If you’re one of the #blessed few who is still sticking to your New Year’s resolutions, here’s a bunch of high fives. For the rest of you who’ve quickly grown tired of the flavourless, maybe what you need is some inspiration! Well, look no further than today’s batch of crazy healthy, superfood charged recipes courtesy of former FASHION market editor turned health guru Jordan Porter. She currently runs food blog, The Annex Kitchen in addition to just launching a line of health bars, Nola bars handcrafted from her current residence in San Francisco. Her recipes are all grain-free and low in sugar, which while may not match the exact tenants of whatever diet currently floats your boat, work with any balanced, high-protein routine.
So, without further ado, here are three ridiculously amazing looking healthy recipes we just dare you not to Pin.
Morning “Bulletproof” Matcha Latte
Before you gasp at these ingredients, read this. Good fats are actually our friend—they improve our brain function, keep us feeling full longer, help us absorb vitamins and minerals and can actually make it easier for us to burn fat. And matcha… don’t even get me started! This one is my favourite. I drink this every morning as breakfast, before eating my first meal around 1pm, and POOF! Bloating gone and my stomach has never felt (or looked) better. Before a workout, I’ll combine it with half a grain-free Nola bar for a little extra energy.
⅓ cup full-fat coconut milk (look for one with just coconut and water on the ingredient list)
*alternate: unsweetened almond milk
1 cup boiling water
1 tbsp of unsalted grass-fed butter—try your local farmer’s market for the grass-fed stuff:)
1 tbsp of unrefined virgin coconut oil
½ tsp culinary or ceremonial grade matcha powder
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of ground Himalayan sea salt
Add all ingredients to blender and blend on high for 1 minute. Pour into your favourite mug or to-go cup and sip slowly over 45 minutes to an hour. Enjoy!
