Homemade hemp milk


image

Hello,

I am so excited I finally found a homemade hemp milk recipe to try.

As I said before I can have any dairy for now but slowly my nutritionist will add some of it back in a couple months. When I first quit dairy I started drink almond drink instead and I found out I am intolerante to almonds too. My doctor told me to try hemp milk and I hated it maybe for one week after that I felt in love with hemp.

Hemp milk is very expensive I pay around $5 per box that

I drink in a week and half. This recipe I made the same amount is in the box for around $2 and is way healthier and better taste.

The recipe I found on the detoxinista website.

Recipe;

4 cups filtered water
1/2 cup hemp hearts
4 Medjool dates

Eggs pancake for lunch


 

image

Hello,


Trying to figure out how to make my lunch for tomorrow. After open my fridge and found out I only have 4 eggs and some veggies, sweet potatoes and lettuce.

I don’t like eggs to much I do like egg white but yolk I hate specially the smell. So every time I need eat the whole egg I need try create some good that takes a bit of the smell away.

I made a pancake with two whole eggs and I bit of water. And on the side I cooked the tomato with onions, leek, corn with salt, pepper and olive oil.

The pancake is ready. Well, some people may call it a omelette but I like call it pancake. I added some lettuce and half sweet potato.  I didn’t taste the yolk to much so it was a success lunch.

 

PORTUGUES:

Abri a geladeira pra ver o que ia fazer para meu almoco de amanha. E so achei 4 ovos, alguns legumes, salada e batata doce. Nao gosto da gema do ovo so gosto de comer a clara mas minha nutricionista quer que eu coma a gema tambem. Entao sempre tento fazer algo que seja bem saboroso com ovos porque dai nao sinto o gosto ou cheiro da gema.

Fiz uma panqueca ou omelete com dois ovos e um pouco de agua. E separadamente cozinhei cebola, alho poro, um tomate, milho, sal e pimenta. Fiz uma panqueca com os legumes no meio. Esse foi meu almoco com meia batata doce e uma salada. Nem senti o gosto da gema do ovo.🙂

Spaghetti Squash


images

Hello,

I am very excited to tell you that I tried spaghetti squash for the first time ever. I feel stupid saying it but I will say…I have a lot of fun making it. I yelled at my husband to run to the kitchen and see how magic it was. He did’nt seem impressed but I was. I made him touch it and tried make it himself for a bit to see how cool it was.

I just cut it in half and boiled for 20 minutes. Scooped out the seeds with a spoon and started using the fork pulling out the spaghetti. DSC_0308

 

The whole squash yielded enough for 4 of my meals and other half I gave for my husband’s lunch tomorrow.

I added some of my homemade tomato sauce on top of it. All what I can say is my belly and my face are both very happy.

Macarrão de vegetais


DSC_0310

 

Como fazer pasta com vegetais?
Essa semana meu amigo me contou que encontrou essa maquininha na loja por 14,99 que fazia massa fininha com vegetais. Nao me conti e tive que correr comprar uma para mim. A maquininha e simples voce so precisa fazer movimentos circulares com os vegetais e a maquina corta tudinho na forma de macarrão.

DSC_0287

Eu usei abobrinha, cenoura e abobrinha amarela. Eu fiz macarao com todos eles e tambem fiz um molho de tomate pra por encima acompanhado de frango grelhado ficou uma delicia.

DSC_0299
A melhor coisa de todas e que tem gosto de macarrão mas sao vegetais bem mais saudavel e leve que macarrão.  Se voce nao tem a maquininha voce ainda pode fazer esse macarao saudavel usando um descascador de batata ou cortando em pedacos pequeninhos com uma faca.

 

DSC_0303Voce também pode usar no pepino  pra fazer saladas. Fica uma delicia e voce não precisa se sentir culpado por comer pasta porque essa aqui e  saudável.

Veggies noodles


DSC_0310

 

 

Hello,
My friend told me about this little tool he got at Bartells for 14,99 that makes veggies noodles. I got very excited about and ran to the store to buy one for myself. It is very easy to use i just put zucchini and yellow squash inside twist around and voila it makes delicious noodles.

DSC_0287

I tried with carrots also and worked great. I made the veggies noodles and some homemade tomato sauce with some grilled chicken and lunch was ready.

DSC_0291
Amazing thing about it is that taste almost like noodles but it isn’t and also is very healthy. If you don’t have it and still wants to have veggies noodle you can use a potato peel thing. I used before. Or cut into little pieces.

You can also use it on cucumber to make salads. Yummy and healthy. Eat pasta without feeling guilty.

Home workout


IMG_4305

Hello,

Around almost four years ago I started to work out at home. Slowly I started to buy equipments so I didn’t have to go to the gym because I could not afford it. Some people said they don’t get in shape because they can’t afford a gym but that is jump one more excuse. I lost 20 pounds by working out at home just with body weight exercises and healthy food. But a year ago I got mostly of that weight back because I was suffering from food allergy and intolerances. I had to started to see a nutritionist that found my food intolerances and plans all my meals and supplements. I  lost 12 of pounds and have around 10 or less to go. Here is a little bit about how I started my home workout some years ago.

