In my perpetual search for healthy eating on the go, I found Rawxies. And I am super happy for it. These adorable hearts of yummyness were just the breakfast I needed one morning rushing out the door. Try some for yourself!
Infused waters are so wonderful, especially on a hot day. A friend gave me a big stack of fresh herbs from her garden. They smelled so good that I wanted to do something right away. What you will need:
2 long sprigs of fresh mint
1 short spring of rosemary
1 cucumber, about half the skin removed and sliced into thin circles
Place all ingredients in a large jar or pitcher. Add filtered water until full. Cover and set in fridge for at least eight hours. I let mine sit overnight. Try to drink within 24 hours.
This was so refreshing the next day. Yummers!
In addition to the artichoke dip I loved in Spain, was an avocado dip. So yummy and easy. You may already be making it! What you will need:
2 ripe avocados
1 TBS fresh lemon juice, from a lemon
Hot sauce (optional)
Remove pit and peal of avocado and mash the meat. Stir in lemon juice. If wanting a little kick, stir in a favorite hot sauce. Serve immediately with crusty bread. Yummers!
Kale is one of my very favorite foods. Not just because I find it to be delicious, but because it is so very healthy. There are days I actually crave kale and these are always great days for a smoothie. I pack mine with protein too to keep me full for hours.
2 cups almond milk
1 handfull of blueberries, about 1/2 a cup
1 TBS chia seeds
1 handfull baby spinach, about 1/2 a cup
2 TBS raw almond butter
2 medjool dates, seeds removed
4 kale leaves, stems removed, I like purple kale
Place everything in a blender and blend until very smooth. I have an inexpensive blender and blend for about 90 seconds while upping the blend speed every ten seconds or so.
This smoothie can be made with water. Replace the 2 cups of almond milk with 2 cups of water and add a third date.
