Personal Healthy Eating Challenge – Day 7

Well, today was supposed to be the last day of my challenge, but it turns out that’s not the case.  Sometimes life has other ideas.  Doesn’t deter me though…just gotta keep pushing on!  Plus, I really don’t want to miss out on any of these yummy smoothies and salads!  Here was my day today…

BERRYLICIOUS PROTEIN SMOOTHIE

** note that this recipe only makes about 1/2 litre of smoothie, so if you want more you can double it! **

Makes 1 serving

  • 1 fresh or frozen banana
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen mixed berries
  • 1 cup kale, stems removed*
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds or 1 scoop plant based protein powder
  • 1 cup homemade almond milk**
* I used spinach instead of kale and it worked out great
** You can use store bought almond milk as well

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.  Enjoy!

CHILLED BROWN RICE SALAD

** Make sure you don’t skip the fresh dill in this one…it really makes it! **

Makes 2 servings

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 2 cups water or organic vegetable broth
  • ½ bunch fresh dill, chopped
  • 4 cups mixed greens*
  • 1 cucumber, shredded
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
* I used romaine and purple leaf lettuce

Place brown rice and water or vegetable broth in a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until rice is tender (about 40 or 45 minutes – read the directions on the bag of rice). Remove from heat and chill. Combine chilled brown rice with remaining salad ingredients and toss together.

Hope you made it through your Monday ok!
