My mealtimes all revolve around protein. If you follow me on Instagram, I probably sound like a broken record, as I have mentioned many times in the past, I take a but first, protein approach to food. I make sure I get at least 20 grams of protein at every meal, and in the event that I snack between meals, I make sure my snacks are protein-centric as well.
In addition to making sure I get adequate protein throughout the day, I also tend to drink a smoothie for either breakfast or lunch. That may seem like a pretty light meal, but my smoothies are typically on the higher calorie end in the way of smoothies, and have a pretty decent macro profile.
I’ve found that having one liquid meal per day also helps with digestion – simply put, liquid is far easier for your body to process than solid food. In this sense, protein smoothies are currently a big deal in my life, as I usually drink them after I workout to replenish muscle glycogen and feed my broken down muscle fibers with protein.
Two recipes for adaptogenic protein smoothies to sip on throughout your busy workweek. These healthful smoothies serve as a great snack or light meal replacement and are teaming with nutrients and health benefits.
Paleo eggnog latte with homemade vegan eggnog. This festive beverage is naturally sweetened and dairy-free.
As you know, I’m a daily drinker of the bulletproof coffee, but from time to time, I enjoy an afternoon homemade coffee treat such as a Pumpkin Spice Latte, or an Eggnog Latte. While I do enjoy a nice holiday-inspired treat, I’d choose a hot beverage over a Christmas cookie if you can believe it.
There’s something about sipping on something warm, warmly spiced, festive, and ever so slightly sweet that just brings all the holiday cheer to your heart and soul.
Sometimes that special something is straight up coffee and whisky during a day of snowboarding, and sometimes that special something is an eggnog latte.
After whipping up The BEST Vegan Eggnog a couple weeks back, I went on an Eggnog Latte kick (using decaf coffee, because girl’s gotta sleep, you know?).
Creamy, naturally sweet dairy-free vegan eggnog made with all plant-based whole food ingredients. This healthier eggnog recipe is goof-proof and tastes like the real deal!
If these walls could talk, they would tell you how assertively I’ve been sucking down the ‘nog.
They’d straight up tell on me.
In all honesty, I shy away from using the terminology, “The Best,” but you guys…this really is THE BEST VEGAN EGGNOG TO EVER WALK THE LAND <- All caps for emphasis.
Seriously, I’m shocked by how seamlessly this recipe materialized out of the ether…it basically walked right up to me, smacked me ever-so gently on the face and said, “Make me, you silly woman.” You think I’m kidding, and I’m not.
This ‘nog was made for you and me.

A happy-gut smoothie with figs, beet, blueberry, pineapple, coconut milk yogurt, and almond milk. This easily digestible banana-free smoothie is an awesome breakfast or snack.
Before I discovered my banana intolerance, I drank smoothies every day. Since going banana-free, I go in and out of smoothie kicks depending on the state of my gut health. If I have an IBS flare up, I gravitate toward replacing a meal or two with a smoothie or bone broth, as liquid is much easier on your digestive tract than solid food.
This fig beet blueberry smoothie is one of my recent happy-gut concoctions. It incorporates ingredients that are not only easy on your digestive system, but are welcomed with open arms. I use a fig, a few hunks of beet, blueberries, pineapple, coconut milk yogurt (probiotics), almond milk, ground cinnamon, raw pumpkin seeds (a natural anti-parasitic!) and some collagen peptides (awesome for repairing damaged gut lining!).
