After a whirlwind book launch media tour I’m happy to be ‘home sweet home’ with my family and my Vitamix! It was exciting to be on National Television and even interviewed by Sarah Richardson on Global TV in Toronto, love her! Sharing my story with viewers and hearing feed back about the health challenges so many people face has made this journey even more fulfilling, knowing that my book can really help to inspire and make a difference for so many people’s lives. It’s a pretty book but it’s an important book too! I hope my book becomes the most dog eared and tattered book on your shelf! Now if I could be so brazen as to ask any of you whom have had a good read over the book and are enjoying it to add a comment on Amazon I would be ever so grateful! It’s one of the best ways to share and inspire other readers to order a copy and get the Alkaline word out! The Amazon Canada link is here and the Amazon US is here. Thank you!
Now….drum roll……I’m soooo excited to share the winners of the draws for a free copy of my book!

This week I have a recipe that didn’t fit between the 300 pages of my book but is a great recipe for an alkaline start to your morning. By all means add more protein if need be by way of your favourite protein powder or hemp seeds too! Protein requirements vary person to person depending on your activity levels and your other meals throughout the day so be sure to customize your meals accordingly.
Avocado Breakfast Bowl with Zesty Lime, Fresh Mint and Pistachios
I sometimes call it breakfast gazpacho! It’s a yummy nutritious way to start the day while pampering your digestive track and feeding your brain with all the healthy fats.
***purely alkaline- avoid pistachios if you are doing the veggie feast or a cleanse
Yield: One Serving, about 1 cup
4 drops alcohol free stevia
juice of one lime
1/2 cup cucumber, roughly chopped
18-24 fresh mint leaves
1/8 tsp lime zest
teensy pinch of sea salt
2 tbsp melted Extra Virgin coconut oil
chopped pistachios, optional
wee bit more lime zest
Place Avocado, stevia and lime juice in blender, combine til creamy. Next add cucumber, lime zest, sea salt and coconut oil. Blend til smooth & creamy. Finally, add mint leaves and process just til combined and mint is minced but still visible.
Pour into serving bowl and sprinkle with chopped pistachio and a fresh grate of lime zest.
Enjoy with a spoon or a straw perhaps.
As promised here is another digital illustration from my book for this incredibly nutritious and cleansing Blender Greens Master Recipe. This gives you all the recommended options for creating a blended green drink if you don’t have a juicer OR if you just prefer to blend instead of juice your veggies. Be sure to post it to your Pinterest board or your Facebook so you can find it when you are ready for it.
I’m looking forward to the continued blossoming trees of spring in our neighborhood as the days get longer, brighter and warmer.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
A Green Blender Drink Cheer to you!
