Well gang, the cookbook launched last week so I’m sharing one last recipe here from it and then I’ll get back to my usual reviews and random thoughts about practical, low-stress, satisfying eating and living for heart health.
But first, announcement!
I’m trying something new… If you’ve picked up the book, join me for a free chapter-by-chapter tour starting October 7. We’ll dive into 1-2 chapters a week and hopefully, six weeks later, you’ll have a few new favourites in your repertoire. Would love to see my cookbook used and not just collecting dust on the cookbook shelf.
If you want to participate, click here to join the Facebook group. I’ll post photos and/or video of at least one recipe from each chapter, and encourage others to do the same, as well as share comments and tips from the recipes in that chapter. I’ll also answer your questions, so ask away.
For now, try this one, and let me know what you think.
Chocolate Power Smoothie
DASH / Mediterranean / Vegan / No-Cook / Portable
Serves 2 (1½ cup servings)
Frozen blueberries and spinach give you a morning nutrition boost. Substitute whatever kind of milk you prefer. If you go with cow’s milk, you may need a teaspoon or two of honey to sweeten it. With almond milk or another plant beverage, which are very low in protein, double the hemp seeds.
1 medium frozen banana
Ingredient Tip: Shelled hemp seeds (sometimes called hemp hearts) have a nutty, earthy taste and are high in protein and heart-healthy fats. Buy them in the natural food aisle of a well-stocked grocery store, or in any health food store.
Flavour Boost: Exchange the peanut butter for a cup of chilled coffee for a mocha delight.
