BEST classic hummus EVER

  
This is hands down the creamiest best tasting hummus I’ve made. But before I go on, I didn’t want to use this pic, but LOOK ๐Ÿ‘€ at that pepper in the front !?!? 

Do you see what I see? Ha! frickin CUTE little face! 

Ok- so I added to my Vitamix (or you can use a food processor) 

1 can of chickpeas 

1/4 c water

1/4 c olive oil

1/4 c organic tahini

3 tbsp lemon juice (fresh!)

3/4 tsp seal salt (pink Himalayan is best)

1/2 tsp cumin

1 whole garlic clove 

Process until smooth. Store in a mason jar. I ALWAYS double this recipe as its a staple for our food prep week, every week! Super easy to have as quick meals with pre sliced veggies, wraps and salads. 

Clean chicken zoodle soup: Gluten free

ย Wow. We had this for dinner tonight and it was SCRUMPTIOUS! All veggies are chopped using a chop wizard, and the zucchini is spiralized.

Ingredients : 8-10 c chicken broth. ย 2 c carrots, 1 1/2 c onion. 2 c celery. 3 garlic cloves. 2 zucchini (spiralized). 3 c chopped chicken breast or thigh. 4 Roma tomatoes, chopped. ย Fresh parsley. Salt. Garlic salt. Pepper.

I added to my Vitamix:

2 c chicken broth

2 carrots

2 celery sticks

1/2 c onion

1 tomato

3 garlic cloves

Purรฉe together on high until warm. (Makes an “orange” broth. It will be frothy. It’s okay- it will disappear.

Combine purรฉed mixture into a soup pot and add 8 cups of chicken broth, 1 1/2 c carrots, 1 1/2 c celery, and 1 c chopped onion, remaining tomatoes with 3 cups chopped or shredded chicken (Use baked or grilled breast, thighs, whatever your preference is. For this I used a chicken I had baked, then boiled the rest for soup base.) Bring to boil and simmer on low until veggies are soft.

ย I like my soups chunky and my veggies not overcooked!

Add a tsp of Himalayan sea salt, several grinds of a garlic salt mill and pepper to taste. I like to add some fresh parsley and the spiralized zucchini last so that it cooks only to just soft. And serve. Leftovers: store in a mason jar for freshness throughout the week.

How to wash fruits and veggies – the proper way of course ! ๐Ÿ˜œ

Food prep is KEY!

Food prep is KEY! Here’s what we are up to today! PREPPING! The one simple key to beginning food prep begins with this: As SOON as you get home from the grocery store, before your items even hit your refrigerator, take a couple metal cookie sheets out and begin dicing up fruits and veggies and place them in none other than a mason jar. Why jars? I’ll post on that also but please view my video on getting started here “Food Prep 101: Getting started”  Mason jars are essential to SAVING MONEY ON YOUR GROCERY BILL. Why? They preserve the food so much longer!  It’s insane, you won’t ever stop once you start. Just trust me, go buy some various sizes and start using them. Oh, and hey moms and dads,  grammas and gramps, aunts and uncles, I’ve been using them for YEARS with small children. I can count one hand how many times we’ve broken a jar. And hey, that’s life! Be a daredevil and just USE THE JARS! ๐Ÿ˜‰    Whoops, I almost forgot to tell you how to properly wash the veggies: Just soak for about 15-20 minutes in cool water with 1/8-1/2 c of white vinegar to clean. Rinse, slice and dice, and place in JARS!    xo! Dori

 

Strawberry lemonade – made from the Master cleanse tonic

  
For those hot days!! ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ‹Here in NC that’s like, every day. We made this last night and it’s totally kid approved. Moms, juice has ZERO nutrients, we don’t buy it. But, whole food STRAWBERRY LEMONADE? YES please! This recipe was actually adapted from the master lemon cleanse tonic. ZERO processed sugar, massively cleansing to the liver and kidneys, it’s health benefits are insane! AND. It’s down right delicious. The only color you need is real fruit color! (Just say no to artificial colors, they are toxic crap.) And drink 8 oz of this a day and kidney stones be gone ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, really. 

Go. Make. This. Today. Ur welcome. ———————————————๐Ÿ˜Ž

Family size: 

Half gallon of filtered water

3/4 c maple syrup

1 cup real juiced lemons

2 cups of strawberries (stems on) 

Tossed it all in my #Vitamix and done. (Add ice and less water and make this a kid slushy. Or adult slushy ๐Ÿ˜ (These is a great mixture to put into freezer pops too๐Ÿ˜Ž!)

  

Grilled Apples with Nut Butter and more nuts

  
I JUST- can’t NOT post these TONIGHT. 

I made them for dessert tonight and they are ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ …incredible. Super clean treat full of protein and goodness, takes less than 5 MINUTES to make! Pull out your Forman grill or fire up the outside one for just a few. ——————————————–๐ŸŽ 

I thickly sliced 2 apples 

Grill them to just slightly soft (or however you like them)

Place them on a plate and drizzle Almond butter (or other nut butter), real maple syrup and sprinkle with chopped almonds and walnuts. 

To make them more decadent add unsweetened coconut, dark chocolate chips, and hemp hearts. I already want more. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ 

  

Roasted Broccoli – GAME CHANGER for this veggie!ย 

  
Oven roasting broccoli is game changer for this veggie- I PROMISE! You can:

 1. Food prep and roast this ahead of time and store in a Mason jar to:

2. Add to a skillet meal throughout the week or just add to some coconut oil to reheat in a pan and…

3. Make meals in a jar with it! YES. Nom Nom 

My kids (yes KIDS) ate TWO whole frozen bags of this tonight. #really ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ Shake and coat with a couple tsp of olive oil. Sprinkle on some salt and pepper. Roast at 400 for 25-35 minutes! That’s IT. Do it. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ 

Good Morning Smoothie!ย 

  
It’s a “Good Morning Smoothie” here in NC! I added to my Vitamix: 

1 Cup Coconut water 

Half Orange (or one Clementine)

Quarter Apple๐Ÿ

Wedge Pineapple๐Ÿ

2 cups of Spinach

1 cup of Kale (or for those that follow me “ONE gReeN ice cube ;)”

4 Pitted Dates

1 tbsp organic coconut oil 

1 tbsp chia seed

1 tbsp hemp hearts

Sliver of organic lemon๐Ÿ‹

2 Cups Ice 

(for those in our MetamorphU coaching program, balance this smoothie with TWO tbsp of our “Smoothie booster.” )

*Healthy eating tip: Fruit is GOOD for you. It’s best to balance the glycemic index and load of fruit in a smoothie by adding a fat and protein (in this case–>coconut oil, chia and hemp) ๐Ÿ˜˜

Fresh Heirloom Pico

  
Fresh Heirloom Pico: ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ

 2-3 pints heirloom cherry tomatoes

1/2 onion 

1-2 jalapeรฑo peppers (I remove the seeds, depends on how spicy u like it ๐Ÿ˜œ—-also make a kid friendly version without the jalapeรฑos) 

Handful of fresh cilantro

2 juiced limes 

1-2 tsp of sea salt 

Pepper
Combine all in a food processor and store in a Mason jar in the refrigerator. *Awesome* weekly food prep item that is made in less than 3 minutes. You will want more and it’s great with white or black bean chips and on many dishes such as salmon, chicken, and Mexican combos (quinoa, beans and peppers- yum!)

Always keep fresh pico in a mason jar to preserve the freshness and add to dishes through the week to season them up with fresh goodness. ๐ŸŒฑ
