spring

We’ve made it through the darker and colder winter months and it’s finally spring! The longer, warmer days are upon us and even our bodies are excited!

(Sound familiar?) Others cleanse the first week of the new year because it’s a time for looking forward and resolving to take good care of yourself. (Carpe diem!)

Cleanse Happy with Flor-Essence

January 9, 2019
cleanse

A cleanse is a wonderful opportunity to practice supporting yourself. Instead of seeing it simply as maintenance—or worse yet, as a kind of penalty for having enjoyed life—doing a cleanse, especially during winter months, should be a form of self-care. Warming meals and practices In winter, choose pungent herbs and spices (cumin, cayenne, black pepper) to overcome hibernation mode and stoke the metabolic fire. Warming ginger, cinnamon, fennel, and angelica soothe and reduce phlegm. They promote digestion, dilation, and circulation.…

Muhammara Red Pepper Dip with Red Beet Crystals

January 6, 2019
muhammara

Traditionally, smoky roasted red peppers—the version from Aleppo uses the region’s distintive spicy peppers—are made into a spread and their flavor is mellowed using breadcrumbs, walnuts, and pomegrate molasses. Our twist on the classic muhammara omits the bread and substitutes Red Beet Crystals for pomegranate molasses to add a sweet and tangy flavor. Print Muhammara Red Pepper Dip Ingredients 1 cup walnuts 3 red bell peppers ¼ cup olive…
