Creamy Greeny

"Creamy Greeny" -
1 frozen banana
1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 serving (4 tablespoons) TJ's chocolate hemp protein powder
2 tablespoons TJ's unsweetened cocoa powder
1 huge handful baby spinach, rinsed (approx 2 cups)
1 handful ice cubs (approx 5-6)

Put it all in the VitaMix or other blend. Blend until smooth.

This is good stuff! Reminiscent of Jamba Juice's Peanut Butter Moo'd but at just 507 calories vs. 1200 for the same size. Plus cheaper and healthier!

Stuffed Mushrooms

These stuffed mushrooms are gluten free, dairy free and Paleo friendly.

a dozen stuffable mushrooms
1/2 lb Italian sausage
1/4 red pepper
1/4 cup red onion
2 green onion
small handful of parsley
1 egg, whisked
2 T+ almond meal
garlic salt
fresh cracked sea salt & black pepper

Remove the stems from the mushrooms, mince mushroom stems and all other veggies. In a little olive oil cook the red pepper, red onion, green onion, mushroom stems for a few minutes. Add sausage and cook until cooked through. Add parsley, garlic salt and fresh cracked salt & pepper to taste. Put aside to cool.
Mix egg and almond meal to sausage-veggie mix. Add more almond meal if needed so the mix starts to sort of stick together. Spray a cookie sheet with olive oil and set up mushrooms. Spoon filling in to mushrooms, packing down and mounding the filling on top. Cook in a 400F oven until golden brown (about 20-25 minutes).
