Almond milk is a great non dairy alternative to cow milk. However a lot of store brands contain many fillers and added ingredients that are not necessary. This recipe is simple, easy and makes creamy and delicious almond milk. A nut bag is very helpful to get the most liquid from your mix, and can be purchased online for a few dollars. You can use the leftover pulp in smoothies, homemade granola bars, or baked goods.
Smoothies are a great way to eat your greens first thing in the morning or for part of a post-workout snack. The blueberries and almond milk blend together with the kale and creates a vibrant smoothie full of life, and fuel, to get you through your day!

You have to try this salad to believe how great it is! If you love Asian chicken salads, you will love this fresh creation. Free of processed sugar and less than desirable oils, you will feel full of energy after this power burst of flavor and nutrients. You can always omit the chicken or add any other protein in its place. The recipe was adapted and modified slightly from the Against All Grain Blog. This salad tastes best if you let it sit for at least an hour prior to serving, make sure you allot for that time when putting this together. This also makes a HUGE salad, so even though there's a lot of slicing and shredding, know you'll have plenty of this salad to eat and enjoy!
You can really mix this up, but here's a great starting point for a no bake trail mix. Make this ahead of time and stash a serving in your car, or purse, for when you are on the go and need a nutrient boost. You can always take an extra step and lightly toast this trail mix in a low temp oven (keep nibs out, then add once toasted) for about 10 minutes at 250 F as well.
