Being part of the Beauty Detox tribe, you quickly come to realize that we take a stand for what we believe in. This is by the choices we make and the way we live our life. This is what I always take into consideration when coming up with new recipes for you guys.
My goal is to help you make choices that are simple and easy to make. I also want to make sure they are great additions to your daily food choices.

Foods We Must Buy Organic: Berries
I know we can’t always afford to purchase all of our ingredients from the organic section. However, there are foods that we should always look for in the organic version. Berries fall into this category.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) publishes a Dirty Dozen list of produce items to get organic. This list can help you avoid upwards of 80% of pesticide exposure. And likewise, the Clean 15 is made up of foods less important to get organic (if budget is an issue).
Pesticides that soak into fleshy fruits, like apples, can really add to the toxic load our systems have to deal with. This can lead to accelerated aging and lower energy. I first talked about eating organic back with my first book, The Beauty Detox Solution, and have been pushing it hard every since!
With places like Costco offering more organic options, it’s becoming more and more affordable to eat healthier. Yay about that!!
Add your almond milk and all your berries to the blender.

The wild blackberries we use in this recipe are some of the most amazing, antioxidant-beauty gifts from nature to us to ingest. When you sip on this please don’t forget to give a moment of thanks to our universal mother, Mother Nature!!
