Strawberry Moringa Mint Smoothie

Strawberry Moringa Mint Smoothie

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2

This low sugar, keto (high-fat) smoothie is my go to in summer. When I see strawberries at the market I will freeze half for my on the go lunch or snack (depending on my workout). Because of the healthy fats from the coconut, MCT oil and chia seeds, this smoothie keeps you full and satisfied. Cauliflower is my secret to a creamy consistency without the high sugar and carb from the traditional banana used in most smoothie recipes. Try adding a scoop of collagen or protein to up the protein as well.

Yerba Mate Finger Lime Cocktail

Yerba Mate Finger Lime Cocktail

This is more than a superfood cocktail, it has native roots that were used medicinally and for food benefits. Since I have been traveling in Australia, going to farmers markets and trying new foods, I stumbled across these guys!  From Kangaroo (all of it is wild and grass fed) to amazing fruits and now this, the Finger Lime.

Superfood "Chili"

I am so excited to share this hearty recipe with you because it turned out amazing. We ended up eating the leftovers for dinner the next day and now looking back I should have poached an egg on top! This recipe is very nutrient filled, with robust flavors it is very satisfying for those cold winter days, I can't wait to make it on my next snow trip! I also made GF cornbread, GMO free of course, with lots of butter, recipe is still in the works, a little dry. 

Takes about 45 minutes total

Serves 6

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 strips bacon

  • 1/2 white onion

  • 1 lb grass-fed ground beef

  • 1 small zucchini, cubes

  • 8-10 crimini mushrooms

  • 1 jalepeno, thinly chopped

  • 1 large can organic stewed tomatoes

  • 2 cups bone broth

  • 1 can organic white Tuscan beans

  • 1 tsp paprika

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 1 tsp chili powder

  • Raw cheddar cheese (shredded to top)

  • Chives, cilantro or micrograms to top

METHOD:

Cook bacon in the pot you will make your soup in. Cook bacon until crispy, remove to a plate. In oil from bacon, sauté onions until translucent 2-3 minutes. Add ground beef and spices and cook until browned. Add mushrooms, zucchini, tomatoes,  jalapeños, broth, and cook for about 20-25 minutes at med- low temperature.

Add beans (I do not like to cook precooked beans too long or they get mushy) and then if you are using superfood see note below.

**Add Four Sigmatic mushroom powder about 5 minutes before serving, make sure heat remains at low temperature so you do not cook out the nutrients! USE CODE TVW2017 for a discount.

Top with greens, cheese, a dollop of Greek yogurt or nothing at all.
