Peaches and Cream Smoothie

My sister brought a giant crate of fresh peaches home from the grocery store this week, so it’s only appropriate that I make a skinny Peaches and Cream Smoothie! This smoothie has just the right amount of sweetness and is completely vegan. I added vanilla protein powder to make it a little more filling, but if you aren’t a fan of protein powder, it’s still great without it! Try adding a quarter cup of oats to make this delicious summer smoothie even more hearty!

Rainbow Veggie Kebabs

Hi bunnies!

I’m finally back from San Francisco and Orlando, so I am back to the grind of spinning and cooking up new recipes for you guys!

I wanted to share a fun healthy recipe for the 4th of July!

Colorful dishes are the healthiest. The more colorful, the better… and no, I’m not talking about Froot Loops. Vividly colored fruits and vegetables are filled with flavonoids and polyphenols; powerful antioxidants that will support your retina, mitochondria, brain cells, and aid the removal of toxins. You can get your daily dose from vibrant veggies such as beats, carrots, peppers, and red cabbage, as well as brightly colored berries, and fruits like peaches, oranges, etc.

To achieve optimal health, aim for 3 different colors of fruits and veggies everyday!

Not only are these kebabs filled with important vitamins and minerals, but they also tally up to a total of 4 different veggies (tomatoes, bell peppers, potatoes, and onion) of 5 different colors! Feed your brain, not just your tummy!

Serves 4

4 cherry tomatoes
1 red bell pepper
1 orange bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
2 mini white potatoes
2 mini purple potatoes
1 red onion

Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar

Wash and shop veggies. Place veggies in a container or large ziplock bag with olive oil and vinegar (enough to coat the veggies). Let the vegetables marinate for at least 2 hours. Place veggies on each skewer in rainbow order. Place each skewer directly on the barbecue and grill for 6-8 minutes per side or until veggies are tender.

Crunchy Chia Energy Bites

Congratulations to the winner of my Butter London Giveaway, Margaret! I cannot wait for you to get your Butter Box :)

I am off to one of my sister’s bazillion bridal showers this morning and after that I’m flying straight to San Francisco for 24 hours, and then leaving for Florida for a conference on Tuesday morning! The next month leading up to my sister’s wedding (July 19th) is going to be a serious whirlwind.

I picked up the new EMRF neon summer tanks, but I won’t be able to list them in my store until I get back from all of my crazy travels next week. Most of you already know, that this blog and store is run by me, myself, and I, so I didn’t want to post the new shirts and be unable to ship them for a week. I hope you guys understand! New shirts will be available soon though!

Crunchy-Chia-Energy-Bites-6
Today’s recipe is for Crunchy Chia Energy Bites! I took double back-to-back classes at Full Psycle the other day and wanted to share my secret pre and in-between workout snack. When you do a really intense cardio session like cycling/spinning, you don’t want to eat something heavy before because you will feel absolutely terribly during class, and you don’t want to go starving because you will be terribly weak. It can be really hard to find a snack suitable for you and your chosen workout, but this is what I love!

These energy bites are filled with natural sugars and carbohydrates from Medjool dates, a little dose of protein and healthy fats from cashews, and omega 3 fatty acid from chia seeds. They’re light enough that you can have one or two a half hour before class and one in-between grueling workouts! They also make a great afternoon snack for adults and kiddos!

Crunchy Chia Energy Bites
Makes about 8

1/2 cup cashews
1 cup medjool dates, pitted
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
2+ Tbsps chia seeds

In a food processor, pulse the cashews and salt until they are broken into tiny pieces (do not pulse for too long, as it will turn into powder). Pit the dates and add them along with vanilla extract to the food processor. Blend the dates and cashews together until dough is formed. The mixture should stick together and be pliable. Remove the mixture and form into 1 Tablespoon sized balls. Roll each ball in a bowl of chia seeds. Store in refrigerator for snacking!

Vegan Tofu Scramble

Hi my little loverbuns!

Thank you thank you thank you for your incredible comments on my post earlier this week. It’s hard to put these kinds of things out there onto the world wide web, but writing it all out helps me so much, and your support works miracles for my soul! I am so moved by all of your beautiful, kind, and motivating words. I feel so close to so many of you just from your comments! I love my little RFFMBT community so much, I cannot even describe how much you all inspire me everyday! I feel so honored that you feel comfortable enough to share your personal stories with little old me! I am amazed by all of you. Seriously. I’m pretty much speechless and want to type the same thing over and over because I’m so overwhelmed by your support and kindness! Thank you!

I’m really excited to share this awesome vegan staple with you. This is a dish that I make quite often, so often that I actually didn’t realize that I never posted it on here!

Vegan-Tofu-Scramble-5

Tofu scrambles are a great way to start your morning. This eggless replacement for your traditional scrambled eggs is loaded with protein and is also cholesterol-free!

For all of you “texture eaters” out there, let me give you the 411 before you get totally weirded out. There are a few different firmnesses of tofu. I love firm to extra firm tofu. It’s a bit tougher and chewier, but if that totally gives you the heebie-geebies just reading about it, never fear: there is also silken tofu! Silken tofu is a lot softer, and when “scrambled” resembles more of a light fluffy texture (similar to actual scrambled eggs). After you select the correct tofu for your texture preference, you are good to go! This is a really simple recipe, and the combinations of veggies are endless.

To make this scramble a complete Rabbit Food approved meal, I made it into a breakfast burrito with 1 whole grain tortilla (you could also swap the whole grain tortilla for 2 corn soft taco sized tortillas instead.). Finally, a breakfast burrito that won’t weigh you down and leave you overly stuffed!

I like adding turmeric to my scrambles because it gives flavor and a yellow color that resembles eggs!

Vegan Tofu Scramble
Serves 1

1/4 package of tofu
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup yellow bell pepper, chopped

Remove tofu from packaging and strain water. Remove as much excess water fem tofu as possible by pressing it firmly between paper towel. Cut the tofu evenly into 4 cubes and store 3 remaining cubes in a container in the fridge. Place the tofu cube into a bowl and crumble with a fork. In a pan over medium heat, combine olive oil and tofu. Add the onions, bell pepper, garlic powder, turmeric, and nutritional yeast, and stir until onions become translucent. Transfer the tofu scramble to a tortilla, drizzle with hot sauce, and enjoy hot!
