“This recipe is just genius! This is soo delicious and you won’t believe that this pie is actually good for you. One of the ingredients are chickpeas but I promise you’ll have absolutely no idea that they are in there. This pie had lots of fiber & protein from the chickpeas, is gluten free and has about 200 calories for 1 huge slice. Not to mention that it tastes like a delicious & rich thick cookie, YUM!”

“If there is one thing I absolutely love and can’t live without is must be green smoothies. I have one every day and it makes a huge difference in my overall health and energy level. All you need is a blender and some vegetables. Any blender will do but the better your blender, the better your smoothie will be. When you first start out making them you can use more fruit to get used to the taste but you don’t need much, don’t let the green color fool you! Also take a look at the wellness warrior website. It is by Jess, she is a super inspirational woman. A few years ago she was diagnosed with cancer and since she is living a very healthy lifestyle, her attitude towards life is very, very inspiring!”

Five Steps To the Perfect Green Smoothie Green Smoothie

If there was one piece of advice I could give anyone who wants to inject some healthy into their day, it would be to consume a daily green smoothie. Making this one simple change is the fastest, easiest, and, yes, tastiest way to get fresh, living, detoxifying, cleansing greens into your system without having to sit down to a bowl of what some may call “rabbit food”.

New to the Green Smoothie Revolution? Don’t worry, I’ve got your back. Just follow these five steps and you will be well on your way to being a lean, clean green machine!

1. Choose your leaves

Kale and/or  Silverbeet (or spinach or Swiss chard) and/or  Cos lettuce (or Romain or watercress)


2. Choose your base

   Purified water     and/or    Coconut Water    and/or          Apple juice

3. Choose some fruit

  Banana          or           Mango           or           Kiwi fruit           or          Pear

Tip: Try with frozen banana or mango.

4. Add some kick

Spirulina  and/or  Marine phytoplankton  and/or  Maca powder  and/or   Bee pollen

5. Blend away

Whiz together in your blender until smooth, and drink straight away.

Cupcake

 

Healthy & Easy Vegan Cupcakes for One

Single Lady Cupcake

(makes just one whole wheat- cupcake)

  • 3T flour (30g) (See directions for flour notes)
  • heaping 1/16th tsp salt
  • 1T applesauce, oil, pre-melted vegan butter, or a combo (Try coconut oil. I also like 13g sbl.)
  • 1T plus 1 tsp liquid (nondairy milk or water)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • Sweetener (I hate giving specific amounts, since tastebuds are so different. For normal tastebuds, 1 to 1 and 1/2 T of sugar should be about right. If you use liquid sweetener, cut back a tiny bit on the other liquid. You can also use stevia. I used 1/2 a packet, but—once again—I’d recommend at least triple that for normal tastes lol.)

There are many versions of this cupcake, like banan-bread, chocolate chip, strawberry shortcake, pina colada, lovely lemon & more, here is the link to all the other versions. Enjoy!
