A Day of Detox: Afternoon Snack
Notice an energy slump at 2 or 3 pm every day? Instead of reaching for a coffee or a chocolate bar (both of which will give you a brief influx of energy, followed by another nasty crash), try eating a healthy balanced snack, like this a-maze-ing beet & cashew dip from Joyous Health.
Make up a batch of this dip on Sunday and take a couple of tablespoons every day with cut up veggies to work. You'll be satisfied, cleansed, and energetically balanced until dinner!
Beet Cashew Dip from Joyous Health
- 3 beets, unpeeled, cut into chunks
- 2 cups cashews, soaked in water for 3 hours or overnight
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil (evoo)
- Juice of 1 Lemon
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- Black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
Place beets in a covered baking dish with 1/4 inch of water. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until beets are fork tender. Let cool slightly once cooked.
In a food processor, combine beets, cashews, garlic, evoo, lemon juice, sea salt and pepper. Blend until smooth or desired consistency.
Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
