Grapefruit – Burdock Root Smoothie

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

I was in the mood for something lighter this morning instead of my thick green raw food smoothie. I could smell the grapefruits on my counter and I remembered that I had some fresh burdock root so I combined the two for an amazingly refreshing smoothie.

3 Grapefruits peeled

4 small sticks of burdock root

Place all in a vitamix and blend well until frothy.

It made 2 large glasses so you can use 2 grapefruit and 2 burdock and you’d probably have enough for a normal glass.

Win an Excalibur Dehydrator! And… This Weeks Super Special!

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

I know many of you have heard me talk about how excited I am to be able to offer you amazing products at huge discounts. Its so easy to receive my inside sales and save tons of money on my favorite products! All you have to do is sign up here. You can also read more about how this works on my specials page.

Here’s more good news though…

To share in my excitement, Im personally giving away a 9 tray Excalibur Dehydrator to one lucky person who signs up to follow me on Opensky. (Don’t worry, if your already signed up, your automatically entered!) This sweepstakes is running now until May 8th. So sign up now! Read more about signing up here.

And if your already signed up to receive my weekly specials, here is today’s  which just started and will end tomorrow the 27th.

The collection of products in this Living Intentions bundle really hit the mark when it comes to taste! No joke, the Hemp & Greens cereal is one of the best things I’ve ever tasted. I ate the entire bag in one sitting! It’s packed with greens so you wouldn’t know it to look at it (I mean, green cereal can look a little weird, I know), but you’ll be shocked at how good it is.

Their two versions of Gone Nuts have SO much flavor. They’re actually a little spicy; I don’t like wicked hot, but these are just right. The sprouted pumpkin seeds have great saltiness to them so I use them as a snack straight out but you can also put them into a salad or mix them with dried fruits like goji berries and cacao nibs for a super-health trail mix.

I know, I’m going on and on, but that’s how good this stuff is! Lastly there’s the Original Salad Booster – this is really cool. When you’re making a salad, even though the raw veggies are nutritious, this is packed with things like spirilina and chlorella that you wouldn’t normally get that are so essential. It’s like a grain with nice salty, briny kick to it that gives a serious boost to your salad. You can also put it into raw soups, on top of sprouted grains…lots of stuff.

Once you get a taste of these, I’m sure you’ll come up with a lot of other ideas for how to use them!
