Healthy Recipes

The past week, we have been eating lots of fruits and vegetables back into our diet. Honestly, I haven't dropped a pound, but my husband is looking great! He is losing weight like crazy and his stomach is getting flat, it's really aggravating! I'm staying the same. So I have this really great smoothie recipe for you to try, if you like smoothies. It has lots of healthy ingredients, it's easy and anyone can make it!



The best part, it's DELICIOUS and it keeps you FULL! Both things I struggle with.

Ingredients:

- Handful of Kale
- 1 cup of Sugar Free Apple Juice
- 1/4 Cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk
-Full Bananna
- 1Cup of Blue Berries (Frozen are fine)
- 1 Cup of Strawberries (Frozen are Fine)

Blend Away! You'll have a great smoothie!!


Another reciepe that I have been eating by the handfuls is Broccoli and I'm not a huge fan, but this vegetable bake in the oven is absolutely delicious! This Garlic Roasted Broccoli is to die for!! 



Ingredients:
Head of Broccoli, cut into florets
3 tbsp Olive Oil
5 cloves of garlic, but we used garlic seasoning because we had it on hand.
1tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1tsp lemon juice


Directions: 
1) preheat the oven to 400°F.
2) In a bowl, mix broccoli with olive oil salt black pepper and garlic salt. Spread the broccoli onto a baking sheet.
3) Bake broccoli until tender for about 15 minutes and then turn halfway through the baking process. 
4) After baking, squeeze the lemon juice over the Broccoli before serving. It is the best part and adds so much flavor. 

Q: What changes are you making towards a healthier diet in 2015? Any suggestions on reciepes you love?
