Delicious Juice Recipe Using Kitchen Scraps!

Delicious Juice Recipe using Kitchen Scraps

Delicious Juice Recipe using Kitchen Scraps

One of my favorite ways to clean out the fridge and use up any extra produce is to juice it! You just need fruit, veg, and lemon/lime to make a delicious combo!

This juice isn’t fancy but it’s delicious, nutritious and loaded with antioxidants! It is super refreshing and will give you a nice little burst of energy after drinking it!

Kitchen Scrap Green Juice

You’ll need:

  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 apples
  • 1 pear
  • kale stems (I save these after making kale salads)
  • 2 broccoli stalks (these are great for juicing, save these too!)
  • celery tops, including the leafy part
  • handful parsley
  • 1 lemon (peeled)
  • 1 lime (peeled)

First wash the skin of your fruits and veggies. I always use this wash.

Then simply run all ingredients through a juicer (I recommend Breville). Makes 32oz.

Feel free to throw in or substitute whatever you have. Grapes, baby carrots, strawberries, even green beans! And, if you have backyard chickens like we do, be sure to give them the leftover pulp. They love it!

Healthy Ice Tea Recipe

HAPPY NATIONAL ICED TEA DAY!! In honor of one of my favorite beverages, I wanted to share this article, originally posted March 2011. This recipe is BURSTING with antioxidants, is sugar-free, and tastes amazing!! Enjoy!!

Nothing says summer in the South like Sweet Tea. The sun is shining, kids are swimming, birds are chirping, and it’s time to play! Here in Austin, the weather is heating up and spring is officially in full force.

With weather in the upper 80’s today, I was in the mood for something clean, cool, & crisp. The answer, Iced Sweet Tea!! But you know me, always health minded, I decided to forgo the heaps of sugar for a healthier, sugar-free version. I got a little creative and gave my tea a twist by using Harney & Sons Chinese Flower (Green Tea with flowers and lemon). Let me tell you, it is AWESOME as an iced tea!!!

I actually don’t care for the taste of the Chinese Flower Blend as a hot tea but it’s a definite keeper as ICED Tea! I love this brand, they have the cutest tea sachets and come in a really lovely tin. An excellent gift idea…hint, hint! 😉

You can find them @ Amazon, Barnes & Noble or on their website.

So what’s so great about green tea anyway? Green tea is bursting with antioxidants. Antioxidants help protect your cells from damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. Free radicals are by-products of our normal body functions. They are constantly formed and then destroyed by antioxidants throughout our lifetime.

The problem is, through exposure to things like cigarette smoke, radiation, pesticides, environmental pollution, food additives and even regular household chemicals (like cleaning products, perfumes, paint, out-gassing from carpets, dry cleaning, etc.) free radicals begin to accumulate excessively in the body. Eventually these free radicals will exceed our body’s ability to fight them off. If we don’t have enough antioxidant supply, the extra free radicals will invade the healthy tissues around them and attack healthy cells. As a result, our health will suffer from cancers, cardiovascular diseases, immune deficiencies and other health problems.

So, be a good girl/boy and load up on antioxidants!! The best way is through the diet. Green Tea is a great source as well as all berries (blueberries, cranberries, strawberries, blackberries, cherries etc.), apples (an apple a day keeps the doctor away!), pecans, artichokes, broccoli, & kale just to name a few. Load up with plenty of fruits and vegetables at each meal and you should be covered 🙂

To make this fabulous, antioxidant rich Sweet Tea, simply add 4-5 Chinese Flower Tea sachets to about 2 quarts of boiling water. Let steep for 3 mins. Serve chilled over ice with a squeeze of liquid stevia and garnish with sliced lemon.

I always order my stevia through iherb.com they have the absolute best prices!! I like NuNaturals brand alcohol free liquid stevia, it’s the best tasting. Be sure to use my discount code WAG472 to get $5 off your first order!

I hope you enjoy this healthy Iced Sweet Tea and some warm weather to go with it!

