This is one of my favourite smoothie combinations when I’m craving something filling and very healthy. This is a smoothie you can drink for breakfast, before a workout, or when you need to fuel up for a long day ahead.
As the New Year just begun, I know a lot of people are doing sugar-free cleanses to reset themselves after a holiday full of overindulgence on sugary foods. I know some people are allowed to have the “good” kind of sugar from fruit, however, some of you will avoid fruit, even its just for a couple days.
This smoothie is definitely one of my go-to smoothies any time and day of the week. For weekdays before work I always make myself a smoothie for breakfast and this recipe has been made on average at least 2-3 times a week for the past two years. This smoothie is so quick and easy to whip up it makes for the perfect breakfast when your busy and crunched for time.
I am not going to lie that cooking tofu scrambles has always intimidated me. I would occasionally order it at some vegan restaurants; some tasted bad. Until I went on a trip to New York and had the best breakfast I’ve ever had and yes it involved a tofu scramble. Since returning home I longed for that amazing tofu scramble so I tried to re-create it and if I do say so myself I did a damn good job. Now I can stop the cravings AND its healthy, delicious and so easy to make. That’s what I call a win-win.
This tofu scramble is full of delicious nutrient-rich veggies and protein packed, which makes it the ideal weekend breakfast for champions. Red peppers are high in antioxidants, vitamin C and boosts your metabolism, mushrooms are high in zinc, the kale adds fiber and the spices, especially turmeric, are anti-inflammatory for the body. Its also warm, filling and utterly delicious and the best part is that its so simple to make, yet packed with a ridiculous amount of flavour.
