Roasted Beets and Arugula
Roasted Beets and Arugula
Happy Thanksgiving from our families to yours! This is a wonderful time of year filled with gatherings of loved ones around the dinner table. Why not pick the healthiest options for your holiday spread? We wanted to take this opportunity to share some of our family favorite recipes that we love to make for Thanksgiving. These dishes are healthy, delicious, and are sure to delight the whole family. Jules, as a vegetarian, finds holiday meals frustrating since they are so frequently centered around a meat dish. So she’s come up with a hearty salad featuring roasted beets. It works well as both a main dish or side dish, perfect for the veggie lovers in your life! Looking for more healthy and delicious Thanksgiving options? Check out our Conscious Thanksgiving spread.

Thai Stir Fry with Three Herb Sauce
Thai Stir Fry with Three Herb Sauce
This warm and comforting stir fry recipe tastes delicious any time of the year, and reminds me of balmy summer nights in Bali. It’s worth the extra effort to find fresh lemongrass, which can usually be found at your local Asian market (I once drove an hour to find it). The three-herb sauce is bursting with nutrients and flavor and after the prep is done, this dish can be thrown together rather quickly which makes it perfect for dinner parties. If you don’t have a wok, you can still make this recipe in a regular frying pan with a little extra oil :) Enjoy!

Easy Weeknight Salad Recipe
Easy Weeknight Salad Recipe
Hey there, Jo here! As a working mom and with the beginning of the school year already upon us, I’m always looking for ways to streamline weeknight dinner prep. That’s why I’ve developed an easy basic salad recipe that is a great go-to for those nights you have less than 30 minutes to put dinner on the table. These are the veggies I usually make sure I always have in my house, but you can adapt it to use whatever you have in your fridge. You can use it as a side or add some grilled chicken, roasted chickpeas, quinoa, or any other protein to make it your meal. This recipe can really be an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink kind of salad!

Peppy Peach Smoothie
Peppy Peach Smoothie
I tend to be a creature of habit– and that goes for both the good ones and the bad. So I’ve tried to make one of my habits the evaluation of my habits. As I’ve found out the hard way, there really can be “too much of a good thing.” Think of that catchy pop song: can’t get enough of it for a couple weeks. After that, you’d rather do anything than hear that chorus one more time. Here’s the lesson: catchy pop songs, good (some might argue). Same song over and over endlessly? Not so much. Green smoothies are the catchy pop songs of my diet. I’m a total geek for them. When I get a taste of a new one, I get giddy. And invariably, I’m prone to overdoing it. What develops, as it turns out, can be more than just a taste aversion. You may feel like you’ll go crazy if you hear Justin Bieber croon the word “baby” one more time, but your daily regimen of almond milk, almond butter and raw almonds, for example, can actually cause a physical intolerance to your favorite food, even if that food is packed with essential nutrients.

Chipotle Lime Salmon with Massaged Kale

Summer is in full swing for those of us in the northern hemisphere! Between trips, hikes, and pool days, you probably don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen. We know cooking in the summer can be tough, so we’re super excited to share today’s recipe with you (which is also delicious any time of year). Not only does it take just 30 minutes to make, you can whip it up on the grill and avoid heating up your house. It’s also cleanse-approved, so those of you who are cleansing with us this summer can enjoy it, too! Fresh, wild-caught salmon is full of vitamins and minerals, most notably vitamins D and B-12, and is one of the highest foods in omega-3 fatty acids, a natural anti-inflammatory. And this recipe turns up the flavor with lime and chipotle pepper. YUM! Now you can have a delicious, healthy meal on the table in less than an hour. Who’s ready to fire up the grill?

Ginger Spice Cookies
Ginger Spice Cookies
Last week at our Zeal dinner we were talking to several cleansers about cleansing with a family or significant others. Inevitability the topic of “vices” came up and we encouraged these cleansers to slowly start to uplevel some of their family member’s favorite foods. Learning to prepare and bake healthy sweet treats has definitely been one of the keys to our own 80:20 success. Our 80:20 Plan is centered around the idea that you can live the Conscious Cleanse as a lifestyle – and that includes indulging in pie, cookies, ice cream, and candy from time to time. Today we have a new, delicious 80:20 cookie recipe that you must try! These Ginger Spice Cookies are chewy and super simple to whip together.
