Is anyone else not a winter person? 🙊 Everyone loves this time of year, but I have to admit I’m just not a cold weather gal 🙅🏻♀️❄️ I still enjoy making summer-y meals like this 😋
I’m back on my bowl game with with turmeric bone broth quinoa, sautéed veggies in ghee (zucchini, onion, rainbow carrots, peppers), mushrooms, avocado and grass fed steak (cooked in garlic, pepper and coco aminos)🌾🥑🌶🥩
To cook the turmeric bone broth quinoa - rinse quinoa first. In a pot, bring 1.5 cups @traderjoes chicken bone broth, 1/2 cup filtered water, 1/2 Tbs ghee or butter, 1 cup quinoa, 1 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp garlic powder, black pepper and red chili flakes to a boil. Once it boils, stir well, turn heat on low and cover for 15 mins. Fluff with a fork and serve 🥣
Chicken Burger Tahini Bowl today for lunch😍 Not gonna lie the first time I tried tahini(which is just ground sesame seeds) I didn’t think it was good at all!!😑 It was just super plain and had an odd toasted flavor. BUT I did some see potential as a salad dressing if I could add some extras to flavor it up😬 So I mixed the tahini with some greek yogurt, lemon juice, salt, pepper + some water(to thin the consistency) and out came this amazzzzzing dressing I can’t get enough of🤗 I’ve eaten this dressing for the past two weeks and its so good. I also use it to dip my veggies in and I love it that way too! If you try something new & don’t love it at first bite, try finding different ways to eat it before writing it off completely😊
#whatsinmybowl : •2 c spinach •1 homemade chicken burger(mix ground chicken w garlic powder + salt + basil and steam in little bit of water on stovetop) •sliced carrots •1 c broccoli •zucchini(coated in nutritional yeast) •1/2 avocado(topped w 1/2 tsp sesame seeds) •tahini dressing(mix greek yogurt + tahini + lemon juice +salt pepper +water to thin consistency)

treated myself to a combini tofu bowl this evening after a hard HIIT class. also just bought grapes bc they are my fave revision snack 🍇 and I have a super duper fun exam at 9am tomorrow!! 🙃
look after yourselves in this freezing weather!! lotsa love xx
I am really excited to be bringing this class to Natural Grocers and the community!!
These bowls have by far been a super impactful part of adopting healthier habits and building a foundation to more empowering living over the years for me so I am pumped to share about what I have learned while putting them together.
No need to wait until the new year to come out an experience plant based inspiration! Check out this Nourish Bowl Demo Class that I have partnered up with @naturalgrocers to put on.
What is a Nourish Bowl?
A Nourish Bowl is a blend of nutrient-dense vegetables, carbohydrates, healthy fats, and quality proteins to make a filling meal in a bowl that can be quickly made and taken to-go
This class will show you a path to simple and nourishing vegetable meals in a bowl!
I’m heading to Stockholm tonight and Im bracing myself for the nippy weather already. It’s going to be the perfect time for soup, so I’m sharing one of my favorites here, for all you feeling the need of a bowl of comfort! Say hi to the “Miso happy Soup!
Well maybe “happy” might be stretching it too far for me since I’ve been struck by a mean influenza the last ten days, but I’m positive this period of gentle soups and smoothies has done more than comforted me, I feel positively rebooted! It’s funny but I’m feeling grateful for this involuntarily cleanse and reset 😄.
I love clean energizing foods when I’m ill and this Miso Noodle Soup was in rotation in variations during recovery - comforting and light with just enough substance to suistain me until my appetite returned. I use a homemade dashi with kombu and miso as my base and noodles and add-ins to fit my mood.
If you need this in your life right now, the recipe can be found in my first book Bowls of Goodness and I’m also posting on the website this week. (links in bio)
Also, these bowls and the karaff that peaks into the picture are from @falconenamel ❤️
Another beautiful Monday, another beautiful bowl of veggie goodness.
What can I say, I am loving life✌and I am loving #tempeh...
👉ginger, garlic, turmeric tempeh, pea pods, butternut squash, brussels, green beans cooked with soy sauce, and mirin with brown jasmine rice, @micro_mamas yellow turmeric infused sourkraut, a mountain of fresh basil and cilantro and a drizzle of @wildbrine sriracha
It has been a long time since I have cooked or eaten tempeh, its nutty/mushroomy flavor brought me back to the olden days in #butterfield dorm at #umassamherst cerca #1992 where my palette was introduced to "exotic" vegetarian foods and my small town mind was blown.
Have you tried tempeh?

Hope you’re crushing Monday⭐️!
Basic meals will always be my favourite. Bulgur wheat, black beans, 🥦, spinach and pak Choi 😊
I recognise that I don’t always use ingredients that are widely available. Remember you don’t have to eat exactly what I eat, my meals are meant to inspire. If you don’t have access to something, replace it with what you have available. You’ll still be nourishing your body and that’s the most important goal 😉. #beansandgreens#wholefoods#eatyourgreens
Do you like to eat seasonally and locally, but finding it difficult to locate vegetables in the winter? Brussel sprouts are here for you!! Beyond the vitamin C, fiber and folate, Brussel sprouts are also packed with phytonutrients known as organosulfur compounds, which protect our cells from oxidative stress and have anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory effects.
My favorite way to eat them: beet, sweet potato and brussel sprout hash, with an egg on top.
