We love eating from all colours of the rainbow. The hardest to incorporate is definitely the colour black! There are very few foods that are that deep midnight colour. I can think of black garlic, black rice, eggplant skin, black turtle beans… And then – there’s charcoal! What was traditionally only thought of as fuel for a winter fire has made its way into our diet due to its natural healing properties for your body.
When ingested, activated charcoal works to trap toxins & chemicals so they can be flushed from your system. Great known uses of activated charcoal include as a natural teeth whitener, to aid and improve digestion and bloating, emergency toxin removal, anti-aging and to naturally reduce cholesterol.
Incorporate charcoal into your diet with our recipe for our BLACK FRIDAY SMOOTHIE!
