Hey it’s Dr. Travis Zigler here and we are
going to go over a smoothie recipe that I’d
like to call My Berry Cobbler Recipe.
So you could make any kind of cobbler with
a smoothie and we’re going to make a multi
So we're going to do blueberry, blackberry,
And I want to go over our smoothie basics.
We always start out with a couple of bananas.
Bananas are great to mask and covers up a
lot of flavors that you may not like in a
Spinach is very neutral green.
We will start of a couple handful of spinach.
I always do more than Jenna does but because
I like spinach.
Kale is a little tougher to get into because
of bitter taste to it.
So, if you’re a little nervous about green
smoothie, spinach is a great way to start,
And then there’s another base.
You put half of avocado as well.
This one is massive. and that just kind of
adds a little earthy flavor.
It doesn’t add much flavor to it really
at all but it does thicken it up quite a bit.
And so that’s kind of our base of our smoothie
and then you’re going to add things like
almond milk and your coconut water.
The thing is to not get overwhelmed with all
the ingredients we put in it and just to think
about the basics.
So, we have our banana, avocado, spinach and
we are going to put about a cup or 2 of almond
That’s your base.
So pretty much you can go anywhere from here
and so what I’m going to do is now talk
about our berry blend or berry cobbler.
So when you think of a berry cobbler, you’re
thinking of the inside which is usually berries,
sugar, flour, not flour but salt and so you
don’t add sugar or sweets.
It's going to have a lot of natural sugars
but we’re just going to do these organic
berry blend that has, this one has about 3
different berries, strawberries, blueberries,
We are going to pour some of that in a cup
I’m just going to finish this bag up and
I’m making one for 2 people.
And so if you’re making it just for one
this could be your breakfast and lunch.
So what else is in a berry cobbler.
So we got the filling which is a little bit
of salt and some berries.
Now think about the crust, the crust is going
to be kind of a flour vanilla base crust.
We are going to use some oats for that.
Nice, healthy crust.
That’s going to add a kind of crusty flavor
And some vanilla, so we use a vanilla protein
This has some greens in it.
You can also buy greens.
I’m going to add a scoop of vanilla, actually
a scoop and a half of vanilla.
And then this is a berry protein powder.
We are going to a add a scoop and a half of
So it’s going to add a nice vanilla berry
flavor to add to that cobbler.
This is a new jar so I have to open it.
Instead of having you guys wait for me to
find the scoop, I’m just going to take the
scoop from here.
So again a scoop and a half of the berries.
It’s going to add a nice berry flavor to
it along with the berries I have in there
And then also berry cobbler usually has some
cinnamon in it.
I’m going to add a dash of cinnamon to it
in as well.
And that’s your basic recipe for berry cobbler.
We add a lot of other fixings to these smoothies
We like to add coconut water.
It doesn’t flavor to it too much.
You don’t have to put much.
That just adds some nice natural electrolytes.
Instead of feeding your kids gatorade, you
should give coconut water if they are athletic.
A lot healthier.
Sugar filled with natural sugar.
Gatorade is more of high fructose.
I’m just going to add flax seed.
Flax seed can anyway like an egg on your recipe
for your crust.
That’s pretty much it.
I’m just going to add a couple of little
Just to add flavor.
Add a little more nutrients.
Again, Dr. Travis Zigler.

Grilling? Don’t Forget the Veggies! 0
Grilling? Don’t Forget the Veggies!
We were raised learning that in order to have a healthy body we need to make healthy food choices. Good nutrition fuels your body and can even influence how your mind functions. Did you know that proper nutrition is critical to eye health? It’s true! Orange-colored fruits and vegetables can help protect your vision as well as promote eye health. Carrots are a great example of this. Beta-carotene is a type of vitamin A that gives these foods their orange hue, which also helps the retina function smoothly. Vitamin A deficiency can cause severe dry eyes, which can lead to eye infections and vision loss. Vitamin A can also help you fight pink eye symptoms and other infections by keeping your immune system intact. Other important nutrients for your eyes and vision are the yellow, orange and red pigments in fruits and vegetables that are called carotenoids. Bell peppers are a great example for this. They are a fantastic source for healthy eyes. Carotenoids and Vitamin C are the key nutrients in bell peppers. Vitamin C may reduce your risk of cataracts and macular degeneration later in life.
I love to eat healthy and try to mix in some “good eye foods” as often as I can. Now that the weather is starting to warm up, we tend to grill out a lot. Grilling vegetables is simple and healthy! The first recipe I will be sharing with you is “Glazed Grilled Carrots”. The second recipe is “The Easiest Grilled Peppers Recipe”. I wish I could take credit for these recipes, however, I actually found them on two different websites. The carrot recipe is by Jeff Gordinier and the grilled peppers recipe is by Frances Janisch.
Ok, let’s get started.
Total cooking time for this dish is about 25 minutes.
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
- ½ clove garlic, cut into paper-thin slices
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for the carrots
- 10 medium carrots, peeled, trimmed and cut in half lengthwise
- 1 green onion, thinly sliced
- In a large bowl, whisk together vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, rosemary, garlic and ginger until combined. Whisk in 2 tablespoons oil so dressing emulsifies; set aside.
- Heat grill to low. Coat carrots with oil and season with salt. Grill carrots, covered, turning as needed to prevent burning, until nicely charred and fork tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
- When carrots come off the grill, toss them immediately in the prepared dressing. Once they're coated, use tongs to transfer the carrots to a serving platter and garnish with green onion. Drizzle a few spoonfuls of the remaining dressing over the top.
Prep time for this dish is about 15 minutes. Total time to cook is around 22 minutes.
- 4 red, orange, and/or yellow peppers
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- ½ tsp. salt
- ¼ tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
- ¼ c. fresh parsley leaves
- Prepare outdoor grill for covered direct grilling on medium.
- Cut each pepper lengthwise into quarters; discard stems and seeds. In medium bowl, toss peppers with oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper.
- Place peppers, skin side up, on hot grill rack. Cover grill and cook peppers 4 to 5 minutes or until beginning to soften. Turn peppers over; cover and cook 3 to 4 minutes longer or until slightly charred. As peppers are done, return to same bowl. Add parsley and toss to coat.
It’s as simple as that! Be sure not to overcook the vegetables so you don’t cook out all of the tasty and important nutrients. I promise you will LOVE these side dishes as much as your body and eyes do! Give it a try and let us know how you like them.
