Fruit Smoothie Time

Looking for a super healthy kick-start to the day or an energizing snack? Get creative with smoothies!!! Here is a basic outline of what you should be putting in your smoothie to make sure it is filling and satiating. Fruit Smoothie

  • 1/2 cup fruits
  • 1 cup liquid (water, (homemade) almond milk, WHOLE organic milk, plain FULL FAT yogurt, etc…
  • 1 tbsp seeds (flax, hemp, etc…)
  • 1 tbsp FAT (coconut oil, flax oil, etc…)
  • 1 egg (optional- and ONLY if it is pasturized- you should not be eating commercial raw eggs)
  • 2 tbsp goji berries (optional- gives a blast of anti-oxidants!)
  • 1/4 cup oats (optional- I would skip this if you are trying to loose weight)
  • Combine all ingredients in a blender, blend, and enjoy!

*Basically you can add in whatever is in your fridge or cupboard that you think will positively contribute to getting fuel/nutrients into your body!

See you in the Kitchen

What’s in your Peanut Butter?

Have you ever thought about what is in your peanut butter? The obvious answer would be peanuts, right? Well take a look at the label. Chances are, if you’re not deliberately buying a natural peanut butter, it will be filled with sugar, salt and hydrogenated oils.

Peanut Butter is made by grinding up peanuts. This combined with it’s natural oil, creates the most delicious spread. Let’s keep it simple! Cut out the unnecessary stuff and bring it back to the basics.

For example- Kraft Peanut Butter Ingredients: Select roasted peanuts, soybean oil, corn dextrin, sugar, hydrogenated vegetable oil, salt. Everything after peanuts is just not necessary- and is added to give it a longer shelf life and more “flavour”.

Be wary- even if labels claim to “natural”, ALWAYS check the ingredients to make sure!!!!
