Last year I met the wonderful and energetic Mirjam Blanken during my studies. Mirjam is an orthomolecular therapist and the founder of www.eatpurelove.nl. She loves good food and creates the most beautiful healthy recipes (gluten free, dairy free and sugar free!) on her website. She also features many healthy hotspots in the Netherlands and this summer will expand her blackbook with some great fit-foodie-hangouts Bali! This inspiring globetrotter and allround lifelover shares two of her delicious on-the-go recipes. Happy food prepping!
I love food with lots of colors. (Or with lots of chocolate ;) ) So I made a colorful Red Beet Smoothie with raw cacao and a Thai Rainbow Salad in a jar. Foodprepping is my new thing. When I have a busy day ahead I just make some extra dinner and take the leftovers with me in a jar so I have a perfect lunch!
RED BEET SMOOTHIE
This smoothie is the perfect pre-workout treat. Red beet contains nitrate and has a positive effect on your endurance.
1 red beet (raw)
250ml almond milk
3 tbsp raw cacaopowder
1 tsp coconut sugar
Just put all ingredients in a blender and blend away!
THAI RAINBOW SALAD IN A JAR
I’m a huge peanutbutterlover. So I made a peanutbutter dressing with this salad.
300 gram organic chicken
handful of cashew nuts
salad of choice
* I didn’t add any amounts for the veggies. Just choose whatever you like!
1/4 cup peanutbutter
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp sesam oil
1 tsp garam masala
optional: a little water
Mix the ingredients well in the blender.
These colors look great on a plate! When you take your salad to go, then only add the dressing right before you start eating.
