Blackberry Coconut Smoothie

A great way to incorporate more antioxidant rich berries into your diet and the healing power of some greens to start your day.


1 cup spinach or kale (chop the kale finely if possible if you do not have a high powered blender for easier blending)

1 cup blackberries (I used blackberries because they were all I had on hand and I love the taste of blackberries but this would be good with strawberries or raspberries too)

½ cup almond or coconut milk

1 banana, sliced

½ teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon chia seeds


Blend and love.

Roasted Cauliflower

These thick cauliflower steaks are fabulous next to a green salad, and have enough flavor that you won’t even miss the meat. If you want to make this a vegan meal, you can add nutritional yeast on top or you can use cashew cheddar.


1 head of cauliflower, cleaned, and sliced into thick steaks (about one to one and a half inches, in one head you can probably get 4-5 slices depending on thickness and ease of cutting)

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

1/4 cup cheese of choice (I used parmesan)

Olive oil, for greasing and for spreading on cauliflower steaks, about 2 tablespoons

Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a shallow baking dish or parchment paper, place cut cauliflower steaks. Top with olive oil. Top with cheese and panko bread crumbs. Roast for 15-20 minutes.  Top as desired with more cheese, salt and pepper.  Service with a fresh green salad.

This is a simple, perfect recipe that really feels like winter.

Green Superfood Smoothie

A go to combination of mine. The pineapple adds all the sweetness you need and you will have boundless energy after blending. I am a self professed coffee addict, there is nothing like coffee that gets my gears running after a night of restless sleep, but this green smoothie competes with how much it wakes me up.


2 cups spinach, baby leaves, or 1 cup frozen spinach, lightly thawed

2 tablespoons of chia gel (chia seeds soaked in water or coconut water for several hours, good to have on hand in the fridge, and lasts a week!)

3 pineapple rings, or 1 cup pineapple chunks

1/2 cup blueberries, frozen or fresh

1 teaspoon spirulina

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

2 tablespoons goji berries


Blend well and enjoy!
