Herbal Smoothies to Beat Inflammation

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.

Who likes getting their buttons pushed? No? Neither do I. I hate it. But... it’s inevitable. Unless we take a vow of silence and go live in a cave in the wilds of Tibet, we’re going to run into sticky situations with the people in our lives. I would personally rather deal with conflict like an adult than fly off the handle every time someone moves my cheese.

Tea Secrets: The Magic Of Mint Tea

I often get asked what my all time favorite herb tea is. If I had to pick just one (which is totally not fair, but hypothetically speaking…) it would be peppermint. I developed my love for peppermint tea in 1993 when I was pregnant with my daughter Anna. I craved hot peppermint tea and drank it nearly every day. When I went to herb school a few years later, I learned that peppermint has remarkable benefits that most people don’t even know about...
