Fresh berries are miracle workers. I could write for days, okay, maybe hours, about the many ways berries can prevent a slew of ailments such as dementia, poor vision, skin rashes, and arthritis. This Summer, be extra good to your body by eating a pint or two every week. Try blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, and my new favorite golden berries. And if you have issue with the seeds then you can strain the smoothie but eating seeds is my way of wholeheartedly embracing nature.

You will need:
a blender
1/2 cup water, almond milk, orange juice, or organic soymilk
1 banana
1/2 pint of fresh blueberries and strawberries (or any organic berries)
a hand full of dried goji berries (sold in most health food stores or food coops)
a small hand full of raw cashews (optional)

BLEND it UP!

  • Rinse berries and remove stems before putting in the blender (you know this, right?)
  • Add remaining ingredients to your blender and press “blend” or “liquefy”for 30 seconds or so

DRINK immediately!
Serve with a sprig of fresh mint. Happy Summer and give thanks for fresh fruit!

    I LOVE smoothies. In the winter I get organic frozen berries so I can have smoothies year around!

  • No words. No filter. #zanzibar #sunset #peace #goodnight #wdiet #africa
  • Stone Town, Zanzibar is a beautiful hectic island with loads of character and spice but I'll admit it, the food at the night market gets only one star for hustle and charm. The food is far from fresh. However, the location is GORGEOUS BUT it's basically for tourists. Now I know! Feel free to share your local restaurant recommendations? #stonetown #zanzibar #nightmarket #africa #wdiet #winterindar
  • Some roads are bumpy but hold tight and trust that you will get to your destination in due time. Early morning ride in a bajaj - it's a travel day for us! Happy Back to Work Day to some of you. Stay cool as cucumbers 🥒 on a hot summer day 😎 #Africa #daressalaam #tanzania #transport #hydrate #wdiet
  • First time drinking baobab juice from the Baobab tree. It's a bit grainy with a tinge of tart and sweetness. The mighty Baobab tree can grow up to 90 feet tall for approximately 500 years. The powder from the fruit is rich in vitamin C, high in protein, potassium, calcium and magnesium. The fiber helps maintain healthy bacteria in the gut too and can tackle dysentery. #daressalaam #baobab #healthybody #healthyliving #healthyeating #africa #healingfoods
  • Yesterday after a swim in the Indian Ocean, I fell fast asleep right here. I could feel the earth laying hands on me. I awoke wearing a smile of gratitude not only because I'm surrounded by beauty but because I am healthy and free. #givethanks #daressalaam #winterindar #tanzania #happysunday #wdiet #trees #winterindar
