With busy schedules and things moving too quickly, there are times when food can *unintentionally* become a low priority. We get that.
However, it is important to understand the relationship between food and our health, and how food fuels our bodies with energy to get things done every single day. The good news is it only takes the right motivation to learn to make more informed decisions when it comes to your nutrition! Last January 27, we did a second run of our Plant-Based Smoothie And Sandwich Duo at Sun City Grand where the participants got a hands-on experience in preparing simply healthy food. This time, we explored two new recipes; chickpea (tuna-like) sandwich, and ban-apple green smoothie!
We're happy to share with you the recipes so you can try them, too!
Chickpea (Tuna-like) Sandwich Ingredients:
2 cans chickpea, drained & rinsed
8 tbsp Vegenaise
10 tbsp celery, minced
4 tbsp carrots, minced
10 tbsp purple onion, minced
2 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp pepper
½ tsp salt
2 tsp lemon juice
1. Mash the chickpea using a potato masher or a fork until the texture looks similar to tuna flakes.
2. Add all the ingredients and mix well.
Ban-Apple Green Smoothie BLEND:
4 cups spring mix
6 cups almond milk
ADD the following, then BLEND
1 medium-sized apple, cut in small chunks, frozen or fresh
