1. I made a delicious and mostly clean breakfast for Chaz and I! It was filling because it was 3 kinds of meat! I woke up with the idea of putting saffron in the pancake mix to give them a tasty mix-up. Since I’m gluten-free, I used Bob’s Red Mill old-fashioned gluten-free oats.

    I combined cooked ground turkey, some black beans and eggs. I whipped them together with some cayenne and cumin. I cooked some chicken sausage and combined all of it!:)

    For the pancakes, I used:
    -1 3/4 cup almondmilk
    -1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
    -1 large egg
    -1 1/2 tsp baking powder
    -3/4 tsp baking soda
    -2 tbsp coconut sugar
    -tiny pinch of saffron
    -pinch of salt

    I combined all of these in my Vitamix until the oats were mostly broken up and the batter was smooth.

    I served them simply with real organic maple syrup:)

    Happy Easter! God bless!

  2. Latin-American style chicken and baked plantains

I’ve always wanted to cook with plantains, so I baked them instead of the more-often fried way to prepare them. This way, it’s better for your heart and has an awesome taste! This was quite simple, delicious and fun! Adding a little twist in regular chicken and rice is perfect for the warm weather. The subtle sweet taste if the plantains goes perfect with the kick of spice that the chicken and rice provide. 

I cooked chicken breast in chili powder, garlic powder, cayenne, onion powder and cumin. I cooked some brown rice and mixed in the seasoning above with that too. This pairs well with the sweet plantains! 

-Preheat oven to 450. 
-Peel carefully and slice ripe plantains into slices, about 1/2 of an inch thick.
-Lay flat on a baking pan lined with coconut oil. Sprinkle a little bit of cayenne and ginger on top
-Bake, turning occasionally for 10-15 minutes or until they are very tender

Serve the three ingredients together and enjoy! Try new things and take care of your body!

  4. Easter inspired pink lemonade coconut water “slushie”

For this one, I used the new lemonade coconut water flavor to add to the lemon taste of this mock slushie. This is a great twist on a regular strawberry smoothie because of the bittersweet surprise to it. It’s also more fruity and less of a creamy milkshake consistency than most of my smoothies. It was delicious, tart, sweet and yet refreshing. Not to mention the Vitamin C boost from the lemon.


Only 3 simple ingredients:
-6 frozen strawberries 
-1 cup lemonade Vita Coco coconut water
-1 tsp lemon juice 

I blended it in my Vitamix and ended up with a beautiful hydrating smoothie to brighten my day. Experiment with flavors, hydrate and enjoy! God bless!

  6. Easter inspired colorful coconut water smoothie

This is another great one made with orange coconut water. It’s got lots of potassium and goes great with the pineapple, coconut and vanilla for a pineapple creamsicle flavor. It comes out to be a beautiful faint yellow color. 

-1/3 frozen banana
-3/4 cup frozen pineapple
-1 cup orange coconut water
-1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein
-1 drop vanilla extract
-a sprinkle of coconut shreds to sprinkle on top

These ingredients were simple and easy. I used to Vitamix to make it into a really soft texture. Enjoy and God Bless!:)

  7. Clean tropical fried rice!

    Even though the ingredients were a splurge, I just had to get them for this recipe. This is an awesome spin on fried rice because of the tropical touch to it. It’s a perfect dinner for such a beautiful and warm Sunday afternoon like this one.

    -deveined and peeled shrimp
    -fresh pineapple chunks
    -red onion, sliced
    -yellow bell pepper, sliced
    -green bell pepper, sliced
    -3 beaten eggs
    -Tamari soy sauce (I used this one because it’s gluten free!)
    -Brown rice
    -cayenne to sprinkle on top

    Cook the shrimp until they turn pink, you don’t want to overcook them, as they will be rubbery. Remove them from the pan and roast the pineapple in the pan for a little bit just to get them warm. Take the pineapple out and roast the other vegetables until they are starting to get limp. Add the eggs and scramble them into little pieces mixed in with the vegetables.

    Add the cooked brown rice, shrimp and pineapple. Toss everything on the pan with a little soy sauce and serve with a sprinkle of cayenne on top!

    Delicious! Enjoy the warm weather and eat clean!:)

  9. Lazy maple flax rice pudding

There’s nothing I love more in the morning than something cold and mild like chilled rice pudding. I had some leftover brown rice, so I whipped all of this together and let sit in the fridge for the night. By morning, I’ll have some great complex carbs and omegas in my system to start the day! 

This is 2 servings at least:
-1 cup of fully cooked brown rice
-3/4 cup unsweetened Silk almondmilk
-1 tsp organic maple syrup (must be REAL maple syrup, which includes nutrients with health benefits. Wouldn’t expect that from maple syrup would ya?) 
-1 drop vanilla extract
-1 tbsp milled flax seeds
-1/4 tsp xanthan gum 
-a dash of cinnamon and a drizzle of maple syrup on top if you desire

Mix everything together with a milk frother BEFORE you add it to the rice, then put in the fridge. It really will only take about 10 minutes to firm up a little if you want it right away.

Make use of your leftovers and experiment! God Bless:)

  10. Colorful, spring time, hydration, need I say more? 

This beautiful smoothie only took 3 ingredients:
1 1/2 cup orange (any flavor will do) coconut water
2 organic sliced and frozen beets
1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder

I used my Vitamix to blend these all together to make this. What a great way to complement the beautiful weather.

  11. Spring awakening coconut water green smoothie!

    I’m super excited to start making some springtime smoothies with coconut water. Since their so light in flavor, they can go in virtually any fruit smoothie and even add some light and sweet taste. There’ll be many Easter colored smoothies to come, with other fruits and flavors. Here’s this morning’s concoction. It has so lots of vitamins, potassium, fiber and good fats to fuel my brain and my body:

    1 cup any flavor coconut water
    1 small scoop wheatgrass powder
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1/2 scoop casein protein
    1/2 scoop whey protein powder
    1 frozen banana
    2 tsp chia seeds
    3 tsp psyllium husks (fiber)

    I blended it in my Vitamix for a refreshing breakfast superfood boost.

  12. Old ways don’t open new doors

  13. It may look messy, but this is full of protein, good fats and complex carbs to keep you through the day!

    It’s like a quinoa frittata! It’s a lazy frittata because I cooked in in the bowl in the microwave for a couple minutes. I cracked 4 eggs and mixed it with 2 spoonfuls of homemade vegetable tomato sauce and 1/4 cup serving cooked organic red quinoa. Things like these are great when you have leftovers and need a way to eat them all together. Delicious!

    Try new things and take care of your body!
