Store bought granola if one of those foods I never understood why they are labeled ‘healthy’, because even the best ones are full of sugar and questionable ingredients. So this is something I used to make at home occasionally, even before starting the Plant Paradox, using oats, maple syrup and butter. It was about time to work on a lectin free, vegan option and this one doesn’t disappoint. I can even say is one of the best granola I’ve ever made. In case you didn’t know what more to do with a green plantain.
Before starting the Plant Paradox program I used to make pumpkin soup occasionally, and I loved the creaminess and depth of taste, and vibrant color. Fear not, I found the perfect replacement to my vibrant pumpkin soup, using some of the darlings of a healthy guy diet: root vegetables and resistant starches.
Everyone starts The Plant Paradox program with the famous green smoothie, but I didn’t. I started it with baking orange-cranberry muffins. That says something about me, right? Joke aside, the reason I didn’t make a smoothie for two weeks was because I had no blender. I ordered a blender, waited for it to come, and started experimenting with the original green smoothie from the book, until I reached a mix I am satisfied with. The reason I call it Green Dream is because when I shared the smoothie for the first time on my Instagram, someone commented that it looks like a green dream, and I asked that person permission to use this as the official name. He agreed.
