I only ever plan for 3 days because I expect my calendar to implode I stick to smoothie ingredients, salad ingredients and a few proteins to throw on top (salmon salad & hard boiled eggs this week) and ONLY three dinners.
This week we are making tacos , a big chicken salad using my lemon chicken recipe from the book and grass fed streaks from my @butcher_box with kabucha squash and these organic baby Brussels.
washed and chopped into my @oxo containers, including cutting the ends of each of these lil guys.
whipped up salmon salad with @primalkitchenfoods mayo and @wildplanetfoods sockeye salmon
shake up a tahini dressing:
1 cup water
1/2 cup tahini
Juice of one small
1 tbsp of garlic powder
1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
Salt to taste - if you like it thinner add more
I did it all waiting for my pasture raised to be ready for brunch, the extras will probably end up on that chicken salad #easybreezy@pedersonsfarms
Just finished up speaking at today's @doyennedinners (or brunch in this case). Doyenne is a group that invites Doyenne's (Women at the TOP of their field) to collaborate, create and share. I was beyond honored to speak to a room of powerhouses.... Actors, Music Executives, Lawyers, Writers and Entrepreneurs. Each individually successfully but as a group....unstoppable! .....and I curated the menu. #bwbkfab4#fab4meal
This was loaded with ribboned veggies greens perfectly cooked shredded chicken and Serrano for ..... it paired great with the cool spa smoothie.
Looking to use something other than nut milk in your smoothie? Check out @8greens! I developed a recipe for my friend Dawn's company (she is a cancer survivor, ex model, female entrepreneur and English Aristocrat...nbd) The recipe is featured in @voguemagazine use the code 8GV to snag this swap.
My favorite wall was captured during an intimate interview with @fameandpartners. I wore their clothes, made them smoothies and told them all about how Chris painted me the for my 25th birthday. Use the code FAME to get the deets. #dreamcatcher#halfmyheart
My favorite tip for salad dressing? I keep all my homemade dressings in a mason jar with a blender ball.
Zero mess. Plus, when the olive oil gets hard you can pull it out of the fridge, shake it and it returns to room temp faster.
I also did 3 things in under 20 minutes yesterday that made today awesome and easy.
I made a bulk of my #cobbsnob salad dressing from my #bodylovebook
I hard boiled 8 and baked pasture raised bacon
washed and chopped my veggies! I keep them in @oxo greensaver baskets #notsponsored
My was ready in under a minute. Literally.
Are you into yogurt? Noah from @thecoconutcult hooked me up with some coconut yogurt this weekend at #mbgrevitalize .... which inspired me to share my favorite ways to make a yogurt #bwbkfab4 I mixing in a serving of collagen protein (vanilla or plain flavor), adding a tbsp or two of fiber (flax, chia or acacia) and topping it with nuts, seeds or even better stirring in a tbsp of nut butter!! (Almond butter and coconut yogurt is basically coconut cream pie!) I keep the fruit to 1/4 cup and low glycemic. I normally avoid granola because even the "healthy" granola uses a sugar and I just refuse to start my day that way most of the time. #talkaboutcravings
I am not going to get to it now but sugar is sugar..... honey, maple whatever...... it biologically breaks down to the same monosaccharides and the hormone cascade is the same ....if I want sugar I will eat it....but, I am not going to be that girl who makes nutrition claims like "yah, I get my magnesium and calcium from " ♀️
Sweet Factory Kyoto Sun dried fruit added sugar or sulfites.....the OMGEEEE #sogood
Dried fruit is REALLY sweet naturally and something I use with clients who candy. Golden berries work wonders for sour candy addicts. It's a great replacement when heading to the or with kiddos. But, it is very high in sugar and because its dried and the content is gone we can easily eat way more (also dopamine and sugar = no OFF button) so be aware and only buy a serving size or split up a bag.
Oh and don't be that who only drinks "no sulfite added " but downs a bag of dried mango♀️without checking the bag....Dried fruits are among the foods highest in sulfites, with raisins and prunes containing between 500 and 2,000 parts per million. By comparison, wine -- a food thought by many to be high in sulfites -- contains between 20 and 350 parts per million.
For dried fruit ....... it's best to find a natural source/make it yourself with lemon juice and if you're buying it in the store for the ingredient "sulfur dioxide". If it's made the ingredient list there is over 10 ppm intentionally added.
Sulfites are used as a food preservative or enhancer. They may come in various forms, such as:
•Sulfur dioxide, which is not a sulfite, but a closely related chemical oxide
•Potassium bisulfite or potassium metabisulfite
•Sodium bisulfite, sodium metabisulfite or sodium sulfite
We had our first Sukiyaki experience in Kyoto last night and it was delicious! Thinly sliced beef, rice noodles and veggies are sautéed at your table and then you dip it into golden yolks. (Arigato @jessicaalba for the recc.) Expect a #bewellbykelly recipe for this specialty when I am stateside. #yum
It's hard to watch the news when we are so far away.....but the resilience, community and strength of Houston is so evident. I am proud to be an American and praying for the families affected by this tragedy. #huricaneharvey#prayforhouston
