Almond Joy Protein Smoothie

I have a new obsession.  It’s an Almond Joy Smoothie, and it was discovered last week in my VitaMix.

image

It started by trying Fitnessista’s Butterfinger Smoothie, and the next day manipulating some ingredients for my love of coconut. 

Almond Joy Smoothie La Recita
  • 1 scoop of vanilla or chocolate protein powder (I used Sun Warrior)
  • 1 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk (coconut milk would work too!)
  • 1 tbsp of almond butter
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp coconut extract
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 4 ice cubes
  • Blend and enjoy your milk shake nutritious smoothie!
Homemade Almond Milk!

So doing this whole #paleo30 thing has really made me evaluate all the ingredients I put in my body (as if I weren’t obsessed enough already). I’ve read mixed reviews on the ingredients and fillers in almond milk and decided shit I can make my own. So I did. And it’s delightful!

Homemade Almond Milk

image

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of raw organic almonds
  • 3 1/2 cups of water
  • 1 teaspoon of organic vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of organic almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon raw organic honey (optional)

image

Step 1: Soak almonds for at least 8 hours in water

image

Step 2: Drain your almonds and blend them with the water

Step 3: Pour the liquid through a cheese cloth, nut bag or coffee filter (If you use a coffee filter, you’ll likely need to strain the milk in a couple batches since the filter is not big enough to hold all the milk at once.)

image

Step 4: Re-blend with the fixins! Honey, cinnamon, vanilla and almond extract.

Step 5: Pour in a fancy mason like jar and enjoy for up to 5 days in the fridge! Probably makes about 3 cups total.

P.S. You will likely have some nutty mixture left over separate from the liquid (I did). Soooo I made some cookies with it… Just a dozen.

Sup(plements) yo!

Whilst I like to eats a lot of food for nutrients, I do enjoy me a supplement or two and TOMORROW Whole Paycheck Foods is hosting a 25% off supplement sale. Which makes it almost like any normal supplement you would buy. 

Here are a few of my favorite things (which are indeed affiliate links to amazon just FYI if you are not going to make it into Whole Foods). I highly suggest you check out the sale as you continue to stock your ingredients to throw in your caldron.

Sale is Friday August 15th my friend

Cod Liver Oil / Butter Blend (my favorite is NOT available at Whole Foods)

If you take one supplement and only one supplement the rest of your life, pay for this. Everyday. In Wubbas bottle and in my mouth goes Cod Liver Oil. Not for the faint of heart but not terrible. This is my favorite brand as I believe it is the most highly bioavailable and fermented to increase and preserve the natural vitamin content. Great source of Omegas and fat soluble vitamins.

This brand of cod liver oil is harvested naturally with no heat/bleaching/deodorizing/filtering providing a natural vitamin A and D powerhouse, and butter oil taken specifically from cows during the spring when the grass is most nutritious for the most ‘activator x’ which I believe is now known as vitamin k2. It provides a whole range of natural vitamins and fats in a food form, which is much more effective than the synthetic supplements made in labs. 

Tera’s Grass-fed Whey or Source Organic Whey (I don’t believe they carry the later at Whole Foods).

I love some grass-fed whey protein now and then if I am on the go and need a quick smoothie hit. Or a healthy dessert alternative. 

B-12 Vitamins  (Carried at Whole Foods, ask them what the source is)

If you do not get these from grass-fed beef, lamb, salmon or sardines (blegh) a good vitamin may help. Cough. Cough. That time of month, these babies help take the edge off and give me some good energy. Great overall mood and energy booster.

NRG Matrix  (carried at a few Whole Foods stores)

Yes I used to work for them. When I need a boost of energy, this is still my go to cold beverage. NRG Matrix is a powerful blend of 8 medicinal mushrooms with antioxidant and organic botanicals that give you energy, helps you focus, gives you an immune boost ANNDD helps you recover. HOLLER. Super Food Energy Drink.

Critical Care Matrix (not carried at Whole Foods)

Dude. This is a radical blend of mushrooms. I can say it now that I do not work for the company, if you know anyone who needs support with their immune system, dose them up on this mix. Whenever I feel like I may be getting sick, I load up on these shrooms. Read more

Gelatin (Not sold at Whole Foods)

This form gels and needs to be hydrated, this form you can just add to anything but will not gel.

Life changer. Amazing for bone, joint and gut health. ::READ HERE::

Garlic

Home slice say what? Yes garlic. This is a handy option to not ruin your breath but give your immune system and metabolism and handy boost. Great when you are sick and handy if you are looking to char a few extra calories now and again. Rumor has it garlic has amazing heart health benefits to it as well. Do your research nugget!

Minerals!  Flake form or drink form. (Not sure if Whole Foods has it!)

So amazing for your bath tub or for foot soaks. Most of us are low in magnesium and these lovelies help restore it. I add 1/4 of a cup to all of Wubba’s baths as well.

I also like to drink my magnesium as it seems to put me in a much better mood. Some say lack of magnesium can actually lead to depression. Lame. Drink up buttercup.

