Everyone knows the old Welsh proverb that goes “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. What many people may not realize is that there is a surprising amount of truth in these wise words. Along with the banana, apples are one of the most commonly eaten fruits in the world. Studies show that they can potentially be amazing for your skin as well as offering anti-viral and anti-cancer properties.
The holidays have officially kicked into full gear… and with them, so has that annually familiar push-and-pull, yin-and-yang conflict we often have with ourselves this time of year.
In short, it’s this: How do you enjoy the festive indulgences of the season (Hello, cornbread stuffing and eggnog martinis!), while still staying healthy and keep from going off the rails?
Honestly, who doesn’t want a bowl of warm, creamy pumpkin soup this time of year? (Especially coming off of Halloween, when there are still so many pumpkins hanging around?) The great news here is that you don’t have to abandon your determination to avoid dairy and eat light in order to enjoy this classic fall treat; in this vegan recipe, unsweetened coconut milk keeps things both flavorful and light.
So you just got through Halloween, and chances are good that your sugar consumption is at an all-time high. Thankfully, we’re here to help you get back on track.
As we head into the holiday season, don’t wait until January 1st to commit to making good choices. Make this holiday season a juicy one! Drinking green juice resets your body, helping you release old habits and make new ones.
We’re kicking off our Grand Opening at Healthworks in Back Bay with brand new cleanses to encourage a brand new path of your healthiest fall living!
Even better, order any Nourish Your Soul cleanse by October 15th online, and use code CLEANSE10 and you’ll save 10%. Choose a 1- to 5-day cleanse at three different levels. Cleanses can be picked up at any of our three locations or delivered straight to your door.
Our fantastic two new cleanses include…
As the chillier weather sets in, we naturally start craving warm, comforting foods …some of which aren’t as healthy for our bodies as they could be. Well, here’s one that is. Not only is it enormously satisfying, it uses unsweetened coconut milk instead of the unusual milk or cream, which keeps things light. The whole thing takes less than 30 minutes to make, and can be done days ahead of time so when you need a simple meal, just open the fridge and reheat.
It’s also a great meal for transitioning out of a cleanse back to your regular eatings habits.
We consider it a triple threat: easy to make, good for you, and downright delicious. Enjoy!
Our new breakfast items will set the tone for your whole day. Eating a satisfying, delicious, nutrient-packed breakfast is a powerful tool in maintaining a healthy weight, and to remind yourself that you’re a person who values healthy choices. When you make the right choices, you keep your metabolism cranking, your mental clarity and energy levels high, and you set your entire day on the right track.
I also recommend starting with a green juice to kick off your day. So add it to any of our brand new breakfast items offered at our location at Healthworks in Back Bay, including the following two. Both are bolstered in nutritional value since they contain our almond milk which is loaded with protein, antioxidants, plus vitamins such as E and B complex, and minerals such as manganese, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and fiber.
Fall’s switch in temperatures means we’re finally warming up to the idea of soup—and this one is the ideal for transitioning from any of Labor Day vacations excesses, into a healthier routine. It’s a flavor-rich creation full of great taste and things that are good for you. And if you want to serve it for more than one, simply multiply the measurements per person.
Changing ourselves can be an incredibly hard thing—especially if we’ve faced (or are facing) a big life challenge that has us feeling scared and/or stuck.
To me, cleansing has come to be synonymous with starting over—nutritionally and physically, sure, but also mentally and philosophically, too.
I know how powerful it can be to start over. Years ago I went through a tragedy myself, and eventually, after a long period of intense sadness and feelings of helplessness, I started changing my habits.
What a mighty ally the cucumber is! They hydrate us, replenish us with vitamins and minerals while helping eliminate toxins. They’re loaded up with anti-oxidants, and have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits. What’s more, they aid in weight loss, digestion, reduce cholesterol, and help control blood pressure. Now that’s a power veggie.
