Just Eat It!

Over the weekend I did some experimenting and enjoyed some delicious kitchen creations.


BB30s Easy Mango Wheat Berry Side

You will need:
  • One Mango, chopped in small pieces or about ¾ pack of frozen chopped mango thawed (no added sugars and such-ingredients should just read: mango)
  • A good handful of cilantro, chopped
  • Quarter or a half of a medium red onion, minced
  • Minced garlic (I love garlic so I use 4-6 cloves)
  • One cup of cooked wheat berries (boiled, drained, sea salted with a little Earth Balance)
Combine mango, cilantro, garlic, onion with a little sea salt
Mix it with your cooked wheat berries
(Give it a quick spritz of olive oil with your Misto if you like)
Eat as is for a side, or put a scoop atop some spinach for a delightful salad.
Put on your sparkliest hat, because there is about to be a flavor party in your mouth!
Yes, this is basically mango salsa mixed with grain, but it’s so refreshing and tasty while being clean , kind, and good for you!

If you used the frozen bag of mango, you might be wondering what you are supposed to do with a quarter bag of frozen mango pieces. How about….

 BB30s Mango Smoothie
  • Quarter of a bag of Whole Foods frozen mango (any brand will do as long as there aren’t any additives)
  •  1 cup of Almond Milk
  •  ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  •  Splash of vanilla extract (or pure vanilla beans if you are lucky enough to have them on hand)
  •  1 small scoop of Purely Decadent Coconut Milk Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.
  •  1 ice cube.
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into a glass (a martini glass if you want to feel fancy or in a tumbler with a bendy straw)
So creamy and dreamy! No booties or bellies are made bigger with the consumption of this smoothie!
