Portobello Bun Burger!

Yesterday i went to the movies and saw The Fault In Our Stars and cried my eyes out! Cried even more when i first read the book, but this movie… oh man! So this morning not only did i wake up with puffy eyes but had to work because today is farmers market saturday and shopping with sunglasses is not a good idea. After i had everything to make juices this week i bought my grocery list I started this Whole30 diet which is basically a very strict paleo diet ad for me its a strict pesceterian paleo diet. Saw some beautiful portobello mushrooms and figured i could do something with this.

And so i did! My brother was having a juicy burger so i decided to make my version of his burger. Hope you enojoy!!


Makes 1 burger

2 portobello mushrooms
1/2 avocado
1 tuna patty or the meat of your choice onions
garlic infused olive oil

– Add a little of garlic olive oil to both sides of your portobello mushrooms and grill 5 minutes each side.
– Start topping of your “burger”

Yes… that simple!

Carrot Spaghetti

Its been FOREVER since i last posted something and lots have happened! I came back to Honduras and started my own juicery called ROOTS JUICERY and luckily enough its the first cold-pressed juicery in Honduras. God willing it will turn out successful! I finished my T25 and 2 months ago i started again and love every minute of it!

As you may know a Paleo Diet (or caveman diet) is a diet based on lean protein, fruits and veggies, healthy fats, that means bye bye processed food. Im tweaking it a little bit and im cutting things like chicken (yuck!), turkey, red meats and just sticking to seafood and fish. Also im trying to eat more raw veggies  and introduced protein shakes to my diet. Reading It Starts With Food motivated me to start a semi paleo diet for the next 5 months. Have to shred the pound off!

Today im sharing a recipe by Oatmeal With Fork (original recipe here) that was both my lunch and dinner simply because it was fantastic. I added olives and olive juice to it just to make it a bit more salty since i omitted salt. Its both vegan and paleo so its good for your diet preference. Hope you enjoy!

  • 1 c. mushrooms, chopped

Recientemente nos convertimos en miembros de Costco y quien sabía que se puede encontrar de TODO y por un buen precio. Como somos nuevos miembros, nos volvimos locos en nuestro primer dia y compramos tanta comida que tenía que limpiar la refrigeradora y estaba tratando inventar recetas en donde podría incorporar las frutas y verduras antes que se arruinaran. Decidí hacer una ensalada de pera y pepino con un aderezo de vinagre y miel que es tan fresco y liviano que pensaran que están bajando de peso. Acompañe esta ensalada con un filete de atún y pollo Hoisin de Dan. Esta sería una ensalada perfecta para el verano perfecto y si viven en un lugar caliente es perfecta para todo el año. Buen Provecho!

Para la ensalada
– 2 pepinos
– 1 pera
– menta
– sal

Para el aderezo
– 3 cucharadas de vinagre de vino blanco
