The recommended amount of fruits and vegetables in the Healthy U.S.-Style Eating Pattern, of the 2015-2020  edition of the Dietary Guidelines, is 2 cup-equivalents of fruit and 2½ cup-equivalents of vegetables per day. (source)

Reading those recommendations, it may not seem that hard, but on a regular basis, Americans are not meeting that target goal.

Why not start the day with a smoothie packed with fruits and vegetables? If you’re not used to adding vegetables to a smoothie, this recipe is a great one to start off with. The flavors of the berries and bananas take over and you won’t even know the spinach is even in there!

Once you start feeling a little more comfortable with adding vegetables into your smoothie, start trying new variations. Smoothie aficionados are adding vegetables like cauliflower, kale, cucumber, carrots, and even broccoli to their smoothie mix.
What vegetables do you add to your smoothie? 

Time-saving tip:

Save time in the morning and make smoothie bags. Pre-measure the fruits, veggies, and mix-ins (like chia, flax, peanut butter powder) of your choice in a ziplock bag. Now in the morning, all you have to do is drop the smoothie contents in the blender and add milk (or liquid of choice) for a smoothie ready in under a minute.

Cookie dough for breakfast.

Yup, you heard that correctly. I love making cookie dough desserts with chickpeas. I had some leftover chickpeas in my refrigerator, but not enough to make one of my signature desserts, cookie dough bites.

I never thought I would be adding pulses to breakfast, but this fun creation adds a fun flair to breakfast, plus packs in extra fiber and protein. Remember cookie crisps? I feel like this is the adult version. Make a larger batch and enjoy these mini cookie dough bites when craving a sweet treat.

With the extra addition of these little cookie dough bites, keeping the smoothie bowl simplistic is key. Just banana, almond butter, milk, and vanilla protein powder. The protein powder creates a fluffy texture to the smoothie bowl and adds satiety to feel full throughout the morning.

Green Goddess Smoothie Bowl

Start your morning with this Green Goddess Smoothie Bowl. 
Green Goddess Smoothie Bowl
I haven’t had the best luck lately. When I was bringing groceries into my apartment, my canvas bag strap broke and the eggs in my bag ended up all over the floor of my kitchen. Back to the store I went because I was shooting a video for my Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Muffins that day.

Then, you may have seen on Instagram that I ended up with 3 stitches on my finger this week.
@RDeliciousKitchen InstagramThursday, I was at Living Plate getting ready for a cooking class and washing a mandolin and accidentally sliced my finger. I headed to urgent care while two interns continued to prep for the class. These dietetic interns just started working with me and with my little accident, they saved the day! I got stitched up, headed back and the class was ready to go. The interns were rock stars! The class was ready to go and the class was a success!
Green Goddess Smoothie BowlSo maybe it really wasn’t a bad luck week, more like a clumsy week. Yes, I may have had my kerfuffle moments, but one thing that was consistently great this week, was breakfast. This Green Goddess Smoothie Bowl was enjoyed all week. I’ve been on a total smoothie kick lately and have been making this exact combo daily. I really do enjoy the act of eating smoothie bowls with a spoon. It helps practice mindful eating and you get to enjoy it for so much longer.
After every storm is a rainbow because I am now sitting on Lake Champlain with my bff’s in Vermont for the weekend. Girls weekend!

Prickly Pear & Wild Blueberry Smoothie

Start your morning with a simple smoothie with an exotic twist. The mix of prickly pear and wild blueberries adds a burst of flavor while packing in antioxidants to start your morning off right.
Prickly Pear & Wild Blueberry via RDelicious Kitchen @RD_KitchenDisclosure: By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by the Wild Blueberry Association of North America and I am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.
Did you know there are two different kinds of blueberries? The two different varieties are regular, cultivated blueberries and Wild Blueberries. While they may have a few similar qualities, they are quite different.

