Chocolate Pear Spinach Blueberry Immune Boost Smoothie – My New Favorite!

A Complete Breakfast

Since making my major lifestyle change a year ago, green smoothies have been my breakfast of choice. They allow me to have a complete, well-rounded meal that is quick, low glycimic and can even be portable.  My Blendtec blender , which I love because of its smoothie button and Wildside jar that chops up anything and everything I put in it. When I travel I always take my Magic Bullet along because I really can’t imagine a day without a smoothie. Another note is that I do own another blender which seems to work well too if you are looking to move up from the Magic Bullet and can’t afford a high-speed blender. My second home is equipped with a Kitchenaid blender now, I just couldn’t take making smoothies for two in the bullet anymore, and it is the one used for the pictures in this recipe. But if you are looking for a Blendtec or Vitamix be sure and check Costco’s site (Canada or USA), they have the best prices and they do go on sale.

Do I ever get bored with smoothies? Never!

People are always asking me for recipes and I can honestly say that I don’t really use them. I keep my freezer stocked with a variety of fruits and berries including strawberries, blueberries, cranberries, pineapple, mangos etc. I try not eat the same thing two days in a row. The same goes for greens, I will usually have three or more smoothieable greens in my fridge including things like spinach, romaine lettuce, spring mix greens, zucchini and cucumbers being my most common greens. It is also nice to have fresh fruit on hand like pears (I like Bosc the best), bananas, pineapple, melons etc.  The thing is you need to choose fruits that you like and build from there. The most important part of the smoothie, and what makes it a complete meal is the protein.

The most complete protein is whey but in my case it is not an option because my system doesn’t tolerate it since I have a dairy intolerance. Whey will make the fluffiest smoothie by far. There are also soy, hemp and rice proteins. My system does best with rice proteins and my doctor likes me to use Metagenics UltraMeal 360 Plus products because of the low glycemic index, plant sterols and other nutrients it contains but I also use Sunwarrior rice protein as well since it comes in plain and it takes less of it to make a serving, therefore it is more cost-effective. No matter which you choose make sure you have a couple of flavors (Chocolate and Vanilla at least) so you can mix it up with them too. Look for clean products preferably made from non-GMO sourced proteins.

Tips and Tricks: Blender vs. Magic Bullet

When it comes to building your smoothie there is a difference between building it in a traditional blender whether it is a Blendtec, Vitamix or any other blender with the blade on the bottom and in a Magic Bullet. In the Magic Bullet you build it backwards since you will be turning the cup upside down to put it on the blender, so you build the smoothie backwards. What do I mean? I have found that the best way to build a smoothie so that it always blends well is to start with the softest fruits and work to the hardest being at the top. For instance in the case of the smoothie we are making today, the pear is the softest, next is the spinach and last is the frozen fruit, which in this case is the blueberries. But if you are building it in a Magic Bullet cup add the blueberries first and reverse the order of the ingredients.

The other thing is that of course you won’t get as much in the cup as you will in full size blender so you need to cut the quantities down to 1/3 for a regular cup or maybe 1/2 if you have the big Magic Bullet cups.

No matter which type of blender you use the most important tip I can give you is to blend all the fruit and vegetables first until they are smooth before adding your protein powder. This is critical if you use whey protein because if you add it with everything else it will grow to be bigger than the blender since it fluffs up so much. The other reason is to not over process the protein. Over processing can cause a breakdown of the delicate amino acids they contain which are the powerhouse of your protein, and the reason it is added in the first place.

Another note is that if you find that smoothies make you feel too cold, have a cup of tea along with it. There are lots of antioxidants in tea and it will help keep your body temperature up. It’s also another opportunity to get in a few more immune boosters.

My New Favorite Smoothie!

Now that I said I don’t use recipes to make smoothies I’m going to share one of my favorite combinations. If you are looking for lots recipes check my green smoothie category, I have listed some great sites there that offer up some really good recipes too.

I first made this when my husband was coming down with a cold and I wanted to boost his immune system up a notch so I added lemon, honey and ginger to the mix and lo and behold it made one awesome smoothie. Now I make it once or twice a week because it is made of things I almost always have on hand.

