Quick Almond Milk

Never fret again about being out of almond milk. Whip up a batch in a flash and enjoy all week long. Almonds help fight muscle soreness, constipation, blood pressure, and provide a nice source of protein and fat.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted almonds*
  • 3-4 cups water
  • Dash of sea salt
  • 2 tbs Raw unfiltered honey or to taste

*roasted unsalted almonds provide a nuttier taste.

Recipe

Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend until liquid appears white (approximately 1 minuet). Strain the liquid through a cheese cloth or nut bag to filter out the almond meal. Enjoy!

Optional additions

  • Cinnamon
  • 3-4 pitted dates (adds sweetness)
  • Cacao powder for chocolate almond milk

Strawberry Mountain

Yep it’s a pint of strawberries and I’m eating them all! Great first thing in the a.m., it’s my go-to post workout breaky. Drizzled with a little honey and cinnamon for immunity and inflammation.

Strawberries also have magnesium to help with muscle soreness and constipation, are low glycemic index, rich in antioxidants, fiber, and potassium. Whether athlete, mathlete, or momlete, strawberries pack a significant nutritional pinch. Also known to whiten teeth–woot woot!!

Eat them all it’s all good–no calorie counting when the right foods are going in!

Savory Breakfast Plantains

I love plantains and in my opinion, they are best done savory instead of sweet.

Ingredients

  • 1 plantain sliced or chopped
  • 1tbs garbanzo flour (or other GF flour)
  • 1tbs nutritional yeast
  • 1 flax egg (1tbs ground flax mixed with 3tbs hot water)
  • 1/4th cup chopped kale
  • 2tbs grape seed oil
  • salt and pepper to taste.

Recipe

In skillet over low/medium add grape seed oil and plantain, mash. Next add all ingredients except kale and mash again. Add kale on top and cook 3-5 minutes, gently break apart with spatula and flip. Cook another 3-5 minutes. Break apart with spatula again and serve!