 I first got dumbbells:

DSC_0279

 

I still remember that I paid $20 dollars for it. (Sorry, but my dog would not take his cute face away from my dumbbells.) I felt like adding dumbbells to my body weight exercises improve a lot but after some months it become to easy again. So I purchased the most exciting thing I have. My 40 pounds sandbag:

DSC_0275

I just love this sandbag, I can do lower and upper body exercises and also use on my abs exercises. Months later, it was xmas and guess what was on my list? Dip station. My husband gave them to me and I also love this one. My dip station and my swiss ball are kept by my bed.

DSC_0284

 

I also have this ones:

Four month ago I finally got a membership in a local gym and I am loving it. I go to gym Monday 5 days a week. Rest on Sunday and workout at home with my equipments on Fridays.

Here is my workout for today:

Repeat 3 times:

Sandbag squat: 15 reps

side leg lift on dip station: 15 reps

Push up: 15 reps

Repeat 3 times:

Dumbbells lunges with shoulder press: 10 per leg

Sit ups: 15 reps

High knees: 20 reps

Repeat 3 times:

Triceps dip using a chair: 15 reps

knee tuck: 20 reps

Super man: 20 reps

Repeat 3 times:

side plank lifts: 10 per side

Jump lunges with kicks: 20 reps

Mountain climbers: 30 reps

Took me 20 minutes to complete it.

I am working out really hard because I really need my six packs back. This picture is from today 10 more pounds to go. I am almost there. It is being really hard. I take pictures of my belly every week because it keeps me motivated. What do you do to keep yourself motivated?

 

Arroz de couve-flor


Couve-flor tem tanto a oferecer para sua saúde.  Ele ajuda a preventer cancer, melhora o funcionamento do cérebro e coracao, ajuda na detoxificacao.  E um antioxidante e anti inflamatorio. Tambem contem bastante vitamina C que te ajuda a se manter saudavel.

Algumas pessoas não gostam de comer couve-flor porque eles não sabem como preparar isso or porque comeram antes em uma receita mal feita. Couve-flor pode ser usado com pasta de grão de bico como um aperitivo em festa, ou pode ser asado com cominho ou ainda feito um pure pra acompanhar carne no lugar da batata.

Eu uso couve-flor pra fazer pizza, tortilhas, maionese e arroz. SIM, arroz.

Essa e a receita que fiz ontem a noite. Primeiro coloquei um cabeça de couve-flor cortada em pedaços menores dentro do processador.

DSC_0222

 

Pulse um pouco ate que o couve fique no formato de arroz.

DSC_0230

 

Deixe de lado. Agora e hora de preparar os vegetais, legumes e/ou carne que voce queira adicionar a receita. Um pouquinho de azeite de oliva, alho, cebola e alho poro. Refoge um pouco.

DSC_0232

Depois disso adicione seus vegetais e legumes ou carne. Pode usar qualquer um. Tomate, pimentão, nabo, abobrinha, etc…Eu usei cenoura roxa, milho, vagem e ervilhas.

 

DSC_0238

 

Refoge mais ate que eles estejam macios. Coloque sal e pimenta eu também coloquei gergelim e um pouco de molho de soja gluten free.

 

DSC_0244

 

Por ultimo, adicione o couve-flor e cozinhe so um pouquinho o ideal e so refogar um minuto porque ai fica na textura de arroz.

 

DSC_0248

Prontinho seu arroz. Agora e so preparar a carne ou outra proteína e sua refeição saudável esta prontinha. Pode se servir mais de uma vez porque esse e melhor que arroz e bem mais light.

Cauliflower rice


Cauliflower has some much to offer for your health. It does helps fight cancer, boost you brain and heart health, detoxification support, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Provides you lots of vitamin C that helps keep you healthier.

Some people don’t eat cauliflower because they don’t know what to make with it. Or because they tried a boring recipe before and they think it taste always bad but it doesn’t. Cauliflower can be use as an appetizing with hummus or other dip. It also can be baked with some cumin and will taste amazing or mashed instead of potatoes for a mashed cauliflower recipe. I make pizza, tortilla, “potato” salad and now rice with cauliflower. YES, rice.

Last night I was feeling like having some rice so here is my recipe for it:

First, I chopped the whole cauliflower head into pieces and added in the food processor. Just pulsed a bit till it looks like a rice shape.

DSC_0222

 

DSC_0230

After that, set aside the cauliflower and start to prepare the veggies. Add some olive oil to a pan and some leek, onion and garlic. Cook for a little bit.

DSC_0232

 

Add also all the veggies you want to your rice can be anything. Corn, peas, carrots, zucchini, peppers etc. You can add ground meat as well I made with ground turkey/chicken before.

This one I use peas, corn, purple carrots and frozen green beans.

 

DSC_0238

 

Cook till veggies are soft. Then add salt, pepper, sesame seeds and if you like soy sauce. I put gluten free tamari instead because I can’t have gluten.

DSC_0244

 

Last thing you need to do is add all the cauliflower “rice” to it. Just cook for a little bit. And its all done.

 

DSC_0248

Serve with some kind of protein and you have a perfect healthy meal. Enjoy your rice.
