Long and Lean Class = Success

A BIG THANKS  to all who came out on Sunday and rocked it all class. It was an amazing turnout and the energy was off the charts. I could not have done this without the incredible support of my friends and family, and my rock star photographer aka husband. This was our first huge event we planned and we pulled it off. I am so inspired to do something like this again. Thank you, thank you!

Raw mango pie - using only 4 foods

photo (77)

I had Jody over, from JoJo's Raw Kitchen and she introduced me to the most delicious and easy to make RAW pie.  When I think of dessert I think of chocolate. I am not much of a fruit and nut dessert girl. So when Jody mentioned mango pie, it was not my first choice, but now I have become officially obsessed! This is something that I could eat every day as a sweet treat and not feel bad about it. Seriously awesome.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup dates (take out the pits)
  • 1 mango
  • 1 banana

Directions:

In a food processor place almonds and chop until almost a powder. Add in dates and blend together until they form a paste. This will be your raw crust. Take out and place in a pie dish to make a crust. Press the paste down hard and form a base to your pie.

Cut up 1 mango and 1 banana. Place in food processor and and blend. This is going to be your "cream" part of the pie!

Pour the mango and banana mixture on top of your raw crust and place in the fridge for 10 minutes then serve. The pie stays good for 4-5 days. It might lose its bright yellow color, but it is still good to eat.

Some tips:

  • If your dates are hard soak them in water for about 30 minutes to soften
  • Your pie may crumble when you serve it. WHO CARES. Because it just tastes so good.
  • Make sure your crust is really stuck together and there are no holes.
  • If the almond/date crust is not sticking together add more dates to the mixture.

YUM! Enjoy! Do you have any raw, quick and easy recipes that you would like to share??

Kick it up! Morning Bootcamp

Starting MAY 23rd I will be holding a morning bootcamp every Wednesday at 6:15am-7:15am in the South End Titus Sparrow park. Class is open to all and will be $10. To be honest, I am not sure how long this bootcamp series will last- its up to you and your commitment to make it happen!

This one hour bootcamp will make you SWEAT and will be based on interval training. High intensity short bursts of cardio, with breaks of active movement and strength training. This will be an awesome challenge for your body. Bring a friend, or not,  and kick start your Wednesday and summer off right.
