Through the Garden Smoothie

RECIPE

Through the Garden Smoothie | Nutrition Stripped

I’m writing you all from the airport, heading back home to Nashville from our two week stay in San Francisco shooting my first cookbook…it was such an amazing experience and I can’t tell you all how much all of your kind words, support, and suggestions for what to visit- so appreciative beyond words. It has been a whirlwind of emotions the past couple of weeks to say the least! We’ve worked non-stop for 14 days to the point where sometimes I thought I couldn’t do it anymore yet most of the time feeling really excited, grateful, and happy about the project and how far it’s come…but I’m ready to let my mind and body relax, refuel, and refocus for the next chapter ahead. I know many of you took a holiday this weekend so you might be in the same mode as I am- let’s just say a “bounce back” mode.

Green juices. They’re nutrient dense, they’re refreshing…and to be honest some of them are taste intensely “green”. My mission today is to share a green juice recipe that’s not only delicious, incredibly nutrient dense, while not loaded with sugar as many juices can be. Oh, and not to mention, you can totally make this using a blender! Learn how to make green juice with a little kick, without a juicer.

Tea 101

the basics

TEA 101 | Nutrition Stripped

Tea holds a very special place in my life. I know some of you may be thinking that it’s odd one food or drink can hold so much space in a person’s life, but it’s true. It’s far more than a hot beverage, it’s the ritual, the routine, the present moment-ness and mindfulness cultivated during making tea, and sharing tea with loved ones that makes it so special. When I first met Bennett, he was not a tea drinker…like at all. I used to visit him here in Nashville before I moved here and I’d have to bring my whole tea kit with me to make sure I could indulge in my tea routines while away from home. Nonetheless, he picked up on my habits and started to truly enjoy the whole process of heating the kettle, waiting to hear the whistle, pouring the hot water, and letting it rest before snuggling our hands around the mug and enjoying a cup together. Those moments were so precious to me and still are to this day when we both make tea for each other. It may be that tea is one of my love languages, but I speak through it. When he’s having a rough day or long day from work, I make him a mug of tea; when I have friends over and we’re catching up, I immediately offer tea; when my team comes over to work at my place…you guessed it tea is offered. I’ve also collected so many unique tea mugs over the years, which are very sentimental.

So whether tea already has a special place in your life or you’re just starting to learn more about drinking tea, I hope this post guides you in picking out your favorites. All it takes is your favorite mug, hot water, and the tea. Then, it’s all about enjoying the moment. Cheers!

Cashew Lime Green Smoothie

Cashew Lime Green Smoothie Nutrition Stripped

I have a hunch this Cashew Lime Green Smoothie will be giving the Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie a run for second place after the ultimate queen, Stripped Green Smoothie. It tastes like the tropics even though it’s in the thick of winter here in Nashville, but perfect for all my Australia loves enjoying this on the beach. When I first made this, I literally sat back and said “wow”, it’s incredibly refreshing and light tasting from the lime, yet dense enough to keep you full with the fiber rich spinach, fresh herbs, dates, and mango. The cashews are the star ingredient grounding this smoothie and taking the texture to a whole other level of creaminess- sans any dairy!
