Extreme Green Smoothie

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.

Toasted Coconut Almondmilk

  • 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!

Teddy Bear Toast

Happy Monday!

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? 20170424_081728

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

Enjoy!

Nourishing Smoothie Bowl

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!
