What I did: 1. Wash the outer shell of the head of cabbage. Cut into quarters, then finely chop each quarter horizontally. 2. Place in large bowl, sprinkle salt, and with your hands press down on the cabbage until juices start to seep. 3. Sprinkle ginger and press cabbage a little more. 4. Pack tightly, I mean as tight as you can, into canning jars and let sit on counter for at least 1 week (the longer the stronger).

Breakfast meets protein meets thick oats meets sweet deliciousness.
This quick stirrup makes for a fabulous breakfast for the morning athlete who doesn't have time between the gym and the office but needs a nutrition packed brekky.
What I used: 1 scoop IdealRaw protein powder (I used Vanilla Almond) 1 scoop Vital Proteins Matcha Collagen 2 tbsp unsweetened coconut cream 1/2-1 cup unsweetened coconut milk vanilla yogurt 1/2 cup favorite granola (I'm loving GrandyOats)
What I did: The night before your crazy busy morning, or before it starts, take 3.5 minutes, mix all ingredients together in a glass bowl or jar (with lid), set in fridge, and grab when it's time to go.
TIP: If you like your oatmeal more watery, use more yogurt. I like mine like cement, mmm, mmmm, good. Yield: 1 protein & nutrition packed brekky for the avid human (who especially likes cement like oatmeal).
What I used: 12 eggs 1 red bell pepper diced 3 cups chopped kale 1 cup chopped green scallions salt & pepper to taste coconut oil What I did: 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 2. Wash kale, pepper, and scallions, then chop into small pieces/leaves. 3. Grease muffin tin with coconut oil (I used a larger tin with 6 muffin molds, can easily make in smaller tin with 12 muffin molds). 4. Place an even amount of chopped red pepper, kale and scallions in the base of each muffin mold. 5. In a mixing bowl whisk together all 12 eggs. Add salt & pepper to taste. Whisk thoroughly. 6. Pour an even amount of egg into each mold over the veggies. 7. Place in oven, bake about 30-35 minutes, or until tops of muffins are no longer liquid. 8. Remove, let cool, and store in air-tight container or baggie for easy on-the-go breakfasts.
