Mango Strawberry Smoothie Bowl


I was thinking of adding in a fun food portion to the weekly blog posts. Recipe Wednesdays! Where I share small recipes I've been trying, with you. 
This week I'm sharing a delicious smoothie bowl recipe that taste amazing. love a good smoothie bowl. I can add crunch or salty toppings and still enjoy a smoothie. 
BASE:
  • Frozen Mangos
  • Frozen Strawberries
  • Plain Greek Yogurt | I like plain yogurt so that I can sweeten my smoothie with a natural sweetener like maple syrup or honey 
  • Water | I use water because it's less fat than using a sugary juice or milk. It still taste amazing using water. TRUST ME! 
SWEETENER:
  • Maple Syrup | This is a good alternative for a natural sweetener. It doesn't have those added sugars and It also has great health benefits from Antioxidants to helps protect skin health.
  • Cinnamon | Cinnamon has so many health benefits from anti-inflammatory properties to may help lower cancer risks. Look up more benefits of cinnamon. And it adds a great taste 
Blend Together Your Base And Sweetener And Add Your Toppings!
TOPPINGS:
  • Fresh Raspberries
  • Sunflower Seeds | Sunflower seeds are one of my favorite snacks. I love the crunch and the salty flavor it adds. 
  • Cinnamon 
  • Bananas Would also taste amazing with this

What I'm Snacking On?





Hey!
I'm such a snack lover! If a see a good snack I have to try it. As a child I enjoyed snack time and as an adult I still do. I've gathered a few of my favorite snacks to munch on, that are a little more healthier than pringles or lays. And these are AMAZINGLY Good!!



Sunflower Seeds
I have liked these ever since I was a child. Especially the lightly salted pack, I'm not of fan of to much salt. Sunflower seeds are perfect if you don't eat nuts or if you like that crunchy, salty taste. I get the ones without the shell because it just takes to long for me to open them haha.


Raisins
 I enjoy a nice cup of raisins every now and then. They satisfy my sweet tooth and they are perfect mixed in trail mix. A much healthier option than a candy bar you see in the store.


Hummus Chips
My mother actually bought this and told me about them, ever since then I've been obsessed. They are a very light crisp chip that is packed with so much flavor. They really are delicious and can be addicting.


Pirate Booty
Don't be turned off by the name. If you like cheesy popcorn, you'll definitely love Pirate Booty. While I was teaching, many of my students would come to school with pirate booty for lunch and one day I bought my own bag and fell in love. P.S They do get a little messy.

Quick Lunch Idea!! (Black Pepper Turkey Melt)


I know a lot of times we want a quick and easy lunch so this is literally my go to lunch when I'm in a hurry. Whenever I go to the store I make sure I pick up these simple essentials for a great lunch through out the week. 

List of these Simple Products:

  • Hoagie Style Bread 
  • Black Pepper Turkey
  • Colby Jack Cheese

Since this is a really quick and easy recipe or (sandwich) there's not much to it.
just layer however much meet and cheese you like (on separate pieces of bread)
** but make sure you put cheese on top of the turkey also, if you would like (forgot to mention that)**



Pop the bread in the oven on broil until the sandwich is lightly toasted then put it all together and ENJOY!
See told you, very simple and quick. I just paired my sandwich with some cheesy ruffles!




Until Next Time XOXO<3

Easy Guacamole with Cilantro


Well Hello there, it feels like its been awhile but I'm back with another recipe post. Yay! This past week I have been craving and I mean CRAVING! Guacamole! I was totally on a health kick and fell off completely, but with the holiday season coming up that might be a challenge. I decided to make some healthy guacamole with blue corn tortilla chips (which taste AMAZING might I say) but I wanted to play around with it so I added some cilantro. Now usually when I make guacamole I just add avocado and tomato but I was feeling good . lol :) The only thing I forgot is the lemon...because I didn't have any:( but its okay, if you like lemon just add the juice, it also helps so the avocado doesn't turn brown so quickly. Enough chit chat lets get started on this little recipe. 

 So here are my delicious ingredients 
CILANTRO, 2 SMALL TOMATOES AND 2 RIPE AVOCADOS 
** you will know the avocados are ripe when they are slightly soft and Dark Brown, NOT GREEN

I start by doing the usual mashing avocados with a fork ,without the seed of course:)



 Now for the chopped tomatoes and chopped cilantro (you only need a few pieces of cilantro)

 last but not least adding some garlic powder, onion powder and sea salt





 Hope you guys enjoyed this Recipe



Until Next Time XOXO<3
