The first thing I think about in the morning is the Hu Kitchen mashbar (think vegan parfait bar with chia, taro, cashew puddings + more) mixed with some steel cut oatmeal – yum! However, I’ve been conscious to consume foods that heal-cleanse-detox lately. The holiday season and my love for the carb|cheese combination resulted in my body, energy and stomach feeling wonky.
Although all the components of the mashbar and oatmeal are healthy, sugar and grains only aggravate the body when inflamed. Instead an Avocado Smoothie it was: Avocado, Homemade Coconut Milk, Coconut Water, Fresh Lime Juice. It tasted like a summer and felt very cooling to the body (on this cold day)!
If you’re not familiar with Hu, I’d encourage you to go! Taste their foods and at the very least explore their website and read their badass manifestos / food philosophies. They are a fantastic representation of food and ingredient integrity. For example:
We were frustrated with the food options available today. We were even more frustrated with the half-truths that many in the food industry were peddling. It’s one thing to sell adulterated, highly-processed foods; it’s another thing entirely to hijack words like “healthy” and “natural” in order to sell them. These words used to mean something. It’s time to take them back.
