Kale sweet Kale

I’ve been waiting for the Kale season to kick in for a long time now.
In Sweden Kale is popular during the Holidays, that means that EVERY grocery store carries Kale this time of year, and they usually have organic kale too. So It’s an understatement to say that I’m overdosing on Kale these days. I’m basically starting my day with a Kales smoothie and ending it with Kale chips from the dehydrator.

Live Longer Smoothie

Many try to fight off wrinkles and and other signs of aging with different potions and lotions, it rarely if ever works. The truth is, you will look and feel depending on how you eat. I don’t believe in resisting aging, why should change be bad? I don’t want to look exactly the same when I’m 35 or 45! I want to change, but in a good and healthy way. I believe that we can look better and healthier in 10 years than we do now. How, you ask? Well, the answer is simple by giving our bodies and our mind the proper nourishment.  Are you ready to try it? Start by giving your beautiful temple a healthy nutritious smoothie. I call this one the “Live Longer Smoothie”, it contains blueberries that are full of antioxidants, by many considered a longevity serum.  Blueberries are a true superfood, they contain lots of vitamins and fiber. Here is a list of some of the daily values that 1 cup of these babies contains.

Rejuvenation Smoothie

This is what I drank after my water fast. The cucumber is one of my favorite veggies. It’s delicious, nutritious and good for my belly. Did you know that cucumber contains lariciresinol, pinoresinol, and secoisolariciresinol, three lignans that reduce risk of cardiovascular disease as well as several cancer types, including breast, uterine, ovarian, and prostate cancers. Cucumber also has anti-inflammatory properties, it’s freaking amazing right? I also added grapes to this smoothie. Grapes are full of nutrients and taste divine. Try this smoothie if your easing out or in to a fast, or if you just want something delicious and refreshing. (see recipe below)
