Easily one of my favorites. Just mix as much kale as possible with 2 cups of seedless grapes (I used red, but really, it’s up to you!), 1/2 banana, and 2 cups of almond milk. Very milk shake-like, sweet and full in taste, just delicious!
Tonight I feast on iron, beta-carotene, Niacin, Vitamins A, B5, B6, B9, C, E, K, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, lycopene–a phytochemical (and a carotenoid pigment), and essential nutrient, and an antioxidant (just like the also available through peppers to me tonight p-coumaric acid), plant fats, and of course fiber and carbohydrates. Fantastic anti-carcinogenic properties, and a perfect recovery meal after running, weight lifting, and a morning hike.
1 green bell pepper
1/3 cup red onion, chopped
1 1/5 tbsp of garlic, minced
3 cups of kale
3 cups of spinach
1 large tomato
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Once again: nothing to it–chop up the veggies, place them in a pan with a tiny bit of olive oil, and let them simmer for 15-20 minutes. Such a flavorful and wholesomely nutritious dinner. Enjoy!
Beautiful–waking up to a cool, sunny, breezy morning, perfect for the upcoming 10K. Slowly upping energy levels with a cup of coffee and a glass of green goodness.
4-5 cups of spinach, 1 carrot, almond milk, cocoa, and flaxseed for iron, fiber, protein, and vitamins.
A strong run is in my near future!
How about waking up with a raw, vegan vitamin drink, going for a lovely 10K run in the city, and coming back to a recovery feast of protein, iron, vitamins, carbs, and fiber, all of it both delicious and beautiful?
For the recovery drink, I used 4-5 cups of spinach, 1/5th of a pineapple, 2 spoons of cocoa powder, 2 cups of almond milk.
I made the hummus with spanish olives, garlic, and roasted red peppers, with a hint of lime juice.
Later tonight: some sprints and the mandatory weights for faster legs and stronger bones and muscles. I needed that!
A while ago I blogged on what I eat on an average day. I am often told I consume incredible amounts, quite a lot for a person my size. Well, this
gives an answer more eloquently than I ever will. Can we all agree that it’s smart to be vegan :)?
Well I simply can’t help but post this wonderful summary of the reasons to avoid the numerous sugary, artificially sweetened, not to mention colored, substitutes to the best, healthiest source of hydration: water. Remember how lucky we are to have access to it, and be aware of the detriments to your appetite and health–physical and mental, every time you feel tempted to grab a soda or a sports drink.
