Low Glycemic Green Smoothie (Daily Bites)

Are you up for trying something new? I can’t wait to share this smoothie with you! It’s very different from my usual smoothie recipes in that it’s not sweet. Now before we go on, let me just call out the elephant in the room here. A non-sweet smoothie? What are you thinking, Hallie? Yuck! Well […]

Can't Beet This Juice!

Earlier this week I did a day of juicing (ending with a light meal that night) to just reset my system and give my cells a cleansing boost for the day. It was invigorating and very hydrating! I’m thinking of instituting monthly juice days because I love the way they make me feel. I know […]

Protein Powder Alternatives

A few weeks ago I shared my thoughts on protein powder and why I think it does more harm than good. Last week, I touched on some protein-rich breakfast ideas without protein powder. But this week is where things really get exciting: let’s talk smoothies! In our protein powder-obsessed nation, a smoothie only crosses the […]

Nectarine, Basil & Goat Yogurt Smoothie

  Enlighten me: What do most 22 year olds do on Friday nights? Dinner and a movie with friends? The bar scene? Clubs? Other stuff that take my mind to the gutter so I won’t write them here? I honestly don’t know that many people in their early twenties. Most of my friends are in […]

My Stance on Juicing

Green Flu Figher Juice

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve been asked my thoughts on juicing (or juicing vs. blending), I would be rich! With juice cleanses popping up on every corner of the web and celebrities endorsing this juicery or that one, it’s no wonder that juicing has taken over the health scene by storm. […]

Mexican Chocolate & Banana Smoothie

One of my all time favorite movies is Chocolat. (Can you believe it’s been out for over 10 years? Gosh I feel old!) I watch it about once a year, usually in the early spring. I’d watch it more often, but truth be told I’ve been known to over-do my favorite movies from time to […]

Ginger Tea Lemonade with Sweet Apple

Rebecca Katz has long been one of my favorite cookbook authors. I’ve made dozens of recipes from her first two books, One Bite at a Time and The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen, and now I’m finding inspiration within the pages of her newest tome, The Longevity Kitchen. If Rebecca and I were neighbors, I have a feeling […]

Kiwi Crush Smoothie

I’ve been making smoothies for years with all kinds of fruits: cherries, peaches, bananas, mangoes, oranges, even grapefruit. But it didn’t dawn on me until a few weeks ago to try tossing a kiwi into the mix. A little sweet, a little tart, and the perfect complement to green smoothies, kiwis are wonderful smoothie fruits!
