This delicious, creamy roasted pepper sauce is so easy to make and allows you to sneak in some super-nutritious hemp seeds!  Hemp seeds have an excellent balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.  They are considered the “perfect protein” because not only do they have all 20 amino acids, but they also have each of the 9 essential amino acids that our bodies can’t produce.  They are also high in fiber and contain various other vitamins and minerals.


As always, if click the ingredients to be directed to the appropriate Amazon page if you don’t know where to buy these ingredients.

  • 1-2 tomatoes, roughly chopped
  1. Boil pasta according to instructions.
  2. While pasta is boiling, blend all sauce ingredients together.
  3. Drain pasta and toss with sauce and remaining ingredients.

Get a pump of greens and protein in this smoothie!  It’s packed with nutrients to help you lean out, build muscle, and detox!  It has spirulina, which is a great post-workout addition, with its protein, iron, potassium, manganese, selenium, zinc, and a bunch of other nutrients and vitamins.  It has chlorella, which also has protein, amino acids, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and a whole host of other nutrients and vitamins.  It has wheatgrass, which is also chock full of protein, amino acids, and all the minerals known to man.  Finally, it has vegan protein powder for some added protein.  I make this ahead of time and keep it in my fridge and then drink it as soon as I finish my workout for a quick and easy smoothie!
