acai smoothie bowl toppings include (but not limited to): caramelized buckinis, pistachio, banana, apple, coconut flakes..🌈🦋💕 buckinis are such a yum substitute to granola, they’re just activated buckwheat granules⭐️ gf goodness
instead of buying ice cream, i make nice cream! by blending frozen bananas w/ minimal liquid, you get a creamy texture similar to ice cream without all the refined sugar and fat! it can be done in a blender or a food processor, all you need is some frozen 🍌 and some creativity!
bbq jackfruit tacos🌶!! i was so intimidated by jackfruit until i finally took a stab at it and realized how easy it is to make! topped with mango salsa and avocado.
directions: buy canned jackfruit (in brine, not syrup). shred it with your hands and rinse off the salty brine. sauté an onion w/ jalapeño and add the jackfruit with bbq sauce. simmer until the jackfruit is sticky and the edges are crispy.
1 mango, juice of 1 lime, 1/4 red onion, handful of cilantro/coriander.
top with avocado and extra cilantro!
easiest meal ever! rice noodles inspired by a philipino restaurant i visited.
ingredients: vermicelli rice noodles, veggie broth, carrot, purple cabbage, broccoli, coriander/cilantro, any veggies you like really..
start by sautéing the veggies with a bit of soy sauce and let steam until slightly soft. add the rice noodles and cover slightly over the top of the noodles with veggie broth and 1 tbsp soy sauce. lower heat, cover and allow the rice noodles to absorb the broth until the liquid is fully absorbed and the noodles are soft. top with fresh coriander/ cilantro and a squeeze of lime!
easy vegan dinner: thai curry with noodles! all you need is rice noodles, red curry paste, can of coconut milk, tofu and veggies! i added broccoli, zucchini and bell pepper.
start by frying the tofu with coconut oil and a tsp of curry powder. set aside. sauté the veggies with coconut oil and add the coconut milk, 2 tbsp curry paste, cover, lower heat and let cook for 10 mins. before serving, add the cooked noodles and stir through. serve with chopped cilantro/ coriander🎋
reducing waste and keeping beaches happy: bring your own snacks! this can be whole fruits, smoothies/soups/salads in glass jars with your own cutlery! for this day, i brought a whole kiwi, mango, passionfruit and coconut yogurt i had at home and cut them up at the beach with a knife i brought from home. I probably could’ve cut it at home looking back...😅 but the only waste i had from this beach day was compost that i threw into the green bin at home. if you love bringing watermelon or fruit to the beach, i suggest you buy it whole, cut it at home, bring it with you in a glass jar and you’ll be so thankful you did!
pesto pizza baby🌿⭐️🌿 truly one of my favorite creations. made with @naked.byron.foods vegan basil pesto, caramelized onions, cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, olives, kale and cashew cheez. adding kale to a pizza may seem contradictory to some, but if you chop it up small and add it at the last 4 mins in the oven, it only adds dimension to your pizza. if you make a pizza, i challenge you to add some greens to it, whether that be kale, spinach or fresh arugula, and tag me so i can drool over your creation!
chia for breakfast! start your day with fiber and tons of liquids for a happy belly🌈 first thing i do when i wake up is drink a tall glass of lemon water before anything else to start my metabolism for the day. ill drink most of my liquids for the day in the morning because i’m awful at remembering to drink enough water throughout the day. a tip to stay hydrated is to eat water rich foods like fruit and veggies in the morning in addition to drinking water!
mineral and phytonutrient dense meals🦋 instead of counting calories or counting carbs (as even veggies are considered carbs), i like to consider the nutritional value of my food. in an acai bowl, i have potassium from the 🍌, antioxidants from acai, vitamin c from passionfruit and so much more. i encourage you to look at your food as a source of an abundance of vitamins and minerals, which will in turn make you eat more of those colorful foods! plus you will only be more grateful for these vibrant fruits and how they got to your table🌿☺️
start every day with an abundance of fresh fruit and coconut yogurt🌵local fruit that came from rich, high vibrational soil tastes sooo much better. it’s incredible how succulent the flavors are from food that was grown in happy soil. i start my day with fruit because it contains phytonutrients that prevent my blood sugar from hitting too low as well as fiber to support my digestive system, which is what our bodies need in the morning. try squeezing lime on top of your papaya for a tropical treat⭐️
dessert for breakfast🦋except this dessert covers 70% of your daily recommended iron and 300% of omega 3s. in between chia pudding, layer mango purée (just blended mango) and top with a smoothie and berries of your choice☁️
never eat plain granola again🌿 add chia pudding, fruit, berries, nuts, seeds..anything to keep every meal new and interesting☁️i top mine with chia pudding, papaya, frozen raspberries, cinnamon and passionfruit
