I love making smoothies! They are a quick, easy and delicious way to fuel your body with nutrients. I usually switch up my smoothies based on whatever flavor combo I am craving that day, but one of my go-to staples is the classic peanut butter & banana combo!
peanut butter banana smoothie recipe serves 1
ingredients: >>2/3 cup milk of choice (I used Silk brand unsweetened cashew milk) >>1 tablespoon organic natural creamy peanut butter >>1/2 a frozen banana (using frozen fruit is the key to a super creamy smoothie! I cut ripe bananas into chunks, throw them in a zip-lock bag and stick them in the freezer.) >>1 scoop chocolate or vanilla protein powder (optional) >>superfood add-ins like chia seeds, spirulina powder, chlorella powder, ashwaganda, etc. (also optional) >>3-4 ice cubes
Blend all ingredients in a blender, pour into a glass and drink up! You can also add some toppings such as shredded unsweetened coconut, cacao nibs, a crumbled up Lara bar or Bulletproof collagen bite, etc. and eat it with a spoon! 🙂
This curried chickpeas with cauliflower rice recipe is quick, easy and delicious! It’s vegan, gluten free and dairy free, so it’s perfect for animal lovers and those with food allergies. As mentioned in one of my recent blog posts, the turmeric found in curry has tremendous health benefits, making this dish not only flavorful, but also very nutritious. The best part is that this recipe is ready in less than 20 minutes! Oh, how I love quick and easy weeknight dinners.
Ingredients: 1T olive oil 1/2 medium onion, diced 1.5 cup riced cauliflower 1 cup cooked chickpeas 2/3 cup low sodium vegetable broth 3 large handfuls of spinach ½ tablespoon curry powder Sea salt & pepper to taste
Directions: Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, salt and pepper and cook until the onions caramelize, about 8-10 minutes. Add the riced cauliflower and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Stir in the curry powder and pour in the vegetable broth. Stir the pan to scrape up any brown bits. Add the chickpeas and spinach, reduce the heat to a low simmer and cook for another 10 minutes. Add more broth as needed to keep the pan from getting dry. Divide into two servings and enjoy!

Let’s take a look at the superfoods included in this recipe: Maca root is a member of the cruciferous family (think broccoli), and is considered a superfood for its many health benefits. Maca is rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, E, and it provides calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids. Maca is an adaptogen and therefore has long been used to balance hormones in both men and women. It has positive effects on energy, endurance and mood.
Cacao (pronounced ka-cow) is the raw, unprocessed form of chocolate. This superfood is very high in antioxidants, is a great source of B vitamins, and contains minerals such as magnesium, iron, chromium, among many others. Cacao also acts as a natural mood-booster by raising serotonin levels.
