Two Favorite (& Simple) Recipes

Wednesday, November 4, 2015
In anticipation of the holidays and feeling the bloat from Halloween, I've been trying to be extra conscientious of the meals I make. I always make my breakfast at home and then bring it to work and I typically bring lunch about 50% of the time (whattup turkey rollups). These two recipes are both delicious and so easy to make. Plus they're super healthy. 
Roasted Buddha Bowl (recipe adapted from Glitter Guide)
1 cup frozen broccoli (I use Trader Joe's)
1/2 cup chickpeas (I use Trader Joe's organic garbanzo beans -- only 99 cents!)
1/2 cup brown rice (surprise, surprise...Trader Joe's frozen brown rice is what I use)
1 tbs. Trader Joe's Goddess Dessing
Calories = 295

1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place broccoli and chickpeas on a tray. Drizzle both with olive oil and S&P. 
2) Roast broccoli and chickpeas for 25-30 minutes. Shake up the tray half way through so nothing burns. 
3) Prepare your brown rice - if using the TJ's kind just microwave for 3 minutes.
 4) Make the bowl! Pour rice into a bowl and top with the broccoli and chickpeas. Drizzle the dressing over the bowl. Eat up!

Breakfast Smoothie Bowl
1/2 cup - 1 cup of frozen strawberries
1/2 cup - 1 cup of frozen blueberries
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tbs. almond butter
1/8 cup granola
1 tbs. shredded coconut
Calories = 318

1) Blend blueberries, strawberries, almond milk, and almond butter together until consistency is smooth.
2) Pour into a bowl and top with granola and coconut. 
*Only using 1/2 cup of almond milk and no water makes this smoothie thicker, hence the bowl! I like to eat my breakfast with a spoon not straw.

  1. I wanna make both of these! Perfect timing for me since I'm finally making a pact with myself to get back on our 300 | 400 | 400 | 200 cal snack ways. I just had a bowl of greek yogurt, granola, chia seeds, and honey NOM. Also getting back into warm water with lemon. Waiting for that to cool down and then it's gym time for me!
