WATERMELON JUICE

I just blended the flesh of 1 whole watermelon (seedless is better, but seeds are fine) with a small squeeze of lime juice and topped with some mint leaves. You could strain it if you wanted to, but I’m fine with the pulp.

LENTIL MEATBALLS WITH TOMATO SAUCE AND NOODLES

For the lentils meatballs I used this recipe, but I needed to cook mine for about half an hour longer to get them crisp:

For the tomato sauce, I just blended 6 organic tomatoes with about 6 sundried tomatoes (not packed in oil, just plain in a bag-soaked in water for a few minutes) and 4 medjool dates (soaked in water). I added a little bit of water from the tomatoes and dates to make it saucy and blend well, along with a shallot and 1 clove of garlic. I also like to add lots of fresh basil.

The pasta is just rice spaghetti.

From this awesome recipe:

The only thing I did differently was put the avocado on top instead of mixed in with the quinoa.

GREEN SMOOTHIE

I don’t normally measure too much to make smoothies- I just eyeball it. Usually a green smoothie goes like this:

-Fill blender a little less than halfway with water, almond milk, and orange juice (I have a vitamix)

-Add 6-8 bananas, followed by a few leaves of kale, and topped with chunks of frozen mango

-Blend and drink. Yum!
