I had no spinach or kale, so it isn't necessarily a green smoothie, but I added some hemp and flax seeds for extra fiber and some omega-3s. I used more pineapple, and added some kiwis for a more tropical flavor. It's pretty similar to my past kiwi-pineapple smoothie, but with some variation. It's always fun to play around, and I haven't really gone wrong with my recipes!
Here's what I used for 4 cups worth:
2c. chopped pineapple
2T flax seeds
1T hemp seeds
The result was a little more tart than my last one, since I only used one banana, but it was still sweet enough for my liking! It makes it feel a little lighter too, if that makes sense.
Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables (although if I think about it...they're ALL my favorites), but I usually just steam it so I wanted to try something different today. I found this roasted cauliflower recipe on skinnytaste.com and followed it pretty much to a tee, only adjusting to the amount of cauliflower that I had. I think mine turned out pretty well, but I think I like the texture when it's steamed a little more.
Now that I have my food out of the way, I can go back to editing my pictures for some more beauty related posts. But on the subject on food, I am seriously addicted to my homemade trail mix of walnuts, peanuts, craisins, raisins, almonds, and chocolate chips. Somebody needs to take it away from me..I can't stop eating it!
