The Perfect Pear, Granola & Peanut Butter Snack Plate

Pear granola peanut butter plate

Life is a bit hectic right now between work, moving, cooking, and dog-sitting SO I’ve done a poll and since the majority of my followers said they mostly scroll through the writing portion of posts and skip straight to the recipe (which I don’t blame you for, gotta get straight to the goods), I’ve decided to keep things short and sweet. Or at least for now, until life is no longer so hectic.

This pear snacking plate has been a major component of my hectic life for the past few weeks so I figured I’d share it with you so it can become a part of your busy, hectic, healthy lives too. Enjoy, my peeps.

Rootz Nutrition Paleo Protein Smoothie Bowl

rootz smoothie bowl 1

Okay you guys I used to have the hardest time when searching for a good protein powder. A lot of protein powders are just straight chemicals or seem good but then you read the ingredient label and you see some words that have like 40 letters in them and you’re just like huh? What exactly am I putting in my body?

Another common deterrent for me is when a protein powder has added sugars, contains dairy (like whey protein), or isn’t all natural. But then I came across Rootz Nutrition. I did some research on the company and basically it was founded by a guy who took up the Paleo diet, but quickly realized there were no pre or post workout supplements on the market that were Paleo-friendly. Since he was cross training daily, he wasn’t willing to give up that supplementation so he set off to create an all-natural, Paleo-friendly workout supplement.

And I am SO GLAD he did. I tried the pre and post workout supplements and not only did I hit several personal bests while lifting (and I usually don’t opt for a pre-workout supplement because I don’t like the jittery feeling it gives me, but no jitters after this guy, just straight natural energy), but both powders tasted DELICIOUS. Like, I cannot wait to have it again after my workout today. I’m motivating myself to lift hard again just so I can come home and make a protein smoothie bowl.

And just check out these ingredients. For the post-workout powder, it’s chocolate banana nut flavored and is made up of 4 different blends with some additional all-natural ingredients:

Protein Blend
Egg White Protein, Sacha Inchi Protein, Hemp Protein

Electrolyte Blend
Coconut, Banana

Superfood Blend
Chia Seeds, Flax Seeds, Maca Root, Bee Pollen, Acai, Goji Berries, Blueberries, Royal Jelly

Green Detox Blend
Spirulina, Chlorella, Kale, Spinach, Broccoli

Other Ingredients
Natural Chocolate Extract, Natural Vanilla Extract, Stevia Leaf, Cinnamon, Natural Sea Salt

IS THAT NOT AMAZING?! (And the ingredients are equally as amazing in the pre-workout too). So you’re loading up on crucial all-natural vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, AND protein! I definitely recommend. I’m a huge fan. And what I love about this smoothie bowl made using the post-workout protein powder is that it’s made with very basic ingredients so you get the full taste of the protein powder (which actually tastes GOOD). It’s not gummy or protein-tasting like other protein powders, it just tastes like chocolate banana nut. Exactly as advertised. So whether you’re looking to switch to a cleaner, nutrient-packed protein supplement or you don’t work out every day but think your body could use a little extra boost, I highly recommend Rootz!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie Bowl

PBandJ smoothie bowl 1

Growing up, I could not refuse a good ‘ole PB & J. How could anyone turn that down? It might be one of the greatest combos of all time. I’d vote for it. But since I don’t eat bread anymore, I have to get creative whenever I crave that beautiful combination.

Then I realized something. What is jelly other than a bunch of grapes? And granola could easily take the place of bread. And peanut butter? Well that just stays the same because you can’t mess with the best. So what could you make with all that, you ask?

ONE PRETTY DARN AMAZING SMOOTHIE BOWL!!!!

I don’t know if you guys have had frozen grapes before, but they’re literally candy. And add granola and peanut butter to them and you’ve got yourself an instant classic.

Anddddd, with Easter coming up that means lots of purple, pink, and yellow foods so what better thing to serve on Easter than a giant bowl of purple? It’s perfect. Forget candy, the Easter Bunny’s going healthy this year! But your kids won’t even know the difference because it tastes so freakin’ good.

Also, if you know of any other good PB & J alternatives please share in the comments, I’d love to try them!! Happy Easter everyone!

Nutrient Packed Eggs in a Pepper Breakfast Plate

eggs in a pepper breakfast plate

Breakfast is such a fun meal because there are so many delicious combinations to be made. I mean really, I could start another blog entirely dedicated to breakfast and it would be endless. This breakfast is one of my favorites because it’s so aesthetically pleasing. It’s great to serve if you have company over because it looks like you would have had to spend all morning in the kitchen preparing everything when really it just takes a few minutes to slice things up and then a couple more to cook it all! Easy squeezy.

Andddd, have you ever heard the someone say you should “eat the rainbow?” That’s important because with different colored foods comes different nutrients, so when you have a wide variety of colors in your diet you know you’re getting a wide variety of nutrients! So for example, in this breakfast you’ll get an orange veggie (sweet potato), some green food (kale and avocado), a red veggie (red bell pepper), plus eggs. So what does that mean nutrition-wise?

Orange foods: Vitamins A, and C as well as potassium
Green foods: Vitamins B, C, E, and K, calcium, potassium, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids
Red foods: Vitamins A and C as well as magnesium
Eggs: Vitamins A, D, and E, folate, iron, zinc, choline, and protein
So as far as eating the rainbow goes, you’ve got more than half of the colors you want in just one meal with this guy AND it’s delish. And easy. And just amazing. So whether you’re making a quick brekkie for yourself or you’re making a colorful feast, give this guy a try and it will soon became one of your breakfast staples.
