VIDEO SHOW NOTES

Eat these meals during the day to create a full day’s worth of g-bombs and nutrients. Everything you need to feel full,  Get those nutrients in and maybe even lose weight if you like.  This is how I eat when I want to lose weight. Sometimes I’m even a little too full to finish all of it – so you’ll just find what’s right for you.

 

BREAKFAST – SUNRISE SMOOTHIE

The sunrise smoothie breakfast we’re starting off with a smoothie that’s going to remind you of a sunrise over the ocean. Start by stuffing in all the greens as usual –  we even get to hide a little cooked mushroom in this smoothie but I promise you can’t even taste it. It’s great for all you mushroom haters out there and all you need is just one little white button mushroom per day to get those awesome anti-cancer benefits. Fresh ginger turmeric and black pepper are optional but we add them for the anti-inflammatory benefits and a nice little kick. In  goes some raw beets, fruits ,a ground flaxseed ice and water. Buzz all of it together and voila a gorgeous sunrise smoothie to start your day. This makes plenty so you can save a little bit of this for your dinner as well.

 

LUNCH – GREEN GODDESS SALAD

Lunch is a green goddess salad. We have a romaine lettuce and spring lettuce mix and some slaw mix for the base. You can choose whatever kind of a base that you like. Some sweet onion slices go in and then chop chop chop chop chop.  We heat this up in our two quart bowl and start topping with more greens (of course) – some cold steamed broccoli, green split peas and then some blueberries for some contrast of flavor. Add some broccoli sprouts and you can mix this up however you like – warm things up, leave them cold, whatever you like. Sprinkle a bit of Trader Joe’s 21 salute no salt seasoning to pump up the flavor or you can add in Mrs Dash – whatever flavoring you like. A simple dressing of tahini lime juice and water to thin it down. Drizzle it over the top and that rounds out our lunch. Now these salads can be huge so only eat what you need to help you feel satisfied for about three to five hours until your next meal. We’re looking for comfortable hunger when it’s dinner time when it’s time to eat next – so that’s how much you should eat at lunch. You know if you’re getting way too hungry, way too early – then you need a bigger salad at lunch.

 

DINNER – CAULIFLOWER BITES

Dinner is simple and it has a few options too. We made cauliflower bites in the air fryer, but you can make them in an oven too if you like or the recipe gives you the option of not baking them at all – so not browning them and just simply steaming them. You can even water saute them and add your flavoring afterwards – it’s totally up to you. You get to choose how you want to make these depending on how closely you want to follow Eat to Live guidelines. They’re all super simple and tasty ways to make these.

So we start with fresh cauliflower, cut them into bite-sized pieces – little florets add some homemade hummus. Use your favorite recipe or find this recipe in the cheat sheets from a while back and then some mustard and Mrs Dash no-salt seasoning is going to add some yumminess. So give the cauliflower a good roll around in the mixture and spread it out in the air fryer basket or on your pan or whatever. Then we’re gonna lightly air fry them and they’re ready to enjoy. If you were steaming them just put that sauce right over top when they’re done.  Fresh parsley and tomato chunks make a nice accompaniment but feel free to add whatever else you like. Enjoy the leftover Sunrise Smoothie after the cauliflower, if you want for a satisfying high nutrient low calorie ending to your day.
