Morning Smoothie

  

I found this Amy Approved protein powder and really like it! One scoop contains 20 grams of protein. It’s plant based, tastes amazing and it’s good to switch things up. I heard that Costco is currently carrying it but also our local CA Fresh has it.

Morning Smoothie:
1 scoop protein powder

1 cup frozen berries (more if needed)

1/2 – 1 cucumber

Spinach – LOTS (fresh or frozen)

1 tbsp flaxseed

Cinnamon

Water 

BLEND & enjoy!

Lunch Idea – food prep!!

  
Thank you Kristy for this great recipe!!  This is a small twist on your plain jane salad.  I would add chicken to complete the meal.  Pour the dressing into the bottom of your glass container, put the salad on top, the lid on & refrigerate.  At lunch time shake your salad & voila – it’s ready!!!

Ingredients:

1lb bison (I buy mine at Costco)

1 onion

Lots of garlic

1 red or yellow bell pepper

Frozen spinach

Frozen fresh roasted corn

Dried cilantro

Dried parsley

Salt / pepper

Romaine lettuce 

Organic corn tortillas 

Guacamole (I found a premade one at Costco & trader joes that I approve of)

1 tomato 

Avocado (if you don’t have guacamole)

Coconut oil 

Brown a chopped onion & garlic in coconut oil for 3-4 minutes.  Add salt & pepper.  Add in Bison & brown always adding in more salt / pepper.  Add chopped pepper, frozen spinach (easy way to sneak in GREENS) & frozen roasted corn.  Simmer and add in dried cilantro, parsley & more salt / pepper.  Put a lid on a simmer.  Meanwhile put coconut oil on your skillet & warm your tortillas slowly.  Wash & get your lettuce ready for lettuce wraps.  Chop your tomato and open up or prepare your guacamole.  Build your tacos on tortillas or lettuce boats & ENJOY!

Easy Dinner – salty pork, carrots & green beans! 

  
This recipe is a staple in our house.  It smells amazing, has a salty / garlicky flavor, makes amazing leftovers, is EASY & best of all its Amy Approved!!!  I take out the pork roast first thing in the morning and put it in hot water to semi-unthaw.  After my morning run I quickly put it into a pot, smother coconut oil on top (paper towel), a generous amount of salt & pepper, chop an onion & throw in, toss a TON of garlic on top & put it in the fridge.  At noon (lunch time) I put an inch or two of water in the pot & bake at 325 for 5-6 hours.  I check it a few times & sometimes have to add hot water.  About 2 hours before dinner I throw in halved carrots, green beans or whatever I have!  

Ingredients:

1 pork roast

1 onion

Garlic (I buy it pre-chopped & just pour it on top)

Salt/pepper

Coconut oil

5-6 carrots

Huge handful green beans

ENJOY!!!
