Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins

I love a good muffin, but once you add flour, sugar and chocolate chips, we might as well just admit we are having cake for breakfast. And though a muffin smoothie is fun, sometimes, I just need the comfort of a warm, delicious muffin. Here is a recipe that I created that means I am doing something good for my family, and even the pickiest of kids will never know they are eating VEGGIES!



Gluten free, refined sugar, and dairy free. Flavor full, Chocolate muffins!

4 eggs
1 shredded zucchini
1/3 cup honey
2/3 cup cane sugar or xylitol
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3 cups almond flour
2 scoops Green Blendfresh
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
1 tsp baking powder

Place all the items in a blender and mix until creamy.

Grease the muffin tins or silicone muffin cups. There is no oil in this recipe, so they need a little help coming out! Fill the muffins 2/3 full and bake at 325 for 25-35 min until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.



Allow muffins to cool thoroughly before popping them out. Enjoy a healthy breakfast that is low in sugar, high in protein and filled with nutrition packed green veggies. Kid tested and approved! This partners well with my Mango Madness Smoothie!

Mango Madness Smoothie

This is one of my favorite smoothies. It is a sweet one, however, so probably not great for a candida diet. But for trying to add beautiful yellow and orange fruits and veggies to your diet, this is perfect!

Yellow/Orange fruits and veggies contain phytonutrients that nourish on a cellular level. They help the body maintain a healthy blood pressure, promote a healthy prostate, support healthy cholesterol levels, fight free radicals, boost the immune system, and build bones!  Packed with mango, banana, pumpkin, oranges, butternut squash, yellow pepper, carrots and more! The fiber powder is optional, but serves well to keep you fuller for longer and promote healthy bowel function. Just what every smoothie drinker wants to hear!! :)



1 cup coconut milk
1 mango, peeled and chunked
1 banana
1 scoop Blendfresh Orange fruits and veggies
1 scoop protein powder
1 scoop Blendfresh fiber
1 cup ice (more if you like thicker)
Place the ingredients in a blender (Blendtec recommended) in the order listed. Process until smooth. Serves one.

The mango flavor is strong and wonderful mixed with coconut. If you love mangos, you will love this smoothie. Kid tested and approved!

Lemon Berry Swirl Cake

The idea for this recipe came from my 5 year old son who asked if we could make a colorful cake by mixing all the Blendfresh fruits and veggies together. I talked him out of green, cuz cake with asparagus, kale and spinach does not exactly sound like a party!! So, we opted for purple and reds which have more berry flavor. The result was beautiful and no artificial colors were used!


Ingredients:

1 cup coconut oil
1 stick butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
Zest of 2 lemons
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 cup milk
4 cups organic white flour (Or ground soft white wheat)
2 T baking powder
1 scoop of Blendfresh Red or Purple or a mix of each.

I threw it all in my Blendtec  blender and let it rip. There is no end to what this blender can do!! Turned out great. But, if you want to go the more traditional route then do the following:

Mix oil, butter and sugar until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time. Then add the zest and the lemon juice, the baking soda and one cup of flour. Mix until smooth. Then add 1/3 of the milk and another cup of flour and mix until smooth. Then add another 1/3 cup of milk and a cup of flour, mix until smooth. Then the rest of the milk and flour and do the final mix.

Pour half the batter into a 9x13 baking dish. Then add your choice of Blendfresh to the other half. . The reds and purples stand out the most. Do a full scoop of one or 1/2 scoop of each to add color and a slight berry flavor. Stir well to incorporate.



Drop spoonfuls of the red mix on top of the yellow cake. Then use a chop stick or knife to swirl the reds into the yellow. I go up and down vertically, then again horizontally.



Bake at 350 for 35 min or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.



Frosting:
3 oz cream cheese
3 TB butter
Juice of one lemon
1 t vanilla
2-3 cups of powdered sugar

Once the cake has cooled, frost liberally! Cut and enjoy.

This cake is dense and moist and delicious and not a hint of vegetable flavor. I love that it contains no artificial food dyes that are linked to hyperactivity! Just another wonderful way to use Blendfresh!!

