Recently, to celebrate our 14th anniversary here at Sunlighten, our owner Connie Zack fired up the blender and made a few batches of Kris Carr’s creamy green smoothies to share with the team. Maybe other companies would have popped a little bubbly but we take our healthy living seriously! So, it was green smoothies for Sunlighten!
If you haven’t visited our friend Kris Carr’s website and checked out her philosophy on living a clean, simple, healthy life, you are missing out. Kris, a cancer survivor and longtime supporter of Sunlighten infrared saunas, regularly shares some of the best information out there on detox and clean living. And she shares AMAZING recipes too!
In addition to the creamy green smoothie recipe, you won’t want to miss her other juice and smoothie recipes:
- Kris’ Go-To Green Smoothie
- Lime-Coconut Smoothie
- The Anti-Green Veggie Smoothie
- Orange Cream
- Hail Mary! Veggie Elixir (tastes like a Bloody Mary)
- Apple Pie Smoothie (Holy cow, is this amazing…)
- The Sweety Pie
We are BIG fans of juicing and blending. One of the easiest ways to get a blast of nutrition (much needed vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals) is to add veggie juices and smoothies to your daily routine. Have one for breakfast or a snack a few times a week, and you’ll begin to notice the difference right away.
Your body simply can’t function correctly without the proper nutrition.
Today we are surrounded by overly processed and engineered foods – fake food-like substances created in labs and filled with chemicals. The effects of a diet laden with these types of so-called foods are low energy, excess weight, weakened immune system, mental fog, skin issues and the list goes on.
And the right foods can help your body’s natural detoxification process. Detoxifying your body is so very important – both diet and Sunlighten infrared saunas can be extremely beneficial in this process.
