These little bites are delicious, free from processed sugars and weirdo additives, PLUS they pack that Fat, Fiber, Protein punch!
This super fresh, easy to assemble gazpacho is so delicious and absolutely brimming with all the best late summer fruit and veg. This recipe is pretty forgiving, so if you don’t have quite enough of something, or an abundance of an ingredient, feel free to play around!
I have spent the past month be-bopping around, away from home, away from my routines, away from my typical diet - and you know what...I feel pooped!
All that change has effected the way I feel in my body, my energy levels, and my ability to focus. Luckily -- I know the secret to getting back on track in a flash: a solid morning routine and a day of detoxifying, nutrient-dense eats.
You can turn to this 1 -Day Reset if you've been traveling or if you're just feeling less vibrant that you would like. I recommend giving this a try if you’ve been feeling bloated, achy, low-energy, or unfocused. These are all signs that your body may be under stress and therefore inflamed.
A non-negotiable for me is drinking up a green smoothie every. single. day. I see the smoothie as a vehicle for the nutrition I want to be SURE that I get each day: a variety of anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals (depending on the ingredients), the living enzymes from raw plant foods which aid digestion, and loads of fiber to keep the small intestine scrubbed and my intestinal villi buoyant (so my nutrient uptake is top notch).
Dal is incredibly versatile and has become a dish that I turn to again and again for a fast and satisfying meal. The versatility is really what makes me swoon. By making a few small changes to a basic recipe, you can create a whole new dish. I love to change up dal by adding different veg - depending on the season. You can also be playful with different spice profiles, as well as different mediums for the broth. For a light version use water, for something heartier go for coconut milk. Finding staple recipes that you can easily and satisfyingly change up is the KEY to cooking for yourself at home! . . .
