Green Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream


Green Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream | Nutrition Stripped

Ice cream! I get really excited about ice cream recipes and this is probably going down as the best I’ve ever made…thus far. It’s that good. It’s not only a beautiful sage green color, but it has several things that I adore: coconut milk, rich in medium chain triglycerides (i.e. healthy saturated fats), fresh mint that soothes digestion, dark chocolate which is high in antioxidants, and greens from matcha and ALOHA Daily Greens. It’s the epitome of ice cream, thick, creamy, cold, and smooth; perfect for warmer days.

What is Foam Rolling?


What is Foam Rolling, Foam Rolling 101 | Nutrition Stripped

You’ve seen me post about it before, but I adore foam rolling, and many of you have asked…what is foam rolling? A legit question since it sounds like the weirdest thing, but I promise if you’re as active as me, or sit for long periods of time working, or simply have tense muscles you’ll LOVE this technique.

Lemony Sunchoke Soup


Lemony Sunchoke Soup | Nutrition Stripped

With the sun waking up and shaking off winter, spring and summer bring about times where soup is often left behind unless we’re talking about gazpacho. To soups credit, it’s a dish that should still be incorporated into our spring and summer menus since it’s easy to make, stores well as a leftover, and most importantly the fiber can help us improve our digestion (but take it easy and read my notes on these sunchokes), making us feel great from the inside out when we might be showing a little more midriff and skin, right? The combination of zesty fresh lemon made in a delicate broth surrounding chunks of fiber rich sunchokes, make it the perfect spring soup to welcome into your repertoire!
