I make smoothies every day and sometimes I make just a little too much so I decided to freeze some in Asher's star popsicle molds and my flower shaped silicone ice cube molds. They worked great and made for a nice protein packed frozen treat!
|Slightly messy, but fun little "Smoothie Bites" I feed to Asher!|
I didn't take pictures but I like to make easy to use baggies of smoothie blends with precut frozen fruit. I buy a bunch of our favorite organic frozen fruits and mix them up in freezer bags in tasty combinations like Mango-Raspberry-Blueberry or 3 Berry blend or this one which is DARK CHERRY-Raspberry-Blueberry! I always throw in a few slices of banana, a handful of spinach, scoop of whey, and a pinch of chia seeds for a quick breakfast full of nutrients!

|Yummy dark cherries!|
|Lots of antioxidants here!|
For a heartier breakfast, usually on the weekend, I've been making scrambled eggs and a small green smoothie. The eggs have bell peppers, onion, a few slices of avocado and some organic salsa. No cheese, dairy, or salt used here!
Love for the Hubs
for the Spinach and artichoke dip and the cashew cream
|Cashew Cream: 1 cup RAW cashews, soaked for 4 hours and 1 cup filtered water in a blender on high = a creamy cashew mixture that resembles a thick milk.|
The "Queso" turned out good too, but the flavor of the raw cashews started to turn into that of roasted cashews as I was heating it up on the stovetop. I liked the flavor more before and I wonder how you could heat it without 'roasting' the raw nuts... Here's the recipe!
These are a few of Geof's lunches that I've been packing for him.
|Detox drink, tea, smoothie (not pictured), oatmeal and banana for breakfast, a green salad and some veggie soup for lunch, and leftover artichoke dip and crackers for an afternoon snack.|
|Oatmeal, soy milk, fruit, and an egg for breakfast. Lunch is brown rice and baked chicken with a green salad and avocado, nutritional yeast dressing. Apple and almond butter for a snack. (forgot to include his tea and detox drink in this pic)|
|Detox drink, tea, oatmeal, banana, egg for breakfast. Green salad with grilled chicken salad and seed 'bread' for lunch. Celery and hummus or nuts and apricots for afternoon snack.|
