Garden of Life Raw Protein: Marley Coffee

20 Oct

Though I don’t tend to drink coffee very much these days (maybe once a month) I was very excited to try the new powder from Garden of Life Raw: Protein with Marley Coffee.

What is Marley Coffee?

Marley Coffee, led by Bob Marley’s son, Rohan, is a “sustainably grown, ethically farmed and artisan-roasted coffee company.”  Marley Coffee “strives to support communities and the environment through organic, sustainable and ethical practices.”  That sounds good to me :D

Ultimate Thanksgiving Sandwich + Cookbook + Giveaway!!

14 Oct

As some of you may have seen (via my Facebook Page or Twitter account) I have published my first cookbook!! :D

I have so many people to thank for helping me get this cookbook to where it needs to be <3 too many to list… but you can see many of their names in the cookbook!  Recipe testers, family, friends… the list is too long!

Well anyways, it has been taking up so much of my time and I have been heavily neglecting my blog and my Meat Free Athlete blogging duties!  So look out for a new post tonight or tomorrow on MFA!

Ultimate Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich

Serving size varies depending on amount of leftovers (:

For one sandwich:

1 slice Holiday Lentil Loaf

3 tablespoons Golden Gravy

2 tablespoons Mashed Cauliflower

1 tablespoon cranberry sauce

2 teaspoons Vegenaise

2 slices whole grain bread

Directions:

Reheat the lentil loaf in a few teaspoons of olive oil in a nonstick sauté pan.  Meanwhile, lightly toast the bread.

Spread 1 tablespoon cranberry sauce on one slice of bread and 2 teaspoons Vegenaise on the other slice.  When the holiday lentil loaf is heated through, place it on one slice of bread then, using the same hot sauté pan, reheat the mashed cauliflower.  Spread the heated cauliflower over the holiday lentil loaf and, again using the same hot sauté pan, heat the gravy.  Pour the gravy over the cauliflower then top with the remaining bread.  Slice down the middle, grab a napkin, and enjoy your holiday feast again (:

Berry Chocolate Smoothie Cups

21 Aug

Now that I have my glorious VitaMix back in my presence I have been going smoothie crazy :D

This month for The Recipe Redux, a great blogging group I am a member of (MORE INFO HERE), our assigned topic was “Raising the Bar on Food in a Jar.”  I absolutely love this theme!!  I try and use as little plastic as possible in my everyday life so mason jars are my go-to!!  For my post today I made one of my favorite time-saving recipes: Smoothie in a Jar

Smoothie in a Jar

Serves 1-2

For each mason jar (make as many as you’d like for the week):

2/3 cups greens

2 tablespoons raw almonds

2 tablespoons hemp protein powder, vanilla

For the smoothie (when you are ready to make it):

2/3 cups frozen mixed berries

1 cup chocolate almond milk

Directions:

Dump the contents of one mason jar into your VitaMix, or any strong blender.  Add in the frozen mixed berries and chocolate almond milk.  Blend on high until smooth.  Pour back into mason jar with lid to take with you on the go or enjoy right away (:

Looking to buy a VitaMix blender, but unsure if you’re ready to make the investment?

Buy your blender through me, by CLICKING HERE or using the button on the sidebar, and PAY NO SHIPPING!!  VitaMix does not pay me to say this… I honestly love mine and can’t picture my life before it <3, but since you would purchase through me to receive no shipping, I do get a percentage of the sale.
