Turmeric Tea

Turmeric Tea, Nutrition Stripped

Today I’m bringing you all a variation of my famous Turmeric Milk, which I call famous for good reason. My Turmeric Milk has taken international storm and I LOVE how much you’ve all been enjoying it for a boost in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits all while tasting delicious. Today, using similar concepts behind Turmeric Milk, is a lighter more refreshing version I call Turmeric Tea. It’s a simple herbal tea made with water, aromatic and warming spices, honey, and of course the star ingredient turmeric. The flavor is slightly sweet, earthy, with a hint of spice and even though I enjoy this year round, I find it even more enjoyable in the cooler months of the year.

Carrot Apple Blended Juice

Carrot Apple Blended Juice | Nutrition Stripped, carrots, apple, ginger, kitchen I officially welcome fall when the chill in the air sticks and leaves start to turn bright orange, red and brown and fall in the wind; and when apples become my go-to fruit. Normally my body craves, like most of you, warming food  in the fall and winter that comforts from the inside out, but I also like to stick to my roots and consume a lot of raw veggies as much as possible. Carrot Apple Blended Juice is my cheers to fall- a fresh juice highlighting my favorite fall fruit, apples with carrots…and no, not pumpkin (ha!). Actually, I’m probably doing the opposite of everyone else celebrating fall since it doesn’t involve pumpkin and it’s completely raw. Juices and smoothies embody the concept of simple food, what I’m all about. Take this juice for example, there are less than 3 ingredients, yet it tastes amazing and is simple to make.

Green Tart Smoothie

Green Tart Smoothie | Nutrition Stripped, green smoothie, low sugar green smoothie

First and foremost, Happy Halloween! Today I’m sharing the polar opposite recipe that you may expect from a food blog on Halloween, a Green Tart Smoothie. I’m doing this for a couple reasons, 1) Nutrition Stripped just isn’t a “food” blog it’s all about that whole food lifestyle I’m always talking about!; 2) I think we’ll encounter enough sugar today so need for me to put out a high sugar recipe; and 3) this smoothie is just awesome and my new favorite- ladies this one is especially for you. The Green Tart Smoothie is loaded with mineralizing greens, low sugar fruits, and plant-based proteins coming from spirulina or chlorella, and even amino acid and B vitamin rich bee pollen. I promise, after drinking this smoothie you won’t have a sugar crash like most do when eating handfuls of candies and your skin and digestion will thank you so much for it.

Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl

Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl | Nutrition Stripped, smoothie bowl, green smoothie bowl

You’re all going to think I’ve officially gone mental with this recipe, I can already hear my mom telling me “McKel, no one is going to eat that blue stuff!”- all in good fun. This Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl came to me, well on a beautiful blue summer morning a couple weeks ago, hence the name. It’s been really hot here in Nashville so my smoothie bowls are calling MAH name in the mornings for something simple, delicious, nourishing, and cold. This one hits all of those + it incorporates my beloved protein packed spirulina, omega-3 rich chia seeds, and a fiber rich veggie, which you’ll never guess!

Super Seed Muesli with Hemp Milk

Super Seed Muesli with Hemp Milk

I hope everyone had an awesome holiday weekend, I had an awesome weekend of relaxing and hanging out with friends, but I’m happy to be back! It’s going to be a two recipe in one post kind of day, luck you! Super Seed Muesli with Hemp Milk is a new muesli recipe I came up with to hit my kitchen and it’s taken over my morning porridge by storm. I’ve been LOVING this mineral rich muesli and hemp milk lately, both together as a quick raw porridge with fresh summer berries, but also enjoyed separately. Many mornings I start my day off with some variation of the Stripped Green Smoothie- sometimes it’s for pre-workout or post-workout- followed by another breakfast which is some variation of muesli, porridge, oatmeal, or granola. What can I say, I love breakfast so much I eat it twice.
