green means GO SMOOTHIE

Green smoothies are a REAL ENERGY booster!!

Green means GO and GO and GO!

This morning at 5 am (I don’t have time for excuses therefore neither do you) I made this green monster!

1/4 of an avocado

1 c or 2 handfuls of fresh spinach leaves (or kale)

1/4 c frozen or fresh pineapple

1/4 c frozen banana or 1/2 small fresh banana

1/2 c plain Greek yogurt (like Chobani or Fage brand)

1 tbsp. chia seeds

1 c unsweetened almond milk

3 tsp. oats

A few fresh cilantro leaves and fresh parsley leaves (basil and or mint would also work)

1 tsp. lime juice

3 ice cubes

Blend very well and enjoy!

Remember you need fuel first thing in the morning!

Smoothies are great source of balanced nutrients!

In other words please put down the Diet Coke and granola bar-that is not AWESOME.

Smoothies are AWESOME!

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce wraps! Love this idea and there are endless combinations you can prepare! Make it fun, think outside of the box…make them your own!

I used :

1 lb cubed chicken breast

1 c corn

1/4 c each onions, celery, carrots, silvered raw unsalted almonds

Seasoning for the mixture:

lime juice, cumin, Badia complete seasoning, cilantro,  parsley, ginger, crushed red pepper, pepper, garlic, 1/4 c lite sodium soy sauce (I would have made it spicier for sure with wasabi, Sriracha  and Red Hot if my son wasn’t eating it too-he handled the above flavors great though!)

I sautéed the chicken first with all the seasonings/juice/sauce and slowly added in the veggies and then spot checked for taste and added more of whatever I thought it needed. Total cook time 20 min. Wrap in iceberg lettuce and serve-I need a little help on my wrapping skills but that will come! Enjoy!!! xoxoxo-Alettuce wrap 3
