Summer Heat + Strawberry Mint Sorbet

This Summer, I am offering an AMAZING summer cleanse that will change the way you view healthy. Healthy does NOT mean deprivation.  Instead of focusing on what you cannot eat, I am giving you over 70 delicious recipes that will have you thinking, "there is no way this is good for me!"

Strawberry Mint Sorbet

Au contraire.  Each of these recipes was designed by a master chef, including this delicious Strawberry Mint Sorbet, to be healthy and cleanse-friendly.

The food we put into our mouths can have powerful effects on the body.  It can either lead to inflammation or give us endless energy.  What I am offering is not just a cleanse; it is designed to help you identify and eliminate foods that may be wreaking havoc on your system and not allowing you to reach your health goals. 

In fact, we just wrapped up our July Summer Nourishing Cleanse group and here is what folks have to say:

" I feel better than I have in years!  I've added some new foods into my diet that are now going to stay in my diet, and as a bonus, I lost 5 pounds!  Which I could never shake after having a baby at 41.  I'm now sticking with my new regime because I simply feel better.  Thank you for the kick start for focusing on my own health.......you made a difference to me this summer!"
- Heather T., Georgetown, MA

Imagine living a life where you're full of energy.  You wake up in the morning feeling refreshed. You've got a bounce in your step.  You glow.  And everyone around you is asking, "What did you do?"  But you know that all you're doing is eating clean, whole foods.  That's it!  You can hardly believe that it's possible to feel this amazing while eating food that actually tastes good.

Strawberry Sorbet with Mint

This is one of my favorite desserts from our Summer Nourishing Cleanse program.  Cleansing in late summer is perfect for reducing heat that your body accumulates all summer long.  This sorbet, along with all of the other 70+ recipes, is perfect for removing this heat out of your body with nature's naturally cooling foods. Serve it up and enjoy!
Strawberries + Mint = Yum!

- 3 cups frozen organic strawberries (link to why you want to choose organic)
- 1 cup organic apple juice or coconut water (I prefer coconut water for this recipe)
- 4-5 fresh mint leaves

In a high speed blender, add all ingredients.  Blend until well incorporated and smooth.  Serve immediately.

Bon Appetit!

Be well,

Eat Less, Play More!

Remember when you were a child and you got so wrapped up in playing, imagining or creating that you didn’t want to stop when it was time to eat? Do you remember leaving your meal half-finished to run off and continue playing? Children innately understand that food is secondary to what is most nutritious and primary in life: fun and play.

As adults we seem to have lost our instinct to prioritize play. In our busy world, with its emphasis on work and responsibility, to be healthy and balanced we must work on more than just our bodies; we must feed our hearts, minds and spirits.

Beach Fun!

Have you noticed that when your body, mind and spirit are engaged in a creative project or happy relationship, your reliance on food seems to decrease? Likewise, when you are unsatisfied with your relationships, your job or other areas of your life, you may depend on food to cheer, soothe or numb you. When your life is out of balance, no amount of food can feed you where you truly need nourishment. The food that we eat is very important for health and balance, but what really feeds us—a full and fulfilling life—doesn’t come on a plate.

What is fun for you? What makes you light up? What excites you? Make time for it this week. Even if you don’t have much free time for fun, try approaching a “serious” activity with an attitude of play.  
This can greatly reduce stress and anxiety and bring more pleasure to your day. Take your focus off food, try adding more fun into your life and watch the magic unfold.
Be well,
