It's not (not) easy being green...Yum
Yes, being "green" is THE most important thing you can do for our planet and our children but going green for your body is just as important! We love the way eating green makes us feel and we love the way eating green tastes. The best part? Besides teaching your friends and family that eating well can be incredibly delicious as well as healthy..oh and easy.
Here are a few of our fave (and easy) ways to eat green(s)-
Kale Tacos! For your next Meatless Monday, Taco Tuesday, Worldly Wednesday, Thrilling Thursday or even Fearless Friday these not only hit the spot but fill you up and make you feel divine.
Preheat 375• Take a bag of organic kale and dump it in a bowl. Squeeze on sriracha, drizzle soy sauce (we love tamari) and olive oil and then throw in a handful of unsweetened coconut flakes. Toss well to coat.
Spread in a thin layer on a lightly oiled cookie sheet and toss in the oven for 15min
Throw a 15oz can of white beans (washed) in a pot with garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper and heat until some beans turn golden. Sprinkle on chives or cilantro.
When kale is cooked to your liking take a corn tortilla and throw in kale mixture. Top with white beans, lime juice and avocado...VOILA!
Avocado Pudding (stolen from this post) and from our guru, Nom Yourself. Trust us...You. Will. Freak. Its soon creamy, rich, decadent and nothing like you think its going to be. Just chocolatey perfection. Is that a mustache or are you just eating the whole bowl...again?
2 large ripe avocados peeled and pitted
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/3 non dairy milk (unsweetened)
2 teaspoons real vanilla extract
1/4 maple syrup (real grade A or B)
Dash of cinnamon and sea salt
Mix in blender or cuisenart until smooth and try not to eat it all!
Sriracha Brussle Sprouts are our new jam! Once again The Minimalist Baker got us again. We can not seem to just browse on her insta or site with out printing out every single recipe! This brussel sprout recipe is un(freaking)real! Get the recipe here.
Another incredible recipe thats perfect for a morning pick me up or night time snack is our fave smoothie from our smoooooothie post a few back. The Greena Colada we adapted from our friends at the Punch Bowl in Los Feliz, CA
1 handfull of kale (frozen or fresh)
1/2-3/4 cup frozen pineapple
1/2 lime squeezed for the juice
*hint- we love to add hemp seeds and after workouts some rice protein powder)
Eat green(s) for your way to a healthier you, planet and future.
