Start The Day Right (Banana and Peanut Butter Smoothie)

1 ½ cup of soy milk or regular milk / ½ 2% Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon of honey / ¼ tablespoon of salt
Put down that bacon sandwich and start your day off right, after all breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Our first recommendation is a banana and peanut butter smoothie. It’s as delicious as it is nutritious and can be prepared in minutes. Whack them all into a blender and blend until smooth and pour into a tall glass. Optional is to chop 1 tablespoon of roasted peanuts and place them on top. Easy as ABC. It’s quick and easily digestible making it perfect for breakfast. The smoothie is chock full of protein which the body uses to build and repair tissue. Backed up by additional calcium, and the bananas provide probiotics that promote healthy bacteria growth in our guts. Treat yourself to a morning smoothie.

Dine in Style (Seasoned Chicken with Sweet Potato and Vegetables)
1 ½-2 pounds of bone-in chicken thighs with the skin removed / 2 medium sweet potatoes peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 large red onion cut into 1-inch wedges / 2 tablespoons of dijon mustard
2 tablespoons chopped thyme / 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon salt / ½ teaspoon of freshly ground pepper
After a long day you want to have a tasty tea and don’t want to eat a bowl of lettuce then you don’t have to. Preheat your oven to 450°F and preheat a baking tray. Mix the mustard, thyme, 1 tablespoon of oil and ¼ teaspoon of salt and pepper in a small bowl then spread the mixture over the chicken. Place the sweet potatoes and onion in a bowl with the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper.
