Good Morning, Everyone 🙂
Hope this Tuesday finds you well.
It was tough getting in the groove of the time change, but I did it. Yesterday I got in a decent preggo workout:
30 minutes Precor
Lat Pull Downs & Cable Rows (superset, 3 sets total)
Overhead Wide Kneeling Cable Pulldown & Dumbbell Row (superset, 3 sets total)
Straight Arm Press Down & Seated Biceps Curl (superset 3 sets total)
10 minutes of mat stretches
After I worked out I went to Whole Foods for some lunch and a few things I needed. Then I came home to make use of my soaking Brazil Nuts:
Thanks so much to my Morgan from Little House of Veggies for opening my eyes to the world of Brazil Nut Milk. I was stuck in my Almond Milk making rut, and was happy to broaden my nutty horizons! She told me how good it was with tropical fruit smoothies, so I had to try!
You can use pretty much the same method for any nut milk. I use this one for Almond Milk. I used to do a bigger batch, but since getting my nut milk bag I get SO much out of it that there is no need!
Brazil Nut Milk
1 cup Brazil Nuts, soaked for at least 6 hours
4 cups filtered water
4-6 Pitted Dated
1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
Place all ingredients in Vitamix or Good quality high speed blender and blend until smooth. Run the mix through a cheese cloth or a nut milk bag and you’re done!
Thanks, Morgan I never would have thunkit to milk my brazil nuts if it weren’t for you <3
1 Cup Brazil Nut Milk
1 Cup Pineapple Chunks
1/2 Cup Frozen Organic Peaches
2 T Chia Seeds
1/2 teaspoon Maca Powder
1/2 Scoop Vanilla Sun Warrior (growing on me)
I have a MAJOR thing for pineapples lately. If I have too much they give me a little preggo reflux though 🙁
Health benefits of Brazil Nuts:
Brazil Nuts are high in protein, extremely nutrient-rich and contain copper, niacin, magnesium, fiber, vitamin E and selenium. Selenium is a powerful antioxidant that works to neutralize dangerous free radicals. Some studies show consuming foods high in selenium may reduce the risk of breast cancer!
What Nut Milks have you tried?
