Three best juices to start drinking today!

If we’re homies on Instagram, you’ve seen how obsessed with juicing I’ve been lately.

These juices are a delicious mixture of fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables, and will boost your weight loss, fat loss and reduce cellulite. 

They will also help clear your mind and improve focus.

  • 1 pink grapefruit, peeled
  • 2 oranges, peeled
  • 1 bunch of mint
  • 1 head romaine lettuce

Research has found that the phytochemicals found in grapefruit support weight loss by reducing insulin levels, allowing your body to use the energy in food rather than store it as fat.

Orange also lowers cholesterol, and aids in preventing cardiovascular ailments.

Mint helps mental processes, and the lettuce provides vitamin K—for blood clotting—vitamin C, and folate.
 

  • ½ lime, peeled
  • 2 whole apples
  • ½ cup pineapple
  • ½ medium cucumber
  • 1 shot of wheatgrass

Pineapple contains compounds like bromelain to help absorption.

Wheatgrass accelerates digestion, improves mental processing, satisfies cravings, and reduces hunger.

It’s a great juice to drink before meals, you will eat less overall, and what you do eat will be processed more quickly.

  • 5 kale leaves
  • ½ cup pineapple
  • 1 orange
  • ½-in piece of ginger

Pineapple is packed with vitamins and minerals, including thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B-6, folate, pantothenic corrosive, magnesium, manganese, and potassium.

The kale in this juice provides a great source of vitamin K, which is crucial for bone and blood health. Kale delivers more iron per calorie than red meat.

The key to a more efficient metabolism is to provide your body with easy to digest foods that will trigger your body’s natural functions.

These juices are a great way to start!

5 Best Smoothies to drink during the winter for Weight Loss

The majority of my clients this time of year are happily treating themselves to sugary treats, holiday drinks and eating more carbs than usual.  Adding one of these smoothies a day will save you time and extra pounds. If you need more 1 on 1, I’m available a few times this and next week. Schedule here. Make your appointment fast due to limited availability.

Smoothies are great for cleansing. When food is blended to a liquid, pre-digested state, your digestive system has a much easier job. All of the nutrients can be easily collected and assimilated.

Marshmallow Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have three holiday parties this weekend and needed a delicious dessert to bake and FAST!  These cookies are gluten, dairy and nut free, super quick to make AND only use 1/2 cup coconut sugar to sweeten ’em up for the entire batch! I haven’t tried using only xylitol to make them completely sugar free, but if you try it, let us know!

These are the yummiest, melt in your mouth cookies I’ve ever made.  They are one of the recipes that is coming out in the dessert recipe guide next week.

Marshmallow Stuffed
Chocolate Chip Cookies

{Makes 16 Cookies}

ONLY 10 INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups oat flour (blend gluten free oats for 30 seconds in a blender)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup xylitol
  • 2/3 cup Lily’s chocolate chips
  • 4 tbsp coconut milk
  • 4 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ Dandies marshmallow per cookie (use kitchen scissors to cut in half)

Preheat oven to 325 F. Combine all ingredients (except marshmallows) in a medium mixing bowl to form a dough. Roll into balls, flatten and smush 1/2 marshmallow into each cookie and re-roll into a ball. Place cookie balls on a greased baking tray and bake 11 minutes on the center rack. They’ll look underdone when you take them out. Cool for 1 hour to harden. They’ll be delicious for 4 or so days.

My bestie came over today and we ate a few to TEST…aka, best excuse ever for eating cookies.

Happy Baking!
