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!

Sweet & Sour Chicken

My daughter requested sweet and sour chicken for dinner, so I searched the internet for something quick and easy! I either couldn’t find anything quick or I didn’t have any of the items around the house, but I did find one that looked official and tasty here. So I looked around the kitchen and came up this this quick and easy recipe.

 

What I Used:

 

What To Do:

  1. In a large skillet, melted my ghee using medium-high heat.
  2. Added the chicken pieces to the skillet and cook. Season with a little salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the juice and pulp from one (1) large lemon and your honey.
  4. Once your chicken is cooked thoroughly, use an internal thermometer if needed, add your honey and lemon.

And that’s it! If you have more time check out the recipe linked above, it is for a more crunchy sweet and sour chicken. If you are doing the whole30 and want to stay away from the honey, check out this version from Stupid Easy Paleo. Enjoy!