It also works great with apple instead of pear and the spinach could be changed to be baby romaine or even zucchini without changing the taste very much but this is my favorite combo. Also, if you don’t have chocolate protein powder you could also add cocoa or cacoa powder or even carob to get that chocolate taste but you may want to add a bit more honey since these will boost the bitter taste up a bit.

Sweet Potato Latkes Recipe

Being of Acadian decent, potatoes were a staple in my diet for most of my life. Recently they came up as reactive on my food panel testing and I had to remove them from my diet. It felt like the end of the world.

One of my favorite side dishes growing up was potato pancakes and while perusing my cookbooks I found they were somewhat similar to the Jewish recipe for Latkes. Latkes too are usually made from potato but grated courser than the version from my french Acadian culture. Most of the potato-less recipes however are made from cauliflower which I really didn’t find appealing or satisfying, so I decided to do an experiment. The best part was that it not only worked, they tasted amazing!

You will notice I haven’t included a picture yet ( I will later), that’s because they took longer than I expected to cook and the rest of my dinner was waiting so when the first batch was ready we immediately ate them. I did have enough for a second batch and tried frying them with less oil, and as the note at the bottom of the recipe indicates, they didn’t look as nice. Tasty, but not as attractive, hence no picture.

The recipe calls for sweet potato and not yam. Confused as to the difference? Don’t feel bad, so was I for quite some time since even the grocery store mislabels them. Yams are orange inside and sweet potatoes are light yellow. Both are very good for you but they do taste different.

Yam vs. Sweet Potato side by side

Sweet Potato Latkes

by Dawn Valcourt, www.healthynewdawn.com December 2012

– A great substitute for hashbrowns with breakfast! Try them fried or baked!!

Sweet Potato Latkes - Pan Fried (background and left inset) and Baked (right inset)

Sweet Potato Latkes – Pan Fried (background and left inset) and Baked (right inset)

Ingredients:

2 cups grated sweet potato (not yam)

1 cup grated zucchini ( skin too)

½ cup chopped green onion including white ends

Salt and pepper to taste

1 egg beaten

Refined (expeller pressed) coconut oil

Directions:

Combine grated sweet potato, grated zucchini, green onion and seasonings. Let stand in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes allowing the juices to release.

Squeeze as much juice as possible by hand from the mix before adding the egg.

**Preheat frying pan with 1-2 tbsp of coconut oil on medium heat until hot ( near smoking). There should be enough to coat the bottom of the pan.

Form mix into small patties in your hands before placing in frying pan. Flatten again with spatula to make them an even surface.

Cook for approx. 10 minutes until golden brown before flipping to brown the other side. Continue cooking until that side is browned too. ( add more oil if necessary.

You will know when they are cooked when they seem to become firm on the outside and lift easily.

Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to remove any excess oil before serving.

Makes 6-8 Latkes depending on size

Note: I tried frying these with less oil and they tended to look a bit more burnt than browned (not as attractive) or as evenly cooked.

**You can also bake them at 400F on a baking sheet that is lightly oiled. They will not be as crispy but they are still brown nicely and are delicious. Bake for approx 20-25 minutes, flip them and bake 10-15 mins more until browned on both sides.

Easy-As Recipes - Gluten Free Main Meals Cookbook (Easy-As Gluten Free Recipes)

Easy-As Recipes – Gluten Free Main Meals Cookbook (Easy-As Gluten Free Recipes) by Nicole Hayes (Kindle Edition -Aug 26, 2012)

This book proves gluten free cooking doesn’t need to be difficult or boring. There is something in this list of delicious gluten-free recipes for everyone – stir fries and pies, cook-ahead meals and quick dishes. Most do not require expert cooking skills, just an ability to follow directions and some basic kitchen equipment – a few pans, a frying pan, grill, oven, wooden spoon, knife, and measuring jug – not much more. Some do require you to use a food processor, but even with these it is possible to get the same result in some other way – although perhaps with a little more effort.

