Lean, Mean & Green
Well, not mean. 😉 This morning I had a delectable smoothie that totally energized my morning after an invigorating Warrior Yoga session at the gym. I call it my Green Goddess Smoothie.
- 1/2 c. water
- 1 large leaf romaine lettuce
- 1/3 cup frozen papaya chunks
- 3 sections grapefruit
- 3 sections blood orange
- 1/2 section lime
- 1/4 tsp NuNaturals stevia powder
- 1/2 tsp fresh ginger
- 1 tbsp frozen banana slices
I know it looks suspect, but it was actually really yummy!! Good thing I started out my morning so strong because when I got into work I was hit with a massive crisis that I had to take care of ASAP. Eeek! I actually managed to sort everything out and avoid getting stressed – a huge deal for me!!! Now I remember why I used to be such a huge fan of yoga.
I somehow felt energized enough to hit the gym and knock out a little over a 1/2 mile of swimming (25 laps in a 25 meter pool). Afterwards though I was dying for some sustenance!! I had the rest of my butternut squash fries, but won’t bore you with the pics 😉 I also had what may become a new staple dish for me… Vegan Sausage & Peppers!! The recipe is found here. The only thing I did differently this time was add 1 Tbsp tomato paste with some water to create a thin sauce.
For those of you that were wondering about homemade seitan, I actually used some Seitan Sausages that I made here. They’re so good and the fennel seeds adds such a great flavor reminiscent of sweet Italian sausages. Well I’m off to relax & wait for The Office to start! Do any of you guys have any good faux meat recipes that you’d care to share??
