What are G-BOMBS??? Greens, beans, onions, mushrooms, berries and seeds, of course. Next time you are preparing a meal see if you can make it a G-BOMBS meal.
Here is my recent G-BOMBS meal ...
Put a little olive oil in a pan. Add sliced onion and mushroom. After the onions start to get translucent, add a couple of eggs. I added arugula, black beans, and red pepper after the eggs started to firm up. Season with sea salt, black pepper and crushed red chili pepper to kick up a notch!
A side of Fage plain, full fat yogurt. Pan roasted pecans and almonds. Fresh blueberries. A sprinkle of flax seed and a dash of cinnamon. Finish off with a drizzle of honey.
Make a smoothie of a handful of mixed berries, pineapple, 1 orange, teaspoon of fresh ginger and a sprig of mint.
I suggest full fat yogurt for several reasons. Fat is an essential nutrient. Organic yogurt which is full fat is loaded with fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K as well as omega fatty acids. Fat will satiate you and help you not to overeat later in the day. Full fat yogurt is a whole food.
You might think that this would take forever. It doesn't take forever. It may take some practice to get efficient and some discipline, but your health and vitality are worth it. Even just one part of this meal could be a healthy breakfast on its own. Just add some of the yogurt to the smoothie for some protein and fat or eat a handful of nuts.
So, how did I do on the G-BOMBS???
Greens - arugula, mint
Beans - black beans
Onion - onion (anything from the Allium family counts - onions, chives, garlic etc)
