Whether you like adding veggies to your smoothies or prefer keeping them fruit based, there is something for everyone here.
This time of year, my Blender and my Juicer get the most action they see all year.
While I’m of the belief that expensive cleanses are nothing more than a pricy way of taking in a boat load of nutrients, there is unmistakable evidence that the way the body functions is directly related to the food we do and do not put in it.
In this sense, I won’t claim any of the recipes in this roundup will do something your body is already designed to do (detox), make you shoot rainbows from your eyeballs, or press the mute button on your cat when he wakes you up at 5am on a Sunday, but they will bring you a concentration of micronutrients that you may not otherwise be getting in your regular diet.
I know my diet is deficient in certain micros without the supplementation of a multi-vitamin or the occasional juice or smoothie, as I track my micronutrients in addition to my macronutrients in an app. It’s actually very enlightening!
So, these recipes!
I originally posted this roundup back in 2013, so we’re looking at some seriously retro and amazingly EPIC smoothie and juice recipes!
Back then, there was a lot of discussion about the detoxifying power of certain whole foods.
Since then, there have been no good studies concluding that food can help detoxify your system, though there is ample evidence that shows your body’s ability to heal and perform optimally is directly proportional to the amount of inflammation present.
In this sense, putting food in the body that doesn’t add to inflammation or even lowers it enables your organs to do their job more efficiently such that your immune system is functioning at a high level.
What I love most about this roundup is it brings new life to recipes that are just as good today as the day they were posted.
