My Favorite Green Juice

Juicing is a great way to get in nutrients, especially if it's a challenge to consume enough fruits and veggies. I especially enjoy juicing after a fast to restart my system on a healthy note. My one year old likes it too! This juice has 6 ingredients and should make 16oz of juice. Enjoy! With love, Tasneem .INGREDIENTS: ▫️1-2 green apple (depending on your sweet preference) ▫️1-2 pieces of celery ▫️1 cucumber ▫️2 handfuls of greens (kale, spinach, chard, etc ▫️A handful parsley ▫️1 Lemon

Dirty Dozen Clean Fifteen

Are you familiar with these lists? Each year the Environmental Working Group (EWG) share their findings of fruits and veggies with the most and least amount of pesticide residue. It is important to be familiar with these foods to avoid pesticide toxicity-especially for children-which can effect brain development, hormone balance and potentially cause cancer. When possible try to buy organic, especially the items on the Dirty Dozen list.

Peas + Rice

True or false, you can never go wrong with peas and rice? So TRUE for me! My one year old eats this all up too! Peas and rice is a staple in the Caribbean and in many other countries mainly because it's cheap and filling. This is often served as a side dish, but I like to have this as a small meal with avocado and pepper sauce . NUTRITION HIGHLIGHTS This combo is a good source of protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. Be sure to soak peas/beans and cook thoroughly (or you can purchase canned to make life easier. Improperly cooked peas can contain toxins and impair the absorption of nutrients. . With love, Tasneem
