I’ll preface this by saying videos are certainly not my calling 😆 SO here’s a quick af video on the easiest breakfast smoothie you’ve ever seen.
. (Yes, my face is meant to be cut out, I’m having a bad skin day)
For those following, it’s our Healthy Brekkie Week for our ‘Train For Your Brain’ 12 Wk Challenge and we’re all going to share a Brekkie recipe at the end of this week! I thought I’d kick start it all with my fav Dairy Free Weetbix smoothie 🤤
Getting ready to brave the icy streets of memphis to make it to class this morning❄️but first sippin on a beet greens and blueberry smoothie😋it has a handful of frozen beet greens, handful blueberries, water, ice, one scoop @amazinggrass protein powder, 2 T toasted seed mixture (also on top), and cinnamon👍have a fab day! #dontstopbeleafing
What do I put in my morning smoothies?? I get asked this a lot as I basically start my day with a smoothie 24/7! My base is frozen banana and the liquid is either water or homemade almond mylk, depending on my budget and laziness levels! Then I add frozen berries, cinnamon (good for blood sugar levels) chia seeds, mixed seeds (like flax and sunflower - an affordable way to get omegas) raw cocoa, Vegan protein powder (normally hemp or hemp seeds- it’s most affordable) baobab powder (tastes yummy and best source of calcium) and a shot of green powder (alkalising) I like my smoothies thick - nothing like eating desert for breakfast! You could add oats and lots of other superfoods and milk substitutes. Quick and yummy!! ❤️🍓🍌
The weather is finally warming up and my body has been instantly craving smoothies. It honestly taste like a cream pie! 🍰 it's that good!
Lion’s Mane is a cognitive enhancer. It has been shown to support memory and concentration. Best to drink it when studying, writing or reading.
Do it! 1/2 frozen banana + 1/2c steamed then frozen cauliflower + 1/2 steamed then frozen sweet potato + hand full of raw organic cashews + 1tbs @kitehillfoods vanilla yogurt + @sproutliving original epic plant based protein + 1 packet of @foursigmatic lions mane + dash of @simplyorganicfoods cinnamon + 1tsp @navitasorganics chia seeds + pinch of pink himalayan salt + water/ice. Topped it with bee pollen and that's it! Give it a try and let us know what you think 💕
Trying to keep cool today with this berry and almond smoothie🍓I love adding toasted almonds to a smoothie for a bit of a different flavour to your usual berry smoothie🍓🍯🍌 Recipe:
1 frozen banana
1 handful frozen raspberries
1 handful frozen blueberries
1 cup almond milk
1/3 cup toasted almonds
Blend everything together
Woke up to a text announcing two hour delayed opening at work today....this crazy weather has some perks! I took advantage of the extra time and whipped up an almond berry oatmeal smoothie! To be honest I added the oatmeal on top for looks but I mixed it in, trekked to work, and indulged and after the oatmeal has some time to soften it was a delicious addition of flavor and texture! Ingredients: frozen berries and banana, almond milk, almond butter, chia seeds, and oatmeal! #startyourdayright#smoothierecipes
🍓🍌🍓🍌Strawberry Banana Almond Milk Smoothie 🍓🍓 Let's Boost my iron (absorption!) Ok guys, I have a confession to make today. Not the easy one. After 10 months living an energising vegan lifestyle my body is crying HELP! 😢I miss iron SO much that the doc put me on supplement for 6 weeks.
Bouhhhh !!! So what did I made wrong on that way to a 'healthier me?' My husband blood test is perfect ! That's just ME !
Well, my husband don't drink coffee at all - and he is a man and need less iron too. I drink LOTS of coffee during the day. Did you know that coffee decrease iron absorption by 50%-90%? I didn't. I just learnt this so basically all that lovely iron plant powered food I was eating from oat, beans and green leafy veggie was 'useless' for my body. Well, in term of iron absorption.
So this smoothie is my new morning drink. No more coffee for morning. I am having this simple almond milk smoothie made with unsweetened Almond Breeze Almond Milk. It is loaded with 144% of vitamin C which defo helps to absorb the iron from my oat and soy milk.
Others switch I made to load my body with 💪💪 plant based iron 💪💪is to introduce tempeh, blackstrap molasses, dried apricot, spirulina, more lentils and more chocolate 🍫🍫 Haha I shouldn't have too much problem with that one !
For now, I didn't had meat, just few eggs that is why I qualify myself as vegetarian. But mostly 95% of my plate is still plant based food as it is what I cook for my family. I feel better with the iron tabs supplement, no more leg cramps, not breathless anymore and I can run again.
But I don't want to live on iron supplement. I want to live an happy 😊 plant based life FREE of iron supplement.
So if you are vegan for a while, tell me did you get anemia at some point ? How did you manage that ?
DROP ME A COMMENT! Carine.
Tummy has not been feeling well so made an easier to digest breakfast this morning.
I grew up with frequent digestive issues, which subsided after I switched to a more plant-based vegan diet. My tummy is still sensitive sometimes and I may have eaten something that was off.
What I added to the smoothie and why:
• bananas - easy to digest, nutrient rich and creamy
• pineapple and papaya - source of digestive enzymes
• yogurt - source of probiotics, I choose a plain unsweetened dairy free variety.
• turmeric and ginger - help with digestion and inflammation
• chia seeds - source of fiber and gels up in intestines to promote passage
• blueberries - for extra antioxidants
• protein powder - optional, to turn the shake into more of a meal. I use a vanilla flavored vegan protein.
