The cleaner your food, the cleaner your physical and emotional energy. Eating a colorful rainbow of vegetables and fruits as well as nuts, seeds, whole grains and legumes infuses your body with a variety of healthy vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phyto-chemicals. A healthy body helps to keep your stress levels at bay.

2 tsp organic maple syrup

1 tbsp fresh grated ginger (½ tsp ground)
