Goji Berries

This month was the launch of Cleanse Cafe with a class highlighting the Top Ten Superfoods for Women!

In preparation for the class, I delved into the history, health benefits, and nutritional profile of ten chosen superfoods. Among them, the goji berry.

I have to admit that I’d never been a fan of goji berries. The texture of the dried berries was often too hard for me. The flavor didn’t quite satisfy. I know people who snack on trail mixes of goji berries, coconut flakes, and nuts or seeds. I was never among them.

Yet as I poured over the information about goji berries from myriad sources, I was both reminded of their phenomenal nutritional attributes and reinspired to try them again–this time in forms that I would enjoy. I created a delicious OhGee! Goji Nakayummy(for my growing line of sweet candies) that I’ll debut at the Sweet Tooth, Bitter Truthclass this Sunday the 21st. And I’m super excited to introduce you to the Ginger Goji Granola that I spent the weekend perfecting. It fueled me for an early Sunday morning hike in the gorge. I know it will fortify your mornings as well.
