Spiralized apple breakfast parfait

So I just got a new spiralizer. The huge kind that takes up counter space because the little hand one I had was impossible so I spent money on premade vegetable noodles at the store. So I’m telling you this because I’m likely to be spiralizing everything for every meal for weeks lol. On to…

Matcha melon madness

This morning I wanted a beverage that was hydrating and had caffeine. I was tired and going to a run. So hydration and caffine seemed equally important. I also wanted some protien to help as well.

smoothie tip: freeze your greens!

When I buy greens I buy an enormous package. Of course then they go bad quickly. So to avoid spoiled, unused vegetables I freeze them in easy to use cubes! It’s really easy to do! I blend all of my greens in my vitamix with just enough coconut water to get it to blend! Then…

Blender matcha

Today was rainy and cold. The kind of morning where you question if you really NEED to wake up. I decided against a smoothie and decided to make myself some matcha instead. I don’t ever drink coffee, only tea, and don’t do well if I over do it with the caffeine so matcha isn’t an…
