Happy Monday! As I mentioned on the first Must Try Monday: Weekly Recipe Find post, I’m the first to admit that designing recipes is not my forte. I often thought that as a holistic nutritionist that should be part of the package, but it really isn’t.
As it turns out, I’m able to recipe find, alter recipes to improve nutritional value or resort to 1 of the 5 recipes I have stored in my memory. And, yes, one of these 5 recipes include chopping vegetables, throwing them in a bowl with olive oil and apple cider vinegar and calling it a meal.
WELCOME BACK TO MUST-TRY MONDAY
Every Monday, you can expect a post that includes healthy recipes that I have found through my searches the week prior. I will always offer my input on substitutions if the recipes are not already gluten-free or if there is an ingredient I would swap out to increase the nutrition profile of the meal.
This week I found some top-notch recipes.
Banana Hemp Faux-Gurt - from Meghan Telpner’s website. A delicious non-dairy breakfast filled with Omega 3′s from hemp seeds – see Celebrity Superfoods: Hemp for more info on the amazingness of these seeds. Most of us are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids because our body cannot produce them from other fats, therefore we need to ensure we eat em up.
Strawberry Smoothie - from Tuja Wellness – This smooth operator is High on Herbs. Fennel helps with movement of the digestive system (flatulence and diarrhea). Strawberries are packed with vitamin C!
Red My Lips Beet Soup - from Sprout Organic Market located in North Vancouver. Simple, delicious, and a liver detoxifier. Did you know the liver has more than 561 jobs? WOW let’s take care of it!
5 Ingredient Avocado Pudding – from PaleOMG – she’s amazing and so is avocado pudding.
Make, enjoy and let me know how you like these recipes!
With Love & Health,
