If you are anything like me, you have thrown caution to the wind and eaten just about anything you please for at least the past week. After a foodie binge I always throw myself into “clean eating” for a spell. This morning, I woke up and felt the time had come to give back to this poor abused body. Lots of fruit and vegetables, with a long walk thrown in for good measure.
Ginger Fruit Smoothie
- one whole grapefruit, peeled
- one whole apple, cored
- frozen strawberries, 2 cups
- fresh ginger, 1 inch
Blend these all together and enjoy!!
- Olive oil, 1 Tbsp
- green pepper, 1 whole chopped
- onion, 1 whole chopped
- bunch broccoli, cut up
- vegetable broth, 32 oz container
Heat the olive oil, then add the pepper and onion. Cook until soft. Add the broccoli and the broth. Bring to a boil, then lower to simmer. When the broccoli is soft, whirl it up it a blender! You may season any way you like. Today I opted for salt, pepper and a pinch of poultry seasoning for each serving. (no picture of this because it just looks green…)
After my walk, I came home and put this delicious, warm salad together for dinner.
Warm Brussels Sprouts and Arugula Salad
- brussels sprouts, sliced
- coconut oil, to prevent sticking
- pecans, toasted and chopped
- avocado, cubed
- lemon juice and olive oil
Heat the coconut oil in the pan and add the brussels sprouts. Use a high heat so that the sprouts brown. While those are cooking, toast the pecans. Put the arugula in a bowl and drizzle olive oil and fresh lemon juice over it. Mix thoroughly to coat the arugula with the dressing. Next, layer the ingredients: arugula, brussels sprouts, avocado and top with pecans! Simple and delicious!
