Becoming a Morning Person, Lesson 8

So I’ve signed up for this free online “class” through Little Green Dot about becoming a morning person. If you’re interested in it, tough toenails, ’cause the class is closed. ;) But you can read along in my blog!!

All-Day Recipes for All-Day Energy

What you eat will have such an incredible impact on how you feel.

Studies show that no one diet is best, but that overall, a diet rich in whole foods will deliver the greatest health benefits. Focus on eating whole foods, and you will naturally crowd out the bad. So how do we get started? As a gift to you, I put together a whole Morning Person e-book with 16 different recipes for you to try – full of nourishing whole foods! You can save it to your phone or tablet so you have it nearby when you’re in the kitchen. The recipes are from my website and made in my kitchen. They’re designed to be simple – either easily put together or prepped ahead.

Your challenge: Make that one small change.

Here’s what I want you to do:

  • Practice making one or two of the recipes – whichever is most appealing to you.
  • Plan your meals for the coming week. How can you incorporate your new recipe into your day?

Let’s get inspired and commit to making choices that help us feel our best!

How exciting!! I’m sad that this is our last assignment, but happy that I get new recipes to try out! I’m not posting a link to the PDF, because I’m not really sure what I’m allowed to share (which is why I haven’t posted links to the Pilates workouts or smoothie recipes, either). But I will list off the names of all the recipes:

  • Sunshine Quinoa Bowl (breakfast)
  • Roast Veggie Salad (breakfast)
  • Smoothie Bowl (breakfast)
  • Happy Granola (breakfast)
  • Tropical Sunrise Smoothie
  • Berry Good Morning Smoothie
  • Low-sugar Weight Loss Smoothie
  • Spinach Salad with Strawberry Balsamic Dressing
  • Steamed Veggie Salad with Creamy Feta Dressing
  • Spicy Coleslaw with Peanut Dressing
  • Black Bean Burrito Bowl (lunch)
  • Hummus Bowls (lunch)
  • Roast Veggie Soup Bowl (lunch)

She also provides us with tips on fermenting (healthy probiotics for a healthy gut), batch cooking (one hour in the kitchen produces a week of healthy, quick and delicious meals), and sprouting (grow sprouts from home to add fresh nutrients to your food).

I’m definitely interested in making some of those bowls for lunch! Hopefully I’ll have time this weekend to run to the grocery store. And you know I’ll post my trails and errors in the kitchen once I attempt a few of these!

If you’re interested in getting the Little Green Dot newsletter, here is a link to subscribe. Hopefully they have another class soon!
