It’s no secret that I am a big fan of juicing. In fact, I juice fruits and vegetables at least two times a day…every day! I love the flavor of fresh produce and I think it’s fun to create new recipes using different ingredients. However, juicing can be a bit overwhelming, especially if it’s new to you. I’ve found that having a go-to guide full of recipes helps to make juicing experience much easier and a lot more fun. That’s why I recommend Superfood Juices by Julie Morris. This book has 100 recipes that are bursting with nutrients to give your body a natural lift of energy while helping to boost immunity. It also provides you with handy juicing tips, the health benefits of the ingredients used, and ways you can use juice to cleanse your body. How fabulous is that?
Julie’s recipes contain delicious ingredients like fennel, goji berries, watermelon, and of course, kale. She also provides readers with nutrient-dense dessert ideas, perfect for people with a serious sweet-tooth! Some of my favorite recipes include Vanilla Greens (contains pear, apple, and kombucha) and Ginger Greens (loaded with nutrients to help boost circulation in the body). Learn more by visiting Julie’s website and purchase her latest book here. I know that you will enjoy it as much as I do!
My body has always been incredibly sensitive to preservatives and artificial ingredients. Whenever I would accidentally consume them, I would get slammed with a nasty migraine. Conventional condiments like soy sauce, pickle relish, and even ketchup were the worst culprits. I found myself eating meals dry and without any added flavor or sauce. I told myself that it was worth it because the pain of having a migraine was just something that I couldn’t endure. That’s when I discovered how easy it was to make my own condiments, free from artificial ingredients and preservatives. I began using whole food ingredients to make things like ketchup, salad dressings, mustard, and even Thai dipping sauces. They were delicious!
I recently came across the book Homemade Condiments by Jessica Harian and was so happy to find that it was filled with creative condiment recipes that I could use everyday. This book gives you tips on preparing condiments and teaches you how to include them in a variety of dishes. It encourages you to take herbs and fresh foods from your garden and start including them in each recipe. Some of my favorite recipes included the Green Chile Mustard, Corn and Pepper Relish, and Rosemary-Infused Oil. The beginning of the book walks you through the tools needed to keep your kitchen well-equipped to make the recipes and it gives an interesting history on condiments. Love that! I recommend that you purchase this book and start making delicious condiment recipes every day!
