My personal experiences have lead me to cook more medicinally and super simply. I think of food and diet as a conversation between my mind, body and senses. I’m an intuitive cook and I actually don’t really like recipes or use recipes (I like to “free bake” as my kids would say), and I would encourage you to do the same. Experiment, try new things, and just listen to your body.
On any given Morning, I’ll start my day with a large glass of water and 2 shots of Espresso with homemade almond milk (Don’t be intimidated - it sounds more difficult than it actually is!).
Breakfast: Homemade Almond Milk
1 cup raw organic almonds
4 cups pure filtered water plus a little more
Pinch of sea salt (very small)
½ tsp vanilla extract
Sweetener - 2 dates or 2 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
Soak the almonds in water overnight (or up to 2 days). The longer you soak, the creamier it will be. Drain & rinse the almonds and grind them (either in a blender or food processor) with the fresh, pure, filtered water, sea salt, vanilla extra and optional sweetener. The resulting liquid, drained from the almond meal, is almond milk!
Breakfast: Egg & Veggie Scramble
1 slab of Kerrygold butter
Sauteed leftover dinner veggies (broccoli, asparagus, cauliflower)
Hot sauce (optional)
Add the slab of Kerrygold butter in a hot pan, leftover veggies and two eggs (we get ours from our chicken coop) cracked straight into the pan and start scrambling until the eggs are cooked. Add a little hot sauce for an extra kick.
Breakfast: Fruit, Nut & Greens Smoothie (that my kids love!)
2 cups of Liquid - almond milk, coconut water, coconut milk, cashew milk, water
4 cups of fresh or frozen Strawberries and Blueberries
2 cups of greens fresh or frozen Spinach
Add in extras of your choice: chia, coconut oil, collagen powder, nut butters, probiotics (This is when you listen to what your body needs!)
Breakfast: Paleo Blueberry Muffins
We make these easy, yummy, healthy muffins constantly.
Lunch: Kale Salad
1 Bunch of Kale
Light drizzle of Olive Oil
Light drizzle Vinegar
Salt & Pepper
Salmon/Grilled chicken (optional)
On-the-go: A few options!
Juice Press Doctor Green Juice
Water, water, water!
A small piece of Dark Chocolate
Dinner: Broiled Salmon with Veggies
Lightly coat the salmon filets with on Borzari seasoning and a drizzle of Grapeseed Oil. Broil at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through. I cook the sweet potatoes and butternut squash every which way! You can even make it easier on yourself and roast the veggies on a seperate rack in the oven.
Dinner: Flank Steak with Greens
Braggs Amino Acids
Garlic (or Ginger)
Coconut Oil (or Olive oil)
Marinate the flank steak in Braggs Amino Acids and Grapeseed Oil for a few hours. Once done marinating, broil or grill (your choice!). Saute the green in garlic (or ginger) in the oil of your choice until softened.
Happy free baking!
