I’m the weird family member who doesn’t eat meat and watches her sugar. In my presence they all make excuses for their food choices.
I don’t want to be the food police.
In fact, there are times that I wish I was an ordinary eat-like-the-rest-of-the-world-individual. Quiet as it’s kept, I know that Buffalo wings are tasty and that cheesecake could wash away every care (at least for about 15 minutes, lol).
To be honest, on occasion I contemplate throwing this whole clean eating agenda out the window.
That’s until I won the dance contest. Continue reading

Day 11: Kiwi Omega Booster
2 kiwi (peeled, if non-organic)
½ field cucumber
2 cup spinach
¼ cup cilantro
1 tbsp chia or hemp seeds
1 cup water or coconut water
Tips and Tricks: Kiwis are one of our favorite nutritional powerhouse foods. They are rich in an enzyme called actinidain which will aid your body in the digestion of protein molecules. They are also full of potassium, a mineral that will help to balance out blood pressure by moderating the effects of sodium. Kiwis can also help to prevent blood clots when eaten on a regular basis.

We are on Day 2 of the 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge. Here’s the menu for Days 1-5. We would love to hear how you are doing with this. Please post pics and comments below.
Day 1: Green Dream Pineapple Smoothie
- 2 cups fresh or frozen pineapple
- 2 cups green leaf lettuce
- ¼ cup cilantro
- 1 lime, peeled
- 1 cup water or coconut water
Tips and Tricks: Green leaf lettuce is a wonderful green that is often underrated or overlooked. It is easier on the digestive system than some of the other heartier greens like kale which means it is a great green for anyone who has weak digestion or other digestive issues.
It is high in water which means that it will be hydrating for your cells. Green leaf lettuce is also very alkaline-forming for the body, which means it can help reduce acidity that can lead to disease. Continue reading
Hey Guys the word for the day is GREEN. The 30 Day GREEN Smoothie Challenge to be exact!
Dr. Celeste Owens Ministries (DCOM) is so excited about this challenge that we want to extend it past the Surrender Your Diet Mastermind Facebook Group and encourage any and every one of you to jump on board with us and the Young and Raw Community for this easy and extremely beneficial challenge.
I know when some of you think of green smoothies your instant reaction is Yuck! Kale, spinach, collards, celery, cilantro, cucumber…how can that be easy?
I’ll tell you how:
- For this challenge you aren’t replacing a meal you are simply adding a green smoothie to your already existing regimen.
- These green smoothies aren’t vegetable-only drinks but include fruits like bananas, pineapples, mango, strawberries and blueberries which mask the taste of the vegetables thus, giving you a rather enjoyable experience.
- The benefits you’ll reap in the next 30 days will be well worth it! Your body, skin, nails and hair will thank you for it.
Now, let’s review the benefits. Continue reading
