Today I have two delicious drink recipes to share with you to support you in more deeply cleansing your body. Don’t let their simplicity fool you; they are jam-packed with nutrients and healing properties that will immediately go to work cleansing and healing your body. Include these drinks daily or as often as possible for best results. Find out about the ingredients in these drinks and some of their incredible healing properties below.
Chaga Mint Tea
Chaga mushroom is one of the most medicinal tools and overall tonics of the century. The phytochemicals in chaga are wonderful for fighting cancer, regulating blood sugar, boosting the adrenals while regulating the rest of the endocrine system, breaking down and dissolving biofilm, and destroying unproductive fungus in the intestinal tract. It’s also an incredible support for liver, gut, and adrenal health.
Chaga is one of the best sources of betulinic acid which is known to kill cancer cells on contact. Chaga is therefore often listed as one of the top anti-cancer and anti-tumor foods and is highly valued in a variety of natural cancer treatments and preventative protocols. Research has shown Chaga to be particularly beneficial for colon, stomach, endometrial, lung, breast, and prostate cancer.
This incredible wild food is also rich in beta-glucans which can dramatically strengthen and reinforce the immune system making it an ideal choice for those suffering with autoimmune disorders such as chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, irritable bowl syndrome, Chron’s disease, lymphoma, bursitis, shingles, and PCOS. Chaga helps your body battle invaders such as toxins, viruses, and bacteria, as well as fungi such as yeast and mold.

It also aids in the digestion of fats, making it a wonderful natural remedy to drink at the end of a rich meal. Mint tea is also excellent in helping to relieve mental fatigue, mood swings, sinusitis, asthma, head colds, headaches, and congestion. And it is well-known for its healing properties on the respiratory system as well as for cleansing the blood.
Raw honey has more than 200,000 undiscovered phytochemical compounds and agents, including pathogen-killers, phytochemicals that protect you from radiation damage, and anti-cancerous phytochemicals. When drawn into cancerous tumors and cysts, this last class of phytochemicals shut down the cancerous growth process—meaning that raw honey can stop cancer in its tracks. Honey’s highly absorbable sugar and B12 coenzymes make it one of the most powerful brain foods of our time. Plus, raw honey repairs DNA and is extremely high in minerals such as calcium, potassium, zinc, selenium, phosphorus, chromium, molybdenum, and manganese.
Lemon juice has some of the most highly absorbable vitamin C around. The antioxidant flavonoids in lemons are your ally in fighting disease. And when you’re dealing with a cold, flu, bronchitis, or pneumonia, lemon is one of the most effective mucus expellers you can find. Lemons and limes are also amazing cleansers of the liver, kidneys, spleen, thyroid, and gallbladder. They purge the many toxic substances we collect from exposure to plastics, synthetic chemicals, radiation, and poor food choices.

Just like the Chaga Mint Tea, each of the ingredients in this delicious drink have incredible healing properties that deserve your attention.
Barley Grass Juice Extract Powder is one of the most nutrient rich foods in nature and has been used since ancient times for medicinal and healing purposes. This Extract Powder contains phytonutrients that feed the liver while allowing it to detoxify dozens of toxins and poisons, replacing them with critical nutrients. Barley grass juice extract powder contains high-quality protein that the body is able to easily absorb and use as well as 20 amino acids. If you’re working to better support your thyroid, barley grass juice extract powder can offer tremendous assistance. This deeply healing food can help to free the thyroid gland of toxins and heavy metals.
Barley Grass Juice Extract Powder contains the enzymes fatty acid oxidase, cytochrome oxidase, peroxidase, catalase and transhydrogenase which help the decomposition of fats in the body proceed smoothly, helping to balance body weight. It is also especially high in chlorophyll, which helps to inhibit the growth of disease bacteria, along with balancing the PH of the body to promote excellent health and immunity.
Barley Grass Juice Extract Powder has been shown to strengthen the immune system, alkalinize the body, increase energy, aid digestion, relieve constipation, and improve health of skin, hair and nails. It may be surprising to learn that barley grass juice extract powder is gluten-free and as a result can be consumed by anyone with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. The reason for this is that the young grass used to create barley grass juice powder is harvested before the grass yields grain.

