BREAKFAST BOWL WITH POACHED EGG  

PRSNT BREAKFAST BOWL

We live very active lifestyles and find the importance of fueling up with good, nutrient dense food profound. Since we eat mostly a plant based diet and do not eat many grains (we have almost cut out all bread of our diet, but we eat real sourdough when available) we challenge ourselves to be creative with our meals. Our favorite healthy, yummy breakfast bowl (that actually fills us up after a big run) is a yummy, healthy breakfast bowl, filled to the brim with good quality ingredients. You can add anything to this really, but check out the list below for what we love to add into our bowls. We eat eggs (happy chicken) so that adds a lot of value for us to this bowl, but if you are fully vegan, jackfruit is a great addition.

YUMMY & HEALTHY BREAKFAST BOWL

Here is a favorite breakfast bowl of ours that came to life by just having a good time in the kitchen. We are such big fans of eating clean and healthy, meaning using ingredients that are grown in pure soil, without all the chemicals and GMO's 🌱

Our bodies are depending on us to take care of them and through our food we can create a healthy environment. This will show both on the inside and outside of ourselves. We also believe that the food has to taste good, so by using high quality ingredients like this is also a ticket to successful, simple and delicious meals. 

This breakfast bowl involves organic fresh greens at the bottom, sourdough artisan whole grain bread, avocado and eggs from pasture- raised chickens. Drizzle organic, cold pressed olive oil over the whole bowl and sprinkle with raw hemp seeds. Top it with sea salt of good quality and fresh cracked pepper. Finish with a squeeze of lemon and jalapeños for spice. We assure you this bowl will inspire some loud sounds and make you wanna go dance 💃

SUPERFOOD SMOOTHIES with Kjersti Buaas + Chanelle Sladics

Superfood Smoothies with Kjersti Buaas + Chanelle Sladics

Being a professional athlete requires you to be on top of your health, both physically and mentally. You are constantly on the move, traveling from one competition to another and training hard which builds up lactic acid in the body. If you get sick or injured, you simply can’t perform and what’s fun about sitting on the the sidelines? It’s not only professional athletes that need their health to perform, all humans benefit from energy, clarity, flexibility and strength.

It is human nature to thrive, so how do we find that health and vitality? Lets start with food, because you are what you eat!

P: @VICTOROFVALENCIA

Even though we both grew up on opposite sides of the globe (California and Norway), neither of us knew much about the benefits of eating fresh, plant-based food — the word organic and superfood didn’t even exist in our vocabularies. As we both bloomed into professional snowboarders, most sports nutritionists told us to make sure we had enough protein, fat and carbs in our diets, but nobody spoke about the differences between eating conventional versus organic or raw versus cooked food, nor was the word “superfood” ever even mentioned. Many nutritionists — especially back then — overlook the source of the nutrients our body seeks to thrive! The food system has dramatically changed over the past 50 years and contaminated plants, seeds and animals play a large role in the diseases, poor health and mood swings that many of us suffer from. Being a four time Olympian, I (Kjersti) have seen firsthand that the athletes are being fed things like fast food, fried chicken and sugar-laden sodas, all foods that eventually create an acidic environment in our bodies and disable us from performing at our peak. Looking back, I was often sick or had a stuffy nose and was constantly running on low energy. To my surprise I was still able to achieve so much, yet I was nowhere near my potential. I am confident that the food I eat and the lifestyle I live today is the biggest reason I can still fly over 75-foot jumps at 33 years young.

Chanelle had some outside influences teaching and guiding her and she passed that education onto me.  Food documentaries are a great way to dive in! We both love Food Matter, Food Inc. and Hungry for Change, to name a few.  Once we discovered the power of food and its ability to elevate our performance and lives we started to dig deeper, educating ourselves, growing our own food or sourcing it as local and as fresh as possible. Using food as our medicine and always reading our food labels,  we developed a deep connection and passion for food and health and our lives have never been the same!

So what does “eating healthy” really mean? 

We like to say that healthy eating is conscious eating. Knowing the value and benefits of organic, local farming, the power of “raw food” and how best to give our body the nutrients it needs to recover from our daily activities and thrive! Learning that the way we eat matters for us, the planet, and future generations. Cutting down on eating meat makes for a more balanced eco system inside and outside our bodies. By supporting organic farming we keep the harmful chemicals out of the air, the soil, the water, and our bodies as there are no hidden toxins to run from, not to mention how delicious food is again? Have you noticed how conventional tomatoes just taste like water? Nutrients = flavor. Support organic, support local, its a win win! Before we dive into some of our favorite daily superfood smoothies, here is taste of what we talked about:

WHY ORGANIC?

 P: @VICTOROFVALENCIA

P: @VICTOROFVALENCIA

  • Taste
  • Keeps chemicals out of air, soil, water + our bodies
  • No hidden toxins
  • Saves the bees
  • Supports clean water
  • Supports life, keeps the eco-system thriving
  • Happy environment for farmers + animals
  • Supports future generations
  • Builds stronger soil over time vs. contaminating it
  • MORE NUTRIENTS!  This is what our bodies seek when food enters our stomach.
  • Educate yourself, don’t be the experiment! No-GMO!

WHY RAW?

  • Raw food (118”F and below) = living food = more nutrients. At that 119”F and above the natural enzymes in food are completely destroyed. Enzymes are essential, especially for digestion.

WHY SO MANY VEGGIES?

  • Test your body’s PH level, it’s likely you are not alkaline enough, an acidic body attracts sickness like a magnet. Stress, artificial sweeteners, carbonated soft drinks, coffee, meat, fish poultry, eggs, grains, and legumes (and more) create acid in the body. If you are looking to seek alkaline food options, here are some leads: Lemons, leafy greens, fruits, most living unprocessed food.  Wondering what foods are alkaline or acidic?
