I’m a bit of a smoothie fanatic, so when it came time to celebrate 50k tumblr followers, my answer was obvious: a free smoothie e-book! I filled this free book with 22 delicious, healthy recipes, each with a picture, allergen info (gluten, nuts, soy, etc), and nutrition info. I also included ways to customize most of the recipes with other ingredients that would taste great!

Get your free copy by going here (my new site!) and e-mail subscribing and I will personally send you the book!

ps- featured here on the cover is my favorite smoothie: macha magic with macha green tea, banana, soymilk & spinach!


Our friends over at The Salt talked to neuroscientist Sandra Aamodt about her new book, Why Diets Make Us Fat, and her advocacy of mindful eating. 

“I define it as eating with attention and joy, without judgment,” Aamodt said in an interview. “That includes attention to hunger and fullness, to the experience of eating and to its effects on our bodies.”

Eating on the Wild Side: The Missing Link to Optimum Health

Eating on the Wild Side is the first book to reveal the nutritional history of our fruits and vegetables. Starting with the wild plants that were central to our original diet, investigative journalist Jo Robinson describes how 400 generations of farmers have unwittingly squandered a host of essential fibre, protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. New research shows that these losses have made us more vulnerable to our most troubling conditions and diseases–obesity, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic inflammation, and dementia. 

In an engaging blend of science and story, Robinson describes how and when we transformed the food in the produce aisles. Wild apples, for example, have from three to 100 times more antioxidants than Galas and Honeycrisps, and are five times more effective in killing cancer cells. Compared with spinach, one of our present-day “superfoods,” wild dandelion leaves have eight times more antioxidant activity, two times more calcium, three more times vitamin A, and five times more vitamins K and E.