Oranges are also abundant in a form of bioactive calcium you can’t get anywhere else. The body instantly absorbs this calcium, which means that these citrus beauties actually help regrow teeth, not destroy them. Their acid content is not destructive; rather, it works for you by dissolving kidney stones and gallstones.
Mango is wonderful for stress assistance and viral protection. They are rich in beta-carotene to strengthen and support the skin; they even help prevent all varieties of skin cancers. Mangoes are a powerful tool to help reverse hypoglycemia, prediabetes, and type 2 diabetes. Their highly bioavailable trace magnesium coupled with phytochemical phenolic acids calms the central nervous system, which aids in staving off strokes, seizures, and heart attacks. The fruit’s pulp soothes the stomach and intestinal lining to alleviate constipation.
Ginger is known to greatly aid in boosting the immune system and aiding digestion and assimilation and is widely regarded to help prevent colds, flu, motion sickness, and vertigo. Ginger can also help to alleviate menstrual cramps, nausea, heart burn, migraines, sore throats, exhaustion, fatigue, and constipation and it is great in providing relief from the stomach flu and food poisoning. Ginger also contains potent anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols and is a powerful painkiller which makes it especially beneficial for those who suffer with joint, muscle, and nerve pain.
Spinach creates an alkaline environment in the body and provides highly absorbable micronutrients to the nervous system. It also binds onto and removes the jelly-like viral waste matter in the liver that can contribute to mystery weight gain and mystery heart flutters. It’s especially good at rejuvenating skin and turning around conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Sunflower greens (also known as sunflower sprouts) are a complete protein and are considered to be the most balanced of all the sources of essential amino acids. This form of protein is ideal for helping to build the skeletal, muscular, and neurological system in the body. They are a great source of chlorophyll which helps to nourish the blood, repair cells and tissues, activate every cell in the immune system, and remove toxins from the body. Sunflower greens contain lecithin which can significantly improve memory and brain function, help to keep the liver and kidneys healthy, aid in vitamin absorption, and can bind fats and cholesterol to water so that they can be removed from the body more easily. Sunflower greens are good for reducing blood pressure, increasing the elasticity of arteries, preventing heart disease, reducing inflammation, and boosting the immune system.

This summer fruit salad with peach poppy seed dressing recipe is light and healthy. The dressing is made with ripe peaches and ready five minutes or less!

To make the Parfaits:
This amazing blueberry crisp recipe is the perfect summertime dessert! It’s easy to make with blueberries, maple syrup, lemon, oats and almonds. It’s gluten free, too! Recipe yields 6 to 8 servings (a lot!).
Lemon blueberry filling
Gluten-free oat and almond topping
Don’t forget vanilla ice cream, for serving!
TO MAKE THIS RECIPE NUT FREE: omit the sliced almonds and use ¾ cup whole wheat flour and ¾ cup oats instead of the almond meal and oats specified above. It will no longer be gluten free. If you want to keep it gluten free, I suspect that you could replace the almond meal with oat flour or more oats (haven’t tried that, please comment if you do!).
TO MAKE THIS RECIPE VEGAN: I believe you could use melted coconut oil in place of the browned butter/yogurt (use 4 tablespoons coconut oil and add up to 3 more, until the topping mixture is moistened throughout) and maple syrup instead of the honey. I haven’t tried it, though.
WAIT, WHAT’S ARROWROOT STARCH? Arrowroot starch is a great thickener to use in place of corn starch, which is often genetically modified. It’s gluten free, too. Look for it in the baking section of well-stocked grocery stores or buy it online.
The best vegetable paella recipe! It’s loaded with vegetables, chickpeas, and savory, smoky rice. This Spanish dish is perfect for serving at dinner parties, since it’s vegetarian, vegan and gluten free. Recipe yields 6 hearty servings.
*RICE OPTIONS: You can choose a different rice, but the baking time for the rice will vary according to the variety. White Valencia or arborio rice will be done baking at 25 to 35 minutes. Long-grain brown rice will be done baking at 55 to 60 minutes.
**WINE SUGGESTIONS: I recommend using a dry, unoaked white wine, such as Sauvignon blanc or Pinot grigio. If you’re avoiding alcohol, just replace it with vegetable broth.