Wild Blueberries have a more intense flavor than regular blueberries. Wild Blueberry plants grow wild and are genetically diverse with thousands of interlocking plants spreading naturally across fields called barrens. It’s this diversity that gives Wild Blueberries their complex and delicious flavor — an extraordinary mix of tart and sweet.
Prickly Pear & Wild Blueberry via RDelicious Kitchen @RD_KitchenI wanted to highlight Wild Blueberries’ unique flavor profile with another unique fruit – prickly pear! I was recently asked what my strategies were to add plenty of produce into my daily eating habits. My response was, make it fun! Try adding unique and exotic new produce to your regular routine so it never gets boring.
An item like Wild Blueberries, you won’t find in the fresh produce section. You can find Wild Blueberries in the frozen fruit section of your local grocery store; just make sure the package says “Wild”. The Wild Blueberry crop (99% of it) is frozen. These potent little berries are individually quick-frozen (IQF) at harvest, locking in their nutrition and taste.
Prickly Pear & Wild Blueberry via RDelicious Kitchen @RD_KitchenWild Blueberries have twice (2x) the antioxidant capacity of larger, cultivated blueberries. A growing body of research shows the potential health benefits of Wild Blueberries including gut health, diabetes, cancer and brain health.
It’s a no-brainer that I now always have Wild Blueberries stashed in my freezer.

Tropical Green Smoothie

Trying to add more fruits and veggies to your daily eating habits? Add both first thing in the morning with this Tropical Green Smoothie.
Tropical Green Smoothie via RDelicious Kitchen @RD_KitchenIt’s February 1st – how is everyone doing on their New Year’s Resolutions so far? I saw a funny post on instagram that January was just a “practice round”. The problem setting big resolutions or goals, is you have to refine them in the beginning and make small habit forming changes to help you get to your end goal.

Tropical Green Smoothie via RDelicious Kitchen @RD_KitchenOne goal that I have been discussing a lot lately this path month is simply including more fruit and vegetables within meals and snacks. Just simply go back to the basics. Are you really getting in the minimum recommendation of 5 fruits and vegetables a day? If the answer is no, this should be your starting point.
If eating healthier or maintaining a healthy weight is your goal for 2017, start here. Try to add a serving of fruit and/or vegetables at every meal and snack. If you are typically consuming 3 meals and 2 snacks per day (and now you are adding a fruit and/or vegetable to each) – BAM! You just reached the minimum daily recommendation for fruits and vegetables for the day.
Tropical Green Smoothie via RDelicious Kitchen @RD_KitchenSmoothies are a fantastic way to add both fruit and vegetables in one meal! The secret to this smoothie is the frozen avocados. Now, of course, you can freeze them yourself, but now Welch’s prepackages them in the frozen aisle. Now, you won’t have to worry about the other portion of your avocado turning too quickly. The frozen avocado makes this smoothie so creamy, almost like a consistency of a milkshake.

Black Forest Smoothie Bowl

Imagine the sweet indulgent taste of black forest cake, but a healthier version for breakfast. This Black Forest Smoothie Bowl will feel like an indulgent treat, but healthy for delicious and filling breakfast.
Black Forest Smoothie Bowl via RDelicious Kitchen @rdkitchenDisclosure: I was not compensated for this post, however I did receive free samples of Kura. All opinions are my own and not influenced in any way.
I will be the first to admit, sometimes these pretty looking bowls end up in a tumbler cup as I am rushing out the door. It’s so important to take the time to sit down and enjoy a breakfast. I personally am trying to be more mindful of that myself.
Black Forest Smoothie Bowl via RDelicious Kitchen @rdkitchenI know I’ve talked about this before, but enjoying a smoothie bowl vs. a smoothie drink (even with the same exact ingredients) can help practice mindful eating.

Making a smoothie bowl instead of an on-the-go drink can help practice mindful eating and encourage slower eating. It’s easy to suck down a smoothie in a few big gulps. By enjoying a smoothie bowl with a spoon it can help you slow down, be more aware of what you’re eating and pay attention to whether or not you are actually hungry.

Black Forest Smoothie Bowl via RDelicious Kitchen @rdkitchenI never used to be a fan of protein powders, because majority of them have a lot of weird sounding ingredients and additives in them and even have a weird after taste, but now there are more options out there from real food ingredients. I always promote real food first, but sometimes protein powders can be a great supplement to the meal. Key word = supplement. Protein powders alone shouldn’t replace a full meal. Take this smoothie bowl for example, it contains three food groups with a balanced mixture of carbs, fats, and proteins, coming from it’s wholesome ingredients – fruit, almond milk, yogurt, almond butter, and chia seeds. The protein powder is supplementing the meal to add that extra little boost of protein.
img_1742I was intrigued about Kura with it’s grass-fed dairy protein and probiotic blend. Again, the protein powder is meant to supplement the meal with adding an additional 14g of New Zealand grass-fed dairy protein, which is proven to have higher levels of omega-3s than grain-fed dairy protein.

