Hey guys, how has your Saturday been? Mine’s been great. This morning I was feeling inspired by Kris Carr’s “Crazy Sexy Diet” to get some greens in for breakfast. Since I don’t have a juicer….yet, I opted for a smoothie.I know this looks like green sludge, but it tastes great. Really, it does.
Into the magic bullet:
2 big handfuls of organic spinach
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 c of frozen mixed berries
1 c almond milk
-mixed organic greens
-2 diced organic Roma tomatoes
-1 c quinoa
-Tangy Tahini dressing, drizzled on top
Tangy Tahini Dressing
-1/4 c + 1 1/2 tbsp of Tahini (the rest of the opened jar I had)
-2 tbsp EVOO
-3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
-1/2 tbsp tamari
-2 tbsp hemp seeds
-3 small cloves garlic, minced
-1 tbsp lemon juice
-2 tbsp water
-1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
-fresh ground pepper and sea salt to taste
Place everything into a mini chopper/food processor/blender and combine until smooth.
After our walk Jewel got a bath and I got a snack. With the spring like weather we’ve been getting comes mud and it’s hard to avoid it. After cleaning Jewel up I pulled out the breakfast cookie I had prepped prior to leaving.
-1/3 c rolled oats
-1/2 scoop of vanilla Vega protein powder
-1 tbsp almond butter
-2 tbsp almond milk
-1/2 mashed banana
I mixed the ingredients all together then spread on a plate in the shape of a giant cookie and stuck it in the fridge. When I got back I ate it sprinkled with chia seeds. It tasted like a cookie! It’s green because of the Vega protein powder.
For dinner tonight I did my take at Vegan Mac & Cheese. It was creamy and good. I’ll post the recipe soon. I’m off to see if I can find an old sock and some rice to make a heat pad for my ankle. Then I’m going to stretch and do some active release on my Extensor Digitorum. The chiropractor showed me how to do it on myself.
