Killer dressing suitable for all your side dish and salad needs! Pour over greens, Buddha bowls, sautéed veggies, roasted potatoes...I could go on! Ingredients make up a batch recipe that can be stored In the fridge. This fabulous combination meets major tastebud expectations and is loaded with one of my most favourite health food ingredients—Nutritional yeast! High in protein (8g per tablespoon!) and full of vitamin B12, B6, and Folate which are important nutrients to help us keep a healthy mood balance, and support immune function too 😊😀😄😆🤧🤒😷.
Can be used to dress any salad but mine shown here contains a mix of regular and baby kale, 1/2 diced red pepper, 2 slices turkey breast (can swap for chicken), 2 tbsp from leftover cooked lentil/rice blend, 1 tbsp goat cheese and 1 tbsp grated carrot to top.
-1/2 cup nutritional yeast
-1/3 cup water
-1/3 cup Tamari sauce
-1/3 cup Apple cider vinegar (Bragg’s brand)
-1-2 garlic cloves, diced fine
-2 tbsp tahini paste
-1 1/2 cup avocado oil or olive oil (keep in mind if you use olive oil it will go solid in the fridge). Use avocado for best results and for extra healthy fat benefits.
*Place all ingredients into a blender or small food processor. Blend until ingredients well combined.
Shake well before each use.
The great go-to pancake with no need for flour. This recipe is a huge hit amongst my Mom friends, which is how it came my way, and to be honest would be a crime not to share with all of you. You will love it and your kids will love it. Definitely a great swap for anyone avoiding gluten, wheat or grains altogether.
2 eggs, beaten
1 tbsp almond or other nut/seed butter
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 tsp butter or coconut oil
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
1. Mash banana in a medium sized bowl.
2. Add eggs, and beat to combine.
3. Add nut butter and combine with mixture. Option to also add half or full scoop protein or collagen powder to boost protein. *2 eggs + nut butter will give you about 16g protein.
4. Heat skillet on stove top at med-high heat, and add coconut oil or butter to pan.
5. Pour mixture into pan and cook like a pancake! Reduce to medium heat. Flip once you see the mixture start to bubble (about 4-5 mins on first side). Option to make one large or two smaller cakes.
1 cup greens of your choice
3-4 ice cubes
3-4 dates, pits removed
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp flaxseed
1 cup coconut or almond milk
1 tbsp coconut or MCT oil
1 tbsp almond butter
1 heaping tbsp collagen powder (I like Organika brand)
*Blend all ingredients and then pour smoothie into a bowl.
1/2 banana or 1 smaller banana sliced
1 tbsp nut butter
1 tbsp walnuts, chopped
1/2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp coconut flakes
Sea salt to taste (about 1/8 tsp)
*feel free to mix and match toppings or add some steel cut oats with toppings. However, protein profile is based on these exact ingredients.
This recipe gives you 23 grams of protein! If you choose to forgo the collagen powder, add an extra tablespoon of chia which still gives you 16g.
Five Fabulous reasons to add Collagen powder:
*An easy way to get 9 extra grams of protein in your meal, with no added sugars or flavours often added to many protein powder blends. No taste detected.
*Soothe and repair your digestive tract if you suffer from digestive health conditions, like IBS.
*Firm, revitalize and smooth skin.
*Reduce stiff and painful joints from Arthritis. Build more collagen to support joint health.
*Last but not least, soothe your nervous system, sending both calming and motivational signals derived from its amino acid profile. For highly anxious individuals getting high dose protein is especially essential at breakfast to help your adrenal glands and stress hormone output chill the f#%k out so you can feel more at ease about tackling your day.
Happy smoothie bowl making!
