Made my green monster pancakes again! Click here for the original recipe. But I only had half a banana today so instead, I did 2 tb of oats and ½ a banana! The pink ‘sauce’ is just strawberry yogurt. I blended some Fage Greek yogurt with some strawberries, raw honey, and a small splash of almond milk to get it blending. Layered it with dark chocolate peanut butter, the sauce, strawberries and topped it with some almonds and dark chocolate shavings! No syrup needed because of the raw honey in the sauce! :)

Monday’s lunch: a very colorful salad! Spinach with chicken breast, cherry tomatoes, tangerines, sunflower seeds, goat cheese and my homemade strawberry balsamic dressing! It was so delicious! Especially eating it in the backyard with the sunlight. 

For the dressing it’s just strawberries, EVOO, ground pepper, balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, a tiny bit of honey (unless your strawberries are super sweet) and salt (I used Mrs.Dash)! Blend it all together and you’re done! I keep mine refrigerated. This is good to make if you have strawberries turning too ripe. 

Mediterranean. Greek salad with no olives and onions bc I hate them lol so I guess it’s just a cucumber tomato & goat cheese salad. With EVOO & red wine vinegar as dressing. EVOO with balsamic or red wine vinegar and a pinch of salt and pepper is a healthier and yummier salad dressing option bc they basically contain 0 fats 0 calories 0 carbs 0 sodium etc but somehow still maintains a strong flavor!

Snack was dates stuffed with goat cheese and spiced pecans. Honestly not as yummy as using medjool dates but medjool is too expensive. Nonetheless SO GOOD!!! I have been obsessed w/ this combination past few weeks. SO BOMB. (best served at room temperature instead of really cold cheese)

Last night’s late night snack was a green monster smoothie!! Finally got to try kale!! I was pleasantly surprised to find actually how tasty it was! I heard kale was very bitter so I was expecting to be eating a nasty smoothie lol. Here is what I put in:

  • 1 large leaf of kale
  • small handful of spinach
  • few chunks of frozen bananas
  • 4 small cubes of cucumber
  • 1 slice of apple
  • little bit of almond milk for some liquid to give it a good mix
