Going Bananas for banana smoothie bowls

Updated*

Welcome To Luna Voda Coaching

I love eating smoothie bowls because first of all they are SO TASTY and second – they are packed with nutrients and easy on the digestion. When you include bananas, they give your smoothie a thick consistency, flavour and, if you are looking for more satiety, caloric density.

The unique mix of vitamins, minerals, and low glycemic carbohydrates in bananas make those meals a raw plant-powered fuel before or after your workouts!

Here are some quick suggestions, I hope you enjoy them too!

The ‘Universe’ on a plate

The ‘Universe’ on a plate

I love making my food look beautiful because I am a firm believer that the colors in food represent different chakras in our bodies so the more vibrant your food is the more vibrant your health is going to be!

It only takes me 10-15min to prepare bowls like this, I hope you are tempted to try this.

To make this one showed in the picture, simply blend bunch frozen (or fresh) kale, one medium cucumber, two small zucchini, a cup of frozen green peas and a bunch of strawberries. When is blended, top it with a tablespoon of raw coconut flour, tons of blueberries and a teaspoon of acai and carob powders.

Here are two other quick-fix recipes:

You need a cup of coconut water, dash of soy milk (optional), basil, chia seeds (a tablespoon), mixed berries, kale&spinach blend (or any greens you have; the more of them the better for your digestion – and, no, you don’t taste them:)) and one small cucumber. You can also add fresh squeezed lime juice and some basil. Blend!:)

Another super easy to make vegan protein shake on the go,  and better than most processed protein bars: a cup of frozen green peas, coconut milk, small pear, blueberries, a tablespoon of hemp seeds and a dash of wheat grass powder for the ‘greens’ kick.

“Weirdo” Smoothie Bowl for Open-Minded Tastes

“Weirdo” Smoothie Bowl for Open-Minded Tastes

That combo may sounds strange, even for me, but tasted very very good!

After a dance class I craved something sweet and savory (like carbohydrates and vegetables mixed together) and decided to experiment with the ingredients I had available at home.

What I did was to blend 3 Frozen bananas and 2 figs together with some broccoli and one small cucumber (for hydration).

Then I added apple chunks …. and cherry tomatoes (optional) but remember they are actually fruit!;)

The moral of this post is to remind you to stay flexible with your food and to avoid stigmatic dogmas about your meal preps.

Surprisingly, that smoothie bowl felt just what I needed – satisfying, refreshing and not too sweet! And DELICIOUS!

Beauty Detox Salad

Beauty Detox Salad

You probably`ve heard that greens are great for your skin and organs because of their alkalizing properties, variety of minerals and chlorophyll content. In this salad, you can accelerate the detox process in your body by adding leaves of nettle to your dressing: very rich in iron and various health benefits food. You can substitute it with arugula as well.

What you need:

A head of lettuce, 2 medium zucchinis, 2 spoons of raw seeds of your choice (I used pumpkin and sesame seeds for this recipe), kumquats (or cherry tomatoes), nettles (or arugula), one small pear, fresh lemon juice (or balsamic vinegar).

Optional adds:

Basil, mustard, nutritional yeast, jalapenos pepper (just a small piece),  dulse, serving of Dr. Bragg`s liquid aminos sauce

For the dressing: blend on low speed a couple of nettle leaves, with 1 or 2 zucchinis (I put the second into my spiralizer as a decoration but feel free to simply peel or chop it into small pieces – or use it in the dressing for more thickness), a small pear, leaves of basil, touch of nutritional yeast, the seeds and a piece of a jalapenos pepper (use as much as you desire, beware it`s spicy!), tiny bits of mustard (preferably organic) and half of a fresh lemon. Blend it until smooth and then combine with the lettuce. If you want to be saltier go for Dr Bragg`s aminos – low in sodium and rich in amino acids healthier substitute for soy sauce.

Enjoy!
