Lately I’ve been on a kick using Trader Joe’s frozen beet chunks. I love adding beets to my smoothies and this makes it soo much easier. This berry beet smoothie bowl has been my freaking jam lately. It is so delicious and creamy and tastes so refreshing.
Flying out for work this morning✈️ I have some hard boiled eggs packed with me for breakfast. I always come to the airport prepared with healthy foods to avoid spending a ton on unhealthy airport convenience food. Happy I brought breakfast but am missing my smoothie bowls, because who doesn’t love having something that tastes like dessert for breakfast?! Will be dreaming about this spirulina cacao smoothie bowl during my flight. I love spirulina for a healthy boost of nutrients plus it’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
I have some variation of this blueberry smoothie almost every morning. I do this for several reasons. One, it is delicious! Two, it keeps me full for hours. And three, it is super easy to have these ingredients on hand, which is especially important for me because I travel all of the time. I always like to keep my freezer stocked with staples like frozen riced cauliflower and frozen berries. Since they are in the freezer, you don’t have to worry about them going bad so it is easy to keep them stocked to whip up a quick meal. I like doing this so that when I come home from travel, I don’t have to go out to get food or order ubereats, I have ingredients that I can use to make a great smoothie bowl! See recipe below for details.
Starting off Monday with my go-to smoothie! I post this smoothie ALOT on my Instagram @wellbymel_ and that’s because it’s so damn easy, delicious, and all of the ingredients are super easy to have on hand. This is key for me because I travel so often, I always keep certain staples in my freezer and pantry so I don’t need to run to the grocery store the second I get home or get food delivered. This smoothie is low sugar and full of healthy fats to keep you full longer. I love it because I literally won’t even think about food for hours after I have this smoothie which I need esp on busy days. Here’s the recipe:
Starting off Friday morning with this tart beet berry smoothie bowl on my couch in nyc. I’m obsessed with the color of this smoothie and the tart beet berry combo is one of my favs. Super excited to go see a functional medicine doctor for a routine visit (said no one ever, right?!) I think functional medicine is so interesting even tho I have zero medical background (I am an engineer by degree). I’ve been waiting for this visit for months so hopefully it’s worth the excitement. Happy Friday!
Happy Friday!! One of my favorite carrot turmeric smoothie bowls pictured here 🥕🥕🥕 Woke up early this morning and tried a Yoga Sculpt class and loved it! I don’t personally do yoga, but am trying to incorporate it into my weekly routine because I keep hearing of all its awesome benefits. I went to the studio this morning to sign up for class and they asked me if I wanted to do a regular vinyasa or a yoga sculpt (aka cardio + weights). I went for the yoga sculpt because that is so much more up my alley. I’m not sure what happened- we did burpees and squats and yoga and it was so much fun. I’ve never been to a yoga class like that and it put me in sucha good mood. Hope everyone’s Friday is off to a great start!
Mint chocolate chip smoothie bowl to start off Sunday! This literally tastes like I’m eating a bowl of ice cream and I’m obsessed with this combo 🙌🏻
Carrot cake smoothie bowl! I think this is my new favorite smoothie bowl. Had this for lunch today and I don’t even feel guilty about eating this “treat” because it’s primarily made of veggies, but still tastes sweet.
Back in NYC! 🤸🏻♀️
First move post red eye flight back is making a green smoothie bowl. After 3 weeks of straight travel, I’m so glad I came home to a freezer full of organic produce and my first move wasn’t running out to Whole Foods. This smoothie is mostly veggie based, but made with cacao powder and topped with cacao nibs to taste like a treat. I also topped it with sunflower butter vs. almond butter. I’ve been experimenting with sunflower butter this week and am a huge fan. Now have to run and get all of my errands complete and pack over the next couple of days before I fly out, this time for vacation! ✈️
