CHUNKY GAZPACHO & POTATO WEDGES



Potato wedges are my favorite way to eat spuds! They are extremely satisfying and filling and of course they compliment most dishes. For this meal I had leftover Gazpacho so I paired it with some golden wedges for a delicious supper.

POTATOES are nutritious and delicious! They are high in potassium, vitamin B6, copper, vitamin C, phosphorus, manganese, fiber, vitamin B3 and pantothenic acid. Potatoes are easy to digest, have anti inflammatory properties and because of their high potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc content they are beneficial for good skin health.

STRAWBERRY BANANA SMOOTHIE BOWL

Smoothie bowls have quickly become a morning staple for me! They are such a great way to get a variety of nutrients in one simple blend. I especially love how quick and effortless they are...and filling!

I've been finding some really nice, beautifully ripe strawberries at the grocery store lately so I really wanted to use them in a smoothie bowl. I topped this luscious pink blend with some sliced kiwi, shredded unsweetened coconut, chia seeds and cacao nibs for a little crunch.

SPIRULINA CHIA SEED PUDDING

Chia seeds are a staple in my kitchen. I throw them on salads, oatmeal, in smoothies and make a super simple and delicious pudding with them. Chia pudding is such a versatile dish. You can eat it with fruit, nuts, seeds, top it with granola, coconut yogurt or layer it "parfait style" with berries or fruit purees just to name a few of it's endless possibilities.

For this recipe I topped it with a chia, hemp and buckwheat cereal, some fresh berries and added some Spirulina powder to the basic chia pudding recipe to get this beautiful turquoise color.
