Healthy Breakfast and Lunch Creations
Breakfast on the Go
1/4 cup mango
1/4 cup blueberries
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
Orange slices to cover
Layer ingredients in order listed in a Mason jar. Top with a sprinkle of pomegranate. You can also grab a yogurt to mix in. when you are ready to eat.
Lunch on the Go
1 layer broccoli
Cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup quinoa
2 radishes, sliced
1/4 avocado, sliced (squeeze a bit of lemon or lime juice over the avocados)
Layer ingredients in order listed in a Mason jar. Always place your beans or veggies that won’t wilt on the bottom. You can pour your dressing over your salad before leaving.
I love using a very simple dressing of extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar or fresh lemon juice. Any oil-based dressing works really well.
Healthy Green Smoothie
This is a great way to have smoothie ingredients ready to be blended.
You can also pre-make these packets. Instead of placing the ingredients in the jar, put them in a zip-lock bag and freeze it. Just add your juice or water and blend.
1/2 cup spinach
1/2 cup parsley
1/2 apple, cut in fourths
Squeeze fresh lime juice
In a Mason jar or zip-lock bag, add the above ingredients. I love to blend with a half juice, half water ratio. Add a scoop of vanilla protein when blending to kick it up a notch.
