Some of you know that I’ve been on a #Ketodiet for about a month now. Following a low-carb lifestyle isn’t as hard as I thought it would be. Often times I’m surprised how I don’t really miss sugar and carbs. The only that it really did suck was when I got the “Keto-flu.” – more on that later…

I love my smoothies but I realized that the ones I used to make before KETO was full of carbs and sugary fruits like bananas and pineapples – don’t get me wrong, they are absolutely indulgent and delicious – but it just doesn’t really fit my macros currently!

At first, my first Keto Friendly smoothies I made didn’t taste very good. BUT THIS BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE with Thai Coconut Milk is BOMB!!! I LOVE using my Vitamix blender. It literally pulverized everything in a matter of seconds!

KETO FRIENDLY BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE COCONUT MILK RECIPE WITH PLANT BASED PROTEIN POWDER NOMSS.COM HEALTHY FOOD RECIPES

Flavour Combination

What I love about making smoothies is that it is highly customizable. To be honest, I often do not follow a recipe and will just wing it. However, now that I am trying to follow this low-carb diet/lifestyle, I need to ensure that it is within 5% of carbs and that it will fit into my macros. So I calorie count! It is so important to know exactly what your Net Carb intake is for the day. I would hate to be kicked out of ketosis (when I’m not on a cheat day!)

Blueberries – fresh or frozen. Both are an excellent choices. Unless it is in season, I usually use frozen blueberries. They are perfect to chill your smoothie too! That way I don’t have to use ice cubes!

Milk – To keep it vegan friendly, I like to use unsweetened Thai coconut milk because of the high-fat content. 1 cup alone has 36g of fat and 6g of net carbs. Sometimes I like to use Califia almond or cashew milk also.

If you have enough time at home, I highly recommend making your own nut milk also! I recommend soaking 1 cup worth of almonds for example and only blend for that personal cup. Making small batches prevents the nut milk from spoiling quickly!

I also recommend using milk alternatives (such as coconut milk, almond milk, pea milk, or oat milk) instead of regular cow’s milk because cow’s milk has a high percentage of naturally occurring sugars (lactose) and it will increase your carbohydrate level!

Protein Powder – I am a big fan of Withinus Plant + TruMarine Collagen. It is an excellent source of clean, complete protein (25g of protein) and has Certified Organic Fermented Pea, Sacha Inchi, Sprouted Brown Rice, Sprouted Quinoa. You can, of course, substitute with your favourite protein powder!

Oils: If you don’t have any MCT oil you can simply use coconut oil. The reason why I suggest MCT oil, as the name suggests, medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil, contains medium-length chains of fats called triglycerides; it is easily absorbed and transported throughout the body; helps promotes weight loss and provides an instant source of energy to fuel your brain!

Health Benefits of Blueberries

  • Low in calories but high in nutrients – the most nutrient dense berries. One cup (148 gram) serving of blueberries contains 4 grams Fiber, 24% RDI Vitamin C, 36% RDI Vitamin K and 25% RDI of Maganese.
  • Antioxidants – excellent source of antioxidants that protects your body from free radicals.
  • Reduces Cholesterol – blueberries help reduce a predominant risk factor for heart disease by preventing oxidative damage to “bad” LDL cholesterol.
  • Anti-Diabetes Effect – helps to improve insulin sensitivity and lowering blood sugar levels.

  4. Add the eggs and beat to combine.
  5. Mix in the flour mixture in three batches, beating well after each addition.
  6. Add the pine nuts and chocolate and stir just to incorporate.
  7. Divide the dough into four portions and set each portion on a piece of wax paper or plastic wrap.
  8. Shape the dough into 2-inch (5 cm) diameter rolls. Wrap well in the wax paper or plastic wrap, twisting both ends to seal shut.

