If there was a pill that helped us feel and look great, curbed our cravings, tidied our digestive tracks all the while nourishing our bodies and upping our health game we'd probably all take it... non? I've been drinking my daily dose of greens for 5 years. By blending your own smoothie regularly you're setting the intention for good health. Consciously purchasing the organic spinach and kale, discovering your favourite apple, squeezing your lemons, washing the produce and blending it. Considering all the goodness you're eating before you drink it. There is power in that. You're seeing it, thinking it, handling it, consuming it. So many touch points for positive intention. Drinking a thoughtfully made green drink seems to feel inherently good, it's hard to ignore. Check out the Goods smoothie archives

Cat & Smoothie Oh shit, I'm obsessed. This is what's in my morning smoothie today. 2 cups filtered water 1 banana 1/2 cup of soaked raw sunflower seeds (soak 'em for 1 hour prior) 1 massive handful of mixed greens 3/4 cup of frozen wild blueberries It's blowing my ever-loving mind right now. Ok, now I'm awake. Right. Let's get to it.  

  Officially losing our minds over these brussels sprout crisps in the kitchen. A friend mentioned she makes them for her kids and they gobble them up, so we had to try. The recipe is rough as it's mostly to taste and patients for quartering brussels sprouts... I suggest making a big batch as they go fast. You can use a dehydrator overnight or pop them in the oven similar to kale chips. Brussels are nutrient and fibre full. They also have vitamin C, almost 50mg in a 1/2 cup. With daily intake varying from 25mg to 120mg depending on your age and gender, this is a delicious way to get some extra vit C into your body. Brussel Crisps  1 lb brussel sprouts 3-4 tbsp organic olive oil himalayan pink salt  black pepper Wash sprouts, chop stumps and compost, quarter length wise, toss well with olive oil and season as needed. Place on dehydrator tray overnight or until crunchy.

  Fat Tuesday was last week and it left me craving pancakes and maple syrup. I just kept thinking there has got to be a better way. Using leftover quinoa I tossed this together and must say it hit the spot. The walnut oil is a great source of Omega3s which are essential for proper brain and metabolic function. And the quinoa of course has protein and fibre which gives you a nice sweep of the digestive track. Pancake Cheater  3/4 cup cooked quinoa  2 tsp walnut oil 1 tbsp maple syrup (to your liking) pinch cinnamon 1/2 pinch mineral salt  1/2 tsp chaga (optional) Topping Options - coconut flakes, blueberries, banana, cranberries, apple Lightly toast cooked quinoa in a pan, add to other ingredients, mix well and enjoy. Mum - yes I posted for you and thanks for the Omega3 reminder xo
