Winter is blowing pretty hard where I live; which usually calls for hot, comforting, stick-to-your-ribs sort of meals. I’m all for brothy soups, thick stews and voluminous breads. In abundance in fact. Yet during these sun deprived months, I also find myself craving fresh greens, clean eats and foods reminiscent of summer.
Perhaps it’s a bit cathartic for the soul, to eat food that reminds me of long hot days and warm sultry evenings. It’s definitely good for my body, clean eating helps keep me fit and spry, helping me to keep up after my little toddlers and all that running a house-hold entails.
Last week I embarked on a 10 day smoothie cleanse and today marks the end of day 4, so I thought I’d share a few recipes that I can have right now as well as some that I had in preparing for the big liquid fast!
