BLACK & STRAWBERRY SMOOTHIE

Blackberries are rich in dietary fiber and antioxidants. Blending with handful of strawberries, bananas and honey can be yummy and refreshing post workout snack or meal replacement. I also used plant based protein powder that is gluten, soy and dairy free to suit all dietary needs.

2 bananas

1.5 cups strawberries

1.5 cups blackberries

21 g raw protein powder

honey

4 ice cubes

SPINACH & STRAWBERRY SALAD

Spinach_Strawberry_Salad.jpg

Spinach and strawberries are a perfect combination as weather warms, especially if you’ re craving something sweet & savory. You can make satisfying lunch or simple dinner. And if you decide to “go nuts” by adding pecans, they are an excellent source of calcium and other important minerals; you'll surely get a bowl full of vitamins.

serves 3

1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced

5 cups baby spinach leaves

½ cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese

1-2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar or cranberry dressing

½ cup pecans (based on your calorie output, you can reward yourself with candied pecans)

Wash and dry spinach leaves, then place them into a medium-sized bowl. Drizzle a bit of dressing over the leaves. Gently toss spinach leaves with strawberries, gorgonzola cheese and top with pecans. Taste the salad and if needed, drizzle on a little bit more dressing.
