Some words about SUMMER'S BLOG

I love peanut butter, avocado and oatmeal. Not together of course, but nearly any recipe that calls for these ingredients I'll probably enjoy. I have the misfortune of living with some food sensitivities but the extreme fortune of knowing what those sensitivities are - gluten (only mild, thank goodness), nightshades, lactose, and refined sugar. I'm not a formally trained chef, but I love cooking (and eating!) delicious, guilt-free food. I'm a fitness model, certified nutrition coach, trainer and an IFBB pro bikini athlete... and I eat 6 times a day. When I'm not in the kitchen preparing something extraordinary, I'm - in the gym, rushing off to an audition, at a photo shoot, studying nutrition, or planning a vacation. Hope you enjoy my site!

Blueberry Mint Basil Smoothie

I purchased a little basil plant at Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago. I couldn’t believe that it only cost $3 but a jar of dried basil costs $5! This stuff goes a long way. I use it in everything, and it makes my dishes taste so authentic.

After a grueling workout last night, I wanted to replenish my muscles with a protein shake and a handful of blueberries. I figured, what the heck, lets throw a leaf in and see what comes of it.  This shake is so tasty and thick, and the basil just lends a light extra component of yum.

I’m about to go hike the north side of Laurel Canyon with a client. I’m definitely having one of these when I’m back home.

Blueberry Mint Basil Smoothie

1/2 cup blueberries
3 fresh mint leaves
1 fresh basil leaf
1 cup fresh spinach leaves
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Sun Warrior)

3 ice cubes
1/4 cup unsweetened nondairy milk
1/2 cup water

Blend all together in magic bullet until smooth.
