Eating healthy sometimes comes with an expensive, time-consuming, and un-appetizing stigma. These three "ready when you are" meals are here to prove that healthy can be prepared quickly and without breaking the bank. The Vegan Protein Power Smoothie Kids Will Love This simple recipe packs a punch. To enjoy; add two frozen ripe bananas and one mango to your blender. Measure out 2 tbsp each of flax seeds and chia seeds, and add to the blender. Next, layer in 2 cups of kale, ¼ cup of almonds, and 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk. Now you are ready to blend 40 grams of vegan protein to kick-start your day! If you are feeling ambitious, try adding a cup of blueberries or raspberries for extra tartness. Blueberry Breakfast Quinoa With A Dash Of Lemon This mouthwatering, affordable, and easy-to-make dish gives any cold morning a fresh start! Start by bringing two cups of nonfat milk to a warm low temperature in a saucepan for approximately 3 minutes. While you are doing this, rinse 1 cup of quinoa under cold water until the water is clear. When the milk is ready, add the quinoa along with a pinch of salt and stir. For about 20 minutes let it simmer and purge the remaining liquid. Once completed, remove the pan from the heat and add 3 tbsp of maple syrup and ½ of a lemon, zested. Finally, fold in your cup of blueberries and dive in! A Health Twist On A Classic BLT-Less Bread More Flavor BLT's are delicious. Crispy lettuce, juicy tomato slices, and bacon you will be thinking about until dinner. However, this option will be far more exciting and even healthier. First, upgrade from plain white bread to a whole grain option. Packed with nutrients, the added flavor will already be a step up from the original. You only need one piece toasted, as this is an open-faced sandwich. The fun here is in the additional ingredients. We would not want to take away from what makes a BLT a BLT, we only want to enhance it. Before adding your traditional toppings, smother on some roasted red pepper hummus and slice up some avocado and cucumber for that extra kick.
