Superfood Flax Meal Cereal 

1/4 cup ground flaxseed 

2 tsp. chia seeds 

1 scoop Ancient Nutrition Multi Collagen Protein, plain or vanilla (optional) 

Cinnamon to taste 

6-8 oz. unsweetened almond milk (more if you like it thinner); you can use water in place of milk if desired! 

Optional Toppings: 

1 small apple (or ½ of large), chopped 

Handful of fresh berries 

1 tsp. chia seeds 

Small handful of walnuts, almonds, pecans, or pumpkin seeds (toasting nuts/seeds ahead of time brings out the flavor!) 

2 Tbsp. Let’s Do Organic coconut flakes 

1 tsp. Navitas Cacao Nibs 


Add flaxseed, chia seeds, collagen (if using), cinnamon and almond milk to a bowl. Mix until combined. Microwave for 90 seconds. Stir and let sit for a few minutes to thicken. Mixture will get thicker the longer it sits. Add desired toppings and enjoy!

Kale Blueberry Salad with Pecan “Cheese” 

For the Salad 

3 cups blueberries, washed 

8 cups kale, chopped and stems removed, if desired 

For the Pecan “Cheese” 

1/2 cup pecans 

1 Tbsp. Bragg’s nutritional yeast 

For the Dressing 

1 whole lemon, juiced 

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar 

10 oz. Heinen’s tahini 

3 Tbsp. coconut aminos 

1 Tbsp. olive oil 

3 garlic cloves, minced 

1/2 cup purified water

Clean the food processor, then add all of the salad dressing ingredients. Blend until smooth. 

Add the dressing to a large serving bowl with the kale and blueberries. Toss with tongs. It is ideal to allow the kale to marinate in the dressing, as this helps break it down, but if time does not permit, do not worry. 

Sprinkle the pecan cheese overtop and serve.
