  1. I'm excited to try both of them. I've been making a smoothie with truvani vanilla protein powder, strawberries, spinach, organic apple juice, and orange juice. It's pretty good, but I'd be happier not use protein powder. Your salad looks delish, too! I just roasted carrots, Brussel sprouts, asparagus, and onions

  2. I'm so ready for this spring salad…but, heck i'mma give them both a try..πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ all in "1" magical day of spring πŸŒΌπŸ€πŸ₯. Keep putting them out and I'm going to have arsenal of dishes for my everyday life as I live it out..Thank you thank you..πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ‘ŒπŸΎπŸ˜˜

  3. Nut butters in smoothies actually slow down blood circulation. That's not advisable in the morning. I love to soak brown rice overnight so it cooks faster on the next day, it saves energy and it's a way to wash out any traces of unwanted substances from the rice. I love the colours of the veggies you baked!

  4. I've been looking for a way to use up the way too many frozen blueberries I have AND my teen has been asking me to make him some protein-heavy smoothies, now that the weather is warm. But I'm also excited about your other recipe – can I skip or sub something else for the miso paste? I'm out.

  5. Lol, I’m watching this while hungry…now I know that I’ll be disappointed with whatever is in my fridge at the moment. Oh well! Both of these sound amazing! I’m definitely gonna try the salad/grain bowl first, but probably w quinoa (bc that’s my current grain obsession). Well, time to make lunch, aka, throw some tofu in a skillet & hope for the best. #onepannoplan ❀️ thanks for the inspiration! Needed that today.

  6. I’ve got some carrots that I wasn’t sure what to do with. Now I know! It’s still a little cold here in the mornings, but I think I’ll try that smoothie after an afternoon run! I love blueberries so much. And the house we moved into last fall has blueberry bushes, so this summer I can harvest my own!
