Lucky Green Food!

Have fun tomorrow with some great "green" options!

Green Eggs! (the Healthy Way!)

Shown here with yummy (gluten free!) Sunflower Millet Bread

1 Handful of Spinach
1 or 2 Light Laughing Cow Cheese Wedges
1/4 C milk of choice

Blend in food processor or blended until smooth. 
In a separate bowl mix:
 4 eggs (I prefer free range organic), the spinach mixture, 1 tsp Italian Seasoning, 
and salt and pepper to taste. 

Scramble over med- high heat.

Parmesan or cheddar cheese for garnish. (optional)

Lemon Broccoli Pesto

Large Head of Broccoli and Stems roughly chopped 
(or two small heads) (reserve some for topping pasta)
1 C Sunflower Seeds (soaked for an hour if possible)
1/4 C Pine Nuts
Large Handful of Fresh Parsley or Basil
1/2 Lemon, Juice and Zest
1 Large Clove Garlic
Small Handful of Parmesan Cheese (optional - put how much you want!)
1-2 tsp Sea Salt (to taste)

Put all ingredients in food processor, and blend until combined.

While in processor, drizzle in 2 Tbl Milk, 1 Tbl Olive Oil, and about 1/4 C water. Watch it closely until you get the consistency you want.

Mix with Whole Wheat Pasta and top with Some Broccoli And optional Parmesan Cheese and/or Pine Nuts.

I mixed my pesto with Zunchinni Noodles, made with a sprilalizer. YUM!

Diary Free Mint Chocolate Chip Ice cream!

2 Frozen Bananas (make sure to slice before freezing)

3/4 C Coconut Milk or Almond Milk (frozen in ice cube trays)
1/4 tsp Mint Exctract
Couple Drops of Green Food Coloring
handful cacao nibs
2 Dates - soaked for 1/2 hour
1/8 tsp stevia or Agave or Honey - whatever sweetener you prefer
1/4 C Dark Chocolate/Mint Chips - or just chocolate chips

Put Bananas and milk cubes in microwave for about 30 seconds. Puree in processor until smooth consistency. Add the rest of ingredients and puree until smooth. Sprinkle with some mini chocolate chips or sprinkles if you like. :)
