Day 15 Delish With Dates!

Is it Day 15 already?  Wow, time flies!

I have been busy interviewing with colleges and signing up for classes!  Back to school for me!  I’ve decided to add an RN degree to my BS in Nutrition!  So, don’t be surprised if there are gaps in my posts, I will post as often as time permits!

Todays smoothie:

‘Ban-berry-date’

2 Bananas

4 Dated (pitted and soaked overnight)

Handful of Blueberries

Enough water to almost cover fruit

Blend and enjoy!

The dates were amazing in the smoothie!  I had seen others use them but I hadn’t tried yet.  This time of year dates to me are a sweet lil treat for the taste buds!  I’ve also been snacking on dried figs since I can’t find fresh ones anywhere in my area…B.U.M.M.E.R.  I’ve recently tried kumquats.  My California avocado connection, Avocado Diva, included a few with my avocados, now I’m an addict!

Curried Shrimp With Broccoli and Mushroom!

Hi there!

I know some of you are waiting for me to post how I make this fiber rich, vitamin loaded dish!  It’s pretty easy!

First I sautee 1 whole package of sliced baby bella mushroom in butter.  Then add 1/2 – 3/4 pound of shrimp.  1 Tsp garlic powder and 1 T Curry (less if your not as big a fan as I)

Image

Then I added some baby peppers, both red and yellow.  About 1/2 a cups worth.  Continue to sautee for a couple minutes.

Image

Last but not least, toss in a whole broccoli crown, cut up, of course.  Put cover on so it can lightly steam broccoli.  When the broccoli turns bright green (just a few minutes) viola!  Done!

Serve up and enjoy!
