Green Break-Fast

IMG_6570Greens are the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. Increase your intake of leafy greens and you instantly add fiber, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, disease fighting compounds. A green smoothie is one of the simplest ways to incorporate tremendous amounts of greens into your diet and having it for breakfast is even more powerful for your body.

Breakfast comes from the phrase “breaking one’s fast”. When we use the word breakfast we normally think of it as a noun. I want to suggest it can also be used as a verb. “I had a delicious breakfast today” vs. “it’s a great idea to break-fast on a green smoothie.”

We fast everyday. A fast is a period of time where we don’t eat, which is what we do every night while sleeping. The time spent not eating gives the digestive system a much-needed rest, which in turn redirects energy toward detoxification and cellular repair. As a result the digestive system works more efficiently, which for us means absorbing more nutrients, proper elimination of toxins, more energy and stronger immune systems.

This important cleansing process can be extended even maximized if we break-fast with a blended green smoothie. After the digestive system has time to rest during the night, one should ease back into eating and digesting. The blending breaks down most of the cells in the greens and fruits making nutrient absorption effortless. Smoothies contain all the fiber of the fruits and veggies that keep your appetite satisfied. What better way to begin your day? Making healthy choices throughout the rest of day is influenced by the way we start it.

Another relevant point to mention is while breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, it shouldn’t be a heavy meal and it certainly shouldn’t be a sugary meal. But for many people, breakfast has become a giant sugar fix. Think about it – cereal, granola, bread, pancakes, and muffins. These are all just adding sugar to our bodies. That’s not to say we should eliminate all things sweet but getting it from the fruit in a smoothie is much healthier. So the break-fast green smoothie also helps tackle our sugar dependency.

As we begin to enter winter, it’s even more important to have a green smoothie to help keep our immune systems strong throughout cold and flu season. If cold food in the morning doesn’t sound appealing, there are some simple adjustments you can make. Use warm water to create a comforting soup smoothie that still gives the benefits of the raw veggies. Another suggestion is to add a bit of healthy fat to help keep you satisfied like avocado or hemp seeds. My personal favorite is to add warming spices to your ingredients such as ginger, cayenne or turmeric to create deep warmth. All three spices possess anti-inflammatory properties as well as other health benefits. Cayenne helps with pain relief, clears congestion, and its vitamin A content boosts immunity.

One Healthy Breakdown: Break your fast with a green smoothie to boost your energy, your immune system, and your digestive system while kicking the sugar out of your breakfast!

Pomegranates are in Season! Do You Know The Pom Trick?!

picstitch(13) LOVE me some pom! Pomegranates are now in season and these juicy red fruits are just as sweet on nutrition as they are on taste! Pomegranate, which protects against heart disease and cancer, is full of phytochemical compounds. The juice and seeds are the edible parts of the pomegranate fruit, both of which are packed with nutrients. A cup of pomegranate juice actually has more antioxidants than blueberries, cranberries, green tea, and red wine!

The seeds are the best part. So juicy, crunchy, sweet, and refreshing! But, do you know the trick?! It’s virtually impossible to get these little buggers out of the fruit without getting bright red juice pretty much everywhere. But there is a way! Just cut the pomegranate in half and immerse in water. Pull apart the fruit within the water to avoid the mess. The seeds will sink to the bottom while the debris will float, remove as much of the skin and white debris as possible (it’s edible, just bitter!) Strain the seeds and enjoy! Pomegranate seeds are amazingly tasty alone, in a salad, in a parfait, and even as a healthy ice cream topping!

One Healthy Breakdown: these healthy, fruity seeds are worth the work!

Love Grace Juice Cleanse – Sunlight in a Bottle

I recently tried Love Grace Foods‘ three-day juice cleanse. This was my first ever juice cleanse and guess what? I survived! …a little cleaner, greener, and lighter from all of that bottled sunlight! Love Grace shipped me (door to door service from NYC!) five full juices plus a ginger bomb for each day. Allow me to introduce you to the colorful wonders: Super Cider, Purify, Restore, Green Sunshine, and Longevity Tonic. With names like these, you know it’s made with love.

lovegraceAlthough I liked some juices more than others, I loved the variety of organic ingredients. I loved knowing that I was truly eating (well, drinking) a rainbow, with about 20-30 varieties of fresh produce daily, way more than I would ingest normally. Although the cleanse provides a calorie deficit, each and every one has nutritional value and is instantly absorbed due to the nature of Love Grace’s juicing. This isn’t a ‘get skinny fast’ cleanse, it’s SO much more. Love Grace’s ingredients don’t just flush the body out, but also replenish the good stuff we need long-term, like cancer and Alzheimer fighters.

