Herbal Smoothies to Beat Inflammation

 

Inflammation is at the root of so many physical ailments, from joint pain to acne to brain degeneration. Maintaining an anti-inflammatory diet will help you to stay healthy, happy, and ailment-free. Thankfully, it’s really easy to do! These three smoothies are high in anti-inflammatory herbs, seeds (like flaxseeds), nuts (like walnuts), and berries (which fight inflammation through compounds called anthocyanins). Make these smoothies as-is, or experiment with new flavor combinations! Each of these smoothies serves 2-4.

 

Smoothie 1:

2 cups cold-brewed Joyful Garden

1 cup Walnuts, soaked and drained several times over 8+ hours

1 cup Baby Spinach or Kale

2 frozen Bananas

1⁄2 cup Blueberries

2 teaspoons ground Chia Seeds

 

Blend the Joyful Garden tea with the walnuts in a high-speed blender, and strain through a nut-milk bag (you can dehydrate the pulp and turn it into a nut flour for baking, if you like). Rinse out the blender and add back the nut milk you just made with the other ingredients, and blend until smooth.

  

 

Smoothie 2:

2 cups cold-brewed Happy Place

3 frozen Bananas

3 Medjool Dates, pitted  

2 tbsp. Almond Butter

3 tbsp. Flaxseed, ground

1 cup Baby Spinach

 

Blend all ingredients together until smooth.

 

 

Smoothie 3: 

2 cups cold-brewed Strawberry Kiss

1 cup Walnuts, soaked and drained several times over 8+ hours

1 cup ripe Strawberries

2 tbsp. Goji Berries

2 frozen Bananas

2 tbsp. Hemp Seeds

1 tsp. Vanilla Extract

 

Blend the Strawberry Kiss tea with the walnuts in a high-speed blender, and strain through a nut-milk bag (you can dehydrate the pulp and turn it into a nut flour for baking, if you like). Rinse out the blender and add back the nut milk you just made with the other ingredients, and blend until smooth.

Hey Tea Lover: If You're Drinking Tea From A Teabag, You Might Be Consuming Thousands Of Plastic Particles With Every Cup

Did you know... Many tea companies sell their tea in teabags that are made with plastic? I hate to say it, but it's true. A recent study conducted in 2019 showed that many of the teabags made by some of the most popular brands contain plastic. The study showed that one teabag of tea steeped at 95C (203F) released “approximately 11.6 billion microplastics and 3.1 billion nanoplastics into a single cup of the beverage.” This is a much higher level of plastic being ingested than what you are exposed to in other foods.
