Pink Smoothie Bowl Recipe:

1-2 frozen bananas (depending on how sweet you want it)

1 cup frozen strawberries

1 cup frozen raspberries

1 tbsp honey or agave syrup your choice of toppings

Directions: Take all frozen ingredients and put them into a high speed blender or food processor. Add about a tablespoon or two of water and blend until it has no chunks.

Add the agave or honey and blend until well combined. Put in your favorite bowl and add toppings of your choice (fruit, granola, nuts, etc.)!

Asian Themed Salad Recipe:

1-2 eggs

half a sweet potato

1-3 cups of spinach or kale

half an avocado

1 mini cucumber

½ tsp olive oil

1 tbsp sesame oil

Your choice of seasoning

Directions: Chop up sweet potato and sautée it in the olive oil and add it to the spinach or kale. Fry the egg(s) and put on the sweet potato mixture.

Add cucumber and avocado slices and pour sesame oil on top.

You might be thinking, salad for breakfast?! Bleh. But remember, we should all aim to have at least 2 servings of greens per day, which is equal to two cups. Sesame oil is a staple in Asian households and contains zinc, iron, and magnesium that may help improve blood circulation and metabolism. These restorative properties in turn, help keep you radiating inside and out, and what better way to start the day?
