For some people, giving up dairy is what’s most challenging about the prospect of doing a cleanse.

Green Dream Smoothie Bowl

Green Dream Smoothie Bowl

by Lily Mazzarella June 27, 2016

I’ve always loved my smoothies on the thicker side, so why not really go for it, and eat it with a spoon? The ground chia and flax form a gel so this recipe has a wonderful pudding-like consistency (experiment to find your preferred consistency). I use collagen powder as it dissolves fully – but of course use your protein powder of choice. For extra flavor and texture, I love adding coconut shreds, Stress-Adapt Herbal Pow[d]er, berries, paleo granola, and hemp seeds.

The Power Bowl “How To”

The Power Bowl “How To”

by Lily Mazzarella June 19, 2016

To bowl or not to bowl…. I admit: my healthy skepticism got a bit of a workout in the beginning phases of the recent “bowl” craze. My Instagram and Facebook accounts were suddenly flooded with photos of bright, wholesome food bowls, accompanied by the usual social media hyperbole: “This tempeh-kimchi-bee pollen bowl is everything!” Bowl restaurants sprang up in cities like dandelions in springtime. After all, I thought, what is so different about eating veggies, rice, and some protein in a bo...

Ocean-friendly Fish Tacos

Ocean-friendly Fish Tacos with Ranch-ish Dressing

by Danielle Bryant June 17, 2016

I love fish and fish tacos in the Summer. Like many Californians it conjures memories of vacations down to Baja, tangled ocean hair and the best tans of my life.While my trips down south have waned over the years, my appetite for these tasty lime-drenched filets persists. But as more information becomes available, we’re learning how populations of fish we enjoy so much are in trouble due to destructive fishing and farming practices. This of course presents a problem for my fish-o-phile ways.

Mineral-rich Pesto

“Superfood”: an admittedly brilliant marketing concept that typically describes a nutrient dense food—one that usually hails from a far-flung corner of the world.Well, locally grown, garden variety herbs like parsley, cilantro and basil are in fact “superfoods,” we just don’t usually eat them in appreciable quantities. Pesto changes all that.

Protein-rich Emerald Soup

Protein-rich Emerald Soup

by Lily Mazzarella June 01, 2016

This savory, silky soup is a great way to drink your vegetables, while keeping your blood sugar balanced and your whole system fueled. Liquid meals remove burden from the digestive tract, freeing up resources for repair & restoration in your body. Unlike green juice, green smoothies & soups maintain fiber content & allow for the addition of a protein source, like grass-fed collagen or pea protein.