Raw Vegan Rainbow Roll

Raw Veggie Sushi Recipe via Linda Wagner

RAINBOW ROLL - Raw Veggie Sushi Recipe via Linda Wagner

Here in Austin, the weather is FINALLY starting to feel like spring! It’s been amazing to see the sun again and get to spend some much needed time outside. With warmer weather I always start to get questions on “how to lose weight and get in shape fast” and I always say my secret weapon is simply raw vegetables. Weather you juice them, blend them, or chew them, raw veggies are an essential part of cleansing and tonifying the body. Raw veggies are also loaded with amazing health benefits that will make you feel amazing from the inside out!

These beautiful Rainbow Rolls are one of my favorite healthy snacks and a great way to boost your raw veggie intake! These rolls are absolutely gorgeous and taste amazing! I admit, I used to be very intimidated with the thought of making any kind of sushi roll, but it’s actually super easy. Give yourself a few practice runs and you’ll get the hang of it in no time!

RAINBOW ROLL - Raw Veggie Sushi Recipe via Linda Wagner

This roll alone is bursting with nutrients to support cellular detoxification and cleansing:

  • Cucumber is rich in B vitamins, water, electrolytes, silicon and sulfur to support hydration, liver, kidney, skin, and immune system health.
  • Carrots provide antioxidants and vitamin A which helps the liver to cleanse toxins out of the body. Carrots also support the skin and help to create that beautiful GLOW.
  • Green & Purple Cabbage is low in fat, high in fiber, supports healthy blood pressure, and acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. It is rich in vitamin C, vitamin K, B6, manganese, sulfur, and potassium. Cabbage also has well-known cancer preventative compounds lupeol, sinigrin and sulforaphane. They stimulate enzyme activity and inhibit the growth of cancer tumors. A Study on women showed a reduction in breast cancer when cruciferous vegetables like cabbage were added to their diet. (source)
  • Avocados are rich in vitamin K, folate, vitamin C, potassium, B5, B6, and vitamin E. They also contain high amounts of oleic acid which has been linked to reduced inflammation and been shown to have beneficial effects on genes linked to cancer!
  • Nori (seaweed) is surprisingly rich in protein – 100 grams of nori contain between 30 and 50 grams of protein, making it one of the plant world’s richest sources of protein! Nori is also naturally high in iron, iodine, vitamin A, vitamin C, thiamine, magnesium, riboflavin, niacin, folate, zinc, and potassium. It supports healthy cholesterol, acts as an anti-cancer agent (due to high amounts of vitamin C), supports healthy thyroid function, eyesight, and clear skin.

Who knew you could get that much nutrition out of a modest little veggie roll?!

RAINBOW ROLL - Raw Veggie Sushi Recipe via Linda Wagner

Raw Vegan Rainbow Roll

You’ll need:

This will make about 2 rolls, double, triple, quadruple your ingredients as desired!

Raw Veggie Sushi RollsPlace a sheet of nori shiny side down on a cutting board or sushi mat. Note, a sushi mat is extremely helpful but not 100% necessary.

At the bottom edge of your nori, layer on a small amount of each ingredient. Keep in mind, less is more for this step since most people tend to over-stuff. The more volume you have, the harder it is to roll.

Lift up the edge of the sushi mat closest to you with both thumbs then fold it over your ingredients, squeezing slightly to keep all the ingredients inside. Continue to roll your sushi until you get about an inch from the opposite end. Raw Veggie Rainbow Sushi RollsWet your fingers with some water and then wipe the remaining edge of your nori. Then finish rolling. This step ensures that your roll will stick together.

Use a very sharp knife to cut into 1 inch slices.

If you are like me, it’s much easier to learn when you have a great visual so I’ve included this instructional video by my friend Russel James, The Raw Chef, he’s much better at explaining the process than me!

I know it seems intimidating at first, but I promise the process is actually quite easy and once you make a few rolls, you’ll get the hang of it and want to make it all the time!