Last but not least. Probiotics

This is one of the best brands I have personally tried and I am not sure if they carry this brand at Whole Foods. Probiotics are great for gut health and your immune system in general. Hubs and I and Wubbas take these everyday.

Bio-Kult is a unique probiotic with a high concentration of 14 strains of beneficial bacteria. Bio-Kult is the recommended probiotic for those following the Gut and Psychology Syndrome Diet and was formulated by a team of doctors including Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. The human gut contains trillions of bacteria, comprising over 400 species. The majority are beneficial but some can adversely effect the body’s own defenses. You are exposed every day to hostile bacteria through food and drink. To counterbalance these invaders, you need to ensure a healthy level of “beneficial” bacteria. The healthy level of good bacteria in the gut can be reduced by factors such as poor diet, antibiotics, foreign travel, stress, aging, and infection. A convenient way of maintaining the healthy balance in the gut is to use a probiotic. Probiotics were first scientifically identified as being helpful by Dr. Metchnikoff, a Nobel Prize winner working at the Pasteur Institute in Paris in 1907. Bio-Kult, an advanced broad spectrum probiotic, was developed by a team of doctors, nutritionists, and scientists. Bio-Kult contains 14 strains of beneficial bacteria including Bacillus subtilis, a catalase-positive bacterium commonly found in soil. This bacteria is able to tolerate extreme environmental conditions. Bio-Kult also contains L. Acidophilus, L. Casei, L. Delbruekii.bulgaricus, L. Delbruekii.lactis, L. Helveticus, L. Plantarum, L. Rhamnosus, L. Salivarius, B. Breve, B. Bifidum, B. Infantis, B. Longum, and S. Thermophilus in cellulose base.

Surrender. Make Paleo Coconut Chicken

We are getting ready for a big game here Saturday.  Momma went to UCLA and daddy went to Stanford, and Wynston already prefers blue and gold. Gooo blue team.  Anyhooters in the sake of tailgating - or if you are with infant - bbq’ing at your house and tailgating from your couch, I thought I would share a delightfully healthy and delicious paleo coconut chicken recipe.

image

I literally could eat this chicken everyday. 

Paleo Coconut Chicken 

Ingredients

  • 1 package or about 1 pound of Trader Joe’s Organic Boneless Skinless Free Range Chicken Tenders (or you can cut up chicken breasts yourself) 
  • 1/2 cup of almond or coconut flour (I prefer almond)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of organic pasture raised heavy whipping cream (optional)
  • 1 Cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Seasonings - sea salt, pepper, cayenne, paprika and lemon pepper if you so choose (play around with seasonings)
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees 
  2. Rinse chicken
  3. Grease a cookie sheet with coconut oil
  4. Set aside three bowls - one for the flour, one for the coconut and one for the 2 eggs beat together 
  5. Dip chicken strip in the flour, then the egg mixture then the coconut and lay strip on cookie sheet (repeat until all are coated)
  6. Bake at 400 for about 12-15 minutes depending on your oven.  I like mine a little more well done.
  7. Mix a little ketchup with cayenne pepper and dip away!

Today I woke up, boobed the babe and sent him to cuddle with hubs so I could get on with T25 Day 4. Today was ab day, today was tough. Shaun T really does not mess around. 25 minutes he kicks my donk three ways sideways. I am LOVING this workout series and already feeling 600% better about my life, like I am doing something small but so good for my body and sanity everyday without apology.

I realize my last post may have seemed like I done lost it, but I haven’t, being a new mom, adjusting to my new role and body is just a process. A friend commented on that post that theme of her new life of being a mom is surrender.  How wonderful, appropriate and fitting is that?

Surrender.

So today I am trying just that, surrendering to the fact that I don’t have control of my day and I just have to do what I can and make the little man happy.  Seems to be going well so far.

I am off to surrender these toes and get a pedicure while Gramma watches the sleeping angel.

Thin Mint Coco Nut Buttery Fudge (Paleo, Vegan, Low Carb, Delightful)

This recipe was adapted and inspired by the lovely, wonderful and amazing Fitnessista. I just put a little more coconut edge and added more nut butter really oh and replaced coconut flour with almond flour.

This is one of the most delish delights I think I’ve made thus far. Makes a girl’s heart real real warm.  Hope you enjoy!

