Banana “Nice Cream”

Banana “Nice Cream”

I can eat this anytime of day! Guilt free! It is my favorite “dessert for breakfast”
2 to 4 (to 6 if you wanna get crazy ūüėú) ripe frozen sliced bananas
That’s it!! Blend in a high speed blender and enjoy this guilt free dessert anytime of day meal!

But here’s some fun things to jazz it up!

  • Add 1/2 cup of any frozen or fresh fruit! Blackberries or Dragonfruit are my favorite to add. Not even for the taste just the beautiful. Silly I know.
  • Add a spoonful of nut butter, cocoa powder, vanilla extract or maple syrup to change the flavor!
  • Top with homemade oil free granola, steel cut oats, hemp seeds, chia seeds, unsweetened coconut flakes, vegan dark chocolate, seeds, nuts! Whatever you want!

Chickpea Scramble

I’m not always in the mood to cook breakfast, but when I do this is so delicious and easy to make! It’s also a great “breakfast for dinner” type of meal!

Chickpea Scramble
-1 can of chickpeas
-1/2 red pepper, diced
-1/2 green pepper, diced
-1/2 small red onion, chopped
1 garlic clove of garlic, minced
1 cup of chopped mushrooms
1 cup of baby spinach
1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes cut in half
1/4 cup of nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp of turmeric
1/2 tsp of cumin
1/2 tsp of smoked paprika
1/2 tsp of sea salt
1/4 tsp of cayenne (omit if you don’t like spicy food.)

Pulse chickpeas in food processor until mixture looks like scrambled eggs. Add in spices and pulse a couple times so it’s evenly dispersed. Heat non stick pan and add chickpea mixture and add all vegetables (except spinach and cherry tomatoes) cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. (If you don’t have a non stick pan or it is sticking to the pan for some reason add 1 tbsp of water or veggie broth at a time.)¬† then add cherry tomatoes and spinach until wilted. Serve hot with toast or oil free home fries. Or make a breakfast sandwich with this delicious mix!

Happy New Month!

Hello August | via Tumblr on We Heart It.. Summer will soon end and once gain fall comes calling with it's crisp air and burnished leaves of gold.  TG:

Happy Monday everyone.  Today not only ushers in a new week, but a new month.  There is something magical about new beginnings.  A chance to start over, a time to make goals.  January 1st everyone is so set about what the new year will bring them.  I am not that excited about new years, I prefer to look at new weeks!  Making small, manageable goals ladders up to something phenomenal in one year.  Think about it.  If you made a point to make a small change every Monday- imagine what 52 Mondays of change look like!
Last week I was so happy I hit every one of my workout goals. ¬†Sometimes it isn’t always possible and I see there are obstacles already popping up this week. ¬†Preparation is key to success.
Back to goal setting for the week and month ahead.  Sit down with yourself and come up with 4 things you want to focus on this month.  Then actually write them down!  Pick one a week to really focus on, then the next week try to do 2, then 3, then 4.   For example, they may be things like:
– Drink 1/2 my weight in water every day (this one is my downfall)
– Log my food this week
– Bring my lunch instead of buying it
– Eat breakfast every day
– Eat fruits and vegetables every day
-Try a new recipe/new food this week
– Exercise 2,3,5,7 x this week (you choose!)
– Incorporate strength training into my week (especially if you favor cardio)
– Incorporate cardio into my week (especially if you favor lifting)
– Incorporate stretching into my week
– Give a compliment to a stranger every day this week
– Do something nice to someone without being asked (or thanked or expecting something in return)
