Modern Day Healthy Helper

Modern Day Healthy Helper

Were you a 80s and 90s kid?  Do you remember Hamburger Helper, it was a classic in my home growing up.  And it was one of my favorites.  Since then I have learned a ton about food, nutrition and being healthy.  Experimenting with old classics and turning them into a healthy meal has become so fun for me and I love to share what I find.  So this is my newest update on an old Classic Modern Day Healthy Helper. 

Basic Everyday Seasoning

Basic Everyday Seasoning

There are all kinds of seasoning mixes in the store.  And all different ways to season our food.  I have found that many of the seasonings I love are made by companies that don’t use organic spices which for me is important.  So I started glancing on the back of the spice mixtures and coming up with similar combinations of my own.  One of which is this Basic Everyday Seasoning. 

Green Goddess/Ninja Turtle Smoothie

Ready to be a Green Goddess or for the little guy we call it the Ninja Turtle!  This smoothie is packed with Vitamins, Minerals, and Energy!  Great for a Snack or Breakfast!

Green Goddess Smoothie

What do you need:

  • 1 cup of Spinach
  • 2 Large Kale Leaves
  • 1 cup Strawberries or a Banana (Your choice)
  • 1-2 TBSP Peanut or Almond Butter
  • ¼- ½ cup of Almond Milk
  • Optional a couple ice cubes

Throw all ingredients in the Blender (I love the Nutri Ninja!)  and Blend!  Then Enjoy!  This is a great way to get veggies into little ones which is a battle in our home.  When he hears Ninja Turtle Smoothie he is Excited!  And I promise it does not taste like Spinach or Kale!  Double the recipe for a larger smoothie.


XO Enjoy!
