    • 3/4 cup almond milk

    • 2 cups fresh-cut pineapple
    • 2 cups kale

    Blend all ingredients together, pour and glow.

    Pssst…we’ve got a Jamba Juice #SecretMenuHack for all you aspiring smoothie connoisseurs. See if you can snag any one of these five unofficial flavors next time you make a much-needed Jamba run:

    • The “Tootsie Roll” 
    • Peanut butter and jelly 
    • Apple pie
    • Lemon dream machine 
    • Peaches n’ cream

     

    Lunch

    Avocado toast, sunny-side up for sunny days

    CL1A1506

    What you’ll need:

    • 2 teaspoons Earth Balance butter
    • 1/2 small tomato, sliced
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 avocado
    • splash of lime
    • 1 slice bread (your choice, but the heartier the better!)
    • 1/4 cucumber, sliced
    • 1/2 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese
    • dash of microgreens

    Directions:

    Heat a pan over the stove on medium heat; rub with 1 teaspoon butter. Drop the tomato slices onto the pan, allowing them to sit for a few minutes on each side or until they’ve got a good sear. Remove the tomatoes, set them aside, then add the remaining teaspoon of butter to the pan and fry the egg (roughly 4 to 5 minutes). Mash the avocado separately, adding a splash of lime to the mash.

    To serve, slather the bread (toasted!) with the avocado mash. Sprinkle the goat cheese over the mash. Then layer the cucumber slices, seared tomato slices, eggs and, finally, the microgreens on top.

    To serve:

    Add the pesto to a warm bowl of your favorite pasta. Eat. Eat more.
