Healthy food Recipes

Pink Smoothie.
Smoothies are an easy and yummy way to get good nutrition. It is best to eat fruit on an empty stomach so morning is the perfect time for a fruit smoothie. Blend these ingredients together and take this breakfast along with you.

* 1 Cup frozen berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
* 1 Banana
* 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
* 1/2 cup water


* 1 scoop Whey or Soy Protein instead of Yogurt
* 1 Tbsp ground flax seeds
* additional 1/2 cup water if using the protein powder

4. Green Smoothie.
This is the super healthy one. You get your fruits and greens in one drink. By blending your greens you'll be releasing all the amazing nutrients that are often left locked inside unless you chew them extensively.

If you're scared, don't be! Try it once and you'll be hooked. You'll be pleasantly surprised at how delicious this is. Mix this in your blender and take it on the go with you. Sip it all morning for continuous healthy energy! You won't even need coffee if you get in the habit of drinking this!

What I do with this is drink half of it at say 10am and then the other half at 11am. Another side benefit of drinking green smoothies is that they reduce your cravings for junk food.

* 2 bananas
* 1 cup frozen berries (any kind)
* 1 big handful green leafy vegetable (spinach, kale, mache, arrugala, romaine leaves, your choice!)
* 1 cup water


* Spirulina
* 1 Tbsp ground flax seeds
* 1-3 tspn flax oil
* Protein powder (whey or soy) + additional 1/2 cup water