En smoothie som innehåller frukt, bär och blad i många färger med olika egenskaper och som kompletterar varandra! 🍌🌱🍓🌑 Dessutom extra god tack vare 1 msk @greenchoicesverige jordnötssmör! 🥜Recept → fridaskök.se. #smoothie#dairyfreesmoothie#cashewmilk
🥂HAPPY NEW YEAR !!! That 🥑Green Avocado Smoothie is what I had this morning after a 5 km run💪It is a simple 4 ingredient dairy free smoothie. I blended a cup of frozen pineapple with lots of avocado spinach and almond milk.🤗 I hope you all had a wonderful end of year full of laugh, fun and love❤
I ended up the year staying in the most beautiful place in the South Island of New Zealand #Queenstown with my little family 👨👩👧👧and I feel lucky that the place we rent have a blender to refresh with a smoothie.
😚I feel so grateful about this past year and I want to THANK YOU. You have been more and more to try my clean eating recipes on the blog and it makes me so happy and complete. 😍 .
Little change for 2018: ALL the recipes will be 100% Clean Eating Vegetarian Recipes. There will still have low carb, vegan, gluten free and paleo recipes. But Sweetashoney will be a #meatfree place. I want this blog to reflect who I am and I tested many different diet those past 5 years.
I have been on 100% sugar free + low carb for 2 years which works pretty well for me and then switch vegan for 9 months for the love of animal. This one didn't work so well - I was iron defiencient. I found my path with the clean vegetarian diet: a balance of nourishing recipes mainly based on fresh vegetables, fruits, beans and grains. I feel good and I want to share my new healthy vegetarian life with you.
This year I’m going to make more smoothies!!!
It used to be a daily habit for me that I’m not sure why I stopped doing. Too many other things to do, but I’m going to make this a priority.
I love seeing them go into my kids little bellies, and I really enjoy being creative and making them look pretty!!
Mercy asked for a pink smoothie today. This one just has banana, strawberries, raspberries, macadamia nuts, coconut milk, Heal your Gut Diatomaceous Earth, and some chia seeds and Cacao nibs on top.
It’s pretty yummy!!! 🍓🍓🍓
She’s a healthy one, this road smoothie. She’s got:
*cauli rice (frozen)
* @vitalproteins collagen
*3 tablespoons almond butter
*1/4C pumpkin seeds
*hemp ❤️’s & chia
*vanilla powder, cinnamon, ginger root
Sometimes, you just gotta lean into the funk for the sake of packin’ in some nutrients. I mean, bacon wrapped dates are in my future so....
2017 was the year I decided to start playing with my food again and I’ve had so much fun doing it! I can’t wait to see what 2018 will bring, not only for my sustainable fashion blog but also my creative culinary side that I’ve started to discover 😄 This is the same smoothie base I showed you guys recently: fresh pineapple, coconut milk, frozen coconut and bananas, butterfly pea powder for the blue color and pitaya powder for the pink color. This time I decided to serve it in a pineapple! It’s a bit harder to get the pineapple out when you cut it lengthwise🤣but it wasn’t impossible! It was so fun to eat it like this too. Next I want to use one as the bowl for some homemade pineapple fried rice. It brings back memories of when I studied abroad in Rome and the one Asian restaurant in our neighborhood that delivered had the BEST fried rice and they served it in a pineapple! (And yes, you do stop wanting Italian for every meal if you’re there long enough 😂)🍍🍍🍍
Llego la Navidad 🎄 y con ella la corredera a comprar regalos, fiestas, reencuentros. Las tiendas abarrotadas de gente hurgando en busca del atuendo Perfecto para lucir espectacular en la noche de navidad o Año Nuevo. Nos preparamos para los excesos y suele pasar que hasta ponemos de lado los jueguitos verdes matutinos, por que por estos días no tenemos tiempo.
En esta navidad 🎄 te invito a también buscar dentro de ti ese mejor regalo que puedes dar y darte.
Revisar en tu lista de amigos a quienes no has llamado hace tiempo y llámalos
Planea dar regalos que lleven tu energía, cuestan menos y valen más.
Busca tiempo para ti, para meditar, para hacer silencio y escucharte.
Escribe en un diario las vivencias maravillosas del 2017 y las lecciones de vida que recibiste.
Que tu arbolito interno esté adornado con alegría, felicidad, esperanza, paz, gozo y fe.
Un abrazo amoroso para ti ❤️
Hey everybody! This weekend I'm prepping for final exams. I am then taking finals on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. After that I'm free for about a whole month!!! I started to lose my steam today so I decided to power up with a chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie. Five simple ingredients: cocoa, chunky peanut butter, two bananas, plain almond milk, and a handful of ice cube. It's pretty cold here, it's been hovering around thirty two degrees (Fahrenheit) but it hasn't rained so there's no snow, and the skies are clear. Every morning brings another beautiful sunrise. The sunrise on Thursday was so beautiful: Mount Hood was clearly defined and white, the clouds were pink and orange, the sun was coming up behind the mountain, and the sky was a clear blue. I wanted to take a picture, I even pulled over but my phone camera made it look like a dull orange and the mountain couldn't really be seen. So here is the quandary I'm facing: when I buy a nicer camera should I go with the Nikon D3300 or the Canon T6? I've done some research but I want some opinions on which takes better quality photos. I got hooked on photography with a digital photo class I took and a black and white film photography class that I am currently taking.
Can't think of a better way to kick off a chilly morning than with a smoothie bowl am I right? 😬
