Simple Tuna Wrap

Coconut Paleo Wraps
Standard

I’d always heard about people adding avocado to their tuna instead of mayonnaise. Originally I discarded the thought because the taste combination didn’t seem to work in my head, however with the development of my egg allergy I had to step outside my comfort zone.

I decided to give the avocado and tuna a try but I wanted to spice it up a little and include more flavor. The result was a fresca, guacamole inspired tuna salad that I placed in a coconut wrap. This wrap is delicious, simple to make and relatively inexpensive… it’s a triple threat. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

INGREDIENTS

1 can of tuna
1/2 avocado, sliced
juice of 1 lime
1/2 red onion, diced
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
1 – 2 coconut wraps

RECIPE

Drain liquid from the tuna and place tuna in a bowl.
Add avocado, lime juice, red onion and cilantro to bowl.
Mix all ingredients together, mashing occasionally; until desired consistency is reached.
Place tuna mixture into wrap.

It’s that simple. Also, it’s a great option for a picnic or camping, the ingredients are simple enough to transport which means you can bring it with you and make it wherever you are.

Happy Wrapping!

Superfood Shake

Superfood Shake
Standard

It’s not often that the morning goes by without me whipping up a Superfood Shake to boost my nutrient intake, and subsequently, my energy!

Because the ingredient list in this shake is packed with a variety of lesser-known and therefore harder to locate Superfoods, I’ve hesitated sharing this recipe, as you know how we like to keep things simple :)…but after being asked by numerous co-workers what I’m putting in my tasty morning concoction, I finally gave in…

So here it is – my personal favorite (and rather addicting) Superfood Shake recipe!

INGREDIENTS

6 cubes of ice
3 dates, pitted
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 teaspoon egg-white protein powder
1 teaspoon cacao powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon instant coffee grinds (or a shot of espresso and a little less coconut milk)
1/2 teaspoon maca powder
1/2 teaspoon matcha green tea powder

RECIPE

This is where it’s easy – just place all the ingredients in a blender and pulse for about a minute until well blended.

Pour into a large glass and enjoy while chilled.

And then start your day by giving yourself a pat on the back – knowing that you have given your body a boost of superfoods containing antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that your body needs.

A New Year, A New You

Property of ThePaleoPact.com
Standard

It’s the New Year! Even after two weeks it’s still hard to believe that another year has gone by and a new one has started. Every year the transition into a new year seems to creep up on me and then fly by before I even realize what has happened.

I’m encouraging you to set aside time right now and think about your coming year, because we know we won’t actually do it later like we say we will. A New Year offers so many possibilities, you can adopt a new look, start a solid exercise plan, do better at eating well, basically become a new person. So what are you going to do to become a new you?

Pick three things to focus on this year that will help you become a new you, a you that is more inline with your goals and dreams. Then do one thing today for each of those areas of focus. To help you with this I’ll show you my focuses and tasks.

The three things I will do to become a new me this year…

  1. Focus more on my yoga practice- today I’ll go to the hot yoga class I haven’t had time for, for the past week.
  2. Focus on reducing stress- I’m not great at meditating but today I’ll take 15 minutes and try my best to meditate.
  3. Focus on enjoying the moment- today I will go for a walk and not spend the whole walk thinking about what I need to do when I make it home but instead enjoy being outside and having time to myself.

Now it’s your turn. Don’t over think it, just write down what’s on your mind, there is no right or wrong answer here. Now tomorrow do one thing towards each of your areas of focus and so on. This are slightly different than health goals because they are broader, don’t need to be as defined and don’t need to be health specific.

Happy New You!

Baked Apple

Baked Apple
Standard

If there was ever an indisputably healthy dessert, this is it!

Baked Apple has been a favorite after-dinner treat of mine ever since I was a young girl. Its slightly tart, slightly sweet and slightly textured taste always intrigued me and it wasn’t until recently that I realized just how easy it is to make…

INGREDIENTS

1 whole apple, skin on
1/8 cup raisins or dried cranberries
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon honey or raw agave nectar

RECIPE

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Core the apple and fill the center with raisins or cranberries (or a combination of the two).
Place the stuffed apple in an oven-safe dish, pop it in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove the dish from the oven, sprinkle cinnamon and honey/agave over the center of the apple and place the dish back in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes.
Scoop the apple onto a plate and drizzle any excess honey/agave from the oven dish over the apple or around the plate for decoration.
Enjoy warm.
