Peachy-Lime Strawberry Smoothie

  IMG_1079

Breakfast smoothies are my go-to morning food.  They are time saving, can be drank on the way to work plus there are so many different flavors that can be created, I never get bored.  But not all smoothies are created equally or provide the same nutritional value.

 In March of 2015, I began using Shakeology when I looked at the ingredient list and was pretty impressed.  I was willing to put my current protein powder aside and put it to the test.  Within 3 months, my face had cleared up, my energy increased, my cravings were manageable, my thinking was clearer and my digestive tract was running like clockwork.  Shakeology is more than a protein powder but made from whole food with vitamins and nutrients that support a healthy lifestyle.  Even on days I miss my nutrition mark, drinking Shakeology secures my body one sound meal.  Want to know more – email me at debra.hallock@gmail.com Remember recipes give a direction to head but are suggestions and one can most the time exchange similar ingredients in an out to achieve general destination.

Quinoa-Cinnamon Pancakes

My daughter makes amazing Blueberry Quinoa Pancakes – did I say amazing?  Okay just checking because they are.  The quinoa gives these cakes extra protein power.

 I’ve recently discovered that due to food allergies I need to take it easy on the dairy and eggs so I was inspired to keep the integrity of her recipe but make it something that works a bit better for my body.  I came up with this version using no dairy and only 1 egg. Keep in mind that my recipe is cut in half from hers.
