November Recipe!

Almond Smoothie Bowl!

Shrug off drowsiness and stay fueled all day long...you will need it for the busy month ahead. Begin you day with this delicious breakfast.

Take 6 oz of almond milk, 2 oz coconut water, t Tbsp almond butter, 1 peeled banana which is frozen, 1Tsp coconut oil. Add all ingredients to a blender and whirl away until smooth. Pour into a bowl. Top with any handy fresh fruit and some honey. Yum!!

 

Kitchen Hacks you will love!

If you have your butter in the fridge and need to butter toast, grate it then sprinkle on toast to melt.

To check for freshness of eggs, fill a glass up with water, if the egg floats it's not so fresh, if it falls to the bottom it is fresh.

To cook an omelette without a pan, take a baggie, put in 3 eggs, cheese, S & P, Hot sauce, onion...anything you want. Ziplock the top and give it a shake to mix the ingredients. Put in a simmering water bath for approx. 8 minutes. Ta Da!

To clean a BBQ grill, cut an onion in half and use the flat side on the grill.

Squeeze a 1/2 lemon between tongs, cut side up so the seeds don't get into the food.

When you bring home green onions from the store or garden, cut them up and put in a jar in fridge. They will last longer, but you will use them faster as they are ready to go!

Soak dried pasta for 60-90 minutes. Then boil for only 2 minutes til done. Tastes like fresh pasta.

Use an egg slicer for strawberries and mushrooms. Works great!
