Show 217, April 1, 2017: Tess Masters, The Blender Girl

Tess MastersPowerhouse blogger and online phenomenon Tess Masters (AKA The Blender Girl) offers up more incredible vegan and gluten-free recipes that help you lead a vibrant healthy life in The Perfect Blend – 100 Blender Recipes to Energize and Revitalize.

Anchored to a master list of nutrient-dense ingredients, each of the twelve chapters addresses specific health goals, such as gaining energy, optimizing protein intake, boosting immunity, losing weight, and reducing inflammation.

“I list (Tess Masters) the foods that help me stay in optimal health, and share a few top-line takeaways for each of them—practical information on their health benefits, and how to prepare, blend, and cook them for amazing textures and tastes.”

“There are three optional boosters listed for each recipe that enhance flavor and/or nutrition. I’ve chosen them to work separately or together, so you can supplement any base recipe with one, two, or all three.”

“There are mind-blowing dishes and drinks, like Red Basil Balsamic Blast, Sexy Celeriac Slaw, Shiitake & Asparagus Lettuce Cups, Artichoke Ace, Lick-Your-Plate Lasagna, and Blueberry & Lemon Cashew Cream Crepes.”

“The food is functional and geared toward flexibility, so you can tailor the recipes to your own taste and requirements to find your perfect blend.”

Want to know what’s the peak of the season in flavor with fruits and vegetables? The first Monday of each month at 9:00 a.m. PT, Tess is on her Facebook page doing an engaging Facebook Live tutorial with Produce Guru Robert Schueller of Melissa’s explaining just that.
