Immune-Boosting Orange Julius

Immune-Boosting Orange Julius

While I love just eating the fruit, this juice (which really tastes just like an Orange Julius, without all the sugar) is a super delicious and easy way to change things up. Additionally, the turmeric and cinnamon kick up the flavor and the health-boosting properites: turmeric is anti-inflammatory, as well as mood and brain-boosting; cinnamon, in addition to being a warming winter-spice (a good pairing with the warm-weather citrus fruit) and blood-sugar stabilizing, also fights viruses and infections!  Keep it coming. 

Creamy Easy Baba Ganoush (aka Roasted Eggplant Dip)

Creamy Easy Baba Ganoush (aka Roasted Eggplant Dip)

This baba ganoush (aka roasted eggplant dip) is a non-recipe recipe, which is to say it's how I cook most of the time.  It's creamy, delicious, and easy, and it hits that oh-so-important tangy, umami spot that we all jones for sometimes in a healthy way. 

Super Easy Coconut Milk Matcha Latte

Here it is! The perfect afternoon pick-me-up: Creamy, chock full of antioxidants, super easy, with a smooth little dose of caffeine that won't give you a big spike and crash.  (And you can easily dial up or dial back the caffeine by changing the amount of matcha used, without really affecting the taste of the drink).  The beauty is it's also super flexible. Feel like doing this, but not that? No problem. More sweet/less sweet, creamy/not so much, warm/cold, it's all good!  Bonus: unless someone knows just how easy this "recipe" actually is, it will totally impress your co-workers/instagram followers/house-guests. But that's not why you'll make it, again and again. That will happen because it's just that good. And so green!
