When I am on the go and don’t have time for a snack or meal, I like to whip up a quick, easy, and nutritious green smoothie.
All you need is a greens-based smoothie powder, like Amazing Grass’s Green Superfood. I love this green powder so much! It contains a blend of organic greens such as spinach, wheat grass, spirulina, and broccoli, and it also has a blend of fruits including acai.
- One scoop of Green Superfood
- Milk or almond/coconut alternative (I prefer Califia Farm’s Coconut Almond Milk blend)
- One banana
- Handful of baby kale or spinach (whatever fresh greens I have)
- A drizzle of agave
Just blend and enjoy!
Nothing makes Monday mornings harder than realizing it’s only Monday! This morning before I left for work, I decided to whip up my normal breakfast with a twist. I turned my sunflower toast into a cute teddy bear toast. I like to make sunflower toast in the mornings for breakfast or as a snack because it is fairly healthy, quick, and easy. Did mention it’s really yummy?
To make my simple teddy bear toast:
- Slice of toasted wheat bread
- Sunflower spread for the face
- Slices of bananas for the nose and ears
- Blueberries for the eyes
- Hemp seeds for extra flair and flavor
With warmer temperatures approaching this week in L.A. I decided to make a smoothie bowl. I love experimenting with different kinds of recipes in the summer. They are so versatile and easy to make, the possibilities are endless! Today I made a green smoothie bowl that was super light, quick, and delicious!
Dang you, sinking bananas! (I didn’t have enough ice…)
Things you will need for a green smoothie bowl:
- Coconut water
- Half banana
- Chia seeds
- Hemp seeds
To make the smoothie, blend spinach, coconut water, half a banana, a little ice, and honey. The toppings are bananas, chia seeds, hemp seeds, and a drizzle of honey. Enjoy!
