VABB (Vanilla Almond Butter Banana) Shakeology

This is one of the first Shakeology recipes I created to satiate my taste buds! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Vanilla Almond Butter Banana 

1/2 cup – 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I use So Good) – the more almond milk you add, the creamier your shake will be

1 scoop Vanilla Shakeology

1 tbsp almond butter

1/2 banana

Add all ingredients to your Magic Bullet or blender, blend until smooth.

Tip: I make my Shakeology first thing in the morning, and refrigerate it until I’m ready to drink it. This gives it time for the flavours to blend. Dee-licious!

1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 cup water

1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology (or 1 packet if you are using single serving pouches)

Blend until creamy. Drink. Love. Enjoy.

Salmon with Preserved Lemon and Quinoa Tabbouleh

This recipe is ah-mazing! Big thanks to my mom who found it and brought it to my attention. SO delish. A note: it helps if you are already a lemon lover as the flavour is quite strong.

It looks like a lot of steps, but it’s pretty simple when you break it down. Plus, the lemon vinaigrette can be made a few days in advance if desired. For this dish, begin with the preserved lemons and work your way back to the salmon. Continue reading
