of stuff around the house as kids and I have never, in my whole life, seen my mom sit down in front of the TV with anything other than a sliced apple, a cup of tea or perhaps the rare biscotti.
