No matter how awesome our healthy intentions, we’ve all had days that end face down in a “too much, too heavy” food coma. And for two-season Top Chef star and classically trained chef Josie Smith-Malave, that feeling happened a lot.

“A couple years ago, I realized I was eating a little too well,” she says. But as the founder of the Global Soul Project, where she uses food to educate and inspire underprivileged communities, she knew just how to re-calibrate.

She started with a cleanse from Can Can in her hometown of San Francisco, and deepened her meditation practice. The combo kicked up her energy, leveled her moods, and “brought me out of my head and into my body,” Smith-Malave says.

While she still cops to a weakness for Taco Bell (hey, she’s honest!), Smith-Malave mostly focuses her out-of-the-kitchen diet around simple, whole foods, and never goes a day without whipping up a power-packed green juice. Read on for the recipe that keeps this serious foodie satisfied. —Jamie McKillop
