Ever since I did the Clean Cleanse I’ve stuck to a pretty clean diet and feel SO much better! I always love the recipes they share on the Clean blog including this simple seared tuna and roasted red pepper relish dish. The Yellowtail Tuna rich in omega-3’s and the sweet roasted red peppers provide nearly 300 percent of the daily recommended vitamin C intake, added B6, and magnesium. The combination of vitamins and minerals in this meal make it a light and all around pick-me-up.
Add a little salad and you have yourself a beautiful and CLEAN lunch or dinner.
Here’s the thing about whipping up a great smoothie: just about anything goes. The key is having the right combination of ingredients to get the perfect consistency over and over again and for that, I have the ultimate formula:
Non-Dairy Silk Milk Base + Frozen Banana + Leafy Greens + Fruit + Superfood
With this formula, you can make a great smoothie time and time again. Simply plug in the blanks with your favorites and get blending. You can adjust the quantities as needed but as a rough rule I like 1/2-2 cups of Silk milk (I love almond, soy or cashew milk or their non-dairy yogurt), 2/3 of frozen banana, 2-3 handfuls of leafy greens, 2-3 handfuls of fruit and 1/2-1 tablespoon of superfood (flax seed, acai or cacao, etc.).
Watch the video to see the formula in action and to give the formula a go, here is a delicious spring smoothie recipe for you:
The Mango Bliss
You will need:
1/2-3/4 cups Silk Almond Milk
1 handful of kale
1 handful of spinach
1 handful of frozen mango
1 handful of frozen strawberries
1/2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
Toss all ingredients to your blender, combine and enjoy!
Between searing for 2 minutes and baking for 5, it will take you about 10 minutes total. Win? Win!
I made the dish last night (who saw it on snapchat –> @gerihirsch?) and it was delightful. I followed the recipe as is but soaked the fish in water for 20 minutes then patted dry thoroughly with paper towels. I find that soaking sea bass makes the fish softer.
Served with salad or vegetables and a glass of wine….mmmm so good!
While in Brazil we ate Acai and a lot of it. We’d grab it from a stand for breakfast or buy it off a guy selling it on the hot beach as a nice cold snack – it was so delicious and as it turns out, nutritious. Acai berries are a great source of antioxidants, fiber and heart-healthy fats.
Blended together and topped with fruit, nuts & coconut and you have yourself heaven in a bite! Here’s how you can make it at home:
One of the biggest breakfast trends as of late is breakfast bowls. They are everywhere and in all sorts of iterations – quinoa, oatmeal, rice, et al. Inspired by the idea, I’ve been testing out a few recipes and this particular one is absolutely delicious for those that enjoy quinoa, tofu and miso.
