Low Carb Green Smoothie

20160309_091034

This to me is one of the best Green Smoothies I have tried, Its refreshing and really helps energize the body with a boost of Freshness.

As always I love to keep my ingredients Simple, and this one my friends is easy and quick. You can prepare the ingredients in a baggy so you don’t have to do them everyday, that i find is the easiest.

One of the main reason I like the Green Smoothie It REALLY REALLY helps for a quick refresh when your doing Low Carb. If I find myself in the “STALL”, I re boot. I don’t like doing the Total Cleansing routine, I just swap out a Meal or Two with a Green Smoothie and eat regular Low Carb Snacks and a God Healthy dinner. Then in 3 to 7 days on this routine, Im back in action again. Actually I have to Confess, I really like the Green Smoothie even if Im not in a Stall.

This recipe is for a Single Serving, if you need to do larger just Double 🙂

I hope you guys enjoy.

Trying some simple easy recipes to help my Son on his quest for a flat Abs! Hes an active full time College student and this is going to be a huge hit with him.

Romaine Large leaves (I used Butter lettuce,its what i had, its good too 🙂 )

Provolone cheese

1 Green Bell Pepper Sliced

1 Large Onion (I use Sweet onions)

There we go!

Ok Guys, Grab a large pan or your Griddle and lets get cooking!

LETS COOK

Lets Prep! Grab your Bell Pepper, Onion and Mushrooms wash and slice. Don’t wash Mushroom just wipe with a dry towel.

20160302_125423

In a Large pan or Griddle (Im going to show both) turn burner to Med  and add Oil and Butter. And toss in your sliced Veggie’s. NOT YOUR MUSHROOMS JUST YET!

20160302_125719

Saute Veggie’s until tender and slightly brown, add Salt and Pepper, if they start to Cook too fast turn burner down and continue to saute.

20160302_130147                  20160302_130723

Add your Mushrooms and Saute just a little more 🙂

Add your MEAT, Yeah look how simple!

20160302_130900 (1)                                           20160302_130934 (1)

Saute just a tiny bit more to heat the meat.

Ok Guys, now you can put your mixture into a plate and finish this next step in the same pan, but I love pulling out the Griddle. 

20160302_131257                        20160302_131316

Separate into large spoonfuls and turn Griddle on low, we are just going to melt the Cheese. Actually, you can melt the cheese anyway you guys want too, that’s really all we are doing at this step, but PLEASE DO NOT melt in Microwave it toughens up the juicy tender Steak.

Get your Lettuce wrap ready while cheese is melting.

Using a large Spatula gently lift and place on Lettuce.

Roll and ENJOY! 

This Recipe makes about 6 to 8 Wraps depending on the size of your wrap. It stores really well and you can tote to work or school.
