Meal Ideas 6/19-6/25

This week I’m eating less. I’m having a shake for breakfast and dinner at 4-5pm.

Breakfast Shake
-half frozen banana (Buy Wednesdays at Food City 3lbs/99¢)
-3 strawberries
-Small handful of blueberries
-1 large organic carrot (I buy the 2lb or 5lb bag from Sprouts)
-1/4 teaspoon of organic cinammon (Costco $2.99 10.7 oz)
-1/4 teaspoon of tumeric powder (Costco) or 1/2 small fresh piece (Sprouts)
-1/4 teaspoon ginger powder (Costco) or small fresh piece (Sprouts)
-1 tablespoon of Maca root (Sprouts)
-1 tablespoon of organic chia seeds (Costco)
-1-2 pieces of lacinto kale (I take off the thick part of the stem)
-Water to cover 1/2-3/4 of the ingredients

Put all the ingredients (kale last, it helps keep the seeds down) in the blender til smooth. Put into large class and stir in 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. I have some crackers with it but this week I’m having it with a couple hard boiled eggs with pink Himalayan salt and black pepper. Black pepper helps with your body’s absorption of tumeric.

Protein: Chicken breast, drumsticks, thighs, roast
-One splurge (Best Recipe!!): Buttermilk fried chicken tenders
Marinade for chicken breast: I may put the drums and thighs in this too

Sides: kale caesar, cauliflower, roasted tomato, garlic bread, avocado
Greek yogurt caesar dressing: I get organic greek yogurt from costco, and I use lacinto kale instead of lettuce

-apples, strawberries, cherries, watermelon
