You’ve probably heard the phrase EAT THE RAINBOW! Not to be confused with Skittles’ “Taste the Rainbow” slogan… this is the exact opposite of eating chemical/sugar-laden candies. It’s about having a variety of natural colors in our diet, because the more color means the more phytonutrients, and the more phytonutrients, the better for our bodies!
You know how much I love meal prep, and this recipe is a perfect summer meal to have ready when you come home from a day at the beach! Bonus points if you have a grill to toss the burgers on and really take advantage of the outdoors before the cold eventually creeps in.
This was a recipe I made for my ebook, the 10-Day Energy-Boosting Meal Plan. It was one of the first big things I did with my business and I’m still really proud of it. It was 31 pages! With 20 of my own recipes! And I took all the photos with my phone.
This is less of a specific recipe and more of a description of what I put into a bowl and tossed together, but it tasted SO GOOD I wanted to share it with you anyway.
I’m not vegan, but I lean towards eating that way most of the time, and part of my experiments with making plant-based swaps in my favorite meals has brought jackfruit to my plate. I’ve seen it used as pulled “pork” and have had it smothered in BBQ sauce on a salad at Veggie Galaxy, but I had never tried it at home, so I ventured to the Super 88 Market and got myself a few cans to play around with.
You don’t realize how much bang you can get for your buck until you get a spiralizer. Who knew there were so many noodles hiding inside of a regular sweet potato? Whereas we’re used to sitting down to a baked potato and devouring the whole thing in one sitting (nothing wrong with that), spiralizing really stretches out your ingredients, especially when you can add a few more vegetables in the mix to make it more exciting.
The weather here in Boston has been so gloomy every day and not spring-like at all, but luckily our vegetables know what time it is. In my neighborhood, the Fenway CDC has a Fair Foods program offering fresh vegetables for $2 per bag twice a month, regardless of income level, and the last one was filled with more fresh, crisp asparagus than I knew what to do with!
This is a digital cookbook with 47 gluten-free, dairy-free recipes donated by ACN grads. For 2017, ACN has chosen Community Food Centres Canada to benefit from 100% of proceeds, and we have a goal of raising $10,000 for the organization in 10 days.
Tomato soup is a staple in our house (ahem, apartment), and it’s a great heart-healthy option that can be customized a bit to include what needs to be used up in your pantry, like beans or fresh bell peppers. This week, we’re making it with chickpeas for an extra dose of protein and fiber.
Thanksgiving weekend I delivered my very first workshop! I called it Gut Toning Meals, because your GI tract is a muscle, and not the kind you can work out in the gym. We tone it up by eating the right foods that allow our digestive system to do what it’s supposed to.
One of the recipes we made during the class was Ginger-Glazed Chicken with Grilled Asparagus.
