Banana avocado almond milk smoothie

The title says it all. It’s sweet too (cause of the vanilla almond milk). Have a smoothie for dessert or a meal!

Tomato basil garlic juice

I’ve been replacing a meal or two everyday with a juice. I eat like 5 meals a day so that still leaves room for some normal size meals and proper caloric intake.

This ones about to be a tomato basil garlic juice!

Juicing is a great way for your body to absorb the fullest amount of vitamins from your fruits and veggies. It’s tasty too!

Quinoa with basil tomatoes garlic

20130130-144500.jpg

I had leftover quinoa (a superfood) so I tossed it with olive oil, lemon, avocados, tomatoes, garlic, basil and salt- all which are healthy for you!

Did someone say protein, vitamin c, lycopene, iodine, anti inflammatory properties, healthy oils and yumminess? (those are the healthy properties I could think of off the top of my head. I’m sure there are tons more!)

Cauliflower “Mashed Potatoes”

http://steamykitchen.com/20966-cauliflower-mashed-potatoes-recipe.html

This is definitely a recipe i want to try as cauliflowers are among the cruciferous veggie group.   They have tons of beneficial properties like reducing chances of stomach ulcers and stomach cancer, anti-oxidizing, and prevent diseases.

ingredients:

1 head of cauliflower
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons light sour cream
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
freshly ground black pepper
snipped chives

directions:

1. Separate the cauliflower into florets and chop the core finely.

2. Bring about 1 cup of water to a simmer in a pot, then add the cauliflower. Cover and turn the heat to medium. Cook the cauliflower for 12-15 minutes or until very tender.

3. Drain and discard all of the water (the drier the cauliflower is, the better) and add the milk, butter, sour cream, salt and pepper and mash with a masher until it looks like “mashed potatoes.” Top with chives.

Baked Kale Chips

Baked Kale Chips

I love baked kale chips. They’re pretty addicting and oh so healthy.

They’re easy to make- 5-10 min. prep time and 10-15 min. bake time. Check out the recipe by clicking on the photo.

Tips: feel free to use your hands to rip apart the kale from the stem instead of using a knife. also, toss kale in a large zip loc bag with olive oil to evenly coat the kale.
