Chocolate Bunny Juice

Spring is in the air, the weather is getting warmer and Easter is right around the corner.  It’s the perfect time to make this rich chocolate bunny juice.  This recipe is from Natalia Rose’s book Fresh Energy.  Natalia is a mentor and detox teacher that I’ve been following for years, her cookbooks are amazing, I strongly suggest you get her newest Fresh Energy!  I’ve completed her PH Detox course and I continue to learn tips and tricks from her.  If you’ve never had a fresh juice before this would be a great one to start with.  Using raw cocoa powder gives it a chocolatey velvet texture, which makes it taste like chocolate milk. This recipe is so easy to make and it has less than four ingredients in it.  Celebrate the spring like the bunnies do and have some chocolate bunny juice!!! Ingredients: 1 bunch of romaine lettuce 6 large carrots 1-2 tbsp raw cocoa stevia to taste Preparation: Put lettuce and carrots through a juicer. Add raw cocoa to juice with stevia to taste(start small with stevia you won’t need a lot).  Blend all ingredients together and enjoy your bunny juice.  Happy...

Veggie and Goat Cheese Frittata

You know I love my eggs!  This is a great breakfast option for the weekend, and can even be made for dinner.  Frittatas are an Italian style omelet and can be eaten by themselves or thrown on some whole grain bread to make a great breakfast sandwich.  This frittata servers four. Ingredients:  8 eggs 1 Tbsp  butter(preferably organic, unsalted) 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper(color of your choice) 1/4 cup onion 1/4-1/2 cup diced asparagus 1/4 cup chopped tomato 2 garlic cloves, minced(finely chopped) 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese salt and pepper to taste Preparation: Place a medium sized pan over medium-low heat.  Place oven broiler on high. Once pan is heated add butter, bell pepper, onion, and asparagus.  Saute for 6-7 minutes until veggies become slightly soft. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add tomato, garlic, and Italian seasoning. Saute for about 3 minutes until tomatoes become tender. In a separate bowl whisk eggs together. Add eggs to sauted pan.  Do not touch mixture, you want to let the eggs “set”.  Wait about 6-7 minutes until you see the edges of the eggs start to cook, and you can gently lift the sides of the frittata.  Sprinkle the goat cheese on top of the eggs. Place the pan under the broiler for about 2-3 minutes, until the eggs are cooked. Cut frittata into four slices and serve as is, or place on some whole wheat bread for a breakfast...

Eggs over Quinoa

Eggs over Quinoa

I’ve been doing some experimenting with quinoa by adding it into my breakfast.  I used to only use it as a side or something I mixed in with my salads but lately I’ve been thinking a little outside of the box(at least outside of my box).  Quinoa breaks the grain stereotype in that it is a great source of protein.  In fact the protein it supplies contains all nine essential amino acids.  It also has high amounts of magnesium, and fiber and even a substantial amount of calcium.  If you don’t already use it, get it into your diet.  Your body will thank you! I served one tomato sliced up and sauteed with two eggs over medium(or cooked to your liking) over the quinoa.  Delish!!!  I will definitely be using this meal in my regular rotations of breakfast choices. It also takes about 7 minutes to cook! Ingredients: 2 eggs 1/2 cup cooked quinoa(I cook a huge batch at the beginning of the week, so it’s ready to go!) 1 tomato sliced salt and pepper Coconut oil Preparation: Place cooked quiona on a plate.  Heat up a medium skilled over medium heat.  Add your two eggs and cook for about one minute, seasoning with salt and pepper.  Add tomato slices.  Cook your eggs to your preference.  I cook mine over medium(egg white is cooked but yolk is runny), the easiest way to do this is just cook without a cover over the pan for about 2 minutes, then add the cover to the pan until the white part of the eggs is cooked through but the yolk is still runny.  Once eggs are done, put tomato sliced over the quinoa then add the eggs on top.  Season with salt and pepper as...
