Simplicity <3 Less Is More! Quick, Affordable & Healthy3
May 24, 2013 by Living Girl Living Foods
I’ve been diggin’ trying to use less ingredients and have been enjoying how simply delicious, beautiful, cheaper and faster it is to prepare food this way. I have more juice recipes to share today using just a short list of ingredients. Depending where you live, this juices should cost around $2-$3 to make too! These are great bases for juices, meaning the ingredients you use more and if you want you can add a few more greens, some herbs and so on 🙂
1 cup spinach
1/2 lemon, rind removed
Juice & Enjoy :D!
This is a traditional green juice base with protein, high water content in lemon and cucumbers, alkalizing, flushing, calcium I could keep going hahaha. Above I tried to link each item to a previous post where I discuss the health benefits. I have more information in each post, seeing as this site is my way of sharing information as I learn it 🙂
Hydrating Watermelon Slush
2 cups diced watermelon
1/2 lime, juiced
2 ounces (or more if you’d like!) coconut water, I used my favorite truly raw coconut water by Harmless Harvest ❤
4 ice cubes or more according to your personal preference
Blend & Enjoy!
I’ve noticed some people just can not stand the mouth feel of watermelon and other melons. Usually turning it into a slushy is a great way of pleasing your mind ;-)! In the links I connected these ingredients to I share the health benefits I have written about in the past. The article on coconuts for a while was the most read post here on Living Girl Living Foods!
This is a perfect drink for the long weekend, over the summer, or if you consume alcohol adding your favorite spirit 😉
Carrot Curry Dip
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1-2 teaspoons curry according to your taste buds
An additional idea, add a tablespoon of flax seed oil or your favorite oil
Blend until it is at your preferred texture
This recipe is versatile you do not need a super fancy blender and if you wanted you could use a beet instead of a carrot! You can dip carrots, beets, cabbage, chard, spinach, arugula, mushrooms, celery, pepper, jicama, turnips, parsnips, avocado, pea shoots, cucumber, asparagus, apples, tomatoes whatever you have around the house 🙂 For a dressing just let this go in your blender for a little longer!
I used sprouts, celery, mushrooms and arugula since that is what I had in my fridge. I love having a dip/dressing like this around just in case I am out and about for the day, also if it’s already done it is more likely that one will actually consume it!
I hope sharing my adventures with food has been giving you all some ideas for concoctions and brews of your own ;-)! All of these recipes just took a few minutes to prepare the food. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend with great company, much laughter and of course tasty treats. Thank you for taking the time to stop by my site! Much love ❤ and raw power 😉

I just discovered Harmless Harvest and I am in love.
Made your watermelon juice today and it’s delicious. Used mint in place of lime.
Yummy Tammy, sounds amazing <3!
