Another cookie post but who's surprised 🤷🏻♀️😏 I made @savoringtheflavoring sugar free chocolate chip pecan butter cookies... but with @wild_friends gingerbread PB instead and they came out SO soft and chewy! and underbaked 🙃 HIGHLY recommend (it was like Christmas in my mouth 😊) trying her recipes! ❤️ #savoring50k
Tastes like it's fresh outta Grandma's oven! This @creativenaturesuperfoods apple pie protein flapjack bar is made with zero nuts, and contains 21% protein. The perfect pre-dinner snack from The Aubrey Box 👌🏽 #HelloFitty#fitness#nutrition
Vegan lasagna 🙏🏻 I improvised but the result... if i may say so myself.. OMG haha soooo fckn good 🙈 Made a white sauce with brazil nuts - tofu - lemon juice - basil - black pepper - salt - olive oil and fresh garlic. Made a 'red' sauce with garlic pasta sauce (organic) mixed with red onion - mushrooms - egg plant. Sliced zucchini ribbons and used them with spinach lasagna to make this a bomb ass dish 😁😋🤗 Have a great eve!
Lean Green + Chocolate Smoothie
Anything Green is lower in calories and healthier right?
Both bowls made with bananas, almond milk, blueberries, cashews and coconut chips.
480 kcal, 48 carbs, 27g fat, 7g protein
387 kcal, 52 carb, 16g fat, 5g protein
Carob powder can be used as a healthier chocolate replacement. It is naturally sweet, low in fat, contains calcium, fibre and no caffeine!
The point of this post is that quite often, we see "Green things" (Smoothies, Soups or Bars) and may immediately think:
"GREEN = LOW CALORIE
and the better choice".
In fact, sometimes we may even go for "The Green option" when it's not our preferred choice as we are "trying to be healthy". I know I have😅🙋🏻It's Green!🍀🥒
Extra veggies can never bad right? And they aren't! However, green smoothies etc can often be higher in calories due to calorie dense CREAM, BUTTER, dates, avocado added to make "broccoli soup" or "spinach smoothie" creamier, sweeter or counter the grassiness.
You could have green soup 50% cream.
This is NOT to say "go with the chocolate" but in the chocolate bowl here you can see you already have bananas, cashews, coconut, blueberries, almond milk which in itself is a perfectly great wholesome breakfast.
•Going for Green? Have a quick check of the ingredients!
•Green Smoothie to start your day? You can't beat a homemade one!
•Pick what you actually want to eat, what your body craves. If that's the chocolate one day and a homemade green smoothie the next.
SO BE IT. Balance and Sustainability are the Key!
Lovely smoothie bowls as always by @maxinechann
You'll probably never find a vegan in McDonald's at 2 am after a night out. IF you do , help them their drink was spiked.🍹
Shenanigans last night ended in standing in the rain waiting for the uber, at that point there was no dancing in the rain type of shit for me (so done), and being HANGRY from all that dancing.💃 .
So you can believe how stoked I was to find a few of these mermaid truffles in the freezer.
Kept me from eating everything else in my kitchen at 2 am.😶 Usually if I'm hungry when I get back from a night out , I'll munch on a rice cake topped with Peanut butter and syrup cause peanut butter makes everything peanut better.
So I'm kind of curious what do you guys snack on before you hop in bed after a night out ?
Will drop the recipe in the comments below. 👇
Dinner came late and randomly last night. But it hit the spot. All the veggies!
A friend reminded me that, to the chagrin of my husband, we haven't had a microwave in our house (ok, it's in the garage..) in a little over three months. .
Truthfully, I kicked it out of the kitchen for precious countertop real estate. But I'm also glad to see those waves not around my family and what we eat. It's also forced me to spend way more time at the stove actually cooking. At first it felt like a struggle but it's quickly turned into just how we eat. I'm on the upswing of the learning curve that is cast iron. Is it just me that wonders what you're really supposed to do? Hmm. I use my tea kettle, French press and Vitamix all at least once a day. And try to zen out washing pans over and over. All this is to say that this meal was cooked all in a cast iron, one veggie at a time ... and it was delicious. .
I didn't mean to not have any meat, and I probably should have had more protein? But it worked. Any other #whole30ers former vegetarians/vegans? About a decade ago I was a full fledged vegan. I even worked at Whole Foods. Now I'm a stay at home mom who puts collagen in her coffee. But I still love me some vegetables 😘🥗🥕🥒🍅💚
@Regrann from @cgadventure - It's crazy to think that five years ago today I took the plunge into veganism. I have lost track of how many donuts, waffles, pizzas, blocks of tofu, cartons of ice cream, and thousands of pounds of vegetables I have eaten. Still going strong. #vegan www.steveandandy.com #organic#glutenfree
It's going to be a long Thursday so I'm setting myself up with a hearty healthy breakfast. 💕👌🏻 GF steel cut oats, fresh fruit, chia seeds, flax, pecans and ghee. Plus a wheat grass shot and coffee with my fave ghee. #healthyeating#healthyisbeautiful
