My Daily Smoothie Recipe

This is my breakfast that I have almost every day. I like to change up the ingredients to keep it interesting, but I am sharing the base recipe below. What is important to me is for the shake to be nutrient dense and also calorie dense, so it keeps me full for a long time and fuels my workouts (or replenishes my body post workout). I make sure to include fiber, fat, protein, greens, and carbs!

Recipe:
✨1 cup water or unsweetened almond milk (liquid)
✨1 scoop protein powder (usually @julianbakery chocolate beef protein)
✨1/2 avocado or 1-2 T nut butter (fat)
✨2 cups power greens (greens)
✨1 scoop @vitalproteins (more protein/collagen)
✨1 T flax or chia seeds (fiber)
✨1/2 banana or blueberries (if you are keto, remove the carbs)
✨1 t spirulina or maca (optional superfood)
✨Ice cubes (if you like it thick)

-Blend all of the ingredients together until well mixed then add your favorite toppings.
-Topping ideas- gf or grain-free granola, cacao nibs, coconut flakes, nuts or seeds, almond or coconut butter, fruit, etc! The sky is the limit for toppings.

Some people may scoff at the idea of drinking your breakfast or having protein powder instead of whole foods but I have found that this works the best for me and many of my clients. Shakes are easy to make and you can take them on the go if you have a busy schedule. I make sure to include plenty of whole foods and proteins throughout the rest of the day. When I was knee-deep in sibo symptoms, it was the only meal that I didn’t experience digestive distress (more about sibo later). In addition to that, it keeps my blood sugar stable and I have tons of energy!

Farmer’s Hash

After popular request for this recipe, here it is! The perfect meal for the morning after Oktoberfest in Leavenworth ? It is pretty easy to make but it does require a lot of chopping so if you’re like me, you’ll recruit your significant other as a sous chef. Feel free to choose your favorite seasonal produce and mix it up!

Listed below is what I used:
Onions, bell peppers, parsnips, carrots, baby gold potatoes, leeks, zucchini, yellow squash, kale. Then I also heated up organic chicken sausage and corned beef and served them on the side. Lastly, we cooked up some over easy eggs to top off the hash! This breakfast is perfect for big groups because it makes tons of food and people can make their hash however they like- vegetarian or add their favorite meat!

How I did it:
Chopped up the carrots, parsnips, onions, peppers, and potatoes and sautéed them in an extra large pan with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Once they were almost cooked I added the chopped zucchini and the yellow squash to the mix and cooked for about five minutes. Next step was to add the kale for another five minutes. While the veggies were cooking I heated up the chopped up corned beef and chicken sausage. Then we fried the eggs! We served everything buffet style. It’s been a huge hit the past couple weekends and there’s usually leftovers for food prep for the week ? Save this one for later use! Happy Sunday y’all!