Juicing is detoxifying, cleansing, rejuvenating, and inspiring. This cleanse was just the refreshing kick I needed. Speaking of kick, these cold-pressed, organic, raw, juices pack a powerful punch. Like that blink a few times, woah that’ll wake ya right up! Especially that ‘Ginger Bomb Elixer,’ it’s packed with anti-bacterial and antiviral ingredients to rev the metabolism and up your energy, preventing the body from slowing down due to the lack of calories. The shot is super intense, yet totally refreshing.

photo 1 My favorites included the Purify, (breakfast of super greens sweetened with coconut water) Super Cider (apple, carrot goodness) and, of course, the Chocolate Superfood Smoothie (banana, flax, cacoa, goji berries, dates, and more.) This Chocolate Smoothie literally got me through the cleanse, it made it all worth it – the chocolately light at the end of the tunnel. Luckily, Love Grace allows customers to customize their cleanse and purchase juice a la carte. Good news for me, now that I’ve tried them all out and picked my faves. Hello, chocolate for dinner everyday.

photo 3In all seriousness though, these daily protein smoothies provide the sustenance an active body needs. Made of way more than just produce, they’re thick and satisfying. The superfood smoothies and the ginger bombs are what set Love Grace apart from all of other juice cleanses on the market, and that I like.

The other huge perk of juice cleansing was the convenience factor. With a fridge stocked with juice, I didn’t have to think about grocery shopping, meal planning, or cooking. I happened to be attending an all day Re:TREAT while I was cleansing, which conveniently allowed me to focus 100% of my attention, instead of having to think about prepping and packing meals. I cleansed in every sense of the word; physically and mentally.

So, I bet you’re dying to know: was I hungry? Yes. Not even going to lie, at times I was starving, but not to the point that it effected my body other than a grumbling tummy. I didn’t get headaches or lightheaded, not even from the torture of replacing my normal morning coffee with peppermint tea. I didn’t go to bed starving and I made it through intense workouts just fine.

So, was it worth the hunger pangs, lack of snackin’, and coffee cravings? Yes. It was worth it to wake up feeling lighter, cleaner and leaner throughout the entire day, and it gave me a new appreciation for everything I put in my mouth. Plus, the results didn’t reverse themselves (even after my much-anticipated post-cleanse breakfast of *healthy* pancakes.)

One Healthy Breakdown: Yes, I’d absolutely juice with Love Grace again, but next time around, I’ll probably customize my own cleanse. If you’re looking for an easy, reliable first cleanse or even a long-term healthy upgrade, (made with love) check out Love Grace Foods.

Drink Your Juice Baby!

Juice Truck

Juice Baby is bringing fresh-pressed juice to the Hamptons in a whole new way this summer, on wheels! No need to run from the gym or make a mess in your own kitchen to get a post-workout juice, Juice Baby’s juice truck brings the goods right to you! I got to hang out (and juice!) with Victoria Smith, Juice Baby founder, juicer, entrepreneur, chef, foodie, and Hamptonite, to learn a little more about how her Juice Baby was born.

About a year ago, Victoria decided to leave her corporate advertising job in pursuit of her passion: creating delicious, healthy food, for others. She started the business Stay In Eats, and became a preferred private chef and caterer in both NYC and the Hamptons. This summer called for a little something different, a little something juicier if you will.

Victoria always feels double delicious by drinking a fruit & veggie packed juice after spin class, her workout of choice. “There’s nothing better than the combination of working out and juicing, it feels double good.” She wanted everyone to be able to feel “double good,” hence the juice truck you may have seen around Soul Cycle, Physique 57, and Personal Best in Bridgehampton. “I want to make it a habit.” Ending a workout with a juice is definitely a habit One Healthy Hamptons can support. Even better, Juice Baby juice consists of nothing but local goodness – local fruits and veggies, and the juice is always fresh-pressed within the hour. In addition to the fresh-pressed nutrients, Victoria adds a ton of fun, youth, and Hamptons-love to the biz.

