Green juices are my life savers. It's THE fastest and easiest way to get them veggies IN! Blend a bunch of washed fresh green veggies with some liquid, lemon juice, herbs, superfood powders, fruits and a sweetener of choice (optional leave out fruits and sweetener when going sugar free) and you are GOOD! 💚 #melissasenduk

Sometimes, you are very careful to watch the volume of your bulk rise, and proofing, and are very precise up until the moment you drop the loaf on its side in the hot Dutch oven and you end up with a bicycle helmet. #fail#stilltasty

#Espaguetis con #pesto de #albahaca 💕🍃 Un clásico que podemos disfrutar de manera especial en verano ☀️ ¿Quién lo ama como yo? 😍 Les dejo mi receta para que se motiven este #lunessincarne !
1 paquete de 400 grs de pasta
3 tazas de hojas de albahaca
Jugo de 1 limón
½ de taza de aceite de oliva
½ taza de crema de leche
1 taza de almendras o nueces
2 dientes de ajo medianos
Sal y pimienta a gusto
Queso parmesano para rallar
En una olla grande, con abundante agua hirviendo y un poco de sal, cocina la pasta por unos 8 minutos a fuego medio, hasta que esté al dente (o según las instrucciones del envase). Paralelamente, con la ayuda de una procesadora o licuadora, tritura y mezcla todos los ingredientes del pesto: almendras, albahaca, aceite, ajo, jugo de limón, crema de leche, sal y pimienta a gusto. La idea es conseguir una salsa homogénea.
Cuando la pasta esté lista, la deberás colar para retirar el exceso de agua. Luego, en la misma olla, vierte el pesto y calienta durante 1 minuto a fuego medio. Apaga el fuego y añade la pasta. Mezcla suavemente para que se impregnen bien todos los sabores en la pasta.
Sirve junto a queso parmesano recién rallado.
By far THE BEST SALAD I’ve ever made😍
Treated myself to a piece of organic fresh salmon and now I can already see all my money swimming away💸🐟
For the salmon: coat a cast iron with avocado oil and let it get super hot, place seasoned salmon skin side up and let it sear for ~5 minutes then flip it over, squeeze some lemon on it and place in the oven to finish cooking (mine was really thick and took about 15 minutes)
#MealPrepMonday for the final week of January! How are everyone’s New Years resolutions coming along? I’m still trucking with my dairy free/ gluten free/ artificial sweetener free month (though you can’t tell from my posts..I’m about a month behind on getting stuff on the blog). Anywho, this week’s menu is full of meals that I prep regularly and it’s a pretty quick one to make. Here’s what I’ve got:
• Blueberry Almond Muffins with egg white slices
• Turkey Chili with Kale
• Pesto salmon with sweet potatoes and asparagus
• Grilled Chicken with Olive Garden Salad

Red beans in garlic & cayenne sauce. .
Recipe & directions for crispy rice cakes: 2 cups leftover rice, 1tbs olive oil, ½ small onion, 4 crimini or white mushrooms diced, 1 egg (or vegan egg), ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp pepper. Dice onion & mushroom & cook in a small sauté pan with olive oil spray. In a separate bowl combine rice, salt, pepper, 1 tbs olive oil, & the cooked mushrooms & onions. Form into small pancakes by hand. Cook on stovetop with cooking oil spray about 12-15 minutes each side (depending on desired crispiness). Serve immediately. Notes: The rice cakes are easiest with white rice but it does work with brown & other rices. If you have a hard time keeping the rice cakes together, you can add a little more fat (oil), or a little more starch (a tsp or so of flour). 2 cups leftover cooked rice yields about 12-15 medium size cakes. .
Miso butter: There are many great recipes for miso butter. Go simple or complex. This one is simple; 2tbs white miso mixed with 2tbs coconut oil. Kept in the fridge or flash frozen if you’re in a rush. .
Red beans in garlic & cayenne sauce: Another staple recipe & in this post, nothing fancy. A can of red beans in its liquid, a can of water, 3 gloves of garlic, 1 crushed cayenne pepper or ½ tsp cayenne powder, salt, pepper, & a pinch of sugar. Reduce for at least 20 minutes. .
One of my intentional habits, (you can find the rest on the blog) for this year is to eat more veggies. This particular habit is one that I'll probably be cultivating for the rest of my life because I'm always finding new ways to enjoy veggies, and squeeze in an extra serving or two. Juicing is one of the ways I love to get more veggies in, and I love the way I feel when I drink green juice regularly. So this year, instead of the unrealistic goals I've had in the past, such as, ‘I’m going to juice everyday this year!’. I’m going with a more relaxed approach of making it a priority to juice once a week. I figure once a week is better than how often I have been juicing, which truthfully is more like almost never. This approach has been fairly revolutionary for me because I've always tried to make new habits in a big sweeping sort of way, only to thoroughly exhaust myself. Instead of my usual 'all or nothing' approach, I've been working on taking smaller steps with consistency. And you know what, it's really hard at first because there's no instant gratification of immediate results, but in pursuing consistency I'm starting to see bigger results than I ever have before! So I hope this inspires you in your intentions/goals/resolutions for this year, and I know you're going to love this green juice because it's packed with nutrients and it's just so good!
