Beet, Carrot, Apple, Ginger Smoothie

I’ve had quite a few friends ask me to start up a smoothie index here so here we are. Since I’m doing a 10 day smoothie cleanse, it would seem the perfect time.

I had a mild cold last week, yet another germy spread from Abby’s daycare no doubt. I thought I was done for, yet two days after making this my morning smoothie, my system seemed to realign itself very quickly.

Maybe it was just a mild cold, maybe this fresh, invigorating and healing combo helped do the trick. I’m going with the latter, given that I do indeed prescribe to the *FACT* that food is medicine.


Detox Water You'll Love

This is no Master Cleanse water. Not that I have anything against that – it’s just not something you’d want to sip on everyday, unless you’re really hardcore and favour the taste of cayenne, maple and lemon in your water. Once a year for a designate period of time, sure.

The ingredients below however, I find to be quite a delicious and refreshing combination anytime!

Since I’m doing a wee little 10 day fast, consuming nothing but smoothies, bone broth, herbal teas, water and this detox water, I thought I’d document a bit about the process and share some of the recipes. This can be enjoyed everyday, any day – whether you are doing a cleanse and/or fast or not.
