Post Workout Green Smoothie 

12 Feb

Need a little something to carry you through your busy post workout morning? This has certainly helped me not pass out from fatigue while getting kids carpooled and fed on many a school morning. All you really need is a super duper blender — I’m kinda partial to my Vitamix but each to his own I’m sure you love whatever you happen to have too.

Green Go Juice:

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 green Apple
  • 1/2 small lemon — cut off the rind and freeze the other half for tomorrow 
  • 1 Tbsp peeled fresh ginger, feel free to prep extra and freeze for later
  • 1/2 cucumber chopped 
  • 2 stalks celery 
  • Large handful kale
  • 2 Tbsp powder Stevia 

It works well to prep the fruit and veggies and put them in ready-to-go bags to store in the freezer. Just empty bag in blender after you’ve put in the almond milk. Blend and pour into your favorite big cup. Super refreshing and energizing.

Triple Threat Veggie Burger

12 Feb

Want some veggies with your veggies? Cause you know you can never get enough of a healthy thing right? Especially when you balance that with dark chocolate.

This super stacked burger is my current go to for lunchtime grumblings. I keep all the veggies a fixings prepped and ready to go in the fridge.

Cauliflower Bun:

  • One cauliflower head riced or two Trader Joe’s sized pre-riced cauliflower packages (microwave 8 minutes)
  • 5-6 eggs depending on size of cauliflower, it should look batter like not too dry
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic seasoning (I use one mixed with other spices)

Cook on over medium heat on nonstick skillet, like latkes. Let cool, store in fridge for up to a week in Tupperware. 

Pick and heat your favorite veggie burger. I used the original BOCCA burger this time. Warm two cauliflower buns and top with a little guacamole or hummus (I make my own) and mustard. I then layer spinach, tomatoes, thinly sliced cucumbers, zucchini, bell peppers, burger and sprouts. Not a complicated recipe but those are the best kinds.
