CREAMY SALTED CACAO COLLAGEN SMOOTHIE
This smoothie will satisfy your chocolate cravings and have you glowing from the inside out. It’s packed with superfood ingredients such as cacao, as well as nutrient-dense leafy greens, cauliflower, and banana. The natural sweetness of the banana masks any hint of the sneaky leafy greens and cauliflower. Combined with collagen powder to add creaminess (and a source of protein!), you’ll find this smoothie’s texture reminiscent to that of a thick milkshake—without the major spike in blood sugar levels. A pinch of pink Himalayan salt pairs perfectly with the rich flavours of the cacao and the creaminess from the collagen powder. Pour it in an insulated reusable bottle, stash in your bag or purse and sip whenever you need to re-fuel!

STOVETOP POPCORN WITH COCONUT OIL
Stovetop popcorn is a game changer and so versatile when it comes to satisfying savoury or sweet cravings alike. Craving savoury? Grind some chunky salt and pepper on top. Is sweet and crunchy more of your vibe? Melt your favourite dark chocolate for a decadent drizzle. Want to spice things up? Try a sprinkle paprika, a dash of cayenne or cumin. The possibilities are plenty —get creative! (Did we mention we’ve even seen a vegan Doritos® take on this?!) We also love the quickness of this recipe —in under 5 minutes, you can have a week’s worth of grab-and-go snacking prepared.
