Mango Sunrise

Hello Friends!

We are sooo proud of you!  We have heard so many great stories on feeling great and losing weight that it’s inspiring for us as well!  A special shout-out to “Adam” at the Lake for his fine job at sticking to the detox and his added benefit of noticeable weight-loss.  Keep it up!

We wanted to share a few more recipes with you today.

To start off the day or an afternoon snack try the Mango Sunrise Smoothie.  With a little bit of coconut oil in the mix it will help keep you satiated without weighing you down.

*Baked Tofu

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk the tamari and avocado oil together.
  3. Drizzle dressing over the tofu season with coarse salt and pepper and marinate for 20 minutes.
  4. Arrange tofu on an oiled sheet and bake for 15 minutes.  Flip pieces over and bake for another 20 minutes.  Let cool before cutting.
  5. Tofu can be kept refrigerated for 3-4 days after baking for an easy “add-in” for recipes.

Blend first five ingredients together in a bowl and then add scallions, carrots, kale and protein.  Let everything marinate together for 30 minutes and enjoy!

Enjoy the day and keep up the great work!  Only 19 days to go!
