Smoothie Kickstarter Guide

A breakfast smoothie is an easy way to ensure you get the nutrients you need to kickstart a healthy day. While there are lots of prepackaged smoothies on the market, creating your own means you can tailor it to your exact nutritional needs and flavor preferences. This is especially true for those of us with allergies, specific nutrient requirements, or dietary restrictions.

As big fans of the mighty smoothie, here are some tips to get your blend just right:

The Base-ics

Your base is the liquid that brings all of the ingredients together. There are so many delicious options to choose from:

  • Almond & Other Nut Milks: If you’re dairy free or vegan, this is a tasty option. From almond milk to coconut milk, and everything in-between, nut milks are a great alternative to dairy milk, and can be counted on to create that sought-after silky texture in your smoothie. For those following low-carb or keto diets, unsweetened nut milks might be an appropriate option. 
  • Oat Milk: A wonderful choice for vegans with nut allergies, oat milks come in a variety of flavors and there are options with sugar and without. 
  • Coconut Water: Hydrating and packed with electrolytes like magnesium and potassium, coconut water makes a spot-on base for your post-workout blend. 
  • Juice: For those of us who enjoy a sweet and citrusy kick first thing in the morning, orange juice is an excellent base. Trying to get your kiddo to drink healthy smoothies? Adding a little juice can make every sip go down easier. 
  • Milk: An oldie but a goodie, milk (especially whole milk), will help give your smoothie a creamy, luxurious texture.

Let’s Get Blended

Now for the fun part! Once you’ve picked your base ingredient, you can pick and choose your favorite additions.

Through Thick & Thin

Smoothies are known for their decadent texture, and that’s where your thickener comes in. Here are some options:

  • Bananas: Filled with phytonutrients, potassium, and more, bananas are wonderful in just about any smoothie. It can help create that thick, creamy texture the best smoothies are known for.
  • Avocado: Great for heart and eye health, avocados are a powerhouse addition that add a luscious silkiness to your blend.
  • Greek Yogurt: An option for better gut health, Greek yogurt is a luxurious thickener if you’re not shying away from dairy.
The Not-So-Secret Ingredients

So you’ve got your base and your thickener, now you can get really creative:

  • Frozen Fruit: If you’re not snacking on fruit during the day, then blending some frozen berries into your smoothie ensures you’re not missing out on their powerhouse nutrients.
  • Vegetables: Not a fan of spinach or kale? Put it in your smoothie and your taste buds won’t ever know. Sipping on a smoothie is a tasty way to get your greens.
  • Flavor Boosters: Try sprinkling some cocoa powder, cinnamon, cacao nibs, and/or vanilla extract into your blend. You don’t need a lot to give it a delicious punch of flavor.
  • Ashley’s Secret Ingredient: Salt! More specifically, Redmond’s Salt. You only need a little sprinkle, but Ashley swears that it completes a smoothie’s overall flavor. She loves Redmonds because it’s the only single-source salt in the United States, which means it’s the least contaminated.

The Add-In’s

Want to start adding collagen to your diet? A smoothie is an inviting vehicle for it. Chia-curious? Throw some in the blender. Here are some more tasty options:

  • Protein powder: From pea protein, to hemp, to whey, there are so many options. Come into RT and talk to Steve about which one might be right for you. 
  • Nut Butter: Perfect for a protein boost, but keep in mind that some nut butters can overpower the other flavors in your smoothie, so you might want to tread lightly unless you love that nutty flavor.
  • Turmeric: A good addition to help fight inflammation.
  • Ginger: May help with gastro issues, nausea, and more.
  • Seeds like hemp, chia, and flax: Super seeds can be a fantastic mix-in for some added nutritional support.
  • Goji berries: Can promote health for your skin, immune system, and eyes. These sweetly-sour berries are a smart add-in. 

There you have it! Any tips you’d like to share? Let us know on Facebook or Instagram. And we should also add, that if even the thought of taking out the blender makes you tired, you can always come in and have RT make your dream smoothie for you.

Cheers!

Happy Non-GMO Month!

Happy Non-GMO Month

October is Non-GMO Month, and in honor of that, we wanted to provide a quick explanation about GMOs: what they are, what’s at issue, where you find them, and what you can do.

