B-fast~lunch~dinner for the day!!
2 c. strawberries
1 c. blueberries
1/2 frozen banana
1 t Pure Planet ~Just Barley Powder
1/2 t. HealthForce Nutritionals~Spirulina
1heaping T. Manitoba Hemp seeds
dash of cinnamon
dash of stevia
a couple leaves of dried mint
blend until creamy!!
Spirulina is an exceptional source of complete protein (60-65% Amino Acids) vitamins, mineral, trace elements, enzymes, chlorophyll, phytonutrients, DHA and GLA and other fatty acids. Unlike animal proteins which are hard on your kidneys, Spirulina is gentle and it has been shown to protect against kidney failure.
Spirulina is an acquired taste, but if you add it to a smoothie it is easily hidden. Find the benefits of Spirulina here.
This is a super breakfast! The fruit is full of antioxidants and vitamins, etc.. The hemp seeds are full of protein and omega 3 & 6's. Click here for the nutritional profile of hemp. Just Barley is one of my all time favorites. It is 100% organic and it is dried at low temperatures..below 80degrees so as to maintain the enzyme integrity. It has no fillers, binders or anything but Barley Juice Extract. It has a very pleasant taste and sometimes I just eat it off the spoon! The 80gram jar has 80 servings, so it is very cost effective. When you don't have time to juice or just want to detox or alkalize your body...drink Barley Juice!!! Here is an article from, "Healing Cancer Naturally" that expounds the benefits of barley grass!
Quesadella with Daiya Cheeses!!!
I made this picture to show you how great Daiya Cheeses melt. I hope that you are able to see this, as I am sure it does not serve it justice. This cheese is creamy and it stretches but does not stick to the roof of your mouth like glue as some of the other vegan cheese do....this stuff is awesome...
Dayia cheddar and mozz. cheese
Ezekiel sprouted tortillas (large)
fresh tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, dash of real salt, lemon juice, jalapeno
Sour Supreme~mock sour cream...dairy free
fresh guacamole~avocado, garlic, tomato, jalapeno, onion powder, lemon juice
Beet Salad & Greens
2 bunches of beets shredded
handful of beet greens shredded
1/3 c. of lemon juice
1/3 c. olive oil
5 large garlic cloves minced
dash of cloves powdered
real salt to taste
when shredding the beet greens I sit aside the greens and dice the stems and add them to the shredded beets.
Mix all ingred except the greens together and let marinate.
on my plate is: beets salad on the side of the beet greens topped with raw sunflower seeds, sliced cucumber, grape tomatoes, yellow bell pepper and sprinkled with Dulse granules...
This was a yummy and filling meal.
This was my menu yesterday. I did eat additional fruits & veggies as snacks and had some lemonade and I never miss my morning smoothie.
Today~most of my family ran in a 5K at one of our local parks. Fun and sweat was had by all!
Enjoy your weekend!
