Kale, dear friend

Kale is both helpful for detoxifying the body and keeping the liver healthy. … Detoxes with kale are specifically designed to make sure the liver is kept clean of impurities, says MindBodyGreen, and to supply it with healthy nutrients that it needs to function properly”.

“Kale has one of the highest levels of antioxidants of any plant you can eat and can help reduce inflammation, lower cholesterol and detox the liver. Adding kale into your cleansing regimen can be effective, when it’s eaten in moderation”.

A tasty and natural detox/cleanse.

  • I used Cashew Milk …will try my Flax milk tomorrow.
  • I added a 1/2 t of Tumeric, 1/4 t Cinnamon & 1/4 t of Ginger powder.
  • Be sure to use a really good blender…I had to pulse for sometime to break down the Kale. I prefer without a  sweetner but I could see how some might want to add Stevia/honey to sweeten it up.

Tumeric…

I’ve stocked up on my spices for the Winter. Purchased them on Amazon but it can easily be found in your local supermarket shelves. I prefer Organic/good quality spice.

Tumeric is great for combating inflammation in the body too. I add 1t of Tumeric and add a few dashes of Black Pepper (it helps to boost the absorption of curcumin), Cinnamon & Ginger and steep it all for 7 minutes with my tea bag.

There are a number of ways to sneak Tumeric into homecooked meals like. I cook Latin foods which already use a lot of spice so adding Tumeric to: brown rice dishes, beans, stews, roasted chicken, meatloaf/balls, soups, eggs, potatoes, tomato sauce… – just about everything is easy.
