Raw Green Smoothie 

Print¬†Friendly 

Description:
"Nutrient-rich kale is hidden in this delicious banana smoothie. . . perfect for those of us who have a hard time getting our daily dose of veggies!"

Kale is not only one of the more beautiful cruciferous vegetables, but it also one of the most nutritious. Here are nine reasons to eat kale, and eat it often.
One cup of kale has only 36 calories and zero grams of fat, which makes it a great diet aid. Furthermore, one cup contains nearly 20% of the RDA of dietary fiber, which promotes regular digestion, prevents constipation, lowers blood sugar and curbs overeating. Finally, kale contains the glucosinolate isothiocyanate (ITC) that fights the formation of H. pylori (Helicobacter pylori), a bacterial growth in the stomach lining that can lead to gastric cancer.


Ingredients:
- 1 banana
- 1 peeled orange
- 1/2 bunch kale
- 1/2 bunch romaine
- 16 ounces orange juice



Directions:
Place all of the above in a blender, blend and enjoy.

Diabetes
Are you age 45 or over? If so, consider having your fasting blood sugar checked at least once every 3 years. Diabetes affects over 20 million Americans. Many do not know they have this condition. Lifestyle changes can reduce the risk of diabetes. These changes include increasing physical activity and decreasing body weight. Eating a high fiber and low fat diet can also reduce your risk.

Recipe
Coconut Cauliflower Turmeric Rice
Category: Side Dishes
Description: One of the best things about Winter is the food, hands down. After a summer of grillin' and chillin', I am feeling a strong call from my stove - it's lonely, it needs some loving. Cauliflower rice totally rocks as an alternative to grains, but what if we could kick it up a notch, maybe give it a little Indian/Thai flavor so that is pairs perfectly with curried chicken and veggies? The answer lies below (and it's delicious).

In addition to being a super low-carb version of a pantry staple, cauliflower is packed with Fiber, Vitamin C, Magnesium, and Vitamin B-6. Even though coconut milk and coconut oil are high in fat, it's the best kind of fat out there. Also, coconut has a plethora of health and beauty benefits including a slimmer waistline, shinier hair, and clear, luminous skin. As a bonus, the cardamom in this dish has detoxifying and anti-inflammatory properties.
