Autumn calls for a particular kind of food for me… something warm and nourishing, for sure, but also something un-fussy. With two teenaged high schoolers, we often don’t get home from sports and games and other activities until late, and I want to feed my family something nutritious without spending hours slaving over the stove. Thus, the Black Lentil Daal Bowl with Stewed Chickpeas. The fresh ginger in this dish makes it taste like a million bucks, and there is no other chopping involved. Healthy, warm, nutrient & protein rich, quick….voila! The black lentils are really spectacular.
I’m excited to announce that Little Green has launched a new program: a 5-Day Beginner’s Cleanse. Cleanses are Little Green’s hallmark, but we’ve always done 7-10 day programs. This is an opportunity for a number of you wonderful people out there to try this out…
…you want to be guided in a shorter healthy eating program, where there is less choice and someone tells who what to eat, when to prepare everything, etc!
…you want to detox and cut out all processed, inflammatory foods for a period, but a week or longer seems intimidating.
…it’s been a while since you’ve cleansed, and you’d like to jump back in a little more gently.
…you want to try cleansing, but don’t think you can cut your coffee (you can keep it for this cleanse!)
…you need to give yourself a health boost before Thanksgiving and treat yourself to a clean + nutritious five days.
I’d love to have you join us. The first program runs from Nov. 12-16, and I’m offering it again from Dec. 10-14. Registration is live now for the November program, and you can sign up on our shop page. You can find out what the 5-day cleanse entails here. You can also learn more about the great things that cleanses can do for your body here! Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
