4 ingredient Paleo Green Monster

You guys know I’m in the middle of my 30 days of Paleo challenge.


So far, it’s been a mixed bag – with some days of feeling great and energetic, and others where I want to roll up in a ball and never wake up.


It’ll get better I think – but you can read my day-by-day report on my progress and pains here.


What I love most about Paleo so far, is that it encourages me to cook healthy food. I’ve discovered some rather delicious, very healthy, and smack-on Paleo recipes – the kind that would make a cavemen weep with joy.


This one is the first of them.


Say hello to the Green Monster.

Don’t you just adore the colour? Doesn’t it make you feel better/fresher/fitter just by looking at it? 🙂


Green monsters are really easy to make.


Follow this equation to come up with your own: Green leaf + fruit/veggie + dairy.


Green monster ingredients


I used rocket, but you could try spinach, lettuce, or kale.


Rocket


I used an apple, but you could do bananas, pears, or mangoes.


Apple


I used coconut milk, but you could use soy, almond, or regular milk.


Cucumber


These monsters are very filling. You will think it’s just a drink and also plan dinner, but then you’ll drink it, and be like ummm – why you make me feel so full green monster? And then you’ll fall asleep feeling like a boss.


Green monsters are great for when you need your daily dose of fruits/greens but don’t have the time to cook. They’re insanely good for you too – make one and tell me how awesome you feel!
