Breakfast: Green Power Smoothie

This green machine will give you the energy and nutrients you need to start your day. Make a little more and you can store the leftover in your fridge for a boost any time you need it.


Lunch: Chickpea 'Tuna' Salad Sandwich

We love this easy chickpea 'tuna' served on whole wheat bread, on slider buns or even over a salad. No matter how you serve it, this recipe is so easy you will be well equipped to satisfy your hunger during a long workday.


Snack: Hummus and Olive Crudité with Vegetables 

This will become your go-to snack before you know it. DIp any of your favorite veggies, chips or pita bread in the hummus and olive dips. Bring it to work or eat it at home, either way, this snack is a quick and filling snack that will leave you satisfied until the next meal.


Dinner: Black Bean Pesto Pasta

If you've never heard of Black Bean Pasta you're missing out! This pasta alternative is gluten-free, low in carbs, high in fiber, and super high in protein. Don’t expect it to taste or feel exactly like regular pasta, but with the right sauce, like this creamy pesto, this pasta is just as delicious.


Dessert: Lemon Coconut Medicine Balls

Feeling sick? The ingredients in these lemon coconut balls are beneficial to your health: Ginger can help relieve sore throats as well as loss of appetite, lemon is packed with vitamin C and boosts your immune system, and coconut oil relieves congestion, sore throats, and coughs. All these health benefits packed into tiny little balls, or as we like to call them, medicine balls!