Celiac Disease In Children: A Practical Guide For Parents Book No1 (How To Wave Goodbye To The Wheat & Gluten Gremlins) (Celiac Disease In Children: Gluten Free Recipes For Kids) by Lynda Fallon (Kindle Edition -May 2, 2012)

Many years prior to being diagnosed, my niece was displaying several symptoms and the major one was a failure to gain weight. Unfortunately, the remedy proposed to counteract this problem at the time was to increase her intake of any foods that would help bulk her out and her mum was encouraged to feed her plenty of pizza, bread, cake and biscuits. I can actually hear many of you gasping in horror. Well, as was to be expected, the failure to gain weight did not dissipate and many other symptoms increased. Blood tests were taken together with a small intestine biopsy and celiac disease was diagnosed. Once the gluten free diet was introduced the changes to my niece’s health, energy and growth were seen in a surprisingly short period of time.

Children suffering from Celiac disease have a rather tough time. While the condition itself is not painful, given that proper treatment is administered, having to deal with a restricted diet can be frustrating and annoying.
Even those who are old enough to understand the reason why they cannot eat the same things their friends eat will have a difficult time keeping track of all the requisites of a diet free from gluten. Parents can help make things a little bit easier by following a few simple guidelines:
Sticking to a gluten-free diet is challenging at any age. It’s a good thing though that a lot of the healthy food items that people are encouraged to eat more of, like fruits and vegetables, do not contain the offending protein.

Celiac Disease In Children: How To Prepare Fast, Easy & Nutritious GLUTEN FREE BREAKFASTS (Celiac Disease In Children: Gluten Free Recipes For Kids) by Lynda Fallon (Kindle Edition -May 2, 2012)

We are all told continuously how breakfast is the most important meal of the day and the one that certainly shouldn’t be skipped, but in all honesty we probably all feel it is the easiest to skip and if it isn’t skipped it is usually the most hurried during the week.
We are all busy and most of us have trouble getting out of bed so everything is left until last minute. This applies to Mum, Dad and the kids. In a busy household it is usually a time of hustle and bustle, shoving and pushing, shouting and crying. The perfect harmonious breakfast is a luxury, usually only seen at weekends because during the week William can’t find his homework and what’s more is in too much of a strop to look for it. Alice is still in her wardrobe trying to decide if her socks match her hairband, Max doesn’t want to go to school and Florence…Where is Florence and what can she safely have for her breakfast that is fast, filling and nutritious before embarking on her long journey to school?
The breakfast staple and reliable self-serve fast food has now become a nightmare for the celiac child! Or has it?

Paleo Diet Solution : Lose Weight The Easy And Healthy Way With Fat Burning Foods Paleo Diet Guide With Recipes And Meal Plans

Paleo Diet Solution : Lose Weight The Easy And Healthy Way With Fat Burning Foods Paleo Diet Guide With Recipes And Meal Plans by Sofia D’Andrea (Kindle Edition -Sep 14, 2012)

This book is not only created to provide a clearer explanation of what the Paleo diet is but also highlights the long term advantages of adopting this diet plan. Though we have made significant technological advancements over the years we have not been as successful in improving the way we eat. In fact, to be daring it can be said that it has gotten worse.
Processed foods and food filled with preservatives and additives is wreaking havoc on our system. The best way to correct this (which the book clearly states) is to go back to the way in which our ancestors ate. Eat things fresh and cut down on the use of salt and also eat more lean protein and balance it with fresh vegetables and fruits.
Other types of diets can be pretty hard to follow especially those geared to weight loss. A lot of them end up being harmful in the long run. Many say diets don’t work but the Paleo method is simply a way to modify ones diet by cutting out the unhealthy components and allowing the body to get back in peak condition from the cellular level. The best way to learn about it is to get the facts.

Eating low carb is an exercise in trade-offs.
On one hand, powerful science and millions of success stories attest to the amazing fat loss and health benefits of low carb diets, like Atkins and Protein Power. Indeed, carbohydrate restriction may just be a silver bullet capable of preventing or reversing dozens of diseases, including type 2 diabetes, obesity, and even cancer.
On the other hand, cutting carbs kinda sucks!🙂
