avocados- i always have ripe avocados in my refrigerator and ripening ones one my counter. you need avocados to add to smoothies and soups, to make dips and even to make facial masks. i use avocado and honey as a skin softening facial mask weekly!!1
tomatoes- this week i plan to make a homemade ketchup and a tomato basil dressing for zucchini pasta. Always great to add to salads too!!
ginger- Ginger is loaded with medicinal properties plus i just love it. great to add flavor to dressings, spice up green juices or make a simple ginger tea.
garlic!!!- Extremely medicinal!!! you should eat loads of garlic every day so the more the better- in juices, sauces etc.
onions- i also love onions so here are a few sweet onions for salads and dressings this week. my scallions are in the frig.
Now for some highlights of my day!!!
Started the day with cardio and equinox barre burn class. i love this class- mix of pilates, ballet and strength training with weights!! Home to make a smoothie. The white stuff is extra protein powder mixed with hemp seeds- i love to use a spoon and chew a little. i only do this with vanilla or chocolate sun warrior because i love the taste!!
14 ounces chilled yerbe mate tea
1 cup mixed berries
2 frozen bananas
1 handful goji berries
1 handful bok choy
1 handful kale
1 big scoop sun warrior vanilla protein
1 big tbsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp dulse
1 tbsp acai
1 tbsp camu camu
Blend till smooth and enjoy. I drank half immediately and half on the way to the water park- 32 ounces total
check out the fun they had at the water park!!!
For lunch i used my creative coleslaw from yesterday to make a collard wrap plus i ate some with kale chips too. i loved the mix of textures with the kale chips and coleslaw- the kale chips were crunchy and the coleslaw creamy!! Great combo!!!
Early sunday night to bed!
be well, kelly