Do you prefer tops or bottoms? For me, I like the tops best, of course, but since most blueberry muffins are no more than cake, they tend to expand my top and my bottom!

Loaded Taco Soup

This recipe is kid approved, if you don't count my 5 year old who doesn't like anything. It is loaded with is tons of fruits and veggies. The kids loved it and I had seconds, and thirds, and maybe even fourths, but who is counting?

Loaded Taco Soup:



1 lb grass-fed ground beef, cooked and drained
4 cups organic beef broth
1 can mild Rotel or preferred salsa
16 oz organic tomato sauce
14 oz organic tomatoes, canned or freshly chopped
24 oz cooked organic black beans
1 cup frozen organic corn
2 scoops yellow or red Blendfresh Fruits and Veggies (or one of each)
Taco Seasoning, salt, pepper and garlic to taste.

Add beef broth to cooked and seasoned ground beef. Then start adding cans of stuff. Add the Blendfresh and adjust seasonings according to taste. Bring it to a boil and turn it off. Or put all the ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low for at least 4 hours.

This soup is delicious alone but really comes to life with a dollop of organic sour cream, organic corn chips, cilantro and green onions. And don't forget the cheese! Nothing is truly loaded without cheese!

Lose Weight, Feel Great With a Spring Cleanse!

14 Days to a Radiant You!

A few weeks ago, I attended a conference on Integrative Healing in San Diego. It was an amazing experience and I met so many fantastic presenters and advocates of natural wellness. All presenters were in agreement that a diet full of vibrant, living foods is best for a cancer free life. Did you know that eating to prevent cancer is also eating to look great?

Unfortunately, we live in a world of convenience and there is a disconnect between what we know we should eat and what we actually do. It happens to all of us. We have periods of good habits punctuated with periods of junk food. I know I do.

To combat that, cleansing is super effective. It is recommended once a quarter. I have found a cleanse that is great for those of us with short attention spans. Some cleanses go on and on and on. This one is 14 days to a radiant you! Offered by Holistic Health Coach Taynua Page, a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.

I would love you to check it out at A Reflection of Health! Here is a little bit of what Taynua has to say: 
 
 
My name is Taynua Page and I’m a holistic health coach through The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I help women have better digestion, clearer skin and more vibrant energy.
 
I created this program because I once had severe digestive problems (IBS), very low energy and severe joint pain so I can empathize with what you are feeling and going through.
 
So often, we eat foods that we think are healthy because the label tricks us, because the magazines say so, because the diet books say so, but they are actually causing us embarrassing gas while on a steamy date, uncomfortable bloating while we try to squeeze into a slim dress, and inflammation that can actually be painful. I know I’m FED UP, are you?
 
The Spring Cleanse Program is about discovering what works for YOU and YOUR unique body. No more guessing. No more hopping on and off of different diet roller coasters, and no more frustration because nothing seems to work. Say hello to tapping into your unique body blueprint which will give you limitless wisdom on which foods will love your body back.
 
Did you know: Your body is carrying roughly 5-10 pounds of toxicity (a.k.a inflammation) at any given time. Which means that headache, bloated belly, or that extra weight that’s staying on? Yep. Probably toxicity.
 
Here are some of the results you can expect on the program:
  • Lose an average of 3-5 pounds in one week - naturally!
  • Feel lighter and have tons of energy - take the dance floor by storm!
  • Kick sugar cravings to the curb - learn how to enjoy healthy sweets!
  • Sleep peacefully through the night - no more dark circles under those eyes!
  • Decrease inflammation - and feel amazing in the buff!
  • Get ready for bikini season - with confidence that could kill!
 

 



I know this program is perfect for you if…

You’re ready to ditch the diet and figure out what ACTUALLY works for you
You’re ready to kiss the belly bloat that’s been lingering
You want more energy so you can enjoy your life more without feeling tired
You want to look and feel younger without the botox and caffeine
You want to jumpstart your metabolism and enjoy a night out on the town
You want to balance your blood sugar and kick cravings to the curb
You’re busy and want quick, easy tools & recipes that work without causing overwhelm



Sound like you?


Then sign up for this Spring Cleanse adventure. You deserve it! Starts April 30th!
