Another variation of my daily power green juice for the morning. There is not much of a recipe but inclusion of cleansing and reinforcing ingredients. Make sure the ingredients are fresh and organic as it all gets quickly absorbed in your blood stream. I also added an Ayurvedic herb called Ashwagandha for its blood cleaning properties ( optional)
Handful fresh spinach
1 inch Ginger
1 inch turmeric root
1/2 tsp Matcha tea
1/2 green apple
1 baby Cucumber
sprigs of Cilantro and mint
1 1/2 cup Coconut milk
1 tbsp chia seeds
Optional stevia if you need the sweetness
Run everything through a high power blender, add water if needed and enjoy! There will be enough to share.
Looking for healthier versions of tea time snacks and trying to use my bananas and carrots, I found a number of recipes in my google search. I have made almond flour banana bread numerous times but wanted to add some carrot. I adapted some recipes but the closet original of the the paleo recipe can be found at here . I used 3 parts almond flour and 1 part buckwheat flour, still all gluten free. For the sweetness I used coconut nectar instead of dates. Dates would have been great but I was too lazy and short on time to use and wash a food processor 🙂
Raw organic Almond Flour works great to give it the spongy texture, carrots add the vitamin c and walnut the rich nutrients. Add the bananas and eggs and its really a great breakfast food.
I love citrus zest and use it as much as I can. Drying your own organic peels and grinding them is a great way to use zest in food, soaps and cleaners. I had fresh mandarins on hands and the freshness brought a punch to the bread.
For tea time in my house it was served with Matcha tea and a side of crème fresh. I found this simple article on Matcha if you want to learn more about this tea full of antioxidants.
