Cilantro Lime Green Juice and more....

I did a fancy green juice today.  Usually i just throw in all the power sprouts and greens plus ginger and lemon to get loads of nutrients!!   Today i decided to do a simple clean juice.

2 cucumbers
1/2 head kale
1 bunch cilantro
juice of 2 limes
2 inches ginger

Hubby's Morning Smoothie:

Sunflower and Pumpkin Seed Milk
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 frozen banana
1 big scoop healthforce nutritional vanilla protein
1 dropper toffee stevia
1 scoop acai powder
1 tbsp dulse

My lunch was a combination of delish dishes!!
My Broccoli Arame Salad- blog post on Sunday.
Zucchini Noodles with Cheesy Sunflower Garlic Dressing- this dressing is my new fave!!
Cheesy Sunflower Garlic Dressing
¼ cup sunflower seeds
1 ½-2 garlic cloves
1 stalk green onion
¾ cup hemp oil
2 tbsps chick pea miso paste
1 ½ tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 ½ tbsps fresh lemon juice
2 tbsps nutritional yeast
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
Dash of salt

Use Spirooli or Spiral Slicer to make Zucchini noodles.  Add all dressing ingredients to vitamix blender, blend, pour over noodles and toss.  Garnish with a few shakes of nutritional yeast and chopped scallions. 

Plus i had a few bites of Susie Sprout Beet Sprout Salad!!

Tonight the boys drank smoothies with their dinner.  They love drinking their smoothie out of to-go plastic cups so i save them and we reuse.  i know this is not great but they will drink almost anything if they are in those cups!! 

1 cup homemade vanilla almond milk
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 frozen banana
1 tbsp coconut nectar

I'm working on some great menu plans that will be available soon!!!  Back to the creative drawing board!!  i love menu development!!
