Look who’s at it again! Meghan Telpner*, nutritionista extraordinaire, has written a follow up to her popular UnDiet handbook. Now we have a full on UnDiet cookbook to enjoy!
The images** in this cookbook are like none I’ve ever seen before. And the recipes are outstanding, good luck trying to choose the first one to make. For me it was a no brainer, a smoothie! I can tell you that her recipes and guidance are providing more than just ideas for her followers, they are providing people with a way to change their minds and bodies for good. My favorite statement from her is this “No amount of green juice can fix the negative thoughts we let spin in our minds.” If you’re eating a healthy diet but miserable about your diet or anything else in your life you’re doing yourself a disservice. Turn that frown upside down and get going!!
My two young boys actually love avocado in their smoothie so the recipe below was a no brainer to serve to them. I, on the other hand, have a severe allergic reaction to avocado and therefore couldn’t partake. My whole family gave it rave reviews, maybe you’ll step out of the box and give it a try, too?
