"Pancakes"

Posted on April 06 by

I was so craving something "carb" like this morning, so I got creative in my kitchen for breakfast.

I whipped together a batter of 3 eggs, 1.5 scoops of vanilla protein powder, 1 small banana, 2 TBSP of peanut butter and a packet of stevia ..... and voila..... pancakes topped with raw, local honey. :)

It made four pancakes. I had two which were very filling for 375 calories.

How to Increase Your Vegetable Intake

Posted on April 05 by

If juicing is not an option for you, here are some tips to help make eating vegetables – preferably raw – an easier and tastier part of your life:
 
1. Make them easy and quick to grab for snacks.
 
Wash carefully to help remove dirt and contaminants. Cut larger vegetables into ready-to-go, bite-size pieces.
 
2. Make vegetables the focal part of your meal.
 
Rather than building your meal around meat or other protein foods, start with generous servings of leafy green and cruciferous vegetables. Fill at least half of your plate, and remember, potatoes don't count!
 
3. Experiment with new recipes for raw vegetable salads and stir-fry.
 
Use your imagination and try new combinations or look up recipes online. Mashed ripe avocado makes a tasty and healthy dip for cut up raw vegetables.
 
4. Make it a goal to try at least one new vegetable a week, and find creative ways to add it into your regular diet.
 
See something you don't recognize at your local farmer's market? Just ask. Growers are delighted to share preparation tips and may even provide a sample. As a general rule, the more colorful the vegetable, the higher the levels of antioxidants.
 
5. Sign up for a vegetable cooking or raw food preparation course.
 
Many natural food grocery stores offer free or low-cost cooking and raw food preparation courses. You'll return home with recipes and renewed enthusiasm. Or, look for classes and "how-to" articles online.
