A “super-food” snack

Strawberries are high in vitamin C, they are immune system boosting, inflammation reducing, antioxidant filled delicious fruits! Avocado are filled with good fats! They help to maintain a healthy heart, lower cholesterol, control blood pressure, and more! So together they make a very healthy and delicious snack, and as I’ve said before Dr. Oz recommends you eat a half of avocado a day and had a whole segment on the benefits of strawberries, so need I say more? I cut these up and made a quick dressing for them with organic honey, apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, and a little bit of fresh lemon juice. Yum!

Lunch Wraps

Lunch Wraps

Okay so healthy eating has been slow lately, unfortunately. I keep eating the same things and I need to go food shopping desperately! But here is another tuna wrap I made for lunch today. Onion and orange pepper in the tuna itself, and then all the greens I had in my fridge: arugula, baby spinach and romaine lettuce. Tonight for dinner I’m going to switch it up, so stay tuned haha!

Homemade hummus

Homemade hummus

I love hummus and it’s a much healthier pair to some fresh raw veggies than the more common choice of ranch dressing but I’m not a big fan of processed foods. Making some at home is easy and you get to control what’s being put in your body. In this recipe I used a can of chickpeas, half of an avocado, a quarter of a roasted pepper and a little bit of garlic and black pepper. After mixing the ingredients in a sealable container I just used a hand blender on it for about 30 seconds and that was it! So good!
