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.

ZUCCHINI NOODLES WITH AVOCADO CREAM



When I want something light but satisfying for supper I'll make zucchini noodles or "zoodles"! They're fun to eat and you can have them raw with a sauce or cook them...they are great either way. 

Here I'm having them raw with a creamy, garlic-y, avocado sauce that adds some richness and allot of flavor.

To make the noodles a Spirilizer is really handy to have but if you don't have one you can still make this dish. Before I got mine I used to just use a vegetable peeler and take long strips off of the zucchini which gave me long flat linguine style noodles instead of spaghetti style.
