Totally Earthsprout Approved

Hiya! Welcome caring cuties to the new and improved site á la Earthsprout.

Boy what a journey life is, aint it not? In a little more than a year I have moved to Andalusia, lived in the sun 100% aligned with the garden and then moved back to Sweden and my roots. (And this time I know that I´m actually staying!) Earthsprout has grown in a pace that I can barly describe or even grasp.

The Golden Detox Drink on #GDD

Anyhow, I invite you to click around like a crazy person on this new site. Read some old posts (though I have only included those that are no older then a year), learn fun and fab things about my journey under the tab ”Elenore”, get to know what my company and work is all about under the tab ”Earthsprout”, pin some recipes but above all: Sign up for the Greenylicious newsletter and get a free copy of the Basic Bible á la Earthsprout. You do not want to miss out on that treat I´m telling ya!

I´m not really sure what to say except that I´m so so grateful to be able to share this Earthsprouty love with you all! And with that said, let me present the second list of Totally Earthsprout Approved things that have in some way touched my heart or/and made me giggle. Oh, and I´ll share the recipe of my morning routine, the golden detox drink as well!

The Golden Detox Drink on #GDD

Golden Detox Drink

I posted a picture on a cup of this drink on facebook a while a go and got a ton of questions, so I thought I share the recipe here. This is what I drink upon rising, come rain come shine I try to make this each and every day. When I do, my day starts off right and it seems like everything just falls into place. Turmeric and its major active ingredient curcumin are among the top most clinically studied spices and herbs today with many many positive effects on our body’s. The chili, turmeric, ginger and lemon all kicks in to both strengthen and awaken your digestive & immune system, the heart, skin etc etc etc. This drink is a real anti-inflammatory and cleansing one and when you start incorporating this routine in your life you will notice great effects from it for sure!

  • 2 cup hot water
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric
  • 1/2 small tsp powdered ginger
  • 3 drops Stevia concentrate
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • Juice from 1/2 small organic lemon

Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and while letting it heat up, put the rest of the ingredients (and the other 2 cups of water) in your largest favorite tea cup or jar. Then open the window or if you live on the countryside, the door and soak up some fresh air while drinking this Golden drink.

I would love it if you come over to Facebook and Twitter to tell me if there is anything you would like me to add/improve on this new site! You are the ones I wish feel loved, hugged and inspired when clicking around here.
Bliss and Greens!

    I was wondering what camera you are using to take such inspiring pictures?

      How great to hear! I love it! I´m using a Nikon D90 but we all know it has little to do with the camera and a lot to do with the feeling and intention behind it! Good luck my friend!

    Your guest post at GKS looks postively astounding. Where do you get hold of organic pistachios, though? Alas, they are as beautiful as they are expensive. Even so, I want to get my hands on them.

    Peace, love and pistachios

    I have been a quiet follower but i wanted to write and tell you how lovely your new site is and how much i appreciate all the information i get here, o have tried many of your recipes and i have always love them.

    i would like to try this morning ritual of yours, it will be a week before i can get stevia do to my destination but i have everything else, can i replaced it now as i am eager to start it today with anything else?

    thank you again elenor.

      Hi Nadia!
      Wow, I had no idea that you were one of the marvelous Earthsproutlings! Makes me so happy!

      How great that you´ll incorporate the golden detox drink – it´s a gem – You can always make the drink without stevia but then i recommend you take a little bit less Turmeric and Ginger!

      Good luck and see you around!

    Hi Elenore,

    What a great website – lovely yet earthy (as if these two were opposites..!), so very much inspiring!

    I have a question regarding the detox drink, sorry in advance if this gets lengthy!..
    I have been drinking lemon water for a while now and really love what it does to the body as well as the skin! But suddenly, my routine felt too sour in the morning and I started drinking lemon water during the day. Unfortunately, I recently started to have acne (and I’m not a teenager any more, so go figure how annoying that is!) – and I’m a little weary to use cayenne and turmeric. Should I still go for your recipe? And should I start to go for the morning pinch again or keep up the during-the-day-routine?

    Thank you so much in advance! :-)

      Hi Anna!

      Yes, it´s wierd how we are trained to think of eartht as something dull.. So THANK you for your words! I´m so glad that you can sense my intention towards this space.

      As for your Q.. I think that if your body said no to the sourness it´s good that you took a break. That can be all it takes sometimes to get back on track. I think you should go ahead and order the Stevia concentrate (SO sweet) since it makes all the difference in this recipe! This drink in the morning surely has the capacity to clear up your skin again, love!

      Good luck and great to hear from you!

    This looks fab. I have major issues with foot cramps and have heard that turmeric is great for that, so I will be heading out to the store to pick up the stevia.

    One question, I always have a ton of fresh ginger on hand, do you think I could grate it or just drop a knob in rather than use ground ginger?

    I’m new to the site but love it so far. Best of luck!

    • ElenoreEarth
      30 maj, 2012

      Hi Tess!

      For sure! You can use fresh ginger! Grate it and squeeze out the juice into your cup of golden detox!

      Love to have you here, honey!

    i’ve been making something similar to this(but never thought to add cayenne– great idea!), except that i use apple cider vinegar & honey in place of the lemon & stevia. i drink it hot in the morning and cold in the afternoon (sometimes with seltzer instead of flat water– so refreshing!). it’s the perfect pick-me-up!

    Hello! I just came upon your website, and I love, love, love what you’re doing! Thank you so much for sharing your valuable knowledge on these natural, calming foods for the soul. I love how cheerful and optimistic your posts are too, I feel like going away to the countryside now! :)

    Quick question about this detox drink- I have never had Stevia and am yet to get my hands on some. In the meanwhile, can I substitute it with honey?

    Thanks in advance!

    • ElenoreEarth
      15 augusti, 2012

      Oh.My.Word! Yes! Off with you to the countryside. Go foraging and we´ll probably meet in the woods;)
      You can absolutely substitute with honey but the GDD works best with stevia since its extreme sweetness really balance the bitter turmeric taste.

      Great to have you here, Sarmishta!

But the only question I have is about the powders. Mine won’t dissolve all the way and the majority of it settles to the bottom. I am using (not boiling but almost)hot water…but just can’t seem to get everything to dissolve. Does yours?

    Do you have any tips on cleaning turmeric out of things – cups, cloth towels, knives?
    You have given me this new appreciation for turmeric, fresh and powdered, which I am so grateful for and now its gotten in and on everything. As much as I see its natural beauty, that gorgeous yellow works its magic in so many ways, I still wouldn’t mind a way to clean it up.
    Any tips would be wonderful.
    Sending all kinds of good love and energy your family’s way.

    I am a newcomer to your site and am so happy I came accross it. I am eager to start the GDD and have my shopping list next to me ready to go! Just a couple of questions …… can I make a large jug of this drink and keep it in the fridge ? and can I drink it cold each day as being in Australia (and going through menopause) IM not keen on hot drinks.
    Thankyou so much for your wonderful site, which I will enjoy reading in full when i return from shopping !!

    I know I’m late t o this post, but I’m confused as to the recipe and really hope you will clarify some. You heat up 2 cups water, and while you’re doing that you add all the ingredients to a cup/jar, along with the 2 cups cold water. And then what? Add the boiling water to that mixture? 4 cups of water seems like quite a lot. You drink it all?
