While the visible beauty may lie in the white-yellow, breezy flower puff, the benefits lie in the leaves of a dandelion. Packed with prebiotics (no, that’s not a typo- we just only ever hear about probiotics for some reason), these greens aid in digestion, reduce bloating, provide a source of antioxidants and vitamins, and are the newest ingredient in my green detox smoothies. Read on to get the full lowdown on the superfood of the moment, and find out how to incorporate it into your diet, thanks to research published by mindbodygreen and Dr. Lisa Davis of Pressed Juicery’s Medical Board.
I don’t know about you, but I have to mix up my breakfast meals. As much as I wish I could eat a bowl (or two) of Lucky Charms every morning, that’s just not good for the belly, buttocks, or the career. So, I force myself to get creative. I don’t do dairy anymore, which is so sad, and I haven’t found a nondairy yogurt I’m in love with yet, so yeah… a fruit and granola yogurt parfait is out of the question unfortunately. BUT I’ve been on a big avocado kick lately. Of course I started with the avo toast, but I just realistically cannot start every day with a piece of bread. LBH. Hence, I just recently concocted the best homemade smoothie I have ever made- enter my newest obsession, My Go-To Green Smoothie!
If you’re anything like me, you’re probably looking for new, creative ways to rejuvenate and recharge for the new year. Maybe you made healthy, nutritious choices over the holiday, but LBH probably not. This recipe is for those who feel puh-retty icky after eating all the wrong things and drinking too much champagne in the recent weeks- ouch, head hurts from just typing that. I made this slaw for the first time a few days ago, and it instantly made me feel 100% fresher, lighter, and healthier.
