One common question I get asked over and over again is “what do you eat?!” The blog and the recipes I share are a pretty good reflection of my diet. I focus predominantly on whole foods, LOTS of veggies, fresh juices and (maybe to your surprise) the occasional beer & burger thrown in the mix! I’m a real girl, living a real life and it’s so important to me to show others that you can have that balance. You don’t have to be perfect all the time, just make smart decisions and focus on food that makes you feel good on the deepest level!
The weekend is upon us and I thought I’d share some of the recipes I’ve been enjoying this week that I haven’t posted on the blog. The beauty of these recipes is that they are all super simple and delicious! You can follow my daily eats on instagram (@lovelindawagner) here. I always try to stay super clean when I’m eating at home, that way if I decide to go out and have some less-than-healthy foods, it doesn’t have a negative effect on the way my body feels and operates. Here’s a peak at what I’ve been enjoying lately!
This Kale salad and this green juice have been a daily staple! I couldn’t even begin to count how many times I’ve had this salad in the last 3 weeks. I don’t know what my deal is with kale…but I just can’t get enough! You can also add some organic chicken if you’re looking for more protein.
I’ve been guzzling this detox tea daily. It has a really nice flavor and is so warm and cozy on these cold winter days. I love how it makes me feel – it’s like a gentle mini detox each day 🙂
This may not be the prettiest picture but it doesn’t have to be because it tastes so good! This is another staple of mine as a fast, easy meal. It’s so hearty and good and only takes 5 mins to make!
Green Lime Aid:
- 1 cucumber
- 2 green apples
- 1 romaine heart
- 1/2 bunch kale
- 1 lime
I also like to add 4-5 carrots to this recipe for extra beta-carotene, vit A, vit C, and antioxidants! The color will not be as bright and vibrant but it still tastes great! Run through a Breville juicer and enjoy! Makes about 24 ounces.
- used basic models starting at $120
- the Breville middle range juicer starts at $160 used
- the juicer I use is the Juice Fountain Elite which you can get used for $215. I got mine new at Bed Bath & Beyond using a 20% off coupon.
I have used each model and all of them are wonderful so just choose the model that aligns with your budget. Craigslist can also be a great place to score a great deal. Your juicer will last you several years and it’s one of the best kitchen additions to really help take your health to the next level! Plus it’s tons of fun!
Super easy One Pot Chicken Dinner: Organic chicken with garlic, rosemary, and thyme.
Coat chicken in sea salt and pepper. Then, in a dutch oven over med high heat, brown the chicken on both sides, add enough chicken broth to cover, 4-5 cloves chopped garlic, rosemary, and thyme. Cook covered at med heat for 30-45 mins. Smells amazing!! Serve with your fave veggies!
My favorite juice as of late: Grapefruit + Orange + Blood Orange. Tastes like sunshine!!
Juicing Tip: line the pulp bucket with a produce bag for easy clean up!
Super Simple 5 Min Veggie Soup. This one is a strange one but it was really good! I needed something really fast so I heated up some homemade broth from this recipe and added fresh baby spinach, baby carrots (these were already cooked as they were used in making the broth. see recipe), diced avocado, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. It was really simple but hit the spot! Im learning more and more that it’s always good to have homemade broth on hand!
Scrambled eggs with spinach, sea salt, and lots of fresh cracked pepper. Super simple and oh so good!
As you can see, I keep it pretty simple! I know most people feel overwhelmed when it comes to switching to a healthier lifestyle but it really is possible to live a normal life and still be healthy and fit! Just KISS – keep it simple, silly! That means real food that tastes great and is fast and easy to prepare!
