Blackout Bandits Rx Smoothie

Today is my hubby’s birthday and though it’s Wednesday we live in a city that should be famed for its craft cocktails and artisan eats, so of course a delicious and indulgent celebration with friends is in the books for tonight. However the downside is work/ life Thursday morning. That’s why today’s foodie post is inspired by post birthday festivities, brunches and evenings out. Blackout Bandits Rx Smoothie is a great; rehydrate, get your life together and eliminate those toxins concoction. So the next time your feeling down and out seize the day with papaya, pineapple, coconut water and spinach, yum.

Papaya: has digestive enzymes to help process and clean all the poison you consumed.
Coconut water: has the hydration and electrolytes you need.
Pineapple: has bromeliad which is know for reducing inflammation and shorten recovery time following plastic surgery, among other things.
Spinach: alkalizes the body.

Kobe Kale Salad

I jokingly dubbed this salad recipe “Kobe Kale Salad” because it requires the chef to massage the dressing into the kale leaves much like the preparation in Kobe beef, however, unlike the Japanese steak , this dressing is not made up of sake [I’m sorry].

This is a great salad to prep at the beginning of the week [or day] and munch on through out since the kale leaves don’t lose their crunch.

Chili & Lime Mango on a Stick

Tropical temperatures of summer call for tropical treats and outdoor festivities. Taking inspiration from the south this easy and fun-to-eat mango treat will please just about any age range, and it’s good for you too! Mangos provide many health benefits including lower cholesterol, eye health and clear skin [see 10 Health Benefits of Mangos] . I recently discovered this mango on a stick snack at a local outdoor market. Adding a little spice to the typical sliced mango routine the receipe calls for chili powder, lime and salt. I used Pink Himalayan salt in instead of table salt because the Pink Himalayan salt doesn’t contain any additives or chemicals and provides the body with many minerals lost though out the day, especial in the summer heat.

Enjoy!
