Greensicle Smoothie

Greensicle Smoothie

Here’s an easy and quick breakfast or snack to help you get through your day. My son doesn’t like leafy greens, so I’ve been sneaking them into his diet but using smoothies. So far, it’s working. We typically have smoothies with hard boiled eggs for breakfast.

What I Used:
1/2 cup of Water
1/2 cup of Almond or Coconut Milk
1 handful of Spinach
1 handful of baby Kale
1 cup of sliced Strawberries
1/2 of Mango
1 Banana (peeled and then frozen for best results)

What I Did:
1) Placed my water, coconut milk, spinach and kale in the blender and mixed until all the leafy greens were mixed well with the liquids.

2) Added all the fruits (except for the bananas) and blended some more until I couldn’t see any chunks.

3) Last, I added the frozen banana and blended until smooth.

If you decide not to freeze your banana but want your smoothie nice and cold. You can also use ice instead of the water. This may result in needed more almond or coconut milk. Hope you like!

Chicken Fried Cauli-“Rice”

Cauli-Fried RiceReally wanted some fried rice but didn’t want to use a cheat meal or waste some left over grilled chicken, so I came up with this. This is my first time making this recipe and after everyone getting seconds, I will definitely be fine tuning it in the future.

What I used:

  • 1 pound of cooked Chicken Breast
  • 2 heads of cauliflower (about 7 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups of chopped Carrots
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 Bell Pepper
  • 2-3 Zucchinis
  • 3 teaspoons of Water
  • Green onions
  • Fish Sauce
  • Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  1. Chop all the veggies and chicken. I chopped the bell peppers and carrots into small pieces and the zucchini into larger pieces.
  2. Crack your eggs into a small bowl and add three teaspoons of water. Mix and scramble. In a large pot on medium heat (or wok if you have one), add some olive oil. Once your pot is hot, pour in your egg mixture and leave egg flat and let cook for about 2 mins, you may have to push the sides in so all the egg can cook. Remove the cooked egg from the pot/wok and cut into pieces.
  3. Add more oil to your pot/wok and once hot, add your chopped carrots and bell peppers. Mix well. (I put the top on my pot to help them soften a little faster.)
  4. Once the veggies have begun to soften, add the cauliflower.
  5. Season with pepper and add a few dashes of fish sauce. Don’t add too much fish sauce, this stuff can get stinky… you’ve been warned. Stir well. Feel free to add the stop back to your pot when not stirring.
  6. Add the cooked & chopped chicken to your pot and stir again.
  7. Lastly, turn off your heat and mix in your green onions and zucchini. The remaining heat will cook the zucchini. (I didn’t want to over cook it.)

Note: Chicken was previously grilled and seasoned with garlic powder, pepper, oregano and sea salt.

Chicken & Broccoli Scramble

I’ve been working on my meal prepping when I came up on this little number I had for breakfast (but it could easily become a lunch option).

What I Used:

  • Left over chicken breast from the night before (which I chopped into smaller pieces)
  • Left over broccoli
  • 1 egg
  • chopped onions
  • pepper

I placed the chopped onions in a pan/skillet with a little bit of olive oil and seasoned with pepper. I then added my left overs to heat them up a bit. Once I felt everything was good to go, I added the egg and scrambled and mixed everything up. After the egg was cooked, I removed from the heat. As a side, a full apple and almonds were added. This was one of my paleo/zone (zoleo) meals for the day.

Enjoy!