P.S. I know I hasn’t posted in a whillleeee, had a lot going on over here and it’s been a bit stressful and hectic. BUT, I am back in business at least before the baby gets here.  ; )

Thin Mint Nut Butter Fudge

image

Ingredients

  • 2 scoops of chocolate protein powder (I used grass fed whey)
  • 1 scoop of almond flour (used the same scoop from the protein powder)
  • 1/3 cup of coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup of nut butter of choice (I used almond butter)
  • 1/4 cup of coconut flakes (unsweetened)
  • 1 tb unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract

Mix all of this together!

image

image

image

image

image

image

Your consistency should be fairly moist and whipped up pretty well combined. Now pack this in a greased (optional I just think it comes out cleaner) storage system and put her in the freezer while you make the topping!

image

Topping 

  • Half of a dark chocolate bar (I used 70% Green and Black’s)
  • 1 tablespoon of nut butter 

Break the chocolate into pieces, add the nut butter in a microwavable bowl and melt it for like 40 seconds.

image

image

image

Pour your dark chocolate topping on top of your chilled fudge.

image

Lick the bowl (optional)

image

Place it all back in the fridge and let it set for at least 30 minutes.  I let mine sit overnight because it was night time anyhow and it was DELIGHTFUL in the morning!

alt + control + delete
the last legal vice

I use a Mac, so this command is not relevant anymore.  But sometimes I think we need a command that automatically forces us to quit a certain activity, refresh it, and start anew.  Meet my human form of “alt + control + delete”.

waking up to this smell is heaven

It’s not a massage, or a weekend getaway, it’s an espresso stove-top moka that I brought back with me when I moved home from Italy.  I know coffee is bad for you, this won’t help you de-stress, blah blah blah.  I don’t care.  It’s a piece of a place I gave my heart, and with every cup I’m reminded of la vita bella.

My best friend from Italia, Andrea, she introduced me to Carreras, I introduced her to the side braid.

Have no fear, I put a healthy twist into my espresso vice.  As some of you may know, coffee used to be my breakfast, but we broke up (for mornings that is), and I’ve moved on with protein.  So I’ve created a perfect way to wake up. Introducing the Iced Chocolate Coconut Milk hold the whip skinny non-latte extra Italian memories almond butter espresso protein shake.

venti doppio!  Mmm protein frappuccino de whitters

The name is a work in progress and I am open to ideas.  Basically, we need a name that encompasses the ingredients and the memories it provides me.  At the end of the day, I can’t move back to Italia, I made no money, barely enough for food and my Carrera obsession.  But I can dream about the friends I made, the wine I tasted, and the morning cappuccinos Giovanni served me with chocolate drawn foam hearts.  That my friends is worth waking up for.

la ricetta:
  • 2 Scoops Dark Chocolate Tera’s Whey Protein Powder
  • 1 Shot of Espresso (brewed on the stove makes it mo-bettah)
  • 1 tbsp of almond butter
  • 4 ounces or so of water (I prefer filtered because I am obviously a snob)
  • 1 teaspoon of cacao powder
  • 6 or so ice cubes depending on if you want a frappuccino or an iced latte version
  • 1 tbsp of coconut milk or creamer of choice

Throw it in a blender. Sip sip remember the good days.  P.S. Starbucks if you made a morning protein frappuccino that was actually healthy, you’d sell a lot.  Just sayin.

Blonde Beezy Protein Bars!

Cheers to the fricken weekend beezies!  What do you think of the new blog look?  YOU CAN FINALLY EFFING COMMENT ON POSTS SO PLEASE DOOOOO!  Let’s discuss this goodness…

image

#nomnomnomnom

If you follow me on Instagram (@whitbenj) it may already be apparent that I am obsessed with a few things, protein concoctions, sprinkles and Confetti Cupcake PopTarts. Which I should say now, I think Pop Tart should pay me for sending so many people down the aisles in search of those lovelies. And I never had ever eaten one… Until last night… But before we get there, here is a healthy protein bar recipe inspired by my best beezy’s birfday and Confetti Cupcake Pop Tarts!

image

                     My beezy with the six pack cooler I got her!

{This just in! You should know that I literally just pulled out a Quest Bar from my bag and sat on it in order to warm it up a bit before eating it… Act like it’s not brilliant and you’re not gonna try it…}

Blonde Beezy Bars!

Okay so the frosting ABSOLUTELY makes these bars, but I think if I tweak my recipe just a tad, these bad boys will be the bomb.com so here is said tweaked recipe.

Dry Ingredients

  • 6 scoops of Chocolate Protein Powder (I used It’s About Time Whey Chocolate Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 3 tbsp flax meal
  • 3 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar (could use stevia)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 6 tbsp egg whites
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup low fat organic greek yogurt (I always prefer low fat yogurt because it tends to have less sugar and less processed or unsweetened apple sauce)
  • 5 drops liquid stevia
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp almond

Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl, and the wet in another bowl, then mix all together and bake in a greased pyrex dish or baking pan at 350 for about 8-12 minutes depending on your oven! Just keep checking those nuggets.

Frosting (blend everything in a blender)

  • 8 oz Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup of coconut milk (organic straight from the can)
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • Add as many shakes of sprinkles as you like (the only non clean ingredient but OH so delicious)
  • **Optional to add liquid stevia if you want it real sweet but I think the banana does the trick

Pour the icing all over the cake and then put it in the freezer for 30-45 minutes to set.  If you are traveling somewhere to deliver the cake I’d say 45 minutes. Cut into 16 squares after you set the frosting. Store pan in the fridge!

OR

You could also just keep the icing in a bowl and add it as you eat the cake as it will get melty!

Ta - Daaa!!

I hope you enjoy!!!!
