Vanilla Protein Smoothie

This morning, after my workout and catching up with clients, I decided to go ahead and run a few errands. Usually, I’ll make a veggie omelette each morning BUT today I needed something quick to get out the door. My Vanilla Protein Smoothie was the perfect option. VANILLA PROTEIN SMOOTHIE Recipe: 1 cup frozen spinach (I get a bag at Costco and keep it in my freezer.) 1 banana 1 scoop vanilla protein powder from Traders Joe’s 1 tablespoon almond butter 3 ice cubes Blend and enjoy! Preferably on the beach and not in your car running errands. 🙂

Two Delicious Breakfast Bowls

It has been a rainy new year in Southern California!

ACAI BOWL Recipe: 1 Sambazon Acai Smoothie Pack 1 banana (half in smoothie, half as topping). 1/4 cup frozen blueberries (in smoothie). 1/4 cup Purely Elizabeth Original Granola 2 Strawberries Oatmeal Bowl Recipe: 1/4 cup quick oats 1 pack Wild Friends Chocolate + Coconut Peanut Butter 2 strawberries 1 banana 1/4 cup Purely Elizabeth Original Granola I hope this brightens up your Foguary! 😉 Let me know if you try either of the delicious and healthy options above.

This simple and healthy granola recipe has become a staple in the Landers home. It is perfect on yogurt, with fruit or in a acai bowl.

Almond Meal Cookies with Chocolate Chips and Coconut

Monday night we were craving something sweet and knew I had enough ingredients to whip up something delicious. These almond meal cookies with chocolate chips and coconut were the perfect treat. They have quickly become Luke’s favorite. They’re easy, delicious and a great motification to the classic chocolate chip cookie. With only one egg and coconut acting as the perfect sweetener these cookies will leave you energized instead of weighed down! Three things I loved about this recipe: It was simple, healthy and quick to prepare; not to mention it yielded some seriously amazing chocolate chip cookies that any eater – gluten free or not – would be pleased to pick up. *While the recipe below says it yields 20, we made larger cookies and ended up with about a dozen.
