Blend This Vegan Banana Mango Smoothie

Make this banana mango smoothie when you need a pick-me-up after a tough workout. Make sure that you use really juicy and ripe mangos for this recipe. If they are too hard or if they're not ripe enough, they won't taste as good. We prefer to use Thai mangos above all others - they're completely yellow, if you can find them in your local grocery store.

Broccoli and Kale Garlic Noodles

Broccoli and Kale Garlic Noodles

if you’re a busy mom/person, or you have a child/adult-child who still refuses to eat their greens, I definitely suggest giving these garlic noodles a try! You can always tell them that it's a new type of green pesto. With all the garlic and parmesan in it, you could barely tell the difference! Just a friendly FYI… be aware that this isn’t an appropriate lunch when you have to give a really important meeting, or if you’re going on a date. Unless your date eats these garlic noodles, too. Garlic breath is a silent but smelly killer.

Of course, I changed some ingredients to make the dishes healthier because I wasn't exactly the healthiest person on earth when I was in Mexico.   Eating well is all about balance.

Overcome Food Guilt With These 5 Tips

Overcome Food Guilt With These 5 Tips

It's hard to overcome cravings for food that is too sweet, salty, or fatty. Rather than giving up chocolate, fries, and (god forbid) pizza altogether, stop dealing with food guilt by having 'cheat meals' (or even 'cheat days'). Your cravings will be satisfied and you'll have more control over your appetite when you do eat more indulgent meals.

Often, when we begin to eat healthier, we develop a love-hate relationship with 'junk' food. Sometimes we binge on it and then, we feel guilty afterwards. It isn't worth living a life filled with food guilt.

Here's how to form a healthy relationship with food so that you can stop bingeing and start eating intuitively.
