Mexican Turkey  – Michele John

1 lbs of lean ground turkey


Lime juice (optional)

Salsa (make sure no sugar or salt added)

Rice (optional)

 Take lean ground turkey and cook in a skillet.  Remove the skillet from the heat.  Measure out the turkey (based on what YOU need) and place in a bowl.  Add 2-3 tbsp of salsa (your call…I like a spicy organic salsa), a squeeze of lime juice and cubed avocado.  Ratios on this one are easy.  Adjust your protein and fats to fit the goal of that meal.  If you need some heavy carbs to go with it, then I mix in some cooked jasmine rice, again, using the measurement you need to make your numbers work.   If you don’t have the high carb numbers, then pair with a great green salad.  This is good hot or cold, travels well and my entire family loves it!

The No-Protein-Powder Smoothie – David Cohen

This smoothie contains about 20 grams of highly digestible, non- processed protein.  Great when you want to give your body a break from protein powder.  Try different fruits (those used here are high-glycemic, try berries and hemp milk for a lower glycemic version that will still be creamy)

1 banana

4 oz frozen mango

4 oz coconut water

2 eggs

2 tsp maca powder

2 tsp bee pollen

(add all ingredients to blender and blend –add more water to adjust thickness)

  I choose the freshest eggs I can find when using them raw and I have never had any issues.

Instant Hot Chia Breakfast – Sheri Lynn

2 TBS chia seed

1 serving vanilla protein powder

4 oz blueberries (or other berries)

 Briefly grind the chia seeds and protein powder together in a spice mill or clean coffee grinder and dump them into a bowl.  Add hot water while stirring constantly – you’ll add a cup of water minimum but add more or less to taste, I like mine thinner than thicker.  Stir out all the lumps and it will thicken quickly.  Then add blueberries and enjoy!

Chia Fruit Pudding – Samantha Ray


fruit of choice (see flavor combinations, below)

1 scoop Sun Warrior Rice Protein Powder

15 grams chia seeds

Soak chia seeds in .5 cup water and let sit for 30 minutes.  Stir protein powder in chia seeds, adding more water if needed, and stir in fruit.  I have not tried this with whey protein,  if someone does let me know how it works on the blog or Culinary Adventures forum in Genesis.

Here are a few of my favorite combinations:

baked apples (small chunks), chopped almonds, and vanilla protein

sliced fresh strawberries w/chocolate protein

blueberries or huckleberries w/chocolate protein

watermelon (small chunks) w/vanilla protein