I used this dressing to dip and it was DELICIOUS!! You could also use a spicy peanut dip if you like something a little thicker. Both are fabulous!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do! I’ll be posting more raw food recipes through out the coming weeks. In the mean time, you can see all of my raw food recipes here.

Quinoa & Black Bean Detox Soup

Quinoa & Black Bean Detox Soup

Quinoa & Black Bean Detox Soup

Let me start off by saying these photos are very misleading. The soup looks kind of “blah” and uninteresting but I promise it is SOOOO good! Especially with all the cold weather we’ve been having, this is a super healthy soup that’s warming, comforting and good for you!

I also love this soup because it something that you can throw together any night of the week using whatever you already have on hand in your pantry. I know most people usually think of “detoxing” in terms of following some kind complicated meal plan or supplement regimen but I’ve honestly found that eating simply and nutritiously is the BEST way to detox.

Quinoa & Black Bean Detox Soup

Eating an abundance of alkaline rich foods (think vegetables and greens) will detox the body and make you feel and look amazing too!

This soup is loaded with veggies but feel free to modify by using whatever you already have on hand: broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, peas, green beans, spinach, kale, and turnips would also be lovely additions to this soup.

Gluten Free Asian Noodle Salad

Low Cal Asian Noodle Salad via Linda Wagner

Gluten Free Asian Noodle Salad via Linda Wagner

This Gluten-Free Asian Noodle Salad instantly became a favorite of mine! It’s an even lighter take on my traditional Chinese Chicken Salad. I’ve added gluten free “rice stick” noodles which give it really nice texture. I found these rice stick noodles at Porno my local health food store (Central Market if you are in Texas) but you can also find them at Asian groceries or online. Here are the ones I used, also known as vermicelli.

The great thing about these noodles is that they are super clean and made of simply rice and water. That’s it! They are very versatile and can be eaten hot or cold and added to soups, salads, and spring rolls.

Gluten Free Asian Noodle Salad via Linda Wagner

This awesome recipe takes just minutes to throw together and will fit with almost any dietary needs or restrictions. It’s great for weight loss as well as being:

  • gluten free
  • dairy free
  • low sugar
  • low cal
  • low fat
  • vegan

My mom said that she always used these rice noodles as her secret weapon to lose weight when she was young! These noodle salads taste absolutely amazing while still being filling and satisfying.

Gluten Free Asian Noodle Salad via Linda Wagner

Gluten Free Asian Noodle Salad

(printable recipe at the bottom of this post)

For the salad you’ll need:

  • 8 ounces rice stick noodles (also known as vermicelli)
  • 4 cups shredded green and purple cabbage (you can also find pre-shredded slaw mixes in the produce section at your local Whole Foods, Central Market or health food store)
  • 1 zucchini, shredded in the food processor
  • 1 cup shredded carrots (I always just buy a bag of julienne carrots at the grocery store)
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 Tbs black sesame seeds as garnish (optional)
  • 1 hot pepper, sliced as garnish (optional) – I used a Fresno chili for the pretty red color but jalapeno would work as well

For the dressing you’ll need:

  • 1/4 cup Tamari (tamari is a gluten free soy sauce), you could also use regular soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 3 Tbs finely minced ginger (I peeled fresh ginger and used this hand held food processor to mince – You can also do it by hand but I find this process much faster and easier!)
  • 3 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 Tbs Hoisin sauce (I like this brand best, you can usually find it in the Asian section at your grocery store)
  • 1 Tbs Toasted Sesame Oil 
  • 1 tsp Spicy Chili Oil (optional but I had it on hand and knew it would make a great addition!)
  • 1 tsp Sriracha or more if you like it spicy!
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 5 chopped green onions, green and white parts

Finally, in a large mixing bowl add cabbage, shredded carrots, shredded zucchini, cilantro, cooked noodles and enough dressing to coat and mix until well incorporated (kitchen tongs work well for this). Taste and adjust amount of dressing as needed.

Garnish with sesame seeds and hot peppers. You can also top with more cilantro and green onion if you like!

Divide into bowls or onto plates and enjoy!! Serves 4.
