September/October 2019

As a fitness professional, I am always searching for healthy recipes. Here are 3 of my favorites that my family loves as well.

COCONUT COLLARD GREENS
1 1/2 tsp. Extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 medium onion, diced
1/2 bunch collard greens, stems removed, cut into 1/2 inch strips 
1/4 cup coconut milk 
1 dash of Himalayan salt (to taste; optional) 

Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook, stirring frequently, for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown and very soft. Add collard greens and coconut milk, cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes, or until greens are very tender. Add salt if desired.

AVOCADO GREEN SMOOTHIE 
1/2 small avocado 
1 1/2 cups fresh spinach 
1 cup frozen pineapple chunks 
1 cup frozen peach slices 
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk 

Blend together in a blender and enjoy!

SWEET POTATO AND ROASTED RED PEPPER BISQUE  
1 cup water 
1 medium sweet potato (or yam), peeled, cubed 
1/4 medium red bell pepper 
1 tsp, finely grated ginger root 
1 1/2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil 
1 cup vegetable broth (or water) 
Bragg Liquid Aminos (or Himalayan salt, to taste, optional) 

Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat; add sweet potato; cook for 5-7 minutes. Drain. Set aside. Roast bell pepper on grill or gas stovetop. Turn frequently until skin is evenly charred. Place in medium bowl. Cover with a kitchen towel for 10 minutes. Peel skin under running water. Remove seeds. Chop into 1/2-inch cubes.  
Place sweet potato, bell pepper, ginger, oil, and broth in a blender or food processor, in 2 or more batches if necessary, cover with lid and kitchen towel. Blend until smooth. If consistency is too thick, add water. Heat soup in a medium saucepan over medium heat; cook, stirring frequently, for 4-5 minutes, or until hot. Add Bragg Liquid Aminos and seasoning blend if desired.
