This shake features six of my favorite slimming superfoods. Combined, they offer all of the anti-inflammatory benefits your body needs. I guarantee that it will make you feel awesome. Consider this before or after a workout to provide great fuel. Due to the thickening power of chia, drink this immediately after making.

  • 1 tbsp ground or whole chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds (hearts)

The name of this recipe says it all-it really is easy and always tastes amazing. Fresh shiitakes are now a breeze to find at the supermarket, and dried ones are usually available in natural food stores. Shiitake mushroom help in the production of white blood cells. Research is showing that they make white blood cells act more aggressively against foreign bacteria. They have a meaty texture and tons of flavor, so feel free to omit the meat and make this a vegetarian dish along with some quinoa.

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts or beef strips or tempeh, cut into ½-inch x 2-inch strips

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 tbsp grated fresh ginger root

2 tbsp honey

2 tbsp wheat-free tamari or coconut aminos

3 cups broccoli florets

2 cups sliced shiitake mushroom caps

2 cups red pepper, sliced (or carrots if nightshade sensitive)

Directions:

  1. In a large non-stick skillet, stir-fry meat and garlic in oil for 1 minute. Add ginger, honey and tamari, Stir until meat is cooked through, then remove with a slotted spoon, leaving sauce in pan.
  2. Stir-fry vegetables in sauce for 4 to 5 minutes or until tender. Return meat to pan and stir gently. Serve immediately.

Whoops! Two Posts coming at ya today! First: Recipe of the Week!

Hello Friends!

Well it looks like I dropped the ball on Recipe of the Week this week! We have it nicely printed out here at the Studio but not posted for you guys! :S…..funny enough the recipe this week is Pan Fried Giant Scallops with Tequila Lime Reduction (maybe I was taste testing the Tequila a little too much 😀 ) So here it is a little late…THE RECIPE OF THE WEEK! (later on today we will have the 4th installment of the Foam Roller Vlogs 🙂 )

Pan Fried giant Scallops with Tequila Lime Reduction

Image

Ingredients:
• ½ cup Tequila
• 2 cups freshly squeezed lime juice
• 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
• 2-4 jalapeños, steamed, seeded and coarsely chopped
• 1 ½ cups of 1/2-in. green onion pieces
• 2 cups chopped cilantro leaves
• 2 teaspoons garlic
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 2lbs. (1kg) large sea scallops
• 2 tbsp olive oil
• 2 limes, quartered
• 6 teaspoons minced cilantro
Preparation:
• Place all ingredients except scallops and olive oil in a blender or food processor and purée. Test the mixture and add more jalapeños as desired.
• Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl and set aside.
• Rinse scallops in cold water, and pat dry.
• In a non-stick sauté pan over high heat, heat the olive oil just until smoking. Add the scallops to the sauté pan and sear well without stirring or tossing.
• Add the citrus mixture to the pan, and bring to a boil. When the liquid reaches a boil, turn the scallops and cook for a minute more. Remove the scallops, cover to keep warm, and reduce the sauce to half its original volume over high heat. (You can add a bit of cornstarch to speed up the process)
• To serve, divide the scallops among the plates. Pour the liquid from pan directly over the plates.
• Garnish with lime wedges and cilantro.

Yield: 8 servings
