BCAA Green Gummy Jello Shots

Here's a guilt-free, pre-workout treat that not only satisfies your sweet tooth but gives you an energy boost too! This BCAA jello is such a clever way to fill your belly (Did I mention you can use a four-leaf clover mold for St. Patty's Day?) without putting a dent in your macros. To make the gummy version: Try mixing 3 tablespoons of gelatin with BCAA and ½ cup of water to make your own candy. Don't limit yourself to green! Use food coloring to make this sweet treat perfect for any holiday or party.

Green Machine Fiber Smoothie

Anyone else feel like they need a mini detox after the holiday festivities? I know I do! Instead of cutting your calories to make up for it, try this green machine smoothie instead! Not only does it pack a big punch of protein (39 grams!), but it’s loaded with fiber and micronutrients! The fiber from the chia seeds and wheat bran, paired with the vitamins and minerals in the spinach and kale will help cleanse your body, helping you feel re-energized and less bloated from all those festive goodies! Don’t be fooled though- you can enjoy this tangy drink any time of year! Cheers! 😉Photography By April Hamilton

Green Chile Pork Stew

Here’s a fun twist on the classic chile Verde, green chile stew! Simmered low and slow, the meat is so incredibly tender it will fall apart in your mouth. The roasted peppers bring more tang then heat, but you can kick up the spice by adding red pepper flakes to the broth. Serve with a squeeze of lime, cilantro and a big warm stack of charred tortillas!
