Your Pantry

I recommend keeping the following things in the pantry, prepared for easy access. You can use mason jars for freshness and keep a little plastic measuring spoon with it ( i.e. as they come with protein powders, about 1tbsp). Try and use nut butters that are the least processed. 

  • Chia Seeds
  • Maca Powder
  • Cacao Nibs
  • Almond Butter
  • Peanut Butter (any nut butter you like)
  • Shredded Coconut
  • Coconut Oil
  • Turmeric

Prepare the following fruits and freeze in Tupperware (this also works for some vegetables):

  • Avocado
  • All Berries
  • Mango
  • Chopped Ginger Bits
  • Fruits (banana, apples, pears, peaches)

Buy the following fresh as needed:

  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Arugula
  • Lemon
  • Limes

Liquids to have handy to mix the ingredients with (for smoothies) :

  • Cold Pressed Juices (please use more veggie than fruit juices to keep sugar content low)
  • Coconut Water
  • Almond Milk
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Water

Sleepy Morning Smoothie

 

My typical sleepy smoothie (because I'm on autopilot so early in the AM) - This is a big one that you have several servings of!

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp maca powder
  • 3 tbsp nut butter
  • 1/2-1 avocado
  • a few pinches of turmeric
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup of leafy greens
  • 1/2 cup of berries
  • some mango slices
  • 1/2 cup cold pressed juice
  • extra coconut water if it’s not thin enough

Blend all ingredients ’til smooth and enjoy! (I recommend VITAMIX or NUTRIBULLET)
