2 Fit Mommy Approved Recipes that Pack a Nutritional Punch

11 Jan

Busy schedules mean easy meals to avoid hitting the candy dish at work or grabbing sugar/processed packed “energy” bars.  I wanted to offer up some recipes that pack a serious nutritional punch, are tasty, can be made in advance and are great breakfast options.  I have to pack all of my breakfast/lunch/snacks into a bag @ 5:30(am) so this takes a little advance planning to grab and go, but it is worth it.

Coconut Packed Shake – I blend and freeze this the night before and then take it out of the freezer in the morning.  I drink it as it thaws over the course of the morning.  It’s super filling and tastes good.  No sugar added and the 1/2 frozen barely ripe banana kills the taste of the spinach and kale for those of you who are not fans of “green” drinks. 
– 4 ounces water
– 8 ounces unsweetned coconut milk
– 2 tsp coconut butter (I love Artisana brand)
– 2 T shredded coconut
– 1 tsp chia seeds
– 1 tsp flax seeds
– 1/2 frozen banana – just barely ripe (I peel a few of them and freeze them in a ziploc bag)
– 1 tsp Maca Root Powder – I really like MacaForce
– 2 tsp Spirulina
– 1 tsp Chlorella
– 2 tsp fresh ground almond butter.  I like grounding it myself at Whole Foods, if the machine is down (which happens sometimes) grab Artisana brand – there is nothing added and it is tasty
– 2 cups spinach
– 1 cup kale

Frittatta sans the Potatoes
– sliced yellow squash
– sliced zucchini
– finely chopped kale
– loose baby spinach
– shallots
– bacon fat (gives this a smokey taste, but you can use coconut oil or ghee)
– fresh salsa
– tumeric
– paprika
– cayenne
– pinch of celtic salt
– fresh ground pepper to taste
– garlic
– eggs (whites)

I put ghee, bacon fat or coconut oil to soften the shallots and garlic.  They I lay down pieces of squash and zucchini so they cover the entire pan and then just add kale and spinach.  I put a top on and let everything cook a bit (about 5 minutes or so) – then I add the salsa and egg whites (I have sensitivities to egg yolks, but you could add one yolk and a few whites for the added nutrition) and seasoning and then I cover and let it cook on medium low heat until it is relatively firm.  I use a pizza slicer to cut into 4 sections and then I turn it over to firm up the other side.

I pair this with mixed greens or kale salad and raw vegetables and it is really yummy.  Each one is about 2 servings, make two and you have lunch for most of the week.
