Mango Coconut Smoothie with Turmeric and Lime {paleo + vegan}

This mango coconut smoothie with turmeric and lime is not too sweet, but slightly floral and aromatic from the perfectly ripe mango, a bright clean layer of flavor from all that fresh lime juice that wakes up your taste buds, a little tropical creamy thing happening thanks to the coconut milk, and some anti-inflammatory love for your bod from the bold and vibrant turmeric.

Even though the first day of fall is literally right around the corner, I’ll still start some of my mornings with healthy and vibrant smoothies. Especially when they’re loaded up with immune boosting good stuff like vitamin C, anti-inflammatory turmeric and the good-for-you fat of sweet and creamy coconut milk. 

Plus, sometimes as the days grow shorter it helps a little bit to have something that looks (and tastes) like sunshine in your glass 😉

There is something so satisfying about a good frittata. First of all, it doesn’t really belong to a specific time of day, making it equally as delicious for breakfast as it is for dinner. Secondly, it’s one of the few things you can usually pull together for a super meal when all you have are some eggs and a few stray veggies (okay and also maybe a little cheese 😉) in the refrigerator.

Pair it with a big green salad for dinner or grab it on your way out the door in the morning and you are 100% doing the whole frittata thing right.

Fried eggs + salad = pretty much every weekend breakfast for me ever.

Okay maybe not every one ever… (case in point – I do sometimes go for pancakes, too). But it is my go-to, tried and true breakfast for whenever I have more time than to make a smoothie or grab a couple of hard boiled eggs.

So every Friday when I stock up my refrigerator for the weekend I alllllways make sure I have eggs and salad ingredients. It’s seriously the easiest most versatile breakfast that I am never not in the mood for. It’s healthy, quick, and very delicious (<– the most important things).

And while I don’t usually like to tell people what to do, I definitely think you guys should give the formula a try this weekend 😉 The beauty of it is in the delicious simplicity. Salad of your favorite seasonal ingredients + fried eggs is an equation that never tastes bad.
