Interview about Orthorexia

I had the honor this week to be part of an interview about the dangers of orthorexia, which is an obsession with healthy eating.  Many people don’t realize that trying to eat healthfully can be taken too far, but it definitely can and when it does has severe physical and emotional consequences.

Watch the interview below.

Simple Green Smoothie Recipe

It’s gegreensmoothietting warm out, and that means I’m starting to crave smoothies again!  I’m a fan of green smoothies because they are a simple and delicious way to get in lots of nutrition.

Below is my favorite recipe:

8 oz coconut milk (or other milk if preferred)
1-2 handfuls spinach
1/2 cucumber, cubed and preferably frozen
1 green apple, cubed
1 banana, sliced and frozen
1/4 avocado

Makes about 16 oz of smoothie.
