I usually choose a smoothie for my afternoon snack because they are tasty, filling and I can pack them full of nutritious fruits and vegetables to help sneak in more produce to my day. I made a tropical smoothie to counteract the fact that it is very cold outside and actually snowed a little bit during my morning run....I am ready for warmer spring weather! I usually have several different frozen and fresh fruits and vegetables on hand that I can choose from for my smoothies so I can vary my produce during the week. This is a creamy, refreshing, detoxifying (cucumber and pineapple both help support the digestive tract and are natural diuretics) smoothie that you are sure to love!

I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
