Happy Monday Everyone! Hope you’ve had a weekend of fun and relaxation! I spent my weekend at an amazing Breast Cancer seminar (will be sharing all kinds of information shortly) and as incredible as it was, I was sitting all weekend long, 20 hours long!! I’m dying to hit up some hot yoga and get my body moving! But….part of our program was to design meal plans for cancer prevention, and here are two of the simple and healthy recipes that I shared on the weekend. Hope you enjoy them!
Vanilla Chia Breakfast (or anytime) Pudding
This is a great way to start your day as it contains a heart healthy dose of omega 3’s, fiber, plant based protein, antioxidants and the perfect amount of sweetness. This ‘pudding’ will keep you full until lunch time and the protein and fiber work really well to balance blood sugar.
3 tbsp chia seed
1 tbsp flax seed
1 tbsp flax seed oil
1-2 cups almond milk, warmed
1 scoop sun warrior protein- http://bit.ly/9FEz6s
1/2 cup wild blueberries
1 tbsp raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 tsp organic vanilla extract or fresh vanilla pod
1 tsp cinnamon
Mix all ingredients (except flax seed oil) together and pour warmed almond milk on top. Stir well. Drizzle flax oil on top.
Curried Cashew Cauliflower
Oh Curry!! The perfect blend of aromatic spices and herbs that are full of antioxidants, not to mention the powerhouse, immune boosting, anti inflammatory, cancer preventative- Turmeric! I love the color turmeric adds to dishes (which comes from curcumin). Also, you get an incredible dose of mood boosting, stress reducing Tryptophan from cashews! Yay for good moods!
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
1/2 cup organic cashew butter
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp curry powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup roughly chopped raw cashews
Preheat broiler to 400. The rack should be in the top portion of the oven, just a few inches from the heat. Whisk together cashew butter, curry powder, olive oil and sea salt. Toss the cauliflower and cashews in the curry mixture. Spread onto a baking pan in a single layer. Broil for about 8-10 minutes, until just tender. Serve immediately!
Hope you enjoy these delicious Meatless Monday recipes!
Health & Abundance,