Just-Add-Water Miso, Sweet Potato, and Soba Ramen Recipe

Just-Add-Water Miso, Sweet Potato, and Soba Ramen Recipe

MODERN LUNCH COOKBOOK REVIEW ALLISON DAY NOMSS.COM FOOD BLOG CANADA

This Just-Add-Water Miso, Sweet Potato, and Soba Ramen Recipe come from Allison Day and new newly launched Modern Lunch cookbook. The natural sweetness and creaminess of sweet potato helps to create a ramen broth that’s both addictive and nourishing. Soba noodles, made from buckwheat flour (check the label for 100 percent buckwheat flour to make sure they’re gluten-free, if that’s a priority), offer a nutty quality to the dish while mushrooms and the requisite soft-boiled jammy egg give a familiar umami tang. Greens are required here, for me at least, making this healthy meal-in-a-jar (or container or bowl) look and feel three-dimensional. The just-add-water method means no accidental spills and a lighter lunch to take in your bag. This recipe actually reminds alot about the vegetarian ramen bowl from Harvest – a tiny grocer/restaurant in Vancouver’s Chinatown.

Description

The natural sweetness and creaminess of sweet potato helps to create a ramen broth that’s both addictive and nourishing.


Scale

Ingredients

RAMEN BROTH CONCENTRATE

  • 1 small or ½ large (7 oz) sweet potato, peeled and chunked
  • 1 cup water, plus more for steaming sweet potato
  • 2 Tbsp organic vegetable or chicken bouillon powder
  • 2 Tbsp white miso paste 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • ¼ tsp toasted sesame oil Sriracha
  • 1 small or ½ large (7 oz) sweet potato, peeled and chunked
  • 1 cup water, plus more for steaming sweet potato
  • 2 Tbsp organic vegetable or chicken bouillon powder
  • 2 Tbsp white miso paste 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • ¼ tsp toasted sesame oil Sriracha

VEGETABLES, EGGS, AND SOBA NOODLES

  • 4 portobello mushrooms, diced
  • 1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp gluten-free tamari
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 bundles (6½ oz) soba noodles (buckwheat noodles)
  • 2 cups steamed greens (broccoli, broccoli rabe, kale, etc.) or packed raw spinach
  • Black sesame seeds (optional)
  • Minced fresh red Thai chili (optional)
  • 4 cups (1 cup per serving) just-boiled water from the kettle, for serving

Instructions

  1. For the broth concentrate, steam the sweet potato until tender, about 10 minutes. Add to a blender or food processor along with 1 cup water, bouillon powder, miso paste, rice vinegar, ginger, sesame oil, and Sriracha to taste, and then blend until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a jar and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
  2. For the vegetables, eggs, and soba noodles, preheat the oven to 425°F and bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  3. Toss the mushrooms with the sesame oil and tamari. Place the mushrooms on a large rimmed baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes, until shrunken and deep brown. Set aside.
  4. Carefully place the eggs in boiling water and cook for 6 minutes. Fill a medium bowl with cold water. Once the 6 minutes are up, use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs from the pot and place them in the bowl of cold water to help loosen the shell, keeping the boiling water on the stove for the noodles. Gently peel the eggs, being careful not to break the white or the yolk will run out (they’re not as sturdy as hard-boiled eggs), and set aside. Then, cook the noodles in the reserved boiling water according to package directions, until tender. Drain the noodles, rinse with cold water, drain again, and set aside.
  5. To assemble, for each serving, add ½ cup of broth concentrate to a large jar or airtight container or build at home in a bowl. Top the broth with a portion each of noodles, mushrooms, steamed greens or spinach, a peeled whole egg, and sesame seeds and chili to taste. Seal and store refrigerated.
  6. When you’re ready for lunch, for each serving, pour 1 cup (enough to cover) of boiling water over top, seal, and let stand for 3 minutes to reheat fully. Open the lid, give the soup a gentle stir, slice the egg in half with your spoon, and then eat.


Notes

GO PLANT-BASED To make this meal vegan, use vegetable bouillon and replace the egg with cubed smoked tofu.