Have fun with the toppings and add your favorite healthy options!

Supermarket RD’s Pick: Campoverde Fruit and Veggie Blenders

Green smoothies just got so much easier with the help of this week’s Supermarket RD’s Pick: Campoverde Fruit & Veggie Blenders.

Looking for an even easier way to enjoy a green smoothie? Smoothies are an easy way to up the ante of your daily fruit and veggie intake. Now your fruits and veggies can come all in one package. Grab your blender then dump, pour, and blend. It can’t get much easier then that!

I have made my own smoothie bags before and I do recommend that meal prep trick, but many are looking for convenience and these fruit & veggie blenders are the perfect answer. Each blender packet has one full serving of fruits and vegetables.
Supermarket RD's Pick: Campoverde Smoothie Packets via RDelicious Kitchen @rdkitchenI recommend adding a low-fat milk or kefir as the base to add a serving of dairy (with protein). You can keep it as simple as that or boost it up by adding ground flax, chia, or hemp hearts.

It dropped to 2 degrees here in NJ this past weekend.. BRRR. Simple tasks like running errands was brutal in the cold. I kept envisioning a getaway to a warm tropical island.
Tropical Wild Blueberry Smoothie via RDelicious Kitchen @rdkitchenSadly, there were no tropical island trips planned in the near future, so I had to improvise. Instead I created a tropical wild blueberry smoothie.
You may think I’m contradicting myself for wanting to get away to a warm place and then make a cold smoothie, but smoothies are a staple in my kitchen year round, no matter what the temperature is. Why? Because smoothies are so easy to pack in a ton of nutrition with a variety of healthy foods coming from all food groups.
Plus, smoothies are so easy to customize with various combinations, so you’ll never get bored! I always like to experiment in the kitchen with new combinations and new ingredients. One new ingredient I tried in this smoothie recipe are wild blueberries. Wild Blueberries have twice (2x) the antioxidant capacity of larger cultivated blueberries. A growing body of research shows the potential health benefits of Wild Blueberries including gut health, diabetes, cancer and brain health.

Tropical Wild Blueberry Smoothie via RDelicious Kitchen @rdkitchenI often find that certain fruit flavors, like blueberries, get lost when getting mixed into a smoothie because other strong fruit flavors take over.

Very Berry Smoothie Bowl

This Very Berry Smoothie Bowl is berry good! With protein and tons of juicy berries, you’ll feel energized all morning. 

Very Berry Smoothie Bowl via RDelicious Kitchen @rdkitchenDisclosure: This is my recipes for Welch’s Recipe Contest. I am eligible to win prizes. I was not compensated for my time.

It’s hot and humid here in New Jersey. I am not complaining. After this long winter, I’ll take any warm weather, humidity and all.

I just started officially training this week for a 10k coming up this summer. My last race was April of last year, so I need to get back into my training groove. I’ve been running, but not really structured from week to week. With this added humidity, I’ve had some pretty sweaty runs and craving anything refreshing after, while getting in some post run fuel.

I’ve been loving smoothies, but I end up drinking them so fast without even really getting to enjoy them. This Very Berry Smoothie Bowl, is thicker that is better to eat with a spoon rather than through a straw. It will help slow you down and enjoy all the wonderful flavors, plus, you get to put on whatever fun toppings you like!

Very Berry Smoothie Bowl via RDelicious Kitchen @rdkitchen

This Very Berry Smoothie Bowl has a little extra twist by adding 100% Welch’s grape juice. While adding a boost of fruity flavor, it also brings along many health benefits.

Welch’s and their team of Nutrition Experts can help explain why concord grapes, just like in Welch’s 100% grape juice can help with maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Colorful fruits and vegetables offer essential vitamins, minerals and beneficial plant nutrients, like polyphenols. And, while it’s certainly important to eat a rainbow of produce, it’s worth paying attention to the purples and blues.
