Eat Your Veggies Green Sauce (vegan, paleo)

Christmas week was the greatest. We had so much fun, spent time with so many of our favorite people. Last year I was in a sleepless fog and barely registered what was going on. This year we have a toddler who decorates trees, sings Christmas songs and loves Santa. I am totally the sappy, cheesy, sentimental parent right now. But this year was just so, so awesome.

Are you starting your day with a bowlful of inflammation?

WHAT IS INFLAMMATION?

Your immune system recognizes foreign invaders (pathogens, bacteria) and fights them off in a process called inflammation. Immune cells produce cytokines and oxidants, which wipe out invading organisms and damaged tissue. This process is good and necessary for our recovery and health. However, problems arise when your body is constantly fighting off offending situations (chronic stress, poor diet, unregulated blood sugar, gut issues) - leading to widespread inflammation.
