Mighty Greens With A Kiwi Berry Kabob

  My love affair with all things Kabob-ed meets a Smoothie Bowl.  I figured "Why Not"!  These little Kiwi Berries were perfectly ripe when I got home from work tonight so I thought I need to do something with these now.  Here was my dinner.  When you are at the store try to find something a little different and add it to your meal.  It makes dinner much more fun.  Enjoy!

 Ingredients:

5 Kiwi Berries
1 cup pineapple
1 cup fennel root
3 parsley roots, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons fresh wheatgrass
1 scoop of Amazing Grass Brand Wheat Grass
1/4 pineapple juice
1 pear
1/2 cup water

Method:

Blend all together in Vita-mix and serve at once.  I decorated with Chia seeds, mango leaf, Barlean's Swirl and a Kiwi Berry Kabob!

Pack~N~Go Lunch

The key to staying on track is being prepared.  I've made a bunch of meals for the week and have them loaded in the refrigerator and ready to go.  Good thing I have more energy than I know what to do with.  This is my favorite because it's my family's Garlic Salad recipe except for it's packed and ready to go.  The recipe can be found under Salad's (Garlic Salad).  Hope you are all set for the week. XOXO Tiffany.
The key is keeping the dressing separate, then you just pour on top and you are ready to go!
 Recipe:

Garlic Salad Dressing found on this blog!  Keep separate until ready to eat.  I put a small container of the dressing inside the jar with the salad.  Take it out and pour over top...enjoy!
See small container, then I place it inside the jar!  VOILA!
 

Amazing Romances Sauteed Vegetables

This sauteed vegetable dish is appropriately named because of the cool little vegetable I found and used in it.  The vegetable is called, Romances Cauliflower,  it's basically a mix or hybrid of two cruciferous vegetables; broccoli and cauliflower.  This hybrid vegetable dates back to the sixteenth century and is very aesthetically pleasing to the eye.  It also holds up well when sauteed and has a slight sweet taste.  In this dish I also used parsley root, kale stems and dark purple onion which really was a wonderful combination of flavors.  Then I used one of the kids favorite vegan/gluten free Indian Simmer Sauce which added a warm tropical coconut and tamarind flavor on such a COLD night. 
If you can't make this dish exactly you should at least try the sauces I have pictured at the bottom of this post.  They truly make dinner a breeze.  
The Romances Cauliflower adds so much texture to the plate...can you see them?
 Ingredients:

1 head of Romances Cauliflower, stem removed
4 parsley roots, peeled and cut into chunks
1/2 purple onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 head of broccoli, stem removed
1/2 cup kale stems, chopped
1/4 cup Olive oil
1/2 jar of Goan Coconut Indian Simmer Sauce, pictured below
1/2 cup water

Method:

Start by sauteing onion, broccoli, red pepper, parsley root in olive oil, add the remaining vegetables and saute until almost done.  Then add the Indian Simmer Sauce and water and continue until vegetables are cooked to your liking.  Serve at once!  This fed 3 of us, so you might just add more vegetables if you have four people. Enjoy!

Here is the cool little Romances Cauliflower
I used the Goan Coconut Sauce, but these two are my favorite!

The Parsley Root
ENJOY!
  

Chocolate Mint Smoothie Bowl

  Yesterday before the snow storm hit I went to the store to get supplies for the week.  They had just  gotten a shipment of fresh herbs.  One of the containers stood out to me so I picked it up and put it in my cart.  Mind you I had no idea what I was going to do with a Chocolate mint plant during a snow storm, but I felt the need to have it.  This morning I got up and decided to make a smoothie bowl using some of the chocolate mint plant.  Here is the recipe.  Did I mention that I LOVE CHOCOLATE:)   

Ingredients:

1 handful of chocolate mint greens
1 handful of kale
1 tablespoons of Barlean's swirl Omega oil (Chocolate mint flavor)
1 frozen banana
1 scoop of Amazing Grasses Brand Wheatgrass
1 teaspoon Spirulina
1 cup ice cubes

Method:

Blend on high in a Vita-mix and serve!  Decorate how you wish.  I used Dark Chocolate chunks, bananas and chocolate mint leaves.
