One of the things that makes our “Green Your SPIRIT Cleanse” Green Juice stand apart from most others out there, is that we use TONS of organic Sunflower and Pea sprouts in our juices… just like they do at the world-reknown Hippocrates Health Institute!
Sprouts are a nutritional powerhouse for your body, even more than organic kale, but as you know, I’m a HUGE fan of kale too, which is why this is one of my favorite juice combinations!!
Garden Salad Wraps are a fun way to serve a salad and a creative way to use leftover dips, spreads, pâtés, cooked grains, beans, salads and salad dressings. The wrapper can be a warm sprouted tortilla or leaves of lettuce, cabbage or mustard greens. Once you understand how a salad wrap is made, you can be as creative as you like. Just remember the rule, anything that rolls . . . goes!
I am so inspired by the power of tonic herbs that I want to share this simple recipe for making a basic tonic tea. Tonic herbs are the superior herbs. They have the magic to heal and build. To be categorized as a tonic herb, an herb must be safe to take on a daily basis without any negative accumulative affects. Tonic herbs give a feeling of calm and balance. Please enjoy this Tri-Tonic Tea with its sweet, earthy taste and immune building properties. As you sip this tonic tea, feel the blessing of each herb and the gifts they each bring. They are a gift from nature to your good health.

Tips to the Chef: Orange Cranberry Sauce can be made several days ahead of your dinner and kept in a covered glass container in the refrigerator. If your dates are dry and hard, soak them until they are soft, 3 hours to overnight.
1/3 cup dates, pits removed & soaked if hard
2 strips orange rind
1 orange, peeled and seeded, cut in large chunks
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1 fuji apple, cut in chunks
2 tablespoons chia seeds
In a food processor, with the S-shape blade, put the dates, orange rind and orange. Process until smooth. Stop the food processor, add the cranberries, apple and chia seeds and pulse about 15 times to coarsely chop the ingredients. Do not over process as this relish is best when it is chopped coarsely. Remember, texture is important to consider when preparing food.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
How to Store: Store in a covered glass container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
