    [post_content] => Healthy Smoothies organic smoothies recipies

Making healthy smoothies are easy! And, the best part is, you already have the ingredients to make one in your kitchen!

Over the years my wife and I have gone through several morning rituals. We went through a toast and jam phase, a coffee phase, we bought an expensive juicer and did the juicing phase, but the one that’s stuck around and stood the test of time has been making healthy smoothies with our blender every morning. It’s the easiest and the healthiest way to start your day off right.

I’ve included a few of my favorite recipes below but feel free to get creative! Anyone can make a healthy smoothie with three simple ingredients. Here is a list to get you started, but again, feel free to experiment with different combinations and add to this list as needed.


Step 1: Add a Liquid

The base of your smoothie is the liquid. Liquids like milk and Coconut milk are great options because thy add an extra boost of protein.  You should avoid juice if possible because of all that added sugar. Milk, Almond Milk, Soy Milk, Rice Milk, Coconut Milk, Coconut Water, Fruit Juice, and Vegetable Juice are great ways to start off a healthy smoothie.

Step 2: Add Produce

This is where the majority of your vitamins and minerals will come from so the more ingredients you can pack in the better. Raw and fresh is the key here but purchasing a bag of frozen berries or kale is a sure way to have smoothie ingredients on hand when you need them.

Kale, Spinach, Blue Berries, Strawberries, Black Berries, Mango, Banana, Orange, Tangerine, Cucumber, Beats, Ginger, Lemon, Lime, Grapefruit, Coconut Pulp, Avocado, Carrots, Fennel, Sea Vegetables, Zucchini, and Tomatoes are loaded with nutrients and break down well in blenders.


Step 3: Add a Protein

Adding protein to your smoothie will help you feel full and keep you from snacking a half hour later. Peanut Butter, Almond Butter, Coconut Milk, Flax Seeds, Seaweed, Oats, Chia Seeds, Milk, Yogurt (unsweetened is best), Pumpkin Seeds, Quinoa, Raw Egg, Soy Milk, Sunflower Seeds, Walnuts, Hemp Seeds, Cacao Nibs, along with a mile long list of available protein powders.

Eco Caters, your Los Angeles wedding catering and event design team, kicked off our first wedding of 2015! Take a looksy!

Cortney and Alec tied the knot in style with a soft pallet of pink and violet colors, finished with elegant details. The bride stunned guests with her backless wedding dress, designed by Katie May, while the groom could have made the cover of a men’s fashion magazine in his dapper suit and unique cufflinks by Steampunk Luxury. The wedding was a relaxing affair with infectious dance music by DJ Haute Mobile Disco and delicious locally sourced food by our Los Angeles wedding caterers.

Fruits-and-veggies

While March brings forth Women's History Month and the Youth Art Month, it also offers our first burst of fresh and in-season fruits and vegetables of the year.

Why the importance on "seasonal" fruits and vegetables?

While one can can always find tomatoes, leafy greens, and essential fruits at the local grocery store, it does not always mean that it's "fresh." That limp head of lettuce may not have been grown nearby.  It may have traveled thousands of miles across the globe and picked over a week before landing in your fridge.  By this time these delicate living organisms have diminished in nutritional value, and flavor.

The main benefit of eating local, in-season produce, is the gift of maximum nutrition. In addition, you are investing in, and supporting, your community by purchasing from local farmers. Lastly, you drastically reduce your carbon footprint by not having your food shipped across the continent.

Lastly, purchasing in season fruits and vegetables just taste better!  They are fresh so they are typically riper and more crisp than products that sat in a crate for days on end.  Some of the best places to pick these in season fruits and vegetables is at your neighborhood farmers market.  It'll give you a chance to compare freshness from different farms, and also give you the chance to talk directly with the growers.

Here are a list of 20 in-season fruits and vegetables you should add to your grocery list for the month of March.

1.  Carrots 

2.  Brussels Sprouts 

3.  Pears

4.  Artichokes

5.  Grapefruit

6.  Oranges

7.  Tangerines

8.  Lemons

9.  Celery

10.  Apples

11.  Cabbage

12.  Strawberries

13.  Asparagus

14.  Broccoli

15.  Spinach

16.  Greens

17.  Potatoes

18.  Beets 

19.  Cauliflower

20. Radishes
