Plant Protein Power Salad

I have to be honest. I never really got on board with the kale trend a few years ago, other than throwing a bit in my smoothie knowing all that delicious sweet fruit would mask the bitter green taste. I was kind of burnt out with green salads around that time anyway. They just didn’t satisfy anymore. But sometime between now and then I discovered a few things. 1.

Juicing – Day 2 After taking the first chug of my second 16 ounce juice, I was oh so grateful that I opted for 48 ounces rather than 96. This mid-day juice consisted of celery, cucumber, and blue green algae. In my opinion, very unpleasant. However, the other two juices were pretty good and that spicy sea-like juice made me savor and appreciate the avocado and smoothie I had for dinner. With that, I present […]

My greatest intention this Spring is to create a healthier lifestyle in order to rebuild my physical and mental health. Four weeks ago, a began oil pulling which has been proven to reduce infections, promote oral health, whiten teeth, reduce seasonal allergies . . . and who knows what other magic!
