Cleanse Happy with Flor-Essence

January 9, 2019
cleanse

A cleanse is a wonderful opportunity to practice supporting yourself. Instead of seeing it simply as maintenance—or worse yet, as a kind of penalty for having enjoyed life—doing a cleanse, especially during winter months, should be a form of self-care. Warming meals and practices In winter, choose pungent herbs and spices (cumin, cayenne, black pepper) to overcome hibernation mode and stoke the metabolic fire. Warming ginger, cinnamon, fennel, and angelica soothe and reduce phlegm. They promote digestion, dilation, and circulation….

Onigiri & Pickled Ginger with Elderberry Crystals

January 8, 2019
Onigiri

We are loving this DIY pickled ginger. It’s a no-fuss, no-cook, easy-peasy pickle. Pickled ginger, often called sushi ginger, is a warming and versatile complement to a variety of dishes, brightening up root veggies, buddha bowls, and our favorite, onigiri (rice balls). Unfortunately, it usually has artificial color, sugar, and aspartame. Not this homemade version! It’s a pickle fit for a cleanse! It’s a snap to make with just a handful of ingredients, too; ginger, vinegar, salt, and elderberry crystals….

January 8, 2019
iron

Are you feeling rundown—even after having some downtime over the holidays? Do your legs feel “heavy,” or are you feeling a bit out of breath? If so, you may be dealing with a very common mineral deficiency: iron. In the body, iron has the very important job of making hemoglobin. Without enough hemoglobin in the blood, your tissues don’t receive enough oxygen. And without oxygen, your muscles and tissues don’t work as well… which leads to the tiredness you’re feeling….

Muhammara Red Pepper Dip with Red Beet Crystals

January 6, 2019
muhammara

Mmm is for muhammara! It may even be better than hummus. Traditionally, smoky roasted red peppers—the version from Aleppo uses the region’s distintive spicy peppers—are made into a spread and their flavor is mellowed using breadcrumbs, walnuts, and pomegrate molasses. Our twist on the classic muhammara omits the bread and substitutes Red Beet Crystals for pomegranate molasses to add a sweet and tangy flavor. Muhammara Red Pepper Dip Category: Health, Recipes Ingredients 1 cup walnuts 3 red bell peppers ¼…

Minestrone Rainbow Soup with Flax Bread

January 4, 2019

Like a mix-and-match minestrone, this soup covers the liver’s nutritional needs for cleansing. The ingredients can take a bit of effort to gather, chop and cook, or it can be simple. But, like many things in life, the more you put into the soup, the more you’ll get back. The only limit is the size of your pot. Aim to use at least five different colors of vegetables, to get the widest array of phytonutrients. Options: Using cooked chicken makes…
