I've been holding out on YOU - Recipes of the Week

February 26, 2015

Okay earthlings, I have to admit I've been holding out on you this week. I have come up with some freakishly good recipes this week. So I'm about to share TWO new smoothie recipes, avo toast and a big ass green salad recipe. 

 

Cherry Beet Bliss Smoothie

1 cup frozen beets 

1 cup frozen cherries

1 cup almond milk

2 cups baby kale

1/2-1 cup fresh raspberries 

1 tsp spirulina

1 tbsp brown rice protein

1 tbsp hemp hearts

2 tsp chia seeds

 

 

Green Overload Smoothie

 

1/2 cucumber

1 head of romaine

2 cups baby spinach

1 cup almond milk

1/2-1 cup H-2-O

1 frozen wheatgrass shot OR 2 servings wheatgrass powder

1 cup frozen mango

juice of one lemon 

2 tbsp hemp hearts 

2 tbsp brown rice protein 

 

BLEND IT UP. And serve cold. 

2 servings 

 

 

The Big Ass Green Salad 

 

2 cups spinach

1 cup chopped kale (dino)

1/2 cup chopped cucumber

10 cherry tomatoes (or more) halved

1/4 green pepper chopped 

1 tbsp pepitas 

1 tbsp sunflower seeds

10 almonds 

sprinkle (lets say 1 tbsp) hemp hears 

1 tbsp nooch (nutritional yeast)

1 avocado, in chunks

 

Dressing - 

1 tbsp olive oil 

1 tbsp ACV

1-2 tbsp lemon juice

salt and pepper, to taste 

 

Massage the greens with the dressing, then add all of the toppings and mix it up! Eat it fresh. 

 

 

Avo Toast

I love avocado toast - there are so many ways to make it, but here is my current fave. 

 

2 slices Ezekiel bread 

2 eggs (make them your fave way)

1 cup spinach 

1 cup kale 

Sautee the greens with coco oil 

1 avocado

salt and pepper, to taste

red pepper flakes, to taste

 

Toast your bread, spread the avocado, season it, top with sauteed greens and seasoning, top with your egg and EAT. So good. 

 

 

I don't know about you but a new goal of mine is to have greens at EVERY meal. So far, I'm doing pretty good but other days - ee, not so good. 

 

I also wanted to mention that I am watching the documentary called Happy. It's pretty sweet seeing what people all over the world say make's them happy. It makes me realize that a lot of us are searching for happiness in all the wrong places. 

 

It talks a lot about dopamine  and happiness hormones, and one of the really interesting things is that across cultures exercise is very important to feeling happy and healthy. As well as having a spiritual connection. 

 

 

I personally loved hearing about a man talking about surfing and how to him surfing is spiritual. It's really cool to see that spirituality comes in so many different forms. He also talks about letting his kids do what they want to as a career, and he tells them to do what they love so they can live a life of tranquility. 

 

I also loooved this image in the movie: 

It is basically talking about how each of us have a certain amount of happiness or a set point that is determined by our genetics. Can you believe that? Our genes play a role in our happiness. BUT we get 40% of our individual happiness from activities we CHOOSE to do, and then only 10% of it comes from our circumstances like income and social status. We clearly have a huge role in how happy we can be. 

 

A professor in the film mentions that there is no such thing as pleasure without pain, and that our nervous system is a system of contrasts. 

 

BIGGEST thing or take away- this film talks about how society teaches and tells us that money will make us happy, but even though income has gone up, our happiness levels have not changed. I think we all need to stop trying to find happiness in money and material things. 

 

I could go on and on about the film, but you should just watch it. It's on Netflix now!

 

Later loves,
