1 1/2 cups of unfiltered apple juice

1 medium raw beet,chopped,steamed or baked (if using a conventiocal blender)

1 medium carrot,chopped,steamed or grated (if using a conventional blender)

2 medium lemons,peeled and seeded

1 cup loosely packed chard leaves

1 teaspoon minced ginger

1 cup of frozen mango

Throw all of the ingredients(except the frozen mango) into your blender and blast on high for about 1 minute,until well combined. Add the frozen mango and balst ffor 10 to 20 seconds more,until smooth and creamy.

 

This vegetable-packed blend is surprisingly delicious according to Tess the author.She recommends you definitely add the mint.The betatine in beets flushes the liver,purifies the blood, and enhances circulation;carrots boost the liver’s anti-oxidant capacity and the lemons improve liver function. Chard provides syringic acid,a flavonoid that prevenst liver degeneration,and mango and ginger have liver-protecting properties,too.

 

I read if we partake of libations it is tough on the liver…so since I enjoy a glass of wine with my dinner meal…I tought this recipe for me is ideal. I have played with this recipe and added other ingredients. BUT I prefer HER recipe the best!

Nothing like a BOOK!

There is nothing like reading a book…especially when it is a YUMMY one.

I came across this new cookbook and simply had to share it with you! I love to cook but don’t always have the time as travel does not allow it. Hotel or on the road food are my only choices. However, I do like to cook and love the art of the process an the fun of the presentation.

Celebrity  award winning chef the one and only Rocco  DiSpirito has yet another new book. He is a master at them. I LOVE the name…Cook Your Butt Off!  Don’t you?

Let’s go back I first met Rocco on TV he had a reality show called The Restaurant.

I WAS HOOKED. I had to see him and taste his mamma’s meatballs I dined there several times. Sadly it closed but it did teach you a behind the scenes look at a Chef starting in the industry and ALL that goes into opening a restaurant. His food was AMAZING!!!

The book is an easy to use  and he shares some unique recipes. The book is focused on how to lose up to a pound a day with fat-burning foods. I always wondered what they really are. 

And if you like and need gluten-free recipes…you are going to be a happy foodie camper.

Allow me to tempt you with his: Apple,Lime and Basil Smash …is your mouth watering? It is only 37 calories per serving.

BLT Salad…I LOVE a good BLT do you?

Chicken Teriyaki with Sugar Snap Peas for a healthy take-out at home!

Chocolate Mint Thins his version of the old Girl Scout Cookies…easy and just 55 calories per serving. I am going to make them ASAP.

Guys and Gals…

Turn your kitchen into a gym,and burn calories with HIM as you cook.

Rocco’s looking ever so handsome,lean & mean and BETTER than ever.

GET HOOKED…get the book.
