Monday Munchies: Smoothie, Lunch, & Dinner

A full day of food.

Breakfast: Keeping it simply green this morning with a smoothie – the ‘Classic Green Monster’ found in ‘the Oh She Glows’ cookbook.

Includes: almond milk, kale leaves, frozen banana, ice, peanut butter, chia seeds, vanilla extract, and cinnamon (which the Mr. mistakenly substituted cayenne pepper for – and yep; it most certainly adds a kick! — I recommend sticking to the recipe.)

Lunch: Salad; mixed lettuce, spinach, red onion, carrot, celery, pepper, apple, tomato, dried cranberries, a sprinkle of hemp hearts, and olive oil for dressing.

Dinner: Quinoa, Black Beans, & Sweet Potato; I like fixing a big batch of this up on Sundays and eating it with a different mix of spices and added veggies throughout the week.

Basic recipe: cook quinoa; while in a separate large sauté pan soften slices of peeled sweet potato in butter. Add chopped red onion and a clove of chopped garlic. Once softened, add a rinsed can of organic black beans; and once the quinoa has completely cooked – mix together.

Tonight I added fresh springs of parsley, chopped tomato; with basil, cumin, and a dash of paprika.

Enjoy!
