Greens and Shrooms

Greens and Shrooms

This recipe has an Asian flare. It takes no time at all to make and it’s super healthy. The kale and broccoli are two foods that helps aid in cancer prevention. The shiitake mushrooms can be great to build the immune system. This is one of my favorite dishes! All organic ingredients used here.

one bunch of kale chopped (green, black, purple or lanciato kale will do)

a crown or two of broccoli chopped

a handful of shiitake mushrooms sliced

one onion chopped

a few sprigs of green onion finely sliced

a couple of squirts of tamari sauce

a spoon or two of extra virgin olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

In a medium fry pan add oil, onion and musrooms. Saute on medium-low heat until cooked, stirring frquently. Meanwhile in a steamer, steam the kale and broccoli under tender but not overcooked. It should have a bright, vibrant green color. When the greens are done, add to the pan of mushrooms and toss. Add the tamari sauce and serve hot.

Tip: garnish with sesame seeds for a complete look

Blueberry Breakfast Wrap

Blueberry Breakfast Wrap

Here is a quick and easy breakfast item that is super dee-lish! Please remember that I don’t use exact measurements when I cook. Remember to open your intuition and follow your heart.

a handful or organic granola

a small container of organic vanilla or plain yoghurt (either dairy or soy)

a handful of fresh washed organic blueberries

Combine banana, maple syrup, yoghurt and granola in a bowl. Then mix in blueberries.

a banana mashed up in a bowl

a spoon of almond butter (or peanut butter or cashew butter)

a dab of maple syrup (or honey)

2 torillas (10 inches)

Combine banana, syrup, yoghurt, granola in a bowl. Then add in blueberries. Spread almond butter onto each tortilla. Spoon berry mixture onto each tortilla (be careful to not add too much!). Add berry mixture to the bottom half of the tortilla and then roll it up from the bottom while tucking in the edges. You can also wrap it up in tin foil if you need to take it on the go.

Bon appetit!