What They Are 

GMO stands for a genetically modified organism. In laymen’s terms, a GMO (now sometimes referred to as a bioengineered food), is an organism that has been modified in a lab, resulting in something that would not be found in nature. In other words, it’s something that would have never happened on its own. 

For a more in-depth definition, click right here

What’s At Issue

One issue with using GMOs is that we don’t know what the long-term impact of introducing these lab-made organisms will be on our environment or our health. In addition, innovation in this area is rapid and ongoing. Studies cannot catch up with the profusion of newly-created GMOs entering our world on an increasing basis. 

Another area of concern is that GMO technology is often used to make plants that resist herbicides. This means more potent chemicals need to be used on crops. Those chemicals then enter our environment, and can affect the health of native plants, impacting biodiversity. They also have the potential to create “super weeds” or “super bugs” that are also resistant to pesticides.  

Finally, GMOs are not confined to a handful of commodity crops anymore – they are found in many products, often flying under the radar of regulators. All in all, the effect of GMOs in our environment and our bodies is under-studied even as they proliferate around us. The deleterious potential they hold for our planet is a cause of major concern to many.

Where You Find Them

A lot of GMO or bioengineered foods are used in animal feed, which means they find their way into eggs, dairy products, seafood, and meat.

In North America, GMOs are also commonly found in corn, soy, canola, and sugar beets. This means that many processed foods with corn syrup, molasses, and flavorings, contain GMOs. https://www.nongmoproject.org/newgmos/

What You Can Do

The first thing you can do is look for the butterfly seal from the Non-GMO Project. They have a specific verification process that brands must go through in order to be considered a Non-GMO Project food.

Choosing 100% organic foods whenever available is another way to try to avoid GMOs. Though the technology behind creating GMOs is rapid and ever-expanding, choosing 100% organic foods whenever possible will typically ensure that they will not contain bioengineered ingredients.

The Department of Agriculture has been instituting rules for more transparency when it comes to foods containing GMOs. They created a bill called the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard, however, some have felt that the labeling rules do not go far enough and are continuing to advocate for additional measures. 

There We Have It

Hopefully this clears up some of the confusion. If you want to read more (and we always recommend reading more), check out the Non-GMO Project’s site. They have unpacked a lot of the confusing issues surrounding the use of GMOs in our food.

Visit our store or order online to choose from thousands of certified non-GMO and 100% organic foods. 

Beet Velvet Cupcakes

Beets are the perfect source of earthy sweetness without using any refined sugars. The natural color from red beets eliminates the need to use any food coloring to achieve a red color. If you use a plant-based milk instead of water in the recipe, your cupcakes will turn out more pink than red. With the rich flavor of chocolate, even beet-skeptics will find something to love in these beet velvet cupcakes. If you choose to share, no one will know the secret ingredient unless you tell them.

Come in and treat yourself to their pepperjack and balsamic fig wedges, which use cashews as their base.
  • Natural By Nature: Natural by Nature wants to ensure that their milk is brimming with nutrients.

The result is a process that kills the bad stuff while holding onto the good stuff. It might shorten its shelf-life, but it sure is fresh.

Charity Of The Month

Concerned about the changing environmental landscape of Long Island, a group friends decided to found the North Shore Land Alliance. Beginning in 2003, it has worked to preserve Long Island habitats including, wetlands, green spaces, farmland, historical sites, and groundwater. Through outreach, volunteerism, and education, it has succeeded in protecting over 1,000 acres of land, and continues to advocate for the adoption of better conservation laws. What started as a group of friends inspired to enact change, has become a successful nonprofit with over 200 active volunteers. To see their work in action, just visit the Shore Road Sanctuary in Cold Spring Harbor, where they’ve transformed a former ExxonMobile fueling site into eight acres of thriving grassland.

  2. Mix together wet ingredients.
  3. Slowly mix in Simple Mills Pumpkin Muffin & Bread Mix.
  4. Pour batter into muffin tins.

Gently toss it around a couple of times until the whole muffin is covered. Once covered, place each muffin back on the wire rack to finish cooling.
