QUICK SIMPLE FOODS
six quick healthy recipes that get me through my busy days
These are my go to recipes that make eating healthy doable for me! I do a version of these everyday. I’m so busy and if I didn’t have easy staples to go to I would likely forget to eat or not eat properly for my body. I hope these are helpful and enjoyable for you. I would also love to hear what you make that fuels you through your day!
#1.Young Coconut Shake
This is a go to breakfast and lunch staple for me. So easy and keeps me full for hours. The maca give me added energy and balance. You can add a little cold brew coffee if you want an extra punch. This recipe is about 1.5 servings but I enjoy the entire thing.
1 young coconut, water and flesh
1 teaspoon maca powder
pinch sea salt
Blend on high in your high speed blender
I don’t always drink caffeine, I try to cycle it (on one week, off the next) but when it’s an on week, I do bulletproof. I love butter and ghee for healthy fats, but if you don’t want the dairy you can sub in coconut butter or almond butter. I like this drink because it keeps me full and focused for up to five hours! It also makes the body think it’s doing and interment fast which is incredible for anti-aging and weight loss.
8 oz organic coffee or bulletproof coffee
2 tablespoon ghee or grass-fed organic butter
1 teaspoon MCT oil
7 drops omica stevia
pinch of salt
Blend it on high for 60 seconds! Must be blended to have the best effects, not stirred.
#3. Nori Wrap
This is a go to that has been a staple in my diet for almost 10 years now. I change it up a little but it’s pretty much the same everyday which I personally don’t mind! I eat about 2 wraps.
2 nori sheets
2 tablespoon almond butter
1 baked yam (I make yams every night for dinner)
1 cucumber, peeled
Cut up all the veggies roughly, no need to be pretty. Spread a bit of the almond butter on both wraps. Fill with all the veggies and fixings. Roll like sushi and then cut in half. I like mine dipped in raw tahini or coconut amino. So good!
#4. Everything Salad
I just take all the vegetables in the fridge and cut and sliced them up very roughly (no time for pretty!). I toss some pre washed organic salad mix into a bowl and top with all the veggies, some almond butter, any leftovers and sauerkraut. I love these salads to be huge because they are usually my first actual meal of the day. I love a simple dressing with tahini and honey.
1 tablespoon tahini
1 tablespoon evoo
1 tablespoon ACV
1 teaspoon honey
2 tablespoon water
Whip with a fork and pour on the salad
#5. Stuffed Yam
I make this just about every night. I use white rice because it’s low in toxins and low in anti-nutrients that keep digestion from functioning well. I also let it cool because that makes it a resistance starch (a beneficial starch that feeds healthy gut bacteria). I usually have a poached egg and some dandelion greens with this meal if it’s dinner… or I just eat the yam for lunch.
1 cooked yam
1/2 cup white organic rice
1 tablespoon ghee or coconut oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 /4 teaspoon sea salt
pinch black pepper
Take out the potato filling and leave the skin whole. Mashed up with all ingredients and then put back into the skin. Make sure to eat the skin too! It’s super good for ya.
#6. Raw Soup
This is another go to for me that I’ve been doing for almost 10 years! You can really use whatever veggies you have around, but this is my favorite combo.
1/2 cucumber, peeled
1 large handful of spinach
1 medium bell pepper, cored
1 small avocado
1 tablespoon of raw tahini
1 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons of Nama Shoyu
Blend it all together!
