Week 2 Day 7 Breakfast - Banana, Strawberry, and Walnut Smoothie

This morning vegan gluten-free breakfast brings you a great source of vitamin E and many antioxidant benefits. If you have an issue finding a great source of strawberries, use frozen sliced strawberries.

Ingredients for Banana, Strawberry, and Walnut Smoothie:

  • 1 Banana, peeled and frozen
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, halved
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (about 1 orange)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts

This breakfast smoothie is pretty straight forward. Provides enough for two people. Just take all of the ingredients and place inside of the blender and smooth to desired smoothness. Server Immediately. If not cold enough add a couple extra ice cubes.

Week 2 Day 7 Lunch - Pasta Salad with Avocado Pesto Cream Sauce

This is a great vegetarian salad option to make and take with you for lunch. If the sauce turns brown from the avocados, don't worry it's still delicious to eat as long as you eat within the same day. To add a little bit more of a kick I added in a little balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

Pasta Salad with Avocado Pesto Cream Sauce

Ingredients for the Pasta Salad with Avocado Pesto Cream Sauce:

  • 12 ounces 100% whole-wheat fusilli
  • 2 avocados, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons Basil Pesto
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

First you want to cook the fusilli pasta according to the package directions. Then rinse and drain with cold water. In a food processor combine the avocados, lemon juice, pesto, oil, and salt until smooth.

In a large bowl combine the pasta, tomatoes, and avocado sauce and sprinkle the servings with cheese. Recipe makes enough for 4 people while providing each serving with 564 calories, 28.6g of fat and 19.1g of protein. Makes for a great vegetarian salad for lunch.

Week 2 Day 7 Dinner - Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Roasted Red Peppers, Olives and Feta

This is a great Mediterranean-inspired dish. The stuffing for the chicken will surely bring a mouthwatering sensation of joy in every single bite. Great with a side of rice as well.