Juice Baby allows customers to pre-order before class so that their order is ready as soon as they’re ready. Pretty brilliant, right? Victoria understands that people want healthy, but they also want convenience and reliability. “Customers know that their green juice will be waiting for them after class and I know that I can expect them too; I know I’ll see Damien everyday for his “Sweet n Dreamy” Smoothie. Mutual dependability.”

We all know that juice is green and trendy, but why is juicing so good for you? Victoria explained that juicing breaks down the fibers and nutrients so that the nutrients can be absorbed by the body instantly. The juice is PACKED with so many powerful greens and other fruits and veggies that you couldn’t consume in it’s natural form (well, you could, but it would take hours of chewing and then the body has to work to break it down.) Juicing not only packs it all in one cup, it also allows the body to absorb the nutrients so much faster, it’s ideal right after a workout or for an afternoon pick-me-up. The health benefits aren’t just internal either, Victoria always sees an improvement in her skin after a few days of juicing in addition to the body.

How did Juice Baby come up with their ‘recipes,’ combinations like “Renagade Lemonade” and “Skinny Green B*tch.” (Yup, you read it right. Who wants to be a skinny b*tch when you could be a skinny green b*tch, anyway?!) Victoria is a foodie, herself, so she uses her knack for taste in her juice concoctions. She doesn’t want super-healthy juice that doesn’t taste good, it has to serve both purposes. Using mostly veggies for the amazing health benefits and adding a bit of fruit for sweetness, her combos have proven successful. “People like the juice, that’s really all that matters.” Juice Baby also offers smoothie options, like the popular “Sweet n’ Dreamy,” which sounds like a dream come true to my taste buds: natural peanut butter, banana, cocoa powder, almond milk, and agave.

So, what’s the Juice Mama’s favorite juice? “That’s like asking a mother which is her favorite child!” Victoria exclaimed. After some serious contemplation, she decided on the “Renegade Lemonade,” which really was what first converted her to become a juice lover.

And, what’s Juice Baby’s favorite thing to do in the Hamptons other than juicing? “Definitely beach bonfires. Late August. Summer sweaters. S’mores. Rose. Chips and guacamole. There’s nothing better.” Sounds about right: work hard, play hard!

Victoria and I then proceeded to whip up Juice Baby’s “Juicy Mama” juice, inspired by Soul Cycle instructor, Daniel. It was so refreshingly delicious. What I love about juicing is that you can smell and taste each individual ingredient, but the combination of them provides a refreshing freshness that no other food or drink has. Victoria let me share the recipe with you in case you’d like your own “Juicy Mama:”

Juice the following: (if you don’t have a juicer, use a blender or vita-mix and Victoria’s tip is to strain the juice with a cheese cloth.)

  • 1 handful of swiss chard
  • 2 handfuls kale
  • 3 handfuls spinach
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 small piece ginger
  • 2 large chunks pineapple

Then what? Drink your juice, BABY!

One Healthy Breakdown: Catch Juice Baby rolling around town this summer and be sure to say hi to the fabulous Juice Mama, Victoria!

Green Smoothie for Milkshake Lovers

Who doesn’t love a good milkshake?!  Unfortunately, milkshakes aren’t exactly the best everyday treat, but a green smoothie that TASTES like a milkshake is a whole different story!

photo(27)The first time I blended up some traditional green juice, I was not overly impressed by the grassy flavor or consistency, but as soon as I added flavored protein powder and a bit of vanilla, I couldn’t get enough. This upgraded shake has been my meal/snack of choice lately and it’s great for any time of day! Smoothies, shakes, and juice are super refreshing and this one’s packed with goodness and taste!

  • 1 large handful spinach or greens of choice
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/3 cup coconut water
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1 shot wheatgrass (I found frozen single servings at Provisions)
  • 1 cored pear or apple
  • 1/4 cup berry of choice
  • 1 tablespoon plain non/low-fat greek yogurt (omit for non-dairy)
  • 1-2 tablespoons vanilla protein powder and/or 1-2 tablespoon chocolate protein powder (depending on your preference, add a little more powder for meal replacement and a little less for a snack)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • a few ice cubes
  • water as needed to blend to your ideal consistency

Blend all ingredients together in blender/food processor, pour into a glass, add a pink straw, and enjoy!  If you’re a real chocoholic, add a teaspoon or two of cacao powder.  The great thing about blending your own green smoothies is the variety – add what you have in the firdge.  As long as you’ve got some greens and a little something sweet, you’re good to go.

One Healthy Breakdown: delicious, nutritious, slurpelicious.
