goji pink smoothie with sprouts recipe

Made a lovely smoothie today. Was in the mood for goji berries today which is wild because I'm hardly ever in the mood for goji berries.
Goji Pink Smoothie
Here's the smoothie recipe - it's quite delicious - this made about 48 oz of smoothie goodness and served 2 • 2 bananas • 1/2 cup goji berries • 3/4 cup strawberries • 1 heaping cup clover sprouts • 2 Tbsp raw tahini • filtered water • Raw agavewarrior protein powder Blend in the VitaMix until smooth. Pour in your favorite glasses and enjoy.

mushroom "steak" dinner with raw A-1 sauce

This is SO delicious, I can't even stand it. I take sprouted grain tortillas and fill them with salady stuff (lettuce, carrots, etc.) and this recipe. It's so delicious. I don't even like the regular A-1 sauce but this raw stuff RAWks! :-) the steak part * 6 - 8 oz portobello mushrooms, washed and sliced * 1 small onion, peeled and thinly sliced * 1/4 cup olive oil * 1/4 cup lemon juice * 1/4 cup Nama Shoyu * 1/4 cup agave * 1 tsp garlic powder * 1 tsp Italian seasoning * 1/2 tsp cumin * pinch of Himalayan salt Put all ingredients except the mushrooms and onions in a blender and blend until smooth. Slice the mushrooms and onions, place into a shallow bowl and pour marinade over. Cover and let sit for a couple hours. You can also leave in the fridge overnight. Optional additions: cut up brocooli, red pepper, green onion, ginger RAWking A-1 sauce * 5 dates, pitted * 1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes * 1/2 apple * 1/4 cup agave * 2 cloves garlic * 1 T blackstrap molasses * 1/4 tsp horseradish, powdered or minced * 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt * 1 pinch ground cloves * 1/2 tsp rosemary * 1/3 cup olive oil * 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar * 1 lemon, juiced Blend all the ingredients in your blender and serve as dollop on the steak if desired. Optional serving suggestions: Server over cauliflower “rice.” Simply process cauliflower in the food processor until it resembles a “cous-cous” like appearance and serve. Another option is to serve these magnificent mushroom steaks on a bed of lettuce with a bit of the A-1 sauce as a dressing. Enjoy!
