If this isn’t the best time-saving idea then I just don’t know what is!!! Smoothie Cubes!!!! How did I NOT think of this years ago!? Anyway – now we have absolutely no excuse for not having a green drink each and every day. No longer do we have to make them fresh – I mean really – who has time for that in the morning??? Not me for one! Well now we can just whip up a nice big batch of my delicious Green Goddess anytime – pour it into these cool square ice cube molds and pop in the freezer – WAA-LAA!! DONE!! Then each morning pop approximately 3 Smoothie Cubes in the blender with some H2O and that’s it. You can also do the same for protein smoothies – just blend all the ingredients except the protein powder and add that just before drinking. How’s that for a stress-free morning 🙂

True “agelessness” is an inside job! This delicious organic elixir is

2 cups raw, organic baby spinach

1/2 cup fresh or frozen organic blueberries
1 tsp flax seeds
Juice of 1/2 lemon or lime
1 cup unsweetened coconut water
1 cup pure filtered water
Either juice or blend all ingredients until they are liquified (a juicer that does
not extract but retains the pulp/fiber is your best method). Add ice if you
prefer it chilled. Enjoy!

This festive little cocktail shows off the deep red hues of the holiday season. But this cocktail doesn’t just look festive, it tastes it too thanks to some champagne and fresh pomegranate juice. The best part? The recipe uses lightened-up ingredients to keep it low-cal and low-sugar.
1/3 cup light pomegranate juice
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 ounce rum
1/4 teaspoon Stevia or sugar
1/2 cup champagne
Directions: In a glass, add pomegranate juice, lime juice, rum, and stevia/sugar. Mix well. Fill the glass with ice cubes and top it off with champagne and pomegranate seeds.
Scoop out the inside of your pumpkin, and separate seeds from pulp. Don’t worry if there’s a little pulp left on the seeds when you roast them—it only adds flavor. Just remove the biggest pieces so that the seeds are easy to toss.
In a bowl, toss the seeds with the melted butter/olive oil, coating thoroughly. Add salt, sweetener and seasonings.
Spread seeds in one even layer across a greased baking sheet (or you can use a cookie sheet covered in aluminum foil). Bake for 30 minutes, or until the seeds are golden brown. Stir the seeds every so often while they’re baking, so that they toast evenly.
