30 days, 30 recipes. if you miss a day, double up on another. no big deal. ingredients should be mainly plant-based, dairy-free, and “clean.” we’re talking greens (and other things from the ground), milk from a nut instead of an animal, and whole grains rather than refined. think fresh and not processed. so start your research and make your shopping list. nows the time to try that vegan salad dressing you heard about or those raw almond butter cookies you saw on the internet. maybe you try some hemp seed in your oatmeal one morning. whatever it is thats new for you--take a photo, list your ingredients and SHARE it. this is going to be oh so fun! it’s a veggie party and everyone is welcome--just let me know if you or a friend wants into the FB group. and oh yeah, our hashtag is #30daysofGOODFOOD....yum on.
I gave up sugar for lent (including fruit, yikes!) but my body woke up begging for fruit today, so I listened (after all, listening to you body is way more important than imposed rules sometimes). It’s a busy day of homework and editing so I grabbed a delicious lunch smoothie from Greenlife Asheville. Try putting these ingredients together at home! Green as green and sweet as sweet could be!
Fill-Me-Up Smoothie (peel, cut, seal and freeze your bananas the night before)
¼ Cup Water Juice from 1 Lemon 2 Apples 1 ½ Frozen Bananas 6 Leaves Of Chard (I typically use 1 or 2 big leaves) 1 Avocado 1 Teaspoon Grated Ginger 1 Teaspoon Spirulina (optional)
In a high-speed blender, put all ingredients in the above order and blend until smooth. Add a little bit of water if needed. If you want it sweeter add 1 date. Drink what you need and put the remaining in your refrigerator for later or bring with you to work.
